Last week, Dead Zebra began to debut new figurines for Android Mini Collectible Series 05. The first two figurines unveiled were the Sk8 Cop and Panda. Then, on Friday, the Hello World figurine said hello to the world. Now, Dead Zebra has exposed the Ice In My Belly figurine. Artist Lunabee, who is based in the United Kingdom, designed the figurine that has a dark heart powering the dragon’s frosty breath.

Hit the break for a view of the front and back.

Dead Zebra teased that “maybe if you’re lucky you’ll come across his fiery brother.” We would have to assume that a traditional dragon figurine with a fiery breath is on the way, too.

Amazon’s Prime Now one-hour delivery delayed by winter storms, too


As a winter storm starts to drop several inches of snow on the northeast United States, Amazon’s advising Prime Now customers in New York City not to rely on its one-hour deliveries. The service started dropping off orders around Manhattan in mid-December, and the online retailer is already seeing a rise in demand as weather conditions get worse. “We’re watching the storm also, and will be operating on a limited schedule,” Amazon spokeswoman Kelly Cheeseman told Bloomberg. “Customers can get updates through the Prime Now app on delivery availability.” So if you’re looking to restock a few “everyday essentials,” you may want to make other arrangements.

iCloud.com Photos App Gains New Zoom, Email Features


Apple’s iCloud.com Photos app was quietly updated over the weekend, adding a new zoom option to the toolbar that lets users zoom in on photos that have been uploaded to iCloud Photo Library.

As noted by German site iFun.de, Apple’s web-based Photos app has also gained a new feature that allows users to send photos via email directly from the website, making sharing photos easier than ever before.

icloudemail
The addition of new zoom and email features follows a major November update to the iCloud.com Photos app, which began allowing users to upload photos to iCloud for the first time. Before the addition of the uploading tool, the standard iCloud.com site only allowed users to view, download, and delete iCloud Photo Library images.

With the uploading tool and new sharing features, iCloud is slowly becoming a viable and useful storage option for users who wish to upload and manage entire photo libraries. Still in beta, iCloud Photo Library was initially introduced alongside iOS 8.1, letting users sync and access all of their photos on all of their iOS devices and Macs via the web.

Apple is working on a Photos app for the Mac, which will work alongside both the Photos app on iOS and the iCloud.com Photos app on the web. Photos, which will replace both Apple’s iPhoto app and Aperture, is supposed to be launching in the early months of 2015. There’s been little word on its development since its initial June introduction, however.

Sony is getting back to longer smartphone release cycles – report


sony xperia z3 review (18 of 26)

According to a report earlier today, Sony is working on extending their smartphones’ life cycles, specifically in the Taiwan market. Jonathan Lin, General Manager of Sony’s Taiwan branch, told reporters that on top of extending the lifetime of devices, the company is planning on shifting focus to mid-range and high-end devices.

Lin explained to the reporters:

Our current strategy is on how to extend product life cycle, for which we plan to offer more mobile content and new color phones.

Lin also mentioned that most Android phones fall to the wayside 3 to 6 months after their release, and the company is working to change that. Lin explains that Taiwan’s purple version of the Xperia Z2, which launched in May 2014, accounted for nearly 40% of the device’s sales in the country. So, the company is planning on limiting smartphone releases every year and gradually launching new color options to increase profits, at least in Taiwan.

We know that Lin told Taiwan reporters this information exclusively, but we could imagine this to be true for all areas of Sony’s mobile branch. We’ve already heard reports of Sony shrinking its smartphone line, cutting 1,000 jobs and reporting a loss of $1.7 billion last year, so we already know drastic changes are ahead.

In addition to the reports from Taiwan, the Xperia Blog has received new information regarding Sony’s plans not to release the upcoming Xperia Z4 at this year’s MWC 2015. The blog also entertains the idea of a Summer release for the handset, which, if true, would leave Sony’s presence very scarce for the trade show.

Only time will tell whether or not these reports are true, so in the mean time, take a look at our Sony Xperia Z4 rumor roundup! Do you think we’ll see the Z4 at MWC this year? And if Sony extends their device’s life cycles, how much do you think it will help the company?

New Snapdragon 810 supposedly to arrive in March



The Wall Street Journal reports that Qualcomm is working on a new version of the Snapdragon 810 for March. This is in response to the overheating issues of the current Snapdragon 810.

If Samsung does include a processor other than its Exynos in the upcoming Galaxy S6, it is likely to be the 810. Talk Android tells that some analysts have said that Samsung will release the S6 in Korea on time probably running the Exynos. The company will delay it in other markets in order to use Snapdragon’s updated processor.

Some blogs are interpreting this to mean that Qualcomm is making a version of the Snapdragon 810 specifically for Samsung, but that of course has not been confirmed.
