SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: December 5, 2012

There aren't too many differences between it and the rear housing for the iPhone 5, but there are enough to make the images noteworthy.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 13, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening everyone. We had a pretty big day, what with the reveal of the HTC DROID DNA and all. HTC announced that the DROID DNA will be arriving at Verizon on November 21, and we even managed to go hands-on with the device and its wireless charging dock. Of course, today was also the day that the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 became available on the Google Play Store. All but the 16GB Nexus 10 sold through pretty quickly, so we hope you got your hands on the device you wanted before Google put up the out of stock notices.

Libratone Zipp Review

Time was, if you wanted a wooly column of wireless musical pleasure, you had to train a sheep to stand upright and sing.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: July 17, 2012

This morning we've got a hot tip on the next generation of Google's Nexus lineup - it's a laptop-tablet hybrid and you're gonna love it. Microsoft has found a total of 28 million PCs affected by a browser choice coding error in which, believe it or not, users were not presented with a choice of which web browser they would like to use right out of the box.
