Domain Name Land Rush, Macintosh is 30, New iPhone With Larger Screen

I can’t believe this is my first post of the new year! The month is already over and it’s been quite busy. But that hasn’t stopped me from staying on top of the latest tech news and whatever else is happening in the world. So with that said and since it’s Friday, here’s a shotgun blast of 3 stories I found to be interesting today!

1. Major Domain Name Landrush

All of us in the tech world have known about the impending changes to the domain name landscape for almost two years now, but the reality is starting to come to light. We are literally just weeks away from being able to register new domains under the following TLDs: .photography, .estate, .ventures, .clothing, .technology and 20 more.

So instead of opening your business at, you can try to get

3. New iPhones May Have Larger Screens

iPhone 6 conceptIf these rumors prove to be true, Apple may be looking at releasing at least one new iPhone model that has a larger screen. This is much to the delight of those few detractors that have since switched to an Android device that are well known to have larger screens. Apple has been fighting the competition due to the vast selection of Android devices with screen sizes ranging from 4 inches upwards of 6+ inches!

It’s unclear exactly how big the new iPhone screen will be, but let’s just hope Apple doesn’t make them taller without increasing the width!
