The PadFone is probably the one idea that has made me reconsider that notion. The ability to use my existing cell phone data plan on a tablet, and extend the functionality of my mobile device is a really intriguing notion. If the ASUS Padfone has tmobile 3g frequency support and retails for $650 or under I will pre-order one ASAP. posted on 03 Jun 2011, 00:38 1 25. daniel_bargs (Posts: 325; Member since: 27 Nov 2010) me too! this is the perfect gadget for us all! if u want a tablet, just simply insert the phone into the tablet body then BOOOM! you have a tablet. no separate SIM cards means no separate bills which in turns saves data charges! too smart asus! i have another reason to wait. haha competition really rocks! posted on 20 … [Read more...] about Comments for : The Asus Padfone: Does it make sense?

Ok, now this is getting out of hand - not only hasn't the eventual OLED iPhone 8 been announced yet, but we haven't even seen a glimpse of its production version outside of concept image renders, dummies and admittedly elaborate prototypes. That, however, didn't preclude none other than the McDonald's brand to already start using the alleged shape and form of the "all-screen" iPhone 8 in promo materials. Based on rumors and leaked schematics, these have been created by graphics artists, and somehow McDonald's worked their own app in there to tout promos and discounts. Do they know something? Probably not, just using leaks that have been around for the past few weeks, but still it's interesting to see how they imagine their app looking on the iPhone 8 and its alleged "notch" at the top of the display. As one of the comments eloquently puts it: "The hamburger menu bar totally makes sense here." This crazy leak season has been exactly what Apple CEO Tim Cook referred to in the … [Read more...] about The iPhone 8 image stars in a McDonald’s promo, ‘hamburger menu’ makes sense now

Fingerprint scanners on phones have been around for quite a while now, with feature phones such as the Toshiba Portege G900 offering one as early as 2007. Of course, the modern incarnation of the scanner is far more advanced, and for the most part owes its popularity to Apple and its iPhone 5s, which introduced Touch ID to the masses for the first time. Ever since, fingerprint scanners have become a sort of 'must-have' feature with flagships, and we're already starting to see the tech trickle down to lower end devices as it gets more affordable.Until very recently, however, all we cared about when it came to these clever contraptions was speed and accuracy. There were problems there that needed to be resolved before the category could progress, but if we were to call it, we'd say 2015 finally put these concerns to bed. Fingerprint scanners are now almost universally reliable, at least within devices manufactured in the past year. As is the case with any technology, the question … [Read more...] about 5 extended fingerprint scanner features that make sense, but are still rare

Autonomous cars lend themselves to lending themselves, proponents like to say: we'll rent them instead of owning them. That way, we'll make better use of a smaller number of cars and thus pay much less on average per passenger-mile. If so, then your next car may well be your last—that is, if you can keep it going for the 3 to 50 years it may take before cars become fully, utterly robotic. Three if you're a techno-optimist like Sergei Brin, of Google and its famous Google Car; 50 years if you're a technopessimist, like Volkswagen research director Jürgen Leohold. Or maybe you've already bought your last car no matter which side is right. An entire ecosystem of car sharing is aborning right now, thanks to startups like Uber and Lyft, and it's based on merely human drivers. True, sharing would be even more attractive with robots, which probably explains why Google recently invested US $348 million in Uber. The startup was recently valued at around $18 billion—half … [Read more...] about Does Ridesharing Economics Make Sense Now, Even Without Self-Driving Cars?
When Amazon first announced its PrimeAir drone delivery service, we were skeptical. And we are still skeptical. Google's announcement of Project Wing did very little to reduce our skepticism about delivery drones operating in urban, densely-populated areas (where people want to receive packages quickly). If anything, it made us more skeptical, since what is apparently Google's best solution to the last 50 feet problem (dangling a package from fishing line) seems, uh, sketchy, at best. We'd certainly love for Google or Amazon to make urban drone delivery work. We don't think they'll do it anytime soon, but we'd be ecstatic to be proven wrong by some ingenious implementation of technology. In the meantime, however, logistics company DHL has demonstrated one of the specific situations in which drone delivery is actually a good, realistic, achievable thing. Here's why. Of all of the issues that we've talked about with urban drone delivery, there are two that are probably the most … [Read more...] about When Drone Delivery Makes Sense
There's a lot riding on Apple's new Photos for Mac OS X app. At WWDC,Apple briefly showed off an early version of its upcoming Photos app,which will integrate with iCloud and the iOS 8-based Photos app with theiCloud Photo Library service.Naturally, this plan raised some questions about Apple's iPhoto andAperture products.Late last week, Apple revealed that it has stopped developing newfeatures for Aperture and iPhoto. Instead, the company is focusing onPhotos for OS X. The move away from iPhoto makes sense -- why havemultiple consumer storage and editing apps? -- but the death ofAperture was an outright blow to professional photographers who tookthe plunge and invested in it.By investment, I don'tmean the US$80 the app costs: Professionals and prosumers have putthousands of hours into learning the app, and they have amassed untoldnumbers of photos and gigabytes of data using it.They're not happy.Consumers, on the other hand, are less likely to be in love withiPhoto.
