Elliptic Labs pushes for better gesture controls in devices

It’s a different kind of evolution, the way we interact with our devices – call it “reverse evolution” maybe, as the more we delve into better technology for our gadgets, the less physical interaction we demand from them.

Samsung shows off the new Galaxy Core Prime

Another week, another Galaxy device is introduced. Wait, or should I say another Galaxy Prime? How about another Galaxy Core? Don't be confused but Samsung has just shown off the Galaxy Core Prime phone. This won’t be another impressive camera phone as the selfie-focused Galaxy Grand Prime as it only has 5MP rear and 2MP front-facing cameras. Making this a winner though is its LTE connectivity.
