Years too late, Microsoft has made a killer Windows Phone feature

Hey, remember Windows Phone? You probably don’t and for a long time it seems like Microsoft hasn’t remembered it either. Behind the scenes, however, it looks like Microsoft has been working on new features for its mobile operating system and at least one of them is really cool. Per The Verge, Microsoft recently took the wraps off a new feature that it describes as “pre-touch sensing for mobile interaction.” Essentially, this feature can detect when your fingers are near the devices display and will automatically put up menu options for you to use.

T-Mobile may soon troll AT&T in ways we never thought possible

In case you haven’t noticed, T-Mobile will go to great lengths to troll its rivals, particularly AT&T. That said, we never expected that T-Mobile CEO John Legere would ever go this far just to take a shot at a rival carrier.

Per ESPN, Legere this week paid $21,800 for the rights to pick out a temporary tattoo that will be placed on track star Nick Symmonds’s right shoulder. This being Legere, he immediately started musing about whether to give the tattoo an anti-AT&T message. More →

This flexible, holographic phone is the wildest thing you’ll see all week

We’ve seen plenty of wild experimental smartphone concepts over the years but the new HoloFlex phone designed by Queen’s University’s Human Media Lab is something else. The phone combines 3D holographic images with a flexible display to create what might be a prototype for smartphones of the future.

The Human Media Lab explains that the HoloFlex is “is capable of rendering 3D images with motion parallax and stereoscopy to multiple simultaneous users without head tracking or glasses.” All images on the device’s display are “rendered into 12-pixel wide circular blocks rendering the full view of the 3D object from a particular viewpoint” so you can see every aspect of an object depending on the angle from which you’re looking at it.

Galaxy S7 vs. Nexus 6P comparison shows stock Android isn’t always better

If there’s one common refrain we often hear from Android fans, it’s that the experience you get with the stock version of Android is always better than whatever version of Android has been modified by manufacturers such as Samsung, LG and HTC. But is this always true? Recently Pocketnow decided to do an in-depth comparison of the Nexus 6P and the Galaxy S7 edge and it discovered that while there are advantages to using stock Android, they don’t always outweigh the advantages of new features added by OEMs. More →

Star Wars Did Han Shoot First

The guy who played Greedo just ended one of the biggest ‘Star Wars’ debates

The guy who played Greedo just ended one of the biggest ‘Star Wars’ debates

One of the most controversial decisions that Star Wars creator George Lucas has made over the years was to change the sequence of events that happened when Han Solo was accosted by bounty hunter Greedo in the cantina. In the original cut of the film, Han Solo shot first at Greedo and easily killed him before the inept bounty hunter could get a shot off. In the 1997 “special edition” of the movie, Lucas re-edited the scene to make it look as though Greedo had actually shot at Han first.

Why did he change this? It doesn’t really matter since it was one of many questionable decisions Lucas made in the late ’90s and early 2000s. The point is that most fans believe that Han should have been the one to shoot first and now they have no less of an authority than the actor who played Greedo backing them up. More →
