    Good Guy Samsung Sent Me a New Battery After Giving Me a Crappy One at SXSW

    Samsung Roboray Robot Maps Its Environment in 3D, Walks Just Like a Human [Video]

    Roboray, the latest humanoid robot from Samsung, has a new trick up its sleeve. Thanks to new visual recognition software developed at the University of Bristol, the automaton can build real-time, 3D visual maps of its environment. The new software lets Roboray look at its surroundings and create a map of them as it moves -- or as things move around it -- and retain that information to remember where it has been before, which brings us one step closer to having autonomous robots walking around. If you're a fan of that idea, it's great news! If you're not, commence being terrified...now.

    It’s Now Illegal to Unlock Your Subsidized Phone, But Does it Matter?

    As of yesterday, it is now illegal to unlock a carrier-subsidized phone for use on another network.
