SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 14th, 2012


This week we’ve had our fair share of surprises in the mobile universe, but today it appears that we’re going to be running smooth in the computing world – desktops and storage devices galore! That said, you’ll still want to start your journey off with Western Digital’s 802.11AC My Net router and bridge. Move on then to Google TV updates with voice search and PrimeTime guide reborn. The BlackBerry L-Series has been spotted in a photo shaking hands with an iPhone 5, imagine that!

There’s a fabulous sun-less planet out there this week (not that it wasn’t there before, but still), just staring at us, laughing. The CEO of Tesla Motors has made it clear that electric trucks and self-driving cars are in the future for the company. Google Mars has since 2009 become clearer than what Google is able to offer here on Earth – can you guess why?

Have a peek at any of several new reviews we’ve got up this week, starting with the two newest: the Olympus Stylus XZ-2 digital camera and the Otaku Camera app for iOS! Also take a peek at the new LG Optimus L9 and the Nokia Lumia 810, both of them out now for T-Mobile!

After the January reveal of the BlackBerry 10 platform, it’s been assured by the COO that there will be sales “not too long after”. There’s a Xiaomi Box out there this week getting pumped up about taking on Apple TV and Google TV. The Gibbs Quadski has begun production in Detroit.

Nintendo has added Wii U details to the fray and made it clear that there will be no Wii GamePad screen play. The project known as Projecto has been added to Kickstarter with intentions of making your Instagram into a Viewmaster. Nest has a competitor this week in Tado, a smartphone-controlled heating system.

Crytek is celebrating the fifth anniversary of the original Crysis game today – hooray! Samsung has made it clear that they have “no intention” of settling with Apple over legal matters. There’s a Skype hack out there that supposedly steals your account with no more than your email – stay tuned for a statement from Skype on this one.
