Published by on Apr 17th, 2014, No Comments

The Gear Fit and the Galaxy S5 are now available worldwide and with its release, Samsung wants to show you how you are supposed to use your new device.

The short 30 second spot commercial overs some real life scenarios such as rejecting a call without ever laying a finger on your phone as well as tracking your fitness data. Take a look at the video above.

moon

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has been orbiting the gas giant Saturn for some time and will stay for many more years. Its sole mission is to study the planet and the moons and rings around it. Now, though, for the first and perhaps the last time in human existence, we are seeing an actual moon form around the planet.

The birth of a moon is an extremely rare event. There’s a theory that Saturn used to have a much larger ring system, which led to formation of numerous natural satellites. (more…)

Amazon’s long-awaited smartphone is apparently right around the corner. This is the first time that all the rumours finally point to an actual device, though. These images are the first apparent leak of the phone.

I know what you are thinking: “Damn, that’s ugly!” And I would agree, but luckily there is an enclosure around the device that hide the true nature of the phone. That would imply that this leak was intentional to generate buzz ahead of the launch within the next couple of months. (more…)

Yesterday was day one of the Project Ara developers conference.

Imagine having a smartphone with modules that can all be swopped and replaced, allowing you to upgrade certain parts of your phone at will. You would be able to concentrate on what you find important in your device. If you like photography, install a better camera module; if you prefer more storage for all your music and apps you can rather include that. The concept is called Phonebloks.

This concept brought on Project Ara, which Google took control of after buying Motorola. Google are completely transparent with this idea, and has started with a developer’s conference to get as many people on board as early as possible. Check out their progress below: (more…)

Back in January we came across some news that Apple is about to take on PayPal with their own payment system. Now it seems the company will have even more competition from another tech giant – Facebook. The social network is “only weeks away” from receiving the necessary approval in Ireland to operate its own e-money service.

This means that, in Europe at least, Facebook could become an accredited financial institution. It could then of course store and send money for users all over the continent, of which they already have millions of course. (more…)
