We heard back in January that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE would be headed to mobile carrier US cellular, the device is now available on US cellular and retails for $499.99 for the 16GB version of the tablet.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE comes with VoLTE support and features a 10.1 inch inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and it is powered by a quad core 1.4GHz Exynos 4412 processor.
I like a good dichotomy as much as the next person, which is why I decided to compare the shares of Yahoo with that of Apple over the recent time period.
That’s because in what amounts to a trading-places moment, despite their differences in focus, the pair have had almost polar opposite stock performances of late.
Yahoo, of course, is the famous Internet giant that has been trying to turn itself around for a very long time; Apple is the Silicon Valley phenom that has been wowing the sector for just as much time with endless innovative products.
Typically, that state of affairs has meant that Apple has enjoyed a rocket ship of a ride from Wall Street investors, while Yahoo has suffered. That’s certainly been true on a five-year basis, with Apple up 244 percent and Yahoo down 21 percent.
But in the last six months, it has been another story altogether. In that time, Apple has been sliding to its lowest price since September, down 35 percent. Meanwhile, Yahoo has surged nearly 50 percent in the time frame.
It’s the same story for the past three months, with Apple down 27 percent and Yahoo up 17 percent; and, the last month, with the Cupertino, Calif.-based device maker down 5 percent and the nearby Sunnyvale Internet portal up 11 percent.
It’s a classic story of hope, with investors counting on Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer to turn the tide at the long-suffering company, while they worry about Apple CEO Tim Cook’s ability to keep the hits coming fast and furious.
Perhaps most ironic? That part of Mayer’s appeal is her continued repetition of Yahoo’s mobile aspirations, although the results in that key arena are still negligible and decidedly nascent. Apple, despite the stock fall-off, still handily dominates mobile money-making and on a massive scale, although increasingly competitive Google Android devices continue to gain ground.
Samsung recently announced their new Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet, and now Samsung has posted a video online of their Galaxy Note 8.0 presentation, which you can see below.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 features an 8 inch WXGA display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and it will come with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and also Samsung’s S Pen.
Sony’s flagship Android smartphone, the Sony Xperia Z goes on sale this month, the device comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and now it looks like the Sony Xperia Z Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update will be released in March.
The guys over at Xperia Blog have a screenshot of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean for the Sony Xperia Z, and also some details on the release date, it looks like the update will be rolled out in Europe at the end of March.
The Google Nexus 4 has become a very popular Android smartphone, the handset has been hard to get hold of on Google Play due to more demand than the supply for the device.
Google sells a SIM free version of the Nexus 4 on Google Play, and the mobile carriers have also been selling the device, although it seems more expensive when you take into account the cost of the mobile contract, T-Mobile previously offered the Nexus 4 for $200 with a new 2 year contract
HTC will be introducing a number of new Android smartphones at their press event on the 19th of February, we know about the new HTC M7, and we saw some leaked photos of the HTC M4 earlier today.
Now we have some photos of another Android smartphone that HTC will launch, the HTC 603e, which will feature a 4.3 inch WVGA display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels.
Eight years ago, when I first saw Firefox posted on a message board that I frequented, I thought it was so cool that someone was trying to make a new browser. The post was flamed to death with all sorts of negative comments about how Microsoft’s Internet Explorer was the best there was and Mozilla was never going to be able to compete with Microsoft. Fortunately, Mozilla didn’t see comments like that and decide to throw in the towel. Because of that, the Firefox team at Mozilla are able to celebrate 8 years of development today.
If you take a look back, you can absolutely see how Firefox was directly responsible for some of the major changes in how we use the web today. Firefox made a name for itself by being something that was so much better than Internet Explorer at the time that the only reason IE was used was to install Firefox. The team has even gone so far recently as to poke fun back at Internet Explorer 10‘s release. The browser has grown with the intention of delivering a web experience that “put people first” as they put it. Now, 8 years later, Firefox has absolutely become a staple in the web ecosystem.
Firefox now exists on Windows, it’s a default browser in many versions of Linux, OSX, and now Android as well. On each platform they support, Mozilla strives to offer the open web standards and practices that the company has dedicated themselves to from the beginning. With a global browser market share that hovers just behind Internet Explorer by a few percent, it’s not hard to imagine that Firefox will be around for a long time. Happy Birthday Firefox!
