The Moto G is one of the hottest new phones on the market and its OS, at least certain parts of it, has gone open source. Anyone looking to get a glimpse at the OS and kernel development for the Moto G can download the files from Motorola’s SourceForce page.
Move, a popular puzzle game app by Nitako that’s already been available on the iOS and Android for quite some time, has finally made its way onto the Windows Phone Store. The game works by moving dots that all move at the same time onto their target squares. Blocks get in your way to both hinder and help your advancement.
The video below will give you an in-depth look at the game and what it has to offer.
MapMyIndia is the leading navigation company in India that has been responsible for numerous location-based Windows Phones apps. Recently they released ReachMe, a location sharing app that allows users to tell the contacts they label as trusted where they are through the use of a link or PIN. The app is currently region-locked in India, but is an interesting concept that should soon be available in countries worldwide through various other apps that are sure to follow.
Last Friday, December 6th, Apple added a new feature to its Apple Store app that allows it to see where you are when you’re in one of its stores. Whenever you’re in a store the app will automatically located where you are in the store and send you targeted alerts in an attempt to better serve your needs.
What would you say if I told you that in a decade or so you could order anything online and have it shipped straight to your door in mere hours? Sounds like some farfetched tale that will take quite a bit of new age technology to complete right? Well Amazon, UPS, Google and many others are already working on it.
By the end of November BitCoins were reportedly worth around $1200. Now the currency is only worth a little more than half that. The change is due to China’s central bank deciding to prohibit the country’s financial institutions from processing BitCoin transactions, which has in turn caused all Chinese-based companies from halting their acceptance of BitCoins.
I don’t fully understand how BitCoin mining works, but the guys at KnCMiner apparently got it all figured out. They’ve created a machine they call Jupiter that they say is capable of mining BitCoins at 100 times the speed of their competitors.
It’s all made possible through four 28-nanometer chip-powered modular boards that are designed to keep going uninterrupted even if one of them fails. Each one is mounted with a giant fan that works constantly to keep the machine cool as it mines fast enough to make Snow White’s dwarfs jealous.
So as far as I can tell, we haven’t reported on PhoneBloks! It’s a new revolutionary idea of creating an easy to upgrade photo so you don’t have to keep buying a new photo year after year. Instead, you could just buy a new processor or whatever else your phone needs. You get to build your phone the way you want!
You may remember when we reported back in March that the 3Doodler had broken the $2 million mark on Kickstarter. Well the time has come for all the people who contributed, or at least contributed enough, to receive their copy of the device just in time for the holidays. Everyone else looking to buy the 3D printing pen for $99, which is quite reasonable, will have to wait until 2014, but wouldn’t it be nice to know whether or not the device even works?
Destiny, the next big game to come from Bungie, the creators of Halo, is set to launch on September 9th, 2014. Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 owners should get their first hands-on glimpse sometime during the summer when Destiny’s beta rolls around, with Xbox 360 and Xbox One users getting their crack at it shortly thereafter.
I haven’t written a single review since I started writing for Geeky Gadgets seven and a half months ago. (Yes, it’s really been seven and a half months.) The reason for that is because I don’t typically buy the latest and greatest gadgets as soon as they come out. But then the Nexus 5 arrived, and now that I’ve gotten it in my hands I figured it’s time to place something in the review category.
This review isn’t going to be super long or in-depth – I’ve admittedly only had the phone for a few days – but hopefully some of you will find it interesting, if not helpful.
I make a lot of comments and jokes about Windows Phone, but this is pretty cool. Windows Phone users now have access to the Moliplayer Pro, a video player that can play just about every kind of video file in existence. It’s especially useful for people with Windows Phones who have 1080p resolution displays because they can now easily play HD and BluRay movies and TV shows on their phone.
