This time, it’s designed to help the visually impaired via a micro camera attached to the contact lens.Overview of the Smart Contact Lens

In a bid to steal the limelight late last week as T-Mobile released the two company’s flagship Android phones on the same day, both HTC and Samsung sent precious gifts to the carrier’s chief exec — golden versions of the HTC One (M8) and the Samsung Galaxy S5.
Throughout launch day, T-Mobile CEO John Legere was (re)tweeting some promotional stuff about the Galaxy S5. Then, some time during the day, appeared Legere’s post about the 24-karat gold-plated HTC One (M8) — not just the mere Amber Gold variant. The CEO apparently got it as a gift from HTC USA and even posted a photo of it on Twitter.
Based on the picture Legere [...]

Browser bookmarks enable us to save our favorite Web links for access later. If you think of the Web as a supersized digital book, Web bookmarks work like real-life bookmarks by allowing us to mark a location on the Web that we intend to go back to later. Other browser programs aptly use the term “Favorites” for such collections of links.
If you use an iPhone and you’re planning to use an Android phone in addition to it, or if you intend to switch over entirely to Android, you will most likely also want to bring over your iPhone bookmarks to your Android phone. This is not an impossible task at all, considering that you can even transfer iPhone data [...]
