Briefly: Spotify Taste Rewind, Amazon patents ear-based unlocking

06/15, 10:03am

Spotify Taste Rewind suggests songs from previous decades

Spotify is trying to get its users to discover older songs they may like, by launching a promotional site. Taste Rewind allows users to select three artists from a list that they have recently played on Spotify, reports VentureBeat, with the site then providing playlists of songs the user may enjoy from each decade between the '60s and the 2000s. While a neat software toy that may help introduce younger listeners to older tracks they could enjoy, the results do not apparently cover the entirety of Spotify's catalog, and can come up with some odd suggestions. For example, a test using Nicki Minaj, Skrillex, and Ellie Goulding brought up a playlist for the '60s headed up by Leonard Cohen.

This week, we will explain the chief advantages of unlocking your iPhone, or other smartphone, if its not already, and why you should do it as soon as possible -- even if you never plan to leave your home country.

Review: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

05/21, 7:59am

Samsung delivers its best smartphone, but is it enough?

The Samsung Galaxy S6 range is a critical component in Samsung's flagging smartphone strategy. With sales of its high-end smartphones being sapped by intense competition from Apple's larger iPhone 6 models, and sales of its mid-range and low-end smartphones being attacked from all sides by the cheaper Chinese competition, the success of the Galaxy S6 is vital to the company reversing its fortunes. The Galaxy S6 Edge is potentially the more interesting of its two Galaxy S6 models -- both of which share identical specs on paper -- as the Edge features a more adventurous design with a curved version of its Super AMOLED display. So can Samsung claw back market share with its new smartphone, and return high profitability to its mobile division? Read on in our full review of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

Hands On: Asus Zenfone 2

05/19, 9:18pm

Asus Zenfone 2 is a great value Android smartphone

The Asus Zenfone 2 has just landed in the US, and after getting our hands on it, we think it is yet another mid-range competitor that is likely to give Samsung a real headache. While we are definitely fans of high-end smartphones, we are much less keen about the inflated price-tags that come with them. For the subset of users who don't necessarily want or need all the cutting-edge features, or who don't want to enter into long-term plans, there is a growing array of Android-powered options that have both genuine appeal and capability. The Asus Zenfone 2 is one of these devices, and warrants a closer look. Read on to see why we are excited to see this handset get a surprise local launch.
