Unlocked LG G6 drops to all time low of $499.99

The LG G6 has already seen its fair share of deals, despite only being on the market for a few weeks. However, so far most of those offers have come from carriers, at least in the US. But what if you want to grab a G6 for cheap(er), but don’t want anything to do with a carrier?

Well, today an eBay seller with 99.8% positive feedback has come to your rescue. It’s offering the unlocked LG G6 for only $499.99. That’s a cool $100 less than what you’d expect to pay for such a handset, but there are quite a few caveats.

First off, this isn’t the unlocked model meant for the US market….

Apple releases three new ads to convince you to switch to an iPhone

Exactly one week ago Apple launched a revamped ‘Switch’ page on its website. That’s the portal that’s meant for people looking to switch to an iPhone, as the name implies. And with the new page came a new ad campaign as well, which debuted on the same day. A few different ads were released then, and three more have been outed today.

These are all short, 15-second clips. Two of them (titled “smooth” and “security”, respectively) focus on features that Apple thinks its smartphones have that the competition doesn’t offer on the same level.

“Your iPhone just works”, Apple says with…

OnePlus 5 teaser campaign continues, this time with a camera sample

OnePlus is busy doing what OnePlus does best – drum up hype for its next smartphone. It’s already revealed the device’s name, so we know it’s going to be called OnePlus 5. It will sport the Snapdragon 835 chipset, and may possibly come in no less than four color versions.

And now it’s time for a camera sample, to keep the teaser campaign going. Here’s what the official OnePlus account tweeted earlier today:

Asus Zenfone AR launches in Taiwan mid-June, US in late June or early July

Earlier this month we found out that Verizon is going to be the one sole carrier selling the Asus Zenfone AR in the US when the phone finally becomes available. That revelation came from a Google employee, though, so we’ve been expecting a confirmation of some sort from Asus too. And we got that today, thanks to an Engadget report that resulted from an interview with Jerry Shen, the Taiwanese company’s CEO.

It turns out that the Zenfone AR is almost ready to launch, many months after its initial unveiling at CES. It will go on sale in Taiwan first, sometime around mid-June. Then you can…

Logitech POP: How a button changed the way I interact with my smart home

May 28, 2017
The HomeKit-enabled Logitech POP Smart Button puts smart home control at your fingertips.

I’ve been excited about Logitech’s HomeKit-enabled POP Smart Button since the company’s announcement back in April. See, Apple’s HomeKit has offered support for programmable buttons for awhile but the POP is the first one available for purchase. Why’s a button worth getting excited about? Here’s a little of what I wrote in the announcement post:

Put in physical terms, you hit the button and stuff happens in your house: You might have it set up to turn on all the lights in your kitchen, turn down the thermostat, or lock the front door — the possibilities are endless!

I’ve been itching to add a programmable button to my HomeKit home because of those endless possibilities. There’s something delightful about having a physical, dedicated button that can control my home. It’s sort of like a light switch with extra super powers.

Logitech sent me a HomeKit-enabled Logitech POP Smart Button…

Expand your leadership skills with Apple’s new JFK collection

May 28, 2017
Ask not what leadership can do for you. Ask what you can do with leadership.

To celebrate the occasion of the centennial of his birth, Apple is partnering with the JFK Library and the JFK Library Foundation to honor the legacy of President John F. Kennedy, his leadership, and his inspiration.

They’ve collected together, and in some instances digitized for the first time, a variety of resources for students, teachers, and anyone and everyone who wants to learn, discover, and experience the life and lessons of JFK.

There’s a new portal on Apple.com:

At Apple, we share the same vision of leadership through service, courage, innovation, and inclusion that guided John F. Kennedy’s presidency. Together with the JFK Library, we’ve curated a collection of learning materials and activities to help commemorate his centennial year and inspire the next generation of leaders.

Included on the page are links to speeches, books, libraries, and an international photo gallery.

There’s also…

More CAD images of the Apple iPhone 8 surface

May 28, 2017
With the end of May just days away, it could be just three months before the Apple iPhone 8 is introduced. Of course, the tenth-anniversary premium model could go by another name when Apple shows it off to the public. Other monikers bandied about include the Apple iPhone Edition, and the Apple iPhone X. The latter name would have the benefit of having a dual meaning. “X” could denote something different and premium, while also representing the number 10 in Roman numerals.

During the weekend, some more CAD (computer aided design) images of the Apple iPhone 8 were disseminated from the Twitter …

OnePlus reveals the first photo taken with the OnePlus 5

May 28, 2017
Not long after announcing that the upcoming OnePlus 5 will feature a main camera made in collaboration with DxO, OnePlus today revealed the very first (public) photo shot with said camera.

As you can see below, OnePlus posted two images on Twitter, asking fans to guess which of them was taken with the OnePlus 5. 

It only makes sense for the better looking image to be shot on the new phone – and that’s certainly photo no. 2. photo no. 1 (on the left) looks murky, while the image on the right is cleaner, with more vibrant colors and finer details. Unfortunately, high-res …
