"This also means the owner of that phone is likely in a meeting right now and about to get fired."

Tags: #WindowsPhone #Microsoft  
For weeks now we have been filling in the news regarding the Microsoft's Talkman and Cityman Lumia phones due later this fall. Possibly going by the names Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL these phones should represent the next-generation of high-end devices for the struggling mobile maker. This morning, numerous photos of the Lumia 950 XL aka Cityman prototype have appeared online in the...

Woah. It's not Netflix, it's Amazon.

Yeah, I was pretty shocked about that too.  I have both though, so it doesn't really affect me.  This is definitely the first time I've felt that Amazon really proved that they're serious about their service.

This confirms the rumors of the next generation of Lumia phones that we've been hearing.

Tags: #WindowsPhone  
Over the last few weeks, rumors of Microsoft's upcoming flagship Windows Phones have been circulating the internet. Obviously many of these rumors contain half-truths or are just plain false. The referenced phones are codenamed Cityman and Talkman, and it is time to set the record straight on their specifications and features. The first accurate reporting of Cityman and Talkman go back...

You know politicians are hiding something when they get caught contradicting themselves.

In just 26 seconds, Obama's own top spokesman completely nukes the administration's nuclear weapons deal with Iran.

"Samsung Display is reportedly working with other industry leaders to develop an 11K screen with a mind-boggling (to say nothing of eye-boggling) pixel density of around 2250ppi."
Quad HD not high-res enough for you? 4K not likely to keep you satisfied for long? Samsung's working to produce an 11K mobile display later this decade.

"Microsoft has now patented a new technique which captures biometric information such as finger position, finger length, angle between fingers and more to provide authentication information with a simple gesture and to make sure it is actually you making the unlock request."

Unlocking your device using gestures is not new at all with Apple's simple Swipe to Unlock and the Pattern Unlock common on Android handsets. They however do not bring much security, especially whe...

"See NAND works by shifting single electrons to either side of a "floating gate" to change from a 1 to a 0 and back again. The problem is that this process prevents users from changing the state just one memory cell -- you have to wipe rewrite an entire block of cells simultaneously. But by addressing each cell individually, Intel reports that the new chip can perform 1000 times faster than conventional NAND"
Intel and Micron team up to build the first new class of memory since 1989. It's 10 times more dense, 100 times more robust and 1000 times faster than conventional NAND flash.

Pinball machines on a train?

Tags: #Pinball #Trains #PinballPendolino  
Date: 21st July 2015. It's not something most of us have cause to consider, but back in the '60s and '70s when train companies around the world were looking to run ever-faster services, the one thing holding them back wasn't the power or efficiency of the locomotives. It was the track.

Holy shit, this is amazing!  I would love to jump on this train!  If you pay extra to get to this train car though, I wonder if you still have to pay for the games.  Not that it would cost that much, since it's only 45 minutes.

Anyone else disappointed with Amazon's Prime Day?

Disgruntled shoppers took to Twitter to lodge complaints under the hashtag #primedayfail while staring down sales of granny panties, shoe horns, and 55-gallon drums of lube.

"Last week we announced a focusing on our Lumia lineup, but let me be clear: soon you will see premium new Lumias designed for Windows 10."

Windows Phone sales would be a lot more if Microsoft didn't keep shooting themselves in the foot.

Tags: #Microsoft #WindowsPhone  
Just in case there was any doubt that Microsoft plans to continue making Lumia smartphones, the head of the company's Windows and devices division, Terry Myerson, confirmed that it still plans to launch new premium Lumia smartphones in the near future. Myerson made this statement as part of Microsoft's first Worldwide Partner Conference Keynote address in Orlando: "Last week we...

"The Wand Company wasn’t content merely to kick out a slightly refined version of the communicator toys we’ve seen for years; rather, building on the reproduction expertise it demonstrated with its earlier phaser remote control, it’s made the Star Trek Bluetooth Communicator a fully-fledged, museum-quality replica."

By now you've heard of The Wand Company's new Star Trek Bluetooth Communicator. What you don't know is just how accurate this replica's really going to be.

Story
Introduction
I'm cynical. I'm also a bit of a Microsoft fanboi, but I'm more than ready to admit their short comings. Talking about other technology is fun as well.

I'm also kind of a smart ass, but nothing I say is meant to be taken too seriously. Feel free to disagree or point out where I'm wrong.

If you like reading the stuff I'm interested in (but I don't understand why) feel free to add me. I'm not really looking for numbers, just good conversations.
