Purported iPhone 7 chassis pictures show redesigned antenna lines, new larger camera

It is new iPhone rumor season once again: Following case leaks for Apple’s next-generation iPhone models last week, expected to debut in fall, an image purports to show technical drawings for the iPhone 7 chassis (via NowhereElse.fr).

The images show the back of the phone. At first glance, it’s worth noting that the horizontal antenna lines on the back of the phone are gone completely. There are still lines along the bottom edge of the device, represented by the lighter line following the curve of the body, but the main straight antenna lines seen on iPhone 6s are not present in these drawings. Looking closely, the images also suggest that the camera has changed for the iPhone 7 …

Nest reveals new Nest Cam, 2nd generation Nest Protect, updated iOS app

cam_main_final_2x protect_main_final_2x

Following the Nest Cam outed by Best Buy earlier this morning, Nest did in fact take the stage today to announce its new lineup of products. Besides the Nest Cam, Tony Fadell and company showed off the 2nd generation Nest Protect smoke detector, a new mobile app for iOS and Android that brings all of the company’s new products together, and more. Unfortunately, the company’s flagship Nest Thermostat didn’t get any hardware upgrades today, but here’s what’s new…

Nest Protect

The new Nest Protect is an iterative upgrade, packing a new split spectrum sensor which “uses two wavelengths of light to spot different kinds of smoke,” helping it to better “catch both fast and slow-burning fires.” There’s also a new smoke chamber, sporting a “stainless steel screen with tiny hexagonal holes” which helps the Protect stay clean of foreign debris and prevents false positives.

It also comes with a new App Silence feature, which will allow users to silence the alarm with their phones. Once a month, the new Nest Protect will test its speaker and horn, and, starting with Liberty Mutual and American Family, a new Nest Safety Rewards program provides discounts on home insurance to those who are willing to share information about their Nest Protect with insurance companies.

With App Silence you can quiet down an alarm from your phone using Bluetooth LE. No more climbing ladders or waving dish towels. Walk into the room and make sure everything’s OK. Then open the notification on your phone – it will open the app where you can press the Silence button. Tap and hold and Nest Protect will quiet down.

The 2nd generation Nest helps you make sure it’s always working by testing its sensors and batteries 400 times a day, you can also manually test all your alarms from your phone. You can order now from Nest.com for $99. Nest says that the Protect is built to last 10 years thanks to a newer long-lasting carbon monoxide sensor.

Nest Cam

Along with the 2nd generation Nest Protect, Nest took time to announce its new Dropcam-based Nest Cam hardware, featuring 8 infrared LEDs, night vision video support, “no blind spots,” and “unique algorithms.” This device was leaked last week, and it looks like the FCC documents we uncovered indeed show this device.

Nest Cam has a beautiful, completely redesigned stand. It lets you see your home in super clear 1080p HD video. It comes with advanced Night Vision. It has a mic and speaker so you can talk and listen. And when you subscribe to Nest Aware with Video History, the new cloud recording service from Nest, you can rewind 10 or 30 days of video and get even more accurate motion alerts.

Nest mentions the ability to view your video feed from the new Nest app to “stay informed” on what’s happening in your home, new mobile application notifications, vivid 1080p resolution recording, a 130-degree field of view, and a new Nest Aware service which will record to the cloud.

You can learn more about the Nest Cam at Nest’s website, and you can buy Nest Cam for $199.

Nest App

Nest has also introduced a new version of its app. The new app will allow you to control your Nest Cam, Nest Protect, previous Dropcam hardware, and of course, your Nest Thermostat. It brings several new features across all of the new hardware, including the aforementioned App Silence feature, Safety Checkup for Nest Protect, newly-rebranded Nest Aware could recording, and more.

Guess what Motorola's top-selling phone of all time is? Nope, it's not the Razr , it's last year's Moto G . For 180 bucks off-contract and unlocked, it was a hell of a lot of phone. Well, the 2014 model is here, and it's bigger and better, and it costs just the same.

Moto X 2014 Hands-On: Better, Smarter, Bigger

Here at last! The Moto X was one of our favorite phones from last year, and now the sequel is here. It's called... the Moto X. Guess the X+1 thing was just a codename. Labels aside, we've spent a good half day with the new Moto X, and so far it lives up to the lofty promise of its name.

This amazing photograph by Gerald Donovan is proof: the biggest and tallest firework show in the world, shot on New Year's Eve 2013 at the Burj Khalifa, the highest man-made structure in the world at 2,722 feet (829.8 meters).
