Both the handsets have been sold in millions and millions with latest estimates suggesting Korean based tech giant to have sold more than fifty million handsets.

Walk through of HTC BlinkFeed on the HTC One (video)

Summary: HTC BlinkFeed is the new home screen experience on the HTC One. It offers a Flipboard-like experience that I think will appeal to some smartphone owners, but frustrate others due to feed limitations.

HTC conducted studies that show people consume data in "snack" portions and to address this usage they developed HTC BlinkFeed for the HTC One. I know when I look around on the commuter train and in stores, my experiences indicate people are indeed browsing on their phones for short periods of time.
The HTC representative at the HTC One launch event walked me through BlinkFeed, but now that I have my hands on an HTC One I was able to spend a lot more time with it and come to a full understanding of how it works.

Sony's PlayStation 4 is a thinly disguised PC

Sony may not have had an actual box to display. But it has revealed the innards of its next-gen PlayStation 4 games console. And it's pure PC.
The CPU is an AMD design with eight x86-64, low-power Jaguar cores, while the graphics core is also from AMD and derived from its latest Radeon HD family and roughly equivalent to a 7850 graphics board. But does that matter? Possibly. Here's why.
In really simple terms (and this assumes leaked info on the next console from Microsoft turns out to be correct), games development just got a whole lot easier.
From now on, you'll develop on one platform – the PC – and simply recompile for PlayStation or Xbox. OK, it'll be a bit more complicated than that in practice. But the basic notion is correct.
And it puts the PC into an interesting position in the gaming hierarchy.

Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, news and rumours

Samsung's stock just keeps rising, so the fervour associated with the new Galaxy S4 is already outstripping that of the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S3, both of which nabbed 'phone of the year' titles in recent times.
If you needed a barometer of this, just look at how the Galaxy S3 was unveiled. Not at MWC like lots of others, but its own event, proving the Galaxy line has reached the level where it can guarantee hoards will come just for an unveiling - and come 14 March in New York, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is going to land too.
The Galaxy S4 name was even 'confirmed' at a recent event by a researcher, which means it's coming closer and closer to reality.
The trickle of 'sources' talking about the Galaxy SIV (if you're being all Roman numeral about it) is building to a roaring crescendo, so we're on hand to help let you know which whispers have a notion of truth about them - as well as providing our wishlist of what we want Samsung to improve on the new handset.
