Rocketbook Fusion Review: adding structure to the hybrid notebook

The launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 may have sparked questions on the long-term viability of the product line. The Galaxy Note is largely defined by its S Pen stylus, which may have already peaked at this point. Some, however, are not completely sold on that particular use case and would prefer the more traditional pen and paper method.

For years, the folks over at Rocketbook have been offering a rather unorthodox way to bridge the digital and analog worlds together and with the latest Rocketbook Fusion notebook, it is attempting to appeal to one of the most passionate users of paper notebooks around: organizers and planners.

Karl Lagerfeld dead at 85, here’s the short list of his rudest quotes

Karl Lagerfeld died this week at age 85 as a master of fashion, creative director, and most importantly artist (and human work of art). Before we go too far into this article, I need to make clear the word "rude" here isn't meant as a negative. It's meant in the sense that Lagerfeld had a way with words, one that was at once startling, sharp, and smart. And it all comes down to sweatpants.

Adobe Creative Cloud users getting ‘color fonts’ free in February

This month the folks at Adobe made a push to bring love to users for Valentine's Day in the form of color fonts. Color fonts are a strange new beast, the likes of which only began to make sense here in this computer-first generation, one in which the letterpress techniques of the past have gone the way of the dodo. They're extinct, and the world is crumbling as a result.

Trust in tech is at its lowest: what needs to be done

The tech market is no stranger to controversy, scandal, and criticism. From the IBM days to the recent US elections, the industry has been rocked by one scandal or another. Recently, however, there has been non-stop news on this or that problem with a company, this or that terrible bug, or this or that lawsuit.

Over the years, these have all been chipping away at the trust and confidence that tech companies have built. With all that’s happening around us, it’s only natural to wonder who we can trust and, more importantly, what has to be done to keep our technology-centric world from collapsing under the weight of all these problems.

Why Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram cross-service encryption can’t happen

Why Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram cross-service encryption can’t happen

The proof is in the pudding when it comes to suggested end-to-end encryption of a single messaging system between Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. Today a statement from Facebook suggests that they're "working on making more of our messaging products end-to-end encrypted and considering ways to make it easier to reach friends and family across networks." But it's not that sentence that's important - it's the one that comes right after it that tells me what I suspect is probably true.

When will Bitcoin rise again?

When will Bitcoin rise again?

Analysts weighed in this week on signals for the return of Bitcoin to cash money prominence. While it would appear that Bitcoin reached its floor at around $3,500 USD, there's a whole lot of doubt in the market after the most major drop in the history of cryptocurrency - the fall of January 2018. Volume appeared en masse at the drop from $6k to $3k, but not in a way that necessarily suggested Bitcoin-specific accumulation was about to appear out of thin air.
