    Skipping listener mail for two weeks in a row? We know, we know ... unconscionable. But we also know you'll forgive us in exchange for two things: a packed review schedule, and an awesome podcast guest. We're bringing you both of those as the week winds down to a close. In addition to the usual news segment narrated by ...

    Earlier this week we shared with you news of major OEMs signing up for the Smartphone Anti-Theft Voluntary Commitment, pledging their support for a system that will let users remotely lock devices, wipe data, and prevent reactivation of lost and stolen phones. It certainly sounds like a sensible enough idea, and one ...

    Yesterday we told you about a smartphone from Philips that didn't really care how thick it was, and while it measured-in at over 11 millimeters, it made great use of that space, squeezing in a giant 5300mAh battery. Based on the comments you left, a lot of you think Philips is on to the right idea here, and super-thin ...

    We started the week off with Sprint posting an update to its Nexus 5 software version page, advising users that a new release was incoming. While the initial build number of KTU48F it gave was confusing, that turned out to be a typo, later corrected to KTU84F. We had already associated recent builds like this with ...

    With the HTC One M8 now a reality, the stage is set for HTC to make its next comeback attempt. The company needs to turn its finances around and start showing a profit again, and while the One M8 is quite the attractive smartphone, the question remains if HTC can take all the critical acclaim the smartphone and received ...

    Google's Nexus series has brought us some fantastic values for Android hardware. The devices are generally quite top-shelf while coming in hundreds of dollars less than their competition. But recently, there's been a new surge of interest in smartphones that are even more affordable than the $300-$400 you might pay for ...

    "One device is a product of an Android juggernaut, a fourth-generation powerhouse from a take-no-prisoners Goliath that essentially owns the Google-powered smartphone space. The other is a last-ditch effort to save its creator from certain destruction, a product forged from that peculiar mixture of desperation and ...

    It's hard to argue that HTC's not very interested in smartphone imaging. Whether you believe that its UltraPixel system is a worthwhile trade-off, or if the new Duo Camera setup on the One M8 is more than just a gimmick – that's up to you. But regardless of the actual success these efforts may have found, the fact ...

    Oppo, unlike many other manufacturers, is taking this camera race to a new level, but not through hardware. Instead, Oppo is taking it to the competition via software, and in a way that, logically, doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. The Find 7 and Find 7a both come with 13-megapixel IMX214 CMOS sensors from Sony. In ...

    Printers from yesteryear used parallel ports. Modems used serials ports -- which were available in either 9- or 25-pin varieties. High-speed devices like scanners and external drives used to connect via any number of SCSI connections. A company I used to work for even made products that let you daisy-chain two together ...

    Samsung is expecting the Galaxy S 5 to outsell last year's GS4, and the expectations so far seem to match the events on the market, as this year's flagship is doing pretty well in its initial stages of availability. According to a Telegraph report, former iPhone users have a big merit in all this, as, apparently, over ...

    Last fall, Nokia released its first Windows 8 tablet, the Lumia 2520. After using Nokia phones for years, we were right curious to see what sort of tablet effort the company could put together, and we came away very pleased with what we saw. And if the 2520 wasn't impressive enough on its own, 2014 brought with it the ...
