GoPro’s Hero5 Black and Session action cameras are official

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA GoPro would have been hard-pressed to find a more scenic locale with which to launch its latest offers. Some 2,800 feet above sea level, couched at the feet of the Sierra Nevada mountains that straddle the California/Nevada state line.

iPhone 7 screen testing: ‘visually indistinguishable from perfect’

iPhone 7 Display
On paper, the iPhone 7 screen looks like the same thing that came before: same screen technology, same pixel count, same size. But top-level stats aren't everything, and a deeper dive into the technology behind the new display and the results it gives tells a rather exciting story. DisplayMate Technologies has been doing thorough analysis of iPhone screens since the early days of smartphones. This year, they put the iPhone 7 through the same battery of tests to find out how the older LCD technology stacks up against the newer competition.

‘Star Trek’-style surveillance drone for the US military

1473959977389
It looks like a Star Trek Bird of Prey, and acts like a drone that terrorists cannot escape: A new military aircraft that’s powered by the sun and can conduct missions without landing for 45 days. Airbus Defence and Space calls the new drone the High Altitude Pseudo Satellite (HAPS), but it’s been dubbed the Zephyr. What’s a “pseudo satellite”? It has satellite-type capabilities like extreme surveillance— but is on demand with the flexibility and versatility of an unmanned aircraft.

Is Apple thinking about removing the headphone jack from MacBooks, too?

macbook pro oled concept bar
In the wake of the iPhone 7 shipping without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, many have wondered how the controversial design decision might impact other devices in Apple's product lineup. While removing the headphone jack on a relatively small and tightly packed device like the iPhone can be justified as a means to make room for other components, it's hard to make a similar argument for removing the jack on larger devices like the iPad and Apple's Mac lineup.

Review: Apple tees up the future with iPhone 7

New Amazon Fire tablet brings Alexa everywhere with you

Amazon Fire HD Tablet

Amazon's smart AI may have made its debut inside a Bluetooth speaker, but Amazon doesn't plan a life of confinement for poor Alexa. The AI has already appeared inside third-party devices, but today, Amazon launched a new Fire tablet with Alexa onboard.

The new Fire HD 8 brings improved software and hardware to the party, when compared to Amazon's previous generation. There's 1.5GB of RAM rather than just 1GB, double the amount of built-in storage (16GB in the base model), and a bigger battery. The things that made the Fire HD 8 great -- good speakers, decent screen, comfortable design -- have remained the same.

But until now, the shortest thing you could typically listen to was a three minute song, especially when you factor in the time to get your headphones untangled, on, and playing. Hearing anything shorter was more trouble than it was worth. Yet with wireless earbuds going mainstream thanks to the unveiling… Read More
