The device features mediocre hardware which may allow it to compete in the currently aggressive smartphone market. Amazon’s access to massive amounts of data, in addition to their advanced cloud capabilities, really gives their new phone an advantage over competing devices – features such as unlimited cloud storage for photos, Mayday Support and Firefly showcase these capabilities. Mayday support allows Fire Phone users to instantly summon a video chat of a live customer support representative, device owners can then communicate with the
Recently, a popular French site by the name of Nowhereelse.fr leaked images of what they’re claiming is a “perfect replica” of the second-generation iPad Air. At first glance, the “replica,” which is likely just a plastic mockup, appears to be nearly identical to its predecessor.
Today, in an exciting (albeit relatively comical) announcement, the Unicode Consortium announced version 7.0 of the Unicode Standard. Okay, so what does that mean?

Today, Google decided to take further advantage of their power by forcing all musicians on YouTube to sign a contract for their up-and-coming Music streaming service. They threatened any independent artist who refused to sign by not allowing them to upload any kind of video, regardless of the musicians viewership – this act demonstrates a lack of respect for their users and an abuse of power of the online video monopoly. This is not a surprise given that just last year YouTube leveraged all of their users, forcing them to sign up for Google+ to allow them access to the new

A few days ago, Riot games announced that they’re working on a graphical update for the main map of League Of Legends: Summers Rift, which took many by surprise. It’s been quite a while since the developers made such a drastic change and in light of that fact, the revised map is still far from complete. Riot states that the changes will be demoed in the public beta environment soon, which most likely means that we’ll see the changes in the main client within the coming weeks or months. While the main structure of the map is more or less the same, the graphics look quite
