It's not often that a goliath tech company like Microsoft admits it was wrong and actually changes course before a highly anticipated new product release. Sadly we're not talking about Windows 8, but rather the company's even more lucrative Xbox One. Microsoft has responded to vocal gamers (and a little pressure from Sony didn't hurt), so read on to find out what they changed...
The persistent rumors of a cheaper iPhone refuse to die, threatening to eclipse even those of Apple's so-called "iPhone 5S" expected in mid-year. But the company may have to make some compromises to get there.
If you were holding out hope that Apple will one day produce a less expensive iPhone, don't let the Reuters story about Phil Schiller dismissing the idea ruin your day -- the news agency has since withdrawn the story.
The rumor mill is abuzz with iPhone fodder this week, but it’s not all about the iPhone 5 as you might expect. Reuters is claiming that a cheaper 8GB model of the iPhone 4 will be arriving in late September in an effort for Apple to capture the hearts and minds of the more thrift-conscious among us.
With September fast approaching and the iPhone 5 likely to arrive with it, rumors persist that Apple is working on a smaller, cheaper version of a previous model in an effort to make the price affordable for everyone. Judging from some photos leaked out of Vietnam, it may just be a cheaper version of the current iPhone 4.
BGR reports that according to an "incredibly solid source," Apple will apparently launch a lower cost, prepaid iPhone this fall. The handset -- apparently a revamped iPhone 3GS -- will allegedly sell for $350 without a contract. The source also claims that the handset should release by the end of the summer.
Hesitant about adopting the iPhone because of its massive price tag? Buying an unsubsidized iPhone can be a bit pricey for some, especially if you're incredibly eager and don't have the upgrade discount for a new handset. Fortunately for the frugal, Apple CFO Tim Cook told Bernstein Research analyst Toni Sacconaghi this week that Apple's looking at the prepaid market for its business strategy.
