Over the years, I've taken some heat for saying that the iPhone jumped the shark years ago or predicting that the iPhone 6 will be more run of the mill than a runaway hit. So far, I've yet to see anything on the horizon that will prompt me to eat those words someday soon, except maybe if this crazy holographic iPhone 6 concept miraculously came to market.
Put together by yet another Italian design outfit -- this time the Set Solution -- the concept imagines a new iPhone with holographic projectors on the side that allow the user to interact with projected screens alongside the physical display. Also demonstrated is how a vertically projected hologram might be used for applications like 3D gaming.
Apple on Monday released an update to its iOS 7 mobile operating system, dubbed ios 7.1.

SoftBank CEO and Sprint chairman Masayoshi Son will speak to policymakers on Tuesday and argue that if wireless carriers grow in size and invest in faster, more reliable data service, competition in the home broadband market would intensify, Bloomberg reported on Monday, citing people who claim to have knowledge of Son's plans.
This World Wide Web you're looking at right now wasn't always something most people considered worth a second glance -- let alone
hours days weeks years of nonstop staring. In fact, even some of the big info-nerds of the day ignored or dismissed it early on.
One of the earliest public demonstrations of the Web came back in 1991, when a man named Tim Berners-Lee sat at a table with a computer in a Texas hotel conference room, willing to give anyone with a few minutes to spare a personal introduction to his invention -- a concept and a structure that would soon spark a worldwide information revolution.
Every person in the room that day likely came to depend on this invention by the close of the 1990s, if not sooner. But when first confronted with the Web in that hotel, most simply said whatever the equivalent of "meh" was at the time, and went in search of a drink.
