Google Goes All-Out with Chromecast, Nexus 7, Android 4.3, and Play Games

In what was supposed to be a “breakfast with Google” style event this morning, there were all kinds of rumors of what Google was going to announce today and just like everyone’s favorite Christmas memory, we got everything that we wanted and more. The rumors were generally along the lines of Android 4.3 and a new Nexus 7, which were both announced today. The Play Games app was announced at Google IO but is now…

Apple Developer Center Status Update

After six days of Apple’s developer site being down, Apple has given us a full status update of when to expect the developer site to be back up and running and when to expect the next beta editions of both iOS 7 and Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

iOS 7 Beta 4 Release Coming Monday 10:00 am PDT

By Richard Woods Since the announcement of iOS 7 at WWDC on June 10, Apple has been pretty religious about giving us bi-weekly updates to the iOS 7 Beta release. The first download, which was barely functional was available that day but only for the iPhone. iOS 7 Beta 2 came two weeks later on June 24 and was the first to be available for the iPad but still lacked much functionality. July 8 was…

Microsoft Drops the Price of the Surface RT by $20 (not a misprint)

By Richard Woods There’s a brand new price for the Surface RT and that’s $350. Microsoft, along with the rest of the known universe is promoting it as a $150 markdown. Sounds like a great deal right? Well it’s not. In fact it’s hardly true. The original price of the Surface RT is as follows: $499 for the 32 GB tablet, $599 for the 64 GB tablet or the 32 GB tablet bundled with a…
