A new Moto E shows its face, Imgur makes its Pro features free and HTC fills the internet with music. This and more past the break!
Motorola surprised us with the launch of the Moto E. They proved a super affordable smartphone didn’t have to be complete fecal matter. It costs only $119.99 and offers great performance for said price. What could be better? How about a 2nd generation Moto E?
That may be exactly what we saw last month, and it may be what we are looking at today. Best Buy has made a new page live, featuring a Sprint-bound Moto E that is not the one we are used to. In fact, it’s the same device we saw in the previous leak and comes with an even cheaper $99.99 price tag.
Specs include a 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a 4.5-inch 960x540p display and 4G LTE connectivity.
Opinion: Could we be looking at the next Moto E here? Maybe just some kind of Moto E+ improved version. We will find out in due time. For now, the device is not available for shipping and looking around for available devices around my area was unsuccessful.
Imgur just turned six, and they have decided to simply go nuts and give everyone a Pro subscription! Well… it doesn’t quite work like that, but it does. Ingur will pretty much be killing its Pro subscription, which used to cost $23 a year. Then every user will get the Pro features for free, which the only downside being that now the service will be ad-supported for everyone.
Here’s what you will get:
- Store an unlimited number of images in your account
- Receive multiple thumbnail options on all uploads
- Access complete image analytics and referrer data
- Manage, edit or delete any uploaded image at any time
- Interact with the awesome Imgur community through commenting, voting and sharing
Opinion: Now this is something to celebrate! Imgur has become a very powerful service for sharing images. A lot of us use it, so it makes sense to go free. After all, they will be getting quite a bit of profit from traffic revenue.
HTC seems to be getting very musically creative lately. The High Tech Computer tech company has released a couple music videos in less than a week. One of them features a couple of rappers showing everyone else who is boss. They call it Doc G’s “Hold the Crown” and its a pretty sassy tune.
Meanwhile, HTC CEO Peter Chou is leading the “HTC SUPER BAND” with a song called “We Are One”. It’s all about how awesome HTC and their devices are, and serves as a much more inspirational song.
Opinion: I don’t know what is going through their minds, but I am kinda loving these songs! Are you?
