Q2 2013

The second quarter of 2013 ended… three weeks ago, but whatever. Better late than never, right?

April 4th: Facebook hosts an event to announce their Facebook Home software and their collaboration product with HTC, the HTC First. The First was later taken off the market. https://thetechnorth.wordpress.com/2013/04/06/facebook-home-and-htc-first/

April 11th: Electronic Arts wins The Consumerist’s “Worst Company in America” award – for the second year in a row. You’re clearly not getting the message, are you, EA? https://thetechnorth.wordpress.com/2013/04/11/ea-wins-the-consumerists-worst-company-in-america-award-for-the-second-year-in-a-row/

April 20th: Google announces its plans to expand the Google Fiber network to… Provo, Utah. A.K.A. Nowhere, USA. https://thetechnorth.wordpress.com/2013/04/20/google-fiber-coming-to-two-new-cities/

May 6th: The first 3D printed gun is fired on video. The blueprints were available to download on the internet. Look, you moron, how about you use a 3D printer to make something non-destructive, like maybe a 3D printed cake? https://thetechnorth.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/first-3d-printed-gun-fired-on-video-blueprints-available-for-download/

May 15th-17th: Google I/O is hosted in San Francisco. And, uh, pretty much nothing happened.

May 20th: Yahoo! buys Tumblr for $1.1 billion. Wait, Yahoo! still exists?

May 21st: Microsoft unleashes their next generation of home gaming console, the Xbox One. It has been widely speculated that this will be the least successful console of its generation.

June 10th-14th: Apple’s WWDC is held in San Francisco. iOS is sent in a time machine to the year 2050.

June 11th-13th: E3 happens.in LA. TheTechNorth reacts with a solid meh.
