Your kid was probably raised with smartphones and/or tablets and is used to touching the screen to interact with it.

Grab an unlocked phone instead One issue with getting a specific T-Mobile phone deal is that you probably need to commit to 24 months of service to get the full discount.

“Designed in California, Assembled in China” is what’s written on every box of the iPhone. Have you wondered where do the internal parts of the iPhone come from? A teardown of the new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro done by Nikkei has revealed where do the internal components come from. The report reveals that South Korea provides 26.8% of the components that are found in the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. This is primarily because the display used in both iPhones are provided by Samsung Display and LG display — two South Korean giants. The memory chips found in the new iPhones are also provided by Samsung. The cameras found in the iPhone 12 series use sensors provided by Sony. Japanese components constitute around 13.6% of the parts found in the iPhone 12, as per Nikkei, that did the teardown in association with Fomalhaut Techno Solutions. “For noise control and circuit protection, many passive components, including some as small as the tip of a ballpoint … [Read more...] about iPhone 12: ‘made’ in Korea, Japan, US and others
The second-gen Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds aren't cheap at $300, but they're better all around than the originals, with a smaller, more comfortable design, active noise cancellation that rivals that of the AirPods Pro, improved battery life (up to 7 hours versus the original's 4) and better noise reduction during calls.

That makes them arguably the best true wireless earbuds on the market today and earns them a CNET Editors' Choice Award. … [Read more...] about The best headphone gifts for the 2020 holidays
