BitTorrent Bleep App Will Offer Private Instant Messaging

Now that the NSA has everyone second-guessing themselves before hitting the Send button, BitTorrent is jumping into the chat game. The service credited with enabling record-breaking piracy of HBO’s Game of Thrones announced Bleep alpha, a chat service for Windows. The chat’s draw is that it’s meant to keep your chat safe...

Microsoft Announces Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Halo Limited Edition: The Master Chief

Microsoft Announces Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Halo Limited Edition: The Master Chief

Here is some odd-ball news for your Friday: Microsoft just released a mouse that sports an image of Master Chief. It’s not surprising to see Microsoft promoting its beloved Halo protagonist, but it is weird to see the Chief on an ordinary mouse, given how rarely it has made PC appearances. Whatever Microsoft’s reasons, the Microsoft...

Typo Revises Litigious Keyboard For iPhone, Now Taking Pre-Orders For Typo 2

Typo Revises Litigious Keyboard For iPhone, Now Taking Pre-Orders For Typo 2

The virtual keyboard on Apple's iPhone line works pretty well, though if you're old school, you might still prefer a physical plank. Ryan Seacrest tried to rectify the situation by funding Typo, a keyboard case for the iPhone, but the end result looked a little too much like BlackBerry's iconic design. BlackBerry ultimately won a court order...

The French Are Coming! In Possible Bid For T-Mobile

The French Are Coming! In Possible Bid For T-Mobile

The French may be getting ready to teach Sprint a lesson, that lesson being "You snooze, you lose." While Sprint contemplates a merger with T-Mobile, France's Iliad just swooped in with a buyout offer of its own, which could be the beginning of a bidding war. Had Sprint been more aggressive at the onset, it could have avoided this situation....

Samsung To Beat Apple To The Punch With Galaxy Note 4 Launch In Early September

Samsung To Beat Apple To The Punch With Galaxy Note 4 Launch In Early September

As Apple continues to hammer out manufacturing logistics with TSMC and contends with delays related to the much hyped semi-sapphire crystal glass material that we're still hoping makes it onto the iPhone 6, Samsung is apparently gearing up to launch its next-generation Galaxy Note 4 in Berlin on September 3, 2014. That's according to Samsung's...

Shooting Victim Saved As Samsung Galaxy Mega Takes A Bullet For Him

Shooting Victim Saved As Samsung Galaxy Mega Takes A Bullet For Him

In the movie Rush Hour, Jackie Chan's character brags to Chris Tucker that his father once caught a bullet with his bare hands. That would be impressive if it actually happened, but to the best of our knowledge, Rush Hour is completely fictional. What isn't fictional, however, is that a Samsung Galaxy Mega phablet saved a man's life by doing...

Blackberry Brings BBM To Windows Store And Lumia Phones Everywhere

Blackberry Brings BBM To Windows Store And Lumia Phones Everywhere

Arguably, BlackBerry should've opened up its BBM platform to everyone years ago, as it could've leapfrogged Hangouts, iMessage, Snapchat, and some of the other chat tools ahead of where we are now. At this point, the BBM userbase is so small, that it arriving on iOS and Android a while back has had little impact on the company's overall stake...

AMD Kaveri Update: A10-7800 APU Review

AMD Kaveri Update: A10-7800 APU Review

AMD updated its family of Kaveri-based A-Series APUs for desktop systems today. We first took an official look at Kaveri back in January, when we evaluated the A8-7600 APU. That particular APU is being re-launched today at a new price point, but AMD is also introducing a couple of new APUs as well, namely the A10-7800 and the A6-7400K. As...

Apple to Cull 200 Positions After Beats Acquisition Completes

Apple to Cull 200 Positions After Beats Acquisition Completes

It looks like Apple's first order-of-business following its $3 billion Beats acquisition will be to tell about 200 people to, ahem, beat it. Apple's no doubt been very hard at work since it made its announcement of its desire to purchase Beats public, and it's no surprise: This isn't exactly a small acquisition. At quick glance, it might look...

FCC Chief "Deeply Troubled" By Verizon Throttling, Demands Explanation

FCC Chief "Deeply Troubled" By Verizon Throttling, Demands Explanation

For years, Verizon and the other telcos have imposed limits on supposedly "Unlimited" data plans and justified those limits with dubious appeals to network quality of service. While throttling data usage makes a great deal of sense in certain contexts (downtown rush hour being an excellent example), most companies don't throttle based on time...

Codemasters' F1 2014 Is 'Most Accessible Yet', But Leaves Next-Gen Versions In Pit Lane

Codemasters' F1 2014 Is 'Most Accessible Yet', But Leaves Next-Gen Versions In Pit Lane

I don't think that it'd be an understatement to call the 2014 Formula 1 season one of the most exciting in recent years. After four straight years of Red Bull Racing domination, major changes brought on by the FIA have put many of our expectations in a blender and poured out some real surprises. We see cars with weird noses, hear engines that...
