Gartner’s third-quarter smartphone research report is out, and on the surface it paints a very flattering portrait for Google. Mirroring Strategy Analytics’ report at the end of last month, Gartner also estimates that Android has crossed the symbolic 80 percent mark, reaching 81.9 percent of …
It’s been a long day of demos, tough questions and talking to potential consumers for our Insert Coin competitors. But the judges and readers have spoken, and we have our five finalists. My Bell, DI Wire, GrowCubes, Smart Power Strip and BlinkScan will be moving on to the next round where they’ll be …
This is a video of a driver in Chicago who hits a cab, then tries to flee the scene at low speed. Unfortunately for him, he’s the world’s worst driver and crashes into five more cars in the process. Think of him as Ryan Gosling’s character in ‘Drive’, if that character had been raised in the woods and thought cars were metal animals you could sit inside.
Witnesses heard the cab driver ask the motorist for his insurance. “He tried to just take care of things peacefully in the beginning, but then once he saw that he was trying to take off, that’s when he took it upon himself to get traffic to stop him,” witness Karen Morris said. “It looked like it was straight out of a movie. We were all just stunned.” Adding to the driving debacle, Police News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic said the 20-year-old motorist, who didn’t own the car he was driving, then crashed into a tree off-camera. Sedevic said the driver was arrested and charged with several traffic misdemeanors as well as criminal trespass of a vehicle and damage to city property (the tree).
Ahahahhaha, you got charged with damage to city property for crashing into a tree. I’m not gonna lie, that’s not going to get you a lot of street cred in the slammer. Actually, nothing about this this story. If I were you I’d lie and say you stabbed someone. PROTIP: Say it was a relative (we’ve all been there). Keep going for the video, but skip at least halfway through if you just want to see the good stuff.
There’s a good chance you’re already well-acquainted with most of the launch titles for the PlayStation 4 by now, but Sony has today made things official and confirmed the complete list of titles that’ll be available on day one. That list totals 17 21 retail and download-only games in all (compared …
So many lonely songs. Won’t you help them?
Spotify celebrated its fifth anniversary this week and, to celebrate, released an infographic highlighting some of the finer moments of the streaming music services career. But for all the impressive facts, one tidbit, buried in the post and confirmed by the Radio and Internet Newsletter, stands out among the rest: roughly 20 percent of Spotify’s song catalog — four million songs — haven't been played a single time.
Now, that may sound high but if you've ever been hunting through the backwaters of Spotify's music catalog, this makes a bit of sense. While top tracks get promotion through the site's Discover tab and featured playlists, the service also hosts millions of peculiar sound effects, meditation tracks, instructional tapes, and songs from obscure, user-submitted artists.
The last time Toshiba had a completely new business ultraportable for us to review was back in November 2011. That was when the Portege Z835 came out and since then, the company’s only refreshed it with new CPUs. Today, though, the outfit announced a proper successor, the Z30, along with two bigger …

The FCC announced Friday that, on January 14, 2014, it will be auctioning off the first major piece of spectrum to hit the market since 2008, the board announced today. The auction will offer up 10 MHz from the H-Block, currently used for PCS service, for a minimum of $ 1.56 billion. Analysts expect Sprint to be the major bidder for the spectrum, as the company has expressed interest in the H block before, but Dish Network already controls spectrum adjacent to the bandwidth and could make a strong play on that basis.
Unlike the FCC’s planned incentive auctions, which will offer broadcasters money in exchange for shifting spectrum over to the wireless industry, this spectrum is considered underused, and the revenue will be directed to the…
J.D. Salinger’s estate will release “at least five” of the author’s unpublished works in a planned sequence starting in 2015, according to the New York Times. The author, whose novel The Catcher in the Rye has become an oft-challenged literary standard for high schoolers, left detailed instructions for the posthumous publishing of his work. One collection of previously unpublished material will reportedly be called The Family Glass, and will focus on the Glass family, which was the subject of Salinger’s 1961 novel Franny and Zooey. Another will be a “retooled version” of the short story The Last and Best of the Peter Pans, an as-yet-unpublished work currently available as a 12-page manuscript at the Princeton University’s Firestone…
Netflix is finally ready to deliver individual profiles for its streaming service, meant to satisfy households with shared accounts by providing everyone their own settings, viewing history and (where available) queue. Profiles are coming to all Netflix regions starting today, but may take a couple of weeks to appear on every account as they roll out gradually. Device support will also take some time to hit everywhere even though most clients (the PS3 is shown above) are ready for profiles today. Two platforms not yet sorted are Android and the Nintendo Wii, where support will arrive “later in the fall” and in mid-August, respectively. Once the new feature is available however, it should be easy for users to access and setup, as we learned from Chief Produce Officer Neil Hunt that focusing on ease of use was the company’s main priority. We’ve also had a chance to check it out ourselves, check after the break for a few more details and quick video preview.
