Leak: Sony Wants To Snap An Entirely Separate Camera To The Back Of Your Phone

Sony has a history of doing odd things with mobile devices, but this is pretty out there. According to Sony Alpha Rumors, which has a good track record on all things Sony camera-related, the company will soon announce a range of "lens cameras" that snap onto Android phones so you can take better pictures. It's every bit as strange as it sounds.

QX10_with_XperiaZ_1-1200_zps5b5d60f8

The lens cameras will actually contain almost everything you need to take a picture – a built-in sensor, Bionz image processor, WiFi/NFC, and an SD card slot.

SwiftKey Cloud Beta Bumped To v4.2.0.115, Brings Support For An Additional GMail Account, Improved Flow Responsiveness, And More

SwiftKey introduced Cloud Beta – a new feature that stores users' data in the cloud and syncs it across devices – a little more than two weeks ago, and so far the company has already pushed one update with a slew of bug fixes. Today marks Cloud Beta's second update in as many weeks, which brings several fixes and enhancements:

Full changelog and known issues for 4.2.0.115

Changes:

  • Now possible to personalize from a second Gmail account before personalizing from an earlier one has finished
  • Fix for crash when starting Gmail personalization
  • Increased responsiveness of Flow predictions (this should reduce the likelihood of the flowed word prediction changing right at the last second)
  • Handcent and Hangout Emoji entry fixed
  • Language models no longer backed up via Android back up if you have SwiftKey Cloud backup and sync enabled (this should save on network and battery usage)
  • Further fixes for crashes in the Cloud preferences
  • Disabled predictions in Pleco where requested
  • Removed SwiftKey account details from the Android Settings, as these were confusing when you had multiple installs side-by-side

Of course, it doesn't fix everything, so there are still a handful of issues that the SK team is currently working on:

Known issues:

  • If you re-add a word that you previously removed from predictions, it will not always get re-added across all your synced devices
  • The showerhead Emoji in GoSMS messes up input
  • Spanish inverted ?

The Hyetis Crossbow Is The First Swiss Smartwatch, Has A 41MP Camera, And Costs $1,200

No one makes watches quite like the Swiss, and the same seems to be true of smartwatches. While competitors tout the ability to check text messages and emails without having to pull out a phone, which is pretty convenient, or answer calls just by holding your hand to your ear, which is admittedly kind of awesome, the first Swiss smartwatch promises a 41MP camera. If James Bond were in the market for a smartwatch, he'd put down a pre-order for the Hyetis Crossbow.

[Hiring Trendy Celebrities] HTC Brings In Robert Downey Jr. For Marketing Campaign Mark 42
