This is the Google Clips, a camera that uses AI to take photos

Google has introduced its Clips camera, a standalone device for recording interesting moments.

Aside from launching its new speaker, laptop, earbuds and of course smartphones, Google had one more thing to show the audience at the end of the day: the Google Clips.

Take your tunes to the gym (wirelessly) for $37

Working out is always better with music, and it’s always better when it’s your own music and not whatever garbage station the gym is pumping over the loudspeaker.

Take it from a Note 8 user: temper your iPhone X Face ID expectations

Sometimes it turns out the solution to a problem is something you already have: a fingerprint sensor.

Alongside the predictably named and designed iPhone 8, Apple just announced the all-new iPhone X (pronounced “ten” by the way). With its very familiar “lots of screen and tiny bezels” design, the iPhone X ditched one of the most recognizable parts of an iPhone: its home button. And in doing so, it lost Touch ID — one of the key  [Read More…]

Whatever your reason for wanting music in the shower, you need a speaker in your bathroom. Cords probably aren’t the best idea (you know — death by electrocution), so you’ll want a convenient Bluetooth speaker that lets  [Read More…]
