by: Carl ParkerMarch 26, 2012

Fresh from the Mobile World Congress 2012, it seems like both Samsung and Nokia will be putting out interesting phones this year.

The Galaxy Beam is Samsung’s latest attempt at manufacturing a projector-equipped phone. Nokia seems to be getting competitive with their Nokia Pureview and this device’s crowning glory is its phone camera that packs more megapixels than actual cameras.

Design and Display

The Galaxy Beam has dimensions of 124 x 64.2 x 12.5 mm and a weight of 145 grams. It is equipped with [...]

by: Carl ParkerMarch 23, 2012

Don’t you just hate being in the middle of something and getting interrupted? You can be in the zone, playing your favorite game or watching a movie, when suddenly you get the notification that you’ve got a new message.

And, if it’s a message you’ve been waiting for, you’ll need to leave whatever app you’ve currently got open, to read the message and reply to it through your inbox. From there, it’s back to the app you had been on until the next message arrives. Rinse, repeat.

Thankfully, there’s SMS Popup, making the problem of interruption non-existent. SMS Popup allows you to quickly read and reply to SMS [...]

Quick review: Angry Birds Space, the best in the series

by: SamMarch 22, 2012

The Angry Birds are back, and so are their enemies, the green pigs! The birds have taken flight into outer space, but that still isn’t enough to avoid the pigs, who use spaceships to steal the Angry Bird’s eggs. You know the drill by now. It’s time to deal some payback, but with astrophysics!

I’ve been playing Angry Birds Space for about an hour now, and I am thoroughly impressed. In fact I think this is the best version of Angry Birds that Rovio has ever released.

What’s New?

As you’ll soon see if you give ABS a try, the physics of the game have been entirely done over. There are two types of “space”, best [...]
