Earlier today, Yahoo sent press invites to a “product-related” event in New York City Monday afternoon and there are already two separate rumors about the company’s plans. The first, from Bloomberg, concerns the event specifically and cites a “person familiar with the matter” reporting we’ll hear about new updates for Yahoo’s once-mighty Flickr photo service. The second is from AllThingsD, which has upgraded rumors of a Tumblr purchase from possible to possibly imminent, saying the company’s board will meet to decide whether it will make a $ 1.1 billion all-cash offer for the site. That announcement is also penciled in for the 20th, but whatever actually goes down you can be sure we’ll have the details as they’re unveiled at 4:30PM ET.

While the world waits to discover the facts about Microsoft’s following videogame console, new reports have actually popped up suggesting exactly what its strategies to go all-in on the Xbox-as-media center idea require. According to The Verge, multiple unnamed sources recommend the strategy is to include an HDMI passthrough and guide overlay, like the method utilized by Google TELEVISION. There’s no word on any possible IR blaster (or IR GamePad, Wii U-style) integration, but thanks to Microsoft’s collaborations with cable television suppliers, it’s trying to offer integration that goes a “action further” than exactly what we have actually seen up until now. That includes Kinect control, with next generation hardware that can acknowledge when viewers have turned their heads away and pause video instantly, with added functions presenting after launch. There’s no verification of controversial always-on requirements for gaming, however it will apparently have to be gone to for streaming (of course) and controlling inbound TELEVISION signals.
Microsoft had fantastic success with a progressing media method to its console company with the Xbox 360– apps and initial content are in, with Mediaroom and Media Center pushed to the side– and even if these rumors are real, we wouldn’t be shocked if what exists in a couple of years ends up altering just as much. Still, offered the (absence of) feedback to Google’s overlays and motion control incorporated by Samsung, LG and others, it will be intriguing to see if a comparable approach affixeded to an Xbox discovers various outcomes.

Now that Sony, LG, HTC, and Samsung have all pulled back the curtains on their flagship Android smartphones, the rumor mill can churn with renewed focus on yet another nebulous device — Motorola’s secretive X Phone.
Or rather, X Phones. According to Android And Me’s Taylor Wimberly, X Phone isn’t going to be a product name so much as it is a banner that multiple phones will fly under, and his sources assert that we’ve already seen the first of those devices in wild.
(I think it goes without saying that you should take all this information with a hefty grain of salt.)
The supposed culprit was captured on film earlier this week by the noted team at Tinhte, the Vietnamese site that thrives on getting their hands on unreleased gadgets well before the rest of us do. It was a fairly unassuming device — it bears a mild resemblance to the Galaxy Nexus when viewed dead-on, and sports a cleaner, rounded design that doesn’t quite jibe with many of Motorola’s recent angular design efforts.
What’s more, its modest spec sheet prompted many (myself included) to dismiss its odds of being the fabled X Phone. To wit: it sports one of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro systems-on-a-chip, 2GB of RAM, a 4.65-inch display, and a 2,200 mAh battery. In fairness, that’s not a shabby device at all. That’s essentially what the Nexus 4 is working with, but it just didn’t seem flashy enough to be what Motorola and Google have been working on all this time.
But if this new report holds true, that lack of next-gen horsepower could be because Google intends to sell this particular X Phone dirt cheap sans contract — $ 199 or so.
Curiously, the original video of the device was yanked from YouTube, and the original post on Tinhte seems to have disappeared as well. That’s far from a confirmation that Tinhte has ruffled some major feathers, but it’s something to consider.
Now to call this whole thing a little kooky would be putting it very mildly, but such an approach wouldn’t exactly come out of left field. One could look at the Nexus 4′s launch as a grand experiment of sorts, meant to see if the consuming public would be open to purchasing unsubsidized hardware directly from the people making it. The answer, clearly, is yes. The Nexus 4 isn’t exactly a mass-market success but demand for the device and its reasonably low price tag led to some notable woes for people trying to purchase the thing early on.
Moreover, the more limited launch of a high-end device like the Nexus 4 could help Google gauge their ability to fulfill device demand in markets across the globe. Now that Google has more or less figured out what needs to happen to keep a global device rollout from going immediately south, it’s arguably better prepared to push out a solid phone at a crazy low price point. Only time will tell whether or not Google and Motorola truly plan to inundate the world with a horde of cheap X Phones, but with I/O on the horizon I imagine it won’t be long before the next chapter of the X Phone saga begins to unfold.

