So it turns out you can't stake a claim to "a rectangle with rounded corners" 
Apple's $930m win against Samsung in 2012 faces a slash of more than 40-percent, after an appeals court ruled that the things like rectangles with rounded

When +Chevrolet asks if you want to try out its new 2016 Camaro on the track, and throws the keys to engineering prototypes at you, you don't say no.

Don’t underestimate the 2016 Camaro, or indeed how important it is. The chunky Transformers styling may border on the caricature from some angles, but the

Can you succeed in the luxury SUV space without a huge engine and a German brand? +Volvo Cars says yes, and having spent some time with the handsome XC90 this week, I'm inclined to agree.

This isn't your normal SUV...

#cars #tech #volvo 
Nordic noir has invaded our television and our bookshelves, and now Volvo wants to do the same for luxury SUVs with the all-new 2016 XC90. As many companies,

I don't roll out the Doctor Who comparisons for just any old gadget.

Is a bigger camera necessarily better? Or, put a different way, does a big sensor need to have a big body wrapped around it? Samsung would argue no, and the

Turns out, adding eye-tracking to #virtualreality  makes a whole lot of difference to the experience.

Me, I'd love to see this is something like Microsoft #HoloLens  
You might not realize virtual reality has an owl problem, but it does. Turn your head while wearing most VR headsets, and the scene you see will move

Want a Jibo home robot? Pre-orders have re-opened for the cute l'il guy.
Multitasking home robot Jibo returns to the pre-order business after its initial funding is accomplished many times over. What you're seeing here is the talking

Writer, tech-lover & glasses-wearing cynic
Introduction
Tech writer who fell into online journalism by mistake. Loves coffee, gadgets, and sarcasm.

Android and Apple-using, Windows Phone apologizing, webOS-reminsicing multi-platform lover who'd rather use the tools that work best for the job than cling to a single brand for loyalty's sake. Current obsession is augmented/mediated reality and wearables, along with home automation, robotics, and the comically named "internet of things". Sucker for slick hardware with flashing lights and buttons.

Google+ is swell for its conversation potential and the generally high quality of discussion over here. Expect the occasional food post, funny video, and (passive) enjoyment of whimsical cat photos.
