TiVo Roamio OTA 1TB DVR records local over-the-air channels

TiVo has taken the wraps off its new TiVo Roamio OTA 1TB, a DVR that doesn’t require any sort of monthly subscription fees and that, says the company, has a new 1TB hard drive (able to record up to 150 hours of high-definition content). The DVR can be used to record content from local channels available via an OTA HD antenna, giving cord-cutters a way to record episodes and movies available freely over the air

iPhone 7 Pro details appear in release blueprints

iPhone 7 Pro details appear in release blueprints

While the magazine we're looking at right now suggests this might be the iPhone 7 Pro, we're leaning a bit more towards the dropping of the number altogether. Like we described in a demonstrative presentation article last week, today we're seeing a device that's far more powerful than the iPhone 6S, coming with features that will exemplify the mobile processing power of Apple's own "A" series. This device also has pogo-pins like the iPad Pro and a space for two camera lenses instead of just one.

Smartisan T2 Review : an Android/iPhone cross-breed

Smartisan T2 Review : an Android/iPhone cross-breed

The smartphone you see here is neither an iPhone nor a Google Certified Android device. It's somewhere in the middle and a bit off to one side. What we've got here is the Smartisan T2, a device that looks like an iPhone, runs a bit like an Android, and costs about what you'd pay for a high-end device that's a couple of years old. But this Smartisan T2 is brand new. What we have here is a unique proposition - a daring release in a market that relies so heavily on iOS and Android that we were shocked to find it in production.

Nokia acquires Withings to make more devices

Nokia acquires Withings to make more devices

It would seem more and more each time Nokia reveals another acquisition that they got the better end of the deal when they sold their phones division to Microsoft. Today they've announced that they've made a deal with Withings to acquire their digital health products and apps business in its entirety. This means that Nokia's back in business - in one of the most (surprisingly) long lasting sectors of the smart device universe over the past decade - health technology. Devices. Apps. Withings is about to be part of Nokia.

If you're an enthusiast that loves building new gadgets using the Raspberry Pi, then you've no doubt know about the existence of their 5MP camera board, which has been around since 2013.

Galaxy Note 6 leak tips 2x screen size potential

Galaxy Note 6 leak tips 2x screen size potential

It would seem that though Samsung has reduced the number of headliner devices it's set to release this year, they might still have a dilemma on their hands. It's been suggested by insider sources who wish to remain anonymous that Samsung isn't just considering one version of the Galaxy Note 6 for this August of September. Instead, Samsung is said to be considering whether or not the device will come with a flat display, a curved-edge display, or two different sizes altogether. Could we return to the original Galaxy Note Edge?

Android phone user DIY upgrades from 16 to 64GB internal storage

Android phone user DIY upgrades from 16 to 64GB internal storage

Imagine our surprise when the first smartphone with upgradable internal storage wasn't a Project Ara phone from Google, it was a Nexus 5 from LG. Project Ara is still a concept - blocks that fit in to a smartphone casing, allowing you to upgrade whenever you like. The LG Nexus 5, on the other hand, is a device made back in 2013. Hardly the age of a device we'd expect to be so versatile. But here it is - the way in which you might upgrade your own internal storage from a paltry 16GB all the way up to a hefty 64GB - easy peasy.

Galaxy Note 6 detail leaks may give iPhone 7 Plus a run for its money

Galaxy Note 6 detail leaks may give iPhone 7 Plus a run for its money

It would appear that Samsung's schedule for releasing Galaxy phones will once again match up - sort of - with Apple's iPhone. Not just because both devices generally appear ready for the market at around the same time of the year - Autumn. Also because Apple is said to be seeking out OLED panels this time around - at least for a phone with a 5.5-inch display - that'd match up well with the iPhone Plus line thus far. Or perhaps the iPhone 7 Pro?

AirTV set-top box tipped to bring local OTA channels to Sling TV

Sling TV will soon include local TV channels acquired through a new set-top box and antenna setup called “AirTV,” according to a new report. The set-top box would help solve a big problem for Sling TV and streaming live-TV services like it — regional affiliates of national networks like CBS and ABC, and the troubles that come with providing those local channels — and their advertisements — over the Internet.

Where is the HTC 10 Re 360 and VR headset?

Where is the HTC 10 Re 360 and VR headset?

Where is HTC's missing mobile VR gear? Wasn't this supposed to be the age of virtual reality - desktop VR and mobile VR, too? If you listen to Samsung - who've teamed up with Oculus to create the Samsung Gear VR - then yes, the age of mobile VR has begun. They're the only group in the world that has a mobile VR headset with a burgeoning VR market within, attached to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S6 and Note 4 and eventually the Note 5. But what about HTC? Is the HTC Vive going to be their only VR play?
