Samsung Takes Hilarious Potshots At Apple's iPad And iPhone Ads In Two New Commercials

Samsung Takes Hilarious Potshots At Apple's iPad And iPhone Ads In Two New Commercials

Samsung's advertising has been somewhat hit or miss lately, ranging from pretty decent scifi ads for the Galaxy Gear to cringe-worthy infomercials for the same product. But it looks like there's been something of a shift in the company's promotional direction, or at least in the way that it responds to Apple's sometimes hyperbolic TV ads. Check out this new one-minute spot for the Galaxy TabPRO 10.1.

The ad plays up the TabPRO's high-resolution screen with a better aspect ratio for movies versus the iPad Air, plus its ability to fit multiple apps on the screen at once, which has been a staple of TouchWiz for a while.

CyanogenMod Unifies Several Carrier ROM Builds For The Galaxy S III, S4, And Note 3

CyanogenMod Unifies Several Carrier ROM Builds For The Galaxy S III, S4, And Note 3

Most custom ROMs require separate builds for separate carrier variants - one for an international model, one for an AT&T model, one for a Verizon model, and so on. CyanogenMod is trying to consolidate some of its most popular builds so that a single ROM ZIP file will work across several various device variants. Last month the CM team combined three HTC One builds, and today they're doing the same for Samsung's Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy Note 3.

Samsung Makes The Galaxy Note 3 Neo's Open Source Kernel Files Available For Download

The Neo is a more affordable version of the Galaxy Note 3 that comes with a few compromises, most notably regarding its screen and camera. Samsung officially announced the handset at the end of last month and eventually revealed that it would not come to the US or the UK, but it would still be available in many other markets across the globe. The Neo hasn't launched yet, but Samsung has now made the device's kernel source files available to all.

Qualcomm Toq Smartwatch And Companion App Updated To v1.3 With Activity Point Tracking, Fix For Annoying Notification Bug, And More

Qualcomm Toq Smartwatch And Companion App Updated To v1.3 With Activity Point Tracking, Fix For Annoying Notification Bug, And More

The Qualcomm Toq occupies this awkward space in the smartwatch race. Like the Pebble, it uses a display similar to e-ink that sacrifices fancy animations and responsiveness for battery life, only it manages to one-up its competitor by supporting more colors than black and white. Unfortunately, at $349, it's even more expensive than the already ludicrously overpriced Galaxy Gear. Yet for people who purchased one anyway, version 1.3 introduces new features and major bug fixes that should make using the watch a more pleasant experience.

Sprint Expands Direct Connect Push-To-Talk Functionality To The Galaxy S4, Note 3, LG G2, G Flex, And More

Sprint has been marketing push-to-talk functionality (a walkie-talkie style function that's popular with business users) since long before Android came into being. Though the feature isn't nearly as common as it once was, Sprint seems ready to keep it going with an update to the official Android app. The Direct Connect service is now compatible with a handful of new phones, most notably headliners like the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, and LG G2.

Samsung Russia Announces Galaxy S4 And S4 Mini 'Black Edition' With Galaxy Note-Style Faux Leather Back

Samsung has become that one friend you've got who suddenly decides he wears a fedora. No matter how many times you tell him that he looks less like a debonair time traveler than a guy who raided his grandfather's closet, he just won't take it off. Russian blog Hi-Tech Mail spotted the new Galaxy S4 'Black Edition' on Samsung's Russian page this morning, and a similar variant of the S4 Mini was later found.

PSA: KitKat Leak For AT&T Galaxy Note 3 Lacks 'Tap And Pay', Only Allows Mobile Payments Through Isis

PSA: KitKat Leak For AT&T Galaxy Note 3 Lacks 'Tap And Pay', Only Allows Mobile Payments Through Isis

Now that a KitKat build for the Galaxy Note 3 has leaked, people have started reporting new things that they're finding. Though most of the major features of Google's latest Android version are present, the "tap and pay" option is conspicuously absent. Further, it appears host card emulation has been disabled altogether. This is curious given the fact that Isis Mobile Wallet, which is partially backed by AT&T and nowhere to be found on the official Android 4.3 builds, is preinstalled on the leaked firmware.
