HTC One (M8) is getting Android 7.0 Nougat update at T-Mobile

In an unexpected turn of events, T-Mobile announced it has finished testing Android 7.0 Nougat for the HTC One (M8), and the update should now be available for download.

We’re quite surprised to see that a three-year-old phone is still getting a major software update such as Android 7.0 Nougat. If this isn’t truly a mistake made by T-Mobile, it’s remarkable that HTC has decided to continue to support its One (M8), a smartphone that was launched back in March 2014.

It’s worth noting that T-Mobile and a few other carriers in the United States pushed Android …


Opera Mini's latest update makes download links easier to access

Opera is determined to beef up its Android browser in order to compete with the likes of Google and Samsung. The latest update for Opera Mini brings a brand new feature that is not available on any other mobile browsers that we know of.

In fact, it’s more of a tool rather than a new feature. Opera is working on an algorithm that will allow its Android browser to provide users with a direct link to whatever they wish to download from certain websites.

We all know that download sites hide their content under piles of ads, so you always have to click one more time just to get to the …

Deal: Samsung Gear IconX's price slashed by 25% for a limited time only

Samsung Gear IconX wireless earbuds have been launched in the United States months before Apple’s AirPods, but they were slightly more expensive. Well, not anymore, as Samsung is now running a deal on the Gear IconX, which allows customers to purchase a pair of the wireless buds for just $149.99.

Although this isn’t the lowest price for which you could get the Gear IconX, it’s most certainly the last promo you’ll get before the Galaxy S8 goes official. According to Samsung, for a limited time, customers can buy the Gear IconX wireless buds for 25% off through its …

Fantastic Apple peel 520 – Change iPod Touch to iPhone in a Moment

Apple peel 520 is a product that supposedly gives the iPod touch cellular functions. Since the iPod touch and the iPhone are very similar in dimensions and in software, there is a great possibility this can be used for the iPhone.

However, this fantastic assemble has its own advantages and disadvantages. I’d love to be able to seek some more value out of my 1st Gen iPod Touch if it were possible… Still this is the first and the only apple device I own, and i still won’t upgrade till it’s broke for good. Another and which also the biggest advantage is it can save you a lot of money for those who love iphone so much but are terrified by the sight of price. Ipod touch usually starts at 229, and the apple peel 520 sold at PickEgg.com only $109 …it maybe the lowest price all over the world and no need to pay deliver charge.

If you want to see the fantastic creation, you need to buy it immediately and I think there would not be a day when it was $60. You may as well get lucky on PickEgg for an apple peel 520 at that point.

Maybe the greatest reason for this even exists is because the designer either couldnt afford an iphone or did not want to pay as much. Getting a much cheaper touch and adding this device he created, gave him the functionality of the iphone at a lower cost. At last i heard he was trying to find out if his product was legal.

The difference is this way you can actually make calls” is what I would’ve said if I was an uneducated jackass.

There are also disadvantages: the iPod with the Peel currently has a problem with the “death grip” and in general, it wasn’t engineered optimally for calling. If this product works as advertised, then you can use this instead of a bumper to get rid of the “death grip” problem and at the same time possibly improve the reception on your ipod. For new people and if you have enough money, choosing between the iPod touch + this vs the iPhone 4, I would recommend the iPhone 4 since it is not dependent on an accessory whose functionality seems pretty shady to me. But to somebody else, it like it’s targeting preteens etc who already have an iPT instead of getting a new phone.

Another problem I see is there is no earpiece. Are all calls going to go over speakerphone or Bluetooth? No like a good idea, but I need an earpiece. That’s one reason I’m not getting a Samsung Galaxy Tab. Yeah sure, I might look like a who knows what with a 7 inch “Tab” next to my head but I don’t care. I hate BT headsets and I can’t have people hearing my conversations. I hardly make calls as it is but when I do I need an earpiece. So close too.

In generally, to most of the people who know this device, still sticking it to Apple. Now you don’t have to buy the wallet-dissolving iPhone.

Also, to most of the people, who know Apple Peel 520 and take quick visit to the website with this product for sale. And this did nothing to allay our lingering suspicions — in through and through-it appeared to be hastily-cobbled cash– but still, sorely tempted our wallet for the prospect of an iPod touch case with cellular capabilities. The Peel520.net may give you siren call to advise you attempting a purchase, but after make serious cooperation. Also the Google tells us their owners of the apple peel 520 are one and the same with PickEgg, so if you bought one of those sim-cutting devices and got your product as promised, PickEgg suppose you’re liable to get a better deal. But if you have qualms, well — wait for Go Solar to formally bring the product to market, or else steer clear.

'Westworld' boss reveals huge moment you probably missed in the Season 1 finale

TwitterFacebook

Westworld won’t be back on our screens until 2018 — so it’s no surprise that the spoiler-averse showrunners, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, kept a lid on any details about Season 2 at the show’s PaleyFest panel on Saturday night.

That didn’t stop fans or the intrepid moderator from trying, of course: They grilled Nolan on everything from whether we’ll see other theme parks in Season 2, like the previously teased Samurai World (“That’d be cool, wouldn’t it?” Nolan coyly deflected), to whether Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) shot park creator Ford (Anthony Hopkins) in the Season 1 finale because she had developed her own consciousness, or simply because Arnold (Jeffrey Wright) had programmed her to. (“Isn’t it more fun to just guess?” Nolan teased.) Read more…

6 things about adulthood that 'Kenan & Kel' did not adequately prepare me for

TwitterFacebook

If you were raised in the ’90s, it’s not that far of a reach to say that television played a sizable role in your upbringing. Luckily for us ’90s kids, we just happened to grow up with some of the best television in recent memory and everything seemed to have a specific life lesson embedded into its content. 

For instance, Kenan & Kel was packed with life lessons. Whether it was “don’t do drugs” or “Kel loves orange soda (LOL),” each episode seemed to hammer home a point about life. But there are just some things that, alas, it was unable to teach us.

Zombie Javier Bardem is NOT happy in the new 'Pirates' trailer

TwitterFacebook

Here’s a fun bit of triviaPirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is actually the second longest title in the series. It falls one short of the 10-word mouthful that was Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

Javier Bardem is an angry ghost pirate in Disney’s next Pirates adventure. If you’re looking for a reason to go — any reason at all — there it is. The latest trailer peers into some of the backstory that turned Bardem’s Captain Armando Salazar into a Jack Sparrow hater; believe it or not, it wasn’t just Johnny Depp’s drunken monkey antics.

Founded in 1762, the small city of Hagerstown, Maryland sits just south of the Mason-Dixon line and changed hands several times during the Civil War.

In October 1937, Farm Security Administration photographer Arthur Rothstein, in the course of his assignments covering everyday life across the country, passed through

He paused there for an afternoon, strolling the streets of the humble town, documenting the residents milling about on the main thoroughfare, chatting, shopping and attending an auction.

These scientists turned spinach leaves into beating heart tissue

TwitterFacebook

Popeye was fond of cramming cans of spinach to beef up his cartoon biceps. Now scientists say the leafy green really could help build a real-world muscle, only this time, it’s the human heart.

A team of U.S. researchers found a way to use the veins of the spinach leaf to build a miniature version of a beating heart muscle.

Their discoveries offer a potential solution a major challenge confronting biomedical engineers: how to repair and regenerate damaged organs and tissues. 

If proven to work, scientists could use the spinach treatment to grow layers of healthy heart muscle to treat heart attack patients, the group said in a proof-of-concept study published this month in the journal Biomaterials. Read more…
