Featured Image -- 1239

Originally posted on TIME:

Recently, Sharp became the latest multi-faceted electronics company to get into the American smartphone game. In conjunction with Sprint, it launched the Aquos Crystal phone, a 5-inch, bezel-less Android handheld that will be available both as a contract phone and a pre-paid option for Virgin and Boost Mobile customers.

The Aquos Crystal is undoubtedly a flagship phone, but it will be available at a budget phone price. Sprint customers can get it for $19.99 with a two year contract, $0 down and $10 per month on Sprint’s Easy Pay, or $149 outright on Boost and Virgin. That price makes the phone, which already has an impressive standout feature, even more attractive.

The bezel around smartphone screens has gotten smaller and smaller each month as makers try to fit in large displays without making the phones themselves larger. Sharp found a way to eliminate the bezel on three sides…

The new tech in cars today  is buffling,  I was buffled when the new Mcalaren P1 was launched ( plug-in hybrid supercar by British automotive manufacturer McLaren Automotive.). The specs on this car are amazing, the McLaren P1 is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive design that uses a carbon fibre monocoque and roof structure safety cage concept called MonoCage, which is a development of the MonoCell used in the current MP4-12C and MP4-12C Spider upgrade that came out in early 2012.

The P1 features a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine that is only similar to the MP4-12C motor in its displacement.[6] The twin turbos boost the petrol motor at 2.4 bar to deliver 727 bhp (542 kW) and 719 Nm (531 lb ft) at 7500 rpm, combined with an in-house developed electric motor producing 176 bhp (131 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb ft).

Here’s the new iPhone 6, Coming September 9!?

Originally posted on Elie M. Chahine:

iPhone 6 (5)The Apple iPhone 6 are starting to pour in frantically as the launch event nears. The latest one clings to the September 9 announcement date instead of the September 19 one and complements the statement with a list of the specs and a ton of pictures of the phone itself and the retail box.

iPhone 6 (3)

By now we’re tired of repeating this but here goes – take these with a grain of salt as they could be just a clever hoax or a dummy unit or just a pre-production hardware that has differs from the final units.

iPhone 6 (1)

There are enough clues in the images above to suggest this as just another fake device or phone with Android software made out to mimic Apple’s iOS. For starters the Calendar icon looks fake. Second the hardware looks awfully unpolished with a plastic-looking front panel and a protruding camera lens on the back and…

Microsoft Promises Fix For Surface Pro 3 Overheating Issue

Featured Image -- 1215

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

The issue that is causing some Surface Pro 3 devices to restart and tell users that they are overheating is an error, according to Microsoft. The company has promised a fix in short order.

Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 tablet hybrid has an Intel Core i7 processor option; Microsoft says the chip requires “[its] fan to spin more regularly and at higher speeds – and for the unit to run slightly warmer.” Reasonable enough. I’ve noticed that my loaner Core i5-based Surface Pro 3 can get a bit warm when docked, but that’s not too surprising given its hardware mix when you consider the size of the device.

According to the software company, “a very small number” of Pro 3 devices are impacted.

It’s been an interesting rollout for the Surface Pro 3. I recently lost a bet regarding Surface revenue in Microsoft’s most recent quarter due to my miscomprehension of how…

Verizon-Droid-Ultra-Video-002As of lately, we’ve heard all kinds of rumors about the next generation of the Moto X+1, Moto G+2 (G2) and even the Moto 360. While the flagship is rumored to have a 5.2-inch 1080p display and a Snapdragon 801, it appears that it is not the only high-end device for Motorola this year, as a new device surfaced off the leak stream, and it might be even better than the flagship that is due to launch in less than a month from now.

A leak info screen shot of a Motorola device with the name of “Quark_Verizon” bears the model number XT1254. Now, from the Verizon part, I can safely assume that it is another Droid variant or the rumored Moto S that has been in the rumors for the pass few days, and it might be the most powerful phone for Motorola yet. According to this screen shot…
