Companies issue financial results four times a year. Nothing new. Samsung will publish their Q1 2013 financial results later this month, but today they’ve announced something known as “pre-earnings guidance“. That’s a fancy way of saying sneak peek.
When Google announced that they’re going to fork WebKit and start writing their own rendering engine called Blink, one of the biggest unknowns was when the new code would land in release software.

Mozilla, a company that once upon a time made an amazing browser called Firefox, has just announced that they’re working together with Samsung on a new browser engine. Said engine is called “Servo” and it’s built using a new Mozilla developed programming language called “Rust”.
Retuers, who doesn’t publish a rumor unless they know it’s going to happen, says Google will begin selling an updated Nexus 7 in July. Said tablet will be made by ASUS, just like the first one, but the NVIDIA Tegra chip will be swapped out for a Qualcomm Snapdragon, mainly due to power concerns.
