This review will focus on two models that will not make it to the US, but should be of interest to those in Taiwan, China, Japan, Korea, and elsewhere. The main focus will be on the ZenFone Selfie, which is much like the familiar ZenFone 2 and ZenFone 2 Laser but with a high-quality front-facing camera sensor. I will also discuss the ZE550KL model of the ZenFone 2 Laser, which is available in some non-US markets. Just as a disclaimer to start off, both of these phones are incredibly similar to the already-reviewed US version of the ZenFone 2 Laser. Check out that review for some more information and … [Read more...] about ASUS ZenFone Selfie And ZenFone 2 Laser International Edition Review: Great Values As Long As You Can Handle ZenUI

(Adam Glanzman for The Washington Post) SOMERVILLE, Mass. — Housed in a 19th-century meatpacking plant, Formlabs boasts all the accoutrements of American high-tech success: exposed brick walls and ductwork, a morale-boosting pool table and plenty of young employees hammering away at laptops. The maker of desktop 3-D printers, which can produce everything from dentures to Tesla car parts, is the kind of company that President Trump once said must be protected from … [Read more...] about Trump’s next round of trade limits could hurt the U.S. tech industry he wants to help
What do many TVs, batteries, computer monitors, and printer ink cartridges all have in common? They're made in China, of course. They could all also cost about a quarter more if the talked-up trade war between the US and China becomes reality. However, unpick what's happening, and why, and a Pandora's box opens that reveals just how much this is not only about trade, but about domination of future tech like AI, autonomous cars and 5G.The Trump administration doesn't think China properly protects intellectual property or sufficiently opens its markets to US companies. It also happens to have a massive trade deficit with China, with Americans importing vastly more goods from China than it exports. Which is why it proposes putting 25 percent tariffs on imports of TVs and over a thousand other product categories from China, ostensibly to help create a level playing field. Those tariffs equate to about US$150 billion in total. The trouble is, the cost could end up … [Read more...] about The US-China trade war: does this mean more expensive TVs and phones?

When it comes to 2015's premium mobile silicon, the situation is pretty clear-cut. In one corner of the ring, we have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. Designed in the USA, and fabricated in Taiwan, this eight-core monster will power all of this year's flagship smartphones, with the notable exception of one. The Samsung Galaxy S6 will mark the big global debut of Samsung's Exynos 7420 SoC - whose 14nm build and performance, as the benchmarks up to this point show, is keeping Qualcomm's executives up at night. This is the second time the US chip-maker's global dominance is being challenged, after Taiwan's MediaTek practically grabbed the Chinese market for itself with its low-cost solutions. However, with its state of the art 14nm manufacturing process and global LTE modem, Samsung is head and shoulders above everyone else, but Intel. And it isn't just the newer fabrication process - it appears Samsung made a very powerful processor as well! But is it so fast as to to put Qualcomm out … [Read more...] about Preliminary Snapdragon 810 vs Exynos 7420 benchmarks show Qualcomm made the faster SoC
