 I have bought and returned an iPhone 6 Plus 10 times, please send help

It’s entirely possible this could be classified as an actual mental illness. But there’s just something about the iPhone 6 Plus that draws me in about a week after I switch back to my iPhone 6. It goes something like this…

There’s nothing wrong with the iPhone 6. It’s the best smartphone not only in the world, but ever made. It’s gorgeous, it’s luxury-level premium, it’s the phone Apple wishes they could have made 7 years ago — it is completely perfect. Though, as someone who has always bought the best available iPhone, it kind of hurts that there’s one a bit better. Better is a relative term, obviously, but the screen on the iPhone 6 Plus is just perfection with its higher resolution display, and it’s entirely noticeable to me. There’s also optical image stabilization in the camera, though that’s not the biggest deal as the regular iPhone’s camera is a joy. You also get a bigger battery with the iPhone 6 Plus.

 Here’s what happens to your iPhone after it gets stolen

The world of contraband electronics probably isn’t one that you’re familiar with, but if you read about smartphones on a regular basis, you’re bound to come across stories of black markets all around the world selling devices for hundreds of dollars more than they’re worth. This is one of the most interesting we’ve ever read.

Opinion: 5 reasons why the Apple Watch will fail

fail apple watch 470 75 Opinion: 5 reasons why the Apple Watch will fail

Earlier this week I listed five reasons why the Apple Watch will succeed, and now I’m back to look at the glass half-empty. The device is sure to sell like gangbusters out of the gate, but to achieve long-term success, Apple needs to find solutions to the following problems.

1. It lacks a defining must-have feature

The iPod promised a thousand songs in your pocket; the iPad packed the most popular functions of a PC into a portable package; and the iPhone brought smartphones out of the BlackBerry age. Apple’s biggest products have been disruptive and transformative – but can we say the same about the Apple Watch? It does a lot of things, but nothing that can’t already be done on another device. Apple Watch seems to hold a slight advantage in tracking health and fitness data, but the point is there’s no single feature that marketers can use to define the product as unique or necessary.

T-Mobile Throws In The Towel, Agrees To $90M ‘Cramming’ Settlement With FTC

AT&T agreed to settle with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to the tune of $ 105 million in early October for its part in a “cramming” scheme that bilked customers out of millions of dollars. Cramming refers to any unauthorized charges on a customer’s cell phone bill, and typically come in the form of unsolicited text messages.

Today is T-Mobile’s turn, as it has agreed to a settlement with the FTC and will pay at least $ 90 million. That sum will be compromised mostly of consumer refunds, but $ 18 million will go towards fines and penalties owed to all 50 states and $ 4.5 million will go directly into the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) pockets.
