Cosmic Watch Is A Beautiful Model Of The Universe For Your Phone Or Tablet

Posted: 03 Oct 2015 10:53 AM PDT

image )Cosmic Watch is not a watch face, or even a conventional clock app. It's an app that models the Earth, the solar system, and most of the familiar constellations In 3D specifically as they relate to both real time and any point in the past. It's also stunningly beautiful - you don't often see educational apps with such a focus on aesthetic beauty. The screenshots really don't do it justice; check out the video below:

The app is equally concerned with current astronomy and time-keeping and the more classical astrology, at least as it relates to the the real model of the universe - there's aren't any horoscopes telling you that you'll meet tall, dark strangers.

With the official release of Android 6.0 just a few days away, it looks like LG has already started working the update for its G3 and G4 phones.

HTC and Motorola have already revealed their plans to bring Android 6.0 Marshmallow to its devices and thanks to LG Korea's support page, we can see that the dropdown menu for the support documents lists Android 6.0 as an option.

It's also worth mentioning that LG was one of the first OEMs to bring Android 5.0 to its devices after public release (in Korea) so this just may be a sign that they could do it again with Android 6.0.

Android Marshmallow has remained a developer preview for Nexus devices for some months now, but given the complete build of Android 6.0 will rollout to Nexus devices some time next week, Motorola thought to announce which of its handsets they'll be working on, as well as those that'll be left behind.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow of course brings the latest features and innovations to the Android platform, including key features like Google Now on Tap for contextually aware info for just about anything you're viewing on your device, Doze for enhanced power saving while a handset is in standby, Android Pay — which with any luck should arrive some time next year — as well as direct sharing and volume controls ...

Specs leak for new Samsung 18-inch tablet

Posted: 02 Oct 2015 04:31 PM PDT

Samsung is rumored to be preparing a massive tablet for the market, and the specs for the massive device have now been leaked. The specs claim a display size of 18.5 inches, which sounds almost unusable, but we'll have to reserve judgement until it's in our hands.

The other specs are a 1080p display, an octa-core 1.6GHz Samsung Exynos 7 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of memory, a 2MP front facing camera, and a 5,700 mAh battery. While it isn't all that impressive, it should be more than enough to power that 1080p display. Battery life, on the other hand, may be short.

What do you think about an 18-inch tablet? Would you purchase one? Leave a comment!

Sprint to cut up to $2.5 billion in spending, resulting in future job cuts

Posted: 02 Oct 2015 04:17 PM PDT

Sprint isn't looking too good recently, and it shows from the latest decision by Sprint's new CEO. The company aims to save between $2 and $2.5 billion dollars in the next 6 months, which is quite a feat considering it spent $7.5 billion in a three-month span ending June 30.

One way to save this money is for the financial department to review all spending requests. Another is to cut jobs, which is inevitable according to the CEO. Unfortunately for those working for Sprint, jobs are on the line.

Considering the company hasn't turned a profit since 2006, cutting spending is important. On the other hand, building a better network (something Sprint is lacking in many important areas) is just as important to retain customers. Unfortunately, due to financial issues, Sprint will not be participating in the next wireless spectrum auction.

Things are looking bleak for Sprint, but if only for competition, we hope that the company can stay afloat.
