LG has unveiled one of the most interesting looking TVs I've seen a long time at IFA 2013. The TV is a 55-inch OLED set called the Gallery OLED TV 55EA8800. This TV certainly isn't the first OLED set we've seen from LG, but it is the first to have the cool picture frame design. The screen features a very slim bezel and is mounted inside of what appears to be a picture frame.

Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch leaks with health focus

Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch has apparently leaked, just days ahead of the wearable's expected debut at Samsung's pre-IFA September 4 event. The bulky touchscreen smartwatch was unofficially shown off in prototype form to VentureBeat, along with details from an internal marketing video which describe the onboard WiFi and Bluetooth, roughly 3-inch OLED display, and a 4-megapixel camera integrated into the strap. Samsung apparently expects wearers to use that camera as a food-logging tool, taking snapshots of meals and then tagging them with type so as to build up a diet diary for heath purposes.

Samsung Galaxy Note III to see budget edition while 2014 holds full metal jacket

It's not often when a single smartphone company has two reports leaking from the same arena saying they're creating both higher-end and lower-end products in the same breath.

What we're seeing here first is a collection of tablets - large and small - aimed directly at Apple and Samsung competition, made to add to their current set of internationally-released devices already on the market. We'll likely see these devices up close and personal at Berlin-based IFA 2013 as well, early next month.

Being able to print out photographs, e-mails, and other documents is something that we take pretty much for granted. This task has been easily accomplished from your computer for decades. However, it can be much more difficult to print out photos and other documents from your smartphone without having to share what you want to print the computer via e-mail or other methods.

Beyond Megapixels: Mobile cameras rethink the numbers game

Beyond Megapixels: Mobile cameras rethink the numbers game

Once upon a time, mobile megapixels were the key. In fact, not so many years ago, many questioned whether there was any value whatsoever in having a camera built into your phone. Convergence for its own sake is undeniably a problem in today's crossover-soaked market, but it's now hard to argue that photography and the modern smartphone aren't a compelling match. As the technology - and the rivalry - has increased, though, so the simple megapixel has lost some of its clarity, and with the smartphone stakes never higher, there's a revolution of sorts underway to reframe mobile imagery.
