UseTool is a one-stop calculator and converter Android app

We’ve all been there at one point or another. You’re at the furniture store trying to buy a desk but realised you used the metric system to measure the space in your room. Or you’re in a hotel in another country and you’re not sure if your laptop’s power cord will not explode if you plug it in the wall outlet that uses megawatts instead of kilowatts (or vice versa). Yes, you can google answers to these conversions but wouldn’t it be easier to just have one app for all that?

T-Mobile rolls out updates for Galaxy S4, both HTC Ones

T-Mobile is on a roll, pardon the pun. It has just released firmware updates for the Samsung Galaxy S4, the HTC One (M7) and the HTC One M8.

We’re not sure if it’s a case of being cautious or they want to actually face-off against the Apple Watch, but it seems that HTC has decided to push back on the launch of its own smartwatch to early 2015. This is also the same time period that Apple would be officially launching its wearable, which was announced earlier this weak. There might be missed holiday sales for HTC, but it looks like there is a solid reasoning either way for the Taiwanese OEM to wait until next year to launch their smartwatch.

Remove Band Restrictions from Qualcomm devices with these steps

One of the more annoying things that smartphone hardware manufacturers do from time to time is to restrict devices from using certain wireless bands even though technically the hardware supports those bands. This is particularly common from companies like QUALCOMM where they restrict hardware from working on wireless frequencies abroad.
