It’s a week of the new and the old all together in one fine batch of stories. Got a hobbyist enthusiasm for early code? Have we got some news for you. Wanna speculate on what comes next? Do we ever! And do you want to know what’s in your wallet? The answer may surprise you. That and a whole heaping helping more where that came from. Just mosey on up.
It wasn't so long ago that the very idea of AT&T unlocking a customer's iPhone was unheard of, but over the last couple of years, things have improved dramatically -- that is, until recently, and no one is quite sure why.
Judging from Amazon's press release on Monday, the e-tailer is ramping up its plans to mimic Netflix when it comes to streaming original content. Needless to say, the endgame is to bolster its subscriber base for Amazon Prime, which already offers thousands of movies and TV shows as well as its original benefit, two-day shipping. Will it succeed? The answer to that question may be more apparent later this month. Read on to find out why!
It seems like there's something going on or about to happen, but we can't quite put our finger on it. Like something that didn't get mentioned. Like an event-wide "one more thing." Hmmmm, well, maybe you can spot it in this week's hottest news.
Using a Wi-Fi only iPad works well enough when you have an available connection, but sometimes emergencies strike and you find yourself wishing you had an LTE-enabled device. (Well, I do, anyway.)

There's no guarantee that another Apple event is on the way for next Tuesday, but assuming there is, journalists should start receiving invitations sometime today. What's on deck? Only those in Cupertino know for sure, but with OS X Mavericks now gold master, a release is surely imminent, and isn't it about time for that new Mac Pro as well? And don't be surprised if a new iPad (or two) shows up as well… You know, assuming there's actually anything planned for Oct. 15 in the first place….
There are just two days to go before iOS 7 hits the streets ahead of new iPhones on Friday, and judging from the increasing volume of updates hitting our devices, developers have been working overtime to get their apps ready for Apple's latest mobile operating system. Let's kick off our weekend recap with one such up-and-coming release, shall we?
After dipping its toes into the branded prepaid wireless market in a handful of cities, AT&T-owned Aio Wireless is going coast-to-coast next month, with a trio of LTE-powered plans starting at only $40 per month.
Freebies! If you're like us, you probably perked up at the very mention of that word, so you'll definitely enjoy today's recap, which includes a few such offerings. The big kahuna has to be more than 30 in-app travel guides being served up over the next few days by mTrip, but you'll find one or two others as well, so let's get on with it...
