The latest render from @evleaks shows a two-toned Nexus 5 with a white backplate, but the post’s text is even more revealing: “In white,” it says. “11/1.” It’s definitely a vague statement, but in light of Google Play’s recent product page leak, an early November launch would be right on schedule. The latest rumors and leaks promise a device with a 4.95-inch 1080p display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU and LTE available in both 16 and 32GB models and, apparently, in black or white. Reportedly starting at $349, it certainly has our attention. ... Read More »

Mega CEO: Forget anonymous e-mail. Think privacy (Q&A)

Mega.co.nz CEO Vikram Kumar (Credit: Mega.co.nz) The future of secure, private e-mail doesn’t lie in Silicon Valley, or Silicon Alley, or even in the Northern Hemisphere, but in New Zealand. At least, that’s what Mega.co.nz Chief Executive Vikram Kumar wants to turn into a reality. After Kim Dotcom’s Mega shook up the secure storage world, offering a mind-boggling, industry-leading 50GB of encrypted free space, the company startled the world again by announcing that it would be building an encrypted e-mail service — but only after the unexpected closure of Ladar Levinson’s Lavabit. In the wake of the unexpected secure e-mail service closures by Lavabit and Silent Circle, what does secure e-mail even mean? From his home in windy Wellington, New ... Read More »

Stop Watching Us eyes big rally against NSA surveillance (Q&A)

(Credit: Stop Watching Us) In protest of the National Security Agency’s surveillance program, thousands of people are expected to march on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

Rainey Reitman is the activism director for the Electronic Frontier Foundation and lead organizer for the Stop Watching Us rally. (Credit: Electronic Frontier Foundation) That document leak ...

Tesco Hudl review: Can a supermarket chain put out a decent tablet?

One may seem like a paragon of modernity compared to its 94-year-old rival, but the UK’s two biggest retailers have a lot in common. For starters, both Amazon and Tesco succeeded far beyond their original missions (bookseller and greengrocer, respectively) to become retail giants. Both understand the value of consumer data and exploit that information mercilessly. Finally, both sell dirt-cheap Android tablets in the hopes of maintaining a foothold in our living rooms, hearts, minds and, most importantly, wallets. In the UK, there are around 50 million people who don’t own a tablet or any other mobile computing device. That’s the group of people that Tesco is going after with the Hudl, an Android tablet that’s aimed squarely at ... Read More »
