It’s also — what’s the technical term? — huge. Isn’t it strange, the way the world has decided that we now want big phones? For years, we longed for the tiny cellphones they have in Japan.

Huge is good when you’re using a cellphone (think about maps, photos, email, and movies).

But huge is bad when you’re just carrying it. The M8, at 6.3 ounces, weighs 26 percent more than the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5, and 57 percent more than the iPhone 5s. It’s one heavy beast.

Everybody’s buzzing this week about the new Android smartphone from HTC, called the HTC One (M8). More than one reviewer is calling it the best Android phone ever made. Maybe the best phone ever made.

To assess those rabid claims, you have to ask a few questions before you even open the package. What makes a…

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Planes sent Thursday to check the spot where Chinese satellite images showed possible debris from the missing Malaysian jetliner found nothing, Malaysia’s civil aviation chief said, deflating the latest lead in the six-day hunt.

“There is nothing. We went there, there is nothing,” Azharuddin Abdul Rahman told reporters in Kuala Lumpur.

Adding to the mystery, The Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. investigators suspect the plane flew on for four hours once it lost contact…

the new “HTC ONE M8″

I’d hate to be a phone designer these days, trying to achieve unique and exciting features in a jaw dropping package for what is essentially a screen with some extra bits and pieces surrounding it.

So it’s all the more impressive that HTC, fresh from making the best-looking phone of 2013, has managed to make the HTC One (M8), a phone crammed full of power and great features while improving the design that won it so many accolades.

The poor naming aside, the One (M8) is a phone that takes the superb DNA of last year’s device, improves it in nearly every area and then packs it full of all the latest technology…and still finds space to pack in a microSD card slot.

On top of that the chassis has been retooled to now be made of 90%…

This Four-Armed Robot Might Be Performing Your Next Abdominal Surgery- Wentworth Worldwide Limited

INTUITIVE SURGICAL

The FDA has just improved the fortunes of a lot of sick patients (and one lucky tech company) by approving one little robot that can help perform surgeries more efficiently. The da Vinci Xi System is the most advanced surgical robot on the market, and the fourth version of the product for the brand. As of last Friday, the robot has been deemed safe and ready to hit hospitals, and operate on humans.

The da Vinci Xi System costs a pretty penny, ranging from $1.85 million to $2.3 million per hospital. It is being marketed to surgeons who specialize in complex procedures, but is designed to perform “minimally invasive procedures like prostate surgery.” The robot is, in some sense, an equalizer of surgeon expertise: “Some of the complex surgeries now done by a smaller group of [surgeons] can be done by a larger group of [surgeons] because of the ease of use,” said Salvatore J. Brogna, senior vice president for product development at Intuitive Surgical, Inc.

This particular robot does something no other surgical robot has been able to: move around the body. The robot’s surgical arm has a 180 degree rotation. The arm is also thinner and smaller than other robots of this kind. The instruments attached to the robots arms, such as endoscopes and incision devices, have also been updated to be top of the line, so it helps eliminate the need for large open incisions common to some abdominal surgeries. 

This range of motion gives surgeons a greater advantage in cancer surgeries: “Say a surgeon is removing cancer in the uterus… He or she might need to explore other areas like near the diaphragm, or the stomach… there are different sites where the cancer is likely to spread. With the new robot, you can now excise that cancer right in the same procedure,” says Paul Millman, Intuitive’s vice president of product development.

The robot is the next frontier on minimally invasive, highly complex surgeries: “We strive to provide the most advanced, least invasive option for surgery, and we are working hard to make minimally invasive surgery the standard of care.” 

The FDA approval didn’t hurt Intuitive’s bottom line either. Stock in the S&P 500 company soared 13 percent on Tuesday and another 4-5 percent on both Wednesday and Thursday. 

