Samsung is in a unique position among Android smartphone manufacturers, which allows it to create devices like the Galaxy S4 Zoom, a rumored S4 variant that showed up for certification at the Bluetooth SIG this week (via UnwiredView) as the “SM-C101.” The S4 Zoom is reportedly going to resemble the unreleased S4 Mini, but boast a 16 megapixel rear camera with optical zoom.
Optical zoom is really the one remaining advantage that point and shoot cameras have over smartphone shooters, at least from a hardware perspective. Other companies, including LG and Huawei have been working on building smartphone optical zoom tech, too, but if Samsung brings this one to market with its rumored 10x zoom, it’ll be the strongest one currently available, beating the Nokia 808 PureView’s measly 3X power.
Samsung has the luxury of experimenting with different form factors, and using its flagship branding to offer a range of devices that potentially cut off competitors by giving users a complete device to match ever competitive advantage. Like the S4 but want a more manageably sized screen like on the iPhone 5? Get the S4 mini. Like the S4 but want something a little better able to withstand the environment and harsh conditions like the Xperia Z? Get the rumored rugged S4 variant. Want an S4 but with the best smartphone camera in the business, which exceeds even Nokia’s most ambitious efforts? Get the S4 Zoom.
Samsung’s lineup variety strategy may be more about blocking the competition and casting a wide net than anything else, but a big zoom on a mobile camera will have a lasting effect on the industry if it goes over well and produces impressive results. More importantly, it could bring about even bigger changes for the dwindling standalone point-and-shoot camera market, which means other smartphone OEMs won’t be the only ones watching to see if and when the Galaxy S4 Zoom makes a splash, which could happen as early as June according to release date rumors.
Everyone is getting into original online TV series. EVERYONE. The digital video arms race is here.
Welcome to TV’s strange new future. These are its channels.
This year at the ad industry's NewFronts, where the internet pitches its best video programming to advertisers, nearly 1 billion ad dollars are expected to change hands as seemingly everyone tries to turn their sites into a TV networks.
Online video, as it turns out, is wildly popular. YouTube's Robert Kyncl told reporters on Wednesday that users spent 50% more time watching YouTube in 2012. YouTube now has more than 1 billion unique users each month and 6 billion hours of video are uploaded monthly. In very raw terms, it's the biggest TV network in the world.
So last year YouTube made a substantial investment in original channels, subsidizing promising directors, independent studios and major media organizations. This year the company announced it'll add an additional $ 200 million to channels as well. For some, it's been a huge success. Two days ago the YouTube sensation Awesomeness TV was acquired by Dreamworks for a deal that could be worth up to $ 117 million. Others have floundered.
But YouTube's success, and the hype surrounding shows like Netflix's House of Cards, have spawned an online original programming arms race of sorts. Here are all the people making TV shows — like, full-on, old-school TV series, celebrities and all — on the internet right now.
This week AOL announced 15 (15!!) original new series:
Entertainment: City.Ballet., #CandidlyNicole

One of Facebook’s greatest inventions is the photo tag, which made it simple for anyone to browse photos tagged of their friends, no matter which friend uploaded each photo. Today Instagram is following suit with the launch of Photos of You, a new profile section that includes every photo friends have tagged with your username. The feature is rolling out today as part of Instagram 3.5 for both iOS and Android.
“One of the most common things people do on Instagram is @ mention their friends when they want to add them to a photo,” Facebook says, and Photos of You plans to address that. Once you’ve taken a photo, a new button lets you tag people and places, like your friend Dana or a slice from Joe’s Pizza. As you browse your feed,…
Back in October of last year, The Verge wrote about the app MindMeld, a sort of Siri on steroids that could listen to an eight-person conversation and suggest information the speakers involved might want to see. Today Samsung, Intel, and Telefónica announced a strategic investment in Expect Labs, the company behind the technology, which the creators have dubbed “anticipatory computing.”
“We’re focused on building software that listens to what’s happening in a room and delivers information to people before they know they need it,” says Expect Labs CEO Tim Tuttle. “We’re fortunate that some of the biggest companies in the world agree this is the future and have decided to partner with us.”

Bitcoin, the decentralized virtual currency now worth over $ 1 billion, was created to be as open and transparent as feasible. Unlike traditional currency, you can download every Bitcoin transaction that’s ever before taken place and, more interestingly, tap into those deals in near actual time. Using this freely offered data, College of California pupil Maximillian Laumeister produced “Pay attention to Bitcoin,” a website that produces soothing chimes for every transaction that happens on the Bitcoin network.

As he does every year, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang took the stage at the GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California today, telling a packed audience how important the company’s processors are for intensive computing tasks. He shook hands, received endorsements, demoed state-of-the-art computer simulations, and introduced a few new products.
Then, he went straight to the telephone, signed onto an investor call, and shared his endgame, the plan that ties it all together: Nvidia wants to take advantage of what he calls a “seismic change” in the computing industry to have its chips drive every single computer in existence. “Our strategy, ultimately, is to light every single pixel,” said Huang. “There are 5.5 billion HD displays by…

WARNING: SPIDER PICTURES. That should kind of go without saying though because it’s a post about spiders, you know? Stop emailing me.
In news that’s sure to send real estate prices on Antarctica skyrocketing, scientists have confirmed that spiders that prey on bats have been found on every continent except the icy giant. I’m coming, Santa! “Antarctica is at the south pole.” Right, I knew that.
The researchers write that bat-catching spiders were reported from “virtually every continent,” with the exception of Antarctica. About 80% of the reported “bat catches” were performed by web-building spiders and 12% to hunting spiders (i.e. spiders that forage without the use of a web):
While in some instances bats entangled in spider webs may have died of exhaustion, starvation, dehydration, and/or hyperthermia (i.e., non-predation death), there were numerous other instances where spiders were seen actively attacking, killing, and eating the captured bats (i.e., predation). This evidence suggests that spider predation on flying vertebrates is more widespread than previously assumed.
I love bats, so obviously this is heartbreaking news for me. *wiping fake tear* Now if you’ll excuse me, I need a minute to compose myself. Actually, I’m just going to take the rest of the afternoon off. If my boss asks tell him somebody died. No — tell him EVERYBODY died. That should buy me coming in late tomorrow too.
Hit the jump for a compilation shot of a bunch of bats in webs.
Rick & rsquo; s American Cafe is the most popular bar where I went to school in Ann Arbor, MI. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, rainfall or shine, the line to obtain into Rick & rsquo; s covers around the block. One entrepreneurial student with a terrific view of bench jerry-rigged his webcam to broadcast live from his bedroom window to an internet site, and the site went viral. RicksLine.com was indicated “to produce a method for people to have this view of the line and enter faster without the hassle of waiting in the cold,” co-creator Will O & rsquo; Leary informed The Michigan Daily. The site went on to generate income flanking its video feed with advertisements, however eventually closed down as soon as its creators relocated away. A new RicksLine hasn & rsquo; t yet emerged, regardless of the fact that doubtlessly …
