Google Didn’t Blow It: Facebook Still Has A Long Way to Go to Catch YouTube

In a post on Business Insider, Nicholas Carlson sounds the alarm stating that Facebook has caught up to and is poised to surpass YouTube in terms of daily video views. He cites an article written by Fortune’s Erin Griffith (which is a very good read, I recommend checking it out — it’s in-depth and detailed) that discusses Facebook’s huge investment in video as his main piece of evidence. In Griffith’s article she writes, “In April, Facebook hit 4 billion views per day, matching the latest estimates [...]

Microsoft Is Finally Back On The Right Track

In the YouTube video introducing the “phone companion” app that will be on Windows 10 PCs to help users install Cortana on their devices, Microsoft seemingly confirmed that Cortana will be coming to iOS and Android devices later this year. The video also shows off Cortana on both Android and iOS, which will look similar to the Windows counterpart and can answer the same queries across devices.

But what really caught my attention in the video (above) was the following line at the end of the video:

“We’re [...]

Analyst Says iPhone 6s Will Feature 2GB RAM, Rose Gold Case

When it comes to predicting the future of our gadgets, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is usually one to watch, since his predictions tend to come true—or pretty close to it. For weeks, he’s been making predictions about Apple’s efforts to make a new version of the iPhone 6, casually referred to as the iPhone 6s, and Tuesday is no different.

The new iPhone 6s might continue with Apple’s trend of gold obsession.

According to Kuo, as reported by a post on AppleInsider, the new iPhone 6s will [...]

Android M to Give Users More Privacy Controls

That didn’t take long: hot on the heels of Google’s tacit confirmation that Android M would make an appearance at I/O later this month, Bloomberg reported that the new version of the mobile OS would offer greater control over a smartphone’s privacy settings.

According to the report, some Google insiders say that Android M will “give users more detailed choices over what aps can access,” which includes “photos, contacts or location.” That’s significant since so many apps that users download come with a laundry list of user [...]

1st Nintendo Smartphone Game Slated for Late 2015

Nintendo outlined some more specifics in its plans to begin developing smartphone and tablet games on Friday, announcing via its latest financial results briefing that the first such title would hit before the end of this calendar year. We can also expect to see a total of five games by March of 2017.

Yup: five games in a little under two years.

That’s not amazing in terms of output! But, it also seems to signal a commitment on Nintendo’s part to making sure that it doesn’t just pump out shovelware that no one will want. [...]

iOS 9 Details Allegedly Leaked

It’s getting warmer, and that means summer is almost here. And with summer comes that most beloved of events for Apple fans: WWDC, which will be set for this coming June. There, we’re likely to see a new version of iOS, its mobile operating system for the iPhone and iPad. A post on 9to5Mac says that Apple will probably have iOS 8.4 on offer—but iOS 9 is moving forward for its own debut before too long.

Get ready to see Apple CEO Tim Cook tell us about the next iOS pretty soon.

The post is pretty [...]

QR Codes Are Back…in Snapchat Form

It seems that Snapchat has found a way to spread its gospel from the digital world to the physical one in the form of “Snapcodes,” specific, individualized images that allow Snapchat users to connect with other users through smartphone camera scans. Just like QR Codes that sent users to different websites, Snapcodes are unique identifiers that a user photographs to gain access to other users.

Snapchat continues to come up with new ways to engage its users.

The big difference between QR Codes and [...]

More Evidence of an LG Windows Phone Appears

In the wake of yesterday’s cool Windows 10 Continuum feature news from Microsoft Build, it might be interesting to find out as much about cool new Windows Phones as possible. After all, with Continuum, Windows Phones can become full Windows computers as long as they’re hooked up to a monitor and keyboard. As such, I’m very interested to learn that more evidence of a new Windows Phone from LG has popped up on the web.

WinBeta reported on the phone on Monday, having found listings for the device under LG’s Open Source Code [...]

New Custom Voice Actions Hitting Google Now

One of Android’s coolest features—its voice-activated “Okay Google” feature, powered by Google Now—is about to get a little cooler. The company announced today that a new batch of custom voice commands were just launched, with even more on the way.

So far, Google has two examples. Say “Okay Google, listen to NPR” will launch an audio stream on the NPR app, while “Okay Google, show attractions near me on TripAdvisor” does, well, that. It’s a nice couple of additions, and it’s even better that Google has plans for even more [...]
