Latest Google Pixel Phone Leak Had Me Drooling Over The White Version

When it comes to mobile phone color, I usually would abstain from white. Not because it is easily dirtied, but because with a white device, more often than not, it will be paired with a white front which, IMHO, upsets the color balance since the display is black when not turned on. However, I might just change my stance if this is what a white Google Pixel 2 will look like. In the latest leak posted by Droid Life, the purported white Google Pixel 2 features a white majority back matched to a black glass section and surprisingly, it comes with a dash of orange… on the power button.

FOMOcamera: Life-logging Has Never Been This Discreet And Customizable!

The life-logging camera fad is over. It didn’t last long, did it? But why? My best guess is, having a camera stuck on you isn’t half as fun, plus it probably make folks you come across uncomfortable knowing that you may be filming them. The solution? FOMOcamera. Billed as the most wearable and customizable camera, FOMOcamera is basically a badge camera. In other words, it is a camera incognito as a badge in whatever design you fancy. Perfect for ladies for capturing men in the act of leering at their breasts instead of their eyes when conversing with them. Damn. I’d better stay away from ladies wearing a badge like this for I may be caught in the act. Sorry, can’t help it. Most men are hardwired to detect beauty and I am not going to pretend I am an exception. Continue reading FOMOcamera: Life-logging Has Never Been This Discreet And Customizable!

In this society where everything moves at breakneck speed, it only makes sense that picking a date (and potential life-long partner) should be efficient and it is perhaps this very reason, dating apps like Tinder exists.

This Keyboard Does What Microsoft Natural Keyboard Failed To Do

Keyboard was invented decades ago but the birth of computers did not invented keyboard; the keyboard design was essentially a carryover from the typewriter keyboard which was invented nearly 150 years ago. From then until today, not a lot has changed with a few attempt to alter the ergonomic, albeit not quite successfully. Case-in-point: Microsoft Natural keyboard. It didn’t go down well with a lot of users; it was big, clunky piece of hardware that, despite the ergonomic layout, forces your fingers to stretch to access some keys.

In China, There Are Face Masks That Will Prevent Others From Unlocking Your iPhone X When You Sleep

While futuristic, the biggest security concern of the newly announced iPhone X would be the face recognition technology. Apple claimed that the face recognition technology employed on the anniversary iPhone is ‘robust’, but when questioned about the ‘what if’ scenario whereby a user is hypothetically being force by a perpetrator to unlock it, Apple’s SVP, Craig Federighi, said that there is a couple of ways to prevent. One such method would be “gripping the buttons on both sides of the phone” (essentially squeezing it) which will temporarily disable Face ID.

The Display Tech Behind RED Hydrogen One Holographic Phone Revealed!

I love Star Wars as much as I love The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy because, the sci-fi movie franchise is loaded with many future tech that are still a dream to us mortals. As far as Star Wars is concerned, one of the tech that captures our imagination most would be holographic technology, particularly when it can be touched like the Dejarik, a chess-like holographic game famously played C-3PO and Chewbacca on Solo’s Millennium Falcon. Love is one thing, but I reserve the right to be skeptical about if it will actually realize in my lifetime. Continue reading The Display Tech Behind RED Hydrogen One Holographic Phone Revealed!

Samsung Plans To Release Galaxy Note Device With Bendable Display In 2018

The rivalry between Apple and Samsung could be more ferocious than some might have imagined. Case in point: just before the official announcement of Apple’s anniversary iPhone, the iPhone X and the next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 8, Samsung made an official statement in South Korea of its intention to continue pursuing foldable display smartphones. Until now, foldable display device is to smartphone like flying cars to personal transportation. There are talks about it and even concept made, but never realized.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Is ‘Edgeless’, Smaller But Packs Higher Resolution

China’s prolific handset maker (or maker of all things sellable, really) may not be the first to tout bezel-less display, but it was among the first to recognize the potential and hopped onto the bandwagon fairly swiftly with the Mi Mix introduced last year. Nearly a year on, a second iteration was born and like the first, the Mi Mix 2 is beautiful, lent to it by an incredibly expansive display and a unibody ceramic construction. It is again, a product touched by contemporary design maestro, Philippe Starck. Xiaomi may have started out imitating others, but along the way, the company has matured, developing its own vision in the area of innovations.
