Our wearables have gotten a lot smarter and more advanced.

Apple’s MacBook laptop design has been kept more or less the same for several years now, and while it is a nice design, it would be good to see Apple shake things up a bit. We have been hearing rumors that a redesign could be on its way, and now a new report from Bloomberg has revealed a potential “new” feature.
After initially denying that they would be selling off their smartphone business, it was later revealed that LG was indeed considering such a move. While there are no concrete plans yet, the company did state that this was something that they were looking into and that it was one of their options.
A lot of our mobile devices come with GPS these days. This isn’t so much that companies want to know where you are, but rather it is used for health and fitness related apps, navigation apps, and so on. The inclusion of GPS can also be a good thing, like in the case of a woman who was kidnapped but later rescued by police who used her Apple Watch to […]
For those following the world of smartphones, there’s a very good chance that you might have heard of OnePlus and OPPO. Both are phone companies from China, and it seems that both companies have also recently announced that their R&D divisions have merged. So don’t be surprised if moving forwards, we will start seeing more similar features across both brands.
Huawei is a brand that many of us are familiar with when it comes to smartphones, and to a certain extent, Honor as well who used to be under Huawei’s banner.

Virtual reality has a ton of uses, most of which are games because it does seem to be a very obvious candidate for that.

Injury to the spine often means that a person becomes paralyzed and might never walk again or regain control over their lower limbs.

When Apple brought Touch ID over to their Mac computers, many had rightfully figured that it was only a matter of time before Face ID was also introduced. After all, some of Apple’s Mac computers do come with built-in webcams, so why not fit the Face ID components under there as well, right?
We have been hearing rumors that Apple could be planning on redesigning its MacBook Pro, but what about the MacBook Air? Apart from changing up the bezels for the display, the laptop has still pretty much maintained the same design and form factor. That could change either later in the year or possibly 2022.
Back in the early days of the internet when dial-up was still very much a thing, the internet wasn’t as populated as it is today. People still did not necessarily know where they needed to go to find what they needed, and search engines were certainly not as robust or as smart as they are today.
About 6-7 years ago, Google launched a moonshot project called Project Loon. The idea was simple – use balloons and launch them into the sky and float them to remote places and provide those places with internet. It was a grand idea, but unfortunately it wasn’t exactly a profitable one.
Intel is typically associated with PCs. The company’s processors are almost always the default choice whether it comes to custom builds or premade computers.

If you hate the notch design on the iPhone, know that based on previous reports it has been suggested that the notch will not be going away anytime soon.

When Apple discontinued their Thunderbolt Display, many were wondering if this meant that the company could be planning a newer model.

The vast majority of laptops out there still use LCDs as their display of choice. There is a reason why, and that is because LCDs are cheaper to produce, especially at larger sizes. This isn’t to say that OLED laptops don’t exist, but LCD is still a much popular configuration. However, Samsung is hoping to change that, and then some.
