Microsoft-Lumia-640-XL-01Back in June 2015, T-Mobile announced that they would start selling the Lumia 640. Unfortunately it would seem that barely 2 months after the device was released on the carrier’s network that T-Mobile has decided that they will no longer be selling the handset.  It seems that this has to do with the demand for the handset.

In a statement T-Mobile provided to the folks at Windows Central, “We work closely with phone manufacturers, including Microsoft, to continually adjust our device portfolio based on supply and customer demand. As a result of this, we no longer have inventory to support taking online orders for the Lumia 640 – and Microsoft will not be providing us with additional inventory.” Read full post →Lumia 640 No Longer Sold By T-Mobile After 2 Months

malwareAs if the creation of malware wasn’t bad enough, it seems that a student from Carnegie Mellon University, a 20-year by the name of Morgan C. Culbertson, decided that he would profit from the creation of malware by selling it to other people. Culbertson had recently pleaded guilty in court for selling a malware he had created and could face up to 10 years in jail if found guilty.

To be specific, he pleaded guilty to a charge of “conspiracy to damage protected computers”. Culbertson is one of three men who were responsible for creating an Android malware called Dendroid, and that him and his partners had planned to sell the malware on an online marketplace for $300, essentially distributing the malware to others who might use it for even more nefarious purposes.

moto-360-smartwatch-review-1Word on the street has it that Motorola has a new Moto 360 smartwatch that they could be announcing in the near future, but the question is when? Could it be during IFA, or perhaps at a separate event later? However chances are it could be soon, and this is due to a recent observation that suggests that the first-gen Moto 360’s successor is imminent.

If you were to head on over to the Moto 360 website and try to customize the watch via Moto Maker, you will instead be redirected to Motorola’s Support page. If you think that this is a glitch, think again. Surfing on over to the main Motorola website and clicking its “Wearables” tab, you’ll realize that the only thing related to the Moto 360 they are selling are either the bands or protection for the watch.

DF-ST-87-06962If the IDC’s recent figures are right, Apple is apparently the world’s second largest wearable maker, and it seems that their efforts with the Apple Watch are paying off. According to a report from Reuters, it seems like Apple along with Boeing and Harvard, just to name a few, will be working with the Pentagon in developing wearables.

These wearables appear to be mainly focusing on flexibility because apart from being worn by people, the idea is that these wearables could potentially be molded where they can be equipped on the outside of jets or even ships, wearables that can be worn by soldiers or used to monitor structural integrity.

fb photo editWhen you upload photos onto Facebook, it’s a relatively straightforward process where you select the photos you want, add a caption, tag a friend, and you’re done. If you want to post-process your photo, you will need to do it beforehand on a separate app, like Photoshop for example.

However according to a report from The Next Web, it seems that Facebook has stepped up their photo editing tools on the web. Now when users upload photos onto the social media’s website, they have the option of doing more than just adding captions and tagging friends, as you can see in the screenshot above.

xbox-one-hands-on-review-02The Xbox One at the moment is Microsoft’s current console, although based on what we’ve seen in the past, we wouldn’t be surprised if in the future, Microsoft will make some design changes, maybe introduce a slimmer version of the console, and so on. However there has been a rumor suggesting that Microsoft could go further than that.

The rumor claims that Microsoft is working on an Xbox One Mini which is said to be a third the size of the original Xbox One. Now if you like that idea or if you hate that idea, either way it turns out that it is not true. This has been confirmed by Microsoft’s Xbox boss Phil Spencer who replied to a question on Twitter about the alleged console. Read full post →Phil Spencer Dismisses Xbox One Mini Rumors

There are many out there who feel that services such as Uber are taking jobs away from regular cab drivers. Whether or not you believe this is the case is a debate for another day, but in the meantime it seems that over in New York City, an app by the name of Arro will be trialed in an attempt to give NYC cabs a more competitive edge.

In fact the app itself functions more or less similar to how Uber’s own app works. When it is used to hail a cab, the driver will see your name and location on their screen. In turn when your fare has been accepted, you will then receive the driver’s name and medallion number, and it will also be able to save your credit card details so you can use the app to pay for your fare and even tip your driver.

lg nexus renderThe most recent rumor we have heard about the LG Nexus (2015) is that it will be released on the 29th of September. While the rumor did not mention anything about the Huawei Nexus, we can only assume that it will share a similar date, unless LG and Huawei plan on holding separate events, but given that these are Nexus devices, chances are Google will be calling the shots.

That being said, famed leaked @OnLeaks has posted a new rendering of the upcoming LG Nexus handset. This is a much clearer render from what we’ve seen before and it also lines up with an earlier leaked image. However what’s missing from this render is the Nexus branding on the back, but given that this is a rendering, perhaps it wasn’t designed to be used as marketing material, hence the omission of certain features.
