Lenovo just bought the Motorola handset division to Google in $2.91 billion. How this happened:
Right after Google bought Motorola [in 2012 ], I invited [Google executive chairman] Eric Schmidt to have a dinner at my house. I told him, "If you think you want run the hardware business, you can keep the business; but if you are not interested in the hardware business, we definitely can handle that, take over that."
He remembered that, and two months ago, he sent me an e-mail. I called him back, and he asked me, "Are you still interested in Motorola?" I said, "Definitely." We started to discuss it. I went to Silicon Valley many times. [Google CEO] Larry Page invited me to his house to have a dinner. Very quickly -- in just two months -- we closed the deal, says Lenovo CEO Yuanqing Yang  in a interview made by tech fortune

Leaked picture taken with Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 suggests a 21 Mpxls camera.

The Leaked picture below was taken with a supposed Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 version SM-G900V and  suggests a 21 Mpxls camera The photo was shared by @evleaks on twitter but originally posted by @123fliptest on flipboard

info from EXIF reveals that the camera had an f/2.2 aperture and a focal length of 4.6mm. Assuming the camera lens will be 28mm equivalent in 35mm terms equivalent, the sensor size comes in at 1/2.5" – the size of the 20MP in the Nokia Lumia 1520.There is indeed some speculation that since the photo has 16:9 aspect ratio, the full resolution of the sensor could be 21MP (for a 4:3 sensor).

All the codes for the Samsung Galaxy S5 worldwide for carriers:• - SM-G9006V_CHN_CHN (China)
• - SM-G9008V_CHN_ZM (China)• - SM-G9009D_CHN_CTC (China) • - SM-G900A_NA_ATT (AT&T) • - SM-G900D_JPN_DCM (Japan) • - SM-G900F_EUR_XX (Open Europe) • - SM-G900H_EUR_XX (Open Europe) • - SM-G900I_SEA_XSA (Asia) • - SM-G900J_JPN_KDI (Japan)…

The Future is now: The RYNO Bike. Video.

WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesùs.

The Ryno bike: a one-wheeled, electric-powered motorcycle created by Chris Hoffmann. The Ryno was based off a sketch by Hoffmann's daughter who saw something like the vehicle in a video game. With 15 years of auto industry engineering experience, Hoffmann got busy building the very first Ryno. 
Six years and three prototypes later, the Ryno travels at speeds up to 10 MPH and can travel up to 10 miles on a fully charged battery. The bike weights 160 pounds and can carry up to 260 pounds with its custom steel frame. LED headlights ensure riders can see where they're going and others in cars or on bikes can see the rider.
Last week, Hoffmann came into the Popular Science office and brought with him the Ryno. A couple of us rode it around the halls of our floor, people pulling off their headphones and peeking behind corners to see what was going on. It felt a little weird getting on the Ryno at first – there's no gas …
