Samsung forecasts lower operating profits for the quarter

56

Samsung has made a statement that they expect a second consecutive quarter with declining profits. The Wall Street Journal also speculates that factors such as a partial sales ban on Korea's top two carriers and perceived opinion that the Galaxy S5 — due to hit stores in Europe and North America Friday, April 11 — doesn't offer enough features to validate the upgrade fees, and the sales figures will not surpass last year's model. They say this will affect sales this quarter as well. We say it's too early to even make that sort of prediction, and we'll wait to count the beans after all is said and done.

Livestream for Google Glass is surprisingly good

Livestream for Google Glass

Battery and heat may be a bigger hurdle than a data connection, though

Apps for Google Glass — Glassware, don'tcha know — can be hit and miss. And quite often it falls into the latter category. Livestream today put forth its official piece of Glassware, and it's surprisingly good. That is, considering it makes it possible to stream video live from your face, from a $1,500 wearable whose battery is but a fraction of what you have in your smartphone.

Consider our interest piqued.

Reminder: Registration for Google I/O 2014 opens tomorrow [updated with delay]

7
Google I/O

Update: Google has pushed back registration by a week. Original follows.

Google I/O, the annual conference for all things Google and developers, kicks off registration for the 2014 edition tomorrow, April 8th. If you've been waiting for your opportunity to get in on the two-day event, this year may be your best chance considering Google's new registration policy.

Rather than a mad dash to lock up the very limited number of tickets all at once, Google is leaving open registration from 5am PT on April 8th until 5pm PT on April 10th. This means you can get through and complete registration at your (relative) leisure, ensuring that you're in the running. Google will then randomly select the maximum number of tickets from the pool of registrants and hand out tickets.
