Samsung confirmed the Galaxy S4 release date for March 14 last week, and now the company is set to live stream the event.
The company will unveil the new smartphone at an event set to take place in New York City and will broadcast it live from Samsung's YouTube page.
Samsung sent out invitations to the unveiling last week. The invite reads "come and meet the next Galaxy," and also uses a numerical "4" in place of the word "four" where it says "ready 4 the show," further hinting at a Galaxy S4 unveiling for this date. more >>
Rap Genius, a website that allows the public to critique and interact with "thousands of canonical rap songs," has added the entire King James Bible to its expansive database. At least one biblical scholar who engaged the KJV text welcomes the idea of the interactive "study Bible," although he calls for wisdom in discerning the "gems" from the "junk."
David Lamb, author of God Behaving Badly: Is the God of the Old Testament Angry, Sexist and Racist?, told The Christian Post that making interpretation of the KJV Bible open to the public can lead to meaningful discussions about Scripture, and forces people to actually read the Bible, an activity that many churchgoers are said to avoid.
"It's always good for people to read and discuss the Bible. It's a confusing book and the more we read it and talk about it, the better we'll understand it. Rap Genius is providing another way to do this for people who may not typically attend Sunday school classes on a regular basis," said Lamb, who is also associate professor of Old Testament at Biblical Seminary in Hatfield, Pa. more >>

"The act of looking down at my phone is one of the reasons behind Glass," he said. "We questioned whether you should be walking around looking down. That was the vision behind Glass and that's why we created this form factor." more >>

Continued iPad 5 rumors and information leaks have lead one accessory manufacturer to create a case for the upcoming tablet a bit early even before any features and dimensions have been confirmed by Apple.
A company known as MiniSuit has released its design for the upcoming fifth-generation iPad and has based its design on information received from what it calls a "reliable source."
Receiving information on measurements for a device is a common occurrence for accessory makers and electronics companies know that they need to have a good amount already produced for any gadget's launch. However, making a case solely based on measurements can be a gamble and it is better to wait to have the new device available so that a case can be molded and fits perfectly. more >>
