New BlackBerry/Porsche collaboration leaks

New BlackBerry/Porsche collaboration leaks

The last time BlackBerry and Porsche worked together, the result was a $2,00 smartphone. Expect similar results this time around, as a series of pictures have leaked via Weibo which seem to show off a new-look BlackBerry Porsche collaboration.

If you like BlackBerry and love bold design, this might be one to watch for.

Amazon Apple Watch app 1-Click works, even accidentally

Amazon Apple Watch app 1-Click works, even accidentally

There's a saying that goes "be careful what you wish for", and it seems that the adage applies even more so to the Apple Watch. And quite literally too. To be fair, the Amazon app for the smartwatch is probably to blame. Or to be more precise, its sometimes handy "1-Click" to buy feature can actually become a nightmare for Apple Watch users, especially when the large orange Purchase button sits precariously on top of a very small "Add to wishlist" line in the smartwatch app.

Bearing that in mind, researchers from Yahoo have found a way to turn ordinary smartphone touchscreens into makeshift biometric scanners for these body parts.

Qualcomm steps up efforts to help Chinese OEMs go global

Qualcomm, one of the biggest chip makers in the mobile industry, is facing quite some challenges on multiple fronts. It practically admitted taking a hit from Samsung's decision not to go with its chips for the highly popular Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge flagships. It also explicitly mentioned incurring no small amount of loss in settling an antitrust case in China. But despite the latter, Qualcomm is even more intent in wooing the large market, this time by establishing ties with Chinese smartphone makers to help them launch their products abroad.
