Facebook Home has been dominating a lot of technology news headlines over the past few days, following it’s announcement last week. The Android launcher is due for an official release on a handful of devices this Friday, the 12th of April. However, the application APK files have been leaked onto the internet today, and are available to install right now on a number of unsupported devices, including the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.
UK retailer Carphone Warehouse have posted a page detailing all the still-to-be-announced features of the Google Nexus 4, the next handset in the Nexus line. Unfortunately for Google, the page isn’t just a leaked image, it reveals all the upcoming features which were expected to be announced at Google’s Android event next week.
Poor Apple. It must be extremely stressful trying to hide a product which has more media attention than any other product in the world.
As predicted, the next iPhone has been high in the minds of any tech reporter, with the leak of images of the supposed iPhone 5, as well as leaked details and release dates to come from several manufacturers and suppliers around the world.
Today a repair shop named iLab have released images of another leaked iPhone 5. What makes this leak so special is that it’s the first time we have seen a clear picture of the next iPhone in it’s complete form.
Like all leaks, this can’t be confirmed.
If you are one of the many LinkedIn users, now might be a very good time to change your password.
A user of a Russian forum has claimed to have hacked the passwords of around 6.46 million accounts. We’re not yet sure whether the user names have also been compromised.
So far, there hasn’t been a confirmation on the leak, however earlier today LinkedIn tweeted the following.
Our team is currently looking into reports of stolen passwords. Stay tuned for more.

The Galaxy SIII is set to come with a huge amount of new features, which Android developers and modders will be desperate to get their hands on for other devices
Earlier this week the entire ROM of the SIII was leaked, but not for public use. From this ROM developers have been hard at work to bring you some of the features which Samsung intend for only their customers.
The first feature to leak to the public is ‘S Voice’, Samsung’s attempt to beat Apple’s Siri.
The whopping 25mb APK file only works on phones running Android 4.0 and up, and I use the term ‘work’ loosely. At the moment many users are reporting force closures, including me. I have experienced a couple of network errors, and the occasional force close.
To give it a try for yourself, use one of the links below. A lot of the links I noticed weren’t working due to the huge amount of people that were trying to download it, so I uploaded the file for you to download my self.

If you have trouble with getting it to work, you may need to change the permissions. Use Root Explorer for this, and change the permissions so it looks like this.
Let me know if you get it working, and what you think!
