Retailers make mistakes from time to time, but they can usually be worked out with customer service. That definitely wasn't the case with a Canadian woman who purchased a new iPad from Target on Black Friday, only to find out it was already full of someone else's data -- and rather than return to the store, she tipped off the local news instead. That story and a handful of new product info kicks off our Wednesday morning news coverage!
Lots of cool stuff to report on for this mid-month Tuesday, but the lead story won't be good news for those of you who have been vacillating about grabbing an iPhone 5 on T-Mobile US -- the handset will now cost you an extra 50 bucks compared to last week, proving once again that you snooze, you lose. The rest of our Monday recap is better news, with the exception of AT&T and HTC, who appear to have a loser on their hands with Facebook Home...
We have to confess, we don't really get the attraction to vinyl records in the year 2013. Beyond supposedly sounding "warmer" than digital music, they're just a pain to maintain and use -- a problem that Amazon's AutoRip service hopes to make easier.
When was the last time you bought a music CD? For many of us, the answer is probably "quite some time ago," but e-tailer Amazon is attempting to merge the old with the new by debuting its new AutoRip service.
Apple may be winding down their calendar year, but Cupertino continues to roll out retail stores across the planet, with new locations opening in Hong Kong and several other international cities this weekend. Sure, your weekend plans are probably less ambitious than that, but why not take a gander at a few other things happening in the tech world before you call it a week?
If you were born more than 30 years ago, you probably remember the Atari 2600. And that means you probably remember the days when developer Activision was pumping out all kinds of cool game cartridges for the platform, including a personal favorite of ours which is making the jump to iOS today. Need a clue? Why, just keep reading our recap for Thursday, August 9, 2012 and find out...
It seems as if Amazon has waved the white flag of surrender against Apple's iTunes Match today, beefing up its Cloud Player service with a few features that sound awfully familiar to iTunes users. But hey, the more the merrier, and we're quite happy to have all of our Amazon MP3 purchases available for redownload just the same. While you wait for Cloud Player to scan and match your own music library, why not take in today's recap for this terrific Tuesday, July 31, 2012?
Eager customers are starting to receive their new MacBook Pro with Retina Display models (we know because we’re looking at one right now!) as WWDC 2012 moves over the mid-week hump. Meanwhile, there’s plenty of other stuff going on in tech that you might have missed, so read on for the latest news for this Wednesday, June 13, 2012.
So here’s a curious thing: Head over to the Apple Online Store and stare at the main page for a moment or two. Notice anything different from yesterday? (Go ahead, look again… we’ll wait.) If you answered “no ‘new’ banner on the Mac Pro,” pat yourself on the back! Apparently Apple felt the heat from Mac Pro fans who were not amused by the not-so-new “refresh” and subsequently removed the “New” designation accordingly. But that’s not all we have for you today -- read on to find out everything else making news for this Tuesday, June 12, 2012.
