Now you can look up your Google search history on any device or computer.
With the new search history feature you can quickly find and get back to sites you’ve been to and see items you have starred, not just on your Android device or iPhone but searches you’ve made on your desktop or laptop can also be viewed.
It’s a convenient way to or desktop searches to find back the site you search a few hours or day or weeks earlier. The integration between mobile devices and computers really makes this new feature tremendously useful. All you need to do is sign in with your google account and then tap the history link at the bottom of the Google homepage in your mobile browser.
If you’ve enabled search history in your account (tap “Settings” and select “Save Searches” under “Search History”, then tap “Save”), the history that you see is a combination of all your searches done while you are signed-in, whether you are searching from a laptop at home, your desktop computer at work, or your phone while on-the-go.
Head on over to Google Mobile Blog for a quick start-up guide.
Though we find it a bit weird that there’s no way to include searches made from the Google iPhone app into the search history function.
If you’re wondering which country is selling the cheapest non-contract, unlocked iPhone 4, well look no further than Singapore where you can get an unlocked, no contract 32GB iPhone 4 for about RM2,450 (a 16GB version is around RM2,074).
Technically Hong Kong is cheaper by about RM20 but you have to factor in the flight cost and the time it takes to fly there so the savings is really not that worth it.
Click on the main picture for a larger image and see how the iPhone 4 is priced around the world. The creator of the infographic made it simple for everyone to find the cheapest price by excluding locked iPhone 4s and iPhone 4s that are unlock but require a contract to be purchased. Everything is pretty self-explanatory, you’ll get the drift pretty quickly.
Reuters reported that Sharp — the biggest mobile phone manufacturer in Japan — is planning to launch a smartphone with a 3D LCD display that doesn’t require you to wear those dorky 3D glasses.
On top of that, the Sharp 3D phone will very likely come packing a camera that’s capable of taking 3D images. Apart from that, little else is revealed about the 3D phone. A spokesperson from Sharp said that the brand’s 3D phone is slated for international launch late this year.
And if you’re wondering why 3D displays that don’t require 3d glasses are not implemented on panel TVs, well it’s because devices with small screens make it much easier to have 3D screens due to the fact that people using these devices tend to look at the display from a fixed distance and angle, making it technologically less difficult to offer a 3D function.
That explains the reason why the 3D camera we saw a few months back (main picture above) could display 3D images without the need for 3D glasses.
3D smartphones, does that turn you on?

We’ve not gotten our hands on RIM’s latest BlackBerry but it’s safe to say that we expected much more from the Torch.
For starters, the BlackBerry Torch has the lowest resolution touchscreen phone this side of the iPhone 4, Samsung Galaxy S and HTC Desire. It runs on a 624MHz processor (albeit with a generous 512MB of RAM) when it’s competitors are running 1GHz chips with on board GPUs. It doesn’t have fancy dual mics, no fancy Super AMOLED or Retina Display, doesn’t record HD videos, doesn’t do FaceTime calls and does not double up as a MiFi device. What’s so special about the Torch then?
Essentially, from what we’re seeing the Torch is just a Bold 9700 combined with a Storm 2 running BlackBerry 6. What does the Torch have against its competitors? Some might argue that Berrys have the best physical QWERTY out there but those people probably haven’t tried SWYPE. Some would argue there’s BlackBerry Messenger, we say, that’s hardly a USP and you can BBM on the entry-level Curve you don’t really need to get the Torch. Others would argue that BlackBerry servers are efficient on data thus making surfing the web faster, if you think that, then you’ll have to take a look at this video here.
So what does the BlackBerry Torch have that sets it apart from the best that Apple and Android has to offer? We can’t find any but don’t take our word for it, take a look after the jump, what prominent reviewers who already have their hands on a BlackBerry Torch think about the device.
But before you make the jump, we got to make it clear that we got this from Tech Republic’s Jason Hiner’s original article on the BlackBerry Torch. You can read that here.
And another thing, what are your thoughts on the BlackBerry Torch? Do you think it will lesen the great exodus of users who are on BlackBerry but thinking on making the switch to an Android device or iPhone 4? Alright, now you can make the jump.
