Times, they are a changing, or how Microsoft is telling us to NOT use Internet Explorer

It has barely been four years since Microsoft would tell us to absolutely use Internet Explorer and now… well, now times have changed. For the last four years Microsoft have not supported IE, which means that this particular internet browser is piss easy to break in. It is possible that Microsoft will soon be saying the same thing about Edge, its second browser, since it is currently wrapping up its work on a new, third one; this one, based on the Chromium engine, will be released for open tests sometime in the upcoming weeks. ...

ListenYo, or how to listen to YouTube content without punishing your Internet connection

Have you ever been in a situation where your boss came to you at work and told you to stop watching YouTube as it strains the office’s web connection? I have and let me tell you, it was not pleasant. Other than giving me a mild case of guilt as well as showing how poor our Internet connection is, it also made me think: okay, so how can I listen to YouTube’s content? You see, I have never actually ”watched” stuff on YT at work – I listened to it. Sometimes to music, sometimes to movie or video game bits, sometimes to YT shows or audiobooks. Still, along with ...

Nokia 6.2 (2019) gets a new certification

This one comes from Bluetooth. It is rather thin on information: it says that the device, called HMD Global TA-1140, will receive Bluetooth 5.0. That is all. If you want any more information, you need to look up to different leaks and gossip:– 6,2′ display, 1080 x 2310p,– Snapdragon 632 CPU,– 4 or 6 GB RAM,– Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GPS/GLONASS, Bluetooth 5.0, dual SIM, USB C connectivity, LTE modem,– dual camera 16mpx, LED flash,– fingerprint scanner,– Android 9 Pie,– dimensions: 156,9 x 76,2 x 7,9 mm. ...

Energizer Power Max P18K Pop, a pretty good smartphone with awesome battery

Are you tired of constantly having to charge your phone? Would you prefer a phone that you can just leave for a few days without having to look for that pesky charger? I know that I do, and if I weren’t saving up cash I would probably look to buy Energizer’s new Power Max P18K Pop, a smartphone with a massive 18000mAh battery. This reportedly gives it four days of life before the phone has to be recharged. Afraid that the recharge will take hours? Do not be – 18 W Quick Charge makes sure that it will not be an overly long process. The only concern remaining is weight ...

Chaos & Conquest, new Warhammer mobile game is coming out later this year

Something possibly nice is coming for mobile-gaming Warhammer fans out there. Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest is a strategy game set in the world of seemingly Age of Sigmar (it does not look like 40k, no matter what other websites say), the fantasy-themed setting of WH franchise. C&C puts you in the shoes of a Chaos Lord, champion of the evil Chaos Gods, whose goal is to expand his (or her, I suppose) kingdom and conquer all that there is. Game’s trailer is available, but it fails to explain much about the game other than it will be a strategy with base building elements, ...

Official renders of Xiaomi Mi 9 rear

It is tad weird that the device’s front has not been shown but oh well, lets take what they give; and what they give are the first official renders of the Mi 9 smartphone. What do they show us? – triple main camera (rumour is that it is a 48mpx + 12mpx + ???, with ToF),– a pretty pleasant, blue colour variant,– no rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, which means that there is probably one in the phone’s display.Other gossip surrounding this device speak of tear-shaped notch and specs such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 CPU, 3500mAh battery, 6GB RAM & 128GB memory ...

Vivo is also making a foldable, because why not

This device will probably hit the stores under the iQQQ logo, a new brand made specifically for Vivo’s premium devices. This makes sense, as it is doubtful that one of the first foldables on the market will be cheap. First renders depicting this device have just been revealed by the Chinese website Weibo. They show us a smartphone that folds in the middle of the screen; very much unlike the Xiaomi project, but similiar to the Galaxy F. Specs-wise, nothing is known about Vivo; we will have to wait until 25-28th MWC to learn more. ...

The display of LG G8 ThinQ will also be its loudspeaker

LG will show off its newest flagship, G8 ThinQ, on this year’s MWC 2019, but even before that we will get a look at one of the device’s more interesting features. The name of this feature is Crystal Sound – it is a technology that LG already uses in its TVs that allows the device’s display to also play the role of a loudspeaker. Technicalities of how this happens are complicated, having something to do with the glass vibrations, but it does not matter. G8 ThinQ will have two loudspeakers, one build into its lower front panel and the other one being its display, ...
