The HTC 10 Lifestyle Is A Snapdragon 652 Variant Of The Phone, Headed To Some Markets Including India, Indonesia, And China

When it announced the HTC 10 yesterday, the company snuck in an interesting tidbit in its press release regarding the availability of two variants with different Snapdragon processors that are headed to different markets. It turns out that the second variant is the HTC 10 Lifestyle and it's been shown on several of HTC's global websites, hinting at its release there instead of the regular 10 model.

If you head over to the smartphone's page on HTC's site in India, Indonesia, China, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, or Myanmar, you'll see a small "Lifestyle" written next to the HTC 10's name.

Drivemode Updates With Support For Gmail, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, And More

Using your phone while on the road is extremely dangerous. A safer way to stay connected is to use a hands-free kit. This is great if you want to make calls, but less helpful if you're dependent on the myriad of messaging services currently in use.

Enter Drivemode, which has been kicking around the Google Play Store for some time now. At a very fundamental level, it provides a gesture interface for a number of apps and system functions, essentially allowing you to safely use your phone without even looking at the screen. It also supports the composition and sending of SMS messages through voice recognition.

Logitech Expands Its Portable Audio Empire With Acquisition Of Jaybird LLC

Logitech reached an agreement today to purchase Jaybird LLC for $50 million cash, plus up to another $45 million in earn-out pay if certain growth targets are achieved over the next two years. Jaybird joins Ultimate Ears as another wireless audio innovator brought under the Logitech product portfolio umbrella.

Jaybird's fitness oriented headphones, the BlueBuds X and more recently, the X2 have a very loyal group of followers, including AP's owner and founder, Artem. These fans should be somewhat reassured by the fact that Logitech intends to keep the Jaybird brand intact. The UE brand has continued to thrive and produce excellent speakers after being purchased by Logitech, and I think we can expect to see a similar path forward for Jaybird.

HTC's Dot View Case Is Being Replaced With The HTC Ice View Case For The New HTC 10

One of the most visually striking accessories for the HTC One M8 and M9 was the HTC Dot View case. The flip cases had a cool retro vibe with pixellated clocks, weather icons, and other notifications formed by the screen shining through a matrix of tiny holes cut into the case's protective screen cover. Well, the days of the Dot View case are over, and in its place HTC has announced a new flip cover case, the Ice View which is available on HTC's website for $49.99.

The Ice View has a very similar construction to the Dot View case it replaces.

Chrome Safe Browsing Now Warns Against Fake 'Download' Buttons And Other Deceptive Ads

You know those fake "download" buttons you see when you're searching for old Super NES ROMs completely legitimate open-source software? The kind that advertising networks sometimes spit out even on otherwise above-board sites? Yeah, they're awful, and they often link directly to copycat or malicious files.

A Quick Hands-On With And First Impressions Of The HTC 10

Let us waste no time: the HTC 10 is here, and we're able to tell you a little bit about it today (a very, very little, frankly). While the phone doesn't ship to consumers (in the US, at least) until early May, we've got a production unlocked version of the US handset right now, and I've got some thoughts on it. Unfortunately, I am only able to tell you about certain aspects of the phone in strongly suggested single sentences (i.e., camera, speed, display, audio performance, software). Which is weird. But hey, I'll try!

The design of phone is fair game, though, so let's dig in on this point.

The Facebook Messenger Platform Is Gaining Support For Bots

Bots. They're coming. They're not after world domination. They don't want to entrap mankind in order to guarantee our safety. They simply want to talk.

And they're talking, alright. They're talking on Telegram. They're coming to Skype. Google apparently has another messaging service in the works, and they're making plans to talk all over that.

Now they're ready to host conversations in Facebook Messenger.

HTC's Boost+ Device Cleaner App Hits The Play Store, Currently Only Compatible With HTC 10 [Update: More Devices]

HTC started testing its very own memory cleaner app just recently in the HTC Preview program, and now Boost+ has made its debut in the Play Store. Oh, it does more than clean memory. It locks apps, empties cache, and so on, but do you want any of it? Too bad, you can't use it anyway. This release appears to only be compatible with the new HTC 10, which essentially no one has yet.
