As my final act before I leave NYC and the LG event, I present to you the hands-on video of the new LG G7 ThinQ! If you enjoy the video, be sure to like and share it with your friends!
Today is the day! I’m here at the event and will be live blogging the news of the day. Some of this stuff was already leaked earlier in the day via this report from Venturebeat, but nonetheless, I’m going to do my best to get you all the nuggets from the event here in NYC about the newest flagship from LG. This post will be continuously updated, so keep it right here…
I’m also including the official press release info at this link here, with a few clips and pics included after the jump on some of the more interesting bits from the press conference.
When I first was approached by the folks over at SuperSaaS about doing a demo of their service, I was a bit ambivalent. After all, since Sean P and I are only loosely classified as a “business” I couldn’t really imagine what kind of benefit using the free version of their online calendar and scheduling tool might bring. But during my trial period, I’ve come to appreciate what a really well thought out (and easy to use) bit of technology this is. And while I was not/am not being compensated for this review (mores the pity!), I think I can safely say this is a product that I would actually consider signing up and paying for, if I was a small business owner in a service related industry. If that’s the situation you’re in, read on to find out why.
With all the press renders that have come out recently, one wonders what info will be left to give – BUT, nonetheless, LG will have their official global launch event to announce the new LG G7 device at 9:30am on Wednesday, May 2nd. There is a small chance we will be able to be on site and check out the device first hand, so if we do, you can bet we will have lots of pics and video for you to check out. Either way, we will be following up on this latest offering from LG next week!
Based on information posted in RED user forums, it looks like a combination of delays in carrier certification and some other technological improvements will delay the summer launch of the RED device by a little bit. Here’s some more details on why…
Since being sick has shown me how truly difficult it is to fall into the life of a content creator, I wanted to do a shout out video to some of the folks that are hard at work making the tech videos that I enjoy.
Check it out, and hopefully you find some cool folks there. Feel free to subscribe, and leave a comment and tell me what you thought about the video. Thanks for watching!
In somewhat surprising news, Apple announced today that you will be able to buy the Product (RED) iPhone in the 8 and 8 Plus variants, starting tomorrow. The Product (RED) items support groups dedicated to eradicating HIV and AIDS in many nations on the African continent. Apple has many other Product (RED) items that support this worthy cause, but if you were in the market for something a little different in your iPhone, this might be for you.
Different from previous years, the metal and glass face of the devices will be black, and not white. This makes them a little more aethestically pleasing (if you ask me) and much less prone to showing smudges and dings as well. Let us know in the comments below if you are planning on picking one up!
