This morning we’ve got mishaps, leaks, breaks, and hacks galore – it’s not like we planned it that way, it’s just that there’s so much happening it’s nuts! Have a peek first at an item that does not fit into one of those categories: the Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite made for taking on the Nexus 7 directly. Then it’s off to the races: Nokia and Android NFC exploits detailed at the massive hacker and developer convention known as Black Hat. Nokia’s Meltemi cancelled entirely. Zynga posting a gigantic $23 million dollar loss. Microsoft having its Windows Phone 8 SDK leak out early. And that’s not all!
Apple’s Power Nap is up for the MacBook Air but isn’t quite prepared for the Retina MacBook Pro. The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S III has had a local search break in its newest update to software. Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12 will be available on August 3rd for $99.99 for all your voice dictation needs.
Analysts are saying that the Samsung Galaxy S III is a big part of the reason that the sales for Samsung phones trounced Apple twice over in the second quarter of this year. Google Talk is down. There’s an alien solar system out there that’s not all that unlike our own.
Nokia may well be revealing several Windows Phone 8 devices on the 5th of September. Windows 8 will have simplified printing according to Microsoft. The second quarter of this year once again had the iPad taking most of the tablet cake. That rumor you saw with the $1000 Microsoft Surface Tablet was not real – not entirely real, anyway.
You can check out the Razer BlackWidow 2013 edition gaming keyboard right this minute. Also the Razer Ouroboros gaming mouse has been revealed in just about as strange a configuration as you can imagine.
