Remember that time Microsoft teased what most sane humans thought were new logos? That was right around two years ago, but the branding you see above is no mistake — that’s the new Microsoft logo, landing just months after Windows 8′s new flag and merely weeks before the aforesaid operating system takes the planet by storm. Astoundingly, it has been a full quarter-century since Microsoft gave itself a new logo, and while we’re sure pundits will jump all over it just because “dealing with change is hard,” there’s no doubt that the outfit’s new face [...]
The trickle of Meizu MX news continues: we’re on target for a late September release in China, with a price tag of ¥4,999 ($780 converted) for the 32GB quad-core brute and ¥3,999 ($625) for its less monstrous dual-core 16GB sibling. Both phones are powered by A9 processors, although it’s not yet clear if the quad-core chip is same as the Samsung engine in the PlayStation Vita. The 4.3-inch screen will be qHD and overall thickness will stay within the 10mm (0.4-inch) threshold. No doubt we’ll have the full low-down soon as it launches.
The much anticipated ASUS EeePad Slider emerged at IFA 2011, and we were lucky enough to grab a hands-on with this mythical portable at the Nvidia stand at the show.
You can’t look at this tablet without getting down to its raison d’etre, and that’s the built in keyboard which is revealed by sliding back the screen.
It’s smaller than we’d have hoped, and more cramped than the Asus Transformer, which is its main competitor. If you have fat fingers then you’ll need to find a different tablet to write your memoirs, but even chunky-digited folk will still be able [...]
For the past couple weeks we’ve received numerous inquiries from users who were surprised by Facebook’s new facial recognition system which suggests users tag friends. The feature has brought about a number of complaints, the most frequent of which was that the user didn’t want to be tagged in the photo in the first place. However now that the image is shown without any context (just a screenshot of the user’s face), the likelihood that the user gets tagged increases.
There’s no doubt that this new feature has had a positive impact on site engagement, however many users simply [...]

Unless you have a system worked out, you’re no doubt familiar with the idea of “walking down a wire” to find out what plug goes to which gadget, computer, monitor or what have you. Designer Soon Mo Kang wants to save you the trouble with the Multi-Tab surge protector, which not only features LEGO-like components, but labels so you know what you’ve got plugged in.
The idea is that, with the Multi-Tab, you’d have a block for each thing you’re plugging in — such as a monitor, for example. You’d always know where your monitor was plugged in, as a glowing [...]
HTC Hero is no doubt the best Android phone currently available and features the cool Sense UI for Android phones by HTC.
Today, HTC has finally released the Kernel Source Code for HTC Hero. Developers can now make use of it and develop more extensions, and modify the phone in whatever way they want.
HTC Hero Kernel Source Code will allow developers to create custom ROMs and other modifications to make the user experience much better. Even though HTC released an update to the HCT Hero firmware, but the phone still needs a better ROM which is more robust, faster and has more features.
