DJI Inspire 1 drone appears in leak ahead of launch

DJI Inspire 1 drone appears in leak ahead of launch

DJI's upcoming Inspire 1 drone appears to have leaked in a series of images captured during a test flight. The maker, which brought the popular Phantom 2 drone, is set to officially announce its Inspire 1 on November 12, and if these spy shots show the real deal, it will feature an H-style frame (as previously speculated). The images from the leak resemble the "transformable aerial vehicle" seen in a patent from DJI that was published back in mid-September, lending credence to the spy shots.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play Edward Snowden in new film

Oliver Stone, no stranger to charged political movies, is making a film based on the last few years of Edward Snowden’s life. The movie also has a star; Joseph Gordon-Levitt has agreed to take the leading role, playing Snowden as he chose to leak Government secrets and criss-cross the world looking for asylum. Set to start filming this January in Munich, the unnamed film is based on two biographies of Snowden, The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena.

Microsoft Lumia 535 details leaked, Lumia 1330 sighted

Microsoft Lumia 535 details leaked, Lumia 1330 sighted

There are two new Lumia devices rumored to be in the works, a smaller Lumia 535 and a murkier Lumia 1330. But with the myriad, though not exactly ubiquitous, Lumias around, what makes these two devices special? If these turn out to be the real deal, the two smartphones would be the first to bear the new "Microsoft Lumia" branding being pushed by the company. And if so, we are likely to see the two of them unveiled in Microsoft's #MoreLumia event scheduled this Tuesday.

BMW and Toyota hit concept stage on hybrid sports car deal

BMW and Toyota hit concept stage on hybrid sports car deal

BMW and Toyota's much-anticipated - and oft-rumored - collaboration on new sports cars has finally taken a step forward, the two companies revealed this week, but the end results are still far from the showroom. The German and Japanese marques began working together in 2012 on a Li-Ion battery project for EVs and hybrids, which flourished into a team effort on a new, midsized sports car duo with shared architecture wrapped in true-to-brand style and driving experience. Problem is, the project is already running about a year behind the initial schedule.

VUDU Spark streaming dongle spotted to take on Chromecast

VUDU Spark streaming dongle spotted to take on Chromecast

Walmart's VUDU streaming movie service looks set to get an HDMI dongle of its own, with the new hardware spotted passing through FCC testing ahead of its retail launch. Dubbed the VUDU Spark, the adapter follows in the well-worn footsteps of Google's Chromecast and Roku's Streaming Stick by hiding behind your TV in a spare HDMI port and connecting wirelessly to your router over WiFi. However, compared to some of the other set-top box solutions we've seen in recent months, Walmart's is looking a little one-dimensional.

New Apple Watch tip points to February 14 launch

New Apple Watch tip points to February 14 launch

Apple might have a lovely Valentine gift for its fans next year. That is, if this latest leak coming from France proves to be true. IGen claims that its reliable insider sources maintain that the Apple Watch will actually start selling on February 14 next year and will have two additional luxurious color options. This would run contrary to what Apple's own retail exec seems to have implied in a corporate message to retail employees, hinting that Apple's smartwatch won't be launching until spring 2015.

Jawbone MOVE and UP3 trackers tipped inbound

Following closely on the heels of Microsoft's new fitness tracker Band comes word that Jawbone has a couple new -- and cheaper -- devices up its own sleeve. One of these devices is called the "MOVE", and it will cost $50 according to The Information, where the tip surfaced. The second device will reportedly be called the UP3, and it will be more expensive, priced at $180 USD, just barely undercutting the Band and proving more expensive than the company's other UP products.

Moto Maxx might be a DROID Turbo for the rest of the world

Moto Maxx might be a DROID Turbo for the rest of the world

The DROID Turbo is a undoubtedly a drool-worthy smartphone, one that strangely eclipses the new Moto X in terms of specs but still comes in a considerably smaller package than the almost equivalent Nexus 6, also made by Motorola. The only wart on this device's metaphorical face is that it is forever exclusive to Verizon, which isn't a bad thing if you're a Verizon customer. There might be still some light at the end of the tunnel, however, with a certain Moto Maxx leaked to be a DROID Turbo for the rest of us.

Apple Watch now leaked to land in Spring 2015

Apple Watch now leaked to land in Spring 2015

Holding on to Apple's every word about the coming of the Apple Watch? You might want to hold on just a bit longer and a bit tighter then. Company Senior Vice President for Retail and Online Stores Angel Ahrendts was said to have given a video message to retail employees, which isn't exactly something out of the ordinary. What isn't ordinary, however, is that her message hinted that Apple's launch of its first ever and much awaited smartwatch might happen much later than expected, all the way into spring.

Microsoft Band wearable surfaces early in app releases

Microsoft Band wearable surfaces early in app releases

For reasons unknown, a trio of Microsoft apps have arrived in the big three app stores, with the Apple version in particular showing off a wearable called "Band" that is, presumably, the device expected to launch officially in the near future. Not much is revealed by the three app listings, though an official look at the product is certainly nothing to complain about. What we do see, however, follows nicely alongside the details that have surfaced over past months through different sources, the particulars of which we have after the jump.
