Last year it was rumored that Samsung’s Mobile division was not only cooking up a new Exynos processor for the Galaxy S5 but it was also working on a graphics processor for those chips in-house. The company’s new Exynos SoC was launched but it didn’t come with Samsung’s own GPU. Today the rumor about in-house GPU development has resurfaced. Apparently the company has continued working on those graphics processors and has even been able to bring over engineers from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA and other companies to aid development.

Some might find it really hard to believe that less than a decade ago there was no widespread penetration of the smartphone. Most people relied upon their trusty flip phones which at one time were all the range. Since the advent of touchscreen based smartphones the market has shifted from old form factors to simpler shapes with only a few buttons. There might still be people out there who would want nothing more than a flip phone and LG may have something for them up its sleeve.

Android Wear watch take a note

Microsoft has worked hard to ensure that its note taking application stands out from the crowd which is why its the company’s priority to be available on every possible platform out there. Earlier this year Google unveiled the Android Wear platform which has been built from the ground up for smartwatches. As Android Wear smartwatches gradually flood the market Microsoft has decided that its time to land on people’s’ wrists.

Today it announced the launch of OneNote for Android Wear.
The OneNote for Android Wear application is available as a free download from the Google Play Store. Taking notes with this app is very simple. Just download it and start dictating the notes. Users will have to stick with dictation for now as there’s no native keyboard in Android Wear.

In order to take a note on an Android Wear smartwatch simply say out loud “OK Google, take a note”and the app will spring up in action to record whatever little flash of genius has crossed your mind.

Do keep in mind though that OneNote for Android Wear requires a smartphone that’s powered by Android 4.3 or higher. Popular Android Wear smartwatches available in the market include Motorola Moto 360, Samsung Gear Live and the LG G Watch.

foxconn workers

Apple’s new iPhones were unveiled last week and while they brought new designs those who had been following up on news and rumors about the new smartphones were hardly surprised when they saw the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus being officially unveiled. That’s because shells of both 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models had leaked online multiple times over the past few months. The leaks often originated in China and some of them might have been the work of a Foxconn employee who has been detained for allegedly stealing iPhone 6 shells and selling them in the market.
