Sony puts a price tag on Ultra Thin, Ultra HD Android TVs

E3 2015 might be over, but Sony had one last reveal to make that's related to gaming and so much more. It has finally announced when its ridiculously thin 4K Ultra HD smart TVs will be available and for how much.

Google launches Android Clock in Play Store

Google has launched another standalone Android app on the Google Play Store — its simple stock clock app for Android, giving users another option for their time related activities.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus: anatomy of a busted “leak”

This morning the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus was revealed to the press by a leakster. This device was tipped to work with dimensions that have it running at around 154.45 x 75.80 x 6.85mm, or right around 108.69% taller than the original Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

What we're about to do here is take this leak apart with Photoshop and math, piece by piece.
