Late last week, Apple sent out invites for its ‘Let’s take a field trip’ event on March 27. The event is squarely focused on teachers and students if the tagline accompanying the event invite is to be believed. The event venue, Lane Tech College Prep High School in Chicago, further reaffirms that. This is the first time that Apple is holding an event in a college instead of one of its usual auditoriums.
A new camera phone champion hits the market (the Samsung Galaxy S9), and it’s time for another super-detailed comparison. All the photos here (bar one) are deliberately shown in low light.

Or do they?
Bitcoin is a phenomenon of the digital age, a currency without borders or regulation, a form of money that is totally anonymous – and, as a result, it has been taking off slowly but surely over the last five years, especially among geeks and tech-enthusiasts.

Here’s a selection, hopefully with some variety, to spark your imagination and get you going with crypto-currencies.
Picking the best phones in the world is always a) incredibly hard, and b) terrific fun. Thankfully. This being an iOS-centric site, you’d expect an Apple iPhone at number 1 and you’d be right.

Computer golf has been a tradition going back 30 years, right back to the days of CGA and EGA monitors on PCs. And with palmtops/PDAs and then smartphones, golf games have been available and popular at every stage. Seems that ‘a good walk spoiled’ is better when powered by a CPU and without the fresh air!

As we bid farewell to 2015 and start 2016, it’s only natural that we look back at what Apple did last year in anticipation of what the company has in store for us in 2016.

With tablets sale declining and the iPads being the worse hit, all eyes are set on the upcoming iPads from Apple to help give the tablet market a much needed boost. Last year, the company unveiled the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3, which failed to capture consumer’s interest.
If you think the Apple Watch is difficult to get hold of, you should try obtaining a limited-edition Apple product from the past. They’re almost impossible to find, and those that do pop up inevitably sell for a fortune. Here are 7 limited-edition Apple products that you’ll probably never own.
