Rhino Slider & Motion review; a must-have movement in photography

Rhino Slider & Motion review; a must-have movement in photography

I have a confession: I love House of Cards. Part of the reason for my obsession is the opening sequence (and probably Kevin Spacey’s oddly passable/terrible accent). The time-lapse, gently rolling through various points of Washington D.C., is just magical. I’ve always wanted to do something like that, but it seemed like an investment beyond the scope of what I was willing to spend (HoC uses a RED Camera!). Rhino isn’t asking much of me, though. Motion pairs a slider with a simple motor for fine-tuned live motion time-lapse, and — spoiler alert — it’s awesome.

Ring Doorbell hits retail, gains ‘Chime’ accessory

Ring, your connected doorbell and two-way intercom, is going off the grid. You can still use all the features you know Ring offers, like smartphone notifications when someone wants to come inside and the two-way voice chat (and one-way video feature), but a new accompaniment lets you tune your smartphone out. No, not an Apple Watch app — an actual doorbell chime. Ring now has a connected doorbell chime, and you can hook up as many of them around your home as you like.

Apple tells accessory makers how to make Apple Watch bands

Apple tells accessory makers how to make Apple Watch bands

We knew this day would come, and we're actually wondering why that day only arrived now. Apple has released guidelines that tell accessory makers exactly how it wants Apple Watch bands to be made. In Apple's carefully guarded and curated world, this isn't exactly a surprise, though the lucrative market of third-party unofficial accessories remain, well, lucrative. But it remains to be seen if that will also be the case with the Apple Watch, which Apple is keeping a close eye on, from charging accessories and now to the most personalized part of the devide: the strap.

Apple Watch diagnostic port could be used for faster charging

Apple Watch diagnostic port could be used for faster charging

The purpose of the Apple Watch's diagnostic port, hidden behind the watch strap, largely remains a mystery, especially why the port remains in retail versions of the device. But for now, some rather enterprising accessory makers are willing to take advantage of its existence to provide something that other accessories might not be able to: faster, wired charging. One of these is Reserve Strap, who is redesigning their strap accessory to utilize that port for charging, instead of relying on Apple's sanctioned magnetic charging port.
