Apple TV v Chromecast v Roku v Fire TV: Which would you choose?

Apple TV v Chromecast v Roku v Fire TV. Which would you choose?

We're lucky to be blessed with so many good options when it comes to streaming online media. The space recently got a little more crowded with Amazon introducing its first effort, the Fire TV. And, while we're naturally fans of the Apple TV in these parts, the fact we're spoiled for choice is nothing but good. More choice also means that we're more likely to find one that meets our own specific needs. So which would you choose? And why?

Do you want to see gaming included on the next Apple TV?

Do you want to see Gaming on the next Apple TV?

Amazon dropped a bomb this week with the introduction of its Fire TV set-top box and included gaming capabilities. It's a similar yet different product to our own Apple TV, but it does give us plenty to look at when thinking about what we'd like to see next from Apple. So, would you like to see integrated gaming included on the next version of the Apple TV?

WWDC 2014 wallpapers for iPhone and iPad

You know the drill. Apple has announced WWDC 2014 and that means there's new artwork to go along with it. This year it's a classic rainbow of app icon shapes whose negative space reveals the distinctive top of the Apple logo. We'll leave it to others to engage in the usual Apple-mancy, to read the artwork Apple leaves and try to determine if it means color displays on iWatch, icon scaling for a big screen iPhone 6, a new palette for iOS 8 or OS X 10.10 Syrah or — my personal choice — just a high-impact look by Apple's typically excellent graphic design team. But what's really important for now, some two months out, is... wallpapers!

Grab the iPad version up top, the iPhone version below, and rock your 6 colors from now until Keynote day!

Where could Apple go with the iPhone 6 and Apple A8 chipset?

Last year Apple launched their second generation custom CPU as part of the Apple A7 system-on-a-chip found in the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and iPad mini Retina. Codenamed "Cyclone" it used the ARMv8 instruction set and was an industry first 64-bit. Thanks to some sleuthing and some new commit logs, Anand Lai Shimpi has presented a ton of technical details on what Apple has accomplished to date. Moreover, he's gone into the iPhone 6 and Apple A8 SoC, and what we might just see this year.

Would you get a HTC One (M8) style Dot View case for your iPhone?

Would you get a HTC One style Dot View case for your iPhone?

One of the more awesome new features that came with the launch of the new HTC One (M8) has given us a quick run through of it in the video up top. It looks awesome, and has HTC created a case that you'd love to have for your iPhone?

It isn't all out gimmick, either. The case actually has a capacitive layer so you can uses gesture controls to answer and reject calls, activate voice dialing, and even double-tap to turn on the Dot View display. But it looks cool as hell – or so we think!

Will you be getting Office for iPad?

Will you be getting Office for iPad?

So, it's finally happened. Microsoft Office is finally on the iPad after Microsoft formally introduced it at an event today. Office is one of those packages that some absolutely live in, and it's still one of the very best at what it does. As the iPad has grown in popularity over the years, Office has been noticably absent. But now that it's here, will you be getting it?
