HTC snubs ASUS’ buyout hints

HTC snubs ASUS’ buyout hints

ASUS Chairman Johnny Shih might have just been throwing suggestions in the air, in pubic, but HTC is making its official stance known. It isn't interested in a merger. These words were posted in Taiwan's stock exchange, responding to Shih's statements to shareholders last week.

There could be a shake-up on the horizon for two of Taiwan's biggest tech manufacturers. On Friday, ASUS Chairman Johnny Shih made comments about acquiring HTC, iterating that it was an option that hasn't been ruled out.

It's not meant to be pitted up against your Galaxies and your HTC ones. Instead, this is a warrior taking on the often forgotten "I just bought a new phone and didn't need to tie myself down to a 2-year contract or sell a kidney" crowd.

ASUS has just revealed an updated model of its 32-inch ProArt monitor (PA329Q), which still offers Ultra HD/4K (3840 x 2160) in 16:9, but now with the full Adobe RGB color gamut, making it an interesting option for its targeted professional market, as opposed to the last year's monitor with only sRGB.

ASUS ZenFone Selfie comes with 13MP shooters

This is a selfie generation, or at least that's what device makers are trying to both justify and actually promote. From digital cameras to smartphones, you are sure to find some semblance of a selfie-friendly feature, either covertly or overtly mentioned.

Dubbed, what else, the ZenFone Selfie, this mid-ranger is designed with features, both hardware and software, to cater to all your self photography needs.
