Juan has been obsessed with consumer electronics since before computers had GUI’s. Out of college he worked on a JIT computing contract which supported DOE facilities in New Mexico. He’s been featured on numerous podcasts and radio shows lending his tech insights. You can also find him in LA directing voice over actors and producing spoken word recording.
Spending a couple weeks with Huawei’s newest flagship has reinforced our first impressions. This just might be the most attractive phone of 2017. Over that time though, we have more to report on what it’s like to actually use the phone. The Mate name carries a reputation for power user performance. Does this phone live up to that reputation?
We have a problem when companies that control access to the internet also have a vested interest in distributing content on the internet. We have a problem when service providers have unrestricted control to throttle or make access more expensive. We have a problem as major corporations find easier paths to mergers and acquisitions rather than compete.
There really isn’t a “both sides” to this issue. Far smarter individuals than I have spent months clearing the fog of misinformation surrounding this topic. I would highly recommend following Gigi Sohn as one example, she was legal counsel to Tom Wheeler when he was Chairman of the FCC. Her interviews are fantastic. I would also read the dissenting opinions of Mignon Clyburn, an FCC Commissioner opposed to ending Net Neutrality.
Can the LG V30 survive FULL TODDLER STRENGTH! My daughter pushes MIL-STD-810G to its limits! So this is why we should all probably keep cases on our phones these days. Expensive devices are super fragile…
Maybe not quite as popular as shows from the UK or USA, Canada has produced some classic television. Charming programs with fantastic casts and excellent writing. YouTube Channel Encore+ is working with several Canadian production and distribution companies to preserve some popular titles, making them freely available to all who want to watch. Personally, I’m excited to see an easy way to stream Slings & Arrows, since the wife and I are Shakespeare nerds, and this show is one of the truest (and funniest) representations of a life spent in theatre.
Other classics include Are You Afraid of the Dark, Due South, and Degrassi. Conveniently organized in playlists by show, Encore+ promises more to come. Shocking to see under 6000 subscribers at the time this post was written. Check out the link below for some excellent (and free) TV watching.
The Kodak Pixpro team has been well ahead of the curve for panorama and 360° video. The Orbit 360 is their first All-in-One camera solution for truly spherical photos and videos. It does feature an interesting design that I haven’t played with before. It’s the most flexible action camera I’ve ever used, but does that justify the price tag?
