by: Nate SwannerAugust 19, 2013
The Google Now-esque cards have made their way to YouTube, and the slide-out menu has been redesigned. Interestingly enough, the first thing on the menu is “Uploads”, leading us to believe YouTube is concentrating on creation and uploads more than before.

Amazon refreshes their Silk browser, bringing a fresh interface and updated features

by: Nate SwannerAugust 15, 2013
In anticipation of their new lines of Kindle devices, Amazon has tweaked Silk to make it a bit more intuitive and easy to use. While much of the features are available on other browsers, Amazon’s choice to bring some to the forefront is interesting. In many ways, Silk has become a bit more like other browsers, with a redesigned bookmarks bar, and your most recent visited pages on the new tab page.

While not remarkably smaller, it’s probably just small enough to make most of us interested in a 5-inch device happy.

Verizon VoLTE coming in 2014, but don’t get too excited yet

by: Nate SwannerAugust 14, 2013
This leads to a few interesting questions, notably what will happen with data plan pricing. As Verizon transitions into a full LTE network, their legacy technology will be updated. Once this transition is complete, those traditional channels for making calls will no longer be viable, and we’ll be entirely reliant on data.
