Apple snatches the smartphone sales crown from Samsung — The Galaxy S6 cannot come quickly enough for Samsung. The longtime leader in smartphone sales lost its lead in Q4 2014 to - you guessed it - Apple, according to a new Gartner Research report. Granted, Apple's lead is not commanding. Apple sold 74.8 million smartphones, while Samsung sold 73 million units (a distant third was Motorola, a.k.a.

Samsung Pay takes on Apple Pay, but goes further — What, exactly, is holding back the growth of mobile, contactless payments? Nothing - they're happening. Apple told us last month that a huge percentage of mobile payments at some major retailers are happening on the NFC-enabled Apple Pay (on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus). However, there are very few smartphone-enabled mobile payments happening in total.

Of mice and Macs: Watch your technology transform over time — What we think of as 21st century technology has been with us for more years than many of us have been alive. Even cloud-based storage has its roots in the 1970s. Technology network Experts-Exchange thought it might be fun to see the progression of storage solutions - from 8-inch floppy discs to the cloud - in an animation.

Up-close look at LG Watch Urbane shows a sleek, elegant smartwatch — In advance of the impending Apple Watch launch in April, smart watch manufacturers are figuring out that a hefty portion of the wearable battle is about fashion. LG is replacing the buggy, ugly LG G Watch, which it released last year, with the LG Watch Urbane - which looks like something that could belong under the glass at Tiffany's.

Happy 60th birthday, Steve Jobs. Wish I could've met you. — I was in the same room or auditorium with Steve Jobs a handful of times. Sometimes we were many yards away, a couple of times just feet apart. But I never got to talk to or directly meet the man. The Apple founder and former CEO would've been 60 today.

Robot firm's founder steps down as Softbank takes more control — Japanese giant Softbank now owns 95% of the shares in French robotics company Aldebaran. The new shares come from Bruno Maisonnier, who will step down as CEO of the company he founded on March 4. Softbank took a 78.5% interest in Aldebaran in 2011.

There is only one cure for the Oscar hangover — Oscars, that was one long night. The Academy Awards dragged on for nearly four and those of us who stayed up late to watch Sean Penn take his time getting through the Best Picture winner are really feeling it today. But perhaps not as much as this golden guy.

Apple's Oscar ad pitches iPad as filmmaking tool — Back in 2010, Apple ran its very first commercial for the iPad during the 81st Annual Academy Awards. So it's only fitting that it has returned again and again to remind people of all they can do with every sleeker and more powerful tablet.

All the talk about the world's first 3D-printed selfie pancake is half-baked — When I heard about 3D-printed selfie pancakes, I thought we were one step closer to the dream of an all-selfie breakfast. The UK research, design and development house Kinneir Dufort announced the foodie breakthrough earlier this week, following in the steps of the selfie toaster.

Oliver Sacks is dying as he lived: Brilliantly — Oliver Sacks, one of our most brilliant clinical minds, revealed on Thursday that the cancer that he suffers from has spread to his liver and metastasized, and that he is now facing death. In a moving, clear-headed and surprisingly uplifting New York Times Op-Ed, he wrote about how he wants to "live out the months that remain to me."
