    French 'roomies' lead the Colsaerts chase - Yahoo Sports 1 hour ago

        Nicolas Colsaerts boomed out a 64 to take the lead in the BMW Masters Friday, but it will be two French room-mates who will mount an assault on the Belgian in Saturday's third round. Alexander Levy is one shot behind Colsaerts on 13-under par after he followed his opening 65 with a solid 66 over the par-72 Lake Malaren layout. Romain Wattel -- who is sharing a room in Shanghai with long-time friend Levy -- shot 67 Friday to be third on 12-under 132. Levy, who earlier this month pipped Colsaerts to the title at the rain-shortened Portugal Masters, refuted any suggestion the two might get sick of the sight of each other, playing golf all day and then sharing a room all night.

    Sharp smartband LCD uses 1,000 times less power - PC World NEW!

        Sharp is developing a “color memory LCD panel” for wearables that has dramatically lower power consumption, allowing smartbands, smartwatches and other devices with small displays to be used far longer.The prototype panel, described as being in the 1-inch class size, uses 1,000 times less power than conventional LCDs in mobile devices and is slated to go into mass production in Japan next spring, a Sharp spokeswoman said.It’s able to sip tiny amounts of power because its design uses two savings approaches—doing away with the energy-draining backlight and using semiconductor memory.Instead of a backlight, it makes use of ambient light and reflector layers inside pixels to illuminate what’s on the display.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

    RĂ©publique makes console-like stealth action memorable on mobile - PC World NEW!

Can you imagine the finger gymnastics needed to simply get around tactfully amidst the constant peril? It’d be a mess.Maybe that’s why I’m so drawn to RĂ©publique ($3), which made a big splash on Kickstarter a couple years back and just landed on Android after a successful launch on iOS late last year.
