Here comes the Motorola Nexus 6 to offer more of everything

Google has indeed come out with the next Nexus smartphone along with a new tablet today. As has been repeatedly leaked and tipped, the Nexus 6 bears Motorola's mark, making it the first Nexus device to come from the manufacturer's portfolio. But the Nexus 6 is also a first for Google, its first smartphone to completely cross the line from a handy size to one that trades in comfort for more room to display things.

Movie Edit Touch is your own mobile video editing suite

There used to be a time that for you to be able to edit the videos you take on your mobile devices, you need to transfer them to your desktop, download a video editing suite, edit and render on your desktop (which sometimes takes hours) and then transfer back to your phone or tablet. Whew! We just got tired thinking of all that. But now, mobile video editing apps have been appearing in the market. One new player is called Movie Edit Touch, which is pretty self-explanatory already.

Lenovo and Motorola collaborating on new tablet

Leaks show pictures and specs of new Fitbit models

It's still a few months away, but already leaks and rumors abound regarding the new Fitbit models that will be launched in 2015. A tech website got its hands on the marketing materials for the Fitbit Charge and Charge HR and it looks like both are a somehow refurbished version of the Fitbit Force.

EA rolls out yet another update for Plants vs Zombies 2

Electronic Arts is still banking on Plants vs Zombies to bring in money. Why wouldn’t it since the mobile game is still popular although nothing compared to when it first came out. The Plants vs Zombies 2 was released October last year and has since received numerous updates. It introduced new map mechanics, brought back the big bad Zomboss, and released a Far Future expansion. A couple of months ago, new worlds, levels, and zombies have been added too.

Potential app lets you know battery status of all your devices

Any device with low battery is deemed almost useless until you plug and see battery level rise. A full, green battery is always a sight to behold. But sadly, that is not always the case. Gadgets run on juice and most of them won’t last the whole day. The technique is to bring a charger or a power bank with you all the time. Or, just charge the device anytime there is a chance. You don’t want to suddenly run out of batt when you’re in an important conversation, do you?
