While the UI is pretty simple looking, it manages to get the job done and is packed with all the features you’d expect for what they offer by way of services.

Despite the much awaited launch of the Sony Xperia Z happening soon and rumors about Samsung’s Galaxy S4 increasing in intensity, another upcoming top-tier Android phone appears to be the star of the foremost headlines these days. We’re talking about HTC’s M7, the big guy that’s been rendered a bunch of times in the past week and that’s had quite a few specs and details spilled all around the web. The M7 puzzle is still far from completion, but fortunately we’re all set to put a big piece in place today – US availability. in accordance to @evleaks (who else?), HTC’s upcoming spearhead will be landing on no less than three of the four major carriers in America – AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. The number four, T-Mobile, is left out at this time, but our regularly nontoxic resource of rumors only tells us that TMO is “lacking concrete evidence”, so Magenta could still be in the mix. in case you ask us, T-Mobile absolutely needs a piece of HTC’s high-end smartphone pie, even when the OEM’s game could have seemed a bit off lately. At this time, there are only four HTC devices sold by T-Mo, two of which run windows Phone. Out of the other two, the One S is the only half decent Android, so it’s time for something new and hip, don’t you think?
As for the three US carriers supposedly “confirmed” to sell the M7, we have to say we’re a piece shocked of Verizon.
sizeable Red has continually been tight with HTC, but do the carrier’s clients actually need a sized down version of the Droid DNA with just a couple of added muscles? After all, the 5-incher has only started selling last November.
Alexandria, Virginia – The astronomy community is buzzing as a beehive – comet ISON finally lit up. Until recently it was humbly flying towards the Sun, showing the brightness in accordance with most pessimistic predictions. The brightness was slowly crawling to apparent magnitude of 8 (8m). However, on November 15th a bright flash raised the light of the comet to a limit visible to the naked eye.
On November 15th the claimed brightness was 6m. The next day skywatchers, mostly astronomy enthusiasts, were already talking of 5m and even 4m brightness.
6m is a minimal visible brightness of an object provided there is no light pollution and a clear sky. It should be noted that apparent magnitude is a logarithmic scale, and the difference between each step is approximately 2.5 times. A step of five units will mean a 100 times brighter object. That means that in two days the comet stepping from 8m to 5m became about 15 times brighter.
Apparent magnitude of 5m means that you can try to see the comet in the sky near medium-sized cities. A comet is a “smeared” (diffuse) object, so its brightness is not concentrated at a single point, like a star, but distributed over the area, so better yet get somewhere where there is neither smog nor bright lights around.
Photos with longer exposure will allow you to see the comet even in those circumstances where it is not visible to the eyes. However, if shooting from the city, you will see the comet itself but you can forget about the luxurious tail.
To find the comet, look near the horizon to the south-east, a few hours before sunrise. You can type ISON in search in Star Walk to get more accurate details for your location. With each passing day it will become brighter, but at the same time closer to the sun, so it will be harder and harder to see it.
We only have a few days before the convergence of the comet with the Sun, so it’s time to look for good optics and recall all the spells you know to disperse the clouds. November of course is not the best time for astronomical observations from our latitude, but it should be worth it.
A few words about the technical side:
If the abilities of the naked eye are not satisfactory, you can arm it with something. You can use any optical devices that allowing to zoom in on distant objects, be it binoculars, spotting scopes, or telescopes . To take a picture you can use any camera that allows to adjust shutter speed, any lens will do. You might want to use a tripod with the camera. Finally, if you do decide to go astro-photo-shooting, make sure to dress warmer, my experience with the comet Panstarrs in March tells me you might end up spending three or more hours in one place.
Also it might be worth reminding that we have a lot of man-made stuff flying in the sky just like a comet, so do not be confused:
Comet moves much slower than aircraft, it is singular and it is green. It is best to shoot the sky with a wide-angle lens with approximately same time intervals, then you can easily distinguish one from the other. The planes will quickly fade from sight, while the comet moves in sync with the stars.
Based on the trajectory of the comet we know that it will have a longer period of visibility after moving away from the Sun and closer to the Earth (Easy! It will not fall!) . However, there is an important “but”: we don’t know whether the comet will survive a close encounter with the Sun.
There is a well-founded fear that the Sun will destroy the comet and we will see a flock of small fragments at best, and at worst – a subtle cloud , like the one that turned the comet Elenin into.
Those who do not have the patience to wait for good weather in the morning and watch the comet with binoculars in hand , can follow it on pictures that are regularly uploaded to various astrophotographers’ websites and on Twitter. During the close encounter with the Sun the comet will be observed by NASA solar telescopes: STEREO, SOHO, SDO. You can get their pictures on websites or at Helioviewer.
Alternatively, you can use offered remote telescopes. Now is the best time for them.
Let us hope that the comet will survive the meeting with our star and will not go out immediately after the fly-by, and in December heavens will give us at least a few good days for observation.

