    It's not a secret that a majority of Google's earnings comes from advertising, but there is a small subset of income that comes from the company's other (more device-related ventures), such as the Play Store and Nexus device program.

We also know to expect a very thin design, a ...

    How does a company like Yahoo stay relevant in a world where we've long moved past the days of manually indexed websites, a world where out-Googling Google at pure search seems like a gargantuan task?

    Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are here, and have been for a couple weeks now.

    The OPPO R5 from last year was a neat little phone (also one of the thinnest on the market), but the sequel, the OPPO R7 is expected to be even thinner. That's what all the leaks suggest, as well as a bezel-less aspect (to clarify: a leak sheds light on this, as there are bezels, but OPPO is doing a neat hocus pocus ...
