Microsoft has recently released another ad. As you might have guessed, in the short video one of Apple's products is compared to one of Microsoft's products. To be honest, I don't understand how a tablet can be compared to a laptop with normal keyboard, operating system and completely different form factor. I should probably ask the guys from Redmond as they seem to be comparing Apple's MacBook Air with their Surface Pro 3 on a regular basis.
Anyway, let's get back to the most recent commercial. This is the second ad from the so-called MacBook vs. Surface Pro 3 series. It is entitled "Winter Wonderland" and is available below.
A well-known designer named Martin Hajek has recently created two new iPhone concepts. What is interesting about these concepts is that they feature immensely large top-to-bottom displays. Well, frankly speaking, because of such display, each handset looks a bit awkward, nevertheless, I believe you should take a look. The photos and the author’s description of the new iPhone concepts are available below.
Apple has provided the iMore reporters with an official comment on the recently-discovered piece of malicious software called Masque Attack. The guys from Cupertino claim they are unaware of any users who encountered with the issue. Moreover, according to Apple's representative, the company makes everything possible to encourage users to download software only from reliable repository, which is the App Store. When they ignore all the security warnings and download apps from third-party sources, they are responsible for all the consequences themselves.
The guys from Cupertino have recently released three new Safari beta-versions, namely, Safari 8.0.1, Safari 7.1.1 and Safari 6.2.1 to developers for testing. These betas are designed to work on different OS X versions and contain a wide number of bug fixes and security improvements.
According to what usually-reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo writes, Apple's long-anticipated 12.9-inch or 12.2-inch iPad Pro won't enter mass production until the second quarter of the next year. Kuo believes that the thing that will push the production of the large tablet back is a brand new display, which is currently at the development stage.
A new high-resolution video showing the construction site of Apple's Campus 2 has been recently uploaded to YouTube. The short clip shot with the help of a drone equipped with a camera gives us a closer look at the structure that has been built on the foundation of the would-be headquarters over the past few weeks. Well, I must admit the construction workers do their job very and very quickly.
With growing popularity of smart devices, like smartphones and tablets, most users demand wireless and mobile features from audio systems. That is why most modern speakers support bluetooth connectivity. Bluetooth helped us to get rid of audio cables. But what about power cords? Today we will take a look at Creative MUVO 20 - portable mobile wireless speaker with internal battery.
Nearly three weeks after the release of the long-anticipated OS X Yosemite, which contained a wide number of design tweaks, new features and deeper integration with iOS 8, Apple on Monday seeded a new OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite beta to developers for testing.
Microsoft earlier today released a new ad, where it compared the Lenovo Yoga 3 convertible laptop with Apple's MacBook Air. The commercial is entitled "Let's Dance" and it offers us a closer side-by-side look at both devices. If you have time and mood, you may watch the short video below.
More than a month after Apple, Microsoft has today officially announced its smartwatch. The new wearable device is called Microsoft Band and I must admit it is totally different from the Apple Watch and other market rivals. It should be noted, however, that it is very difficult to call the new gadget a smartwatch; because of its design and the price tag of $199, it is rather a fitness tracker.
According to the latest report from Chitika, OS X Yosemite adoption rate is a bit higher than the adoption rate of OS X Mavericks last year.

In case you don't know, last year the adoption rate of OS X Mavericks was 12.4%.
The August Smart Lock is now available for purchase at the Apple Store for $249.99.
The smart lock, designed by Behar, leverages a Bluetooth low energy-enabled locking mechanism and a mobile application to send virtual keys to anyone you choose to have access to your home. As the key holder arrives at the door, August auto-unlocks allowing you to enter into the home. The lock also has a security feature called EverLock, which senses when the door is closed behind you and automatically locks the door.
With Apple preparing to show off an updated lineup of iPads on Thursday, designer Martin Hajek has asked the question “What if the new iPad’s were to borrow the design language from the iPhone6/6+?” on his site. As he has done in the past, Hajek has mocked up some remarkable 3D renderings of how the theoretical Apple devices could appear.
Take a look:
Ahead of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch this September, Apple's iPhone 5c became the top selling smartphone in Britain. In fact, this handset was so popular that it even outsold the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 5s. And that is an impressive result, I must admit.
Apple on Tuesday released a candidate golden master version of OS X Yosemite and a fourth public beta of OS X Yosemite to developers and the users registered in the public beta-testing program. Tuesday’s releases come two weeks after the releases of previous Yosemite betas that contained numerous bug fixes, design tweaks and other improvements.
