Starting yesterday, an Australian by the name Lindsay Handmer has been camping outside Sydney’s main CBD Apple store to be one of the first worldwide to purchase the latest iPhone. A brave venture, considering that when the device will go on sale is still unknown; even crazier is the fact that Apple’s keynote only happens tomorrow.
UPDATE: Check out our Galaxy Note5 Telco comparison post.
Digi has finally revealed its contract offering for the Galaxy Note5 and the S6 edge+ phablets that are priced outright at RM2,699 and RM3,099 respectively. Unlike other telcos, Digi offers both devices in both 12 month and 24 month contract options. As usual, you get to pick any of their new SmartPlan offering which are catered for either more voice calls or more data usage.

Android Wear isn’t exclusive to just Android phones anymore. Google has just announced the availability of Android Wear for iOS, allowing iPhone users to pair with a wide variety of smart watches from Motorola, LG, Samsung, Huawei and ASUS.
To pair, just install the Android Wear app which is supported for iPhone 5 and above, running at least iOS 8.2. However at the moment, only the LG Watch Urbane is supported but Google promises that support for more models are on its way.
The rumour mill has been circulating, thanks to the the European mobile insiders saying that the latest iPhone will be available for sale on September the 18th – 9 days after their keynote supposedly on the 9th, which is in-line with Apple’s habits of starting sales two Fridays following the keynote.

From now until 31st July, you can trade up from any smart phone and enjoy extra savings when you sign up with Maxis. According to them, they will accept any device even though it’s not functioning anymore, as long as there are no signs of bloated battery, and if it’s an iPhone, it has to be unlocked.
All models will be accepted from the old non-touch enabled feature phones to the new mainstream models. If you lost the box and original charger, no worries as Maxis requires just the phone for this programme. Just make sure it is in good condition with a stylus included (if it originally comes with one).
So much does your old phone cost? Let’s find out.
Priced beyond the grasp of mere mortals, the Apple Watch Edition is the most expensive smart watch you can get right now. But the astronomical RM40,000 price tag per watch is not stopping the richest man in China — Wang Jianlin — to buy not one, but two. But then again, with a name like “Wang” its pretty easy to see why he is the richest man in China.
Anyway, back to the story. If buying two RM40,000 smart watches is not outrageous enough for you, then this will make you go WTF. The pricey digital timepieces are worn by a dog!
But this is no ordinary dog. Wang Sicong, the son of Wang Jianlin, posted on his dog’s Wiebo account (yes, the dog has a Weibo account) pictures of the family Husky flaunting two gold Apple Watch Edition, one each on its front paws, with the caption: “I have new watches! I’m supposed to have four watches since I have four long legs. But that seems too tuhao so I kept it down to two, which totally fits my status. Do you have one?”
BTW if you don’t already know what is the meaning of “tuhao”, read here.
You know selfies are important when smart phone brands make narcissist-focused devices like the Sony Xperia C4 and ASUS Zenfone Selfie. Now it appears that Apple could be jumping onto the selfie bandwagon as well for its upcoming iPhone that’s expected to launch by end of this year.
In the new Apple iOS 9 developer preview, there’s a code that suggests support for Full HD FaceTime and high 240fps frame rate video recording as well. The biggest surprise is having to support a flash for its front facing camera. This opens up a possibility that the new iPhones may come with a front facing flash which offers better lit selfies in the dark. At the moment, most of its flagship rivals like the Galaxy S6 are boasting better low light shots with the use of faster f/1.9 lens.
For the upcoming iPhone, Apple is expected to make a jump to 12MP for its main camera. They have been sticking to having just 8MP since 2011 with its iPhone 4S to the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. For the front camera, they could be bumping its 1.2MP shooter to something higher, since most flagships are sporting at least 5MP these days.
If you take lots of selfies, is having a front flash a big deal to you?

Apple had unveiled its new iOS 9 at WWDC15, marking the 9th generation of its mobile platform. While on the surface it doesn’t look radically different since iOS 7, the new version brings a couple of major refinements for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch which are big on productivity and intelligence.
In a nutshell, iOS 9 is supposed to work harder for you, to give you what you want based on your past and current behaviour. For those using the iPad for work, iOS 9 offers better multi-tasking features which has been present on other tablets in the market. It is safe to say that Apple has gotten some inspiration from its rivals.
Head after the break for our list of 9 things to look forward to in the upcoming iOS upgrade that’s due end of this year.
HTC has announced its new blinged-up HTC One M9 for the UEFA Champions League season that comes in 24 Carat Gold. To spread the word quickly, twitter is probably one of the best way to do it but there’s a little boo-boo that could spoil it all.
When HTC tweeted the new device, one of its photos showed a reflection of a competing device.
