OnePlus 6T event date changed to steer clear of Apple

OnePlus 6T event date changed to steer clear of Apple

Yesterday, Apple announced that it will host a new product reveal event on October 30, likely for the iPad we saw no sign of during its iPhone reveal in September. While Apple hosting a follow up event where it talks about the iPad isn't really anything new, this year there's a bit of a problem, at least as far as consumers are concerned: That's also the day OnePlus plans to launch the OnePlus 6T with a reveal event of its own.

Apple Event and OnePlus 6T day: which will you watch?

Apple Event and OnePlus 6T day: which will you watch?

At the announcement of Apple's latest event it's become apparent that some scheduling conflicts are in order. The most extreme is that of the launch of the OnePlus 6T, a smartphone from Android phone company OnePlus, a company that doesn't usually have to deal with conflicts of this sort. To be fair, Apple's event won't exactly have competing products shown - it's more likely ready to roll with a new iPad and MacBook - but the conflict remains.

Screen Call is Android’s new most killer feature

Screen Call is Android’s new most killer feature

Starting with the launch of the Google Pixel 3, users will be given a feature called Screen Call. This is a feature exclusive to Android (for now), and exclusive to Google products (for the time being.) It'll be launched on Google Pixel 3, then it'll be distributed to other Pixel devices "next month."

Google Pixel Slate official: Price, release date, details

Google Pixel Slate official: Price, release date, details

The Google Pixel Slate is one giant tablet made to traverse the boundaries between desktop and mobile. This device is sold as a tablet, on it's own, but much like some of the most obvious competition (the iPad Pro, for example), it'll make the most sense with its sold-separately keyboard accessory. This device runs Chrome OS, and because the newest versions of Chrome run Android apps (and have for some time now), you'll find a whole lot of Android going on, too.

Why I used this DSLR for the Microsoft event, not a smartphone

Why I used this DSLR for the Microsoft event, not a smartphone

I traveled to New York this week to cover the Microsoft Surface event. Over the past couple of years, tech journalists turned to smartphones to capture the news, from all perspectives and in all situations. I'm guilty of using a smartphone for major event coverage - there's nothing really wrong with doing it. Especially when devices like the Galaxy Note 9 provide such top-notch photo and video options. But for this event I wanted to remind myself what it was like to use a real big, professional camera. For this event I used a Canon EOS-1D X Mark II and Canon provided a couple of lenses to make the most of my situation from my most likely vantage point.

Pixel 3 and our desperate need to be surprised and delighted

Pixel 3 and our desperate need to be surprised and delighted

Today we're talking about a conspiracy theory that says Google released fake Pixel 3 XL units into the wild just to throw leakers off the scent of their true device design. If this is true, it's awesome. It's fun, and it creates the potential for some big surprise on behalf of Google. It's as if we want Google to reveal a surprise device more than an already-leaked high quality product.

Pixel 3 event official: Made by Google

Pixel 3 event official: Made by Google

The Pixel 3 event is officially set for October, and we're headed to New York to bring you the business. At said event we can expect the Pixel 3 as well as the Pixel 3 XL, both devices that've likely taken what's been delivered in the last couple of years to a new level. We'll also likely see some form of Google Home device or another, and maybe even something along the lines of Chrome OS Chromebook, or something like that.

Apple September 12 event: What to expect

Apple September 12 event: What to expect

Everything we expect from the Apple event set to take place on September 12th, 2018 is here. We're looking at a whole new set of iPhones, living in that iPhone X notch universe, all with Face ID and no less than a top-notch budget option for the masses. We're rolling in on a new Apple Watch and a new iPad Pro at some point soon, too, but those might not come quite as soon as this event.

The Fortnite event you’re missing right now

The Fortnite event you’re missing right now

This week at the gaming convention Gamescom there's an Epic Games booth mostly devoted to Fortnite. At this booth there's a massive mob of Fortnite fans, and they're not going anywhere any time soon. If you live in Germany, anywhere near Cologne, you might want to consider taking turn on over - if you can get in, that is to say. Imagine if this booth were your basement gaming den - just THINK about it.
