  • iPhone 5 review: A class act

    Before we begin, I would like to make two things very clear: one, I am not an iDevice fan. Two, I love my Android phone. When the iPhone 5 arrived at Burn HQ, something interesting happened. I was asked to review it, the biggest iDevice critic in town. I should have and would have said no, but the device was placed in my palm and everything changed... This phone has been anticipated for so...

  • Has iPhone 5 production begun?

    The world wants the iPhone 5. It's a fact as solid as the aluminum Apple likes so much. And as long as it hasn't been released, rumors true and far-fetched will fly through cyberspace. The rumor mill has produced its latest tale thanks to a Digitimes report. An insider in the industry claims that production of the new iPhone has already begun. This, before any official release of the iPhone, suggests that the 7 August release date rumor could prove to be true. Unlike the previous rumors of last week, the new ones say that the manufacturer is Pegatron, a Taiwanese manufacturer of...

  • iPhone 5 to launch late 2012 [Rumour]

    The iPhone 5 is launching in the Northern hemisphere's autumn according to an “Asian reliable source”.

The iPhone 4S however, launched October 2011, so the Cupertino giant...

  • How Tim Cook disappointed Apple fanboys everywhere

    The fourth of October was a date marked down in every geek's calendar, especially those in the Apple cult. Apple’s keynotes have become events that rival Christmas Eve in terms of anticipation. Oh how ringing the sense of disappointment in the Apple fan club must have been after Tuesday’s keynote. When Steve Jobs said farewell to the company and left Tim Cook at the helm of the world’s most valuable tech empire, everyone expected Cook’s reign to begin with a bang. Sadly very little “bang” occurred in his first keynote. The affair played out like a variety show, with...

  • ‘Lost’ iPhone 5 saga: The plot thickens

    Last week the web was ablaze with news that yet another iPhone prototype had been misplaced in a bar. Some jokingly speculated that the loss of this iPhone 5 prototype was so similar to the loss of an iPhone 4 prototype that it could plausibly have been a PR stunt. No one, however, seriously believed this to be the case. Further bolstering belief that the prototype's loss was not a PR stunt, CNET, which first released the story, had written that the San Francisco police department (SFPD) had played a part in the recovery of the lost iPhone. According to...

  • Déjà vu – iPhone 5 prototype found in bar

    In what by now must seem like a marketing scheme for iPhone launches, an Apple employee recently lost the iPhone 5 at a San Francisco Mexican restaurant in Mission district. Last year, the iPhone 4 was also lost at a bar and then purchased by Gizmodo for US$5000. The gadget blog managed to escape criminal charges from Apple. The latest iPhone blunder seems to have followed a less controversial journey as it was simply placed on sale for US$200 on Craigslist by the current "owner" of the iPhone 5 prototype. The ad listing did not comment on the...
