One of the iPhone 8's hottest new features was just unveiled by another company
The company that shamelessly copies everything Apple does finally beat Apple to the punch...
The iPhone 7 sports one of the best smartphone cameras that has ever existed. Reviews from professional photographers and many photo and video samples already make that point. But DxOMark’s iPhone 7 camera review is certainly worth a read, as it explains all the intricacies of Apple’s camera innovations.
The camera pros at DxOMark put the 4.7-inch device through various paces, concluding that the iPhone 7 is the best camera Apple made to date. The phone outscores all of its predecessors, but it still isn’t the top-rated camera on DxOMark.
Gadget blogs have been saying for months how “boring” Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are, but apparently someone forgot to tell consumers around the world because sales so far are apparently through the roof. We won’t know any exact numbers until Apple reports its September-quarter earnings next month, and continuing supply shortages will undoubtedly impact fiscal fourth-quarter sales figures. But a new report suggests that not even Apple was expecting its new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to be as popular as they have been so far. More →
China is the one major market that was not affected by the massive Galaxy Note 7 recall. Samsung said the phones in the region are safe because they contain batteries made by a local supplier, not Samsung SDI. The Samsung subsidiary made the exploding batteries that equipped Galaxy Note 7 units sold outside of China, which is why Galaxy Note 7 sales were not interrupted in the country.
But recent Galaxy Note 7 explosions in China may end up hurting Samsung anyway. More →

The death march of BlackBerry’s handset business was closely chronicled by BGR for a long period of time. We gave the world an inside look at the company’s downfall after it failed to pivot when Apple’s iPhone changed the smartphone market, and now those early missteps have finally led to today.

Despite the fact that Spotify allows me to listen to any song I want to at any time, I often find myself using Pandora instead. It’s not that I prefer Pandora to Spotify, it’s just that I can’t be bothered to make my own playlists, and my Pandora account already features dozens of stations that have been tuned to my preferences.
On Tuesday, Spotify might have won me back over with the introduction of Daily Mix: a series of playlists which include your favorite songs as well as songs that the streaming service thinks you might enjoy.
Say what you will about Uber, there’s simply no denying that the company always has is eye laser-focused and fixated on the future. After spearheading the ridesharing revolution against overwhelming odds, Uber’s next big bet rests on self-driving cars. In fact, Uber just a few short weeks ago began rolling out its first wave of self-driving Uber cars in Pittsburgh.
Interestingly enough, Uber’s grand plan to revolutionize the way we travel doesn’t end with cars. On the contrary, the company envisions a future where users will take advantage of VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) aircraft in order to travel short distances and bypass local traffic congestion in the process. And even further down the line, Uber believes that self-driving VTOL aircraft may become a reality.

There are so few dedicated gadgets these days that haven’t been replaced by smartphones, but universal remotes represent one category that has managed to survive so far. Yes, there are smartphone apps that control everything you can imagine, and even a few smartphones out there with built-in infrared sensors. But there’s still something to be said for having one single dedicated device with physical buttons and months-long battery life to control all your gear.
Right now, for one day only, Amazon dropped the price of the Logitech Harmony Ultimate All in One Remote with Customizable Touch Screen and Closed Cabinet RF Control, but only while supplies last. This is definitely a deal you should check out. More →
