New video series!

As its been a long time since we covered ANYTHING tech related, we wanted to try to get you all some more juicy content – so we’re going to be doing a new video series – video podcasts!  I’ll be recording both our phone and in-person podcasts, so that you can listen or watch whatever your preference might be.

The link to the latest show is below, and let us know what you think.  You can still find the audio only version anywhere you get your podcasts, but this is another option for those in YouTube already but want to still get caught up on the show.  Hit us up in the comments and tell me what you think!

It’s that time!  For all of you waiting for us to tell you if the iPhone Xs or Xs Max are “must buy” phones, the wait is almost over!  We have Apple’s largest flagship in house and will be putting it to extensive testing.  Rest assured we will leave no circuit board unturned in finding out if this new phone is worth its hefty price tag.

New Product (RED) iPhone 8 and 8 Plus available tomorrow, 04/10

Screen Shot 2018-04-09 at 3.31.58 PM

In somewhat surprising news, Apple announced today that you will be able to buy the Product (RED) iPhone in the 8 and 8 Plus variants, starting tomorrow.  The Product (RED) items support groups dedicated to eradicating HIV and AIDS in many nations on the African continent.  Apple has many other Product (RED) items that support this worthy cause, but if you were in the market for something a little different in your iPhone, this might be for you.

Different from previous years, the metal and glass face of the devices will be black, and not white.  This makes them a little more aethestically pleasing (if you ask me) and much less prone to showing smudges and dings as well.  Let us know in the comments below if you are planning on picking one up!

Apple to offer reduced cost battery replacements as part of ThrottleGate

In the time since Apple admitted to throttling performance intentionally on older versions of its devices, they had offered a reduced price on a battery replacement for any device starting with the iPhone 6 and up as a solution.  Fresh battery, no need to throttle performance.  They had initially indicated that this service (which was $79 and will now be $29 through the end of 2018) would be available by the end of January – it’s been reported that you can take advantage of this program effective immediately.

You’ll still have to make an appointment with the Genius Bar and the replacement will take about 3 days, but you’ll have a “freshie” right after that.  And for those of you looking to prolong the life of your existing iPhone, this might be a very good and inexpensive way to do that.

You can read the full Apple apology statement here and you can find the Apple support page to start your request for a new battery in your device here.  I know I’m going to take advantage of this program for my iPhone 6s – are any of you?  Let us know in the comments!

This is the one you’ve been waiting for!  Make sure you check out the iPhone X review, and subscribe to our YouTube channel to make sure you get all of our content as soon as it drops.  Feel free to leave any comments here or on the video…thanks for watching!

Let me start off by saying I think these are both tremendous cameras.  That should be the starting point for any photo comp here – you can’t really go wrong with using either of these 2 devices’s cameras.  But my intent is to showcase a bit of the differences in the primary camera of both of these phones, and let you as the reader decide what info you want to take from it.  Below you will find some unfiltered and unedited photos taken on both the Pixel 2 XL and the iPhone X – who is the winner?  Let’s find out.
