Kodak is a staple in the film and photography world, and today we're getting a glimpse at a neat concept for 2014.

I have a confession to make. I'm not a fan of the entire smartwatch idea. Especially after trying out the Pebble, although our pal Robert Nelson loved it in his review.

We'll just leave this here for you to enjoy for the weekend.

Samsung patents dual-screen tablet design

One screen good, two screens better. That seems to be the thinking behind one of Samsung's latest awarded patent filings, spotted in the USPTO by Forbes. The patent shows a clamshell design not dissimilar to the Sony Tablet P, but using a larger, flatter form factor that's more like a traditional laptop in shape. Also of note is a removable controller/pointer that slides into a slot along the hinge.

Skyrim Unlocker concept is all the rage in the Thieves Guild

I you've been following the Android Reddit for the last few days, you've probably seen a few concept screens for a lockscreen inspired by Bethesda's RPG magnum opus, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Well, a developer going by "DaveRun" has finally gotten the ball rolling in earnest, developing a concept app that mimics the console and PC game's lock-picking interface almost perfectly. It doesn't actually unlock the phone yet since it's at the proof of concept stage, but Dave's getting a lot of support from like-minded users on his post.
