Apple TV vs. Amazon Fire TV: Which one should you get?

Fire TV, is Amazon's answer to the Apple TV, and to other options like the Roku 3 and the Google Chromecast. Fire TV brings Amazon Instant Video, Showtime Anytime, and tons of games to your big screen TV. Of course it won't play iTunes content, which means anything you've bought on your iPhone or iPad is of no help to you. If you're not big on iTunes, or if you just want to try something new, could the Fire TV be a better choice?

21.5-inch iMac vs. 27-inch iMac: Which all-in-one desktop Mac should you get?

Apple's iMac rewrote the company's fortunes at a time when Apple desperately needed a hit. The year was 1998. Steve Jobs had returned to take the helm of the ailing company, but Apple had spent years churning out poorly-differentiated beige boxes. Out comes a translucent blue all-in-one computer unlike anything else on the market. It sold like wildfire and set off a design renaissance in personal computing: within a couple of years, everyone was churning out colorful, cheerful PCs that mimicked Apple's hit system. Fast forward to the modern day: the iMac has undergone some radical changes. Gone is the translucent case; gone is the bulky CRT display. In their place is an incredibly elegant flat panel all-in-one design that has gotten progressively thinner over the years as Apple has done everything it can to get the computer itself out of the way of the computing experience. Within the iMac product line, however, there are a lot of options to consider, so let's take a look at what Apple is offering.

Still want an iPhone 5? Here's where to buy one in the UK!

So, you were planning to upgrade to the iPhone 5 until last week when Apple said it would be discontinued. While the iPhone 5c is essentially the same phone inside, we get it; colorful plastic isn't for everyone. The iPhone 5 has that same metal clad exterior as the new iPhone 5s, and for some that's the differentiator. The good news for UK buyers; there are still plenty of places you can pick one up. You might not have long, but if you want one, here's where to go!

Three vs O2 vs EE vs Vodafone: Which UK iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c carrier should you get?

2013 iPhone buyers guide: How to choose between Three, O2, EE, Vodafone or alternatives such as Virgin Media or GiffGaff for your iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c!

If you're in the U.K, choosing a carrier for your new iPhone 5c or iPhone 5s is a little tougher than last year. 12 months ago the iPhone 5 launched as the first LTE enabled iPhone, and better yet, the UK was getting it. If you call getting it buying a phone at launch on the promise that it would work on one carrier once they flipped the switch later in the year. This time around things are very, very different.

Rogers vs. Bell vs. TELUS: Which Canadian iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c carrier should you get?

2013 iPhone buyers guide: How to choose between Rogers, Bell, TELUS, their discount Fido, Virgin Mobile, and Koodo subsidiaries, and alternatives like WIND and Mobilicity for your iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c!

Once you've decided you're getting a new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c, and picked your model, capacity, and color, you still need to choose your carrier. If you're in Canada, that means the big-three carriers of Rogers, Bell, and TELUS, their lower-price subsidiaries, and a few upstarts. All of the big three have confirmed that they'll be offering the latest and greatest iPhones, though none of them nailed down pricing, Apple announced $199 on a two-year plan for the iPhone 5s, and $99 on contract for the iPhone 5c, and it's safe to assume the Canadian carriers will stay in line with that. So which carrier should you go with? We've chewed through the plans and coverage, and here's what we've found!

iPhone 5s vs. iPhone 5c vs. iPhone 4s: Which iPhone should you get?

2014 iPhone buyers guide: How to choose the perfect high-end iPhone 5s, less-expensive iPhone 5c, or zero-dollar iPhone 4s for you!

Once you know you're getting an iPhone and now, you need to decide which iPhone you want to get. While some might consider the the latest, greatest iPhone 5s a no brainer when it comes to their next purchasing decision, others might think the funner, less expensive iPhone 5c, or even the hold-over iPhone 4s is a much better value. If you're on-contract, you'll be paying a couple thousand dollars over the next couple of years anyway, so a few hundred for up-front may not matter to you. However, if you don't have that couple extra thousand up front, especially if you're going off-contract, up-front cost really will matter. It's important to really run the math on this and see what suits you best. So, premium, popular, or passé, which one should you get?

Green vs. blue vs. yellow vs. pink vs. white: Which iPhone 5c color should you get?

More than any iPhone in history, the iPhone 5c is all about color and personality. It comes in hard coated polycarbonate - think plastic, but way classier! - in fun, vibrant shades of green, blue, yellow, pink and white. Color is so personal, so distinctive, but more colors mean more to choose from, and can also mean a more difficult choice! If you're having trouble picking your particular spot on the iPhone 5c rainbow, we're here to help!
