Over 50% of European ties already deleted by Google

Google said they removed 53% of the relevant links on its European sites (they still appear on its American sites or other regions where EU law does not apply), but recognizes the difficulties in assessing the validity of requests. "Some claims are found to be made ​​with false or inaccurate information , writes Peter Fleischer, responsible for issues of private data at Google. Though applicants provide us with true, they may, understandably, avoid providing us with facts that are not in their favor.

According to a new report from ABI Research, Android-powered tablets have finally done the unimaginable; they have outsold the iPad. With a 17% dip in sales for the quarter from Q1, global tablet sales are up 23% year-over-year for the same quarterly period. In addition, the research firm found that 7″ models are now the majority of tablets sold, thanks to the iPad Mini (7.9″) and all of the various Android OEMs that currently produce 7-inch slates. 

Revenue for tablets sold through Q2 in 2013 reached $12.7 billion, with Apple taking a hefty 50% of that amount, and the rest going to all other tablet manufacturers. This can’t be labeled as a win for any one Android manufacturer in particular, but a win for the ecosystem in general. More than likely, Amazon’s Kindle line and Sam ... Read more »

If you missed out on the opportunity to enroll your newly purchased Verizon Android phone in some sort of protection plan through Asurion, now is your chance to sign-up. Big Red and Asurion are currently hosting an open enrollment for protection plans that runs from now until December 2. 

You’ll be able to choose from all of Verizon’s protection offerings like the newly introduced Total Mobile Protection (TMP) or a basic extended warranty. TMP will cost you $10 a month, but is the "most comprehensive” as it includes replacement, support, and security services. From there, you could drop to $8 per month and choose Total Equipment Coverage (TEC), $5.18 per month for Wireless Phone Protection (WPP), or $3 per month for an extended warranty.

Yesterday we saw the HTC One Developer Edition officially receive its Android 4.3 update. While this all good n’ dandy for those that paid full price for the One (ie, yours truly), it goes without saying the vast majority of HTC One owners purchased theirs through their carrier (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc). It’s those customers who are wondering when they can expect Android 4.3 to arrive on their Ones and according to HTC… soon.

As a recap, talk of the One receiving Android 4.3 kicked off back towards the end of August when HTC’s President of US revealed their plans to update carrier US/Canadian Ones and the HTC DROID DNA to 4.3 before the end of September. With barely 3 days left in the month, John Mackenzie is back again with a quick status ... Read more »

It was back in February of this year that the CyanogenMod team announced that they would be changing the name of their custom clock widget, Chronus, to that of "cLock”. This was due to the team being hit with a cease and desist letter from someone claiming to own the rights to the name. 

Check out:

Today, the CyanogenMod developer responsible for the clock widget is announcing the triumphant return of "Chronus”, this time available to all in the Google Play Store. The app is completely free to download and, similar to apps like DashClock, gives you a nice clock widget displaying the time, along with the weather and upcoming calendar events.

out of South Korea is reporting that Samsung will begin producing a premium lineup of smartphones, starting next year. The devices, which currently assume the codename "Project F”, will be coming to retail in March of 2014, according to Japanese blog rbmen.

The devices, which are said to be the next iteration of the Galaxy S4 and Note line of devices, will not only up the ante on specs, but make a radical departure in regard to Samsung’s tried-and-true build quality. Said to have a "metal chassis” like the HTC One, the devices could also have a 5-inch screen and optical image stabilization in the camera. ETNews also notes a 1600 million pixel camera, but that is probably going to be a 16MP shooter that has been lost in Google translation.

ETNews went on to mention the devices will run ... Read more »
