While we're all about watching the technology universe to deliver you news here at SlashGear essentially round-the-clock, we certainly don't expect you the reader to have eyes-peeled all day and night. That's why we're delivering you the most important - or most far-reaching - news bits from over the past 12 hours or so here, in one easy-to-digest capsule. Today's journey begins with a bit of a Yahoo mishap.

Easily one of the largest stories of the past couple of days, you should know before you go anywhere, is the Lenovo purchase of Motorola from Google. Have a jump into the Lenovo comment on the situation if you've not heard anything (somehow or another) just quite yet (living under a rock on the moon).

Yahoo Mail Hacking

Yesterday in the latter half of the day Yahoo reported that they'd been hacked. It was Yahoo mail - Yahoo's email service - that was hacked, revealing what appeared to be the names and email addresses of an unknown number of users. While it doesn't appear that a whole lot of extremely vital information was lifted, it'd be best for you to change your passwords anyway.

If you start seeing a whole lot more spam in the immediate future from your best friend's Yahoo email, you'll know it started this week. Let them know however possible!

It's Google's World

Don Reisinger released a column by the name of 10 years from now it's Google's world: we'll just be living in it that you'll want to check out. It's here that Reisinger notes how quickly Google has grown and where it's quite obviously going - not just toward product updates, as so many manufacturers are today - but toward innovation.

Google is rolling out with robotics products, bringing in the first wave of wearables, and is moving in on research to help us live longer. What's not to love?

Xbox One Leaks Galore

There's been a rather sizable amount of Xbox One leaks over the past couple of days, yesterday's dishing up of details clearly taking the cake. What you'll see is a set of new Xbox One consoles in white, Titanfall, and without a disc-drive. This serving up of bits included Halo 5 information as well, including data on a very massive release later this year - followed by Halo 5 in 2015.

Samsung Galaxy 3 Neo

Samsung's next iteration of the Note has appeared with specifications that are a bit of a mix between the Note 2 and 3. What you'll see here is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, a device with a 5.5-inch display, S Pen, and two different kinds of processors. It'll all depend on how fast you wan to connect to the internet - 3G or 4G LTE.

Michael Bay Presents: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

There've been several key TMNT images shared (leaked) with the public over the past day or two, the whole set being collected here on SlashGear for your perusal. Here you'll learn what the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles look like in 2014, complete with human-looking-lips!

These turtles look a lot more "realistic" than their predecessors, working with beaks a lot more like real turtles would have - save the lips. They've also got their samurai roots back intact. You'll also see a rather vicious-looking Shredder coming your way, complete with freaky belly monster to boot.
