Having trouble accessing your Evernote account ? Here’s the explanation. As announced on its blog, Evernote said that it has suffered from a major security breach, making it the latest big-name tech companies to have been hit by such attacks.
The blog post explains that hackers have managed to steal Evernote user information, including “usernames, email address associated with Evernote accounts, and encrypted passwords”. The cross-platform note-sharing company said that the encryption is robust enough and that no payment information...

Mobile technology evolves so fast, it’s mind boggling. Only a few years ago, gaming on the go meant crude graphics and simplistic gameplay, and here we are today, talking about console titles ported to run on a Android mobile device.
As part of its Android Thursdays series, which shows off Android gaming on the Tegra 4-equipped Project Shield, Nvidia demoed a complete port of a previously PS3-exclusive title, Burn Zombie Burn!
While not the most graphics intensive PS3 title, Burn Zombie Burn! is still a game that was designed to take advantage of the (still) powerful silicon inside a video...

Asus has done it again. After the Transformer Pad TF300 became the first non-Nexus device to sport Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which was rolled out to the slate last year in August, the TF300 now holds the title as the first tablet outside of the Nexus family to receive the newer Jelly Bean flavor.
The Nexus 7 maker has announced that the Transformer Pad TF300T in the U.S. will be getting Android 4.2 starting today via an OTA update, with similar software update to be pushed out to the tablet in other markets not long thereafter. While the specific build wasn’t mentioned in the...

Contrary to popular belief, we don’t really like to play favorites here at Android Authority. And yet how can we keep a clear head and not fall hopelessly in love with a company like ZTE? Okay, maybe that U9810 packing 4 GB of RAM is bonkers (and not entirely in a good way), but the Grand S, Grand Memo and now U935 are positively dreamy.
What’s so special about this U935? In a nutshell, it’s so crazy cheap that...

HTC announced their 2013 flagship smartphone, the One, on Febrary 19th. That’s less than a month ago. According to Focus Taiwan, the company wanted to launch the device in their home market today, but the launch had to be postponed until the 7th. That’s this Thursday. Why was the launch delayed? We don’t know.
Strangely enough, when HTC unveiled the One, they said it would be available in 32 GB and 64 GB configurations. The One that’s meant for Taiwan will have just 16 GB of on-board storage. Why? Again, we don’t know, but...

Once upon a time, not that long ago actually, you had to be an adult with a fairly decent job in order to own a smartphone. Today, thanks to budget devices and operator subsidies, damn near anyone can own the latest and greatest device from HTC, Samsung, or even Apple. This means that younger folks are getting into smartphones as well, but there’s a small issue with that. Young people don’t have credit cards, and because they don’t have credit cards, that means they can’t buy apps.
Apple figured out how to solve this ages ago with the introduction of iTunes giftcards. Now pretty much any major online service has figured out a way to sell gift cards at retail outlets such as 7-11. Google...

Why did Samsung kick HTC’s ass last year and why are they probably going to kick their ass again this year? Advertising. HTC’s marketing budget is practically non-existant compared to the billions that Samsung spends every year to make sure you know what a Galaxy is and that there’s a new one out on the market. In fact, Samsung spends more money on ads in one year (about $14 billion) than HTC makes in phone sales.
It’s kind of sad, but that’s just the world we live in.
Now when you look at the smaller players, they’re even less hesitant to run an ad or two. According to ZTE USA CEO Lixin Cheng, who spoke to FierceWireless during Mobile World Congress, ZTE doesn’t want to “burn...

The ZTE Grand Memo, a new 5.7-inch Android handset unveiled at MWC a few days ago, happens to take the grand scandal title for this year’s edition of the popular Spanish show.
In case you missed it, ZTE announced that the Grand Memo would be the first handset in the world to pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Why is that important? Because no flagship device from any of the main Android makers out there will equip that particular processor, which happens to be the top of the line Qualcomm SoC for this year.
Devices like the HTC One and the LG Optimus G...

Samsung’s response to Apple’s iPad mini was unveiled at MWC 2013 – the Galaxy Note 8.0 – where we had a chance to play with the device, whose existence wasn’t really a secret as we got ready for the official announcement.
At the event, we only took the white version for a first hands-on preview and we compared it with the iPad mini and...
