New DMCA rulings on rooting leave us scratching our heads

Ah, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. There have been plenty of confusing rulings and laws centering around the DMCA ever since it was introduced back in 1998, and we're sad to say that things aren't getting any less mind-boggling. The Librarian of Congress handed down its latest exemptions to the DMCA this week, and it's safe to say that we have no idea what anyone was thinking with this new set of rules.

Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs to give keynote at CES 2013

The folks behind CES have announced who will give the keynote address during 2013's show, and it may surprise you to find out that it's Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs. Okay, it might not be that surprising considering that Jacobs also gave the keynote address at the 2012 and 2010 shows, but with Microsoft giving up its keynote spot, many thought that the CES people would choose a more well-known company. That's not to say that Qualcomm isn't well-known among technophiles like all of us, but for the mainstream crowd, Qualcomm isn't the first name that comes to mind when the word "technology" is mentioned.

Ematic launches new Funtab Pro tablet for kids

We're not sure how good of an idea it is to give your child a tablet, but we do know that if you're going to do so, it probably shouldn't be one of those fragile, expensive tablets aimed at adults. If you find yourself with a child who loves playing around with tablets but don't want to give them a slate that isn't anywhere near childproof, Ematic has a new device for you. Today the company launched the new Funtab Pro tablet, teaming up with Zoodles.com to offer Zoodles Kids Mode on the 7-incher.

GameStop’s game streaming service arrives in 2013

GameStop has announced that its game streaming service will be launching in summer 2013, but at least at first, it won't be available on consoles. Dubbed "Spawn," GameStop has been talking about this cloud gaming service ever since it bought Spawn Labs back in 2011. Obviously, GameStop means to expand beyond brick and mortar retail with this move, challenging other streaming services like OnLive and Gaikai while dipping its hand in a broader range of markets in the process.

Acer Iconia Tab A210 gets a charming new ad

We're still being left in the dark as to when Acer is planning to launch its new Iconia Tab A210, but this new advertisement we have posted for you after the jump seems to suggest that Acer is gearing up for launch. We got our first introduction to the Iconia Tab A210's hardware back in June, and even though it's quite similar to the Iconia Tab A200, there are a few key differences. One of those differences is the inclusion of a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, which is a significant step up for the A200's dual-core Tegra 2 CPU.

Google introduces Handwrite search for smartphones and tablets

If you're like me and you have fat fingers that don't do well when presented with a tiny touchscreen keyboard, then Google's new Handwrite search might just be what you're looking for. Google has officially rolled out the beta for its new Handwrite search functionality, and it allows you to write your search term with your finger instead of typing it into the search field. As with regular Google Search, you can write-in only a partial phrase and then pick from a list of common search terms, which should come in handy when using Handwrite on a smaller screen, such as a smartphone.

AT&T Q2 2012 financial results see 5.1m smartphones sold

We've been getting a lot of excellent quarterly financial reports in lately. From Samsung and Qualcomm to Verizon and now AT&T, smartphones and tablets are making a lot of people filthy rich. AT&T sold a whopping 5.1 million smartphones in Q2 of its fiscal year, with 61.9% of its postpaid subscribers using a smartphone. That 61.9% figure jibes quite well with what we've been hearing from Nielsen lately, which says that in Q2, 2 out of every 3 people who purchased a phone went with a smartphone over a feature phone.

Samsung to make ‘major’ Galaxy announcement next month

Samsung has informed everyone that it's planning to make a major Galaxy-related announcement on August 15. Naturally, we don't know what this announcement is - that would take all the fun out of it - but our friends at SlashGear are guessing that it has something to do with the Galaxy Tab or the Galaxy Note. Since Samsung just released the Galaxy S III in May, we're tempted to agree.
