Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 pictures leak


While we only saw the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 picture leak a few days ago, a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 picture has leaked, courtesy of Twitter leaker @evleaks.

The Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 is the follow up to last years Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, and like the Tab 4 7.0, it comes in two colors, black and white. It will come with Android 4.4 out of the box, and also makes use of a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. Because the features aren’t really that groundbreaking, the device should have a relatively low price tag. Hit the break for one more picture, in black!

Picture of rugged Moto G Forte leaks

moto G forte

If the image above leaked by @evleaks is to be believed, it looks like Motorola might be trying to get into the rugged smartphone market. The image shows a Moto G Forte, which looks like a bulky, more durable Moto G. While it’s pretty unlikely that this will end up being a completely waterproof and shatterproof device, we might see some water resistance, similar to some of Samsung’s newer devices.

Hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer before Motorola makes this one official.

Bill reminders and payment links might be coming to Google Now

Nexus 5 Google Now

Android Police recently decompiled the latest Google Now .apk file and found some pretty interesting bits of code that may turn into a helpful Google Now feature in the near future. According to the teardown, there are some strings and information that indicate that Google will be able to remind you about when you have bills coming up, and will even offer quick links to pay them online.

A reminder might, for example, show you a credit card payment that’s due soon, complete with the total balance on the account, the minimum payment due, and a link to the card’s website for payment. Sounds great on paper, but as with any other financial information, it’s some pretty sensitive stuff. It looks like Google will at least hide some of the account numbers for things like credit cards, and you can turn the feature off completely, of course. Read more

PlayOn testing Chromecast support in latest beta


PlayOn is a fantastic service that acts pretty similarly to a Roku box. You set up the PlayOn server on a computer, then that server slings content to compatible devices, which could be an Android device, Xbox 360, or another computer. It offers tons of different channels and plug-ins offering links to stream shows online, or as specific as finding foreign news broadcasts. It currently has support for Amazon Instant Video, ABC, CBS, NBC, MLB, CNN, and so much more. It even supports the streaming of local media. Read more

According to teardown, Samsung Galaxy S5 will be hard to repair


The Samsung Galaxy S5 has an international release date of April 11, but a Russian website, Ferra, managed to get their hands on one and tear it down.

According to the site, it will be very difficult to remove the screen from the device because of a special adhesive that Samsung is using. After getting the display off the device, the teardown is apparently a little easier, but the entire operation will still take over an hour.

Google is cleaning up the Play Store’s sexually explicit material, naughty apps no longer welcome


Google is done letting people get down and dirty with the Play Store. The Google Play Developer Program policies are getting revamped and it should expel any “erotic” content from the store. So your eyeballs will need a new storefront to glean upon as you wipe the drool from your face. While there was nothing very raunchy found in the Play Store, there was certainly some content that should not have been there since it is a store for everyone. For example, there were some wallpaper apps with scantily clad women. There is a time and a place and the Play Store just isn’t that place. Read more
