Samsung has yet to make an official announcement about the followup to its Galaxy S Duos. But, if the company’s online store in India is any indication, it won’t be too long before the second-gen dual-SIM-toting handset becomes available. According to the product page, Samsung’s Galaxy S Duos 2 features a 4-inch, 800 x 480 screen, a “fast and powerful” 1.2GHz processor with 768MB RAM, 4GB of internal storage (expandable up to 64GB) and a 1,500mAh battery. The listing also notes that the Duos 2 — said to be running Android 4.2 — will be sold for 10,999 Indian rupees, which comes out to a little over 175 bucks in the US.

You don’t have to hold onto hope for that truly unlocked iPhone 5s any longer — it’s now available to buy on Apple’s site. To be clear, this version of Apple’s TouchID-imbued flagship comes completely free of any carrier attachment, separating it from the unlocked T-Mobile variant that ships with a Magenta nano-SIM inside. The SIM-free GSM handset’s available in the standard 16GB/32GB/64GB storage and color configurations, so pricing remains the same. But you’ll still need to hitch your data to AT&T or T-Mobile for that fancy phone work in the US.

Yahoo is planning to launch a consumer tech website with the help of long-time NYT columnist David Pogue.
The news comes by way of Brian Stelter, another NYT writer, who reports via Twitter that Pogue announced his new plans in an internal memo at the New York Times.
Longtime NYT columnist David @Pogue “is leaving to help launch a consumer-tech site at Yahoo,” per an internal memo.

David Pogue has also confirmed the plans on his own Twitter, posting that he will be leaving the NYT for Yahoo after 13 years of tech journalism.
Here’s the tweet:
Yes, it’s true: After 13 years, I’m leaving the NY Times to start a new tech site (and much more) at Yahoo. http://t.co/bvDDoMCR5g

So about this consumer tech site… What should we expect? For now, details are incredibly scarce. However, Pogue’s blog post on the matter does drop a few hints.
Actually, “site” doesn’t even cover it. I’ll be writing columns and blog posts each week, of course, and making my goofy videos. But my team and I have much bigger plans, too, for all kinds of online and real-world creations.
Marissa Mayer, Yahoo CEO, has also posted a blog post on the company’s official Tumblr welcoming Pogue to the company. Here’s what she has to say about the addition:
David will lead a major expansion of consumer tech coverage on Yahoo and will publish columns, blog posts and video stories that demystify the gadgets, apps and technology that powers our users’ daily lives.
David Pogue has been in the technology industry longer than the smartphone.
He’s written several books, including seven for the For Dummies series as well as his own Missing Manual series, and has been on a number of television programs including his own series “It’s All Geek To Me” which aired on the Discovery Channel.

Ghostsingles.com is a dating internet site for ghosts. At first I thought it was a dating site for living individuals who wanted to date ghosts, makinged it definitely sadder, but it’s not– the only choice is to sign up for ghost/ghost relationships. So you both have to be dead. And able to utilize a computer system. And, because your fingers cannot actually touch a keyboard, you better hope whoever’s house you’re haunting has speak recognition software that can translate all your f \*\*\* ing BOOOOOOing. “But ghosts aren’t genuine.” They sure aren’t, makings this dating website just like every other dating internet site– a lot of people trying to pretend they’re something that they’re not.
Thanks to TBTMH, who agrees prior to you go searching for love on a ghost dating website, please, try a human one initially. I ‘d rest much better in the evening.
It has been possible to snag an unlocked BlackBerry Q10 or Z10 in the US for a while if you’ve been willing to search around, but you now won’t have to. BlackBerry has quietly begun selling unrestricted GSM variants of the two smartphones through its US site at prices of $ 449 for a Z10 and $ 549 for a Q10. Either device remains LTE-capable, and both should play nicely with AT&T and T-Mobile. The direct sales aren’t likely to attract many converts, but they should help American fans who may have a tough time finding a BlackBerry in stores.
It’s not that much of a stretch of the imagination to believe that Apple might unveil gold, or “space grey,” iPads in the upcoming month(s). That’s why it’s quite interesting that Chinese tech site DoNews has posted photos of a champagne iPad mini 2, complete with TouchID sensor.
Not enough evidence? Sonny Dickson, the same fellow who released the most accurate pre-release photos of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, has today tweeted out his own information regarding the inevitable iPad mini launch, as well as a photo of an unassembled iPad mini 2 in “space grey.”
From the unconfirmed photos, as well as Dickson’s predictions, it seems that there are quite a few similarities between the latest flagship iPhone and the forthcoming iPad mini. As you can see in the images above and below, the next-gen iPad minis will allegedly come in champagne gold and the same space grey we’ve seen with the iPhone 5s.
Dickson also tweeted, without revealing photos, that the iPad mini will be available in silver as well. Furthermore, we may see a TouchID fingerprint scanner on the Apple tablets, also shown in images.
No word yet on whether or not the iPad mini will sport a high-res Retina display.
As with any Apple leak, these images are far from confirmed, but Dickson has a solid track record and the details seem to make sense in terms of Apple’s evolution. After the iPhone 5 came out in the anodized aluminum black “slate”, so too did the iPad mini.
Dickson also mentioned that, according to his sources, the iPad mini 2 would include Apple’s new A7 64-bit chip, the M7 motion coprocessor we’re seeing in the iPhone 5s, along with 1GB of RAM. As for the 9.7-inch iPad 5, Dickson’s sources revealed that it will pack 2GB of RAM under the hood, presumably sporting the same specs as little brother.
Again, we haven’t even received an invitation to the iPad/iPad mini launch event (expected to go down sometime in October), so it’s far too early to tell the legitimacy of these claims and/or photos.
Still, these aren’t too far outside the realm of possibility.
Rakuten, the Japanese e-commerce platform known for its purchases of Kobo and Buy.com, has made another acquisition: international streaming video site Viki. All Things D first reported the news last night, saying that Rakuten and Viki had agreed on $ 200 million for the buyout. Neither company has confirmed that number, but Rakuten CEO Hiroshi Mikitani said that he was indeed purchasing the company. “Our foundation is not only limited to e-commerce, but an intention to strengthen our ecosystem in Japan and worldwide,” he said. “We have been looking into finding a global solution for video.”
Like Hulu, Viki offers streaming TV shows, music, and movies, but its model is based on global reach rather than acquiring high-profile material…
Motorola isn’t the only phone company that’s invested in color customizations for its handsets. Sources familiar with HTC’s plans have revealed to The Verge that the company was prototyping a color customization project for US carrier Sprint. The project involved HTC’s 8XT Windows Phone device, with the idea of allowing customers to customize a range of colors on the handset. We’re told that an HTC Design Studio, planned as a web app, would have served as a method for Sprint customers to order a custom 8XT. The Design Studio included color options for speaker, accents, the two-tone highlights, and personal engraving.
We understand that Sprint and HTC both canceled the project over cost and complexity concerns. HTC adopted the two-tone…
Question by coolio: What is the best site to order ps2 parts that can be shipped to international countries?
Hey guys. I live in India and I need to order a pcb (it’s a thing inside a ps2) for my ps2 slim. So in your opinion what is the most reliable online shop where I can buy ps2 internal components that can be shipped to international countries such as India without any hassle. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thx!
Answer by BiG T
PS2′s are really cheap……..its not worth trying to fix more, you probably would come close to the expense of buying a new one, so i think you should just buy a new one!
