| by tech2 News Staff |
We know your world is a very busy place and it's hard to keep track of everything that goes on in the tech world. So here’s a handy recap of the top news stories from this past week.
The contextual voice-based assistant comes to Apple’s platform and there’s not much missing from the Android version. Of course, Apple’s very own Siri still remains the King of The Hill on iOS, thanks to the native integration.
Google Now is out for iPhones and iPads
Intel will be unveiling Haswell chipsets at Computex this June. Manufactured using a 22nm process, the latest chipset has a much bigger graphics engine than Ivy Bridge. The integrated GPUs are said to be three times as powerful as the previous iteration.
Chat away! Whatsapp, Kik, Nimbuzz and the likes have overtaken good ol’ SMS as the chief way of communicating on mobile devices.
The presence of a microSD card slot does soften the blow, but we do wonder how much bloatware is packed into the Samsung flagship.
Billionaire, veteran investor and now, tweeter. Tech-shy Warren Buffet is on Twitter and already has more followers than some early adopters. Wish he would tweet more often though.
After launching one of the cheapest quad-core phones, Micromax has announced a 3D display-toting smartphone for under Rs 10,000. Could this pave the way for more budget 3D smartphones?
Micromax's first 3D phone

A brilliant phone just got better with a software update for bug fixes, camera improvement and a battery life boost. Get this update now, if you have an HTC One.
Some more competition for the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Tab. Zync has launched a powerful quad-core tablet with a full HD display and an attractive price tag.
Not much has changed from the Galaxy Tab 2 , except for the slightly updated design. The physical navigation buttons make this look like a giant phone and that makes sense when you see that it can actually make voice calls.
The Galaxy Tab 3 is not much different from its predecessor
Brian Krzanich will take over from Paul Otellini after months of speculation about who will lead Intel as it looks to make an impact in the mobile chipsets market.
The 8-inch Note tablet with S-Pen can also do voice calls and should be more than a capable performer thanks to the quad-core Exynos ticking inside. That price, however, seems more than a little daunting.
After completing Aakash 2 deliveries, Datawind has submitted recommendations and a possible price for the next-gen low-cost tablet for India.
