The market for smartphones has grown to such an extent that people are no longer just interested in the features and apps. They keep an eye on each and every spec that has been upgraded in the device and what it offered to them. The companies are quick to jump on this aspect of their devices when marketing them. Often, they are able to take a minor feature of the smartphone and create such hype that it becomes the reason why most people decide to buy it in the first place.
This is true for the companies that are trying to compete with industry giants like Apple and Google. You won’t find Apple trying to sell the new model of the iPhone or a new feature they have added to it. They try to make the device appealing so that the people are automatically attracted towards it. This is the difference between the leading companies and the companies trying to make their mark in the market like HTC.

Once again, Lenovo has taken into priority that modern design is well, modern, and that if used correctly, can be extremely satisfying. Enter, the Thinkpad T413s ultrabook, which uses “graphite black”, a thin bezel, is 20.6mm thin, a polished trackpad, and a carbon fiber top with a magnesium exterior to make it look visually interesting while still meeting military-grade standards. On the inside though, it’s current-generation laptop parts: up to 12GB of RAM is nice (starting with just 4GB), typical Lenovo software with Windows 8, the comfortable isolated-style keyboard, a 14-inch 1600×900 matte screen, Intel HD graphics,and a dual-core 1.8GHz Core i5 processor (up to a 2.1GHz Core i7 is available).
Ports-wise, there’s a full-sized Ethernet and VGA ports, two USB 3.0 ports, a Mini DisplayPort, and an SD card slot. A 720p HD webcam, optional backlit keyboard, a base 320GB hard drive, and hybrid as well as SSD-only options fill in the rest of the options when buying the T413s, starting at $950 starting in April.
Another G-Shock. This particular watch comes from Casio’s Winter of 2012 collection, and sports fewer specs than the great Aviation G-Shocks that I’ve been reviewing for the past few months, but still manages to fit in a chronograph style while being magnetic and shock resistant. But does this make it a cool watch? The review after the break will tell you.

For those of you who love VESA’s well-known wall mounting systems for TVs and monitors, Apple finally has come to your creative and design-related needs: an iMac that can be mounted on a wall, thanks to an adapter available on the Apple Store. Prices range from $1,340 for the 21.5-inch iMac or $1,840 for the 27-incher.
Scientists at CERN have a small update that they thought you (and the rest of the world that’s interested) should know: that their purported finding of the Higgs boson “god particle” seems to be getting closer and closer to specific characteristics and formula that would classify it as the particle they’re looking for; as they said simply, the particle they’ve been working with is ”more and more like a Higgs boson.” The researchers weren’t very specific after that, which makes us sad/mad, but I’ll leave it at that.
Just hours from the press unveiling that I will be attending tonight in New York City for the Galaxy S IV, a Chinese forum called it168 has published images of the Galaxy S IV, in an incredibly clear and understandable set fo images. The specs from the leakers are purportedly stating that the Galaxy S IV is 7.7mm in thickness and weighs 138 grams. The screen is a large 4.99-inch full HD 1080p display, with an 8-core 1.8GHz Exynos 5410 processor accompanied by 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with microSD slot for expansion, and lastly, a battery with 2600mAh capacity.
Once more into the breach we’ll talk about what we think is the real Galaxy S IV — and that will be when we actually see it, come 7PM ET, tonight.
