Leaked documents show ISIS is set to launch on October 22nd

by: ŠtefanOctober 10, 2012
Phones have been shipping with NFC (near field communication) support for several years now, but the one use case that we've all been waiting for, paying for things via a simple tap, has yet to take the market by storm.

Android Authority On Air – Episode 29 – iPhone5 Announced – Apple still playing catch up

by: Derek RossSeptember 15, 2012

This week on Android Authority On Air we came to the realization that following the recent Apple iPhone 5 announcement, this very well could be our last Android based show. The pre-orders are in, we’re moving to iOS! …And then we woke up from that nightmare and realized it was a horrible, horrible lie. On a serious note, we did discussed the latest smartphone from Apple. It’s truly sad to see how far the device has fallen behind. Sorry Sprint and Verizon users, you won’t be able to talk and use data at the same time, something that Android phones on those networks can do with ease.

by: Costea LestocSeptember 14, 2012
Institutions such as Barclaycard US, Green Dot and Silicon Valley Bank have already implemented Google Wallet for their customers. It is expected for many others to follow suit.
