Disadvantages of Twitter and Linkedin integration :

1. Information has become more centralized which can be a possibility for identity theft.

Word of HTC Evo 4G storage bug couldn't come at a worse time

Posted by Vikas Pandey on June 4, 2010 at 2:57 PM Comments comments (0)

If you read our review of HTC's awe-inspiring Evo 4G, you might have noticed that we recommended ditching the paltry stock 8GB microSD card and living large by throwing in a 32GB model. We were being a wee bit facetious, but as it turns out the advice was well-founded. We're seeing reports flung far and wide across these great united internets about errors regarding "insufficient file per...

Google to disclose WiFi snooping data to regulators amid allegations it was collected intentionally

Posted by Nitin Bhardwaj on June 4, 2010 at 2:41 PM Comments comments (0)

And the mess gets messier. A class action lawsuit filed against Google in Oregon has now been enriched with the allegation that Google willfully collected personal data with its Street View cars, rather than doing so accidentally, as it claims. It's a bold accusation, whose primary basis is a patent application, filed by Google in November 2008, for a "computer-implemented method of estimating the location of a wireless device." A subsidiary claim references the "obtaining [o...

Nokia will kick off MeeGo effort with ARM-based silicon, not x86

Posted by Vikas Pandey on May 31, 2010 at 6:49 AM Comments comments (0)

We've heard a similar message from Nokia dating all the way back to MeeGo's introduction at MWC back in February, so it comes as little surprise that Espoo is apparently trumpeting the virtues of ARM for its first MeeGo-powered device that's still targeted for the tail end of 2010. What might make this particularly interesting is the fact that MeeGo 1.0 is clearly further along for Atom devi...

Nokia N8's USB On-The-Go support demoed, lesser phones turned into slaves

Posted by Abhinav Katiyar on May 31, 2010 at 6:34 AM Comments comments (0)

Among the Nokia N8's neater tricks is its support for USB On-The-Go, which basically lets you connect USB peripherals (flash drives, for example) to the phone and have it act as a host -- a duty usually reserved for heavier-duty devices like PCs. Though the N8 is still a solid month or three away from release, we're getting a nice little video demo on YouTube today of an N8 being walked throug...

ASUS Eee Pad official: Intel CULV processors, Windows 7, and a 10-hour battery life

Posted by Nitin Bhardwaj on May 31, 2010 at 6:26 AM Comments comments (0)

Computex is really starting to ramp up now, as ASUS has taken the covers off its brand new Eee Pads. Of most interest will be the 12-inch EP121, which sports Intel's Core 2 Duo CULV processors, Windows 7, and a reputed 10-hour battery life. Sort of like a laptop sans the keyboard, you might say, which is probably why ASUS is also touting a "hybrid" dock/keyboard solution for those times when you want some more ta...

ASUS Eee Pad EP101TC and EP121 preview

Posted by Nitin Bhardwaj on May 31, 2010 at 6:21 AM Comments comments (0)

At long last, the ASUS Eee Pads have arrived, but unfortunately they're just not working the way we've been imagining for all these months. We got a few minutes to toy around with the 10-inch EP101TC and 12-inch EP121, but both were barely working. And "barely" is being gracious. We can tell you that both models are incredibly well built -- they've got aluminum edges and matte back covers -- and neither wa...

ASUS Eee Tablet preview

Posted by Nitin Bhardwaj on May 31, 2010 at 6:18 AM Comments comments (0)

Alright, stick with us here. For some reason, ASUS decided it best to name its freshest e-reader the Eee Tablet, while its downright magical tablet goes by Eee Pad. Got all that? Good. The Eee Tablet (again, not to be confused with the Eee Pad tablet) is half e-reader, half note taker, and it's an interesting twist on a played product category. We took a few precious minutes to exp...

Microsoft Kin One and Two review

Posted by Abhinav Katiyar on May 31, 2010 at 5:33 AM Comments comments (0)
Make no mistake: the Kin One and Two are coming into the world as the black sheep of the phone industry, and Microsoft would have it no other way. Straddling the fence somewhere between a dedicated smartphone and high-spec featurephone, they've been tricky to understand since the day they were first leaked (even Microsoft seemed unsure ...
