Sorry, the headphone jack isn’t coming back

And it’s going to be okay. Really.

Throughout the process of writing the Galaxy Note 10+ review, from our initial first impressions updates to publishing my final definitive version, it was extremely interesting to see just how little outcry there was regarding the loss of the 3.5 mm headphone jack. Be it in the article comments, in our forums, or on Twitter, people had plenty to say about everything … except the physical audio interface.

Vizio P Series Quantum review — an incredible TV if money isn’t an object

Vizio’s best has a lot going for it, even if it’s still second to a true OLED TV.

I love Vizio’s range of sound bars, but for years I disregarded the company’s TVs in favor of an LG OLED TV. I’ve used OLED TVs since I moved to the US a few years ago, and even the best from Samsung and Sony have failed to displace my trusty OLED.

At CES way back in January of this  [Read More…]

Amazon isn’t slowing down the deal train on day 2 of Prime Day

Prime Day 2019 has been in full swing for over 24 hours already, but we are only half way through the madness. Amazon’s two-day event was said to be loaded with millions of deals, and so far we’ve found that to be true, but now the company is saying that ‘some of the best deals are still to come’. With new deals being released as frequently as every five minutes, it’s hard to believe that there could be more, and  [Read More…]

A future revision will allow the use of electronically marked USB-C cables, but right now they won’t provide power.

The Raspberry Pi 4 is better than its predecessor in every way. One of those ways is power through a standard USB-C connector to allow for the extra bit of juice the beefier board needs compared to its older brother. There is a slight problem, though — electronically-marked cables, like the one used with MacBooks and other new  [Read More…]

The Pixel 3a isn’t the rebirth of the Nexus line, but it’s close enough

‘Nexus’ is never coming back, but some of the line’s best features are alive and well in the Pixel 3a.

It’s been two and a half years since we broke the story that the Nexus brand was going away to be replaced with an entirely new brand and vision — what ended up becoming the Pixel. With it came an equally dramatic pricing change: Nexuses had slowly increased in price over the last few generations, but the  [Read More…]

Anki’s demise serves as a reminder that the cloud isn’t always the answer

I’ve never owned a “social robot,” and if Jibo and the Anki Vector are any sign of the state of these niche gadgets, I don’t expect that to change any time soon. Both were fairly simple robots that specialized more in companionship than sheer functionality, and both came to untimely ends; less than two months after Jibo Inc. shut its doors, Anki announced that it, too, was going out of business.

While that’s sad news on its own, it  [Read More…]
