  Only the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Will Get 128GB of Storage?
Posted by: News - 06-26-2014 02:25 AM - No Replies


Earlier today it was reported that Apple would be launching the iPhone 6 September 19 in 32 and 64gb variants, and the 16gb model would presumably be dropped. However many wondered if Apple would release a 128GB version of the iPhone as a new capacity. Now chinese news site Wei Feng is claiming that a 128GB version will indeed be launching, however it will be limited to the 5.5-inch model.

The site says that offering a 128GB version that is exclusive to the 5.5-inch iPhone will give customers the true "phablet" experience allowing them to store many files, documents and data. That means that the 4.7-inch model would only launch with two storage tiers -- 32GB and 64GB. Currently Apple only offers 128GB of storage for iPads and only 64GB for iPhones/iPod Touches.

Apple's next generation iPhone launch is shaping up to be an exciting one as the company is rumored to launch two iPhones with larger screens (4.7-inch and 5.5-inch). The device is rumored to feature a 1704 x 960 resolution display bringing a higher pixel density, as well as an A8 processor, an improved camera, NFC, optical image stabilization 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and an all new design with rounded corners with a relocated sleep/wake button.

  Google Chromecast to allow casting without being on same WiFi network
Posted by: News - 06-25-2014 03:07 PM - No Replies

Google today introduced at Google I/O an impressive new feature coming to Chromecast in the future, where you'll be able to cast content without having to worry about being on the same WiFi network. It's all done through the cloud but allows you all the same functionality as if you were connected over WiFi.

The new technology can authenticate the users via the cellular connection to the cloud, or there'll be the possibility to use a PIN should this not be possible. This will be available to all Chromecast users and app developers later this year and looks to make using Chromecast a more social experience.

Away from the tech, we also heard a few facts and figures. There are now 6000 registered developers and 10,000 applications that hook into it. Chromecast is a top selling electrical product on Amazon in the UK, U.S., France, Japan and Canada and usage is up an impressive 40%.

  Covered Banners on Upper Floors of Moscone at WWDC 2014

Apple's WWDC Keynote kicks off tomorrow there are covered banners on the upper floors of Moscone

Appleinsider points out the existence of the covered banners, but only were able to get poor quality shots from afar.
In the two levels above, Apple has additional banners, but they're still covered up. While the floors aren't accessible to outsiders (or even registered attendees yet), is has been possible to catch a sneak peak in previous years by trespassing on the top floor of the Fifth and Mission parking garage, which is technically closed.
TheVerge, however, was able to get a peek of one in their WWDC photo gallery.

Covered banners aren't unusual at WWDC, and will show technologies and features that are introduced in the Monday keynote address. We already know Apple will be featuring iOS 8 and Mac OS X 10.10 at the show.
