Just how poorly is the iPhone 5c selling? While we'll never know for sure, at least one Foxconn factory is apparently shifting its focus to the iPhone 5s, which continues to be the more coveted device.
An Apple-produced smartwatch may still exist only in the realm of rumor, but that isn't stopping third-party manufacturers from producing iOS-compatible smartwatches of their own.

According to the Want China Times, the iOS-compatible machine can measure your heartbeat and respiration, in addition to checking phone calls and making Facebook posts.
Tuesday, April 23, 2013 has arrived, and within hours we'll all know how Apple fared during the post-holiday season without having released any significant new products. Investors have probably been chugging Pepto-Bismol for the last week in anticipation of the conference call, and as a result we've been subjected to endless speculation about the company's fate.

Americans are still reeling from the explosions that rattled the Boston Marathon on Monday afternoon, which all but consumed social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook almost immediately after they took place.

Do you remember where you were nine years ago? Some of us were probably sitting by our computers waiting for Google to invite us to join Gmail, the search giant's fledgling email service which has grown to be equally huge almost a decade later. And if that's not enough milestone for you, Roku has now sold its five millionth player since 2008! We've owned at least five of them during that time, so are you one of those who have the other 4,999,995?
It's Marcia, Marcia, Marcia for all the other iOS devices as the iPad mini captures everyone's heart last week and this week too. So we've got a few stories about everyone's new favorite middle size padlet as well as this that and the other that happened this week. Check it out.
Back in February of 2011, then Apple CEO Steve Jobs was among a number of tech luminaries to attend a dinner with President Barack Obama. Famously, Jobs had told Obama "those jobs aren't coming back," in reference to building iOS devices in the United States. But according to a new report, Apple supplier Foxconn may open new facilities state-side.
