    We may be approaching a turning point in mobile technology, which in many ways is actually coming full circle. The time was that you had "accessories" like a camera, a PDA, a phone, a laptop, a watch, and a host of other devices on you that all performed a specific function. The best part was, all of those devices ...

For a limited time, i.e. until Monday, May 30, at 11:59 pm PT, the HTC 10 on the OEM’s US ...

    We’re a year into a tech transition. Cables and ports are a big deal. Regardless if you use Android, Windows, or iOS on your phone, you likely have some gadget or accessory with a Micro USB port. Micro USB has become a phenomenally well represented standard, but to move into a new era of devices and services, even a ...

    Pebble does not use ePaper displays. It achieves a certain likeness to ePaper displays through memory-in-pixel LCDs on its smartwatches, both old and new, but it's not an ePaper display like the one the YotaPhone uses. But unless it can improve on that technology further, perhaps manufacturers should consider something ...

    What's said to be billions of dollars will not go to Oracle because of today's federal jury ruling. All ten members of the panel agreed that Google's appropriation of 37 Java APIs in its development of Android fell under the "fair use" clause of copyright law. Shortly after the verdict, Google stated that: Today's ...

    Google Play Music is probably not the world’s most popular online audio streaming service, and somehow, it doesn’t feel like a solid contender for second or third place either. But when it comes to bundle deals and free trials of its premium All Access subscription tier, the Android, iOS and Windows-compatible app ...

    No matter how a bunch of lazy, complacent, greedy, user satisfaction-ignoring device manufacturers and wireless carriers will try to spin the Android numbers tale to make it seem like fragmentation isn’t such a big deal anymore, the cold, hard facts suggest otherwise. Marshmallow is growing at a slower pace than ...

    Here’s a fun fact for you. Up until today, I didn’t know what a “Twitter canoe” is. I’ve been on Twitter since before 2009, so I may not be “old school” by some standards, and I didn’t even set my computer on fire in protest when Twitter wanted to break chronological order of tweets. So maybe I’m just ...

    It’s rarely a good idea to debut controversial, experimental technology such as a new form of biometric authentication on a flagship consumer product like the upcoming Galaxy Note 6, so let’s not act surprised that Samsung is essentially test-driving iris recognition on a much smaller scale with the Galaxy Tab Iris. ...

    When the Internet was coming into its own back in the '90's, we were migrating from "classic" uses (Archie, Finger, Ping, Usenet, FTP, Email, web browsing, etc.), to a more "modern" set. Chances are that you've heard of a couple of those, whereas the others have all but faded out of commonality. Today web technologies ...

    Talking about making Windows 10 mobile — with a lower-case "m". Instead of NUCs or stick computers, why not have a fully operable interface open up right from your thoroughly stuffed pocket? That's what the GOLE1 looks to provide. The Indiegogo project — put up by ARMdevices.net from Shenzhen — touts the device as ...

    The Nexus Player is done. It's been done at many retailers for the past few months, but it's especially done now as the Google Store has stopped selling it. In fact, the product page doesn't exist anymore — the link that would take you there redirects to the Google Store's TV & Audio section. Ironically, the Nexus ...
