Smartphones have really changed the way I fly

It’s pretty amazing when you think about it.

I may not fly as much as some of my colleagues — in fact, I don’t even have status with my preferred airline yet — but I still travel quite a bit. I just got back yesterday from a week in Anaheim for the NAMM Show, and before I even have time to fully unpack, I’m heading down to Florida for Mobile Nations’ company gathering tomorrow.

Well, as we know, Apple’s been experiencing some struggles of its own in recent months, warning of an multi-billion-dollar revenue shortfall due to slowing iPhone sales. Samsung is Apple’s biggest provider of memory chips, and thanks to  [Read More…]

Gemini Rue review: a game that really knows how to weave a story

Your home assistant isn’t spying on you unless you tell it to.

Voice-activated home assistants like Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Assistant are some of the most exciting “new” tech to appear in a very long time. It’s not what they can do, but how they do it that makes them so very different than anything that came before them. Saying “Hey Google do that thing” is reminiscent of 1980’s sci-fi where people talked to their home and  [Read More…]
