Nokia’s Here Maps to have Windows 8.1 version

If you think Bing Maps is lacking, then the arrival of Nokia’s Here Maps might provide you with the functionalities you need. Nokia claims the mapping software will make its way to Windows 8.1 devices in the coming days, first for North America and Europe users before the rest of the world.

Here Maps used to just be available on the Lumia 2520 tablet and Windows Phone 8 smartphones. Now, it will give Windows 8.1 users capabilities such as being able to load offline maps as fast as their computers can. It will also keep track of navigation routes and search history. Satellite images will be available at higher resolutions. Here Maps will also come with keyboard and mouse support.

US Postage Stamp featuring Steve Jobs considered for 2015

Stamp mock-up by Gadjo C. Sevilla

The Washington Post has uncovered a list of possible subjects for upcoming US Postage Stamps and among them is Apple founder Steve Jobs. Slated for production in 2015, the stamps will be a limited release. Other celebrities getting stamped include Science Fiction Writers, Peanuts, Johnny Carson, James Brown and Elvis. The actual stamp is still being designed so there's no inkling on which iconic Jobs image will be used. Perhaps they should release a series of stamps, one for each revolutionary product category Jobs ushered in.

Render of BlackBerry Q30/Windemere smartphone shows a best of both worlds device

BlackBerry's Z30 is an accomplished smartphone that has power and functionality as well as substantial innovation to set it apart from the other flagship devices. It is one of the best 5-inch devices that you can actually use with one hand and now that it can run Android apps, it is also one of the more dynamic smartphone choices out there. There's been some talk about the Q30, which takes the best parts of the Z30 and the keyboard of the Q10. The rendering above gives us an idea of what this device could look like and it is quite elegant, specially for users that are hankering for another QWERTY enabled BlackBerry and possibly a larger one.
