It looks like Google killed the fingerprint sensor on the Pixel 4

The dawn of new tech means bidding farewell to old features.

In June, the company shared an official render of the phone months before its expected release. Then, on July 29, Google shared a teaser video confirming what’ll likely be the Pixel 4’s biggest selling point — Motion Sense.

Here’s what the ASUS Chromebook C434 looks like in every hinge position

The hinge on the ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 may look like your standard 2-in-1 hinge at first glance, but the way it bends back has raised a few eyebrows among new and prospective users. See, on most 2-in-1s, the laptop will sit flat until you fold the hinge flat or back towards Tent mode, but on the C434, something different happens.

Running Android 9 Pie, the Blu G9 (READ OUR REVIEW OF THE G9 HERE) offers up a large screen, generous battery life, and an unexpected design language. That is, rather, that it seems to punch above its weight class.

Maybe it’s the compact size, or the ease of use. Or how you can mount them to just about anything and get shots that are virtually impossible with other cameras.

No matter the specific appeal, I know that after watching MrMobile’s first impressions video of DJI’s  [Read More…]

Borderlands 3 looks to be exactly what fans have been waiting for

Pick up your weapons and get ready to fight.

Borderlands 3 should need little introduction at this point. Gearbox’s upcoming role-playing shooter is the latest in the acclaimed franchise and the first that will take us beyond Pandora’s planetary system. If my nearly three hours with the game was any indication, the more things change, the more they stay the same. That’s not a knock on it, though, as Gearbox has just doubled down on what made  [Read More…]
