Tumblr’s Loss Is WordPress’ Gain As Thousands Of Users Jump Ship Before Yahoo Takes Over

51QOAkBmfBL._SL500_In what can only be called an exodus, WordPress’ co-founder and CEO Matt Mullenweg posted on his blog Sunday night that over 72,000 new blogs were created within an hour. This is a massive spike considering that WordPress usually just sees 400 to 600 new blogs on most Sundays. It’s a tiny percentage of Tumblr’s 108.6M blogs (.66%) but it’s an important consideration that Tumblr – and now Yahoo – cannot ignore.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active gains a J and new processor in rugged makeover

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active gains a J and new processor in rugged makeover

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active has made another appearance online, this time in a benchmark result which claims to reveal a new processor and slightly altered named.

According to details which have appeared on GFXBench the rugged handset in question could well be known as the Samsung Galaxy S4 J Active, although that seems like more of a development moniker than something the Korean firm would actually market.

In terms of specs the benchmark result apparently reveals a couple of details including a 1.9GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus quad-core processor – which is different to the Snapdragon 600 clocked at the same speed in the Galaxy S4.

Global appeal

The water- and dust-proof handset will also come running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, with model SGH-I537 said to be destined for the US, while GT-I9295 will pop up in Europe.

You can still expect to see a full HD display on the S4 J Active, although we wouldn’t be surprised to see a thicker slab of glass laid over the top to provide extra protection.

There’s no further word on when the Galaxy S4 Active may make an appearance, but earlier reports seem to point towards a June or July release, so watch this space.

Samsung’s New 13-Inch Display Has a Crazy 3,200 x 1,800 Pixel Resolution

Samsung will be displaying some of its latest and greatest notebook and tablet screens at the Society for Information Display’s Display Week 2013. Among them, one stands out: a 13.3-inch notebook display with a 3,200×1,800 (WQXGA+) pixel resolution

For those keeping count, that’s quite a bit better than Apple’s 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, which has a maximum 2,560×1,600 pixel resolution. To make things even better, Samsung claims that LCD can deliver “30 percent” greater power savings than existing LCD displays

Of course, we’re not quite sure what we’d do with such a high resolution on a 13.3-inch screen, but it’s comforting to note that the 1,600×900 pixel resolution — exactly half of the screen’s maximum and much better suited for 13-inchers — will be perfectly crisp Read more…
