Well, we're entering the home stretch of the last few weeks before the release of the iPhone 6. Have the spate or articles and leaks and so on dampened enthusiasm or stoked it? Guess we'll find out soon enough. At the very least, this week's been heavy on the iPhone 6 "news" so let's see what we have in the hopper for Labor Day weekend.
Near-field communication (NFC) has wound up in a lot of Android devices over the last few years, enabling retail shoppers to pay with a tap. With each passing year, Apple has been rumored to finally adopt such technology, so it should come as little surprise to see it surface again in 2014.
We have no complaints with our iPhone 5, but if you were among those disappointed that the handset didn't introduce near-field communication (NFC) to iOS, a new Kickstarter campaign might be just what you're looking for.
Well, much like the end of last week, it's another great day to be Apple. The fallout from the Samsung trial verdict is still reaping rewards for Cupertino, even as things get all the more complicated. Sure, it's going to be a while before Samsung will ever cough up any money for damages, but the win gave Apple shares a significant boost today.
