Phil Nickinson 19 Dec 2009 15 Bad news for those of you with the HTC Magic and Dream on Canada's Rogers network: Looks like you'll be stuck with Android 1.5 for the forseeable future. On HTC's Web site, under "Can I upgrade my Rogers Magic device to Android 1.6, it says ..."HTC is not currently planning any Android 1.6 upgrades for Rogers Dream or Magic.

The rebirth of the Razr has been rumored for several months now. And honestly, such a product is a bit of a no-brainer. The Lenovo-owned company is embracing the burgeoning (if sputtering) world of foldables with the return of one of its most iconic models. While it’s true that Motorola’s kept the Razr name alive in some form or another well into the Android era, everything that’s come since has failed to recapture the magic of the once mighty brand. From the looks of things, however, the newly announced Razr is a lovely bit of symmetry. The product, which was announced earlier today in Los Angeles, leans into the lackluster criticism that foldables are simply a return of the once-ubiquitous clamshell design. Motorola Razr According to Motorola, the company has been toying around with flexible technology for some time now. Per a press release: “In 2015, a cross functional team, comprised of engineers and designers from both Motorola and Lenovo, was assembled … [Read more...] about Motorola throws back to the future with a foldable Razr reboot
If you look on the back of your TV, you’ll likely see a few HDMI ports—but one of them may be labeled ARC, or something similar. This is no ordinary HDMI port. HDMI ARC can greatly simplify your audio cabling needs and setup if you know where to look for it and how to implement it. HDMI ARC: The HDMI Specification You’ve Never Heard Of Historically, an AV receivers was the heart of the home media experience, and everything connected through it. DVD/Blu-ray players, cable boxes, game consoles, and other devices all went into the box, and then video and audio signals were split between the TV and the speakers, respectively. While there is still a time and place for a dedicated receiver, many newer HDTVs—with smart features built right in and a plethora of ports on the back—can serve as the hub, with the receiver taking a back seat (if there is a receiver at all).

Bixby is, by far, the most frustrating part of the S9. It’s true, of course, that no voice assistant is perfect, but a full year after Samsung’s smart assistant debuted on the Galaxy S8, it still feels unfinished. Of course, the company’s made some significant progress, and a slew of artificial intelligence startup acquisitions point to an offering that’s going to continue to get better. It was inevitable that Samsung was going to be playing catch up for a while, given the multi-year head start of Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant and even Cortana. It didn’t help, either, that the assistant stumbled out of the gate. The S8 launched with a devoted Bixby button, a show of commitment to the service, moving forward — but it was lacking far more basic functionality. Here in the States, Bixby didn’t have voice control, relegating interaction to what essentially amounted to a trumped up content hub located a swipe away from the desktop. That … [Read more...] about Samsung’s Galaxy S9 deserves better than Bixby
