Samsung teases Android Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 4

Samsung teases Android Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 4

Samsung has finally spoken up about Android 5.0. Or rather, in this case, it's more like a whisper. But we'll take anything over the silence it has been observing for almost a week now. Over at its Twitter account, the Korean OEM is actually advertising the Galaxy Note 4's QHD Super AMOLED display, but it is using a screen filled with bright colored candy of the lollipop kind. It is effectively hinting that Android Lollipop will be coming soon. As to when, we still don't know.

Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 9860 arrives with Action Center

The Windows 10 Technical Preview became available on October 1st, and now following closely after it is the first update build, Build 9860. Microsoft's Gabe Aul introduced the new build today, saying that updates will sometimes be frequent and sometimes be spaced longer apart -- regardless, each will bring improvements and other changes, as well as the bugs users should expect to encounter for the time being. Though the first update is bringing a slew of changes, the most notable one is perhaps the inclusion of Action Center.

Apple Maps Connect ushers in listings portal for businesses

Apple Maps Connect ushers in listings portal for businesses

Apple has rolled out a new do-it-yourself listings portal for small businesses called Apple Maps Connect. Through it, business owners or select others working on their behalf can list a company on Apple Maps whenever they'd like, doing so with an instant verification option. This opens up the listings to any business owner who wants to hop on and add their company; Apple is also giving them the chance to sign up for iBeacon priority installation through it (though certain terms apply for the latter category).

iPad Air 2 Review – Apple builds a new flagship

iPad Air 2 Review – Apple builds a new flagship

Apple is bullish on tablets and, for all it may be the slimmest and lightest of its breed, the iPad Air 2 is undeniably its new heavyweight champion. Dropping weight and bulk while simultaneously gaining power, the iPad Air 2 also dips into the best-selling iPhone 6's pockets for features like Touch ID and Apple Pay. Question is, though, has the new Air done enough to make itself a must-have upgrade?

iPad mini 3 Review – Refinement not Revolution

iPad mini 3 Review – Refinement not Revolution

For many tablet fans, Apple's second-generation iPad mini hit the sweet spot. Keeping the bag- and hand-friendly design of the original iPad mini, but adding a Retina display, it replaced standalone ereaders and held the phablet fort until the iPhone 6 Plus arrived. Technology can't stand still, though, and so 2014 brings the iPad mini 3. With the changes far more moderate than the iPad Air 2, though, does the iPad mini 3's previous charm remain as strong? Read on for our full review.

Homemade flying car crashes in Florida, catches fire

Homemade flying car crashes in Florida, catches fire

Some people take their DIY projects very seriously, as was apparently the case with a duo in Florida who crashed in their Maverick flying car. The Maverick is a homemade machine (it isn't clear whether the passengers bought it or made it), and surprisingly enough, it managed to get in the air with both inside. The downside to the story is where it ended badly: the car made it just high enough to crash spectacularly, injuring the two passengers and causing the vehicle to catch on fire.

Taylor Swift song is 8 seconds of static, still hits #1 in Canada

Taylor Swift song is 8 seconds of static, still hits #1 in Canada

How often do you download a song without previewing it first? If it is an artist you're fond of, the odds are likely high, as you figure it's something you'll want in your collection. We have to assume that is the reason behind what happened in Canada recently, where a newly released Taylor Swift song hit the #1 slot...even though it was only 8 seconds of loud, obnoxious static. It's either that, or our Canadian friends have a rather eclectic taste in music.

Apple, GT Advanced officially part ways

Apple, GT Advanced officially part ways

After a protracted relationship that churned out no physical product from their famed Arizona facility, GT Advanced and Apple have parted ways. The separation is said to be amicable, and comes on the heels of GT’s bankruptcy and subsequent bashing of their deal with Apple. Calling the arrangement “oppressive”, GT failed to meet thresholds for getting the facility up and running, which led Apple to hold back payments in their $500 million deal. Now, GT Advanced will need to sell off equipment to pay Apple.

Dish Network and Turner squabble, channels go dark

Dish Network and Turner squabble, channels go dark

Contract disputes are a common thing, and we've seen them span all varieties of companies: Amazon has had its share of battles this year, for example, and we've seen television watchers suffer as a result of soured negotiations. That latter issue has again arisen, this time affecting Dish Network subscribers who enjoy watching certain channels, CNN among them. It seems the satellite company is in a dispute with Turner over contractual issues, and as a result several channels -- fairly notable and high-demand ones -- have been pulled.

Yahoo earnings: 17% of revenue is from mobile ads

Yahoo earnings: 17% of revenue is from mobile ads

When Marissa Mayer took over at Yahoo, the company was in a tailspin. At first blush, her shopping spree after assuming control didn’t seem to help. Spending big cash on properties like Tumblr seemed like they may do more harm than good. Now, with Yahoo’s recent earnings report, we find out Mayer might have been taking a few steps back to start sprinting and get up to speed. Yahoo’s numbers now reflect their mobile properties, and just how well they’re doing for the once dominant search giant.
