What is interesting about this particular glich is that it affects primarily the iPhones with 128GB of storage on board and those that have their storage full or nearly full.
According to the latest report from Digitimes, both Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) are currently struggling to get the rights to manufacture the next-generation Apple A9 chip, which will reportedly be used to power company's iPhones and iPads next year.

In case you don't know, back in September, the guys from Cupertino promised that the smartwatch will become available "early next year". Today's release timing is more specific and this is good for potential customers.

According to a number of complaints that can be found on Apple's Support Communities forum, a number of OS X Yosemite users have encountered some issues with Wi-Fi connectivity. The Wi-Fi connections are extremely slow or, in some cases, they disconnect within few minutes of work.

Nevertheless, I believe the guys from Cupertino should pay attention to the complaints and fix the bug inside of the recently-released OS X Yosemite as soon as possible.

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.
