Although we here at Android Authority are first and foremost preoccupied with bringing you all the news that matter regarding Android devices, we like to keep an open mind and have a perspective... on the technology world as a whole. That’s why we’re also interested in what Apple will be coming up with in the near future to face the growing competition and great progress of Android.

Android Transporter

Those of you who’ve been following up with our website for more than a little while might remember a little piece we did a month back on Android Transporter, a software project based on Wi-Fi... Display technology that makes wireless display between two Android devices a piece of cake.

Growing plants can be soothing for anyone, but not everybody knows how to take care of a plant, when to water it, what temperature to keep it on, and so forth. If you don’t want to research... each and every kind of tomato, cactus, or orchid out there, some very industrious people in Switzerland are willing to give you a helping hand.

The Koubachi WiFi Plant Sensor provides a new and...

Google Glasses

We’ve been hearing about Google’s Project Glass and how it could turn the science-fiction of yesterday into the reality of tomorrow for a while now. But until a few weeks ago, very few of... us seriously thought that we would see the “augmented reality head-mounted display” released commercially in the close future.

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.

Men and women in the Navy have to make a lot of sacrifices while out at sea, being cut out from land, their families and friends for months in a row. However, US sailors might enjoy a bit of... extra comfort while on service soon, as plans of fitting Navy ships with LTE-like networks surfaced last week.

While US Navy ships are already connected to the Internet in one way or another, t...

Although Facebook’s IPO (Initial Public Offering) was called by financial experts a failure, Mark Zuckerberg’s monster company still has its sights set very high. With stocks falling and... more than $17 billion lost off an initial $104 billion valuation, the social networking service might be looking to expand way off its comfort zone and into smartphone hardware manufacturing.

Whether we like it or not, the time of the “petite” phones with touchscreens between 3.5 and 4 inches has passed and we are now heading towards the domination of “super-phones”... and “phablets”. It’s practically impossible to find a high-end Android smartphone released during the last few months (or due for release soon) that has a display smaller than a 4-inch and the biggest hits...

We’ve all come to take for granted how easy it is to take a photo or video at any time, thanks to our smartphones having cameras. While it’s amazing that we have this ability, one... thing that has been sacrificed for the most part is the actual photo and video quality. In most cases, manufacturers have settled to pumping up the sensor size, neglecting other aspects, such as better...
