google-logo-1200x630

Today was the day that Google “officially” announced its new palatte of hardware offerings, including new smartphones.  I say officially because pretty much everything leaked on the internet.  And although there were some (like me) who harbored secret hopes that there was some mystery left – well…nope, it was gone.  But if you didn’t get a chance to catch the one hour and change spectacle that Google put on today in NYC, read on for the recap of it all.

[Opinion] Why Apple should buy Fitbit

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 10.12.18 AM

A lot has been made recently of Apple’s newest version of their smartwatch.  And Apple has certainly made significant advancements in not only their own product, but in the genre of smart wearables in general.  But even with a larger display, more accurate tracking and sensors, and advanced features like heart monitoring and an ECG built in, there are still some areas where the Apple Watch series 4 falls short.  Apple can use in house solutions to untangle these problems, but there is also another option that they could avail themselves of.  And in choosing this path, they might find that they are gaining more than they could at first imagine.  I think that Apple should buy Fitbit as a whole, and fold them into their smart wearable division.  Let me tell you why.

RED’s Hydrogen One smartphone in titanium hits significant delays

screen-shot-2018-04-20-at-11-23-00-am.pngIn a recent forum post by Jim Jannard, he expresses that the first run of the Titanium version of the camera companies smartphone “is a disaster” and “all fail.”  While some folks who pre-ordered got access to a special limited edition “Houdini” version of the phone (which is now out in the users hands) those who pre-ordered the variant made of titanium will have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on the RED Hydrogen media machine.

As a way to make up for the customers he assumes will “be pretty pissed off” he’s offering to send those who are still on board both an aluminum version of the phone, AS WELL as the eventual titanium version.  Considering the cost of both of these devices, this is a pretty big deal, and a bit of a steal for those willing to stick it out and wait.  You can see a recap of the post below.  Anyone pre-order the device and have it in hand?  Anyone sticking it out for the titanium PLUS aluminum?  Let us know in the comments section below…we’d love to hear from you.
