The concept behind The Power Purse is simple. Instead of lugging around a power backpack or working with a pouch and a separate mobile charger, The Power Purse is 2-in-1.

It would appear that the LG G3 is going to take some heavy cues from the last generation, building on the LG G2’s unique look and feel.

If you have a Verizon* Samsung Galaxy S5 and you’re experiencing a camera error this week, you’re not alone. Several - an unknown number, that is - users have reportedly had what’s likely the same problem as you’re having. In addition to the error: "Warning: Camera Failed," the back-facing camera simply does not work.
Eyefi has announced a new service called Eyefi Cloud that is designed to make any images you capture with a camera using an Eyefi memory card available instantly on the could service.

The goal of Eyefi Cloud is to remove the time-consuming process of having to share those photos across multiple devices.
Did you know that you have a camera on the front of your smartphone? The folks behind the app Frontback know you do, and they’re aiming to bring the app - already a hit on iOS (per usual) - to Android. This app takes a photo with your phone’s back-facing camera, another photo with your phone’s front-facing camera, then attaches the two for a single tall photo you can share.
