Today’s Apple TV 4K leak is bonkers

Today’s Apple TV 4K leak is bonkers

A collection of pictures "leaked" over the past 24-48 hours in what was instantly called a next-gen Apple TV deluge. Whether this supposed 4K Apple TV is real is irrelevant - what is relevant is the crowd reaction. The idea of being given the opportunity to purchase something so massive from Apple seems to have some fans flipping and flopping just like a flounder - and it's been this way for a while.

Instagram makes sliding into DMs more graphic

Instagram makes sliding into DMs more graphic

Instagram's Direct messaging is getting an upgrade, with the ability to reply to posts with stickers or even split-screen selfies. The new feature is billed as a way to have "visual conversations" by the company, though without them taking place publicly. It should cut down on "what photo were you talking about?" confusion in chats, too.

Volvo turns the 2018 XC60 into a solar eclipse viewer

Volvo turns the 2018 XC60 into a solar eclipse viewer

At this point everyone knows that the solar eclipse is coming next week and ahead of that people have been trying to get their hands on eclipse glasses so they can look at the phenomenon without going blind. The catch is that a bunch of the eclipse glasses that came out of China were bogus and Amazon had to recall them. Volvo is doing its part to enable at least a handful of people to view the eclipse without having to wear glasses that look like they are from 3D movies of the '80s.

Essential Phone first-impressions

Essential Phone first-impressions

In a crowded smartphone world you need to do something seriously special if you want to stand out. Essential's mix is a combination of pure Android, high-end build quality even a Vertu fan would have to give credit, and an ambitious roadmap of modular accessories, multiple form-factors, and a new generation of AI. Today, though, with the Essential Phone in hand and most of the rest still somewhere on a nebulous roadmap, I can't help but wonder: would it be taken as seriously if it wasn't the handiwork of Andy "Father of Android" Rubin?

ZenFone 3 will eventually get Android O but you don’t have to wait

ASUS’ launch of the ZenFone 4 series just a week before Google is expected to launch Android 8.0 “O” has naturally brought questions of updates. While it is definitely expected that the ZenFone 4 will get Android O, the same can’t be said for last year’s ZenFone 3 line. In its press conference, ASUS assured fans that ZenFone 3 will not only be upgraded to Android O but will also get the its new ZenUI 4.0. There still, however, is the question of when. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for ASUS to get its act together. With a bit of daring, you can unlock your ZenFone bootloader and be on your way to installing custom ROMs, including future Android 8.0 ROMs.

Wii U Compustick mod puts Windows 10 inside a handheld

Wii U Compustick mod puts Windows 10 inside a handheld

While portable gaming devices have long been in existence, the Nintendo Switch sparked the imagination of many makers and modders. While some of those have resorted to replicating the experience using a Raspberry Pi as the base, modder Banjo Kazooie went down a road less trodden. What he did was to basically stuff an Intel Compute Stick inside the shell of a Wii U handheld to create a gaming PC you can take with you and play on almost anywhere.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 teaser shows almost no bezels

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 teaser shows almost no bezels

Xiaomi arguably started this whole bezel-less trend when it put out the Xiaomi Mi Mix last year, a smartphone that was meant to be more of a commercial concept design. Now, however, everybody (except Sony) seems to be jumping on that train. So what is Xiaomi to do? It could try to do one better. The Mi Mix 2, which could be announced in just two weeks, could break through the barriers with a phone that is perhaps only 1-2% bezels, as hinted by this teaser coming from the designer of the first Mi Mix himself.

Reddit to embed videos on any topic under the sun or beyond

Reddit to embed videos on any topic under the sun or beyond

It’s a tad difficult to define Reddit in a simple sentence. Internet veterans will compare it with electronic bulletin board systems (BBS) or the younger Internet forums. Others might classify Reddit as a news aggregation site. While many will simply call Reddit a big mess. Soon, however, the site might have a new name under its belt: video sharing site. Yes, the Internet’s most famous or infamous discussion forum will soon let you natively embed videos of cats, dogs, haircuts, planets, and anything above, below, and in between.

BlackBerry KEYone screen fix has indeed happened

BlackBerry KEYone screen fix has indeed happened

It’s almost hard to believe that the BlackBerry KEYone, so far the last BlackBerry phone to hit the US market, is just a little over two months old. On the one hand, that does mean it still has plenty of time to make up for some missed opportunities. On the other hand, it does mean that it took BlackBerry that long to correct some mistakes. Fortunately for BlackBerry fans and hopefuls, the company has indeed done so and the KEYone’s screen has indeed been “fixed”, as attested to by JerryRigEverything himself.
