Dont’ have a paid spotify account? Well we have good news: The music streaming service officially announced today that it will be extending the honeymoon period for unlimited free listening in the U.S. Meaning you can continue to listen to as many tracks as you want – though it wasn’t mentioned for how long this extension will last.
With the music-streaming market still in its infancy, Spotify is having to negotiate with record labels to license their portfolios and have them streamed for free on its service, hoping that users will then sign up for Premium accounts (which deliver improved features).

Nokia might be lagging far behind in terms of smartphone market share at the moment, but that does not mean their precarious position is going to remain that way forever.
Nokia might have an ace up their proverbial sleeve after submitting a patent application for the Nokia Morph. Nokia Morph is may be the 1st transparent, flexible handset which you are able to contort according to how you like it. It has an extremely broad explanation, and the patent also touched on a “remote processing unit,” whatever that is.

The new iPad just came out, but the name didn’t really change. Will the same be said of the next gen Macbook Pros? They might simply just be called that – the new MacBook Pro, especially when industry pundits agree Apple would do well to stick with the standard Macbook Pro moniker.
Word on the street has it that Apple will be ramping up the mass production process of its next generation MacBook Pro from April onwards, strategically placing it in a position to benefit from Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge processors. No idea on just which particular screen size will enter production first, but MacRumors claim that the 15″ model is in pole position as this could very well have “something to do with [Intel's Ivy Bridge] timetable as it was reported the very low power Ivy Bridge CPUs also won’t be ready until June.”

We love gadgets of all shapes and sizes.
If you prefer your tech to be fun, silly and sometimes furry as apposed to anything too serious you’ll be happy to see we’ve thrown caution to the wind this afternoon, ditched the high-end, regular speakers and have collected together a list of our favourite animal speakers, including dancing cats, deep sounding dogs and of course some angry birds.
When enjoying music, videos, and digital entertainment fun, add a dash of whimsy to your set-up by adopting a hassle-free pet in the form of animal-shaped docking stations and speakers.
See the slideshow after the jump.

Tag Heuer has announced a high-end luxury Android Smartphone whose design is inspired from F1 racing cars. This premium Android phone would be released with a price that could make a real hole in your pockets – Tag Heuer would release this high-end Android phone with a price tag of a whopping $3,680.
The credit for this extravagant pricing goes to Carbon Fiber and titanium which can be throughout this phone and unlike Mobiado’s luxury Aston Martin phone, this device comes with a powerful processor, latest version of Android operating system and a 3D user interface (an exclusive Tag Heuer feature).
The device looks very beautiful, it is totally crafted to satisfy’s every Formula 1 fan’s fantasy but seriously I wouldn’t pay such a hefty sum for this device. Tag Heuer Racer is expected to hit US markets sometimes in July and would be available across many jewelers.

Google is all googly eyes as the DOJ and European Union have approved them for acquiring Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion.
The Department Of Justice grouped the announcement of the merger’s green light along with other patent deals involving Apple, Microsoft, RIM and Novell. In all the cases, the DOJ determined that none of the acquisitions were likely “to substantially lessen competition.”
High on Google’s check off list is acquiring Motorla’s patents. Many of the major technology companies operating in the mobile market are suing each other for patent infringement, or threatening such suits to obtain patent licensing fees.With Motorola, Google will have control over some 17,000 patents that will help it in the mobile patent disputes with Apple, Microsoft and other companies, and more control over the handset manufacturer of its Google Android devices.

Got a digicam? Check. Cell phone with a camera? Check. Laptop? Check. MP3 player? Check! Tablet or ebook reader with internet and email? Check and check. Seeing any overlap in devices? Check! But what if you had ONE device that could do all of that, either together or individually? Could be a revolutionary product you say? We would have to agree with you.
Now, we would also agree that you can’t do everything right, but lets give Prashant Chandra‘s Lifebook concept a chance. It was designed on the “shared hardware” dilema. Currently a lot of hardware is wasted when we use separate devices, as there is often a lot of duplicated content. So Prashant saud, “if I have my songs on my music player, why do I have to block the same amount of storage on my laptop? Similarly, if I have a processor sitting in my tablet, why can it not also run/assist my laptop? If I have a fully functional camera with its own memory and image processing power, why do I need to have it repeated in my laptop?”

Those feeling remorse about terminating their Netflix account and desiring a comparable streaming service and not finding any, now have a glimmer of hope . It seems our friends at Redbox are teaming up with Verizon and will be unveiling Streaming Video. Sure, theres Amazon and Hulu, and although Netflix’s offerings are not as grandiose as desired, Amazon and Hulu are way behind in the content category, which means Redbox is in a great position to overthrow Netflix as the streaming king.

Have you heard anything about Satellite Internet? Probably not since you found out (10 years ago) HughesNet is basically slightly faster than dialup, and for it’s price, you could get something way faster with your neighborhood phone or cable provider. The only real reason for Sat internet is if you don’t have the local provider, say, for instance, because you were living out in ‘ranch no-mans land’, or high up on a mountain, where no communication company could connect to you. Oh, but the times are a changin’.
Say hello to Exede Satellite Internet. ViaSat, Exedes parent company, launched a new satellite in October. Called ViaSat-1, it communicates via the new Ka bands as opposed to oldschool Ku. The results? Gone are the days where our rural friends are stuck in the 1.2-2.5 mps connection time-warp. Exede will rival the metropolitan internet offerings by providing speeds up to 12 mps! This is simply phenomenal (this speed is what our local cable company provides us) and will certainly be an industry game-changer. This new satellite internet offering mean this service has matured to the point that it can allow its customers latency-free VoIP and video streaming.
