BARCELONA, Spain--Alcatel isn't exactly a household name but that hasn't stopped the phone maker from announcing a series of respectable devices at MWC 2013. The One Touch Snap features decidedly midrange components but likely won't affect your bank account greatly.
Under the hood you'll find a 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, a large 4.5-inch screen (960x540 pixels), 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of internal memory. All this drives the phone's Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software along at a steady clip. In fact the One Touch Snap demonstrated a decent amount of pep in … Read more

There are plenty of services that can turn your photos -- whether taken with a phone or camera or downloaded from Facebook or Instagram -- into canvas prints. One of those services, SnapBox, is worth highlighting not just for the quality of the product, but for its affordable pricing and ease of use.

Instead of creating and maintaining apps for different platforms, SnapBox decided to use e-mail instead for its ordering process. All you need to do is attach the photo you want printed to an e-mail and send it to email@example.com. … Read more
Let me give you a glimpse into my household's organizational strategy. When the occasional need arises for a run to Bed Bath & Beyond, I rummage through the junk drawer in the kitchen to see if any of the half dozen or so BB&B coupons scattered in there are still valid, only to discover the sad fact that all have reached their expiration date. I then trudge off to the store empty handed, fully expecting a coupon to arrive in the mail within a day or two. It is no way to live, but now that I am using SnipSnap, my fruitless junk-drawer searches are a thing of the past.
SnipSnap is a free coupon app for the iPhone. With it, you can either scan a printed coupon or search for previously scanned coupons by other SnipSnap users. I downloaded the app because I was hoping to be able to use it with iOS 6's new Passbook app, but such functionality won't be ready until October. Even without Passbook integration, SnipSnap is a, well, snap to use. Here's how it works:… Read more
In today's show, Facebook shareholders are fuming, Windows Phones need updating and Prime subscribers are streaming:
Facebook and several banks have been slapped with a lawsuit, accused of hiding some details about revenue estimates days before the stock went public. The charge is this: Facebook spoke with select analysts about additional information on revenue expectations than what was disclosed in amended filings. Smaller investors are upset they were left out of the loop, and say they lost money because they didn't know the full picture. But even if Facebook did give extra info to analysts, it's not … Read more
