News Stream is at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. It's the mobile industry's biggest event of the year.
In the coming days, we will speak to the biggest names in the business, as we look for the software and gadgets that will dominate our lives in the years ahead.
On Day 1, we talked to Google's Matias Duarte. He's the Director of Android User Experience. And his description of the latest OS is both awesome and slightly scary.
Duarte says, "We've been rolling out amazing, powerful new features that are almost like a superpower. Like Google now with Jellybean. Your phone is actually your companion. It knows what you want to search for before you do and can offer that information."
It's hard to imagine that the second-best quarterly profit ever made by a U.S. company wasn't good enough for investors.
But Apple isn't an ordinary company. And signs that the tech giant's unbelievable growth might be slowing is enough for investors to flee the stock. FULL POST
My name was on the waiting list for the first batch of Raspberry Pi machines long before I traveled to Cambridge to meet Eben Upton.
Something about the tiny computer sent me back to my childhood days. It could plug into your TV, it could use the same programming language that I used in primary school. It was all very retro.
Only after I got my hands on one did I realize how useful the little thing actually is. At first I was excited about using it as an introduction to Linux and to refresh my dormant programming skills. It was only after I put some media software on it that it really became part of the furniture. FULL POST
Hong Kong (CNN) – He's the 20-something blogger who created the iconic Steve Jobs action figure.
He's also the Hong Kong-based gadget fan who worked his supplier contacts in China to leak authentic components of the latest iPad before the official launch.
And yet, despite his devotion to all things Apple, MIC Gadget's Chris Chang says if it came down to just one device - he would choose a Chinese-branded smartphone over the iPhone.
I know there's a ban on wireless devices in the middle of a flight. I know I shouldn't be doing it.
But there I am, speeding through the streets of Liberty City, chasing a friend who's sitting four rows behind me, when my car hits a barrier and explodes.
The plane shakes a little. FULL POST
Some of the old phones you see in that video came from a street market in Hong Kong. Browsing stalls full of old handsets brought back plenty of memories for me.
There was the Nokia 6110, the first phone with Snake. There was the Ericsson T68, the first phone I'd ever seen with a color screen. And the Nokia 7650: My first experience with a so-called "smartphone".
It made me realise something: The phones I loved weren't necessarily the most important ones. The most important ones were the phones that completely discarded the logic of their times and established something genuinely new. FULL POST
Apple is known as one of the most secretive companies in tech. The lengths the company is said to go to avoid information getting out is the stuff of Silicon Valley legend.
But leaked parts mean we now know more than ever about upcoming Apple products. So many parts have made it into the wild that a Japanese blog even constructed the casing of the iPhone 5.
Did the lack of a surprise ruin the buzz surrounding the iPhone 5's unveiling? The New Yorker's Nick Thompson explains why it might not matter.
It's a rivalry that's arguably more intense inside the courtroom than in stores.
Apple says Samsung ripped off the iPhone and iPad. Samsung says Apple wouldn't have been able to make those products without infringing on Samsung's wireless patents.
