Just a small bit of information today for you Asus Transformer (TF101)¬†fans. If you like the AOKP ROM as much as I do and keep flashing every upgrade, don’t flash Build 39 or 40!¬†Whilst other devices work perfectly fine with these build versions, the Transformer suffers from bugs in both builds. Build 39 Issues This build was catostrophic and wouldn’t even boot. While it was endlessly cycling in a boot loop, I realized I should probably have googled to see if there were any major problems with the ROM. Needless to say there were bug reports everywhere. A little lesson…

It’s becoming more and more popular for devices to have a ‘kickstand’, either built in or on a case accessory. A kickstand is normally used to let you rest the phone at an angle on a flat service so you can Skype, GTalk, or watch YouTube videos without having to hold or prop up the phone with something else. Well, a Korean design company called “Knock of Neverland” have created a multi-purpose phone stand which can ‘duckify’ your phone. As you’ll see in the images, it serves as a keyring, headphone holder, and suction-cup phone stand. It’s absurd, weird, and…

Just over a week ago, Verizon started to let their customers pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S3. However, unlike their direct competitors, the folks at AT&T or Sprint (shipping the Galaxy S3 on June 21), Verizon disappointed a lot of eager customers when they announced that they will only begin selling Samsung’s hit device on July 9.¬†As if that was not bad enough, now Bid Red has gone back and changed the shipping date from July 9 to July 10. It’s only one day, so nothing to get into a fuss about, right? Well, after going through months of rumors and…

Anodizing is part of an electrochemical manufacturing process that gives a lot of modern tech its soft finish, durability, and rich colours. It allows metals like Titanium and Alyour gadgetuminium to not only receive a layer of protection, but also an impressive colour that is not painted, but rather dyed into the material and then sealed in. Though Apple were amongst the first manufacturers to use this process on a large scale to create the bodies of their products (e.g the iPod Nano and newer Macbook line). The method has been uptaken by other companies such as HTC who use…

The idea of controlling parts of your home with a smartphone has been around for many years now. There have been many successful products and DIY jobs, for instance you can run a bath from your phone, and this man got his garage to open anywhere in the country with his Android phone. The Kickstarter project Elphi is taking this smartphone-controlled-home idea a step further. They are saying rather than creating complex products with their own apps, why not create a simple piece of hardware which can be used with any appliance. The project funding is for a WiFi-cloud-based wall-socket…

Yesterday we did a terrible thing. We took a brand new Samsung Galaxy S3 and purposefully dropped it multiple times for you. It was awful to watch, but we know that our viewers get a strange enjoyment from cell phone obliteration. We also dropped a brand new iPhone 4S and filmed that too! Before we get to the real fun, let’s take a look at how the iPhone 4s matches up to the Galaxy S3.

In the spirit of the Olympic Games, Samsung has created the Samsung Hope Relay charity, which lets Samsung users contribute to good causes, and maintain their physical shape at the same time. How does it work? For every mile that you run with the associated app running on your device in your pocket, Samsung will donate ¬£1 to a good cause. How does it work? It’s exactly as you would expect, really. Once you have put your name and town into the app (and taken a goofy picture of yourself) you can start and stop your “runs”. Each time you…

For me, and probably for every tech user out there, there are two major gripes with smartphone batteries. First, they drain down to empty in no time; second, it can take hours to recharge them again. Well, Prieto,¬†a Colorado-based startup, claims that it has developed a technology that could solve my two gripes, and revolutionize the battery market in the process. Prieto’s objective is to manufacture and sell a new type of lithium-ion battery that lasts up to five times longer than standard batteries. Moreover, the technology supposedly allows for super-fast recharge times as well. According to GigaOm, the company,¬†which…
