SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: December 21, 2012

Welcome to Friday evening everyone. Depending on who you choose to believe, today was the day it was all supposed to come crashing down, but since that doesn't seem like it'll be happening, let's recap the news from the day and then jump into the weekend, shall we?

We had a new Acer-related leak today, with benchmarks for the rumored V350 flagship phone surfacing, as well as images for the ASUS ME172V tablet.

Facebook’s $16bn IPO means nothing today

The biggest tech event of the year - if you believe the financial pundits - has been and gone, leaving analysts, shareholders and Mark Zuckerberg to pick through the remains of the Facebook IPO.

What we're to understand here is that Google's propensity to select much better codenames than the manufacturers who create phones based on their mobile OS Android continues here with "Majel," a voice controlled assistant made to compete against Apple's iPhone 4S-based Siri. Majel is short for Majel Barrett, both Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry's wife and the voice of the computer on the starship Enterprise*.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 22 2011

Welcome to another edition of the SlashGear Week in Review. Monday we put up our review of the HTC Flyer WiFi tablet. We figure that the tablet will win over many people that want something smaller than the iPad with a pen stylus. Monday reports came in that a third worker had died from injuries sustained in the explosion at the Foxconn plant in China. The explosion is thought to be the result of combustible aluminum dust but the investigation is ongoing.
