FLIR has been dipping its toes in mobile over the last few years with products like the FLIR One and Cat S60 smartphone. The FLIR One that came out a couple years ago added thermal vision to (almost) any smartphone, but it was microUSB. Not all phones had the port facing the "right" way, but now the company is fixing that and getting with the times. The third-gen FLIR One is official, and it has a USB Type-C port. Read More
In a shocking turn of events, Asus has officially released the Chromebook Flip C302CA. An all-aluminum entry into the ever-growing world of Chromebooks, the newest Flip will come in a few different configurations depending on needs and budget. This little beauty has been leaked a few times and even went up for sale just a bit early, but now it is officially official. Read More
When a new year begins, sometimes you just want to forget the mistakes of yesteryear. After the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, some of us thought that Samsung would, or should, ditch the Note brand to avoid any future distrust in the consumer market. Well, it would appear that the electronics giant is not going to do that. Read More
LeEco is determined to succeed in the North American market, despite a strange launch event and mediocre devices. The company has announced two new smart bikes, the aptly-named LeEco Smart Road Bike and LeEco Smart Mountain Bike (not LeBike?), which can be seen on the CES show floor. Read More
New TVs are a classic tradition at CES. A lot of the big and small brands take the time to announce new sets with some feature they hope will entice consumers to buy one. So how does a 4K TV with Amazon's Fire TV built in sound? If that interests you then Seiki, Westinghouse, and Element have you covered. Read More
Although Android Wear 2.0 has been put off until "early 2017," ASUS isn't waiting for the update to deliver its own improvements and fixes. The company has released OTA updates for the ZenWatch 2 and ZenWatch 3, with some exciting new features (well, for ZW3 owners). Read More
Are you a "cost-conscious yet uncompromising Internet-minded millennial?" If so, this is your lucky day, because Huawei's Honor sub-brand says it knows how you think. It understands the "double or nothing motto that millennials live and breathe." Finally, someone gets it! These are all things Honor has said in its PR today as it announced the global launch of the Honor 6X. It only costs $249, and I assume you can buy it even if you're not a "young and bold consumer." I myself am old and cautious. Read More
Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 835 way back in November last year, but today the company is lifting the lid on a considerable number of details it declined to publish as part of that initial reveal. Qualcomm hadn't even bothered to state how many cores the 835 had yet, so aside from the comment that it was the world's first 10nm CPU, there was precious little to go on.
We now know the 835 has returned to an octa-core setup, as opposed to the quad-core Snapdragon 820. We also know that the actual CPU cores are not of Qualcomm's own design, but more closely based upon ARM reference cores (the 820 used Qualcomm's full-custom Kryo cores). Read More
A new year means a new Telegram update. Version 3.16 adds in deleting recently sent messaging for everyone, network usage information, t.me short links, and a host of small, but significant, improvements to the Android app.
The big addition is the ability to delete recently sent messages, stopping everyone from seeing them. Telegram's blog entry on v3.16 says this is available up to 48 hours after the message has been sent, so any drunk tweets can be got rid of once you've sobered up a bit. It's not clear, however, if this still works if the recipient(s) has seen the messages. Read More
