How Google completely botched the Google Glass rollout

Why Is Google Glass Bad

Google Glass has had a rough year in the court of public opinion. Not only has the device become the fodder of jokes for late-night comedians, but even some of its high-profile early adopters have started bashing it with gleeful abandon. Forbes has written a good autopsy of all the mistakes that Google has made when rolling out Glass to the general public and it gives some pretty convincing answers about why something that generated massive media hype when it was first teased two years ago is now seen as the next Segway.

Forza Motorsport 5 and Need for Speed: Rivals attempted to fill the gap last fall, but with the extended delay of the PlayStation 4 exclusive Driveclub, Project CARS has taken the reins. Developed by Slightly Mad Studios, Project CARS (Community Assisted Racing Simulator) is an impossibly gorgeous racing game with one of the most interesting development cycles of any title announced for the new consoles.

Android apps vulnerable to Heartbleed have been downloaded 150 million times

Android Apps Heartbleed Bug

Patching up Android to make sure it’s not vulnerable to Heartbleed is one thing. Patching all vulnerable Android apps, on the other hand, is quite another. Re/code draws our attention to a new study from research firm FireEye that claims there have been around 150 million downloads of Android apps that are vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug. And to make matters worse, the researchers say that the assorted “Heartbleed detectors” you can now find in the Google Play store will do little to help you root out vulnerable apps you’ve downloaded.

Samsung lures developers to smartwatches with $1.25 million in cash

Samsung Smartwatch Apps

By all accounts, consumer responses to smartwatches have not exactly been enthusiastic so far. Big gadget makers will continue to push smartwatches and other wearables as growth in the smartphone market continues to slow, but without compelling functionality and solid ecosystems, those efforts will be exceedingly difficult. To address the latter point, Samsung has decided to dangle a pretty massive carrot it hopes developers will chase.

Samsung now has another company to fear besides Apple

Samsung Vs. Xiaomi Smartphone Sales

Right now, the smartphone market is essentially split between Samsung and Apple, with all other companies struggling to make a profit. However, this could soon change, as Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is hoping to shake things up with its dirt-cheap smartphones that actually sport fairly impressive specs. For example, it’s flagship Mi3 smartphone features a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, a 5-inch Full HD 1080p display, and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, all for about $330.

Have we already reached peak iPad?

Apple Q2 2014 Earnings iPad Sales

Apple’s latest earnings report was mostly good news for the company, but there was one potentially dark cloud: iPad sales. On the quarter, Apple sold 16.35 million iPads, which was below the consensus estimate of 19.7 million units sold. Analyst Benedict Evans has put together a chart for trailing twelve months unit sales for both the iPhone and the iPad and has found that the iPad’s growth has been stopped dead in its tracks.

Amazing 4K displays are coming soon to 10-inch tablets

4K Display for Tablets

Japan Display on Wednesday announced that it has already developed an ultra-high resolution 4K x 2K LCD module for tablets that’s not only capable of offering a huge 3840 x 2160 resolution on a 10.1-inch display, but it’s also energy-efficient. The company said in its announcement that even though the new tablet screen has 4K resolution, power consumption will be similar to 10.1-inch WQXGA LCD modules (which have 2560 x 1600 resolution), as it uses low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) technology.

BREAKING — Apple reports Q2 earnings: Profit crushes estimates, revenue climbs despite lack of new launches

Apple Earnings Q2 2014

Earnings season is now in full swing and as always, Apple’s are the most hotly anticipated results in the technology sector. This time around, however, it’s not because industry watchers want to see how impressive the company’s most recent quarter was, but because the world wants to see how Apple is doing after not having released a notable new product since this past November. Last year, CEO Tim Cook promised new launches in “exciting new product categories” across 2014, and he will undoubtedly promise exciting new products again on Wednesday’s earnings call. But so far, we’ve seen exactly nothing new or exciting from Apple in 2014.
