The announcement was made earlier today by the nation's Minister for National Economy Mihaly Varga, and it has received harsh criticism from both locals and those abroad.

This BMW i3 Coupe lookalike could school EV makers

This BMW i3 Coupe lookalike could school EV makers

Electric cars may already be out on the roads around us, but that doesn't mean the segment isn't ripe for some innovation, and while Tesla might be doing its level best to push speed and luxury at the top end of the market, so one German team believes it has something similarly ground-breaking at the entry-level. Visio.M is the handiwork of researchers at TUM in Germany, tasked with cooking up an electric-powered city car that not only looks and drives well, but which cuts some of the legacy ties with old-fashioned production techniques, inefficient materials, and needless expense. The result is a somewhat 80s-esque coupe with a range just shy of 100 miles.

Jawbone Drop app hands-on: strange musical connectivity

This afternoon we've been having some fun playing with the new Jawbone app called Drop. This app allows you to connect to your RDIO or Spotify account to play music in just about as simplified a manner as possible. Almost as if the folks at Jawbone hired the best User Interface experts they could, then told them to dismiss the UI of RDIO and Spotify altogether. With great effect. And with the ability to share your favorite beats with your buddies through Twiter, of course.

Twitter wants your digits to log you in on every app

Twitter is hoping to embed itself as the authenticating heart of every app and service, with a new way to use phone numbers rather than usernames or email addresses a key part of its new Fabric mobile platform for developers. Dubbed Digits, the system allows developers to inject Twitter into their apps and use it as an invisible sign-up system, tied to their cellphone number. However, Twitter Fabric faces an uphill battle trying to win mobile developers onto its side, after the short-message social platform so comprehensively yanked the rug out from under third-party Twitter apps.

Galaxy S5 Plus revealed, but why?

Galaxy S5 Plus revealed, but why?

Just as Samsung revealed a late-season upgrade to their Galaxy S4 with the "LTE-A" model last year, this year’s Galaxy S5 Plus has arrived. Here in 2014, this means an upgrade past the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 to a higher-grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 with 2.5GHz clock speed, Krait 450 CPUs, and Adreno 420 GPUs. What’s all that mean to the lay person? It means it can process better, harder, faster, stronger. This device also works with LTE Cat. 6 instead of Cat. 4, meaning you can go faster once again - supposing you've got LTE Cat. 6 in your area, that is to say.
