We’ve all heard the horror stories of phones exploding in people’s faces and it turned out to be due to aftermarket cheap LiPo batteries. TBH I’ve always pooh-poohed that stuff and figured they had been doing something stupid with their phones.

In a piece yesterday CNet reported that Android 4.4 (KitKat) is addressing Android fragmentation by decreasing the memory requirements of Android. Lowering the memory requirements allows for the possibility of installing Android 4.4 on older hardware. I am skeptical that Google providing the ability to install Android 4.4 on older hardware means that the hardware OEMs will actually release the upgrade for their older smartphones. Google is even not doing this as they are not making Android 4.4 available for the Galaxy Nexus. (more…)
At present the PC computers are not powerful enough to run an emulation of the PS4 hardware. PS4 is essentially a little modified high-end gaming PC with more or less standard hardware parts.

Meanwhile (more…)

It would appear that Apple was quite coy about one potential selling point on the iPad Air, although it did talk extensively about the tablet, its specifications, its features, and its “Air”-like thinner and lighter design. As a backdrop for this report, one should keep in mind that the iPad Air tablet is notable for being over 20 percent lighter and thinner than the iPad 4, specifically being 7.5 millimeters thick and just one pound heavy.
It is powered by a 64-bit A7 dual-core processor, and while it retains its (more…)
