Everyone is raving about the Google Pixel 2 XL’s screen burn-in issues. People who have never even touched a Pixel smartphone, much less owned one, have been obnoxiously quick to hop on a bandwagon riot against the second-generation Mountain View device. Some of the most ardent haters are, as you may expect, Apple groupies. But is this new evidence that Google phones suck?
Ever since the iPhone 7, there has been an addition to the list of things smartphones can usually endorse as features – the inclusion of a headphone jack. Not that Apple was the first to exclude what for years has been considered a mandatory part of any personal computing device from their smartphone. But because it’s Apple and the iPhone is the most popular phone in the world. So it sets the standard.
Apple changed a lot of things in iOS 11 to make it a far better operating system with a far superior user experience, but it still needs some love in one particular area: notifications. The slightest improvement doesn’t outweigh the gaping hole in the software.
Apple recently launched their biggest and most expensive iPhone ever, iPhone X, touting it as “the future of smartphones.” One the main features alongside the completely bezel-less front display are what they call Face ID, a facial recognition technology for unlocking the phone and other authentication requiring tasks such as payment with Apple Pay.

According to a new report by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the highly-anticipated Apple iPhone 8 will have no fingerprint sensor. Instead, it’ll be replaced with a face-recognition system.
Once again, Apple is last to the party. Fashionably late maybe, but late, nonetheless. Silicon Valley’s finest introduces a brand new device: A voice-controlled home assistant speaker. Just like everyone else.
As with most parties, it’s hard to appreciate a fashionably late arrival when the perpetrator hasn’t helped send out invitations, set up decorations, plan activities, or even bring a side dish. Pretty socially un-cool. So did Apple bring something new to the table, or did it just copy everyone else (again)? Continue reading “HomePod on the range”
Fall is coming and several smartphone flagships have yet to be revealed. Of course, there has been rumor after rumor, but today, I wanted to ask you what would be your top choice for an upcoming smartphone? Also, feel free to comment what price point you think they should be set at and what features you feel it should include. The poll is embedded below.
We don’t do much Apple news here, but it’s no secret that the iPhone 8 is gearing up to be one of the most popular phones of 2017. This isn’t merely because it’s another iPhone, either. What sets the 10th generation Apple device apart from its predecessors is its inclusion of modern hardware.
