SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: July 6th, 2012

This morning it's time to get real with HTC, as their not so fabulous Q2 profit report is reacted to by our own Chris Davies in a column by the name of HTC's Precipice Moment. In completely unrelated news, Microsoft will be releasing a Halo 4 Xbox 360 sometime in the future and it's high time we started printing blood vessels.

You'll be interested to know that the box floating around your Piccsy screen is not a gigantic USB stick, it's a Ouya Android device, made to be a game streaming box for just $99 on kickstarter – see it soon! Watch out for the framers out there looking to make Android look bad with Malware Botnet like you've never seen before.

You will also be having a fabulous time working with the Quad GeForce GTX 690 server – a blast of power from all sides! Microsoft has confirmed that there will be no Windows Home Server for the Windows 8 generation.

Samsung is doing quite a bit better this past quarter than HTC has done.

NASA is showing off some brand new images of Mars. The folks at Blue have released a brand new Tiki USB mic that's out at Best Buy today – and be sure to check out their new setup at the big box stores that are left as well! Nokia has released their until-now-secretive Batman: Dark Knight Rises 3D Gotham map. And of course, don't forget the Amazon Kindle Phone – also very possibly coming soon, too.
