Microsoft brought Nokia - Wowzers this set the Internet on fire with thousands of nerds looking! I hear many saying this makes no since for Microsoft because it was almost as if nokia was exclusively tied to Microsoft anyway. Some say it was rumors that Nokia was debating jumping to the free android platform on some if you like microsoft put a ring on it! haha sorry
Kitkat - Android new operating system will be called kitkat, its funny people was angry because it was a 4.4 rather than a 5.0 but numbers is just numbers right, as long as it adds functionality and improvements what are you mad at? hmmm are people growing weary of android like they where until IOS 7 ? I guess this shouldn't be a big issue because most people android is different due to samsung and htc clones, but us nexus folk is another monster. Leave a comment if you have time of what you would want to see.
Acer 6 inch - the bigger news is that thing can record 4k . Wow the unfortunate thing is that no one has a 4k tv! So whats the point? Lets put it in the boast category, and that's not it, its only dwarfed by the 6.3 mega from what I know , and a quad core 2.2 i think processor makes a techie drewl. I just never heard of acer phones, i know some people hate acer, including myself until I had the pleasure of using the c7 chromebook. I am typing on it now and I literally smile and make a mental note on how much I love the computer every time I use it and its been 2 months! I guess you can say im excited!
apple invite for sep 10th event - i thought i broke the apple curse now that im google all the way but its something about apple in the press or maybe its the crowd or whatever but the invite prompted me to watch a youtube video as a refresher on what to expect with ios7 and things looked so much more awesome than it did this summer at wwdc. I guess its the hype that gets us, GOD FORGIVE ME! The flyer had colors that seem to relate to the leaked photos of colors that supposedly come with the new cheaper iphone 5c. This isn't much a surprise because of the business since outside us for Tim Cook at the risk of loosing the luxury mystique of apple. Also this the phone most influenced by Johny Ive at his new position of authority and we know he was one of the major player behind the star burst macs!
Verizon buys out vodaphone- this is more of a business story but I guess I preferred personally American own corps like at&t despite hating giving them my business also. I know that is somewhat a old way of thinking especially knowing that in the international market very few corporations are truly or at least purely American. We are in a global economy but I am curious what will Verizon do now without outside influence.
xbox one features- xbox one is finally getting back in the news for good things, like for me personally, the nfl app will include red zone, which is fun to work with especially because the men in my family play a friendly game off office pickem each weak. It also has espn updates. The coolest thing I saw is support for 8 controllers, I don't have an idea off hand why would this be needed but what if madden had controls for a coop 8 captains.(qb, rb, 2 wides/ corners, mlb, de) wow or marvel heroes.