While the robot won’t be in hospitals for quite some time, you can check out what it can do here:

Google Trying to Trademark the Word ‘Glass,’ but U.S. Hasn’t Said ‘OK’ Yet- Wentworth Worldwide Limited

Google Trying to Trademark the Word 'Glass,' but U.S. Hasn't Said 'OK' Yet

 

Still struggling to make a good name for itself with a skeptical American public, Google Glass is now struggling to get its literal name approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark office. The Wall Street Journal reports that the trademark office is pushing back against Google’s plan to trademark the single word “Glass” for its wearable computerized eyeglasses.

Google already has legal claim to “Google Glass,” but two issues are holding back the plans to trademark “Glass.” For one, the term is too similar to other products and so could cause confusion among consumers. And secondly, the word is “merely descriptive” of the actual product. “You couldn’t trademark the word ‘shoe’ for a shoe you’re selling, for instance,” the Journal notes. The trademark office’s letter argues that Google Glass is made of glass, and so therefore it can’t be trademarked.

Not so, Google responded in a 1,928-page letter. Google Glass in fact has no glass in it, and is instead made of plastic and titanium, Google’s lawyers wrote, presumably high-fiving and yelling “LAWYERED” while typing the response. The majority of that letter consisted of media references to Google’s product as “Glass,” as the company argues that the computerized eyeglasses have already become an established part of the culture and market. No final decision has yet been made by the trademark office.

WATCH: Google Shares More Info on Its Build-It-Yourself Smartphone

With less than two weeks to go to Google’s first Ara Developers Conference — which takes place April 15-16 in Mountain View, Calif., and which will also be streamed online — Phoneblocks released another video further detailing this awesome modular Android smartphone concept, this time showing the team that’s working on Google’s project. In the process of talking to various execs that work on different Ara aspects, Phoneblocks also managed to get a visual of Project Ara’s three sizes.

Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) division, which moved over from Motorola once the search giant sold its hardware arm, previously revealed that Ara phones will be available in three sizes. The bigger the endoskeleton that houses the modules (or the endo), the bigger its display module will be and the more blocks it will be able to support.

When talking to designer Daniel Makoski, Phoneblocks was shown the three sizes of the device — in previous demos only two models were shown — the Mini, the Medium, and the Large. Interestingly, Ara phones will not necessarily be touch-only devices, as at least one Medium concept features what looks like a physical keyboard. The phones will have a 4×7, 3×6, and 2×5 parceled grid, depending on size, with the smallest rear modules measuring 1×1.

The new Project Ara video showing the size of the device follows below.

Here’s a Simple Way to Avoid Falling Victim to the Latest iPhone ‘Security Flaw’- Wentworth Worldwide Limited

Here’s a Simple Way to Avoid Falling Victim to the Latest iPhone ‘Security Flaw’

Thieves could potentially disable the iPhone’s Find My iPhone tracking feature, but don’t panic — there’s a simple fix.

A YouTube user called Miguel Alvarado has posted a video exposing the flaw, which — like most hacks on smartphones — requires quite a bit of digital dexterity to accomplish.

Nevertheless, it’s been seized upon by tech sites and blogs with alarm-inducing headlines.

And, yes, if a nefarious individual manages to purloin an iPhone running iOS 7.1, open the Settings menu and access the iCloud settings while simultaneously toggling for the Find My iPhone feature, it is possible to delete the iCloud account and therefore make the device impossible to locate via Apple’s tracking service. It is also possible to then reset the device without needing an Apple ID or password so that it can still connect to Apple’s other services like iTunes.

But that’s a big if. Even if someone manages to replicate each of the steps in Alvarado’s less-than-responsible video — a link to which is not being provided — the device’s IMEI number is not affected.

As soon as the phone is reported stolen, it is essentially blacklisted so can’t be sold and activated on a cellular network.

And, of course, there’s the phone’s passcode. None of the steps in the video are possible unless the thief can bypass the phone’s code. So make sure it’s activated! This is especially important on iPhone 4 and 4s handsets that seem most vulnerable to the hack.

But the same goes for Touch ID. If you own an iPhone 5s but are yet to activate its most innovative feature — its fingerprint scanner — don’t wait!

But whichever iPhone model you own, making sure it isn’t left unattended will offer similar levels of protection. After all, the phone has to be stolen before it can be hacked.
