Windows 10 dark theme, Spartan browser (allegedly) surface in screenshots

Microsoft introduced Windows 10 back in September 2014, and though we won't be seeing it arrive until the end of this year, the company has dropped some details about it. Never one to be content, the Internet has fished around and procured its own details, usually in the form of rumors and speculation, and that trend holds true now that we're into the new year. A couple of screenshots have surfaced of what are said to be Windows 10's dark theme, as well as its rumored and codenamed Spartan browser.

Microsoft Spartan browser UI shows up in blurry leaks

CES 2015 is starting to wind down, but before we warm up the engines for MWC next month, Microsoft might have a thing or two to say first. The consumer preview of Windows 10 is due later this month, and that latest version of the OS may also bring with it a slightly different web browsing experience. Leaked partial screenshots of that new-old browser, simply called "Spartan", are making rounds over the Internet, bringing mixed emotions and hope of a slightly redesigned Microsoft web browser.

iPad Pro mold possibly leaked

iPad Pro mold possibly leaked

The iPad Pro; we still don’t know what to make of it. Apple says it’s not even a thing yet, while various leaks suggest it’s in the works and on its way. Via Weibo, we are now seeing what is believed to be a mold for the iPad Pro. In some cold manufacturing outfit somewhere in the world, a metal mold sits on forklift tines. Is it the iPad Pro rear cover? There is certainly evidence it could be, but enough suggesting it’s not.

LG tipped to launch webOS smartwatches in early 2016

LG tipped to launch webOS smartwatches in early 2016

In October 2014, word surfaced that LG would be making a smartwatch running webOS, something that came to light when a developer page referencing a "webOS SmartWatch" and "webOS Wear" briefly appeared online. Though that has been pulled and nothing since has been confirmed regarding this rumor, rumbles of the plan have again gone public, and sources are now saying the plan is both valid and in the works. The smartwatches will reportedly be launched by early 2016, and will be joined by another wearable of a more ambiguous sorts.

Apple iBeacon puck detailed – but who is it for?

Apple iBeacon puck detailed – but who is it for?

Fresh details about Apple's mysterious iBeacon hardware, spotted crossing the FCC's test-bench last year, have emerged, suggesting the Cupertino firm could use it to encourage developers to adopt the micro-location system. Signs of the Apple iBeacon (A1573) first surfaced in mid-July, a battery-powered Bluetooth puck that would transmit location details to a nearby iOS device, allowing apps and services to understand the user's position with far greater accuracy than GPS or WiFi positioning would commonly allow. Now, thanks to the user manual and testing photos for the iBeacon becoming available, we know a little more about what Apple might have in mind for the gadget.

Forget IE: Microsoft Spartan browser tipped for Windows 10

Forget IE: Microsoft Spartan browser tipped for Windows 10

Internet Explorer is hardly the most loved of browsers, and Microsoft is reportedly planning a drastic fix with a new browser codenamed Spartan tipped to launch alongside Windows 10. Intended to be more lightweight and flexible - borrowing a look and feel more akin to Google's Chrome or Mozilla's Firefox - than previous Microsoft web browsers, Spartan would stick with Microsoft's existing engine technologies under the hood, but wrap them up in such a way that the company's engineers hope users forget whatever bad experiences they may have had with legacy software such as IE6.

Apple Pay data demands add tension to UK launch

Apple Pay data demands add tension to UK launch

Apple Pay is set to launch in the UK in the first half of 2015, but banks are concerned as to how much data Apple demands as part of its contactless payment service, insiders claims. Revealed as a feature of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earlier this year, Apple Pay - which uses a combination of NFC and a secure digital wallet chip on the smartphones - has already gained traction in the US, with everything from grocery shopping through clothes and even hotel rooms and Disney trips now supporting the service. However, although the spread of Apple Pay to other countries is effectively inevitable, Apple is said to be still facing some push-back from its banking partners over the fine print.

Some photos have leaked onto the web that show the machined case of a smartphone that is unreleased. The case is large enough to be a phablet and according to rumors, it belongs to the Huawei Ascend P8. We don't know much about the case and as with all rumors; you need some salt on the side. What we can tell is that it is a one-piece chunk of milled aluminum.

Bluetooth SIG holds clues to next ASUS ZenFone

Bluetooth SIG holds clues to next ASUS ZenFone

ASUS may be content with leaving us with only a 10-second teaser of what sounds like a dual camera smartphone, that doesn't mean we won't be able to see more information elsewhere. In this case, "elsewhere" happens to be the folders of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), which handles certification of Bluetooth-enabled devices. But while the filing does give us more details than what ASUS is willing to share, it unfortunately paints a picture of a ZenFone that might not match ASUS' hype.

Tizen-powered Samsung Z1 photos leak, no launch date yet

Tizen-powered Samsung Z1 photos leak, no launch date yet

The still unannounced Z1 is Samsung's latest, perhaps its last, hurrah to get the Tizen platform on a smartphone. Already delayed by a few weeks, at least based on initial rumors, the smartphone has now been spotted in a few press materials not yet meant for public eyes. But we've seen this before and we've seen press materials before, even official ones. None of which mattered in the end. The biggest question on everyone's mind now is "when" (perhaps other than "why").
