    At this point, with so many IFA 2014 product launches out of the way, it's starting to become very clear which devices we just aren't going to see announced. Yes, rumors did an excellent job this year at predicting what we'd see debut, but not every thread has led somewhere fruitful. In the days leading up to the expo, we heard about HTC's rumored smartwatch plans, with the company supposedly working on a pair of models that would arrive this month. So why hasn't there been a peep about these at IFA? According to a new source, it's because HTC has ended up getting cold feet, and has ...

Just like we did on episode 076, we're devoting an entire podcast to your missives. We'll hear from people concerned about dual-SIM stigma, people worried about the future of Apple, and people writing to remind us that the automated home isn't as ...

    Last week, we saw Qualcomm take off its SoC-maker hat for a moment and try on the role of accessory manufacturer, announcing the coming availability of its Toq smartwatch. While the $350 Toq is certainly more expensive than almost all of its smartwatch competition, it offers something the others don't: a display using advanced interferometric tech to form its image, letting it save enough power to make always-on operation a reality. We were told to expect the watch to go up for sale in one more week, on December 2, but it looks like Qualcomm couldn't help but let things loose a little ...
