Google's new Nexus 7 tablets now available for pre-order via Best Buy
Well, well, well. It seems that BestBuy is trying to pre-empt almighty Google's announcement which happens later today. Proudly displayed on the retailer's site are two landing pages of what appears to be Google's next-generation Nexus 7 tablets.
Even more surprising is the pre-order status of the said tablets, which is set at $229.99 for the 16GB model, and $269.99, for the 32GB variant. Not only are we seeing the specs, but we're also looking at high-resolution images of the tablet. The first thing that you will notice is the Android OS, which cannot be recognized as Jelly Bean 4.1 or 4.2. A further look below the specs revealsAndroid 4.3 Jelly Bean as its OS, which explains the new "limy" look of the UI.
The specs include a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 8064 processor, 2GB DDR3LM memory, 16GB on-board flash memory, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera. Also, the "Nexus" wording on its back has been arranged horizontally, unlike the current Nexus 7 model.

Apple's first wearable will not ship until 2015
If true, Apple, as it has always been, must be very confident about its timing. After all, it will be the company's new product from an entirely different category, and people will most likely be patient about it.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
