A possible leak of what the iPhone 16's camera hump might look like is in circulation right now, creating its fair share of buzz and disappointment. The leaked photos show molds of the rear cover purportedly of the iPhone 16, revealing a refreshingly simple dual-camera setup in the rear like that of the iPhone X or... Read more...
It seems Wyze is a little slow to learn from its privacy mishaps. Not many months ago, users were able to see thumbnails of Wyze cameras that were not their own in the Events tab. Even though it was supposedly fixed, another server issue on Friday, February 16th, caused a glitch that resurfaced the issue for some... Read more...
Tesla's Cybertruck just can't seem to have a good day, can it? After suffering from numerous delays to get it into production, an inflated final MSRP, and memes about its dystopian looks, its latest problem centers yet again around its stainless steel panels. Owners are now reporting that the panels are already... Read more...
Google's Android 15 Developer Preview is scheduled for release February 15, meaning that if all goes well, it'll be ready for prime time when the Pixel 9 series drops sometime in the fourth quarter. As the name suggests, this is the developer-only iteration, so it's not meant for public consumption. According to a post on Google's Android Read more...
Carl Pei is getting the internet buzzing again as he shares more information about the upcoming Nothing Phone (2a).

If a U.S. patent filing is any indicator, Samsung's next-gen Galaxy Z Fold 6 may lose the tall, slender-man shape of previous Folds,  potentially replacing it with a revised hinge mechanism along with a broader, thinner device design. While it might be too soon to rejoice, patent filings usually mean companies have... Read more...
Beating Apple to punch, Samsung has scored a win from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by having sleep apnea detection approved for use in compatible Galaxy Watches and phones.

Aston Martin announced its heavily updated 2025 Vantage and Vantage GT3 during the Super Bowl, but curiously skipped out on ad placements during the big game altogether. Who needs Taylor Swift when the venerable Vantage is its own star power? By appearances alone, the current generation Aston Martin Vantage doesn't... Read more...
Samsung is readying a follow-up to its relatively successful fitness watch called the Galaxy Fit 3. The design will be a departure from its earlier pill-shaped predecessors, moving into the more familiar Apple Watch or Amazfit Bit territory. Let's find out what you can expect from the new device. Since the Samsung... Read more...
Unsurprisingly, Apple has been experimenting with prototype foldable clamshell iPhones that fold width-wise. With Samsung, Google, and OnePlus—in the US, at least—already making headways into that niche market, it would be silly for Cupertino NOT to be playing around with the idea of a foldable iPhone either. Here's... Read more...
As Google continues early validation testing on the next Pixel Fold, sources are saying that the company could delay production of the device from Summer to Fall to ensure that the Tensor G4 makes it into the device.

Samsung is defending its decision to dial back on the vividness of the Galaxy S24 Ultra's Vivid display mode, much to the chagrin of some users. Users who prefer the punchy (unrealistic) color setting will have to soldier onward with more muted colors that Samsung says is part of its new display technology. A... Read more...
Allstate's regular drop test demo features Samsung's Galaxy S24 series with surprising (and depressing) results. In some areas, the new models suffered more damage than the previous generation Galaxy S23, despite new cover and frame material on the latest iteration. Even as smartphones have gotten smarter with AI... Read more...
A humble pigeon has been cleared off all suspicion of working as a spy for the Chinese Communist Party by Indian police. Even though it was revealed that the bird was a lost racing pigeon from Taiwan, it was only freed after spending eight months in captivity thanks from the help of concerned local citizens. Press...

It's time to pour one out for Nokia, at least in the smartphone space. The brand, as we know it, will be joining the likes of Palm and Blackberry in the smartphone graveyard. This comes as owner HMD Global shifts focus into making devices with its own "HMD" branding, including smart and dumb phones, tablets, and... Read more...
If you ever wake up one day finding yourself wanting to play OG Doom on an 18x32 pixel display made of E. Coli bacteria with FPS as slow as molasses, then you ought to give MIT researcher Lauren Ramlan a call. We have a gut feeling that you'll have the time of your life, as long as you have 600 years to spare. 600... Read more...
An Australian-based wireless technology company has possibly set a new Wi-Fi transmission record of 1.8 miles while maintaining sufficient throughput for a video call.

BMW bean counters have finally relented—fans of the current BMW Z4 will be getting a pricier six-speed manual transmission option.

An 18-year old British university student got himself in hot water over a bomb joke at a London airport and is now possibly facing expensive fines in Spanish court for the unnecessary hoax.  In July 2022, Aditya Verma with some friends were boarding a plane from Gatwick Airport to the island of Menorca in Spain...
