samsung z2Early this year Samsung officially announced the Samsung Z1, making this the company’s first Tizen smartphone ever which is saying something as this has been in the works for quite some time. Oddly enough it seems that Samsung could already be working on a successor according to the rumors.

Now thanks to the folks at Tizen Experts, they claim to have gotten their hands on what appears to be the successor to the Samsung Z1, the Samsung Z2. The handset is rumored for a launch in the first half of 2015 and assuming that is true, it certainly makes sense that photos of the handset would be surfacing by now, although how real they are is anyone’s guess.

htc-m9eEarly last month, HTC announced the HTC One M9 Plus which we thought was odd given that some aspects of the phone was better than the HTC One M9, which is the company’s flagship phone at the moment. That being said it seems that the One M9 variants are still being churned out by the company.

According to the folks at Engadget, they have spotted in China’s TENAA database another HTC handset, this time going by the name of the HTC One M9e. Based on its specs it seems like this is a variant of the HTC One M9 Plus, except that instead of sporting a metal body, the handset will feature a plastic build instead which could also help make it more affordable.

If you’re looking for some interesting pop cultured inspired characters to play in NetherRealm’s Mortal Kombat X, you might have heard that Jason Voorhes of Friday the 13th fame would be making itself into the game. Well if you’re curious as to how the character plays and how gory things could get, wonder no more.

The folks at NetherRealm have recently released the trailer for Jason and as you can imagine, him being of the famed Friday the 13th horror franchise, his moves are pretty gruesome.

android distroIt is the month of May which also means that it’s time to look at the Android distribution figures. Now if you remember, last month we reported that Android 5.x Lollipop’s distribution was sitting at the 5.4% mark which we have to say wasn’t particularly impressive. However it means that those numbers have since jumped and in the process nearly doubled.

According to the latest numbers found on the Android website, Android Lollipop’s distribution is at 9.7% which like we said, is almost double that of last month’s figures. Granted this isn’t exactly the same 80% mark that iOS enjoys, but for the numbers to almost double in a month is pretty impressive. Assuming they keep this up, we could be looking at some pretty high numbers before the next major Android build is released.

Many might remember that a few months ago, The Pirate Bay was raided by the Swedish police and in the process was taken offline. However it eventually made its way back online and for those who thought that things were back to normal, it does not look like that is the case. According to pirate-bay-flagreports, it appears that The Pirate Bay has gone offline once again.

Attempting to navigate to the .se domain results in an Error 526 which is apparently due to an invalid SSL certificate. Like the error suggests, this could be due to a misconfigured or expired SSL certificate, thus resulting in the website being unable to be accessed by its users. It could also signal that the website could have run into some legal troubles once again. Read full post →The Pirate Bay Is Down Again
