Amazon has dismissed dozens of engineers and ditched a handful of hardware projects following its dismal attempt at tackling the smartphone market, according to a new report.

The retail giant has also restructured what’s left of its hardware division, combining what was two separate units into one.

OnePlus promised to fix the One’s frustrating touchscreen issues for good with its latest CM11S software update, and yet lots of users are still taking to its forum to complain about the problem. According to one user, that’s because the issue has nothing to do with buggy software, but rather the way in which the handset has been put together.


Just a few hours before Google I/O is scheduled to start, Google has gone ahead and announced a major software and hardware update for the Google Glass. On the hardware side, the company has bumped the RAM to 2GB to help alleviate all the performance issues Glass users frequently complained about.


Are you among the unlucky few whose brand new Galaxy S5 camera is giving a “Warning: Camera failed” error every time you try to launch it? Well, here is some more bad news for you. The issue is not related to software but the hardware and the only way to fix it is to take the phone to your nearest Samsung or carrier maintained shops and get a replacement phone instead. 


Anyone dismissing the Sony MDR-X10 headphones as simply yet another bombastic, over-the-top, celebrity-designed fashion statement for teenage bass junkies would be wrong. Easily forgiven, but wrong.

While most of those descriptive terms ring true — the big, lurid cans apparently received design input from none other than big, lurid entertainment personality Simon Cowell, and they’re definitely aimed toward the bass-obsessed — the X10s differ significantly from their brethren, and actually stand out prominently against an ocean of boom.

In other words, if you’re looking for bass-heavy headphones, this is your first stop; but even if you’re not, the X10s are so good they might win you over anyway.
