Don’t Forget About the Flipside

BGR asks, Does Nokia have a backup plan if its bet on camera quality falls through? My question is, does the Lumia 1020 have equally amazing camera software for their camera hardware?

Link Dump 30.07.13

If I keep letting all these saved links pile up, my computer will most definitely burst. Some of these have been sitting around a while, sorry if you’ve seen them already. The Car Crush – “I believe there is a car crush waiting out there for everyone, and if I’m doing my job then you […]
