Fujifilm’s X-T3 is a great camera that’s hard to recommend

Posted:  October 18, 2018   By:    5 comments   

I’ve always had a soft spot for Fujifilm‘s X-series of digital cameras. Well, not so much the X-A, but definitely the X-T, X-H and X100. It’s that sexy combination of old-school good looks, excellent image quality and physical dials that give their cameras that X-factor, so to speak.

And today, I got to check out the latest entry into their line of X-T cameras. It’s called the X-T3 and I’m absolutely smitten.

This robot dances better than you do

Posted:  October 18, 2018   By:    4 comments   

When we think of robots, we think of the future, of how things will be better and easier when we have obedient, humanoid servants that will not need food, will not tire and will not say no to us. While we’re still some ways away from that future but…we’re getting there.

Having said that, robotics has come a very long way since the likes of Aibo and Asimo, and it has advanced tremendously in the past couple of years. Boston Dynamics has been at the forefront of robotics and have made a number of significant progress since it started developing autonomous robots.

honor’s new upcoming phone features a hidden slide-out camera

Posted:  October 18, 2018   By:    17 comments   

The first time we saw a phone with a hidden camera was when vivo released a concept device called the Apex. That concept then became the vivo NEX, which was the first full all-display device. The front part was all screen, no notch, no speaker grill. To make that possible vivo had to house the front-facing camera in a very unique way. It was hidden inside the top part of the phone and popped up automatically when you needed to use it. The first time we saw the hidden camera mechanism in action, it was the best thing ever.

The ASUS ROG Phone has one of the craziest retail boxes I’ve seen

Posted:  October 17, 2018   By:    4 comments   

While I’ve seen this phone multiple times over the year, I never got to see the final retail unit nor did I get to see the final retail box. And boy was I not prepared for it. I mean, I’ve seen some fancy boxes before — the original Mi MIX comes to mind — but the thing I loved about the ROG Phone one was just how much it oozed “gaming”, yet managed to not be incredibly garish at the same time.
