High-definition version of Motorola’s RAZR in the works

Monday, April 16th, 2012

The name DROID RAZR HD has appeared in the EXIF data from a series of images uploaded to Picasa by a Motorola employee. The EXIF data shows that the handset is running Android 4.0.3 and its camera is equipped with a f/2.4 aperture camera. The photos in question were uploaded by Vic Yu, who is a software engineer and program manager at Motorola Mobility according to his Google+ and LinkedIn profiles. Last month, the first image of what was believed to be the unannounced DROID Fighter surfaced on a Chinese forum. The handset is said to be equipped with the same massive 3,300 mAh battery that is found in the RAZR MAXX and a 4.6-inch high-definition display. The phone also lacked the Android navigation buttons found on earlier RAZR models, suggesting that it makes use of the on-screen buttons found in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The DROID RAZR HD could possibly arrive on Verizon Wireless as the DROID Fighter, although nothing is confirmed for the time being. It should be noted that EXIF data can easily be manipulated, but an image of the data can be found after the break.

USB mass storage support coming to Xbox 360 on April 6th

Friday, March 26th, 2010

We had a pretty firm idea that this was happening, but now Major Nelson has gone and made it official: mass storage is coming the Xbox 360 at long last. There will be a system update on April 6th, which will allow up to two simultaneous USB flash drives plugged into the system, which will be capable of storing profiles, game saves, demos, “and more.” The maximum size supported is 16GB, and even though regular USB hard drives will be supported, they’ll be up against the same size cap, and performance will suffer as well. You’ll have to manually format a USB device for use in this way when plugging it into the 360, but Microsoft will be partnering with SanDisk for a branded drive in May that will come preconfigured. Also tweaked is the new memory management screen (what convenient timing!) which should make shuffling around these files less of a chore. Check out some screenshots below.

[Thanks, Jeff]

Facebook to use QR codes for new location-based service?

Friday, March 19th, 2010

qr-code-wallscape-london

Without warning or explanation, non-functional QR codes began appearing on random Facebook profiles earlier this week.  After a few days of speculation, a new rumor has surfaced to give meaning to these scannable boxes of black and white squares. According to the latest leaked information, the QR codes will reportedly play a role in Facebook’s upcoming mobile application which will utilize codes for a new location-based service. Similar to and perhaps even in conjunction with Gowalla and Foursquare, these QR codes would let you check-in at businesses, like your local pub or favorite restaurant, and alert your Facebook friends to your location. Much of the success of this program hinges on the average Facebook user’s ability to understand and utilize QR code technology which, after the whole ReadWriteWeb login debacle, is highly questionable. Additional information on this new QR code-drive, location-based service is expected at Facebook’s f8 conference scheduled for the end of April.

Facebook’s Universal Password and Other Unsettling Insider Info [Blockquote]

Monday, January 11th, 2010

This interview with an anonymous Facebook employee spills some beans about the inner workings of the ‘book. One of the juiciest is that there was once a universal password that let them log in as anyone. Chuck Norris? Really?

To be fair, the password only worked from within the Facebook offices, so you couldn’t just check out anyone’s profile from anywhere if you knew about it. However, employees still have access to all sorts of info about any user, including what profiles you view and any information you have since deleted. Acceptable business practices or privacy disaster? Personally, I almost never use Facebook anymore, so I don’t really care. But that’s just me. [The Rumpus via The Awl]