No one knows the need for lighthearted fun more than drivers trying to navigate through traffic or driving through unfamiliar territory. That’s why it doesn’t sound so ridiculous that [#protected_0#], who specializes in trying to get drivers out of such situations as quick as possible, is bringing users a roster of celebrity voices to keep them company.
The now Google-owned startup has joined forces with Universal studios in order to give users choices for their driving partners. Instead of some boring, generic, computer-generated voice guiding you to your destination, you will soon get to choose one of your favorite celebrity’s voice, or at least someone famous.
First in line is American comedian Kevin Hart, just in time for his upcoming film, appropriately titled “Ride Along”. Users will get to hear Hart’s distinctive voice and light banter directing them to turn this way or that, take some exit, or avoid some rather odd traffic obstacle. Watch the video below to see what’s in store for you when you bring along Kevin Hart for the ride.
You can get this new set of voice commands by going into Waze’s Sound settings and Selecting “English – Ride Along” as the Voice Language. To promote the upcoming film, users will be able to make advanced ticket purchases for Ride Along, showing in theaters next month.

If you’re interested in BlackBerry financials, it’s soon that time again for BlackBerry to converse to investors. This time around, it could be all about their
On January 26th of 2013 cellphone locking in the United States effectively became illegal, at least without permission from your existing carrier. Although most carriers will unlock your device for a fee, there’s still a lot of confusion on the matter.
Since January, we’ve seen petitions calling for the ability to freely unlock mobile devices in the United States, and there has even been proposed legislation targeting the issue.
For the FCC’s part, they have long supported the idea of creating clear rules and guidelines when it comes to unlocking mobile devices and they have even been actively working with the CTIA for over eight months to create an amendment in its consumer code that will address our rights to unlock our phones and tablets. The problem is that these talks have gone nowhere.
Wheeler basically demanded that the CTIA work immediately with the FCC to make a change or he warned that the FCC will be forced to take regulatory action.
The good news is that FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler isn’t going to let the CTIA continue to drag its feet. In a letter to the CTIA’s president Steve Largent, Wheeler basically demanded that the CTIA work immediately with the FCC to make a change or he warned that the FCC will be forced to take regulatory action.
According to Wheeler’s letter, the FCC has five key points that they want the CTIA’s amendment to address:
- provide a clear, concise and readily accessible policy on unlocking
- unlock mobile devices for legitimate owners of those devices once their service contract has been fulfilled
- notify customers when their devices are eligible to be unlocked and/or automatically unlock those devices for free
- unlock devices or provide an explanation of a denial of any unlock requests within two days
- unlock devices for military service men and women upon deployment
Apparently the CTIA and FCC are already in agreement on all of the above issues, except for point number 3. So it comes down to this: the CTIA is perfectly fine with unlocking mobile devices and is even okay with making the policy clear — they just don’t want to be forced to tell anyone and they don’t want to have to do it for free.
If you’re worried that Wheeler will concede and end up dismissing this particular key point, don’t be. The FCC Chairman’s letter makes it clear that they aren’t budging.
So when will the FCC act if the CTIA continues to avoid the issue of phone unlocking? Judging by the letter, they have until December. After that, it’s very possible that the FCC will look to other ways of bringing about changes to our current mobile device unlocking policy.
Enough time has passed, and it is now time for the industry to act voluntarily or for the FCC to regulate. Let’s set a goal of including the full unlocking rights policy in the CTIA Consumer Code before the December holiday season.
Of course, even if you unlock your device without your carrier’s permission, it’s not like the FBI is going to come knocking at your door. So for most of us, cellphone unlocking is probably a non-issue.
The problem is that the guidelines on unlocking aren’t clear, and so less tech-savvy individuals are unlikely to even bother with unlocking their devices or switching carriers. Another issue is that you have to pay to unlock a device through your carrier, even if you already bought the device in full or carried out any contractual obligations.
What do you think, will the CTIA and FCC be able to reach an agreement in time for the holidays or is this an issue that will continue to drag on well into next year?
The Google Now easter eggs just keep coming. This time, Google takes a SciFi technique to their amusing and games. in case you get into Google Now and ask it “When am I?”, the outcomes might surprise you. Google Now really has this contextual facts thing down. rather then get confused and basically provide net results, Google Now’s calming voice tells you “The present, of course. TARDIS functionality is nonetheless undergoing development.
Sorry. ” Dr.
Who enthusiasts will, of course, get the joke. What we here at Android Community find are clues. Deep rooted clues, offering a glimpse at Google’s future, and maybe ours, too. To start, we’re now confident that the rumored “space elevator” is actually a time machine. We also be taught from those clues, which lay out like breadcrumbs to the truth, that Googlers operating at Google X labs mostly watch Dr Who and try to emulate what they see. Sergey Brin, thankfully, is still Tony Stark — that’s irrefutable.
Really, it’s just a fun little trick Google built in to entertain us, if only for a minute. It’s also good to see Siri isn’t the only one with snappy comebacks these days. We really like that on best of the voice readout, we get results for whatever having to do with “time”, like Time magazine, or Google+ postings mentioning time. Even in jest, Google Now is still really functional.
