Leaker extraordinaire @evleaks has cultivated quite the bogeyman reputation of late in regards to mobile device manufacturers desperately trying to keep a lid on inside information relating to unannounced gear.
Apparently, Pornhub is giving Coolio some models for his video “Take It To The Hub,” in exchange for an exclusive premiere of Coolio’s new tracks. Because isn’t that what you really want to see when you come to Pornhub? Coolio? I’ll take your suspicious silence as a yes!
When wearable tech is a topic of discussion, it usually covers such things as smartwatches, Google Glass, fitness trackers, and such. Those devices are more common and of a wider variety, of course. When it comes to gadgets and wearables, it’s easy to overlook that everyday bag or backpack. The bag that carries all your stuff says as much about you as any other type of fashion accessory.
Between the closing of Nokia’s acquisition, its biggest employee shake-up ever and the recent surprising Surface Pro 3 introduction, you can definitely say it’s been an eventful past few months in Microsoft’s Redmond camp.
For as long as we can remember, speculation in regards to Samsung preparing a shift away from plastic and towards metal-constructed high-end smartphones has constantly emerged from various sources, only to be suppressed sooner or later by, well, reality.
It’s sad that perhaps Nokia’s most highly anticipated release of 2014 targets the low-end branch of the smartphone market, but even with Microsoft completely behind the erstwhile mobile giant, the Lumia makers can’t abandon the entry-level boat for bolder high-end goals.
Are we that lazy? It seems smartphone-owners would rather not take the five seconds it requires to enter a PIN to unlock their phones. So, Motorola’s solution? Temporary tattoos! And they’re not even cute; they look like ringworm mixed with a cigarette burn. It’s like the ultimate mood-killer, but it’s totally worth it if you can unlock your phone in one second, right? WRONG! Admittedly, I was all on board with the fingerprint sensors from companies such as Apple and Samsung, but I was fine with the technology ending there.
Great news, AT&T customers swimming against the tide to snub the iOS/Android duopoly, your stubbornness and patience may pay off really soon, as the freshest version of Windows Phone is in advanced stages of testing and due out “as early as this week”.
If you’ve ever tried running or working out with a set of cabled headphones, you likely know the feeling of inconvenience they present. If the cords aren’t getting in the way somehow, they’re banging around and generating line noise. When you’re done, they need to get wrapped up without tangling. Depending on the workout intensity, you might need to wipe sweat and/or grime off too.
Perhaps trying to intimidate Google and show the search giant there’s life beyond Android, Samsung has unveiled Tizen-running successors for the Jelly Bean-based Galaxy Gear back at MWC. Even more intimidating, Sammy’s first-gen smartwatch has been treated to its own software update to Tizen starting May, the option to wipe out Android finally reaching the States today.
We’ve been warned, and teased, and warned again. At long last, Nvidia’s Shield Tablet has gone official, unfortunately a couple of days too late to surprise in any way. But regardless of the mystery being shattered to pieces prematurely, you have to admit the chip maker’s sophomore gaming device effort improves last year’s hesitant rookie stab at the tricky market by leaps and bounds.
Amazon’s already traditional lightning deals continue with a wicked one-day-only Kindle Fire HDX 7 sale, which sees the somewhat overlooked LTE-enabled tablet drop to a starting price of $229. That’s 100 bucks off the 16 GB model’s recommended retail value, and includes special offers (read ads and sponsored screensavers).
