How Big Should a Smart Phone Be?

Smart phones have a come a long way since I started covering them professionally back in 2009 they have a ton of new features, GPS, 41mp cameras, fingerprint sensors, heart-rate monitors, etc...  They have also in increased in size perhaps a little too much even.   When the HTC Titan came out it was well...HUGE at the time.  I remember opening the box to it's massive 4.7 inch screen.  That's right massive!  People made fun of me...

Here’s Why Phone Design Doesn’t Matter

If there is one thing I use to LOVE about new devices when they first got introduced was design.  There are magic designs out there.  The HTC One is still a piece of art work, the latest Galaxy device is nice, iPhone's (while I hate the OS) are very well crafted and designed devices.  But something has changed in the past few years that made all of this design obsolete.

Touch ID to arrive on all iPhones and iPads?

The Touch ID fingerprint sensor included on the iPhone 5s was a bold and innovative move on Apple’s part, one that other companies such as Samsung have been quick to follow. However, while Touch ID is a dazzling piece of tech, the software is still not at a mature stage, and applications for its use are, by design, not readily available. That will not stop Apple continuing to use Touch ID on future devices as the company has certainly...
