Pokevision makes Pokemon Go hunting a snap

If you are really into Pokemon Go you may care more about catching them all than you do about all the walking. The idea behind the Pokemon Go game is that you get out, walk, and interact with like-minded people while catching the little creatures. There could be very good reasons why you don’t want to walk around as intended to find those Pokemon though, like the fact that its roughly 197F here in Texas right now.

Galaxy Note 7 images leak along with iris scanner demo video

Some new pictures, a video and some details on the iris scanner claimed to be of the Galaxy Note 7 have turned up to shed more light on the coming smartphone. The video, which you can see at the bottom of this story, shows the iris scanner in action. I think maybe showing a video of a phone you are leaking with footage of your face unlocking the iris scanner isn’t the best way to stay anonymous, but it's very nice to see how fast the scanner unlocks the phone.

HTC, HP said to be working on a Vive PC for VR

LG tipped to have foldable displays, smartphones in the works

LG tipped to have foldable displays, smartphones in the works

Although the media portrays Apple as Samsung's eternal rival, the Korean manufacturer also has an equally potent competitor right in its own backyard. Samsung and LG have always gone head to head with one another in a rat's race of who will come out first with the newest piece of technology. So it is no surprise that LG is now tipped to also be at the cusp of having a foldable display and, soon, a foldable smartphone, right when market watchers predict Samsung to reveal such devices next year.

OPPO F1s tipped to flaunt 16MP front camera for selfies

Oh the extents people, and companies, will go to in order to get that "perfect" selfie. Some smartphone manufacturers even promote their stuff as the ultimate selfie smartphone.

If the leaked info is true, then the OPPO F1s, which the company has been teasing since Monday, will actually come with a whopping 16 megapixel front camera, one of the highest in the market so far.

New NVIDIA Titan X promises even more “irresponsible peformance”

New NVIDIA Titan X promises even more “irresponsible peformance”

Back in early 2015, NVIDIA unveiled what it billed was the biggest jump in supercomputing. But while it poised the Titan X as the world's fastest GPU, it quickly dethroned that itself when it introduced the GTX 1080 a year later. Now the Titan X is back with a vengeance. It still has the same name, albeit with a "new" prepended to it, but now packs even more cores and more transistors than either the GTX 1080 or its predecessor. Naturally, it also packs a higher price tag.

BlackBerry will still make smartphones against all odds

BlackBerry will still make smartphones against all odds

The past years haven't exactly been kind to BlackBerry, once the king of enterprise smartphones. Although every new device it puts out is naturally touted as a hit, targeting very specific demographics, none have been able to pull the company out of its slump. That, however, isn't stopping CEO John Chen from putting out more smartphones, one of which is already expected this year. That despite the growing opinion that BlackBerry should step out of the smartphone hardware business entirely.

EFF sues US government on how DMCA threatens security research

EFF sues US government on how DMCA threatens security research

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act or DMCA has been one of the most debated laws affecting the tech industry. While the intention to protecty copyright in this modern age is commendable, the DMCA has often been waved around by giant companies, like record labels, as a threat to those who make even the slightest error in using, say, music in a YouTube video. That law happens to also impose restrictions in security research, which digital rights advocate Electronic Frontier Foundation or EFF is now challenging by suing the US government.

Pokemon GO is finally, once and for all, available in Japan

Pokemon GO is finally, once and for all, available in Japan

It was perhaps the ultimate irony. A franchise that originated in Japan and a game that started its beta test in Japan has only know arrived in Japan, after around 30 countries have enjoyed the insanity first. But at least for the Pokefaithful and the Pokemaniacs, the long, painful wait is finally over. Yes, Pokemon GO is now available at long last in Japan, which means we're probably about to get overloaded with all the wacky antics and ads that the country is famous, or notorious, for.

Superbook blasts through Kickstarter to turn phones into laptops

Superbook blasts through Kickstarter to turn phones into laptops

That went by really quick. Superbook, the "thin" shell that practically converts your Android smartphone into a laptop has zoomed past its crowdfunding goal in less than 12 hours. Unsurprising given its $99 base pledge. Not so small a feat either in comparison to the team's previous crowdfunding attempt with almost the same goals, albeit with a dock limited to certain smartphone models. With funding now secured and more still coming in, all that's left is to see if they will be able to deliver, on time or not, unlike so many other failed similar promises.
