Geek.com is back with another round of leaked screenshots. We shared the reported experimental Gmail images last week, which showed a radically different interface from the one we've grown accustomed to. Those images, and these new ones, allegedly come from early test builds, so whether they reveal much about Google's future plans remains to be seen. Nevertheless, here are the new calendar screens, the last of which shows the name "Timely" at the top, apparently Google's internal name for the Calendar app that ships pre-installed on devices.
In case you need more proof that the new HTC One is the worst kept secret in mobile tech since the Nexus 5, we offer People's Exhibit
A W. This video gives the Verizon-branded M8 almost 10 minutes of time in the spotlight and provides a really good comparison to the first-generation HTC One.
At this stage, there's very little we don't know about HTC's new flagship. Nevertheless, the company is set to debut the M8 to the world tomorrow, and the device should be on sale soon after the press conferences.
Update: it looks like the floodgates have opened. A Facebook user showed full photos of the new One, including the back of a Verizon retail box confirming a Snapdragon 801 processor, MicroSD card slot, 2GB of RAM, and a nanoSIM tray.

If you've been waiting on pins and needles for tomorrow's HTC announcement, we've got official hardware information for you.
A few days ago, we posted a rumor we felt pretty confident in that would see "who" added to Google's "when" and "where" options for reminders. We now have another rumor, from a source familiar with the matter, which is also related to Google Now's ever-expanding functionality.
Update: at least one German gadget site has more evidence of an eminent Chromecast release, including retailers Amazon and Media Mart.
Our European readers have been waiting to get their hands on the Chromecast ever since Google announced its diminutive streaming gadget, and at least some of them will be able to soon - the UK is getting it on Wednesday. But what about the rest of the continent?
Google Now is a powerful tool. A step toward Google's vision of a Star Trek computer in the palm of your hand, Now is built to serve up information that you need, exactly when you need it, without you asking for it.
To that end, the service has seen many improvements since its debut. It will tell you when your favorite teams are playing, when you need to leave to make it to the airport on time, whether your plane is delayed, and plenty of info about your destination and surrounding attractions, among numerous other things.
Amazon has been expanding into just about every possible media sales segment in the last few years, with one notable exception: console-style video games. If a filing with the Agência Nacional de Telecomunicações (read: the Brazilian version of the FCC) can be believed, Amazon is looking to close that gap in its product lineup. A full game controller, with media controls and Android-style navigation buttons, was spotted there by Zatz Not Funny.
The Galaxy S5 is coming to store shelves in April, and it's bringing with it a new version of TouchWiz along with a full suite of Samsung apps. These aren't typically the pieces of software Android enthusiasts foam at the mouth to get, but with all the bajillions of devices Samsung pushes each year, we know there are many of you who get a kick out of some of them.
We've been wondering what that second camera on the back of the HTC M8 (a.k.a. "The All New HTC One") was all about since the first leaks arrived. If an Australian Telstra ad for the new device is to be believed, it is indeed intended to bolster the phone's low-light shooting performance. The advertisement spotted by GSMArena reveals a few things that we didn't already know, and it does indicate that the "Duo Camera" can "create vivid images even in low light."
Low light photography is always tricky, and it's particularly difficult on mobile cameras thanks to their generally small sensors and lenses.
Verizon may have taken forever to offer the current Nexus 7, but if this leak is to be believed, the carrier won't take nearly as long to pick up the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. According to a leaked internal document, the tablet is scheduled to become available on March 6th. It's not alone, either. The LG G Pad 8.3 is set to launch on the same day.
