Is there a Facebook, Uber partnership looming?

Published by on Jul 25th, 2014, No Comments


If recent reports are to be believed then we might see a new, powerful partnership between Facebook and Uber in the near future.

According to a report by Re/code, Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg,  reportedly had a meeting with Uber CEO, Travis Kalanick about a possible partnership between the two mega companies that would reap a lot of benefits for both.

Apparently, the two discussed the possibility of integration the Uber service into Facebook’s Messenger app. This would then essentially mean that you would be able to order an Uber while you are talking to your friends on Messenger.

We already know that Facebook is very interested in turning their messenger app into something more than just (another) messaging/communication tool. And it seems that they are looking into e-commerce to expand the horizons of Messenger. (more…)

iphone 6 water

When it comes to media interest in the tech industry, almost no one garners as much attention as Apple these days. Therefore it comes as no surprise how many rumours and leaks are flooding the internet and how much time is dedicated to it. This is one of the more interesting leaks, though.

Unfortunately, we can’t really tell if this is a hoax or in any way legitimate – it is either a pre-production model of the iPhone 6 or a dummy mock-up. The interesting part of the leak is one of the dozens of photos in the source link, which shows the device under water. (more…)

Sony’s Xperia G leaked, mid-range phone coming soon

Published by on Feb 17th, 2014, No Comments


Sony is reportedly releasing a couple of mid-range phones at Mobile World Congress this month, along with a couple of low-end ones. But it seems that the Xperia G will be headlining that line-up of non-flagship devices.

A photo claiming to show portions of the Xperia G was tweeted out along with some specs: LTE, 8GB of storage, an 8-megapixel camera and a gig of RAM, plus a 4.8-inch screen. Those internals, if accurate would position the G as a mid-range handset with a slightly smaller size and similar design as the Xperia Z1S (which was only available in the US). (more…)
