We're learning more details about the upcoming Honor View 20, and it is confirmed to debut on January 22, 2019. Naturally, the device packs in a lot of hot tech and one of the most interesting things about it is how it does away with the maligned notch that most smartphone makers use and goes with a front selfie camera that lives inside a small punch hole in the screen. The screen has been dubbed "All-View," and one mystery that remains right now is precisely how large that screen will be. While we don't know what size the screen will be, its resolution has been tipped at 1080 x 2310, and it will cover the entire front of the device save save for the camera cutout. Another factoid...

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which takes place in Las Vegas every January, is one of the prime spots for unveiling hot new hardware. In fact, manufacturers often keep tight-lipped about the new gear that they'll have on display, in order to deliver an unveil spectacle at the show. The show is the birthplace of big, expensive amazing machines, as well as more practical devices that hope to deliver worthy features at prices mere mortals can afford. We managed to get some hands-on time with one of the the latter at the show: Huawei’s Android-powered Honor 6X smartphone.  The Honor 6X is a full-feature, 5.5-inch, dual rear camera-equipped smartphone that weighs in at a very approachable...

Although some people are content with paying $600+ for a flagship Apple iPhone or Samsung Galaxy smartphone, there are scores of buyers that would be content paying a fraction of that price. Luckily, Chinese OEM Huawei (via its Honor subsidiary) is willing to load as many features into its smartphones as possible, while not depleting your wallet in the process. Such is the case with the new Honor 6X, which manages to cram in an incredibly amount of functionality for an amazingly low $250 price tag unlocked (we’ll get to that in a moment). What you’ll receive is a 5.5-inch 1080p display and a swanky aluminum unibody frame that weighs 5.71 ounces and measures just 8.2mm thick. Powering the device... Read more...
Huawei didn't used to be a name you saw creep up in the consumer universe, but now, it's one name that's growing impossible to miss. After launching a new of slates and smartphones in recent months, the company's making yet another splash with a striking handset: the Honor.

Honor also features a gyroscope for enhanced... Read more...
Lucky and Flo (pictured) were the first dogs trained to sniff out optical discs by their chemical composition.  They were loaned to the Malaysian government in March by the Motion Picture Association.  They were so good at their job, in fact, that a bounty of $29,000 was put out on them.  They've finished their 6-month assignment in Malaysia and are on their way home back to America. Malaysia gave a hero’s send-off Monday to Lucky and Flo, honoring the two DVD-sniffing dogs with medals as they ended a six-month assignment that netted 1.6 million illegal movie discs. The two black Labradors looked puzzled when a multitude of press photographers’ flash bulbs went off as Malaysia’s... Read more...
eeTimes has a fascinating look at whether bad web pages are bad for your physical and mental health. It seems that if the internet was a Post Office, poorly designed web pages would have us all "going postal." Or having "Mouse Rage Syndrome," anyway. What's the root cause of Mouse Rage Syndrome? It's primarily caused by badly designed and hosted Web sites, according to the research center. All Web surfers are familiar with the causes: slow-loading pages, layouts that are difficult to navigate, pesky pop-ups, and unnecessary ads, including banners. And, of course, the killer cause: site unavailability. "The test results indicate... Read more...
