Minecraft didn’t abandon Windows Phone, but also sort of did

Minecraft didn’t abandon Windows Phone, but also sort of did

This week the folks at Microsoft's Mojang have announced an update for Minecraft on Windows Phone. Not just any Windows Phone, but Windows 10 Mobile - specifically NOT Windows Phone 8. You see, Minecraft stopped getting updated for Windows Phone 8 back in October of 2016, and will never be updated for that OS ever again. For Windows 10 Mobile, however, it's time to get some new features!

Instagram’s 10x photos or videos per post is just a blog

Instagram’s 10x photos or videos per post is just a blog

The newest update to Instagram will allow users to insert up to 10x photos or 10x videos in a single post. As Instagram makes this change, they also pave the way to the future - a future in which users are able to post more than 10 photos, and more than 10 videos, and put as much text as they want, and maybe even someday have comments and more share buttons, too. Maybe Instagram's next move will be to allow users to post quotes, audio without video, and insert links too. Is Instagram just becoming Tumblr?

Where can I get 5G data? Verizon’s 11 cities, and soon

Verizon's start of 5G-speed data for mobile devices - smartphones, that is - begins in the first half of this year. The company has been careful not to be too specific in giving the exact time and date of the roll-out for 5G data speeds, but has given a set of 11 markets where it'll start. In these 11 markets, 5G will be coming to pilot customers soon.

Apple Campus 2 officially named Apple Park, will open its doors in April

Apple Campus 2 officially named Apple Park, will open its doors in April

After years of hearing about it, it seems that Apple Campus 2 - now named "Apple Park" - will be ready to house employees beginning in April. The project was first announced in 2013 by late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. At the time, completion was originally scheduled for 2015. It's clear now that Apple missed that original goal pretty significantly, and even though employees will start moving to the new campus in April, construction won't be completed until later in the year.

Music to my ears: the rise of high-res audio

Music to my ears: the rise of high-res audio

With few exceptions, smartphones have never really been seen as serious audio equipment because of compromises that must be made for the sake of portability, size, and price. Lately, however, there has been an undercurrent in both the mobile industry as well as the digital audio market that is turning heads, or rather ears. More than ever, greater attention is being paid to digital audio quality, even on smartphones, as terms like “hi-res audio” become mainstream. But what is hi-res audio really and how is it affecting even the mobile market? We take a deeper look, or rather a deeper listen.

Samsung Flow will soon let Galaxy phones unlock Windows 10 PCs

Samsung Flow will soon let Galaxy phones unlock Windows 10 PCs

Samsung Flow isn’t actually new. Its name first came up in November 2014 as Samsung’s take on the idea of Continuity promoted by Apple. It rolled out in limited beta in May the following year as a way for users of Android-powered Galaxy smartphones and tablets to share states and content between two devices. However, it really took off when Samsung reintroduced the app in the Windows-powered Galaxy TabPro S and limited it to only that. But come April, if all goes according to plan, Samsung Flow will be able to connect any Samsung Galaxy phone with any Windows 10 PC.

Meitu T8 boasts of a 12MP Dual Pixel selfie camera

Meitu T8 boasts of a 12MP Dual Pixel selfie camera

Chinese manufacturers have always been quicker to jump on the latest fads, unlike the larger companies that are more wary of missing earnings forecasts. So when the smartphone world decided that selfies are the next big thing, many of these OEMs came out flashy gimmicks and features. The newly unveiled Meitu T8, however, probably takes the cake. Sure, it might not have the highest megapixel count around, but it boasts of having the first, and probably only, smartphone with a front camera with Dual Pixel technology.

Remix Singularity is Jide’s Android answer to Windows Continuum

Remix Singularity is Jide’s Android answer to Windows Continuum

Our smartphones have become so powerful and their apps so sophisticated that they could even be used to power basic desktop computing activities. There have, in fact, a few attempts at actually making that a formal thing, like Microsoft’s Continuum, Ubuntu’s Convergence, and the Andromium, now called Sentio, Superbook. Most of these, however, have sometimes arbitrary limitations on what users can do. Remix Singularity, however, promises to be different, giving users the exact same apps and familiar Android experience, just in different forms depending on what the phone is attached to.

Galaxy S8 details unearthed from Galaxy Tab S3 system dump

The Galaxy Tab S3 is going to be Samsung’s nominal MWC 2017 star, but it is already being upstaged by the Galaxy S8. Especially if Samsung does have a teaser of sorts prepared next week. Case in point, the system image for the tablet has been leaked but, lo and behold, it supposedly contains clipart for the Galaxy S8. Take it for what it’s worth since we don’t know yet the connection between the two. These images, however, are quite telling of some of the features we expect to come in April when the Galaxy S8 does arrive.

LG G6 teaser confirms that, yes, it will be waterproof

It’s just a few days before MWC 2017, so, naturally, LG is kicking off its marketing engines into full gear. Which means even more breadcrumbs of clues, some of which we already more or less know. Still, it’s good to see some more or less formal confirmation of those features. LG has all but confirmed that the LG G6 will be waterproof but now it is saying it as clear as this water. But as they on TV, “don’t try this at home”.
