This video shows the Galaxy Note 9 in all its very Blue glory, complete with yellow S Pen, and the body of a champion.

Canon Zoemini photo printer is smaller than your smartphone

Canon Zoemini photo printer is smaller than your smartphone

Everything old is new again. Despite the popularity of digital photos posted on social media, printed photos are still a thing. In fact, they’ve become an even bigger thing for a younger generation that didn’t grow up with traditional photos. This has caused an explosion of portable printers whose sole purpose is to print such photos, sometimes in old Polaroid style even, and the Canon Zoemini is easily the smallest of them yet.

Moto Z3 5G Moto Mod already looks ridiculous

When the first 4G LTE smartphones were released, we thought they were pretty gosh-darned cool. I'm thinking about the HTC Thunderbolt, for example - a smartphone that looked pretty OK for its day.

Opinion: France’s total ban on smartphones in schools is too extreme

A few days ago, French lawmakers passed legislation that was written to protect children from growing up like zombies enslaved to their smartphones and tablets. Such mobile devices will be banned in schools for children up to 15 years of age, both inside and outside classes. While it’s definitely easy to see this as a victory against the smartphone addiction that is plaguing society, it could actually end up doing more harm than good when these kids become ill-prepared to face the realities of modern life.

Galaxy Note 9 pre-pre-orders open before release date

Galaxy Note 9 pre-pre-orders open before release date

This afternoon Samsung began accepting reservations for the Galaxy Note 9 - before they announced the phone. We must imagine they've taken the opportunity afforded them by teasers for trailers for big-name movies and used it here to their advantage. Why wait until the smartphone is detailed to get people to line up to buy it? Why not have people pre-arrange to purchase a phone for which we've not yet revealed the release date?
