HTC One (M8) Ace render with ‘beautiful curves’ leaks


Yesterday, HTC teased something with beautiful curves, but is it a tablet, a phone, a smartwatch, or something entirely different? HTC hasn’t officially told us yet, but today’s leak might just indicate that it’s the HTC One (M8) Ace.

The picture above is the One (M8) Ace and you will notice that it not only curves horizontally like the One (M8), but it also has a vertical curve to it as well. So, yes, it does have some extra curves to it, but we don’t know for sure if this is indeed the device that HTC was referring to, but my money is on it.

Google+ Stories and Movies coming later this week


It appears Google+ isn’t the walking dead, at least for today. Google just announced Google+ Stories and Movies, which will be launching on the desktop and Android this week (iOS coming soon).

Stories is the bigger news of the day, and is perfect for vacations. After your vacation, you are likely to have hundreds of photos and videos to sift through, but Google is going to make it a little easier by gifting you a Story, which is a travelogue or diary. In a nutshell, it’s a slide show with notes describing the things that you were doing or places you were visiting on your trip. We can only assume that you will be able to modify the gifted Story, just like you can with Movies.

In preparation for G Watch launch, LG says that a smart watch is a fusion of IT and fashion


The LG G Watch is set to be the first Android Wear device on the market. Last week, LG released a video highlighting the design of the device. This week the company has released an article entitled “Smart Watch is an IT and fashion fusion.”

The article details how the G Watch is not the first wrist worn device that the company has thought about. In fact, LG released the “Prada Link” in 2008, and a prototype in 2009 that was able to make video calls.

The LG G Watch is set to be released in June in Stealth Black and Champagne Gold.
