Will Sonys Apple TV competitor succeed? And will the iPhone 6 be released in September or October? Make up your mind.. and other thoughts on tech


Japanese carrier Docomo wants to move your phone's SIM card into a wearable:

The Portable SIM, as Japan's Docomo is calling it, will combine your tiny mobile card with Bluetooth and NFC to make a standalone authentication device, allowing users to 'wave' the portable over tablets and smartphones to connect and login to phone networks, transferring information, like phone numbers and login details and opening up the possibility of multiple devices with a single SIM card.

Interesting idea. Maybe we will see Apples iWatch with a SIM card tray?


Photos show off cases allegedly made for the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6s:

The cases are supposedly for the Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 6s. The former has a 4.7 inch screen, while the latter carries the phablet-sized 5.5 inch glass. We can get an idea about how big both new versions of the iPhone will be, just by comparing the size of the cases to the Apple iPhone 5.

Could be real, but could still just be guesses from the case makers.


PlayStation TV Vs. Apple TV: How Sony will knock off Apple | BGR:

Sony unveiled the $99 set-top box for the North American market at its press conference, showing that it’s serious about winning back consumers’ eye balls and keeping them on Sony products with more than just PlayStation 4. For an additional $40 (for a total of $139), consumers can add a PlayStation DualShock 3 controller, an 8GB memory card, an HDMI cable and a voucher for The Lego Movie video game.

Sonys Apple TV competitor. Could be a success. Sony is doing most things right at the moment.


iPhone 6 Release Date: September iPhone 6 launch, October iWatch debut | BGR:

“Our visit provided us with incremental confidence in the ramp of Apple’s product pipeline this fall,” White wrote in a note to clients obtained by BGR. “For example, our research indicates that Apple will launch the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in September, and we believe the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 could be announced at a similar time or shortly thereafter in October. As such, we are confident that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will be launched this year.”

I don't believe in all these “reports”. The next iPhone will of course be released in September as usual. And if Apple will release an iWatch it will probably be announced on the same event. It's quite boring to read these “reports” daily that either says September or October… Make up your minds for god sake..


Skype for iPhone is getting a major update next week | Apple news, reviews and how-tos since 2004:

According to the developers, the app is now five times faster than before, creating a smoother experience overall when switching back and forth between conversations, favorites, and contacts. In addition, battery usage for the app has reportedly been decreased.

I think I must be one of the very few people that still haven't used Skype. Ever. And I can't see why I should. I never even talk in a phone so why should I use Skype? I'm all for text, email, Twitter, Google+, SMS, iMessage and so on.
