We've seen these kinds of tilt features on Samsung Galaxy phones before, and they've always been absolutely horrible. Hopefully Amazon knows what it's doing here and that it will work way better than it does with standard accelerometers.
From today, Nokia is rolling out new Lumia Black software update bringing new App Folder interface that allows Windows Phone users to stack apps and settings into a folder Tile on the Start Screen.

Other bunch of updates include – rotation lock, custom tones for messages, emails, and reminders, and a new Driving Mode feature that’s designed to limit notifications while you’re driving. Multitasking improvements, including the ability to close apps, are also included.

Nothing special about this ad, but it is fun to watch how much we really are dependent on our smartphones these days. It highlights email, spam, video, tweeting, gaming, Angry Birds, Facebook, etc.
Few hours ago (late Sunday), I saw the following alert message from AVG antivirus on my Windows 8 computer related to Trojan horse: Agent4.AQLZ and shdocw.dll file. Upon further research on the Internet, I found that this problem is currently faced by thousands of AVG users about virus detection which possibly is a false Trojan Horse alarm by AVG.
The antivirus program continues to pile up above virus detection messages whenever you browse windows explorer. After this alert, I attempted to create AVG rescue disk as suggested by help page and followed instructions accordingly. I completely scanned my computer from the rescue disk with no luck.
Thousands of AVG users have reported on the company’s official Facebook page. The community moderator is taking time to reply users individually asking to stay tuned for further updates from the company. Furthermore, the representative is also asking users to provide sample of detected files to analyse this problem over here.
For now, I would recommend everyone to ignore this false positive message from AVG antivirus and not to delete any system files.
Update: AVG officially confirmed that this is discovered as false positive alarm and issued a fix as a definition update.
I personally verified it by updating the antivirus program and rebooting the computer. Once rebooted, you should get a message mentioning shdocvw.dll system file is safe and the program discovered as false positive. You can also view this message from Options > History > Resident Shield Results of the AVG Free program.
Samsung has not yet announced the rumored Galaxy S4 mini device. But, the handset has shown up accidentally in the company’s website.
Originally spotted by TGSpot, Samsung’s app site over here allows you to sort apps by device which let you see a glance of all apps of your device. The following screenshot clearly shows Samsung S4 mini listed as S4 Galaxy mini GT-I9195 and SGH-I257 in one of those devices.
According to leaked images and reports, S4 mini is expected to be slightly smaller than current Galaxy S4, reducing the screen size from 5 inches to 4.3 inches.
