Pixel 4a camera samples have surfaced, and they look really good

The 12MP sensor appears to be rather capable.

What you need to know Camera samples from the Pixel 4a were shared on Twitter by a tech YouTuber in Cuba. The samples from the phone are compared to a Redmi Note 7. As we’ve been expecting, the images look quite nice.

We’re expecting Google to unveil the Pixel 4a any day now, likely through a simple press release seeing as how Google I/O 2020 is no longer happening.  [Read More…]

We count bodies in The Mandalorian and tell you how they fell

When Mando lets the guns talk, we listen. Here’s every time someone dies.

Yes, this a list of every kill in The Mandolorian, but first we created some ground rules. Victims who are punched or shocked are not confirmed kills. If someone gets shot and doesn’t get back up, we assume they were killed, since the only shots we see that don’t kill when they hit are blocked by beskar steel. Some offscreen kills are implied, so  [Read More…]

Webcams and PlayStation 4s, will they work together?

Best answer: No. Sony’s PlayStation 4 does not provide support for standard USB webcams. In fact, the company requires that you use its proprietary camera, which uses a different jack than USB.

The only PS4 camera: PlayStation Camera ($ 41 at Amazon) A professional option: Elgato HD60 S ($ 135 at Amazon) Cameras and PlayStation

Rather than adding support for third-party USB cameras, Sony has been trying to make its camera a must-have accessory since they first  [Read More…]

ANC helps the Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds sound better than they are

I wouldn’t say reviewing phones is easy, but there’s a sameness to it. You unbox it, put your SIM it in, set it up, and start using it like the phone before it. You do some tests — call quality, photos, maybe a drop test if you’re feeling bold — and you write about the experience. People read the review, one of likely many, and come to the conclusion that it’s either for them or it isn’t. Rinse,  [Read More…]

In that time, I’ve become a bit of a gearhead (okay, maybe more than a bit), and I’m always looking to find the most efficient and portable gear possible — especially since I do a ton of traveling for work, and sometimes it’s nice to be able to bring some way of creating or practicing music with me. Here are some of the  [Read More…]

U.S. companies can now work with Huawei again — except when they can’t

Licenses will be approved “where there is no threat to national security.” Commerce secretary Wilbur Ross has said the department will continue to protect America’s advanced technologies and no company should trade secrets or IP for access to growing markets.  [Read More…]
