Microsoft Office For The iPhone Makes It To The App Store


It’s simple enough: Microsoft Office for iPhone works with basic editing skills and allows the user to  save locally or to Microsoft’s cloud servers. You can also view and edit spreadsheets, docs and Powerpoint files, or do all of that with attachments pinned to emails.

In order for it to work, you need an Office 365 subscription (of course we do, Microsoft) and an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 6.1 (no iPad version yet) in the United States; global availability will happens sometimes later.

GS4 Active

If the current Galaxy S 4 isn’t up to par with your life standards, perhaps the rugged version will be? The Galaxy S 4 Active is everything the previous Galaxy S 4 was, sans the 13 megapixel camera (the Active uses an 8MP camera) and the 1080p display is based on LCD instead of OLED technology. The Galaxy S 4 Active is both water-resistant and dustproof, and will be $199 on contract.

For a quick recap, the S4 Active has Android 4.2, a 1.9GHz quad-core processor, a 5-inch 1080p TFT LCD panel, microSD slot with support for up to 64GB, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, a 2,600mAh battery and an 8MP rear camera with 2MP front-facing camera. Its weight is 150g (5.29 ounces) and is 9.1mm thick. Also, it’ll come in two colors: Urban Grey and Dive Blue.

AT&T will take pre-orders starting tomorrow.

Acer Aspire S7 Review: Hello, Skinny

Acer Aspire S7Acer has never been known as a super popular manufacturer of laptops. But then, the concept of Ultrabooks came along, and that all changed. Acer released the S7, and got props for creating one of the best super thin laptops running Windows 8 and using Intel Core technology. Enter, June of 2013, and a revision of that laptop has been announced: complete with an optional 2560×1440 display, bigger battery, and a new Intel Haswell processor, it aims to be the best in its category. However, just before the announcement, Acer sent me the current model without said improvements that will come out, later in the year. This is a review of Acer’s rise to Ultrabook popularity: the S7, first generation model.

Razer Black Widow Ultimate 2013 Keyboard Review

Razer Black Widow Ultimate 2013 ReviewThis probably the best straightforward keyboard that Razer USA currently produces. It’s the Black Widow Ultimate 2013. It’s everything your typical keyboard is, yet isn’t. Five programmable macro keys, along with variable backlit brightness, gaming profiles, and individual mechanical keys makes the Black Widows Ultimate 2013 a premium experience.

It really is made for gamers, but now isn’t it the time to find out if it really is good for games — and you know, typing?

Here’s The White Nexus 4

The White Nexus 4The Nexus  4 is pretty old now, after being launched in November of 2012, but that didn’t keep our curiosity away from the limited edition white model. It works just like the previous Nexus 4, in black, that I reviewed a few months back. The only difference between the two models is that the white Nexus 4 sports a white back side, and white sides.

Strangely, the front remains black, most likely to preserve the sense of immersion that comes along with have a screen showing deep blacks with black edges. Or, it could have been a supply/cost constraint. Regardless, we think the white Nexus 4 is pretty cool, especially with the free bumper that is being provided to early adopters of Google’s limited edition flagship handset. Also, in an effort to keep its mint condition, the screen protector hasn’t been removed, so it looks somewhat strange from the front.

More photos after the break.

Google Glass: When Torn Apart, It Still Looks Just As Cool

glass-teardown-exploded-top-thumbWell, it’s been a while since Google Glass has been available for Explorer program users and developers, but no one has been gutsy enough to take apart a $1,500 Glass prototype — until now, by Catwig. In the end, everything is rather simple: the Google Glass headset is just a ton of flexible components attached to a shell that just so happens to be fixed to the human head.

If you’re interested in specifics, what was found included: a custom Synaptics touchpad on the side which lets the user interact with Glass,a Google X-branded logic board, a TI OMAP4430 chip, 16GB of SanDisk flash, and an Elpida mobile DRAM chip. The battery is around 2.1 W in capacity — around 570mAh, if you convert it. Oh, and the display is 640×360 pixels in resolution.


Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom: A 16MP Camera With A Phone’s Body

galaxy-s4-zoom-This is the much-rumored Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom —  a 16 megapixel camera with 10x zoom, optical stabilization, and Xenon flash. The physical device has a dual-core 1.5GHz Exynos processor, 1.5GB of RAM and 8 gigs of internal storage. Obviously, a microSD slot is present for adding more space. To take your pictures, there’s a 4.3-inch screen which contains 960 x 540 pixels, powered by a 2,330mAh removable battery, and running on Android 4.2.2 . Meanwhile, a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC make up the rest of the cameraphone.

No word on pricing, but initial observations place it somewhere near the $600 mark.
