Were you eying Bowers & Wilkins’ P5 headphones, but put off by the initial $300 (now $250) sticker price and not so inclined to the in-ear C5? Someone at the company heard you, as we’re now getting the P3 for a more affordable $200. What changes when you pocket the extra cash? You’ll get aluminum and other hallmarks of buying the British outlet’s audiophile gear, but the cost trimming brings a special “ultra-light acoustic fabric” instead of sheepskin leather and a more portable folding design instead of the pivoting earcups found on the P5. Bowers & Wilkins is light on performance details, but it promises that the design will be comfortable for long listening sessions, and there are both universal and Apple-friendly in-line remotes to make your phone calls and skip tracks. Black- and white-hued versions of the P3 should be hitting American shops in June.
Avevamo annunciato diverse volte l’arrivo delle prime rom ufficiali CyanogenMod per HTC Sensation ed HTC EVO 3D grazie alle comunicazioni ufficiali ricevute sia via Twitter che su google+. Abbiamo dovuto attendere un giorno in più il loro arrivo a causa di un problema di compilazione ma eccole pronte finalmente per il download. Per tutti gli amanti delle rom CyanogenMod è ora possibile testare la prima versione per questi ultimi terminali android di casa HTC.
Suggeriamo al momento l’installazione di tali rom solo ed esclusivamente agli appassionati e agli smanettoni essendo ancora una prima versione con alcuni bug, in particolar modo a chi utilizza EVO 3D in quanto gli scatti e le riprese non vengono ancora fatte in 3D ed il bluetooth presenta qualche problema. Per il Sensation il problema maggiore di questa versione è rappresentato dalle riprese in full HD che portano ad un soft reboot dopo un paio di minuti. Per il resto ricordiamo che queste rom portano sui nostri terminali le ultime versioni di Google Android 2.3.5 e moltissimi miglioramenti. Per chi volesse seguire il progetto o testare già questa prima verisione ricordiamo qui il link per HTC EVO 3d e qui quello per HTC Sensation . Non dimenticate poi di riportare le vostre impressioni sul nostro forum dove trovate qui la stanza per evo 3D e qui quella per il sensation
Windows Phone’s latest iteration (codename Mango) is all about keeping it in the hood. We had a chance to sit down with a Windows Phone rep before today’s big reveal, and they let us in on a couple of new features that will most definitely set the OS apart — at least when it comes to navigating the tangled web that is the internet. We did get a quick glimpse at IE9, but the new browser isn’t much of a game changer — it supports HTML5, but still won’t deliver Flash or Silverlight compatibility. The real news here is in the Bing-powered search function, which lets users surf the vast expanses of the web four different ways, with a focus on the local.
Clicking the dedicated search button from the Windows Phone home screen takes you to a familiar Bing page, offering the visual, audio, and voice options we heard rumored earlier this month, along with a city scape icon. That skyline represents Local Scout, a function that focuses your queries on the neighborhood you’re in, providing location-specific results that highlight important information about establishments and events in your immediate area. Clicking through on any link brings up general information as well as reviews gleaned from popular user-generated sites. That’s not all that’s new, however, as Mango also offers some nifty tricks in its visual search. Instead of just snapping a barcode, you can actually use a shot of the product itself to bring up information about pricing, availability, and relevant apps.

If this image doesn’t have you completely dumbfounded, scroll down and watch the video. Sufficiently awestruck? Good. Now, for a little background on exactly how someone got a pile of Legos and a smartphone to solve the devil’s puzzle Megaminx. The aptly titled Megaminxer enlists the Mindstorms NXT kit to do the dirty work and an HTC Desire, running a custom Android app, as the brains of the operation. Said app uses the phone’s camera to take individual images of each of the puzzle’s 12 faces, then processes the information and sends a signal via Bluetooth to the NXT controller, which in turn goes to town. Unfortunately, there’s no explaining how they got the Android to dance like that, but, really, why ruin the magic?
Surely you remember the Kyocera Echo, that dual-screen Android 2.2 phone that Sprint unveiled way back in February. Well, if it managed to pique your interest, then you’ll be glad to know that Sprint’s thrown up quite the unique reservation page that will let you reserve the phone now for $200 (after a $100 mail-in rebate) to ensure you’ll have it on its April 17th release date. The company warns that there’ll be limited quantities, so if you want to be the only one in town rocking a dual-screen smartphone, hit the source link and punch in your info — and don’t forget to try your hand at a game of Bottle Bustin’ Bandits while you’re there for a chance to win one of these phones.
