Less than a month after HTC launched the highly anticipated One A9 smartphone, a new handset from the company has been leaked online. Dubbed One X9, the rumored device reportedly carries a model number of E56 and will cost RMB 2,999 (around $470). Specs-wise, from what the leak suggests, the smartphone will be either powered by Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 820 SoC or Mediatek's deca-core Helio X20 chipset, and sport a QHD display, although size isn't known yet.

Ads are coming to Facebook Messenger, brace yourselves

As you may know, there are ads on Facebook. Quite a lot actually. So with that in mind, the following really shouldn't be all that surprising.

The new Nokia 3310: a tug on the heart strings that failed

"Nostalgia is a seductive liar" George Ball wrote in Newsweek back in 1971. That quote still rings true today as we look at the new Nokia 3310 in an attempt to be transported back to the heyday of the original. I know that memories are often rosy, I know that the memes use hyperbole when talking about the original Nokia 3310. It went down in history as The Indestructible Phone, even though Nokia had an entirely separate line of sporty, rugged phones. I remember a guy in school who used to kick around a Nokia 5210 like a football and then put it together again in full working...
