Wonder how your smartphone is being made? Starting from the plastic mock-ups of the phone design to the engineering specs to how they decide to fit what component in the phone.
A brief summary from Engadget's website states that they would also have user focus groups whereby they starve the user of the phone for 2 weeks and see what features that they miss the most (Supposedly to put that feature in the new phone).
Even things like colour matter as they cannot be the colour of any carrier in the States or it might discourage other carriers to carry the phone. With all this fuss, HTC can spend more than $50,000 per phone phototype.

Microsoft has released a new edition of Windows 8 for the Enterprise user. Some of the new features that would be added includes the Windows to Go program whereby you can bring your office image of the computer to your home computer in a USB stick, allowing users to bring their own personal computer to work. In addition to that, they would simplify the use of VPN for office workers.
Have Microsoft ever thought of having the old classical Windows 7 start screen as default for Enterprise version as touchscreens are not even the dominant force in the PC market today? What do you think?

Cubitek, a manufacturer of PC chassis, is pleased to announce their new line of chassis – ICE Series. Including 5 new models, these ICE Series chassis using a 2.5(mm) extrusion aluminum construction are stronger than standard aluminum cases, yet thinner than other extrusion aluminum chassis on the market. This unique build gives ICE Series a strong frame while still keeping a more lightweight design.
5 Models from Mini-ITX to HPTX
Cubitek's ICE Series features five new models designed for different sized motherboards:
. Mini ICE (US$169.90)
. Micro ICE (US$259.90)
. ATX ICE (US$279.90)
. EATX ICE (US$319.90)
. HPTX ICE (US$359.90)
The sturdy extrusion aluminum frame translates to reduced vibration. The hard drives inside the cage body are mounted with thick rubber rings.
Efficient Thermal Cooling
The extrusion aluminum build dissipates heat faster than steel built chassis keeping your system cool. From mATX on up, all models feature a large 200(mm) fan in the front as well as a 140(mm) on the top and a 120(mm) fan in the back. The well-placed fans and interior layout keep your hardware at optimum system temperatures.
Motherboard Tray Designed for Cable Management
The motherboard tray is well-designed with large cut-outs for CPU cooler mounting and plenty of rubber protected holes to guide cables to the 0.7” (19mm ) space behind the motherboard tray. The u-shaped clips behind the motherboard allow you to easily fasten you wires ,making cable management easy and keeping your system neat and organized.
Easy Access Connectivity
All five models of the ICE Series feature an easy-to-reach I/O panel on the top of the chassis including: 2x USB 3.0 ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports, and gold-plated audio input/output with anti-jamming capabilities.
