Apple’s new Mac Pro 2013 may not be on sale yet, but that hasn’t stopped the compact new workstation from cropping up in benchmarks and, in the process, giving us a hint of its Xeon E5-powered performance. Logitech has broken its smartphone universal remote bridge away from its dedicated remotes, and will offer it as a standalone gadget for iPhone and Android users as the Harmony Ultimate Hub. Third-party batteries may be a cheaper alternative than going the official route, but they’re not always the best route to take when it comes to powering your expensive hardware. Way back in March, we saw benchmarks leak for the LG Optimus G successor, the oft-referred to Optimus G2. According to sources said to be familiar with the matter, Microsoft looked into buying Nokia‘s handset business, having done so “recently,” possibly even this month. On April 2, the huge Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 was leaked by some sources, as well as a smaller 5.8-inch model. Earlier this week, Nokia sent invitations for an event called “Zoom Reinvented,” and the following day we saw images surface of a Nokia handset in prototype form said to be of the Nokia EOS, which is questionable. We’ve seen different battery innovations popup this year, such as the microbatteries revealed back in April that are as powerful as they are small. We’ve heard talk about a possible Viacom partnership with Twitter before, bringing with it social TV show clips. Microsoft has announced that it is kicking off three bounty programs this month to encourage hackers to find bugs and exploitations.
