Facebook is bringing back F8, the company's major developer conference, for the first time in almost three years
The F8 conference is scheduled for April 30 at the Design Concourse in San Francisco, and Facebook expects more than 1,500 developers from around the world to be in attendance
Facebook doesn't host F8 conferences on a set schedule; the last F8 took place in September 2011. But that doesn't mean the company takes the conference lightly Read more...More about Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, F8, Sxsw, and Andy Samberg

Building a camera is not easy. I know this because I spent nearly two hours during a recent weekend trying to put together the Lomography Konstruktor, a DIY 35mm film SLR (single-lens reflex) camera.
Lomography is widely known for its toy cameras. The Diana and Fisheye Baby are two popular toy cameras that come to mind. And while buying a film camera instead of a digital one today is akin to buying a bulky CRT television instead of a flatscreen high-definition TV, that hasn't stopped Lomography from releasing cameras that try to bring back the nostalgia of the bygone analog days. With a low $35 price, is the Konstruktor more toy than camera? Read more...More about Reviews, Diy, Cameras, Tech, and Gadgets

We deserve better. It's a common refrain among video game developers who work with major publishers. Churning out the latest iteration of Call of Duty or Assassin's Creed takes its toll: inflated workweeks and 12-hour days, lists of notes and changes from the faceless entities of EA and Activision and the like, with simultaneous requests to pick up the pace — all the while making a tiny percentage of the game's profits, not knowing if there will be another job when the project ends.
"The publishing people all watch [a game] and then make passive, aesthetic appraisals of active, functional aspects of a game," wrote an anonymous developer, delivering a blistering attack of major game publishers. "This is because the bulk of execs can't and don't want to play or understand how games work." Read more...More about Gaming, Developers, Features, Publishers, and Video Games

Admit it: You saw the headline and snickered. But this sh*t is real, man
Apps and handling your "business" go together like, well, nobody's business. For proof, look no further than the study that once found 16% of cellphones have poop on them. And, like all universal human truths, this one's even been immortalized in a song: Paul the Trombonist's catchy — and oh-so-aptly titled — "Playing With Your Phone While Sitting on the Toilet."
But let's be real: Not just any app will do when you doo-doo, and that even goes for some of our favorites. Take Twitter, for example. Great app. Full of information, links and longreads. But getting sucked down that rabbit hole can be problematic, and not just because you'll be late to your next appointment — too much time on the pot can lead to hemorrhoids. And no one wants those Read more...More about Apps, Features, Toilet, Apps Software, and Mobile

When it comes to smartphone purchases, men and women want the same thing: not too expensive, intuitive features and holds a charge like a champ.
However, there are subtle differences between men and women's preferences in a new phone. According to a new Nielsen survey conducted in more than 58 countries, female respondents cared more about price, contract terms and camera capabilities; men gravitated toward attributes such as operating system, screen size and processor speed.Mobile, Gadgets, Tech, Smartphones, and Work Play
