Original Moto E

Alleged Moto E2 specs leak. Sports a 4.5″ screen

There has been rumours all over the web that the spec of second gen Moto E has been leaked. The major improvements are a bigger 4.5″ inch screen (no improvement in resolution though) and a probable Snapdragon 400 processor which would the be same as what’s on Moto G. Other specs remain the same like 5MP fixed focus rear cam, no front cam. The new Moto E2 will allegedly come with a variant having 4G support. This part is particularly confusing as Moto E is mainly focused on developing markets where the adoption of 4G is very low among budget conscious...

Free SSL certificate from CloudFlare for blogs. Is it worth it?

It has been a little over a month since CloudFlare started offering free SSL, or Universal SSL as they call it, to over 2 million websites using their free service. This essentially doubled the number of websites using SSL overnight, literally! Let us be clear about what we mean by free. As of now this service is free indefinitely like CloudFlare’s other services included in CloudFlare’s free plan. This is NOT a free trial for 90 days, which is like the industry standard of SSL providers. SSL is traditionally only used by eCommerce, social networks and email providers. And even...

Nokia Lumia 930 UI

Windows 10 comes to mobile phones. Same OS for desktops and mobiles.

Microsoft today announced via twitter that the future of its desktop OS and mobile OS would be the same. @Kalars07 We plan to upgrade all Windows Phone 8 devices to Windows 10 in the future — Lumia (@lumia) November 13, 2014 This is analogous to Ubuntu unifying its mobile and desktop platforms to one UI in its 14.04 release. The unification of mobile and desktop operating systems will surely boost the sales of Windows mobile devices(read Lumia). Windows is still the king in desktop while opensource Linux(Android) is dominating the mobile arena. The reason for Android’s popularity is its variety...

Key Differences between Huawei Honor Holly and Redmi 1S

Sensors: Huawai Honor Holly lacks the gyro sensor which would be essential to take photospheres using Google’s camera app. Both phones have all other basic senors like proximity sensor, magnetometer, and accelerometer. Screen: Huawei Honor Holly sports a 5 inch HD screen with 294 pixels per inch. Redmi 1S also have same HD screen but a little smaller measuring 4.7 inch.

Another key distinction here is Redmi 1S have Dragontrail screen protection which would prevent the screen from getting scratched or break easily. Memory: Both phones have 1GB...

Moto E gets a 700 rupees price cut for a limited period

Flipkart is giving a 10% flat off for Moto E which was launched last year. Moto E still one of the best value for money phone available in the Indian market. Last time a similar thing happened was Moto G(1st gen) getting a 2000 rupees price cut. Two weeks later Motorola launched Moto G(2nd gen). It is certainly possible that Flipkart is selling to clear off stocks of Moto E this generation. But as of now, there is no sign of a Moto E2 or Moto E(2nd gen).

After #BentGate, It’s Now #HairGate aka #BeardGate

Social media hasn’t been a good friend to Apple after the release of new iPhones; iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+. And now, a new problem is being trending on Twitter about how the new iPhones can possibly cause even balding. However we think that’s a big stretch. The problem is some users get their hair or beard struck in the seam between the glass screen and the aluminum back. When the call ends the hair gets ripped from the head. This only applies if the user has long hair or a beard. The #hairgate is trending on Twitter and there...

It almost feels like a science fiction project and rightfully so. After-all, the project is headed by former DARPA director, Regina E. Dugan. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of new technologies for use by the military. But what is really behind Google’s initiative? Is it just another way to monetize already booming smartphone market? Or, is it...
