By Ed Sutherland on Oct 11, 2013

Call it the electronics retailer version of limbo, but U.S. stores are racing each other to see which can offer the iPhone 5c for close to nothing.

From electronic giant Best Buy to mid-range Target, the price on Apple’s colorful handset is being slashed to the bone. How low can they go? How’s free?

As the iPhone 5s continues to be the handset Apple fans prefer, reports filter in suggesting the tech giant plans to cut production on the iPhone 5c. Smelling a potential door-buster on their hands, a number of U.S. retailers are announcing steep discounts on the already affordable handset… Read More

Did the Target App Just Leak the iOS 5 Speech-to-Text Dictation Feature?

By Cody Lee on Sep 22, 2011

At Apple’s WWDC event back in June, Scott Forstall promised us that we would see a public release of iOS 5 “this Fall.” And seeing as how Fall officially starts tomorrow, we can’t be too far away from an announcement.

While we’ve got a pretty good idea of what to expect from the new software, there still are a couple of unknowns. For example, we know Apple is working on a secret voice-to-text feature, but we haven’t seen it in action. Enter the new Target app… Read More

Hilarious Target Ad “Leaks” the iPhone 5

By Guest Author on Jul 26, 2011

We’re not sure whether the iPhone featured in this Target ad is the work of a smart jokester in the retailer’s art department, or whether someone has inadvertently leaked an image of the iPhone 5, but either way, this is interesting — especially because it seems to tie in with those iPhone 5 case designs we published earlier.

As you can see from the picture above, the iPhone in this image shares some resemblance with the iPhone 4, however, in some ways it’s different. Most notably because of those curved edges and curved back, which seems to taper towards the bottom. Read More
