This might not be important to every single person out there, but it does hold a great deal of significance for the mobile phone industry due to the sheer dominance of Qualcomm in the mobile space. You might not even know who the heck Qualcomm is, but just know that their work and technology is likely inside of just about every major mobile device in the world. Forbes has a story on the lawsuit that Apple has brought against Qualcomm.
Qualcomm’s stock tanked more than 12% on Monday. The San Diego-based chipmaker took a beating after Apple filed a lawsuit ...
The official unveiling of the next major Samsung Galaxy phone is but a few months away, and so for those interested, here is a nice little ongoing roundup of all the rumors so far, provided courtesy of PCWorld
With just a couple of months to go until its unveiling, rumors are flying about the latest Samsung flagship smartphone. Presumably to be called the Galaxy S8, it carries the extra pressure of being a sort of comeback kid—Samsung’s first big announcement after the exploding Galaxy Note7 debacle.
The details are pretty much in the rumor category at this ...
In many ways, nothing beats the freedom of an unlocked phone. They work with any AT&T or T-Mobile SIM card, even with no data plan. You can pop in a local, pay-as-you-go card overseas and never pay horrendous international roaming charges. And you don't have to deal with carrier-installed bloatware. If you're looking for an unlocked phone, look no further than our top-rated choices here. But first, consider why you may want to go the unlocked route in the first place.

The purpose of this post is to bring a little attention to something pretty extraordinary in ways that Whatsapp's billion+ users may not (definitely do not) fully understand. End-to-End Encryption is a very big deal for a number of reasons. It means that any and all communications between you and the person you're communicating with is truly private. But that doesn't really mean anything if it isn't explained further. Private from who exactly? From everyone with the exception of yourself and the person you are communicating with.

This is literally the stuff that nightmares are made of. This is very, very bad news, and is something that everybody should read up on. This is unchecked power in a way that should scare anybody with an ounce of common sense, or do we all think that this type of power is a good thing for the FBI to have with the new incoming President Elect Donald Trump? As someone who personally has more than just a little bit of experience with the subject in question, and who has a pretty good idea of the capabilities at the FBI's disposal, you would be making a monumental mistake in ...
Upgraded your iPhone to iOS 10? Your personal call logs may be easily snooped into and accessed without your knowledge by law enforcement officials, or just people you may not exactly want to have this kind of access to who you have been calling, and when. Does it seem like it's always one steps forward, three steps back with iPhones as of late? Maybe I'm being too critical.
Wire released an update for its secure communications app that allows people to choose between two settings: having their call history sent to iCloud, where law enforcement officials could use ...
Samsung ends production after issuing worldwide recall
Samsung has announced it's ending production of the Galaxy Note 7 around the world, pulling the plug on the phone after a months-long controversy over its defective, dangerous batteries.

The newest version of the android mobile phone operating system is here, and it's bringing with it a range of very exciting features. Some will be more obvious, others will be much less so and are more along the lines of quiet, under the hood type changes. That is no reason, however, to immediately write those less visual features off. One of the more important additions to this version of android is Google's ...
Best Buy currently has a pretty awesome deal where you can get an Xbox One (not the newer Xbox One S model - this is the original version of the console) and a 50 inch Sharp Smart TV for just $500. The reason this deal is happening is because the new Xbox One S model is going to become the defacto model of the Xbox One that you will find available for purchase going forward, and so this is an attempt to clear out older inventory, but we know there must be plenty of people who will still appreciate a great deal like this.
Act fast because it probably won't be there ...

As easily one of the biggest, and best, surprises of E3 2016, this is definitely one you need to see. For people who are familiar with these games, you aren't seeing things. They are totally re-inventing the series, but this time with a Norse mythology twist.
We here at Massive Vybz are also massive fans of videogames, so naturally this beautiful trailer caught our attention. And we can also appreciate the beautiful music.
