  1. Samsung Roboray Robot Maps Its Environment in 3D, Walks Just Like a Human [Video]

    We're one step closer to C3P0 -- or the Terminator, depending on who you ask.

    Roboray, the latest humanoid robot from Samsung, has a new trick up its sleeve. Thanks to new visual recognition software developed at the University of Bristol, the automaton can build real-time, 3D visual maps of its environment. The new software lets Roboray look at its surroundings and create a map of them as it moves -- or as things move around it -- and retain that information to remember where it has been before, which brings us one step closer to having autonomous robots walking around. If you're a fan of that idea, it's great news! If you're not, commence being terrified...now.

  3. Samsung Assumes You’ll Want This Add-On Game Controller for the Galaxy S4

    Hey, remember buttons? They're back! As you may have heard, the Samsung Galaxy S4 was unveiled yesterday, and you're either rolling your eyes or anxiously awaiting the chance to purchase one, because hey, new smartphone. But the Korean multinational hopes to snag a few more customers by appealing to the video game demographic with a bonus prototype they've showed off along with the S4 itself. It's a cradle/game controller that clamps onto the phone, connects wirelessly -- even though it's right there touching it -- and looks more than a little an Xbox 360 controller. All you need are some triple-A batteries.

  5. Google Maps Can’t Catch a Break in Germany, It May Be Banned by Courts

    In December of last year, Google Maps was facing scrutiny in Germany for potentially violating European Union privacy laws. Things haven't gotten easier for Google in that country, because now Google Maps faces a complete ban in Germany due to a patent dispute with Microsoft. If Microsoft wins the ruling, Google will have to take some pretty extreme measures to keep Google Maps out of Germany. Hope you didn't want to find your away Germany, everybody. It's about to get a little more difficult for you, or more expensive for Google.

  6. It’s Now Illegal to Unlock Your Subsidized Phone, But Does it Matter?

    As of yesterday, it is now illegal to unlock a carrier-subsidized phone for use on another network. Doing so before your contract expires now puts you in violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The move is meant to protect carriers from losing the money they spend to subsidize phones before they have a chance to earn it back through their service plans. There's already a We The People petition to reverse the decision, but is it worth trying to overturn this law?

  7. Group Claims They Found Children Employed at Samsung Supplier, Which Samsung Obviously Denies

    Another week, another accusation of illegal child labor in China. This particular claim, from China Labor Watch, is interesting due to the fact that it concerns Samsung. The technology company conducted an investigation of its own back in September, and they recently claimed that they didn't find any instances of child labor. China Labor Watch claims that they found three underage girls working at HTNS Shenzhen Co., a Samsung supplier. Samsung denies these allegations, because of course they do.

  8. Apple Intentionally Tries to Hide Samsung Statement on U.K. Homepage Using JavaScript

    As if things weren't already silly enough in the decision against Apple in the United Kingdom, the technology giant's gone and made things even worse. The company's original statement was deemed noncompliant and inaccurate by the U.K. courts, as it was meant to alleviate the slander caused by Apple against the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The courts insisted that Apple issue a revised statement on their U.K. website within 48 hours, and they've certainly complied. That's not all they've done, though. Apple's also included a bit of JavaScript that intentionally tries to hide it.

  9. Apple Required to Reissue Samsung Statement After Original Deemed Noncompliant by U.K. Court

    As we've previously reported, part of the ruling against Apple in the United Kingdom required the company to issue a statement on their website saying that the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and by extension Samsung, didn't infringe on the iPad's design. When they finally got around to posting the statement, however, it was tucked away in a linked page and included some extra bits that the U.K. court didn't request. Thanks to their attempts to circumvent the ruling, Apple's been ordered that they have to reissue their statement in order to comply with the original ruling.

  10. New Video Outs Another Unannounced Google Device, The Nexus 10 Tablet

    As sad as it is that Google had to cancel their media event for tomorrow on account of Franken-Sandy, it may not be that big a loss, since most of things they planned to unveil seem to have already popped up online. First, the Nexus 4 smartphone was revealed after somebody left one at a bar. Now a video of another of Google's flagship Nexus devices, the rumored Samsung-built Nexus 10 tablet, is giving Android fans an extremely short sneak peek.
