    The media hype machine has laid its adoration upon HTC and Valve for coming up with a mind-blowing virtual reality experience. But are you ecstatic about it yet? Are you willing to shell out double the price of the Oculus Rift 40 days out from pre-orders? That's what one eBay seller is hoping you'll do. Prospective buyers have up until January 24 at around 5pm Eastern to take a chance at this singular HTC Vive "pre-order." Price tag? €1,099 or $1,204. For scale, financial firms' estimates have been circling around the $1,500 threshold. There's free shipping, but the buyer pays customs ...

    Update 2: We can now confirm that the screen is Gorilla Glass, not sapphire. @Pocketnow @greenpoint0 I don't read Chinese, so I spoke to the M9(s) engineering product manager. Confirmed it has a Gorilla Glass screen. — Jeff Gordon (@urbanstrata) November 19, 2015 The One M9(s) is still looks like an interesting One M9 refresh that could go line-to-line with the recently released One A9 on paper. Which do you think you would buy at this time, given the chance to do so? Update: We're getting word from HTC's Jeff Gordon that only the camera lens is made of sapphire, which would be the case ...

    Why do we have to call everything that isn't "smart," dumb (guilty as charged, by the way)? Smartphones? Dumbphones. Smartwatches? Dumbwatches. They are so stupid. All they're obsessed with is time, time, time. But with today's selection of smartwatches, there's quite the stratification of ... education levels that prospective buyers can choose from. But if you think that Android Wear, Pebble and even the likes of Martian and Runcible are overkill, get ready to longingly look at your dumbwatch. Chronos from Chronos Wearables is a 3mm-thick stainless steel disc that can latch onto the backs ...

    Yes, Sprint is the next lucky carrier to get the HTC One on pre-order as of today. If you're either on Sprint or considering moving towards their unlimited data, there's actually a deal for new customers that make this proposition a lot more enticing. Existing customers can get the HTC One for the usual $199 plus a two-year contract for the 32GB model, and no, there's no 64GB model in Sprint sadly. Now, if you're a new customer, there's a $100 discount on the HTC One with their new "bring your number" deal. You end-up paying only $99 for the handset, after you sign the contract of course. ...

    As expected, it was only a matter of time before BlackBerry made their Q2 promise with the BlackBerry Q10, and yes, we hate all these "Qs" as well. The company was really mysterious about the launch date of this device, and it could be arguable that they wanted to make sure the Z10 took off before shipping another handset to the market. As of today, pre-orders for the Q10 are available at Carphone Warehouse, and even though there are is not a specific date for shipping, the store confirms that it'll reach your doorstep on the end of April. For UK customers, this device will be sold to ...
