There seems to be a lot of emphasis placed on creating smartwatches that resemble traditional watches these days. We’ve seen efforts from the likes of Motorola with their Moto 360, and LG with their LG Watch Urbane. However it looks like a new competitor has entered the fray from the likes of Olio and their Model One smartwatch.

If you haven’t heard of Olio before, don’t worry because we haven’t either, although they do make some lofty claims. For example their CEO Steve Jacobs claims to have led development at Apple, Google, Beats by Dre, HP, and Amazon which are pretty impressive accomplishments, and he also claims to have gotten top talent from said companies to aid in the development of the Model One.

htc-one-m9-live-2As it stands, the HTC One M9 does not come with built-in wireless charging and to be honest, we’re not sure if lacking that feature is a deal-breaker for many customers, although it would be a nice feature to have. That being said if you had a reason to get excited over the next flagship handset from HTC, how does wireless charging sound to you?

According to a report out of Taiwan (via TechRadar), they claim to have heard from HTC’s Senior Director of Project Management and Electrical Structure Howard Lee that wireless charging will be a standard feature in their next flagship handset. What this means is that the HTC One M10, or whatever they will call it, will come with wireless charging capabilities built into it.

ingressBack in 2012 Google launched an augmented reality game called Ingress that was developed by Niantic Labs. It was an interesting experiment and surprisingly the game proved to be something of a cult hit where a quick search on Google+ shows that engagement does not appear to be slowing down, so much so that a report from The Information (paywall; via Android Police) has suggested that Google is thinking about taking the game and turning it into a TV show.

Samsung-AMD-mergerAccording to a recent rumor coming from a Korean business media, word on the street has it that Samsung could be thinking about acquiring AMD which is a little odd when you think about it. Granted, both companies are in the computer business and both companies make their own chips, but they are also very different.

Samsung’s computers generally rely on Intel’s chips and AMD has little to no presence in the smartphone and tablet market. However, there are some possibilities to the rumored acquisition and that is Samsung could be interested in AMD’s vast patent portfolio when it come to the designing and building of chips, and let’s not forget the Samsung’s own decades of experience in the field as well. After all, Google did buy Motorola for $12B before reselling it (minus patents) to Lenovo for $3B, giving the patents a $9B value. AMD’s current valuation is $2B since its stock has been going down since 2012. Read full post →Samsung Rumored To Be Considering AMD Acquisition
