by: Joe HindySeptember 12, 2012
Mark Zuckerberg has openly admitted that the current Facebook app is a giant failure right along with HTML5.

STMicroelectronics buys out bTendo, plans to jumpstart the Android projector phones revolution

by: AdrianAugust 7, 2012

Although Samsung has finally managed to get the Galaxy Beam out in several markets worldwide after having some mysterious production issues, the Android projector-phones revolution which we predicted more than a year ago hasn’t quite started.

The initial level of interest surrounding the Beam, the first commercial Android phone with a built-in pico-projector, hasn’t been very encouraging for the nascent niche, which might have quashed the enthusiasm of some tech lovers.

We, however, never stopped hoping for some rapid evolution in the area, and it seems that our hopes were not in vain. STMicroelectronics, a Swiss-based multinational electronics manufacturer, [...]

Want an Android-powered microwave oven? Here’s MAID!

by: AdrianAugust 7, 2012

Android has surely gone a long way since its 2007 inception, now powering more smartphones and tablets than ever, but the mobile OS’ expansion might well go beyond what anyone over at Google imagined a few years back.

It might not come as a surprise to many when hearing that Android-powered TVs were in pre-production, but we have to admit we never thought we would see the day when household appliances will be powered by Google’s operating system.

Well, as hard as it might be to picture, a little Indian company called SectorQube has unveiled an Android-powered microwave oven, going by the name of MAID. Technical details about the pioneering device are still a bit [...]

Android smartphone set for space launch with STRaND-1

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 6, 2012

Android is going to space. Smartphones have previously been part of NASA shuttle missions as productivity tools and for experimentation. This time, however, an Android smartphone will, itself, be the core of the satellite.

With the STRaND-1 project, British company Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd. hopes to launch a smartphone satellite into orbit. Given smartphones’ computing and data capabilities, engineers say they can easily be turned into space-bound data-gathering tools. “Apart from solar panels, this thing pretty much is a satellite,” says engineer Chris Bridges, who says smartphones have almost everything needed, including cameras, [...]

Android meets Ubuntu, makes a smashing debut

by: nathanAugust 6, 2012

Once upon a time, Linux was a small experiment running in the backrooms of NOC (Network Operations Centers) and MIT/Berkeley labs. Then came the Internet and the home computing craze and the advent of the OS for the consumer side. If Windows and macOS were the two mainstream choices you were thinking of, you’d be right. However, Canonical has changed that over the last 5 years with their OS, Ubuntu.

Well known in the home computing hobbyist circles, Ubuntu strives to meet demands with each release, by being the “Windows” of the Linux world. All of the things you love about Windows such as ease of install, hardware detection, easily navigated [...]

Bloomberg: Facebook and HTC working together on a new smartphone, to debut in mid-2013

by: AdrianJuly 26, 2012

We’ve been hearing rumors about Facebook’s supposed grand mobile plans for quite some time, but until now, they had but a whiff of credibility. The last one in particular, coming from the New York Times, sounded extremely far-fetched, stating that Facebook was considering building a smartphone from scratch, both in terms of hardware and software.

A new report seems to set the record straight about Facebook’s bold, but sane plans of getting in the smartphone business. According to Bloomberg, Mark Zuckerberg’s company is currently working on a phone with deep integration of Facebook features, but they have sought help from their old partners at HTC.

Report: First Samsung flexible displays to enter production this quarter without actually being flexible

by: AdrianJuly 22, 2012

Although they always kind of seemed like a very distant technology to actually become reality, flexible displays are, by all means and purposes, inching ever closer to their release. The rumors and reports about Samsung’s Youm foldable screens have piled up over the last few months, and another pretty trustworthy source now tells us that these panels could enter production as soon as this quarter.

Yep, you heard it right, this quarter, as in by the end of September, which is pretty crazy, considering that most of us thought that the technology had at least one more year before being ready for the wide public. However, there is a pretty [...]
