Now that Samsung has rolled out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its Galaxy S5, we can expect its other flagship smartphones – the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge, to follow suit. However, it looks like Samsung will be skipping version 5.0 and roll up the Android 5.0.1 update to these devices instead.
Samsung may have said that they want to reduce their smartphone portfolio, but the company is still busy working on new devices. Not too long ago, the Korean company unveiled a brand new Galaxy A series of smartphone, the Galaxy A3 and A5, and now, it looks like they are working on an E series as well.
It looks like the Guardians of Peace have won, as Sony Pictures has decided to cancel the theatrical release of The Interview. This news comes after major cinema chains in the US pulled out of showing the movie over its Christmas debut, along with additional threats from the hackers that they would pull another 9/11 style attack on any cinema that showed the movie.
Uber sure has been under lots of fire lately with several incidents regarding drivers assaulting passengers, and it looks like the company wants to buck up and make things safer for the public. Uber recently announced that they will improve background checks on drivers, using methods such as biometric scans and even lie detectors during driver screening.
To be frank, this device is long time coming. It was first introduced to the world back in February during Mobile World Congress and BlackBerry has even published a number of preview through its official blog. Not to forget, consumers in selected region were even able to pre-order the device prior to today’s announcement.
So, here it is: the new BlackBerry Classic, formerly known as the BlackBerry Q20.

In order to provide an efficient cooling system, Asus has implemented its very own DirectCU H2O technology in this graphics card, which also gives users the flexibility to choose between air and water cooling.
What a fiasco this is turning into. The Delhi High Court has granted an injunction against OnePlus, banning the company from selling any more of its OnePlus One smartphone other than what it has in stock in the country. The injunction was passed after Micromax, one of India’s top smartphone makers, filed a suit against OnePlus, claiming that the One’s Cyanogen branding violates the exclusive agreement it signed with Cyanogen.
