Flipboard digital iPad magazine auto-curates Twitter & Facebook content

Twitter is abuzz with talk of Flipboard, the latest news reader for the iPad and another attempt to pull curated content down onto Apple's slate.  Unlike the Pulse News Reader, Flipboard pairs pre-selected content feeds with links shared by your Facebook and Twitter friends; logging into your respective accounts allows the app to show you a custom digital magazine of the news, videos and other links they're currently sharing.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Review

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Review

Big, clever, and finally beautiful: the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has come of age. Heir to the phablet empire Samsung itself created, the Note 5 takes the esteemed features of its predecessor and clads them in a premium package worthy of the equally high-end price tag. There'll be tears on the S Pen, mind, as in doing so Samsung has jettisoned some of the key advantages that owners of prior Notes were most vocal about. Question is, has the mainstreaming of the Galaxy Note 5 come at too great a cost?

Samsung Galaxy S5 Review

Samsung Galaxy S5 Review

Samsung cannot be ignored, and the importance of the Galaxy S5 cannot be overlooked. New bearer of the crown of “best-known Android smartphone” it’s a chance not only for Samsung to make money, but to demonstrate what cleverness it can bake into a flagship device. Samsung’s approach to innovation has been more scattershot than focused, however, and with each generation of Galaxy there’s been equally as many needless bells & whistles as there have been legitimately useful additions. The Galaxy S5, Samsung insists, has been built with deliberation, but has the company spent its time on the right enhancements? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Facebook Paper review: Zuckerberg finally “gets” mobile

Facebook Paper review: Zuckerberg finally “gets” mobile

Facebook and mobile haven't had an easy run of it. Facebook Home, an attempt to capitalize on mobile with a near-walled-garden met with derision and faded with barely a whimper; so far, the only real success stories Facebook has had on smartphones have been the results of acquisitions, not its own development. Paper, new for 2014, aims to change all that, an iPhone-exclusive news reader that promises the best shared content from your friends as well as trusted third-party sources. It's a handsome app, that's clear, but does it do enough to usurp Flipboard, Pulse, and others from the homescreen?

Summly app no longer functional soon: tech to return in Yahoo

The Yahoo purchase of the app Summly and the technology therein have had one rather important effect on those users out there that've been using the system thus far - they're fresh out of luck. As the 17-year-old creator of the Summly ecosystem has become a millionaire overnight, he'll soon be working for Yahoo full time, and the Summly app will no longer be available to the public. Such is the nature of this takeover.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2 hands-on

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2 hands-on

Motorola's first-gen XOOM launched with plenty of promise at the beginning of the year, but Honeycomb - and some expensive data plans from Verizon - left the Android alternative to the iPad looking less than appealing. Now Motorola's second attempt at the segment, the XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2, have arrived, fresh to the SlashGear test bench with new angular styling, faster processors and some special features that might at least give new tablet shoppers an idea what exactly to use big-screen slates for. Read on for our first impressions.
