Surface Book 2 15-inch goes up for pre-order in 17 new markets

The Surface Book 2 is a pretty solid piece of hardware, assuming you've got the money to put down for one. The device is still relatively young, having only launched back in November, and thus far, only its 13-inch models have been available in most regions. That all changes today, as Microsoft has announced that it's bringing the 15-inch Surface Book 2 to 17 new markets.

Hasselblad H6D-400c MS camera produces 400MP 2.3GB images

Smartphones have gotten quite good, even great, at capturing moments on the fly, but there will always be room for more professional use cases, from super slow mo to very high resolution images. For those, you’ll need specialized equipment, like the new H6D-400c multi-shot camera from Hasselblad. If you thought 2016’s H6D-100c was already impressive with its 100 megapixel output, you’ll probably be even more impressed with a 400 megapixel 16-bit TIFF image that will take up 2.3 GB of space on your data storage.

Messages on iOS, macOS crash when receiving this link

Gone are the days when instant messaging pranks simply involved clicking on links that would take you to some scary, funny, or shocking image or video. These days, a prank can cause your messaging app or, worse, your phone, to crash and restart, sometimes repeatedly. That has exactly been the case with Apple’s Messages app, for both iOS and macOS, which has, time and again, been vulnerable to such bugs. The latest one, nicknamed “chaiOS” is at least less destructive but still very disruptive.

Moto Z3, X5, G6 details arrive in massive leak dump

With CES 2018 far behind us, it’s time to look forward to the next big tech event, one that promises to bring a good serving of new smartphones from almost all brands (save for LG, perhaps). Motorola might have one or two to show off in a month’s time, but not before those new models get leaked to death. Droid Life has managed to secure not one, not even two, but three leaks for a total of six phones. And some look too good to be true.

Amazon Echo Spot available now in the UK

The battle of the AI assistants and their devices is on. At CES 2018, a large portion of consumer electronics revolved around or, at the very least, supported the likes of Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Sometimes even both. As the competition, not to mention the nastiness, between the two heats up, so do the expansion to global markets. Hot on the heels of CES, Amazon is finally making available in the UK one of its latest, and oddest, products, the Echo Spot.

Xperia XZ Pro details leaked ahead of MWC 2018

Sony is one of those companies that, despite all odds and sagging mobile business revenues, continue to churn out phone after phone, year after year. In Sony’s case, however, it’s often with very little change from one phone to another. It first “biggest” change came in the Xperia XA2 announced last week, putting the fingerprint sensor on the back and, in the case of the Xperia XA2 Ultra, has two front-facing cameras. The changing trend might continue to the Xperia XZ Pro, believed to debut next month at MWC 2018, though it might be one change too many for Sony.
