Apple's iPhone business soars while the iPad languishes — Apple just dropped its 4th quarter earnings a few moments ago, revealing that the folks in Cupertino raked in $42.1 billion in revenue and $8.5 billion in pure profit - more than enough to take care what it might owe in back taxes.

Apple's iOS 8.1 update is waiting for you to download it — Well, it's Monday, and that can only mean one thing: Apple's iOS 8.1 update has finally gone live for your installing pleasure. To recap, the new software - which is debuting just over a month since iOS 8 first hit - brings back once-trashed favorites like the Camera Roll, and strengthens the connection between your iPhone and Yosemite-powered Mac with features like SMS handoff and the uber-impressive Instant Hotspot.

Amazon Kindle Voyage review: The best e-reader is also the priciest — When Amazon introduced an updated version of its flagship Kindle Paperwhite last year, it took the easy way out -- after all, tweaked internals, improved software and slightly better lighting do not a thrilling e-reader make. The 2013 Paperwhite wasn't bad by any stretch, just a bit boring.

Apple officially outs the iPad mini 3, pre-orders start tomorrow — You knew it was coming; now it's here. Apple just pulled back the curtain on the iPad Mini 3 at its live media event in Cupertino, and so far it's pretty much what we expected -- a modestly updated tablet with a slimmer physique.

You can download OS X Yosemite for free starting today

Google reveals the $649 Nexus 6, pre-orders begin on October 29th — Forget the pomp and circumstance that comes with a formal launch event -- Google just outed the new Nexus 6 on its official Android blog, and it's just about everything the rumor mill said the Motorola-made device would be.

Sharp AQUOS Crystal review: mid-range brains meet striking looks — Pop quiz, hotshot: When's the last time you saw a Sharp phone in the United States? The Sharp FX from years back? Maybe the FX Plus? If you're anything like me, your mind will hearken back to chunky clamshell classics like this one.

Hailo bows out of North America while its rivals duke it out — When you think of hailing cars from your smartphone, you probably envision Uber's fleet of black cars or Lyft's festive pink mustaches. Competitors like mobile cab-hailing startup Hailo never reached critical mass outside Europe the same way its two biggest rivals did -- that's why it revealed today that it's bailing out of North America entirely.

Here's what to expect from Apple's October 16 event — Now that the dust from the launch of Apple's new iPhones has started to settle, it's time to wade into the fray one more time. It's been just about a year since the folks from Cupertino trotted out the iPad Air, and now it's going to show off its next-generation model -- along with a handful of other updated goodies -- at a big media event at its corporate headquarters on October 16.

Verizon's announcing its new Droid on October 28th — It's been leaked to hell and back lately, but no matter - Verizon's finally ready to pull back the curtain on its latest Droid smartphone at an event in New York on October 28.
