Here’s the cool stuff I’m going to do once I lose all this weight

Or, how I’m using my passions to fuel my journey.

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been sharing with you my plan to lose as much weight as I can. I first shared what I’d be doing physically, and then I discussed my diet plans. The cool thing about my plan is that it focuses on using tech to enrich my experience.

Our guide for how to disable Bixby on your phone, which nominally targets more casual Galaxy owners, is incredibly popular. If you look at these signals, it leads to a general feeling that Samsung is  [Read More…]

This year, CES is going to get weird

I, like many of my peers, have a love-hate relationship with CES. I’ll spare you the diatribe about overcrowding, or traffic, or the garish lights and artificial air of the Las Vegas strip — if you’ve been there, you either love it or hate it.

But in years past, whether I was reporting more broadly for MobileSyrup or focused on Android for AC, there seemed to be a particular trend or movement — mobile, VR, AR, wearables, smart  [Read More…]

TCL missed the boat with Palm by going small instead of big

Something happened recently that was just kind of sad for a longtime fan of mobile technology. A new Palm phone came out. And it looks like a joke. Maybe it’s the phone you’ve been waiting for, but I highly doubt it. The new Palm phone is a tiny 3.3-inch “companion” phone that doesn’t even work without another active phone on Verizon.

What Should It Have Been?

I think with a revival of Palm you should have gone back to the  [Read More…]

I switched from the S9 to the OnePlus 6 and I’m not going back

Turns out it kind of is a flagship killer after all.

As a reviewer, part of my job is switching phones on a semi-regular basis, but up until recently, I’ve always come back to the Galaxy S9 when I’m done. It’s the perfect size for me, the hardware is stunningly gorgeous and well-crafted, and I just can’t get over how good the camera is, especially in low light.

But while Samsung’s software these days is leagues better  [Read More…]
