The past few weeks have been quite busy when it comes to the alleged iPhone 6. We’ve seen countless number of leaks with the purported iPhone 6 dummies, in several color options.
It’s the weekend, but that’s not a reason for the rumor mill to stop working. Now, some images of the alleged iPhone 6 cases surfaced, showing both the 5.5-inch and 4.7-inch versions. The cases are accompanied by the Samsung Galaxy S5 as well as the iPhone 5S, which should give users a pretty good idea about the screen size of the purported iPhone 6.
Back in March, UK electronics retailer Dixons announced that it had entered into merger talks with one of the largest independent mobile phone supplies in the UK, the Carphone Warehouse.

If you use Tumblr and have been following the news, you know that Marissa Mayer has been Yahoo’s CEO for almost two years and in that time she has been busy improving many of Yahoo’s websites and apps. Also, Yahoo bought Tumblr a little over a year ago for $1.1 billion.
It probably seemed like a good idea at the time. But now, this purchase isn’t looking so good. Things are not all rosy over at Tumblr. According to a ComScore report in the Wall Street Journal, traffic to Tumblr has dropped from a peak of 49 million visitors in December to only 42 million in March.
Uh, yeah, that is a stunning loss of users in a very short time. If these numbers are accurate, this loss of 7 million visitors is a 15% drop. The thing is, there isn’t any obvious reason for this decline. Since Yahoo bought it, Yahoo hasn’t done much to change Tumblr, wanting to stay true to its promise to not ruin Tumblr. Yahoo has tried to monetize Tumblr and has been struggling, so this is really bad news for the company.
Sony’s PlayStation 4 is selling very well, but what exactly are the numbers? According to Sony who has announced their latest figures, it looks like they have now sold over 7 million consoles to date.
In November of 2013, Sony announced that they sold 1 million units in 24 hours. Then later in February we learned that Sony had sold 5.3 million units, and now, a few months later Sony announces that they have passed the 7 million units sold mark. That is most impressive. Sony mentions that the 7 million were sold to consumers, as opposed to retailers. So these are real numbers of consoles in people’s homes.
