OPPO AR Glasses Hands-on: OPPO’s future vision

At OPPO's INNO DAY conference, it revealed its grand vision for growing its business beyond smartphones and, as expected, 5G was one of the core focus of its expansion. This was also unsurprisingly tied to the technologies it enabled and improved, like augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and IoT. What was completely unexpected, however, was that OPPO had been silently working on its own AR glasses for that very purpose. We were able to spend some time with the device to try it out get an early peek at OPPO's vision of its future.

Pokemon Sword and Shield review: Same as it ever was

Pokemon Sword and Shield review: Same as it ever was

At this point, I think it’s safe to say that Pokemon Sword and Shield are the most controversial Pokemon releases we’ve ever seen. Game Freak’s announcement that Sword and Shield wouldn’t feature a full national Pokedex was the straw that broke the camel’s back for a lot of people, and after that, we saw a wave of criticism coming from longtime Pokemon fans online. By the time these games launched, taking a look at fan communities online would have someone who was out of the loop to believe that no one was buying these games.

After trying T-Mobile’s new 5G and OnePlus’ 7T Pro 5G McLaren I’m excited and frustrated

After trying T-Mobile’s new 5G and OnePlus’ 7T Pro 5G McLaren I’m excited and frustrated

I've been testing out T-Mobile's new 600MHz 5G network on the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren, and if you thought 5G was confusing now, get ready for a whole other level of head-scratching. 600MHz - aka low-band - 5G has a huge advantage in that deployment is relatively straightforward, but as my experience this week with both phone and network has found, not all 5G is created equal.

Can you trust Amazon? Take knockoff Apple Watches for example

Can you trust Amazon? Take knockoff Apple Watches for example

A collection of cheap imitations of the original Apple Watch are currently posing on Amazon as a perfect alternative to the far more expensive alternative. Brands like YAMAY, Willful, Letsfit, SKYGRAND, and ANBES make little effort to hide the fact that they're not only using lookalike UI - in some cases, they're literally selling the same devices under different brand names. Scratch that - in quite a few cases... in a CONCERNING number of cases, companies appear to be selling the same product with different brand names for different prices.

Google, Alphabet founders step down, Pichai now CEO of both companies

Before today, Larry Page and Sergey Brin were CEO and President of Alphabet - now that job goes to the CEO of Google. There will be no President role for Alphabet (for the moment, at least), and Pichai will be CEO of both Google and Alphabet. As Page and Brin said in a letter today, "While it has been a tremendous privilege to be deeply involved in the day-to-day management of the company for so long, we believe it’s time to assume the role of proud parents - offering advice and love, but not daily nagging!"

For Infiniti’s 30th anniversary, the gift is electrification

For Infiniti’s 30th anniversary, the gift is electrification

The Infiniti brand was formed with a singular mission: to create an automobile that one would want to take on an endless drive. Now, the automaker is facing its biggest change in its thirty-year history, a wholehearted embrace of electrification. While parent company Nissan is at the helm, the heritage of past, present, and future Infiniti vehicles can be traced directly to the Prince Motor Company, acquired by Nissan in 1966, and particularly the Prince Skyline Sport with a familiar double-arch grille and crescent cut rear window. They're styling elements that are still present in the modern-day Infiniti. What's under the hood, though, will be very different.
