Samsung Galaxy S5 India launch event scheduled for March 27

Samsung is all set to launch the Galaxy S5 in India on 27 March. As of now, there is no word whether the Samsung Gear 2, Gear Neo and Gear Fit will also be launched in India on the same day.
Sammy Hub first reported that Samsung will unveil its Galaxy S5 in India on March 27; however, NDTV Gadgets has independently confirmed that the launch event will see the new flagship smartphone.
Update: Samsung has officially sent out invites for the event on Thursday.
However, it's worth pointing out that the Galaxy S5 will be available in India starting 11 April 2014 - the same date as Samsung had announced as global availability (150 countries) at its Galaxy S5 unveiling at MWC 2014.


Microsoft: Here's $100 if you drop Windows XP

April 8 is the day support for XP ends. So, Microsoft is reaching into its bag of discount tricks to get users to drop the decade-plus old operating system.
If you own a PC with XP and upgrade at the Microsoft Store, you get $100 off, 90 days of free support, and a "free data transfer," as spotted by Neowin.
The offer includes a new PC or Surface device priced at $599 or more and excludes Surface 2 "and some PCs," Microsoft said.
And you have to make an online purchase with a Windows XP machine or take an XP PC to a physical Microsoft Store.
wants to "make things better" for users without touch screens.
So, if you hail from the mouse-centric world of XP, the Windows 8.1 update should be the most palatable Windows 8 to date for XP users.
Those changes include new right-clickable context-sensitive menus, the ability to pin Metro apps to the Desktop task bar, and adding dedicated search and power buttons to the Start screen.
Meanwhile, the countdown for the end of support for XP continues. "There will be no more security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system," as Microsoft has made amply clear.

Apple considering a Spotify rival and iTunes Android app

Apple is in negotiations with senior executives at record labels about launching an on-demand streaming music service that would compete with Spotify and Beats music, according to a report by Billboard. Citing three unnamed sources, the publication said the "exploratory talks" are right now in very early stages.
The report also said Apple is mulling creating an iTunes Store app for Android, bringing the property to enemy turf. Apple did not return a request for comment. We'll update this post if we hear back.
The considerations come at a trying time for iTunes. According to Nielsen, downloads on the platform are down 13 percent from the week of March 9, and digital track sales are down 11 percent from last year.

Fitbit Now Faces a Class-Action Suit in Rash Fallout

A month after Fitbit issued a recall of its fitness-tracking bracelet following complaints of blisters and rashes, the startup now faces its first lawsuit.

The suit, filed on Monday in the Superior Court of California in the County of San Diego, is seeking class-action status and alleges the company misled consumers in promoting and advertising the Fitbit Force device.

The suit calls for Fitbit to notify every person who has bought the Fitbit Force device in the state of California, and to arrange to refund the $130 cost of the device, plus tax and any shipping fees. It also calls for Fitbit to provide a full disclosure of the cause of the wrist irritations.

10 Harvard Business School Startups You Should Know

You may not need a degree to start a great company, but many founders have degrees — advanced degrees — from top business schools. One such school producing tech startup founders is Harvard Business School — some of the most successful startups that came out of it include Gilt Groupe, Rent the Runway and Birchbox.

At Harvard Business School, student ambitions aren't what they used to be. In the old days, the top program pumped out management consultants and investment bankers. Today, entrepreneur in residence Jules Pieri says she has to counsel students to not feel guilty if they don't start a business on the side while in school.

Microsoft to Launch Surface Power Cover - Review

The accessory that functions as both a keyboard as well as an external battery is more than double the thickness and weight of the Type Cover 2.
 However, the Power Cover's battery life will be up by 70%, adding up to 30Wh to the tablet.
 According to the Verge, while the typing experience on the Power Cover will be similar to the original Type Cover, it will not include the backlit improvements that the Type Cover 2 ships with.
 Meanwhile, the software giant is taking preorders for the Surface Power Cover in the US, Canada, and Japan and it's priced at 199.99 dollars with a shipping date of March 19th. (ANI)


Samsung Galaxy S5 to be cheaper than Galaxy S4 at launch: Report

Samsung finally took the wraps off its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, amidst much fanfare at MWC 2014 in Barcelona.
The South Korean manufacturer at the event however, did not reveal a price for its Galaxy S5. According to a Korean report, Samsung is in talks with various international mobile carriers, before it announces an official price.

Phone Arena, citing a Korean publication, has claimed that Samsung is considering pricing its latest 2014 flagship lower than the competition, such as the Sony Xperia Z2. Further, if the Korean report is to be believed, the company might price the Galaxy S5 lower than the company's 2013 flagship, the Galaxy S4 (launched in India at Rs. 41,500 last year).

More Nokia X Android smartphones on the way despite Microsoft deal

While most were surprised by Nokia's move to release an Android-based smartphone given the impending acquisition of its mobile phone business by Microsoft, the Finnish mobile giant insists it's business as usual.
Jussi Nevanlinna, Vice President for Mobile Phone marketing for Nokia, answered a series of questions, including one that directly addressed the 'strange' timing of the announcement.
"I can't speak on Microsoft's behalf; what I can say is our strategy with Mobile Phones has been, and remains, connecting the next billion," said Nevanlinna. "Microsoft is equally focussed on 'mobile first; cloud first'."

Nokia Lumia 525 review

Nokia is trying to be something to everyone with its current lineup of Lumias - they come in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials and colours. However the nature of Windows Phone as an OS hasn't made it easy for Nokia hit all the right price points. Nokia's devices were either too premium or too weak to capture the interest of buyers in the critical sub-Rs. 10,000 mass market.

