According to Jack Tong, HTC's president of North Asia, the Nexus 9 represents HTC's commitment to returning to the tablet market after having abandoned it for three years. That's significant because, well, the tablet hasn't been officially acknowledged or mentioned by almost anyone outside of NVIDIA through legal documents. Focus Taiwan is reporting the news, suggesting that Tong announced the company's plans for the tablet at a press briefing in New York.
Tong did not mention anything else from what we can tell, but Focus Taiwan mentions a potential launch date of October 16, which is next Thursday.
The tablet recently cruised through the FCC, so it would shock us to see the tablet arrive within the next couple of weeks. Keep in mind that we should also see Android L at that time as well.
Remember Apple's former partner GT Advanced and its sapphire glass plant that went bust last year? Apparently, the Cupertino giant has plans to turn it into a massive data center.
The facility will serve as a command center for Apple's global networks. The company will invest $2 billion in the project. As a result, it will create 150 full-time Apple jobs and an additional 300 to 500 supporting jobs locally.
GT Advanced has rights to use the Mesa, Arizona plant until the end of this year. As part of its commitment, the Cupertino giant will also finance solar projects in the area.
If you own a Samsung Galaxy device, you probably have Battery life issues ? Right ? Most of the battery life problems is caused by Samsung's super AMOLED displays, as they are huge (5.0" - 6.0") with resolutions various from FHD to QHD which means more pixels to power and more brightness needed. The display consumes an average of 45% to 55% of your battery life. Don't worry we have a solution for you... Easy and Safe too!
To increase your battery life you will need to reduce the number of pixels on your screen by reducing the resolution of your screen. Placing black spots in a pattern over the screen will actually turn off the pixels in those locations (because in AMOLED tech black color is achieved by actually turning off the pixels on the display). So parts of your screen will be turned off. You'll do that using a simple App that does NOT require any Rooting at all.
Increase Battery Life by Following these Instructions:
1. Download Pixel Battery Saver
Download & Install the App from Google Play Store Here [FREE]
2. Choose level of effect
The app will apply a filter over your screen, placing black pixels in a pattern. You can choose the pattern's density as soon as you launch it.
3. Activating the filter
This is what happens when the app is doing its work. Note that the effect looks much less pronounced on the actual phone's screen.
4. Want battery saving only?
If you only wish to reduce your screen's sharpness when the battery is running low, tap on the "Booting" tab on the top right, then check "Start on specific battery level" and "And only then" (if you wish to not be able to turn the filter on manually), then use the slider below to set the battery threshold.
5. Permanent notification and quicktoggle
The app runs in persistent mode, so Android can't close it at random. Its notification will give you a quick on / off toggle, too, so that makes it useful
6. Toggle at will
And there you go - you are free to reduce the screen's sharpness at will and save some precious battery. Now combine this with Power Saving Mode for some extreme longevity!
