    Apple AirPods 2nd-gen review: even more wireless

    f the many new products that Apple announced over the past couple of weeks, none have been more hotly anticipated than the second-generation AirPods. And yet, the new AirPods are the least new product Apple revealed this month. The new AirPods look so similar to the first-generation version announced nearly three years ago that they are virtually indistinguishable. The design, fit, and sound quality are exactly the same as before, as are many other features. Wearing the new AirPods isn’t any more of a flex than the first-generation because nobody seeing you will be able to tell the difference.

    The iPhone’s camera used to be a selling point

    There are many good reasons to own an iPhone: your social life might revolve around iMessage, you might value Apple’s emphasis on privacy, or perhaps you appreciate the quality of Apple’s displays and software experience. But the one thing that once exemplified Apple’s lead over the Android chasing pack, the iPhone’s camera, is no longer top of the list of reasons to want an iPhone. The iPhone camera has fallen behind, and it’s now something users tend to accept rather than anticipate.

    Video of Apple's W.A.L.T. in Action - The 1993-Edition iPhone

    There has been a lot said about Apple’s development of the iPhone, and the history and inspiration behind the device – such as this notable 1983 concept of a “Telephone Mac.” One of the most notable examples of this is Apple’s lesser known desk phone known as the W.A.L.T. (Wizzy Active Lifestyle Telephone). The W.A.L.T., which was announced at MacWorld 1983, was never released to the public, and only a very small handful of prototypes were ever constructed for the device.

    Sony’s latest mirrorless camera shows the limits of an aging platform

    If you had to solve a CAPTCHA challenge every time you opened an app on your phone, would you still use that app? That’s how I’ve felt using Sony’s new a6400, where wading through pages of settings and submenus to change vital settings makes an otherwise solid mirrorless camera unreasonably frustrating to use.

    Why Apple AirPods Are Suddenly, Seemingly Everywhere

    One writer's theory on why, two years after launching, Apple's expensive, magical headphones are suddenly taking over our headspace. Look to your left. Look to your right. If you’re on the sidewalk, a subway, a train, or your dorm couch; at a WeWork, an airport, a construction site, or an open-plan office, there are almost certainly little white sticks nearby poking out of someone’s head. Apple’s AirPods have slowly and all at once taken over America’s ears.

    Hidden AirPower image with iPhone XS and new AirPods discovered on Apple site

    The AirPods page was updated yesterday to highlight the new features in the updated model and mentions the wireless charging case. However, the previously featured picture of AirPods and an iPhone X laying on the AirPower mat was removed in the redesign. It turns out — there is actually a new never-before-seen official AirPower image hidden in the source code that was intended to be on the AirPods page. It shows the new AirPods charging case and “David’s” iPhone XS laying on the so far unreleased AirPower mat...

    'AirPods 2' rumored to launch in spring alongside AirPower, feature new black color option

    The second-gen AirPods are already in production at Apple partner Inventec, the Chinese-language Economic Daily News said. Apple is also allegedly using a new exterior material for both the earbuds and the charging case, providing better grip. Shipping alongside updated AirPods will be the long-delayed AirPower charging mat, the report added. Apple first teased the AirPower alongside the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X in 2017. The product incorporates in-house technology allowing simultaneous charging of multiple devices, including Qi-compliant iPhones, the Apple Watch and an as-yet-unreleased AirPods wireless charging case.

    Can a Pixel Watch save Wear OS?

    It was an up and down week for fans of Wear OS with the news that Google may launch the oft-rumored Pixel Watch later this year, followed by the NPD report that Wear OS had probably at best a 10% smartwatch market share in the US last year. But, if you are a glass (Oops, probably shouldn’t mention Glass in a Google wearables post.) is half full sort of person, that doesn’t sound that bad considering the lack of hardware support from Qualcomm and the horrendous misstep that was Android Wear 2.0 in early 2017.

Ming-Chi Kuo — who has always been accurate with Apple predictions, thanks to his contacts deep into the Cupertino company’s supply chain — said today in a note to investors that manufacturing may start as soon as October 2019 and no later than the second quarter of 2020. 9to5Mac first reported on the news.

    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.

    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).

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.”
