HTC's beautiful new flagship phone leaks again in new pics
HTC is having a pretty tough time keeping its newest flagship smartphone under wraps, but we aren’t about to complain.
With almost a month left in its Indiegogo campaign, Dolfi has already topped its $100,000 goal by more than $25,000 by convincing many backers to invest in its interesting clothes-washing technology. Dolfi is a tiny device, about as big as a smartphone, that can wash delicate clothes by itself using ultrasonic technology to remove dirt from clothes that are immersed in a sink or other container with water and washing powder.

It’s been a long, arduous wait, but the good news is that it’s nearly over. LG announced on Friday that the Lollipop update for G3 smartphones is “coming soon.” How soon, we’re not sure, but considering the fact that the update is already live on the G3 in other territories (and has been for weeks), it shouldn’t be much longer.

There are very few YouTube channels with as much universal appeal as Bad Lip Reading. For nearly four years, the creators of the Bad Lip Reading videos have been twisting pop culture touchstones into an unrecognizable and hysterical mess, replacing the words of songs, movies and presidential debates with their own off-kilter dialogue.

There has been a great deal of animosity directed toward the video game industry as of late, and most of it deservedly so. 2014 was a year that we couldn’t wait to leave behind, but now that it’s gone, a lot of us are still dwelling on it.

Remember how badass Legolas looked in The Lord of the Rings when he would rapidly fire off arrows at hapless orcs who actually thought they had a chance to kill him?

The results, as you’ll see in a video below, are highly impressive. More →
Samsung’s TouchWiz Android overlay has a lot of haters out there but one of them now thinks that it’s been vastly improved with Android 5.0 Lollipop. SamMobile’s Abhijeet M., who last year unleashed a tirade against TouchWiz for still being buggy and laggy, has now found that TouchWiz on Android 5.0 Lollipop is better than it’s ever been, although he gives Google a lot of the credit for important changes.

One reason why the iPhone is one of the most popular cameras on Flickr (second only to Canon in 2014) is that Apple realized a long time ago people love taking photos with smartphones, and it has constantly improved the cameras in its iPhones and iPads since launching them.
Similarly, other handset makers have released smartphones that are getting better and better at taking photos and recording videos.

Just two days after the latest Windows 10 event, Microsoft has made available the January build of its Windows 10 technical preview.

If you’re in the U.S. and you activated a phone in the last quarter of 2014, chances are good that it was an iPhone.