Quiet, mid-cycle element upgrades are a thing with Apple, and they’re often worth keeping an eye out for. The iPad 2 got a chip upgrade in 2012, for instance, which substantially extended its battery life using a 32nm A5 SoC rather of a 45nm one. Well, much as anticipated, an extremely similar processor upgrade has just pertained to the Apple TELEVISION. MacRumors popped open the most recent variation, known as “AppleTV3,2“, and found excellent evidence of an additional die shrink: the main block of silicon is just 6 mm x 6 mm, which ares smaller than the 8 mm x 8 mm chip in the most recent iPad 2. This undoubtedly causes speculation that Apple has shifted to a 28nm fabrication process, possibly snubbing Samsung’s 32nm foundries, however we ‘d need a proper silicon-level analysis to be specific. In the meantime, though, we ‘d suspect that this update could not be worth hunting to the degree that the new iPad 2 was– the level of shrinking here does not seem enough to have a significant effect on power draw, and in any case that’s less of a concern for a gadget that’s fed from the wall.

German luxury brand Loewe experienced a roller coaster day. A trader commented that “ Apple supposedly wishes to bid 4 euros a share for Loewe, ” which sent out Loewe shares up as much as 44.5 percent to 3.93 compared with yesterday ’ s closing rate of 2.72. The German stock exchange closed today with Loewe shares trading at 3.35, representing a one-day rise of 23.16 percent. In Could 2012, rumors emerged on AppleInsider that the company was interested in the German TV producer. Although Loewe rejected the report and Apple declined to comment, a buyout wouldn ’ t be a big danger for Apple. Loewe ’ s market capitalization is around $ 58.6 million (EUR43.58 million). Yet, Apple would need to entice significant investors. Sharp now owns 28.8 percent of shares, Loewe ’ s executives 14 percent and
hard-drive manufacturer LaCie 11.2 percent. The German company reported $ 39 million (EUR29 million) in losses in 2012. Selling the company to Apple or anyone else would be a method to exit the tedious luxury TELEVISION market. The company is currently trying to cut 1,000 jobs, too, in order to lower costs. Television Set remain Loewe ’ s core item, but the business now manufactures Blu-ray players, DVD recorders, hard-disk recorders, multiroom systems, speakers and shelfs. For Apple, Loewe could possibly represent an additional small strategic acquisition. Yesterday, Tim Cook stated that the company closes a deal every other month. However analysts and traders may know too far into the rumors, which were alone responsible for Loewe ’ s share rise today. It continues to be to be seen whether those experts are too excited by Apple ’ s rumored TELEVISION plans or whether they are in fact hearing talks in between the two business.

Lenovo turned a few heads last week when its CFO mentioned RIM as a possible acquisition target or partner, and with many eyes peering in its direction, the company’s felt the need to clarify its relationship with the BlackBerry maker. An English-language statement — courtesy of The Next Web — says Wong Wai Ming was “speaking broadly about M&A strategy,” and only included RIM in this comment as the interviewer asked about Lenovo’s interest in the company specifically. While it doesn’t provide any more fuel for the speculation fire, there’s no denial here, and it’s worth remembering that Wong mentioned the two have talked about potential arrangements, according to the original Bloomberg report. Damage limitation statement deployed, we doubt Lenovo will be bringing this up again unless anything formal happens. In the meantime, RIM’s got slightly more immediate matters to concern itself with.

