Awesome Android keyboard coming to iOS 8 to make your iPhone 6 seem even bigger
One of the most interesting features of iOS 8 – at least to some potential iPhone buyers – is support for third-party keyboards, which Apple is ready to introduce for the first time ever. Once iOS 8 is officially released following the iPhone 6 announcement next week, various third-party keyboards will likely be launched in the App Store, including one particular app that’s already popular on Android devices. Dubbed Minuum, the keyboard app offers Android users access to a predictive keyboard that also happens to take up a lot less space on the screen than any other keyboard app in order to free up more screen real estate for the content the user is actually interested in seeing while typing. Minuum has even come

You HAVE to see this: Drone captures amazing bird's-eye view video of Apple's new spaceship campus
We’ve all seen photos of the new spaceship-like headquarters Apple is building in Cupertino, California right now, but none of us have seen it quite like this. YouTube user “jmcminn” last week posted a video he shot using a DJI Phantom 2 “drone” equipped with a GoPro Hero 3+ video camera. The video gives us the first bird’s-eye view of Apple’s Campus 2, which is currently under construction in Cupertino. The video is incredibly clear and it shows us exactly how unique and interesting (in other words, bizarre) Apple’s futuristic new spaceship campus is shaping up to be.

Would you pay $400 for an iWatch?
Given how not-so-well most smartwatches have sold so far, Apple would have to be crazy to charge $400 for the iWatch unless it brought something truly new to the table… right? Re/code’s sources say that Apple execs “have discussed charging around $400 for the company’s new wearable device” although that’s apparently just one of many price points under consideration for different device types. In fact, pricing for the iWatch is apparently still very much up in the air and Re/code’s sources still aren’t sure whether Apple will even unveil any pricing at all during its September 9th event when it will show off its first wearable computer alongside the iPhone 6.
