Sportswear Brand Puma Is Detoxing and It's Going to Affect Us All

Earlier this week, the German company announced plans to eliminate all traces of PFCs from its supply chain

If we’re going to be honest here, we have to admit that, whenever we go clothes or shoes shopping, questions about the ecological footprint of one brand or another almost never cross our mind. 

We care about color, fabric, style and price tag. The damage that our new favorite pair of jeans might caused to the environment – not so much. 

The thing is that, just like our love for gadgets and gizmos, and our addiction to the online world indirectly affect natural ecosystems, our passion for shopping is a contributor to environmental pollution.

Android Apps on Windows Phone 10: A Double-Edged Sword

Word has it that Microsoft might bring Android apps on the next version of Windows Phone to address its biggest issue

Windows Phone 10 is already in the works at Microsoft, but very little is known about the project right now despite the fact that sources close to the matter claim that we're only a few months away from the very first public preview build of this release.

In fact, Microsoft adopted the same cautious approach for most of the products launched in the last 12 months, so the whole secrecy surrounding Windows Phone 10 might actually be a sign that the unveiling of the testing build is nearing.

There's no doubt that Windows Phone 10 is going to be an exciting project, prett...

The Launch of Unity Will Not Spell Doom for Assassin’s Creed Future as a Series

The company needs to delay titles when needed

Assassin’s Creed Unity is in bad shape, even if the development team at Ubisoft in charge of the game is aiming to improve the experience as much as possible based on feedback from the player base, and there are a lot of voices, among both gamers and analysts, who are claiming that at the moment the publisher is entering a long-term decline and will probably need a lot of time to recover.

The launch of the title was supposed to be one of the biggest of the year and the publisher has clearly invested a lot of money in the promotional efforts, as the leaders of the development team ha...

Nokia N1: the Most Blatant iPad Clone the World Has Ever Seen

Even Samsung would be ashamed to go this far

Earlier this week, the fine gents at Nokia started building up some hype for an upcoming product using a mysterious ad that stated “We’re up to something.” A few days later it was revealed that they were up to something alright!

It doesn’t take a trained eye to spot the copycats in the tech industry. Especially when the inspiration comes from Apple’s unmistakable designs. But Nokia, this time around, has gone too far.

A shameful ripoff from top to bottom, starting with the marketing

Starting with the marketing materials themselves, N...

5 Lies Celebrities Tell That You Should Never Believe

Not all that glitters is gold, not even in Tinseltown

Whenever a celebrity starts promoting a new project, whether it’s a music album, a film, a perfume, a new season of a reality show – you name it – know to expect them to come out with rehearsed anecdotes, answers to pre-approved questions, and a deluge of details from their personal life.

Only a handful of celebrities refuse to discuss about their life in detail, and they deserve credit for it. They’re also a dying breed because they’re refusing to go with the trend of oversharing, and in so doing, they’re fighting to remain film people or musicians, i...

Ubuntu Touch Is the Only Truly Community Driven Project and That's Why It's Going to Succeed

Canonical is very close to have a stable release

The Ubuntu Touch platform is very close to the release, and very few people have actually realized what kind of potential it holds. It's open source, it has quite a few apps in the store, it's completely Linux based, and it's designed by a dedicated team. It has the possibility of becoming a real success and it's well under way towards that goal.

Canonical announced a couple of years ago that they had started the work on a new operating system for the mobile platform. The team was doing releases for many years, they had a working OS for TVs and they have dabbled with the i...

The Nightmare of Going Back from Windows 10 to Windows 8.1

What you could miss if you decide to abandon Windows 10

Microsoft released Windows 10 Technical Preview in early October, and millions of users rushed to download and install the very first build, even though the company said from the very beginning that it was only designed for those experienced and for developers.

In a recent statement, Redmond revealed that no less than 1 million users actually deployed Windows 10 Technical Preview on their computers, based on figures collected from the Windows Insider Program. But there’s no doubt that these stats are bigger, especially when taking into account that users could also download the new ...
