Yuneec debuts Typhoon ActionCam for handheld ground shots

Yuneec debuts Typhoon ActionCam for handheld ground shots

California drone-maker Yuneec has just announced a handheld stabilization camera dubbed the Typhoon ActionCam, allowing users to capture the same smooth video footage on the ground as they would in the air via the use of a drone.

LG V10 Review Part I: replacing the Galaxy Note

Over the past several years, Samsung and LG have waged a silent battle against one another. This was a battle of the big phones.

But in the same year that Samsung does away with two of these "must have" features for their most powerful smartphone, LG picks up the slack. In the LG V10 is the home for the power user.

HTC Re action camera slashed to just $50

HTC Re action camera slashed to just $50

It was around this time last year that HTC unveiled a little stand-alone camera called the Re. With its periscope shape, it was, in a single word, odd. It was a bit of a cross between an action camera and a smartphone camera, but didn't exactly excel in either category.