That started to change with the introduction of the Lumia 520. With its low price, bright colours and unique design, the Lumia 520 was a breath of fresh air in a dull market segment overflowing with similar-looking Android phones from second-tier brands. According to a recent report, the Lumia 520 accounts for nearly 45 percent of all Windows Phone devices sold in India, and just over 25 percent worldwide.

Shifu review

One of the big upsides of using an Android phone is the sheer scope of customisation that is available to users. Rooting your phone and choosing a completely different version of the operating system isn't hard, but otherwise there is a whole laundry list of apps that can change everything from the way your phone looks to the way it works.
Shifu, by Delhi-based The Signals, is one such app, which lets you outsource the job of remembering what's important and when to do it. The app keeps running in the background and tracks how you're using your phone. It also requires access to your phone's calendar. So it knows, for example, that at 9AM every day, you're traveling from home to office, and it knows that you're going to take half an hour to get there.

The developer claims that it can even analyse your commute patterns (detect if you've taken the metro and therefore have time to read, for example) and make suggestions from your to-do list based on all these facts. What makes it powerful is that it's simple and easy to set up, and as you keep using the app, it starts to build patterns based on your usage, and make suggestions accordingly. If there's any actions that you make regularly, then Shifu will start to suggest them to you based on a predictive algorithm, when it thinks you're likely to want to repeat that task - something like calling your driver every evening when it's time to leave office, for example.

Samsung Galaxy S5 variant with metal body, QHD display coming in May: Report

Samsung Galaxy S5, which was unveiled in Barcelona at the sidelines of MWC 2014, could soon have company in the form of a premium variant that could launch in May.

A new report emerging from Korea has claimed that the South Korean manufacturer will announce a new premium line-up of smartphones dubbed Galaxy F and a Samsung Galaxy S5 variant sporting metal body and beefed up specifications that the leaks had indicated, would be its first member.

The report claims that premium Galaxy S5 will sport a Quad HD display and the rear camera will feature OIS (optical image stabilisation), a feature that is missing in the Samsung Galaxy S5 unveiled earlier this week. In addition, the report claims that Samsung, which has been using plastic body for its devices, will finally change gears and introduce a metal chassis for its alleged Galaxy F smartphone range, in-line with previous reports. An earlier report had even claimed that a Galaxy S5 variant featuring QHD display has entered mass production.

Tipster Ricciolo has also claimed that due to the HTC M8 (codename for the HTC One successor) Samsung's 'luxury' Galaxy S5 variant will be announced in May. The tweet said, "Due to M8 shipping in april,you will see the LUXURY S5 version with metal+exy+better screen in about 2 months from now on."

App Converter Bridges Tizen-Android Divide

The first Tizen phones may still be on the horizon, but at least one software provider is already planning ahead. This week at Mobile World Congress, Infraware Technology debuted software that can port Android apps to Tizen.

Both Android and Tizen are based on open source Linux, of course, but that doesn't mean their native apps are compatible. With that in mind, Infraware's Polaris App Generator is designed to enable Android applications to operate on the Tizen mobile OS without additional development or customization.

Boeing Unveils Suicidally Secure Smartphone

Boeing this week filed an application with the United States Federal Communications Commission for a secure Android smartphone called the "Black" that will self-destruct if anyone tries to physically open the case.
The company will offer it to the U.S. defense and security communities.
The Black has embedded hardware security features, can be configured through software policies, and has endless modularity capabilities, according to Boeing.

"With hardware encryption and other security solutions, you can significantly reduce the potential threat of attacks," Jim McGregor, founder of Tirias Research, told TechNewsWorld. However, "unless you're willing to limit the functionality of the device and/or its services, there will always be some threats."

Imagination, Apple graphics tech supplier, talks future

John Metcalfe, executive vice president and COO at Imagination Technologies, graphics chip supplier to Apple, chatted with CNET for a few minutes about the future.
Imagination's graphics chip technology -- which must manage, among other things, the millions of pixels on the display -- has been used consistently by Apple in its mobile products, and Imagination's technology appears prominently in the iPad Air, iPad Mini Retina, and iPhone 5S.
I asked Metcalfe in a recent interview about the future of its graphics chips and, by extension, technologies that could appear in future Apple products -- though the latter is obviously only a decision that Apple can ultimately make.

Tim Cook: Apple TV did over $1B in 2013 revenue

While the iPhone and iPad have come to dominate Apple's business, the television has often been relegated to an afterthought for the company. So much for Apple TV being just a hobby, said Chief Executive Tim Cook.
"That hobby was over a billion dollars of revenue last year," Cook said during the company's annual meeting with shareholders here. "It's a little hard to call it a hobby anymore."
The billion-dollar figure includes content sales conducted by Apple on the platform -- like movies and TV shows -- and not just hardware sales of its set-top box. At Friday's meeting, Cook did not specify the breakdown between the two revenue streams.
Still, the milestone means the product is getting attention from consumers. A little over a year ago, Cook announced that in the first quarter of the 2013 fiscal year, the company sold more than 2 million Apple TVs, up from 1.4 million a year before. (Although it's worth noting that Apple's first quarter includes results from the holiday shopping season.)

Chrome Encourages Searchers to Speak Up

Google has added hands-free voice search to the latest beta version of the Chrome Web browser.
Users need not have to interrupt messy housework and first wash their hands in order to search for a recipe for homemade glass cleaner, for example. All they need to do is open a new tab or go to the Google homepage, say the words "OK Google," and dictate their search terms.
To enable the feature, users need to click the mic icon on the Google home page and then click on the "Enable OK Google" prompt.
