iPhone 5G mmWave 1 and 2: Why you needn’t wait

Today we're looking at a few factors involved in the launch of the first and second generation 5G-enabled iPhones for 2020 and 2021. Apple's not officially stated that they'll absolutely release iPhones in 2020 and/or 2021 with different sorts of 5G, but we've got enough must-do and common sense information now to make some assessments. We begin with a little information about the two major sorts of 5G in the USA (and coming in the near future).

Pokemon GO with 5G clues points to enhanced legendary event

Pokemon GO with 5G clues points to enhanced legendary event

Puzzle pieces dropped by Niantic, 5G data carriers, and Qualcomm over the past couple of years point to a near-inevitable epic event. Given the products and services we've seen confirmed by the various companies involved, it would appear that Niantic is working on making a legendary event a reality. That event includes Pokemon GO gameplay in augmented and/or mixed reality and a potential inclusion of brand new hardware, enabling and surpassing the mythical event shown in one of the very first official videos made for the game Pokemon GO.

Super Mario Party is one of Switch’s biggest missed opportunities

Super Mario Party is one of Switch’s biggest missed opportunities

A little over a year ago, Nintendo released Super Mario Party for the Switch. Like many of Nintendo’s franchises, Mario Party is one that’s been running for decades, so bringing the franchise to the Switch was a no-brainer. After a few years of experimentation with the Mario Party series that - in my opinion at least - mostly missed the mark, Super Mario Party was something of a return to form. As someone who has been playing since the very first game in the series, that was an exciting thing to see.

There is no “simple trick” to privacy

There is no “simple trick” to privacy

As 2019 draws to a close, if the past twelve months - indeed, the past decade - have taught us anything, it's that you can't take privacy for granted. While there have been plenty of high-profile hacks, leaks, and data exposed through general mismanagement by companies large and small, the reality is that much of the time our personal information gets distributed not because it's stolen, but because we don't take sufficient care with it.

The future of Star Wars is TV, not movies

The future of Star Wars is TV, not movies

The Star Wars sequels, particularly The Last Jedi, have been divisive films, and now that the trilogy is complete, there are a number of people who are left feeling like LucasFilm and Disney didn’t have a coherent vision for the sequel trilogy before they set out to make it.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB First Drive Review: 3-row SUV is compact not compromised

Even before the arrival of Mercedes-Benz’s all-new compact 2020 GLB SUV, the German automaker has a full eight sport utility vehicles for the US market. The GLB takes it to nine SUVs in total, which is more than what I was expecting before I double-checked to compensate for my aging memory. That's a whole lot of options if you want a luxury truck, and a very broad range when it comes to size and abilities: the GLB happens to be the seventh car to utilize Mercedes’ new compact car platform, the same architecture as found under the A-Class and CLA coupe.
