Screenshots of Microsoft’s Project Spartan have surfaced online through an early review by a Russian tech site. It’s currently unclear which build of the browser is being used, but it does provide an interesting peek at what Microsoft is bringing to the table; and perhaps help answer the question of whether it is another Internet Explorer.
The Cupertino giant, Apple has submitted a patent application back in 2014 and it has now been officially published on the US Patent and Trademark Office’s website. The patent details on the company’s method of making devices water-resistant by applying a hydrophobic coating. Could this mean that a water-resistant iPhone is in the works?
Microsoft has released the official preview for Office 2016 for Mac, and users do not need to have an Office 365 subscription to try it out. This preview is slightly different from the Windows version in that it includes improved support for Retina displays and iCloud syncing.
Steam Machines will finally be arriving later this year, and Valve has decided to reveal just what to expect. A listing of the PC/console hybrids has appeared on the Steam store, and to say that the information is surprising is and understatement.

It can only be one of those “Only in China” things.

The Xiaomi Mi Pad has been in Malaysia for quite some time now but there’s one problem – it’s only available for sale (officially) on Xiaomi Malaysia’s website. This means that those who wish to get a look and feel of the tablet first before paying RM799 for it are not able to do so. ESC ICT just announced that they are now an authorised distributor for the Mi Pad in Malaysia, which means that for the first time, you can officially buy the Xiaomi Mi Pad in a physical store.
HTC unveiled the One M9 at MWC 2015, as well as couple of other products like the HTC Vive and HTC Grip. However, sources have reported that a HTC One E9 could make its debut in China as early as March 2015. The HTC One M8 also had an E variant back in 2014 and it seems the Taiwanese company will be doing the same for its latest flagship.
OnePlus has revealed that it will be entering a new product category in April, but beyond that little announcement, there is nothing else that the company has shared. It did, however, mention that the new product will not be a tablet or a smartwatch, which are basically the obvious guesses.
