It seems like yesterday that we were covering Lincoln's own Frequency Digital Culture Festival, showcasing the most innovative of digital arts. Being the first event covered by New Rising Media, it's been a huge inspiration in the direction taken by all of us. Now here we stand, two years on, with the second Frequency just around the corner, and what a ride it's been! Well, we've got some great news: we're delighted to announce that New Rising Media will once again be a news partner for Frequency 2013.
The iPhone 5S has been announced at an event in California. Maintaining the same design as the previous generation, following the standard launch cycle set by Apple, the hardware has seen a considerable upgrade.
Google has confirmed that the next version of Android will be called KitKat. No, I'm not joking, KitKat, as in that chocolate bar available in either fingers or the chunky variety, will be the codename for Android 4.4. This keeps Android's tradition of naming each version after desserts; but this is the first with a deeply integrated (and rather delicious) joint marketing venture.
Nintendo has unveiled a new low-cost version of the 3DS that plays games in 2D. It will be released in the UK on October 12th for £109.99, according to pricing by GAME. This is probably one of the more confusing product decisions we've seen from the company in recent times, including the Wii-U.

Nokia have announced the Lumia 925, their latest flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone, at today's event in London.
Following all previous rumours, and yesterday's leaked images, the Finnish smartphone maker has finally taken the official wraps off the phone. It's quite similar in design cues to the previous models in the Lumia line, but it has a twist: it's made from aluminium. The rear of the device is still made from polycarbonate, and the front is a pane of glass; but the aluminium surround marks a new shift for Nokia's material-centric design.
Invitations have been released for the announcement of a next-generation Xbox in Redmond on May 21st. Ever since Sony announced the PS4 two months ago, all eyes have been on Microsoft to see how their new console will stack up. At 10am Pacific Time on the 21st of next month, Microsoft's Don Mattrick will reveal the "Xbox 720." And while it will be limited to select press, Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has confirmed the event will be streamed live.
After years of speculation, Mark Zuckerberg talked about that Facebook Phone. Introducing 'Home,' a deep software integration with Android, that takes over the homescreen and designs your phone around "people, not apps." HTC's Peter Chou also took to the stage at the social network's campus in California to announce the HTC First, a hardware realisation of Facebook's vision.
Samsung have unveiled the Galaxy S4, their next generation smartphone at the 'UNPACKED' event. Titled the 'Life Companion,' it brings a new set of features to the table. Aesthetically, little has changed; but plenty of software and hardware upgrades are present.
