Since the introduction of the latest MacBook Pro last year, Apple fans could only get Thunderbolt 3 cables from Belkin, not Apple.
What did not get chopped down with the initial sales blast at USB-C section of the Apple Store has just gotten chopped down. Hint: it is a 5K screen.

Big Force Touch trackpad. An OLED Retina Display. And a completely new interaction method that can do way more than a set of function keys ever could.
In case the Sprint-bound HTC Bolt didn't sound weird and random enough, it turns out its "global" name will be HTC 10 evo.
The upcoming HTC Bolt sure looks familiar (in a good way) in its first leaked render, unfortunately leaving out the traditional audio jack.
HTC launched its Thunderbolt smartphone on Verizon in 2011 as the first LTE-capable device on the network. Will the Bolt be anything or nothing like that?

HTC's Facebook page states that the company is still planning to finish ICS updates for all announced devices by the end of August.
HTC refutes last week's claims that the Desire HD ICS update has been canceled.
HTC’s been talking about which of its Androids would be seeing updates to Ice Cream Sandwich for some time now, so we’ve generally had a good idea for what to expect. We’ve already seen the company start delivering those updates to some of its lineup, leaving the question of just when it would get around to hitting the rest of them. To help with answers, the manufacturer has put together a convenient table, detailing just when it expects to make ICS available for those remaining devices.
It looks like the majority of phones that haven’t yet started [...]
The 2.11.605.19 update for the HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon was leaked almost one month ago, bringing new radios and fixes, but unfortunately no trace of Ice Cream Sandwich. Still, the phone will receive Android 4.0 sometime in the future!
Until then, the documents regarding the 2.11.605.19 refresh have been posted online which means that the roll-out process should start in a matter of weeks. According to the changelog, it brings improved data connectivity, improved device stability, improvements to the mail application as well as other fixes which you can see in the screenshot [...]
Someday, Verizon will release an update that will bring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to HTC’s Thunderbolt, the carrier’s first LTE-supporting smartphone. At least, the phone’s among those Verizon’s published on its official list of phones getting ICS, but for the moment, no one’s quite sure when that will be. It looks like the Thunderbolt will be getting at least one more maintenance update before making the jump to ICS, as revealed by the release of a newly-leaked RUU.
For the moment, there are no signs on Verizon’s end that this update, [...]
So far, news about which Android handsets will be making the journey to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and which will be left behind to stagnate has largely been coming from the manufacturers themselves. Some, like Motorola, have detailed support pages up outlining which models should be seeing updates, and when. Other are content to release snippets of their progress on the likes of Twitter and Facebook. Today, though, that news is coming from a carrier, with Verizon publishing a list of devices on its network that are slated to receive Ice Cream Sandwich.
Verizon calls this a [...]
A little earlier this month, HTC updated us all on its plans for bringing its stable of Androids up to Ice Cream Sandwich, committing to the first updates arriving for Sensation-series models sometime during March. Today the company had even more Android 4.0 news to share, especially concerning its phones available on Verizon.
We already knew that HTC was planning to bring Ice Cream Sandwich to the Rezound on Verizon, but considering that handset’s current hardware specs, that’s hardly surprising. Today the manufacturer adds to that list of Verizon phones that are [...]
Besides “don’t download apps from sketchy sources”, one of the big rules of keeping your Android device safe is “think carefully about approving app requests for system permissions”. That latter one can be tricky to encourage, since it requires the user to do a bit of critical thinking at the time of installation; does that Sudoku-solving app you downloaded really need the ability to send SMS messages? The idea is, though, that if you are smart about granting permissions, you can stop malicious apps from taking advantage of you. Sometimes it’s not [...]
“All HTC Android devices launched after September 2011 are unlockable“, said HTC in an official statement, adding all the phones in the above-mentioned category to the list on HTCdev.com.
Thankfully, HTC’s changes to the site also include the addition of two phones released prior to September 2011: the HTC Thunderbolt and the Incredible 2. If the hacks and tweaks you wanted to apply were stopped by the locked bootloader, you can now unlock your phones, given you understand that this voids your warranty. As far as Verizon is concerned, HTC either found a way [...]
