Microsoft is finally rolling out the Lumia Denim update, Xiaomi Mi Note benchmarks are in and YouTubers get ready to interview the USA President!
Do you have a Windows Phone 8.1 device? You may have an update waiting for you, or coming very soon. The new Lumia Denim update has started rolling out to a select number of devices, which will be followed by all Windows 8.1 devices soon.
What’s new, though? This update brings forth a good list of improvements. For starters you will get the “Hey Cortana” voice activation, Live Folders, Glance screen, an improved IE browser and access to consumer VPN. And those who have the Lumia Icon, 1520, 930 or 830 will also get a new Lumia Camera.
Opinion: This is the moment we have all been waiting for! Have you gotten your update yet? Let us know in the comments.
Did you really dig the Xiaomi Mi Note? If you did, you are probably wondering how well those awesome specs actually translate to performance. The first Xiaomi Mi Note benchmarks have already hit the web and we are looking at a pretty competent smartphone.
The first benchmarks place the Xiaomi Mi Note right behind the Meizu MX4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. It’s no easy feat to beat those devices, so we are glad this affordable Xiaomi smartphone can actually take on some of the best smartphones out there.
Opinion: By the way, this is not the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro. You can expect that oen to blow the competition out of the water. Let’s hope those benchmark results come soon.
It’s impressive how far online journalism has gotten. The internet has brought real freedom of press to life. Anyone with a sound mind and solid opinion can make a video, put it on YouTube and educate the world! The Government is smart to recognize this, and at the next State of the Union address we will see online history in the making.
Three YouTubers will interview President Obama right after his speech. These would be Bethany Mota, Hank Green and Glozell Green. This will bring a funner twist to what many would consider a boring event.
Of course, participants are trying to get questions from the viewers, and you can put in your question by tweeting #YouTubeAsksObama. Hit the social network and your question just might be answered! By the way, you can also watch the State of the Union address on YouTube this January 20th.
Opinion: This is a great move to get the younger audiences involved in politics. YouTube is a strong influence, often stronger than even national television networks. We are living the true age of digital services, guys.
