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.

iPad Pro 2018 (or 2019) leak looks like HP TouchPad

Remember that time when HP sold Palm and had a fire sale on a very rounded-corner tablet by the name of TouchPad? It's almost as if the designers of this rumored iPad Pro 2018 saw the outside edge of that old tablet and decided it'd be good for the inside of their newest slate. What we're looking at today is a set of images of what's likely our first look at the iPad Pro 12.9 for the year 2018... or 2019.

Phonak Audéo Marvel hearing aid: binaural audio for Android, iOS

Phonak Audéo Marvel hearing aid: binaural audio for Android, iOS

A lot of the advancements in smartphone technology, from multiple cameras to high-end audio output, have been made with the physically capable masses in mind.

Worse, some even lock users into a specific platform or device, either by intention or by accident, leaving those with handicaps even more, well, handicapped. Hearing aid maker has had enough, waiting for platform and device makers to get their acts together. With the new Marvel line of hearing aids and its first member, the Audéo M, it is taking matters into its own hands to deliver "love at first sound", no matter what smartphone you're using.

Adobe Premiere Rush video editor rolls out, Android to follow

Forget 160 characters. GIFs and videos are the new thing in social media and the Interwebs. Creating those, however, aren't exactly easy unless you've got a knack for video editing.

Revealed as Project Rush a few months back, this new member of Adobe's suite practically puts an "all-in-one" video editor in the cloud, ready to export your latest masterpieces to YouTube, Facebook, and more.

Samsung Galaxy Phoenix looks ready to battle iPhone XR

Samsung Galaxy Phoenix looks ready to battle iPhone XR

Could Samsung respond to the upcoming least-expensive iPhone X with a phone that's just as impressive? If what we're seeing in the leaked Galaxy A6s is legit (and headed worldwide), Apple might have a real competitor on its hands. Not that Apple is ever competing with Samsung, but in the most basic sense, this looks like a lineup of phones that has iPhone XR written all over it.

SuperScreen Kickstarter fails, takes $2.5M down the drain

SuperScreen Kickstarter fails, takes $2.5M down the drain

Crowdfunding projects work - sometimes. Transcendent Designs' SuperScreen is not an example of a successful crowdfunding project. The group collected pledges of over $2.5-MILLION USD and 1.5 years after the end of the campaign, it's gone. No delivery of a final product was made, and no refunds will be made (according to the campaign's creator.) Let this be a good reminder: Giving money to companies for products that do not exist is a bad idea.

Robot Unicorn aims to bring girls to STEM research

There's a robot out there in the wild made by UBTECH that's aiming to ramp up female interest in STEM research. While the idea is questionable that the color purple and a fanciful unicorn form will entice girls any more than any other sort of robot, the robot itself remains pretty neat. The full product name is "JIMU Robot Mythical Series: UnicornBot Kit" and it's basically just hit stores this morning.

Luna Display turns an iPad into a second monitor for Macs

Luna Display turns an iPad into a second monitor for Macs

Multi-monitor setups are so common these days that even notebooks that are normally meant to have only one screen are being used with external monitors. Those external monitors, however, are often expensive, bulky, and stationary. There are, of course, portable monitors which are just as expensive. If, however, you own a MacBook and happen to also have an iPad, you're in luck, because Luna Display can wirelessly join those two screens together to give you a bigger but still portable digital workspace.
