Hyundai concept uses smartphone NFC to lock and unlock vehicle

This week the folks at Hyundai have previewed a concept vehicle system in which you'll be able to use your smartphone to unlock your vehicle with a physical tap. This system uses NFC tags to make the connection between your smartphone and your vehicle, taking away the need for you to use a key at all, whatsoever.

DROID DNA Review

DROID DNA Review

HTC has gone all out with the DROID DNA, and it pays dividends: the new Verizon exclusive breaks records with its 1080p display, putting HTC back into the limelight with a legitimate flagship.

1080p smartphone displays offer no visual difference over 720p

The Next Microsoft: The branding Surface deserves

The Next Microsoft: The branding Surface deserves

Think Microsoft and what do you get: old, enterprise, and well behind the times, perhaps?
