Samsung has just announced its latest flagship mirror-less camera and Samsung is pulling no punches. The NX1 is the only camera in its class with a 28 mega-pixel sensor and 205 phase detection auto-focusing points – that’s more AF points than the current king of the hill, the Sony a6000 – and a maximum 15 frame per second continuous shooting mode. In short, it’s … Continue reading Samsung’s NX1 is super fast auto-focusing beast!

As we’ve known for some time, today is Samsung’s big Galaxy S 4 announcement day and they’ve spared no expense: a big presentation at the world famous Radio City Music Hall in New York City, as well as a huge billboard in the middle of Times Square. Some companies however, just want to see their competitors burn – LG did their best to take the … Continue reading LG to Samsung: “We Troll Hard”
Remember the landmark ruling in Apple’s favor following the big Apple v. Samsung patent lawsuit last summer? Well the TL;DR version could be summed up as follows: A jury found that Samsung “willfully” infringed upon some of Apple’s patents and awarded them $1.049 Billion. Samsung was clearly unhappy with the results and contested the jury’s decision. Good on them. Today, U.S. District Court Judge Lucy … Continue reading Judge denies Apple additional damages; Samsung still gotta pay
First things first, unboxing and initial impressions. Packaging was very straightforward, giving you everything you’d expect; the Chromebook, a charging cable, and paperwork along with a Chrome logo sticker. Upon first startup we were asked to first choose a wifi network, and then login to a Gmail account. After logging in a new tab page opens with a brief walkthrough of the Chromebook and how … Continue reading Samsung Series 3 Chromebook Review
A couple of days ago, Samsung wowed the tech world by managing to keep a secret and unveiled the first official Windows Phone 8 device – beating Microsoft’s hardware partner, Nokia, to the punch.

The image below comes from Twitter and is supposed to be … Continue reading Have Nokia’s new Lumia phones been leaked?

It’s pretty widely known that the impact from the decision in last week’s Apple vs. Samsung ruling would create lots of uncertainty from current owners of Android devices.

Big news coming out of Seoul this morning; our friends over at Android Police have reported that Samsung has announced their new 5.8-inch Galaxy Player. It’s a behemoth of PMP that looks like Galaxy S III and seems to require cargo pants for storage.

I’ve got mosquito bites all over and I’m not really enjoying it. Keep that in mind while I grump my way through the news. After 25 years, Microsoft gets a new Logo. Sure, it’s not “Metro” but it looks like it. ಠ_ಠ 25 years after birth, Microsoft has decided that it needs a new logo. According to the Seattle Times, the new logo design is supposed … Continue reading Roundup: The Rebranding
I’ll start ya off with a cartoon that involves learning and math and stuff. Unity will be supported – and support – Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. Yessir, the Unity game engine will work on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. This is awesome because WP8 has taken kernel cues from Windows 8 and will truly support multi-core processing, allowing games like those … Continue reading Roundup: Mathmagical Cartoons
Hey, it’s a roundup! Big deal, move along. Samsung/Apple Jurors to fill out pre-made forms to clarify judgement. This is a novel idea, but still very strange. Samsung and Apple are supposed to agree on a single form (agree? Yeah, ok, that’s worked well so far) to give to jurors at the end of the trial. The form, in essence, asks what patents have been … Continue reading Roundup: Garbage Man
It’s been an odd week. Team Fortress Mann vs Machine was released, and it’s quite fun if you can find a match. The Engineering Team behind Curiosity did an AMA. While simultaneously being smart, witty and awesome, these engineers went fairly in-depth about the Mars rover Curiosity, including what programming language they use, and what their favorite tool on the rover is. Hint, it’s … Continue reading Roundup: Week of Wonder
Sorry I missed a few days. Actually, I’m not. I took some time off of work and decided I would actually spend time away from the computer! Amazing. Heart of Coppola from Brian Carroll on Vimeo. US Hypersonic bird dies a fiery death. Sadly, it probably won’t re-birth itself from the ashes, as I’m sure they’re spread over miles of the Pacific Ocean. The X-51A, … Continue reading Roundup: Missing Links
Good morning! It’s a great day to be a Doctor Who fan, except for the fact that we’re all waiting for this next season to start. I’m getting antsy. Samsung wants nothing to do with RIM. Surprise! Samsung, super successful Android and Windows Phone handset maker, wants nothing to do with RIM. Apparently some rumors were spreading that Samsung was going to buy the company, … Continue reading Roundup: August 9, 2012
