Moto’s Latest Phone Has a Genius Solution for Preventing Vertical Video Syndrome

Even though vertical videos are supported in platforms like YouTube and Instagram, watching them is still very annoying sometimes, and I’d prefer if these portrait-oriented clips never existed in the first place. Read More >>

Panasonic Hid a Security Camera Inside a Lamp That Will Stand Out Like a Sore Thumb

There’s certainly something to be said for cleverly hiding an object in plain sight, but Panasonic’s new incognito wireless security cameras are camouflaged inside a conspicuously tall floor lamp that doesn’t really look like a floor lamp, inevitably leading to visitors taking a closer inspection to figure out what it is, and discovering its secret.

I Turned My Flat Into a Surveillance State With These Petcube Cameras

All pet owners wonder what their furry little babies get up to while the humans are gone. That’s been especially true for me lately. While my partner’s sassy cat Pablo and my derpy, elderly Yorkshire Terrier Daisy mostly ignore each other, they do get into the occasional tiff. Recently, Daisy’s taken to hiding under the bed – a habit I noticed she picked up only when we leave for work and she’s left alone with Pablo for hours at a time. I couldn’t say for certain Pablo was bullying her, but that’s where the Petcube Bites 2 and Petcube Play 2 come in. Read More >>

Misfit’s New Vapor X Smartwatch Looks Very Promising

The first Misfit Vapor was nearly vaporware. Its successor, the Vapor 2, tried to fix the original smartwatch’s issues but was ultimately hindered by an outdated processor. Today, Misfit launched its third stab at a smartwatch with the Vapor X – and at least on paper, it looks like it could be a substantial improvement over its predecessor Read More >>

Snapchat Glasses, Except Now Way More Expensive

It seems Snap just can’t give up its obsession with techy camera glasses. That’s because after losing a shedload of money trying (and failing) to sell its first Spectacles, and later following up with a second model to little fanfare, today, Snap announced the Spectacles 3, which are somehow uglier than ever and come with a serious price tag.

The DJI Osmo Mobile 3 Might Be the Perfect Smartphone Gimbal

Between devices like the Osmo Mobile 2 and the Osmo Pocket, DJI doesn’t really have any competition when it comes to making portable gimbals. But that hasn’t stopped DJI from trying to make its gadgets even better with the new Osmo Mobile 3. Read More >>

If You Value Your Photos, Here’s a Good Reason to Turn Off Your Camera’s Wifi

By now, most people who spend any time online know the importance of ensuring their software is up to date, using an antivirus app, and avoiding the darker corners of the internet to avoid getting infected by malware that locks your files until a ransom is paid. But don’t assume it’s just your computer being targeted; your fancy digital camera and all your precious photos could be at risk as well. Read More >>

Doomed Throwable Camera Ball Now Wants Owners to Pay an Extra Fee Every Time They Use it

It’s been almost eight years since a younger version of myself first reported on the Panono: a camera covered ball that snaps 360-degree photos when tossed in the air. It’s been a bumpy ride for the Panono since then, and even a bumpier one for those who purchased and actually received their cameras as yesterday the company announced new fees for anyone actually wanting to use it.

The Acer Predator Triton 900 is Almost a Great Portable Battlestation

For a long time, big gaming notebooks were just that: thick, heavy, and more powerful versions of standard laptops, even laptops as ridiculous as the Acer Predator 21X from back in 2017. But more recently, gaming notebook makers have been experimenting with more far-out designs like what we’ve seen from the Asus ROG Mothership – which looks like what you’d get if a Microsoft Surface and a Star Destroyer had a baby – and now this: the Acer Predator Triton 900.

Samsung Should Have Just Led With the Galaxy Watch Active2

Earlier this spring, Samsung introduced its Galaxy Watch Active smartwatch. Gorgeous and streamlined, it would have been the perfect smartwatch if not for some buggy software. Less than six months later, Samsung’s already unveiled the Galaxy Watch Active2, which I got to see for myself at an event last week. It fixes a lot of the gripes I had with the original and adds some neat style and fitness features—but I can’t help but wonder why Samsung didn’t just lead with the Active2 in the first place.

We Tested Intel’s Ice Lake i7 CPU, and It Packs a Pleasant Surprise

Intel’s Ice Lake processors aren’t on the market just yet, but after five years of teasing and delays, Intel put the upcoming 10nm CPUs in the hands of journalists last week. The company claims this generation of processors will help redefine “what’s possible in a thin and light laptop”—specifically, we’re supposed to see significant improvements in battery life, thermal performance, and speed. We couldn’t test out those first two claims, but we got the opportunity to test the latter one, and while the speed bumps we recorded for processor-intensive tasks weren’t by any means shocking, the GPU improvements seem pretty extraordinary.
