Just when you thought that addiction to Flappy Bird was over, the creator of the mobile gaming sensation is threatening to return the time sucking title to App Store virtual shelves. But there's plenty more news to be had in our daily recap, so hit the link and read on to find out more...
That iPad Air you bought over the weekend is good for a great many things, but if you happened to invest a little extra into the Wi-Fi + Cellular model, you'll find it has the potential to be the best LTE-equipped mobile hotspot ever.
The world of wireless devices is changing rapidly, and carriers have to move quickly with it or face extinction. But rather than making big, bold moves like scrappy T-Mobile, AT&T is phasing out traditional plans and forcing new customers onto Mobile Share.
We don't know about you, but it's been a long week and we're looking forward to some vacation time in the weeks ahead! Apparently the folks at our favorite tech companies are working through the summer, however, because there's some cool stuff on the way judging from Thursday's headlines, which we put into snack-sized form to kick off your Friday right here...
You might be wondering: "What can a hotspot do for me?" Wonders, actually. It can turn your phone into a nifty little portable Mi-Fi so that you can hook up your iPad, MacBook, or other neighboring iOS devices to it to get on the internet via your phone's wireless connection. Sure, it'll be slower than Wi-Fi, and you'll need to have an unlimited data plan lest you get charged an arm and a leg, but it's a great way to really turn your iPhone into the supercharged mini computer that it really is. Read on and we'll show you how to do it.
It's not much of a surprise, especially now that rival Verizon Wireless has already introduced their own service, but AT&T has finally made good on its promise to introduce shared data plans -- and won't be forcing current customers to use them if they don't want to.
One of the iOS 6 features we're most looking forward to is FaceTime calls over a cellular connection -- no more being restricted to Wi-Fi only! But AT&T users might want to temper their excitement with a dose of reality.
Still feeling that post-Apple event hangover? We feel your pain, but look at the bright side: In just over one week, you’ll have a shiny new iPad to play with, and if you happened to invest in a 4G LTE model running on Verizon, you’ll even get to use that cool Personal Hotspot feature! Didn’t hear the news about that yet? Sounds like you need to keep reading for these and other updates from around the tech world for this Thursday, March 8, 2012.
