How to create your own coiled iPhone charging cord

Apple's official iPhone and iPad charging cords are nothing special. Like any straight wires, they have a tendency to tangle in a bag and they don't look particularly neat laying across your desk or nightstand.

It's way too easy to fake a photo of a "new" iPhone

There have been a whole lot of supposedly leaked photos of the mythical 4.7-inch iPhone 6 lately -- or at least bits and pieces of it. A production mold pops up here and a front panel shows up there, and the Internet eats it up because, hey, it's photographic evidence, right? The already grainy...

The HTC One M8 is an Android phone made for iPhone lovers

Last week, I upgraded my Samsung Galaxy S4 to the new HTC One (M8), and I can confidently say that if Apple's iPhone was somehow wiped from the face of the earth tomorrow, the new HTC One would be the next best thing.
