Galaxy S6 Edge Plus detailed with in-store photos

Galaxy S6 Edge Plus detailed with in-store photos

Today we get to see the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in all its pre-release glory. This device is the next in a line of unique Samsung devices with displays that spill over the edge of the phone. While the first "Edge" was a Galaxy Note, this device gets rid of the S Pen and sticks closer to the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, the most successful (of the two) Edge devices thus far. This device is as large as a Galaxy Note, but keeps the details of the Galaxy S6, providing a sort of hybrid device for public consumption.

Moto 360 2 details vs Samsung Gear A (before the fact)

Moto 360 2 details vs Samsung Gear A (before the fact)

Motorola will be following up on their first wildly successful "round" smartwatch, Moto 360, with a smartwatch that is, indeed, truly round. The information we've been passed today mixed with the details leaked over the past few weeks create a smartwatch that's tweaked ever-so-slightly. This device, tentatively titled "Moto 360 2", will follow up on the original with a body and software that will not put its predecessor out to pasture. Instead, Motorola will present a device that sits nicely beside the Moto 360 to present a two-tier smartwatch release approach.

Moto G tip reveals specs that confirm our suspicions

Moto G tip reveals specs that confirm our suspicions

The start of the second half of the year also marks the start of the second phase of new smartphone lineups. Which means another round of rumors, leaks, and tips from anonymous sources. Depending on Motorola's mood, we might see yet another batch of its Moto family sometime between September and November. Curiously, it isn't the next Moto X that has been the subject of many sightings but its more affordable sibling, the Moto G. Our tipster, who of course remains anonymous, paints us an almost complete picture of this 3rd gen smartphone's innards, which, as expected, is a mixed bag.

Google Glass 2 coming in 2016, but not for you

Google Glass 2 coming in 2016, but not for you

The second big release for Google Glass is on its way, but not in the way the remaining "Glass for Fun" enthusiasts might've hoped. Instead it would seem that those pushing for an enterprise angle for the headset have gotten their wish. This second-generation Google Glass won't be built for the public. It'll be built for businesses. While the possibility remains that Glass for Fun could pop up, for now it's more of a pipe dream for the average citizen and lover of leisure.

Report: Facebook wants to put music videos in the News Feed

Report: Facebook wants to put music videos in the News Feed

Social behemoth Facebook may have come out and stated it's not developing its own music streaming service, but it seems to still have an interest in getting music to its users. Specifically, it seems to want to put music videos in users' News Feed, and has already had talks with a number of music labels, according to the New York Times, which spoke to several anonymous sources. While the prior rumor about music streaming would've put Facebook in contest with Spotify and others, this sounds like it wants a piece of YouTube's pie.

This is Motorola’s new “Kinzie” phone

This is Motorola’s new “Kinzie” phone

Details for the next Motorola flagship device have leaked in two different iterations, one internationally, one domestic. The domestic version goes by codename "Kinzie" and is almost certainly headed for Verizon as a DROID device. Verizon will not release this device until later this year for more than one reason. The first reason is - they've just released new editions of the DROID Turbo right under our noses. The devices aren't all that different - they've just been given new paint jobs, so to speak.

iPhone 6s gets thick with features

iPhone 6s gets thick with features

First case specifications for the iPhone 6s have been released with height, width, and thickness of the next model. According to this spec sheet, case-makers might have to make some tiny adjustments to their molds. While the iPhone 6s will be the same width and height as its predecessor, it'll be just .2mm thicker. This means that the rubberiest of cases will be fine, while hard metal and plastic cases will need to be made anew. It also means there's more inside this device.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus detail rundown

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus detail rundown

Leaks aplenty have lent themselves to the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. This device is the next in a line of devices that come with curved edges - more than one, to be clear - in both standard and larger screen sizes. While the first Samsung Galaxy Note Edge was extremely similar to its size sibling, the Galaxy Note 4, this Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is sure to shake things up. This isn't going to be a curved Note, it's going to be a big S6.

Wi-Fi proxy could thwart cops, spies from finding you

Wi-Fi proxy could thwart cops, spies from finding you

The almost ridiculous extents which government agencies go through to get otherwise private data is sometimes being matched by equally almost ridiculous extents to protect it. Since Tor and VPNs no longer seem to be enough to protect user privacy, for good or for ill, some have taken seemingly drastic countermeasures. Like this Proxyham for example, which combines a Wi-Fi proxy with the concept of a HAM radio. Not only does it let users anonymously connect to Wi-Fi using almost unidentifiable low frequency radio channels, it also lets them connect from about 2.5 miles away.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 details leaked: GS6 eclipsed

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 details leaked: GS6 eclipsed

Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 has been revealed in early images depicting the device as a very close hardware relative of the Galaxy S6. This means glass back, a rounded metal rim, and a very high quality camera. In the images of cases as posted (likely out of embargo) to auction sites internationally and passed on to SlashGear anonymously, we see that this device is just as similar to the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy Note 4 was to the Galaxy S5. One mirrors and out-does the other.

Comcast must reveal online troll’s identity, court rules

Comcast must reveal online troll’s identity, court rules

The comment sections of websites are usually a good place to go if you are looking for vitriol and filth, and often a commenter’s misplaced rage or unwarranted insults are passed on anonymously, the real person behind the words never having to face up to them. Every so often, though, we hear a story about trolls being hit with real-world ramifications, and such is the case with one anonymous Internet poster at the center of a recent Illinois Supreme Court ruling.

Canadian government websites hit with cyberattack

Following disclosure of a massive breach of government data in the United States (and a second breach), word has surfaced that the Canadian government has undergone its own cyberattack.

The cyberattack was confirmed by Treasury Board President Tony Clement, and it affected several agencies in the nation’s government, including the websites of its Transport, Justice, Foreign Affairs, Industry, Employment, and Labor departments.
