Do you enjoy playing Angry Birds on your Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note? If you own a Samsung smart TV, you’ll be able to play the game there as well. The game will also be available for consoles.
Samsung Korea announced that they have been working hard with Rovio to launch the game for Samsung’s smart TVs by this month. Since these TVs use motion control technology, the game can be played by simply waving your hands.
The app is coming to the Samsung TV app store and will be available for Samsung’s ES7000, ES8000, and ES9000 smart TVs.
Can’t wait to play Angry Birds on your Samsung smart TV? Give us your thoughts.
Google recently unveiled the Nexus 7 running the latest version of Android (Android 4.1 Jelly Bean). It seems, however, that the new tablet shares a similar feature to the iPad. This is a magnetic screen on/off sensor.
Android Police discovered the unadvertised feature. It switches the device on and off once a magnet is placed near the bottom left hand corner of the tablet. Apple first used this feature on the iPad 2, which allows the device to switch on and off with the Smart Cover. Does this mean that Google is planning to launch similar covers for the Nexus 7?
If ever Google plans to launch covers that make use of these magnetic covers to switch the device on and off, don’t be surprised if Apple files a lawsuit against the search giant.
If you own a phone such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 or iPhone 4S with O2, you must have noticed that everything seems to be up and running.
After almost a day of voice and data outages, their issues seem have been resolved. Speaking to CNET UK, O2 said, “Our tests show that 2G and 3G services are now back for all affected customers.”
The question is, should you be compensated for a day’s worth of lost service?
CNET UK asked You and Your Rights (a consumer rights site) whether affected customers should be compensated. The site said, “O2 provide their customers with a service and those customers rely on that service. It must therefore follow that if O2 fail to provide the service customers must be compensated.
“Why should O2 customers pay for the two days where they simply could not use their phone? We are calling on O2 to recognise this in their customers’ next bill, with some form of discount for the interrupted days.
“There will be some customers who actually suffered a loss due to the problems as they could not conduct their day-to-day business during this interrupted period. Those people should keep a detailed record of the problems that they have experienced and put their complaint in writing to O2.”
If you feel that you deserve compensation, write to firstname.lastname@example.org. If this doesn’t work, Money Saving Expert says, “Even if O2 refuses automatic refunds, it will be worth making a claim. If you get nowhere with O2 you can take your complaint to the Ombudsman Services.”
We’re you affected by the O2 outages? Are you seeking compensation? Let us know through a comment.
HTC (makers of the One X) is planning to make a tablet that will rival devices such as the iPad or the Amazon Kindle Fire. Speaking to PC Advisor, the Taiwanese phone giant said that the upcoming slate will have “something unique to offer”.
Currently, HTC has created one tablet the Flyer. Unfortunately, it failed to make an impact on the market. These days, however, manufacturers are starting to favour making smaller and cheaper tablets. It all started with the cheaper and highly popular Amazon Kindle Fire. Now, Google has launched the quad-core Nexus 7, which runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Its possible HTC is looking to do the same. The question is, what “unique” feature does this tablet have to offer? We’ll just have to wait and see.

If you own a device such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 or iPhone 4S with network operator O2, you must have experienced voice and data outages.

Speaking to TechRadar, an O2 spokesperson said, “We are currently seeing a problem on our network affecting some of our customers, who will have difficulty making or receiving calls, sending texts or using data.
