Microsoft Will Acquire SwiftKey; Android & iOS Versions to Continue

Feb 03, 2016 - 12:39 PM - by dgstorm

In a surprise move, Microsoft has come from out of nowhere and purchased SwiftKey, the popular mobile keyboard replacement app that is found on both Android and iOS. The news was announced on SwiftKey's blog this morning, and doesn't share too many details regarding the deal.

The good news for some is that Microsoft will continue to develop the Android and iOS versions of SwiftKey (at least for the foreseeable future). Here's a quick quote from the founders of SwiftKey,

"Our number one focus has always been to build the best possible products for our users. This will not change. Our apps will continue to be available on Android and iOS, for free. We are as committed as ever to improving them in new and innovative ways.

We owe a lot to the invaluable input of our users, including our 130,000-strong VIP community and the many thousands of others who have been with us since the start.Their energy, honest feedback and eagerness to share our products have been the driving force behind our growth."

What do you think of this sudden development from the most popular mobile keyboard replacement company?

Asus ZenFone Zoom Coming to US in February for $399

Jan 05, 2016 - 1:43 PM - by dgstorm

Even though this isn't Transformer news, it is hot Asus news from CES 2016, so we thought it worth sharing. Enjoy!

It's CES 2016 this week, and you can expect a slew of new devices revealed. Of course, it would be impossible for us to cover all of them, so we will focus on just some of the hottest products in the mobile world. The first one we want to share today is a new Asus smartphone. It's called the ZenFone Zoom and its "claim to fame" is a massive camera lens on the back and the resultant enhanced capabilities that come with that. The phone was actually first announced at CES 2015 (last year), but it didn't come to market until this year.

The Asus ZenFone Zoom is slated to hit US stores in February of 2016 with a relatively affordable price of just $399. The camera capabilities are obviously the biggest feature and they include a 13 megapixel camera with laser autofocus and 3x optical zoom. Impressive for all of the shutterbugs out there!

Here's a breakdown of all of its specs:
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Intel Atom Z3590 Processor 2.5GHz
  • 4GB RAM, 64GB Storage w/ microSD card support up to 128GB
  • 5.5 FHD IPS (19201080) display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4
  • 3,000 mAh battery (non-removable)
  • 13MP Camera with f/2.7-f/4.8, dual flash, laser auto-focus with 3x Optical Zoom and Optical Image Stabilization
  • Single SIM with 2G/3G/4G support
  • Dimensions: 158.9 x 78.84 x 5 ~ 11.95mm
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, BT 4.0, and NFC

Sound off and let us know what you think. Is this just a gimmick device, or does it fill a legitimate niche in the market?
