You're really going to want to tune in to BGR tomorrow...
For smartphone fans around the world, Sunday will be one of the biggest days of the year with not one, not two, but three major announcements coming
The 2015 edition of the Mobile World Congress show that is about to kick off in Barcelona, Spain will likely be one of the best in recent years when it comes to new hardware announcements, as at least two hot mobile devices will be unveiled during the show — the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 each have their own special events on Sunday.
But that’s not all that’s happening at MWC, as there will be plenty of interesting products on display coming from much smaller players. More →
The annual Mobile World Congress trade show has been a bit stale in recent years, since most big smartphone vendors have been hosting their own dedicated press conferences to make key announcements.

I live in New York City and I can’t remember the last time I left my apartment just to take a stroll.
If I walk out that door, it’s because I need food or because I have a previous obligation; work or social. The reason I’m not willingly going outdoors isn’t that I’m lazy (although that isn’t helping), it’s because the temperature has been hovering around freezing for nearly two months straight.
The Internet has evolved at an incredible pace. Websites that looked amazing less than a decade ago are absolutely hideous by today’s standards — even the websites that are now worth billions of dollars.
Many people may have already tried Airbnb and similar services that offer great alternatives to hotels, but not many can say they were able to rent an entire village. That’s apparently one possibility available to tourists traveling through Hungary, as they’ll be able to rent an entire village, complete with the horse in the picture above, for just around €700 a day, The Guardian reports.

Netflix’s critically acclaimed series House of Cards is significant for a number of reasons. The show itself is a fan favorite that has won awards and been touted as the first Netflix show to truly rival productions from top networks like HBO. Beyond that, however, House of Cards was Netflix’s first big-budget self-produced show, and it let the world know that the company wasn’t just going to be a portal for dusty old movies and stale TV shows — it was going to be a major digital network.
It looks like one of the Internet’s biggest scumbags is trying to exercise his “right to be forgotten.” Ars Technica reports that Craig Brittain, the former proprietor of a “revenge porn” website, has filed requests under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to have Google remove 23 links that contain accounts of his past actions, including a link to an FTC press release describing its settlement with him. Brittain says that the offending links contain “unauthorized use of photos of me and other related information.”
At the dawn of a new console generation, there are inevitably going to be long stretches without many major game releases. Although The Order: 1886 just came out and Bloodborne and Battlefield Hardline are coming soon, you probably won’t have to quit your job to stay caught up.
The Galaxy S6 leaks continue with just a couple of days left until Samsung’s 2015 flagships get official, and this time around we’re looking at something completely different from your average image or hardware leak. The first pictures showing Samsung’s redesigned TouchWiz interface for the phone have appeared, and the first Galaxy S6 apps are already available to download from xda-developers. More →
Every week, a landslide of video game trailers hit the Internet, hyping up the games that have just been released, the games that are about to be released and even the games that don’t have release dates. It can be a bit overwhelming to keep up with all of them, which is why we’ve decided to collect our favorites into a single post. More →
Smartphone and tablet chargers are far from being exciting accessories, yet we have to constantly carry them with us on the off-chance that our beloved mobile device runs out of battery life when we least expect it. FlexCharger, however, is a different kind of charger for mobile devices — in fact, it’s the only charger in recent memory that we might even call exciting. More →
