These $30 truly wireless Bluetooth earbuds crush Apple’s Airpods

Let’s not beat around the bush: Apple makes the most popular truly wireless Bluetooth earbuds on the market today. Yes, it seems like half the people I know are walking around with Airpods in their ears. It’s part of the reason we made our guide on pairing the Airpods with Android devices. Just because Apple makes them doesn’t mean you can only use them with Apple products.

These don’t go on sale all that often.

Amazon is currently offering the popular wireless headphones from Apple for $ 144.99, which is about $ 15 off the normal going rate.

How does Apple’s new push for the education compare to Chromebooks in the classroom?

Apple’s new education offerings are clearly aimed at the Chromebook but are they enough?

Hooray competition!

Apple had its focus on education event in Chicago this week, and the company is getting serious about taking back one market it used to have under tight control: the classroom. Not too long ago, if you were to look at the computing products school systems were buying you would have seen an Apple logo on almost all of them. Apple  [Read More…]

Apple’s Grammy ads were all about Apple. Google’s was about the rest of us

The iPhone X has Animoji, if you didn’t know. … Google had stories of hope to tell instead.

I admit, I still have no idea what a Despacito is. I can’t tell if Khalid is a DJ or just a regular dude. The line blurs between SZA and Sia (though they both kick some serious ass) and Pink looked exceptionally blonde to me. (Those high notes, though.)

I’m a nearly 40-year-old white guy. The Grammys maybe aren’t for me  [Read More…]

Fact-checking Apple’s iPhone X event

Congrats on the event, Apple. Now lets talk a bit.

Android fans are no stranger to Apple events containing a jab or two at the competition, often lacking context to make things seem rosy and awesome for App fans. The September event for Apple is usually for the next iPhone, but this event had a lot of things to talk about from the comfort of the new Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park. For nearly two hours, Apple captivated  [Read More…]

Google’s Tango and Apple’s ARKit approach augmented reality from opposite sides

If you ask half the tech world right now, Apple is on the verge of inventing augmented reality.

While some degree of eye-rolling is appropriate, it is true that ARKit is going to accomplish something special by being available on such a large number of phones and tablets with nothing more than a software update. It’s the kind of thing that gets Android owners wondering why Google didn’t go this route, choosing instead to invest so heavily  [Read More…]

Apple’s AirPods may be the best Bluetooth earbuds for Android

Can you use the AirPods with an Android phone?

I picked up a pair of AirPods last week, and have been using them with my iPhone, Mac and other Apple devices. The experience is fantastic — seamless, even — and the sound isn’t half bad, either. When you first open the dental floss-like lid and place an iPhone nearby, the two gadgets talk to one another, and a little window pops up on the iPhone’s screen to  [Read More…]
