m7Come 4th of September, we expect Huawei to take the wraps of a new phone. According to the invite the company sent, they certainly have something planned for that day and there is a good chance that what they are unveiling could be the Huawei Ascend Mate 7. Now we have seen several leaked photos in the past, but thanks to new leaks, we get to look at the rear of the phone and its front.

One of the features of the upcoming Ascend Mate 7 is its thin bezels, which as you can see in the image above are indeed pretty darn thin! This gives the illusion that the phone’s display is really larger than what it is, although with a whopping 6.1-inch display, we doubt anyone would think that it is a small phone.

nuclear smithPolice and video games, where have we heard that before? Well it looks like game developer Henry Smith could have had a close encounter with the police, except that in his case it would seem that the police exercised a bit of discretion instead of barging into his home and kicking down his door.

What happened is that as a developer, Smith drew plans for a game called Global Thermonuclear War which basically uses Google Maps to simulate what a nuclear war could look like between nations. On a whiteboard in his home, Smith had hand drawn a crude sketch of the word along with some lines to simulate nuclear missiles being fired from one country to another.

Sony mentions Xperia Z3 Tablet CompactSo we have been hearing rumors that Sony could be getting ready to launch the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, and recently it seems that Sony could have accidentally confirmed the existence of the tablet. This was revealed on the specs page of the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet as you can see in the screenshot above snapped by the folks at gizmobolt.

The page has since been edited and the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact name has been replaced with the Xperia Z2 Tablet. Now we’re sure some of you guys are probably thinking that it could be a typo, and while that could be a possibility, that would make more sense if the tablet was the Xperia Z3 Tablet, as opposed to the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact which has an added word.

gear circleIt seems that Samsung was pretty busy yesterday because not only did they officially unveiled a new smartwatch in the form of the Samsung Gear S, but they also took the wraps off a new pair of headphones that they have dubbed the Samsung Gear Circle. While the headphones themselves might look pretty normal, it does come with a nifty feature that some of you guys might appreciate.

Thanks to a built-in magnetic clasp, the headphones can be joined together at the edges and be worn as a necklace around your neck. We suppose on one hand you could always try and accessorize your outfit with it, but we reckon it’s more for convenience where instead of stuffing the headphones in your pocket or bag, or have them dangling, clasping them around your neck seems like a much neater solution.

iphone 6 sim 640x271When it comes to color options for the iPhone, Apple finally introduced a new color with the iPhone 5s with the gold finish, which was surprisingly not as gaudy as we had initially imagined and proved to be quite a hit amongst certain groups of customers.

Well for those who are hoping that Apple doesn’t get too colorful with their iPhones, you can breathe a sigh of relief because thanks to newly leaked photos, it looks like Apple will be keeping the same colors as the iPhone 5s, which is silver, gray, and gold. This is thanks to the leaked photos which shows off the alleged SIM trays belonging to the iPhone 6. Read full post →Leaked iPhone 6 SIM Trays “Confirm” Silver, Gray, Gold Color Options

Earlier this month it was revealed that 2K Games would finally be bringing the BioShock universe to iOS devices. Well the good news for BioShock fans who are looking to relive their BioShock moments on their iPhone or iPad is that the game has been officially released and is available for download via the iTunes App Store.

Unfortunately if you were hoping that the game would be priced like a mobile game, think again. The developers have slapped a somewhat hefty (hefty as far as mobile games are concerned) price tag of $14.99 on it. Also due to the somewhat graphically intensive nature of the game, it will not be compatible on older devices like the iPhone 4S or below, third-gen iPad or below, first-generation iPad mini and the iPod touch.

nokia z launcher androidWhile Microsoft might have officially put an end to Nokia’s Android plans, the other Nokia continues to support Android in their way own – in the form of the Z Launcher. For those who are unfamiliar with the Z Launcher, it’s basically a launcher that Nokia designed for Android devices.

There are plenty of launchers already available in the market today but we guess by throwing Nokia’s name behind the Z Launcher, it has given it a bit of clout. That being said, Nokia has been busy making improvements to the Z Launcher and in the latest update, it should bring about several changes and improvements that might be welcomed by its users.

StatCounter Windows 8 market share 640x339It seems like a coincidence but with every other version of Windows Microsoft has released, it has proven to be a bigger hit than its successor. For example Windows XP was a hit, but Windows Vista was not. Windows 7 was a hit and Windows 8 is still struggling to be adopted. In fact it seems that some OEMs claim that Windows 7 makes it easier to sell products compared to Windows 8.

That being said, adoption of Windows 8 is slowly on the rise. According to recent numbers released by StatCounter, they have revealed that Windows 8’s worldwide desktop market share has finally managed to surpass that of Windows XP. The combination of Windows 8 at 7.35% and Windows 8.1 at 8.2% have allowed the OS to surpass Windows XP which is sitting at 14.31%.
