08/23/2013, As someone who wears glasses for the majority of my life, I can tell you just how important eye exams are, especially if there’s a small bit of change in my eyes. Being able to see the world with as much detail as possible is extremely important for me, especially when it comes to work. Unfortunately, not everyone can get to an eye doctor, especially if they live in remote […]
08/14/2013, The day has finally arrived, the straw that broke the feature phone’s back is now on the “winning side”. I am referring to total sales figures of smartphones as well as feature phones. Needless to say, today marks the first time in the history of mankind that smartphones have overtaken feature phones where sales volume is concerned. In the second quarter of 2013, a total of 435 million handsets were […]
08/11/2013, When it comes to the world of smartphones, you could say that South Korean manufacturers such as LG, Samsung and Pantech have come an extremely long way since their early days of foraying into this highly competitive market. Back when Samsung’s phones felt like they used extremely cheap plastic that could break all too easily, and Nokia was the 800 lbs. gorilla that did not look as though they could […]
08/06/2013, Earlier this month, we brought you word that NEC has decided to quit the highly competitive market for good, although they will continue to have their interests represented in the tablet world. It seems that fellow Japanese company, Panasonic, too, has decided to take a bow out of the smartphone market – and this bit of information is said to have come from telling a Japanese operator that they will […]
08/01/2013, Sometime slightly after the middle of this month, we did report that NEC would be kissing goodbye to the smartphone market, and this is because NEC’s smartphone division did not perform well enough to warrant the justification of its existence. For those of you who recently picked up the NEC Terrain from AT&T, now is not the time to panic, as NEC has reassured customers that current smartphone models will […]
07/29/2013, Up until today, ASUS has had pretty decent success in the tablet world, especially when they are the ones behind the Nexus 7 tablet as well as the recently announced Nexus 7 2 from Google. Well, on their own, there is also the good looking Transformer series that fly the ASUS banner high, but where smartphones are concerned, you can say that ASUS has remained pretty much on the sidelines […]
07/17/2013, The world’s population has been growing at such an explosive rate that we could be touching the magical 7 billion mark in the near future, and there are still so many issues left to ponder over. Will there be enough food and water for everyone, will most countries develop in tandem with one another, and will abject poverty and human trafficking be stamped out? Those are heavy questions to answer, […]
07/15/2013, Update 7/16/2013, 13h53 PT: HP has reached Ubergizmo with an official statement about the image above: This is not an HP phone. The photo is a fabrication and is not a photo of anything HP has in the works. Someone is making stuff up. With the advent of the Internet as well as the easy availability of image capturing devices, you can more or less say that leaks have gotten […]
07/03/2013, The Japanese sequel to "The Ring" will have a special version that interacts with the audience through a 4D smartphone application.

05/13/2013, How does a government earn its keep and run the country well? Apart from borrowing more money than it can ever repay, resulting in an ever growing national debt year on year, you could always find new ways to stem the bleeding by increasing government coffers, and one of the most commonly used methods would be to introduce new taxes as well as higher rates for prevailing taxes. Well, it […]
05/13/2013, Whenever one talks about smartphones, the name Philips would definitely not pop up on anyone’s radar. After all, this is a company that churned out regular feature phones in the past, and even then they did not manage to make quite a name for themselves, either, as back then, Nokia proved to be the 800 lbs gorilla that everyone wanted to topple. Fast forward to today, and we have phones […]
04/15/2013, “Physician, heal thyself!” is most probably quoted from time to time, but have you ever heard of a judge who actually fined himself due to contempt of court? I am quite sure that some bizarre things have happened in the courtroom before, but Judge Raymond Voet in Michigan certainly did raise some eyebrows recently, as he issued a fine to himself for contempt of court. Basically, Judge Voet’s courtroom policy […]
