California’s “kill switch” law is now in full swing

Starting this month, any smartphone made after July 1 that will be sold in the State of California is legally required not only to have a kill switch feature but must also have it turned on by default.

This is just the latest, and perhaps the most forceful, effort to curb smartphone theft, which has thankfully declined substantially in recent months.

Today Yahoo updated the launcher known as Yahoo Aviate to include a service much like Google's own "Google Now" feature. Instead of users embracing this sort of alternate universe feature, users of Yahoo Aviate have responded with less-than-positive remarks aplenty. Yahoo calls this new feature Smart Stream, suggesting that it "puts relevant information front and center so you can take action right away." "What if your phone could just show you the information you wanted," said Paul Montoy-Wilson, Product Manager of Yahoo Aviate and Co-Founder of Aviate, "instead of forcing you through multiple steps to get there?"

Samsung trademarks S6 Edge Plus name

Samsung trademarks S6 Edge Plus name

A few weeks back a leak turned up online claiming to be a rendering of a coming Samsung smartphone dubbed the S6 Edge Plus.

Another bit of evidence has now surfaced hinting that there may indeed be a S6 Edge Plus in the works.

Sony Xperia Z3+ camera might be its own saving grace

Sony may have had a misstep with the Xperia Z4/Xperia Z3+ when it came to the choice of a Snapdragon 810 processor, but it is almost inconceivable that it would mess up the camera sensor, one of the key businesses of the company. Sony might have just proven it still got chops in that field. Digital photography benchmarking site DxOMark has just published their report on the latest Sony "flagship" and, as expected, it fares fairly well. Though not enough to become the new king of the hill.

Cyanogen-powered Alacatel TOUCH Hero 2+ is no more

It hasn't even seen the light of day and it no longer will. Alcatel and Cyanogen, Inc. have jointly announced that they are canceling their previously announced plans for a ONETOUCH Hero 2+ remix.
