Porsche to give Apple Music its in-vehicle debut

The idea of accessing streaming music from a car's dashboard is nothing new but Apple Music, now Spotify's biggest rival, still isn't a common sight there.

Microsoft SMS Organizer offers text message sanity to more countries

While it may seem that most of the world has moved away from SMS and towards instant messaging, the fact is that the world still revolves around good old simple and insecure text messages. It may still be limited in length compared to email but, just like email, the volume of text messages one can receive in a day can be quite harrowing for some people. That's why Microsoft introduced the SMS Organizer app to bring the same features email apps and services provide to keep those text messages from overwhelming users.

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

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.