Apple CEO Tim Cook took some time on the company ’ s earnings phone today to discuss a specific rumor, which is an extreme strangeness for Apple ’ s top-tier executives. He prefaced it by saying he doesn ’ t wish to make a practice of dealing with reports, however went on to comment on current reports that iPad and iPhone part order volumes have been cut owing to weak demand. “ I understand there ’ s been great deals of reports about order cuts and so forth, ” he said. “ I would suggest it ’ s great to question the precision of any kind of rumor about develop strategies, as well as if
a particular information point were precise, it would be impossible to interpret that records point for what it implies for our total business. ” Cook ended his discussion of the problem by outlining that a “ solitary data point is not a great proxy for exactly what ’ s going on. ” The intent was clearly to defuse the capability of supply chain reports to affect expert outlooks on the company and consequently stock price, because the recent episode of these kinds of stories originating from providers are most likely a key part of recent stock rate volatility.

If you ’ ve been attempting to obtain your hands on a Nexus 4 (without signing an agreement, anyhow) then these past few weeks have probably been some fairly iffy ones. Even now they ’ re not available from the Google Play store, however LG France Communications Director Cathy Robin wishes to correct things out a bit — according to a meeting with her in Challenges. fr, LG remains devoted to the Nexus 4 and pegs some of the supply problems on Google ’ s suspicious foresight.
The full (and mildly kooky) Google translation can be found here for you non-francophone types, however the essence of Cathy ’ s argument is that it ’ s all a case of misallocated resources. Google obviously overestimated demand for Nexus Fours in some nations, taken too lightly need in others (she declares that strong projections for UK and German need caused a scarcity in France), and normally made some curious telephone calls when it involved where the lion ’ s share of Nexus Fours must wind up.
Strangely enough, Dan Cobley, Google UK ’ s Managing Supervisor stated in an apology on Google + in December that “ materials from the supplier are limited, and our interaction has been flawed, ” so it appears that Google is unwilling to shoulder the blame on their own. Gotta marvel how/if Google will react now that another LG representative has called them out (even if she states that she ’ s not outright criticizing Google).
In any case, she also rapidly minimized the (fairly damned silly) concept that LG would be waning production of the Nexus 4 just a few months after the device was formally launched to the world. If anything, production momentum is anticipated to choose up as we head into February, though there ’ s no informing exactly what sort of result Mobile World Congress (and its great deal of phone announcements) can mean for LG ’ s production priorities going forward. But is it all late?
It ’ s obvious that the Nexus 4 was made using LG ’ s one-time crown jewel the Optimus G as a base, however the Korean company is supposedly working on a successor to the gadget that (surprise surprise) should outclass the initial in a number of means. Rumors of a new Optimus with a 5-inch 1080p display have actually gotten a lot of steam thanks to reports from Korea ’ s MK Business Information, and a Might 2013 launch window has been bandied willing to choose them.
On the other hand, those rumors dovetail rather nicely with murmurs of brand-new LG Nexus hardware — particularly a Nexus 5 smartphone and a Nexus 7.7 tablet — that remain to make the rounds thanks to a post from Korean online forum Ruliweb. The purported spec sheets are absolutely nothing to sneeze at (both are said to sport the newly-announced Tegra 4 chipsets from NVIDIA, amongst other things), and the rumor du jour states that they ’ ll see the light of day at Google I/O in (dun dun dun!) Could 2013.
Is it feasible that Google and LG are preparing to push out much more equipment together on such brief notice? Sure — LG USA CMO James Fisher said at CES that the Nexus 4 was the first in the business ’ s “ expanding collaboration ” with Google after all, but that by itself shouldn ’ t be taken as gospel. Still, if the timing for both of these events pan out the means the rumors recommend, we might be looking at some fresh brand-new Nexus gadgets much quicker than expected, and the Nexus 4 may wind up an unintended casualty of change.
