Did Google Leak the Nexus 9 During Google I/O?

Google Material Nexus 9

After yesterday’s unbelievably long Google I/O opening keynote, Google published a lot of supporting documents. Some of those documents include the Android L Release’s own Material design and the supporting documentation. If you go through that documentation, you will notice that they have renders of familiar Google hardware. That includes the Google Chromebook Pixel and the Google Nexus 5. However, there is also an interesting device that appears to be an Android tablet sitting between them. That device actually fairly accurately represents the description given by rumors of the potential Nexus 9 tablet that is built by HTC and powered by Tegra K1. The above

Microsoft Pays People to Say Good Things About IE

Microsoft Logo

So, even though Microsoft categorically denies doing anything of any sort, I and many of you know that most of what Microsoft does is usually through 3rd parties like SocialChorus that are contracted to take all of the blame for Microsoft in the event that they say something wrong or get caught doing something wrong. And as long as there’s no smoking gun, Microsoft is basically off the hook.

However, nowadays Internet Explorer is fairly good and the only browser on Windows worth anything for touch. The guys and gals over at FireEye managed to discover this Zero Day Exploit and dubbed the entire operation, “Operation Clandestine Fox.” They claim that this zero day exploit targets IE9 through IE11 browsers, which make up about 26% of all browser users around the world which is pretty significant. Microsoft has also put out a security bulletin on

Microsoft releases IE8: Last gasp or a fresh start?

Ever since Microsoft overtook Netscape, its position on the browser market never looked so pale. IE is still used by majority of users world-wide, but market share started to slide with the launch of Mozilla Firefox. Opera is holding its also-ran position (and leading the mobile internet market), Google’s (unpolished) Chrome and Apple’s Surfari are only beginning to nimble the market share, but expect an explosion to happen in the next year. Browser wars are back, and they’re back in full strength: who is going to win? Mozilla Firefox leads the market share of alternative browsers and in some countries, such as Germany – enjoys

Germans test latest Matrox hardware

Point a finger at your brain and ask yourself, when was the last time you heard about a review of a Matrox graphics card? Yep, my thoughts exactly… see, telepathy works. Courtesy of legendary German site 3DCenter.Org, we can see what Matrox is actually… manufacturing these days. Fellow journalists spent some time with Matrox M9125 graphics card, and compared it to graphics cards from ATi, Nvidia, Intel and S3. Five-vendor GPU test… when was the last time you saw something like this? Agree, trip down the memory lane… Anyways, the boards that this card tested against were Radeon 3450, X4500, GeForce 7300GT and 8400GS and
