Perhaps one of the first things you learned in kindergarten was that you had five senses: sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch. But the actual number is probably way more than that, maybe in the 30s. And there’s a whole lot we don’t know about the senses that we do have.
We already had a pretty good idea what HTC's next flagship smartphone is going to look like (Spoiler alert: a lot like it's last flagship). But now, demo videos have leaked, on top of everything else. You can bet this is the real thing.
Mothers are responsible for the welfare of their children. This is something we assume is true and something that guides the behavior of women with kids. They are watchful. They are worried. They set boundaries: Go to bed at such-and-such hour. Eat a balanced breakfast. Follow these rules.
On Stage at the D11 conference, Google's Android chief Sundar Pichai confirmed rumors that an HTC One Google Edition running vanilla Android will be available on June 26th for $600. That means the best Android phone in the world will be available unlocked and without the often clunky HTCSense skin. Heck yeah.
HTC's Sense skin for Android has long been a bloated skeuomorphic mess, with aluminum ring pulls, flip clocks and fancy weather animations. If these leaked screenshot are accurate, though, that all looks set to change—for the better.
These rugs, which depict the five senses of touch, smell, sight, taste and hearing, seem to leap out as three-dimensional shapes as you look at them. Weirdly, though, they are in fact perfectly flat.
A coating of hairy electronic skin could soon help robots feel the slightest breath of air or detect the faint vibrations of a beating heart.
Android 4.0 (a.k.a. Ice Cream Sandwich) is the prettiest, most intuitive version of Google's mobile OS yet, but hardware manufacturers still insist on dirtying it up. Android skins are inevitable, but who does it best? See for yourself.
Robots aren't known for their gentle touch and thoughtful caress, but that could all be about to change. A team of engineers has developed a robotic finger that's capable of detecting textures—and it's more sensitive than a human hand.
Android is awesome and powerful, but it has, shall we say, a learning curve. That scares some people away. After all, iOS is so intuitive that babies can use it. Literally. But you're not a baby.
HTC is bringing its A-game in a big way. The One S was good, but the screen and radio were weak links. The One X aims to fix that. It brings a bigger, more beautiful screen, and LTE connectivity. It's beautifully designed. But is it enough to eclipse the best Android phones—or even the iPhone?
The old HTC is dead. Long live the new HTC, with fewer products and more attention to detail. The HTC One line heralds this new day. The first product to reach the U.S. is the One S, launching today on T-Mobile. But is it a worthy debut?
We knew it was coming, but it's nice to get the official details. HTC is bringing its Onesy-goodness to T-Mobile starting next week on April 25th. It'll run you $200 on contract, and it's a very nice piece of kit.
In a battle of wits, humans and rats are way more evenly matched than you'd think. While we obviously have an advantage in overall intelligence, our ability to read situations and make decisions is actually no better than a rat's.
While the One X may be HTC's beast of a flagship device, the One S is not far behind. It's packing a new Snapdragon S4 processor into one of the most solidly built phones I've ever put my paws on.
HTC's new flagship phone is an absolute monster. Quad-core 1.5GHz Tegra 3 processor, 4.7" 720p Super LCD2, 8MP f2.0 camera with its own image processor. I got to spend a little time with this thing, and it's the most excited I've been about a phone in a long time.
Humans are one of 60,000 species that share a 500 million year old common ancestor. This creature was the ancestor of almost every vertebrate species, but it had a sixth sense that most of its descendants long since lost.
Over the weekend it was revealed that some extremely popular HTC Android phones (including the EVO, EVO 3D and 4G, and the Thunderbolt) have a gaping security hole which would allow 3rd-party apps access to all of your info. Oops?
