Last week, we heard a rumor from Microsoft newsie Paul Thurrott that Windows 9 would be making its way to market in April 2015, which seems like a pretty tight schedule given that Microsoft also reportedly hasn't even begun coding of the update. Amazingly, when Thurrott's report came out, a well-known Microsoft leaker made an even more bold claim that the Windows 9 RTM (release to manufacturing) would hit on October 21st of this year. The tweet was simple from WZor, reading: "Win 9 released in April 2015? No! No! No! ..WIN RTM-0 RELEASED SIGN-OFF DEALINE IN 21 OCTOBER 2014 :)" The idea seems pretty crazy, and there have been plenty of reporters who find it impossible to believe including The Verge's Tom Warren who called the idea "bullshit". And, frankly we do find it hard to believe, especially since Windows 8.1 update 1 is in the works for this spring, and as mentioned before, reports claim that Microsoft hasn't even begun coding for Windows 9. On the other hand, it seems … [Read more...] about Windows 9 RTM in October seems too good to believe
Newsy is an online media company that keeps an eye over the coverage of a specific topic and how it is presented by various sources. You might have been wondering what the mainstream media was saying about the launch of the Android Superphone, the Nexus One. You will hear the gamut of opinions about the device -sometimes all during the same report! Some reporters understand the concept of Google 's distribution of the phone through its web site; others just know that it is not an iPhone . And while you are watching these stories, you might need to remind yourself that these reports were not made for the cellphone fanatic that reads the mobile phone blogs. They were produced for the average Joe who doesn't know HTC from OTC and thought that Google manufactured the phone. HTC Nexus One Specifications source: Newsy via AndroidandMe … [Read more...] about What is the mainstream media saying about the Nexus One?

BuzzFeed is the clickbait poster child of current Internet times, but its recent news section is a totally different story. Live reports from the frontlines in Ukraine - check. First look in Twitter's new offices - check. Deep analysis on why Russia went all-out in Syria - check. Trying to escape the clickbait image, BuzzFeed proves it can rank high among the new newsy media like Vox, Ozy, Digg, Quartz and so on, and that is why it is somewhat comforting to see the BuzzFeed News section arrive to our mobile devices as an app.While the content is pretty engaging, the app leaves something to be desired when it comes to Google's Material Design language guidelines, or usability in general. There is no splash widget to take an entire homescreen, so you can read all the news in the morning without even entering the app, for instance. On the other hand, there are breaking news alerts, which can be pretty annoying, so thankfully BuzzFeed has provided a way to categorize or mute them … [Read more...] about BuzzFeed News app arrives to Android with serious reporting, not a clickbait in sight
