Wileyfox enters administration

It’s been confirmed that Wileyfox, the UK mobile phone manufacturer and retailer, has been placed into administration resulting in redundancy for 20 of its staff.

UK-based Wileyfox enters administration to restructure its debt

United Kingdom-based phone manufacturer Wileyfox entered the Android smartphone scene in 2015, when it released the Storm and Switft phones. The low-end Spark was released later, in mid-2016. They were budget phones running the short-lived Cyanogen OS, and when Cyanogen collapsed, the company started developing its own ROM.

A community manager at Wileyfox has revealed on Reddit that Wileyfox is undergoing administration. For those of you not familiar with it, administration is a process in the UK where a company gives full control of itself to a person (or small group of people), in order to pay off debts to creditors.

CrossOver for Android and Chrome OS enters open beta

CrossOver by CodeWeavers has been available for Mac and Linux for years, allowing users of those operating systems to run some Windows programs without a copy of Windows. It does this by utilizing Wine, an open-source Windows compatibility layer for Unix-based operating systems (CodeWeavers is one of the main contributors to Wine’s codebase).

CodeWeavers released the first preview build of CrossOver for Android over a year ago, allowing Chrome OS devices with the Play Store (and standalone Android devices) to run Windows applications, as long as they had an x86-based processor.

LG V30 enters the JerryRigEverything torture chamber, emerges mostly unscathed

The LG V30 was announced way back at IFA almost two months ago, but it’s only just started shipping to consumers. This phone is almost unbelievably light but that doesn’t mean it’s not sturdy. The latest LG phone has gone through usual JerryRigEverything durability tests and it managed to remain in one piece.

The JerryRigEverything test consists of scratch, flame, and bend portions. The scratch test verifies that the V30’s screen is as durable as other phones sporting Gorilla Glass 5.

Shure enters the Bluetooth earphone game with its $100 buds


Having tested a bunch of wireless earphones over the past few months, I’ve been glad to not have to wrestle with a cable that tangles in seconds in my pocket. But I haven’t been particularly impressed by the sound of sets that cost between $ 150 and $ 200. That’s why I’m excited to hear what Shure has in store. The pro audio brand has just launched its new SE112 and SE215 Bluetooth buds, which cost $ 100 and $ 149 respectively. Now, these aren’t truly wireless as the buds are connected with a short cable – but hopefully they’ll manage to pump out…
