[Announcement] Summertime Contest Winners 2014

Aug 10, 2014 - 1:00 AM - by CR6
I'd like to thank everyone for partcipating in our annual Summertime Photo Contest! We had some amazing photos submitted this year and choosing a winner was difficult. In the end, I had to have a third party choose the winner based on overall picture quality and composition.

As a reminder, first place receives a $20 Amazon gift card, with the runner up receiving a $10 Play Store credit.

The winning photo was taken by pchain!
(View of Snail Bay in Fayette Historic State Park through the windows of what's left of an old stone general store from the late 1800's.)

Our runner up is VoiceGuy with an Iowa cornfield.

I'll send each winner a PM tomorrow (Sunday) with information for your prizes.

Thank you all for submitting such great photos!!

2014 Summertime photo contest!

Jun 28, 2014 - 12:05 AM - by CR6

Hello forum friends!
It's that time again. Sun, fun, beach, BBQ, family vacations, and one of our favorite pastimes here on the S3forums..... our annual Summertime Photo Contest! The contest will go until July 31st so you'll have plenty of time to submit your favorite summertime photos.

This year the contest will be open to both members & staff (with the exception of Admins) and the winner to be announced by popular vote on August 2nd.

While there will be no limit to how many photos you may submit, please choose only your very best photos and try to stay within the summertime theme. (which of course is open to interpretation)

First place will be a $20 Amazon gift card, with the runner up receiving a $10 Play Store credit.
Have fun & good luck!

Now you've seen everything... Yes, that crazy picture above is a real product, despite the fact that it looks like something you would see on SNL. Acer teamed up with fashion designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis to create this hideous and hideously vain product. We felt it was worth sharing for the shock and humor value alone.

The pie chart above pretty much says it all. It looks like KitKat didn't get adopted as quickly as Jelly Bean, although it installed on almost 25% of Android devices now. While we still see a few groups of people who are still on Ice Cream Sandwich and even Gingerbread, what's really shocking is that a tiny .7% sliver of... [Read More]

Although Sony already cut its forecast for smartphone sales in July, they have had to readjust their predictions for the financial year and the outlook is bleak. Sony is now expecting quadruple the losses and it's due to poor sales of their Xperia smartphones. Sony now expects a 180 billion yen ($1.7 billion) "impairment"... [Read More]

After the folks at Anandtech dug deeper into the source code of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4's Exynos 5433 chipset, they discovered that it uses the new A57/A53 configuration instead of the previous generation Cortex-A15/A7 mashup. ARM themselves have confirmed this to be a 64-bit architecture. It's odd that Samsung hasn't... [Read More]

Just as Google promised, they are on the march to bring Android to the "next 5 billion" people. They just launched the ultra-affordable Android One smartphone in India. They also shared that the $100 device will be launched in several other nations by the end of the year.... [Read More]

Here are the details from the Sony smartphone announcement. We have three new devices, a flagship, a mid-range and a budget model. They are the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, & Xperia E3 respectively. The Xperia Z3 seems like more of a slightly upgraded refresh of the Z2. 5.2-inch, 1080p display

HTC had their IFA press announcement late last night/early this morning, and they unveiled the Desire 820. Because of the active rumor-mill, we pretty much knew most of the details regarding the device. Here's the full breakdown of specs and features, Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor with 64-bit... [Read More]

Something is amiss in Google-land. Google just announced a new policy which has independent developers enraged, and for good reason. As of September 30th, 2014, Google will now require all developers to publish a physical address on the Google Play Store. This is for anyone who wants to host their app on the Google Play Store, and applies to paid apps... [Read More]
