The internet has been overloaded with both Xbox 720 and PS4 news in the past few weeks and an online retailer is now weighing in on the competition between the two systems.

The carrier has already launched the 16GB version and now customers will have the option to choose a variant with a more significant amount of internal memory.
Galaxy S3, and Galaxy Note 2 owners expressed their frustration with the lack of useful internal memory on the 16GB variants of those devices as only half of it can be used.

Apple's upcoming low-cost iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 will be a mid-end device, according to a new report.
J.P. Morgan analysts Gokul Hariharan and Mark Moskowitz recently spoke to AllThingsD about the low-cost model and stated that Apple will not use lower end components to build this new iPhone. Instead, Apple will take a different approach creating a mid-range device that is a bit cheaper than the regular iPhone.
The analysts stated that Apple's approach with this iPhone will be similer to its iPad Mini release as the company used older components that were top-of-the-line just one year prior to create a lower-cost device that could compete in that market. The iPad Mini also costs more than some of its fiercest competitors such as the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire HD and still manages to sell really well. more >>
