But now, HTC has come out and denied that the smartwatch which appears in the video is not a real product.
We have literally no idea how Amazon’s Prime Music is doing commercially, but it did recently add “hundreds of thousands of songs” and hundreds of playlists to the service.
The expanded availability of music is good for its current users, which can listen through their smartphones, computers, and Amazon’s cloud player.
If you’ve got a semi-new HTC phone, you might have noticed that HTC has started adding key Sense 6 apps to the Play Store so that it can roll out updates to users much easier than the usual OTA update process.
Today, HTC’s clock app for Sense 6 has appeared in the Play Store. This means that in the future, any software improvements to the clock app will be handled through the Play Store.
We already know that Google has been working for a while now on completely migrating the functions of Google Voice into Hangouts, so that it can merge most of its communication apps into one (besides Gmail).
We’re getting closer to that reality now, as Google has added support for making phone calls via Hangouts from the Google Voice website — and you don’t even need Google+.
We knew Foursquare was planning on spinning off its check-in feature to Swarm, a companion application to the location discovery app. That change is officially happening tomorrow, along with some other new changes and features to Foursquare, one of which is a brand new logo. » Read the rest
In addition to getting new ad extensions, Google Maps is getting a brand new Explore feature that’s going to make finding new locations and points of interest even easier.
Tapping the new Explore button at the bottom of Google Maps opens up a pane that displays different kinds of places to visit in your general location. After confirming your location, you can specify how close you’d like recommendations to be (within 10 minutes walking distance or 20 minutes driving distance, for example) and what time of day you’re interested in going, and Google populates the results based on that information. This keeps the feature from suggesting you head to a breakfast spot at 8 at night, or from recommending driving locations when you’re out and about on foot for the day. » Read the rest

Samsung recently released a commercial telling iPhone fans to stop waiting for a bigger iPhone, and apparently Conan O’Brien saw it as well, and is continuing the razzing.
It is widely expected that Apple will offer a bigger 4.7-inch display on the upcoming iPhone 6. In yesterday’s opening monologue, Conan said the new iPhone 6 will be called, “Last year’s Samsung Galaxy.” Actually if you think about it, he should have called it the “2012 Samsung Galaxy” since that phone had a 4.8-inch display, which is much closer to the rumored 4.7-inch display that the iPhone 6 will sport.
If you want to check out the video, head on past the break. It starts at about 1:33 in.
After several months of rumors regarding a Samsung premium phone, we finally have the best pictures yet of the device. No it’s not the Galaxy S 5 Prime, nor is is the Galaxy F. It’s the Galaxy Alpha. This phone will feature metal, but before you get too excited, it’s only going to be partially metal. It appears they have opted for the faux leather back along with aluminum sides.
After being pirated prior to its official release, Modern Combat 5: Blackout is now available in the Play Store. It was originally scheduled for a July 24 release. Gameloft must have decided that it was not necessary to wait any longer for a game that was being pirated and gaining attention for the wrong reason. For those of you who are unaware, the Modern Combat series is a first person shooter that really pushes boundaries in terms of mobile gaming. The graphics and gameplay are widely applauded and that is what has Gameloft to keep making new installments.
