LG wasn’t the only company that decided to crash Samsung’s Event in Times Square, New York. HTC sent some reps along with the HTC One to grab some of the attention away from The Galaxy S 4. The reps showed off the sound quality and “ultrapixel camera” on the handset.
A lot of the viewers were impressed with what they saw, a lady shared “Better than Samsung”, a gentleman talked about how the handset looked saying “It’s slick, smooth, I’m gonna tell you something, it’s sexy!” and another guy even said, “I might have to switch from my iPhone.”

Apple has two new iPad ads for both the iPad and iPad Mini. The ads are named “Together” and “Alive”. In both ads there is music playing in the background with a series of words flashing and different apps explaining the words.

What do you get when you take the idea of a push to talk, video chat and an iPhone? You get Glide, the world’s first video walkie talkie type of service that allows you to keep in touch through short video messages.
Glide allows you to broadcast up to 42 seconds and if your family or friends are on-line, they can watch you broadcast in real time and respond quickly. If they aren’t able to watch the video right away they are able to go back through the chat history and watch the video.
Glide messages are saved to Glide’s cloud, which is perfect because you don’t have to worry about space being taken up on your phone or iCloud. You’re even able to create group chats or add friends and family to an existing chat.
You can take a look at the video below for more information on Glide. If you want to check out the app go to Glide.me to sign up for the beta.
