I — Tom Westrick — have been using these headphones as my daily use headphones for the past week, including in the gym and for hours in a crowded coffee shop. TaoTronics provided these headphones for review. Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) is one area where headphones continue to get better year after year. While traditionally found on big, over-ear headphones, ANC is starting to make its way into smaller headphones. TaoTronics is well known for making inexpensive but great products, and these headphones are no different. If you're a fan of earbuds, definitely consider these. Good ANC, better audio Price: $46Bottom Line: These are one of the cheapest ways to get noise cancellation, so if you like earbuds, check these out. The Good Lightweight 16-hour battery life with ANC disabled Magnets keep the earbuds together ANC works stupendously The Bad Micro-USB charging Only eight hours of battery life with ANC enabled TaoTronics Neckband Headphones with ANC What I like … [Read more...] about TaoTronics Neckband Headphones with ANC review: Good product in a competitive field
There's a new budget GPU in town, the 3GB version of the GeForce GTX 1050, and boy is this one a strange animal. Recently we checked out the disaster that is the DDR4 version of the GT 1030, a horribly misleading product that shouldn’t exist. We expect that to go down as one of the worst graphics card released in history. We don't expect this GTX 1050 3GB version to be nowhere near as bad, in fact it might not even be bad at all. However we bring up the GT 1030 to memory because it's an unnecessary odd release and a bit misleading. Prior to May 2018 there was only one version of the GTX 1050 (code-named GP107-300) and it came with a 2GB memory buffer. That's the same GPU we've seen on retail since October 2016 when we first tested it. However, on May Nvidia quietly updated the GTX 1050 page on their website to include a 3GB model that looked to slot-in between the existing 2GB 1050 and the 4GB 1050 Ti, though it’s a bit more complicated than that. The 3GB 1050 isn’t … [Read more...] about The New 3GB GeForce GTX 1050: Good Product or Misleading Product?
In about 24 hours, we will be getting our first glimpse of the next Google-branded smartphones — the Pixel and Pixel XL. The Nexus line that we've known for years now will be put to sleep as this new brand attempts to establish itself in the mainstream and grab a piece of the pie.So, what's the difference? In reality, the Pixel phones will still have flagship hardware, vanilla Android (as-Google-intended), and timely updates for at least 2 years after release. Well, in short, the Pixels are going to be more of a Google phone than the Nexus was. The search giant isn't using the #madebygoogle hashtag without having a point.The Nexus smartphones were the result of a collaboration between Google and a popular manufacturer. They usually carried a lot of the DNA of said manufacturer's smartphones — in some cases, you could say that the Nexus for a particular year looks like a spinoff of its creator flagship for the same period, only with vanilla Android and software support … [Read more...] about Poll: will you miss the good old Nexus?

Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5993; Member since: 22 Dec 2010) If iApple sent the 'cease and desist' letters out after the Appeals court stayed enforcement of the injunction, Sammy would be within their rights to file a motion for forfeiture of the bond that iApple had to post to get the injunction. While Sammy might not succeed in getting a forfeiture decision, they should at least get an award of sanctions against iApple for the under-handed deeds. posted on 15 Jul 2012, … [Read more...] about Comments for : Apple had lawyers send letters to retailers to halt sales of certain Samsung products

Hemlocke (unregistered) What "innovation" is involved when you are infringing upon the IP of another company! Protecting your IP does the exact opposite of "stifling innovation."you are forced to either pay for doing something a certain way, or you find another way to do it. If it was not protected and it was a good method, companies would just use it for free and skip figuring out a better way to do it. 36.
