Nokia 3 V Verizon phone de-emphasizes cameras

Nokia 3 V Verizon phone de-emphasizes cameras

The cost of the Nokia 3 V for Verizon in the USA is almost more important than the abilities with which it is delivered. If you were to read the documentation with which the device is revealed, you'd find the word "camera" only once, and no mention of what this device's camera is able to capture. This phone is a simple piece of hardware capable of smart functionality.

Cerebras WSE’s giant chip with 1.2 trillion transistors is made for AI

Cerebras WSE’s giant chip with 1.2 trillion transistors is made for AI

The current trend in computing has been to reduce the size of components for both space efficiency and manufacturing considerations. All of that while not sacrificing the processing power needed even for the most intensive computing use cases. For AI and machine learning, however, the power needed goes beyond what regular commercial processors can offer given that trend. That is why young company Cerebras has developed a new "AI-first" chip that throws that convention out the window with what is probably the largest chip ever built.

Kasa Smart Video Doorbell is TP-Link’s latest casualty

Kasa Smart Video Doorbell is TP-Link’s latest casualty

As one of the most popular brands in networking equipment, you'd expect that TP-Link would be one of those feeling the smart home and IoT market with products bearing its name. For a while, that indeed seemed to be the case and TP-Link was grooming its Kasa series to be a collection of smart home products starting off with a smart plug. But with two cancellations, it seems that the company may be re-evaluating its overall strategy in that already congested market.

HP OMEN gear for Fall diversifies gamer hardware aesthetic

HP OMEN gear for Fall diversifies gamer hardware aesthetic

The next generation of products from HP aimed at gamers uses both HP's brand power and their ability to release relatively large arrays of products all in a short period of time. While smaller gaming companies release a single sort of device, HP's able to release three, and where one company can manage to hold down a single product line, HP is large enough to go in several directions at once. Case in point: HP for business, students, the average working person, HP for hardcore gamers with OMEN and even more hardcore with OMEN X, and products like the HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop, which is sort of a bridge between worlds.

iOS 12.4 ironically opened the doors to jailbreaking

iOS 12.4 ironically opened the doors to jailbreaking

Jailbreaking iPhones have become less trendy in recent years, partly because Apple has provided many of the functionality and security that users have been asking for. The other reason is that each iOS release has made it more difficult to find exploits that would give hackers entry to jailbreak those mobile devices. It is then quite ironic that the latest update, in fact, does the exact opposite, allowing them to create the first public jailbreak release in quite a long time.

Nest Google Accounts are now available but users should hold off

Nest Google Accounts are now available but users should hold off

Google's acquisition of Nest in 2014 set off some red flags but, for a few years, the tech giant let the nascent smart home company be its own man. It eventually "reabsorbed" Nest after a turbulent market period and then "rebranded" Nest into Google Nest to become a home for all of Google's smart home products. Now Google has kicked off the process to transition Nest owners to become Google users but said owners should probably wait a while before making such a big step.

Razer Phone Android 9 update rolled out and paused over Game Booster bug

Razer has recently taken some flack over its half-hearted commitment to supporting its existing Android phones, especially its first Android phone. The company has seemingly finally heard those cries and has started rolling out Android 9 Pie for the Razer Phone 1. Unfortunately, despite the long wait, it seems that Razer may have still let a major bug through, forcing it to halt what should have been good news for the phone's owners.

Huawei Kirin 990 to catch up with rivals on its own

Huawei Kirin 990 to catch up with rivals on its own

One of Huawei's biggest challenges in light of the US blacklisting is its ability to stand on its own, even without US technologies. One of the key pieces is the silicon that drives its smartphones in the form of HiSilicon Kirin processors. Huawei has been advertising the capabilities of its latest Kirin chips, pitting them against the likes of Qualcomm's Snapdragons, but it might be only with the Kirin 990 that the company will finally catch up with one of the trends in the mobile market: 4K video recording.

CBD supplements may go to waste when taken without certain foods

CBD supplements may go to waste when taken without certain foods

Some substances are fat-soluble, meaning they must be consumed with a glass of milk or some other fat for proper absorption. Other compounds, however, must be taken on an empty stomach or with food/beverages that do not contain fat in order to be absorbed. According to a new study, cannabidiol (CBD) supplements fall into the first category, meaning you're probably wasting your money if you're consuming these products with food or drinks that don't contain dietary fat or on an empty stomach.
