Chinese smartphone maker Oppo is planning a March 19, 2014 launch event for its upcoming Find 7 smartphone. Or should we say smartphones, as in plural? There's an interesting typo on a photo the company posted to Weibo, a Chinese version of Twitter, in which the company seems to indicate that there will be multiple versions of the Find 7. The photo states "Find 7 [Are] Coming," and according to Engadget, it's a subtle hint of two different SKUs -- one sporting a 5.5-inch panel with a 2560x1440 resolution (538 pixels per inch) and a second with a 1080p display. It was previously hinted there would be a 1080p model, as a Find 7 benchmark with that resolution was spotted on GFXBench earlier this... Read more...
Tired of your smartphone dragging around your wireless carrier's shackles and chains? Unfortunately, Google made the unpopular decision to remove the CyanogenMod installer from its Google Play store on the basis that the app is in violation of its developer terms and "encourages users to void their warranty," but it can't stop handset makers from building devices with the software pre-installed. Meet the Oppo N1. The Oppo N1 breaks ground as the world's first smartphone to feature CyanogenMod from the get-go, and when you buy the device, you'll be able to choose whether your want to run with the custom ROM or Oppo's "ColorOS" instead. Speaking of the buying the device, Oppo stated on its Google+... Read more...
Oppo may not be a household name in the U.S. smartphone market, but it's a name that's certainly building up steam elsewhere. The company has just launched the new Find 5 in a slew of international markets, and it looks as if world domination is the goal. Starting in Q1 2013, the high-end phone will begin shipping for $539 (for the 32GB edition), while a $499 model will ship to those who need only 16GB of onboard storage. It'll pack a 5" 1080p display, a quad-core S4 Pro processor, Android (Jelly Bean), loads of sensors and a 13MP Sony-sourced sensor. Those are the kinds of specifications that'll make power users drool, and if it delivers, it could put Oppo's name on more maps than it is right... Read more...
Your run-of-the-mill smartphone announcement usually involves the same old names, like HTC, Motorola, or Samsung. But one company you probably never heard of is Oppo. That's because Oppo doesn't really have much of a presence in the U.S. market, but it sure is looking to make a grand entrance with its Find 5 Android phone. The Find 5 is absolutely stacked, in terms of smartphone features, not the least of which is the device's 5-inch display with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution. That works out to 441 pixels per inch, each of which is protected behind Corning Gorilla Glass 2. It only gets better from there. Powering all those pixels is a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm APQ8064 processor and 2GB... Read more...
Blu-ray is still struggling to gain widespread support by consumers, but it's safe to say the format has a future. If things like Hulu continue to dominate, that future may be short-lived, but it's a future nonetheless. OPPO is looking to deliver somewhat of a futureproof home entertainment deck in the BDP-80. Not only is it a Blu-ray Disc player, but it's also a DVD-Audio/Video player a Super Audio CD (SACD) player and an HDCP player.It's pretty much the jack of all trades when it comes to home entertainment, as there is hardly a disc/format out there that this one can't handle. It's also supports full 1080p output, an HDMI 1.3 port, an assortment of legacy ports, 7.1-channel audio support and... Read more...
As the old saying goes, one man's ceiling is another man's floor.  And in every down market, somehow, somewhere, another sector of the market is flourishing.  Though many folks out there might not be tapping into that early retirement as early as they would like, troubles in the Financial sector spell opportunity for the geeks in Computer Sciences and IT.  Not to mention the fact that the internet is quickly running short of routing resources, so they'll need a few more smart kids real soon, to backfill things with new technology.  So if you were college-bound, where would you go?  With the flow of course.

Apple recently removed the word Computer from their corporate name, and this might very well reflect the mindset of those people who are calling the shots: at the end of the day they have far less than 5% market share when it comes to computers, a far cry from their lofty position atop the world of portable media playing devices.Obviously Apple's core business is not something that they're likely to give up on any time soon, but did the switch in emphasis cause the company to miss a chance to build relationships with new customers?“When the long-awaited moment arrived, Vista turned out to be in as sorry a state of semicompletion as Mr. Jobs could have hoped for. Many pieces of hardware that customers... Read more...
