The video promises that "The Next Incredible Thing" is coming and hints that it will be something very thin. To be clear, we aren't even sure that this device will be Android related, but there is a good chance it might so we decided to share it with you guys.

What do you think it will be?

Slightly Off Topic: Kids Reactions to Old Computer Are Hilarious and Priceless

May 27, 2014 - 10:29 AM - by dgstorm

The above video is slightly off topic, but we do get to see a smartphone compared to a classic Apple II home desktop computer from the 70's, so that's enough of a window to be relevant. Regardless, this may just be the funniest thing you see all day (if not all week). A group of various aged young kids are introduced to the old computer and their mind is completely blown by the archaic nature of the device.

Hey, at least one of them finds it better than Flappy Birds...

Enjoy!

Time to Change Some Passwords Again: eBay Hacked

May 21, 2014 - 9:09 AM - by dgstorm

The bad guys are really becoming a "pita"! Another high profile company was just hacked, so it's time to change your passwords again. This time eBay was the victim of the "Black Hats." They just issued a press statement detailing their security breach. The gist of it was this,

[C]hanging passwords is a best practice, and will help enhance security for eBay users.
No kidding?!? Why is it becoming so difficult for these companies to keep their databases secure?

Here's a link to the rest of their statement on the matter: eBay Inc. To Ask eBay Users To Change Passwords | ebay inc

Off Topic News: New Interstellar Trailer Hits the Web Showing More Details

May 16, 2014 - 2:40 PM - by dgstorm

The newest trailer for director Chris Nolan's upcoming sci-fi movie, Interstellar, just hit the web. It's obviously not Android related at all, but it gave me chills watching it, so I simply had to share it. What is most intriguing about the film is that it takes the old formula of needing to "save the world" and targets it much closer to reality than most movies do.

Setting aside politics, there are a great many smart people in the world predicting that the real problems we will face in the middle/later part of the 21st century will be running out of the resources of water and food instead of oil and money. This movie drives home that very distinct possibility, and brings with it the vibe of all humans striving together for the greater good. Wouldn't that be a thing to see?

Intel Powered Asus Memo Pad 7 Leaks

May 13, 2014 - 2:24 AM - by Jeffrey

Asus and Intel seem to be forming a new partnership, an Asus tablet powered by Intel Bay Trail processor has leaked. The new tablet is called Asus Memo Pad 7 (ME176C or ME176CX) and no its not the Nexus 7. The Asus MeMo Pad 7 weighs 295 grams and is 9.6 mm thick and trust me we just fell in love with the design.

Asus MeMo Pad 7 Specifications

Intel Atom Z3745 Bay Trail T SoC
7 inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels
1GB of DDR3 RAM
8GB or 16GB of internal memory
microSD card slot
2 megapixel front camera
5.0 megapixel rear camera
Wi-Fi
Bluetooth 4.0
GPS
Android 4.4.2 KitKat with ZenUI
3910mAh battery



As you can see the rear camera has no flash so dont expect to use it for pictures in the dark. As for the release date expect the Asus MeMo Pad 7 to be announced at Computex 2014 with a selling price of around 149 Euros which is roughly $200.

Asus Padfone X Commercial Pushes the Boundaries on Terrible to New Heights

May 07, 2014 - 2:15 PM - by dgstorm

Asus makes great products, but they need to fire AT&T from ever doing marketing for them again. The above AT&T Padfone X video commercial is so utterly lame, the other guys in the office thought I had gone crazy from laughing so hard. This commercial wants us to believe that girls are stupid and the Padfone X will help you score with them in the lamest way possible... It apparently thinks we are all stupid enough to believe something so trite and sexist.

I haven't seen anything so atrocious and ridiculous since LG's bizarre and disgusting G Flex ad, which you can find here: LG Succeeds at Making the Most Disturbing and Disgusting G Flex Commercial Ever. [*I just noticed that the gross LG G Flex video has been removed. For those who have not seen it, count yourself lucky!]

While the LG takes the crown in grossing you out, this new commercial from Asus and AT&T might be worse because it actually takes itself seriously. At least the LG ad seems to be going for a macabre humor angle and makes a big impact.

This ad is so insulting it deserves the dreaded "Double Facepalm!"

Despite Results, Samsung Plans to Appeal Court Decision in Apple v. Samsung

May 06, 2014 - 10:40 AM - by dgstorm

Could this be one of the moments when Samsung's lawyers don't know when to walk away from the poker table? Just yesterday we reported that the Apple vs. Samsung patent dispute retrial concluded last Friday. Although technically Apple won the lawsuit, the final damages awarded of $120 Million were so paltry compared to the previous victory from the first trial, that it basically amounted to an indirect win for Samsung. In fact, it is likely that Apple's legal costs will come close to that $120 Million figure.

Despite this, Samsung is planning to proceed with another appeal. Apparently, the reason why Samsung won't remain satisfied with the results is a matter of principle. According to Samsung's legal team, Apple purposefully omitted "real world evidence" that would have exonerated Samsung completely. Here's a quote from John Quinn, a lawyer on Samsung's legal team.

"Of course we're pleased that the jury awarded Apple 6 percent of what they were asking for. But even that can't stand, because Apple kept out all the real world evidence and didn't produce anything to substitute for it, so you have a verdict that's unsupported by evidence and that's just one of its problems."
While it's easy to see why Samsung might want to keep pursuing this to achieve what it believes would be "real justice," it's hard not to see the bigger picture and wonder why they don't just let it go and move on. Plus, the damage award is so small overall that Samsung wouldn't even blink paying such a relatively minuscule price.

What do you think? Should Samsung quit while they are "basically even," or is it important to keep fighting until Sammy gets its perceived justice? The Kenny Rogers song, The Gambler comes to mind...
