htc-one-m9-live-3One of the features of the HTC One M9 is that it uses Gorilla Glass 4 which is Corning’s latest glass technology that is supposedly tougher and more durable than its predecessors. However it seems that not all HTC One M9 handsets were made equal as a tweet from @upleaks has revealed that some handsets were made using Gorilla Glass 3.

According to what seemed like a leaked document @upleaks obtained, it mentions that some HTC One M9 handsets were made with Gorilla Glass 3, and some were made using Gorilla Glass 4. It is unclear as to which batches these are and if they might be sorted by region or just chosen at random, but if it is true it certainly will not go down well for HTC.

galaxy j1 verizonEarlier this year Samsung announced the Galaxy J1. This is a handset whose specs aren’t particularly impressive, but given its low-end hardware, it came with a very affordable price tag as well. Now if you’re in the market for a cheap phone perhaps to use as a secondary device, or maybe one to give to your kids, you might want to keep an eye out for the handset.

Thanks to the folks at TechnoBuffalo, they have managed to get their hands on leaked images of the Samsung Galaxy J1 with Verizon’s branding on it, all of which seems to suggest that the phone will be arriving stateside and will be sold on Verizon. It is unclear if there will be other versions for other carriers in the US, but for now the leak only points towards Verizon as the most likely candidate.

mirror's edge 2The first Mirror’s Edge was released in 2008 and it was a unique game as it offered gamers an interesting perspective and take on first-person action games. For those unfamiliar, it basically puts gamers into the shoes of a character who is skilled in parkour and has to make her way around the city and battle her enemies using the skills at her disposal.

Safe to say this made many fans curious as to what the sequel might be like, which it was finally announced during E3 2013. That was 2 years ago and if you’re wondering when the game might be released, it seems that you will have to wait just a little bit more.

daimler truckWe’ve heard of self-driving cars, but what about self-driving trucks? You might recall that over the years, Daimler has been working on a self-driving truck where the goal is to have the trucks drive themselves which in turn would allow the drivers to rest, catch up on some sleep, and ultimately reduce the amount of accidents caused by truck drivers who have been driving for days on end trying to make deadlines.

The good news is that it looks like that future is here, sort of, as the Daimler Freightliner Inspiration has officially hit the road, making it the world’s first self-driving semi-truck. The truck is based on the regular 18-wheeler sold by Daimler around the world, with the main difference being that this particular model has been given a hi-tech makeover that allows it to drive itself.

While there are some photographers who have over the years learnt how to position their food properly and angle it nicely so that it looks good on Instagram, unfortunately the reverse is true where some users just snap photos without thinking about the food or what it looks like.

beats musicAccording to an earlier report from Billboard, it was suggested that Apple’s relaunch of their Beats Music service might skip the rumored June date. Apparently this has to do with the record labels and Apple who are still unable to reach a deal with one another. How true is this? It’s hard to say but according to a new report from 9to5Mac, they are reporting the opposite.

They have learned from their sources that the Beats Music relaunch will take place in June. It is expected to be announced at WWDC 2015 which kicks off early in the month, and the new service will go a few weeks after.

google play offlineMobile games are priced all over the spectrum, with some adopting the free-to-play model, while others charging as much as $10. However the question is, what’s a fair price to charge for a game, or an app if we’re speaking in general? Naturally a lot of things are taken into consideration, like the time spent developing it, testing it, marketing it, and etc.

However it seems Google is more than happy to allow Android devs to experiment with its prices. According to a report from The Information (paywall; via Engadget), the company is reportedly thinking of introducing a feature where Android devs could price their apps differently, meaning that one person could see it priced at $1, while another could see it priced at $2.
