    We asked, you told us: You'd rather have bigger bezels than a notch

    Unsurprisingly, over 58 percent of the participants on our polls across the website, Twitter, and YouTube voted that they would rather have a smartphone with larger bezels like those on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 than have a notched display. Despite being an innovative approach to hiding the front-facing sensors, only a quarter of the voters were interested in manual or automatic slider mechanisms. While the design might seem incredibly cool, many people appear to fear that the moving parts will end up breaking with extended use.

    Dyson might design an air purifier that also works as headphones

    Dyson has a lengthy list of air purifiers, but it's reportedly considering developing a model that's not quite anything it's ever created before. According to Bloomberg, the company has lodged patents for a wearable air purifier that will double as a pair of headphones. Wearable purifiers are already a thing, especially for countries like China where air pollution gets so bad it can increase the chances of getting stroke or cancer. However, they mostly come in the form of necklaces and, in some cases, scarves or masks.

    Quantum 'compass' promises navigation without using GPS

    GPS is vital to modern navigation, but it's extremely fragile. Never mind coverage -- if a satellite fails or there's a jamming attack, it quickly becomes useless. Scientists may have a much more robust answer, though. Scientists have demonstrated a "commercially viable" quantum accelerometer that could provide navigation without GPS or other satellite technology. The device uses lasers to cool atoms to extremely low temperatures, and then measures the quantum wave properties of those atoms as they respond to acceleration.

    No display for your Mac Mini? No problem.

    Astropad’s Luna Display isn’t just for your MacBook. It turns out that you can take advantage of that tiny little red dongle to turn your iPad into your one and only Mac Mini display.

That’s why the Luna Display turns any iPad into a second monitor. It works wirelessly and pretty well.

    It's Repair Day: No One Should Be Punished for "Contempt of Business Model"

    Repair is one of the secret keys to a better life. Repairs keep our gadgets in use longer (saving our pocketbooks) and divert e-waste from landfills or toxic recycling processes (saving our planet). Repair is an engine of community prosperity: when you get your phone screen fixed at your corner repair shop, your money goes to a locally owned small business (my daughter and the phone screen guy's daughter go to the same school and he always tut-tuts over the state of my chipped and dented phone at parent-teacher nights).

    Scientists Are Developing 'Electric Gum' That Never Runs Out of Flavor

    A device which zaps your tongue with electricity sounds more like some cruel and unusual torture method than it does something folks might do for enjoyment. But you’d be wrong — at least when it comes to the electric tongue zapper created by researchers at Meiji University in Japan. They’ve been working on technology they call “unlimited electric gum,” able to electrically simulate flavor sensations when a person chews a stick of specially created “gum.”

In a move that appears to have come without much public acknowledgement, Google is making those same real-time Google Translate powers available to all Google Assistant-optimized headphones.

    Apple Is Clearly Working on AR Glasses

    Apple has bought Akonia Holographics, a Colorado-based startup dedicated to the manufacturing of displays for augmented reality glasses. In addition to other recent purchases, this is an extremely strong indicator that the Cupertino company is actively working on AR glasses. According to Akonia’s web site, its more than 200 patents result in a technology that can create “thin, transparent smart glass lenses that display vibrant, full-color, wide field-of-view images.” Just the kind of qualities that would be touted by Phil Schiller at a special AR glasses event.

    Instead of a smart lock, Locky makes your key smart

    It isn’t always practical or possible to replace a component of your home with smart tech, so plenty of companies are trying to find ways to add smart features to your life by augmenting what you already have. The latest is focused on your key: it’s called Locky, and instead of adding a smart lock to your home, it adds smart features to your regular metal key. The gadget is basically a housing for your key. Using Bluetooth and some sensors, it’s able to tell when you use it to lock and unlock a door or forget the key entirely and walk away.

    Apple Watch Series 4's processing power will blow you away

    The new S4 chip in the Apple Watch Series 4 is an absolute beast when it comes to processing power. Apple didn’t brag too much about the S4 during its September keynote other than saying the chip is two times faster than last year’s model. There aren’t any benchmark scores for it. However, a developer recently put the S4 through some serious tests — and the results are insanely impressive

    What Do You Know About the History of the iPod?

    The iPod wasn't the first MP3 player — there were a number of models from a number of companies before Apple unveiled what came to be one of its flagship products — but the iPod was the first truly great MP3 player. It didn't have the most storage or the most features, but it did have a dead-simple user interface, terrific industrial design, and the simplicity and polish that define Apple products (it also has an interesting story about how it got its name).

    We’ve seen a similar icon before, back on the fifth beta of iOS 12. That icon showed an iPad with no Home button, rounded corners and no notch, but it was a small icon designed to be used in the battery widget. Therefore, it didn’t give us a lot of detail on the form factor of the device. Now, we’ve found a more detailed look at the 2018 iPad Pro redesign within iOS.

    Truly wireless earbuds haven’t caught up to AirPods after more than a year

    AirPods are the best truly wireless earbuds available because they nail the essentials like ease of use, reliability, and battery life. There are alternatives that definitely sound better from Bose, B&O Play, and other. But they often cost more and all of them experience occasional audio dropouts. AirPods don’t. I’d argue they’re maybe the best first-gen product Apple has ever made.

    Fingerprint sensors are still better than facial recognition

    Alongside the various Android phones I've tested, I've been using the iPhone X for about two months now. One of the most noteworthy changes to the iPhone X over previous models is the removal of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, now replaced with a high-tech face unlock function Apple calls Face ID. Some Android phones have similar features; the OnePlus 5T, Huawei P20 Pro, and the Galaxy S9 all feature facial recognition in some form, but all maintain the fingerprint sensor, too. Why?
