Battle of the Blur winner, and a look at how the cameras get it done

0
Defocus even more of the things

Your winner may surprise you ...

Earlier this week we posted up a few pictures using the various background blur techniques from four different phones. We also asked you guys to vote on which you thought was the best image, without telling you which phone it came from. No bias, no manufacturer loyalty, just your opinion from seeing a picture. The result is probably going to be surprising.

Rogers turns on 700 MHz spectrum for communities in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto

5

Rogers just activated their fresh 700 MHz spectrum in a few regions across Canada. Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver are the lucky cities today, though we can expect a nationwide rollout eventually. 700 MHz has been widely described as “beachfront” spectrum that’s particularly good at penetration, so you can keep a signal in elevators and parking garages, for example. It also provides added stability to everyday LTE connections.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 web-slings its way into Google Play

3

The official Android game for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hit the Play Store today, offering plenty of web-slinging and smart-alecky heroism. The storyline expands on what’s in the movie, and has tons of unlockables, like the Symbiote Spider-Man costume, and butt heads with villains like Venom and Kraven the Hunter. There’s original voice acting throughout (though I haven’t been impressed with it in past games) and an open world replete with rich 3D graphics. Added bonus: it looks like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game launched on Android before iOS this time.

Google starting try before you buy program for potential Glass Explorers

15

Anyone interested in trying out Glass without shelling out the full $1500 for the privilege will be interested in hearing about this offer that Google is extending to potential Explorers. For a $50 deposit, Google will ship you four non-functioning dummy units from the Titanium series frames in charcoal, tangerine, shale, and sky paint jobs. Apparently these are returned Glass units that have had all the working elements stripped out of the devices. This pilot program is being made available under the radar through e-mails sent directly to users that have shown interest in Glass.

Facebook wants you to know when your friends are nearby, if they're cool with that

16

Facebook has announced an interesting new feature called Nearby Friends which does pretty much exactly what you think it does. User can optionally turn on broad proximity notifications, so you and your friends can get a notice when your friends are nearby. You can set specific friends and friends lists to get these notifications, and it only works if both parties have it enabled. The new system also allows you to share specific GPS coordinates for a limited amount of time with selected contacts.

4

If you're in the market for a Samsung Galaxy S5 and just couldn't decide where to get it, or you happen to need to pick up some toner at the same time, might we suggest Staples? Starting next week, you'll be able to purchase the latest and greatest from Samsung from the office supplies and more store, specifically on April 20th (as that's Easter day, we hope this also entails getting a chocolate Galaxy S5).
