HTC is making some big office changes and Apple aims to improve its streaming box. All while Best Buy offers an awesome deal for camera geeks.
Peter Chou’s reign has officially concluded as HTC assigns a new CEO. His replacement will be Cher Wang, one of the Taiwanese company’s chairpersons. Wang is a bit more than your usual chairwoman, though. She co-founded HTC in 1997.
“As an entrepreneur at heart, I am excited to see so many new opportunities, and I am honoured to accept this opportunity to help shape the next stage of HTC’s development.” -Cher Wang, HTC CEO
Will new leadership take HTC to a higher position in the mobile industry? We shall wait and see.
Opinion: OK, so I will be the one to say it. It’s awesome to see such a large manufacturer putting a woman in charge. We are fighting for equal rights in the tech industry, but very few give women the position they deserve. This is definitely a step forward.
There’s no denying that apple TV is an outdated and limited device. The latest iteration hasn’t received an update in years and you are restricted to the apps Apple has decided to bake into the device. A change is long overdue, and the latest rumors say a new Apple TV is in the works.
“Sources related to the matter” tell Buzzfeed the new Apple TV is to be released at this years WWDC, this June. It is said to come with an app store, along with a development kit so that content for the set top box can be created.
We are being told we should expect changes to aesthetics, as well as internals. The device should come with a much stronger processor, much more than 8 GB of internal storage and an improved UI that will support Siri.
Opinion: Did you really think that Apple TV discount was a result of Apple’s humble heart? Not really. We are getting ready for something bigger to come. Remember, other rumors say Apple TV will also launch its own internet TV service, so introducing new hardware definitely makes sense.
Are you a fan of the HTC RE camera? We are too, as you may have noticed in our detailed hands-on coverage of the portable camera. It’s a pretty awesome product, but we can’t deny it’s a bit overpriced at $199.99.
This is why you may want to take advantage of today’s Best Buy deal on the HTC RE. The popular retailer is selling this device for half the price, which amounts to $99.99. Go get it straight from Best Buy’s official page!
Opinion: I would have to say $100 bucks is a great price for the HTC RE. In fact, HTC would have sold many of these if they had placed the device at that price from the get-go.
