Lenovo Mobile to be shuttered into Motorola

Lenovo Mobile to be shuttered into Motorola

Just a little over two months since Chen Xudong took over the helm of Lenovo's mobile business, he is making perhaps the biggest announcement to the biggest change in the subsidiary. In the still undisclosed future, Lenovo Mobile will be fully integrated into Motorola and then will cease to exist as a separate and distinct entity. Thia practically makes Motorola THE Lenovo smartphone company, except perhaps for the existence of ZUK. This is in line with Lenovo's plan to let Motorola handle more and more of its mobile operations.

LG Rolly Keyboard rolls into a stick to fit in your bag

LG Rolly Keyboard rolls into a stick to fit in your bag

There are literally dozens of keyboard accessories out there for tablets and even smartphones, but most of them fall into two categories. Either they present a comfortable full-sized keyboard but are uncomfortably bulky, or they are incredibly petite but inevitably result in tangled or cramped fingers. Since our mobile devices these days are just as useful for work as they are for play, LG has tried to design the Rolly Keyboard that fits both types. Its solution? Have the keyboard roll into a rather fat stick.

Cosmic butterfly: Hubble pictures the Twin Jet Nebula

Cosmic butterfly: Hubble pictures the Twin Jet Nebula

Forget the butterflies in your stomach, this one is in space. OK, so maybe it's a bit of a deformed butterfly, but the image of what is popularly known as the Twin Jet Nebula captured by the ever so reliable Hubble Space Telescope is just as beautiful, exhibiting a grand display of colors. But almost like a real butterfly whose existence signals its impeding death, this delightful show is really the dying breath of an old star, as if giving the universe one last light show before it kicks the cosmic bucket.

Fire Phone 2 unlikely as Amazon scales back consumer devices

Fire Phone 2 unlikely as Amazon scales back consumer devices

That headline probably doesn't come as a surprise. A successor to the highly disparaged Fire Phone might be highly unlikely now that Amazon has reportedly laid off dozens of engineers at its hush hush Lab126 hardware development center, particularly those that worked on the smartphone flop. But more than just Fire Phone, however, this still unconfirmed move puts into question the retail giant's capability to put out consumer devices that will stand the test of time, not to mention scrutiny, like its Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets.

Europe cheer up! You might still get a Galaxy Note 5

Europe cheer up! You might still get a Galaxy Note 5

Either Samsung has silently recanted due to the backlash or it was never really sure about its international push. Either way, things seem to be looking up for our European friends as far as one of Samsung's latest flagships go. Numerous sightings, and even one directly from Samsung's website, have all hinted that the Galaxy Note 5 might be coming to Europe after all. This despite Samsung "officially" stating that only the Galaxy S6 edge+ is intended for that market, a decision that remains a baffling mystery to this day.

Adobe says stop using ‘Photoshop’ as a generic term

Adobe says stop using ‘Photoshop’ as a generic term

When a company’s product so thoroughly corners a market that it becomes well-known even by those who have never used it, the company faces a problem: generic use of that product’s name. You’re likely to hear the term “dumpster” used generically, for example, as it is now a genericized trademark due to its common usage. Other trademarks have suffered the same fate — yo-yo, for example, and aspirin. Adobe doesn’t want its popular photo-editing software Photoshop to suffer the same fate, but it may be too late to stop it.

Turok is being restored for PC, will release on Steam

Night Dive Studios will re-animate the classic games Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil for the PC. The game will essentially be restored for modern machines, and once finished, it will be made available through Steam, GamersGate, Humble, and more. The game first launched nearly two decades ago in 1997, and quickly earned itself a faithful fan base. The game was rebooted several years ago for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, but did not enjoy the same success as the original titles.

Ashley Madison TV show project revealed

Amidst all the news revolving around the Ashley Madison hack is one bizarre report: a TV project based on the hack is in the pipeline. It seems the plan at this point is to shop the show around, and whether any networks will bite is yet to be seen. But regardless, OutEast Entertainment is set to produce a project for television, and there are already two writers in place. While unexpected, the news isn't very surprising.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens to show on all IMAX screens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will take over all IMAX large-format screens in North America, it is being reported, as well as most of the IMAX screens abroad.

The newest Star Wars movie will be arriving on December 18; a portion of it was filmed with IMAX cameras to better leverage the related displays.

Intel invests $60M in drone maker Yuneec for future collaboration

This week the folks at Intel Capital have announced a $60-million dollar investment in Yuneec, a worldwide leaker in electric aviation.
