Samsung really want us to take Tizen seriously, but we have seen no sign that it would happen anytime soon. It is supposed to be Samsung’s answer to Android and iOS in the smartphone market, but all we have seen thus far is the OS being pushed onto their wearable devices.

With our education system in such disarray I sincerely hope tech savvy kids don’t get their hands on this application. A company called MicroLink has developed an app that can easily solve mathematics equation with the click of a button – it takes a photo of the equation and calculates the answer for you.

MicroLink’s newly unveiled PhotoMath for iOS and Windows Phone – with an Android version expected in early 2015 – uses your smartphone’s camera to scan math equations and not only solve them, but show the steps involved. (more…)
