In a live Yahoo Q&A session, Microsoft’s Larry Hyrb — better known as Major Nelson — confirmed that Ultra HD, or 4K, support is part of the package.
Hryb said, “Indeed. Xbox One supports both 3D and 4K.”
Forbes, Microsoft’s CVP of Marketing and Strategy Yusuf Mehdi noted that unlike the PlayStation 4, the Ultra HD support would include gaming, as well. If a game is rendered in 4K resolution, the Xbox One will play it: “There’s no hardware restriction there at all,” Mehdi said.
Samsung is slated to unveil the next Intel-based Galaxy tablet at Computex, which starts 4 June. It will run Android 4.2.2 and sport a 1280×800 display.
What’s odd is that Samsung is a chipmaking giant in its own right and considered an Intel rival in Android mobile devices. For example, its Exynos series of chips power the Galaxy smartphones and Galaxy tablets.
But it may have good reason to tap Intel technology. Continue reading

She painted the walls herself by hand. Continue reading
How can Android users learn new languages you ask?Well, it can be done with the help of the app in the above…a Multi-lingual app called Duolingo .Check out the details behind the build and user experience of this app:

Sony’s PlayStation Vita is getting a major content boost when the PlayStation 4 launches later this year, as all PlayStation 4 games will run on the Vita via Remote Play. The only exceptions offered by Sony Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida were, “unless the game requires specific hardware like the camera [PS4 Eye].” It also stands to reason that PlayStation Move-specific titles won’t run via Remote Play, nor anything else that requires peripheral hardware (the Buzz! series, for example).
