HTC One Walks The Street Of Times Square During Samsung’s Event

HTC One

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.”

You can view the video below.

Samsung released the next part of their teaser video of Jeremy, the secret messenger for Samsung Unpacked 2013. As any normal kid, once Jeremy got home he couldn’t wait to take another peek into the box.

As Jeremy looks into the box he shares that it’s “his favorite color” leading us to believe the Samsung Galaxy S IV will be available in various colors. Amazed by the bright lights coming from inside the box he says “It’s unreal, totally amazing”.

The Galaxy S IV was never shown, but their Unpacked event is in 4 short days.

Scout For iPhone Adds Location Sharing

Scout Logo

Scout for iPhone users, just keeps getting better as an update to the app has been released that allows users to share their location with family and friends and also send turn-by-turn navigation.

If you want to share your location you can with a tap on your iPhone screen. You can choose to share via text message, e-mail or Facebook.

The best part about sharing your location with family or friends is that they don’t have to have the Scout app. The shared location has a link to Scout’s HTML5 browser-based turn by turn navigation. As long as the person you are sending the location data to has a smartphone with iOS, Android or Windows Phones they can fully interact

“We’re always on the go – whether it’s our morning drive to work, taking our kids on an adventure for the weekend, or going out with our friends,” said Dariusz Paczuski, general manager of Scout at Telenav. Being able to easily discover local bands and venues, share them with our friends, tell our friends that we’re on our way, and know when they’ll arrive, are great examples of how we’re focused on making Scout even more helpful and more personal for each of our users.”

The update will also allow for you to share your ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) by sending out a text message through the app when you set your route. Scout even takes into account real-time traffic data.

TeleNav also updated their Scout.me homepage so that it is easier for users to search, save and share venues with family or friends. When saving favorites to your Scout.me account they will also save on your Scout app for you to access later.

If you don’t have Scout, check out the video below to see how it works and you can follow this link to the App Store to download the app and check it out yourself.

Developers will have the chance to start playing with the tablet version of Ubuntu on either the Nexus 7 or Nexus 10 starting this Thursday, February 21st when they also open up the developer preview of their smartphone OS.

Below is a video of Mark Shuttleworth of Canonical who goes into great detail of what Ubuntu will have to offer.

Apple Airs Two New iPad Ads

Apple Ad

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.

The ads are little different from other Apple ads, but like Tim Cook said, “We wouldn’t do anything we consider a great product” and with Apple’s new ads they let the product do the talking. We are just happy they haven’t brought back those “Genius” ads.

Glide Beta 2

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.
