Motorola clarifies position on Android apps, is still cool with developer community

Being an outspoken executive often involves a steady diet of crow. So, when Sanjay Jha seemingly threw Android developers under the proverbial bus with last week’s comments, it seemed only a matter of time before the backtracking commenced.

Nintendo 3DS users will soon have another way to extend their system’s notoriously limited battery life, thanks to Hyperkin’s new 3DS Powerplus.

CE-Oh no he didn’t!: BMW exec says electric vehicles ‘won’t work,’ but would love to sell you one anyway

Jim O’Donnell, CEO and chairman of BMW North America, recently sat down with the Detroit News to discuss the ActiveE — an electric version of BMW’s 1 Series coupe, available for lease in the US this fall.

Are you tired of waking up to the same old semiconductor-based solar array? Do you yearn for a change? We know you do and, thanks again to the wonder and mystery of magnetic fields (they’re not just for stopping speech anymore), there’s a new day dawning.

Nyko Power Pack+ and Charge Base for Nintendo 3DS review

Review When we reviewed the Nintendo 3DS (both times) there were some things we liked and others we didn’t, but one thing stood out as a true flaw: the battery life. Three to four hours on a charge just doesn’t cut it when portable game systems are traditionally known for shrugging off entire international flights. The […]
