But the S7 edge has seen a price cut to ₹50,900 ($745), making it a much more alluring option. For years now, Galaxy Note phones featured the best hardware that Samsung has to offer. The large screen and S Pen differentiated the Note lineup from the more mainstream Galaxy S phones, but this year Samsung is unifying its product lines. As such, we're looking at largely unchanged hardware from the S7 and S7 edge, and near-identical designs. Samsung may not have the most...

When Mashable requested a ride on Thursday, a PR rep told us the car's battery "needed charging", and that we'd have to try again another day.

Fujifilm's new X-A3 is a selfie powerhouse

The Verge - 25 Aug 2016 07:00
Fujifilm has announced the X-A3, a new version of the entry-level model in its X-series of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. The X-A3 improves on its predecessor with a new 24.2-megapixel APS-C... sensor, better autofocus, and a screen that flips up 180 degrees -- that's five degrees better than the X-A2, a camera that was already tailor-made for selfies. The company was apparently able to squeeze five more degrees out of the screen's rotation thanks to a new "slide-and-tilt mechanism," according to the press release, and should make it even easier to use at arm's length. It's not the only part of the press release that Fujifilm tries to measure a new feature by its selfie-ability. The company's really pushing that angle with the...

Canon 5D Mark IV DSLR Announced

The Huffington Post - 25 Aug 2016 06:38
Canon 5D Mark IV DSLRAfter way too long of a wait, we finally have a sequel from the famed Canon 5D Mark III. While Canon has enjoyed plenty of success with that camera, it certainly has felt a little old in recent... months, especially in comparison to the newer mirrorless Sony A7RII and Nikon D810 DSLR. Thankfully, we have quite a few new things to get excited over in the Canon 5D Mark IV so let's take a look. You can Pre-order today: B&H Photo Canon has upped the resolution to 30MP, less than the 36MP D810 and far less than the 42MP A7RII but still more than enough for most shooters and this should help them in low light results. Canon has struggled in their sensor technology so I remain skeptical that this new sensor will deliver the high dynamic range and crisp black levels of the competition. We have a...

Specs on offer include a MediaTek Helio X20 SoC with ten CPU cores (two Cortex A72 at 2.1GHz, four Cortex A53 at 1.8GHz, and four Cortex A53 at 1.4GHz), dual SIM slots with a hybrid microSD slot, 13MP f/2.0 camera with PDAF, storage configurations of 16GB and 64GB, and a massive 4100mAh battery.

Sometimes you really don't want the people around you to see what's on your laptop screen, so HP has come up with a solution. It's developed a new screen that can cut off viewing angles with the press... of a button, making it much harder for anyone on either side of a laptop to see what's being displayed. The feature works by preventing light from shooting off to the side. That way, when it's active, you should only be able to see the laptop if you're facing more-or-less straight on, within the the 70-degree arc right in front of it; 95 percent of light directed to either side of that is supposed to be cut off.

The Canon 5D Mk IV is aWe've been waiting for a very long time for a replacement for the Canon 5D Mk III; and today we're getting its successor in the form of the Canon 5D Mk IV. The replacement was well worth the wait and... if you look at the grand scheme of things and what Canon is trying to do, it simply makes a lot of sense. The camera isn't being positioned as high as the Canon 5Ds (which is a spectacular camera) but instead is going to continue to target the photographer that needs a workhorse camera, great video and a balance of both resolution and high ISO output.

Canon today announced the 5D Mark IV, the fourth iteration of the company's popular full-frame DSLR camera originally launched in 2005. It's the first Canon DSLR to shoot 4K video, and it's also the... first 5D to come with Wi-Fi connectivity and a touchscreen. The 5D Mark IV will be available in early September for $3,499. Just about everything inside the 5D Mark IV is an upgrade over its successor, the 5D Mark III -- welcome news, if a bit unsurprising, since that camera was released in 2012. The Mark IV employs an all-new 30.4-megapixel sensor, has a native ISO range of 100-32,000 (which is expandable to 50-102,400), and uses Canon's Digic 6+ image processor. It gets a small bump up in shooting speed, too -- 7 frames per second versus 6...

Canon's new 5D Mark IV DSLRNikon may have pioneered DSLR video recording with its D90, but it was Canon's 5D Mark II, released in 2008, which really gave amateur filmmakers the power to shoot high-quality full HD video with TV... and movie-worthy production values. Canon's new 5D Mark IV succeeds the Mark III with more of everything. But most importantly, it records 4K video, something mirrorless cameras like Panasonic's GH4 have had for years and Sony's Alpha-series cameras now come standard with. SEE ALSO: Samsung's Gear 360 is the VR video camera for the masses The 30.4-megapixel, weather-sealed, full frame camera is a worthy upgrade for any serious photographer.

Canon offers SD card-shapedCanon has introduced a Wi-Fi adapter shaped remarkably like an SD card, designed to bring wireless connectivity to dual card slot cameras like the EOS 7D II and 5DS/R. The W-E1 adapter will be sold... bundled with the EOS 7D II as well as separately, and will work with previously purchased 7D II and 5DS/R models once a firmware updated is applied. Though it looks like an SD card, the W-E1 doesn't include any storage, so the camera's available CF card slot will need to be used. When used with the EOS 7D II the card can transfer stills and MP4 video files; with the EOS 5DS/R only still images can be transferred.  The W-E1 will be available in early September for $50. A new Canon EOS 7D II kit with the W-E1 and the EF-S 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS USM lens will go on sale in October for $2,449; a...

Coinciding with the announcement of the 5D Mark IV, Canon has introduced updates to two L-series lenses: the EF 16-35mm F2.8L III USM and EF 24-105mm F4L IS II USM. The 24-105mm F4L II offers improved... image stabilization, claiming four stops to its predecessor's three, and adds air sphere coating for better resistance to ghosting and flare. Two aperture blades have been added, totaling 10 now - arguably one more than it should have for pleasing sunstar rendition. The third iteration of Canon's 16-35mm F2.8L uses a large diameter GMO (glass-molded) dual surface aspherical lens. Like its predecessors the lens is water- and dust-resistant, and Canon claims the new lens boasts improved durability. We've seen some initial comparisons vs. the Mark II, and the Mark III clearly addresses one...

The 30MP Dual Pixel CMOS sensor allows for fast phase-detection autofocus in video and -for the first time in a Canon full-frame body - continuous focus for stills shooting in live view. Video can be captured in the DCI (4096 x 2160) 4K format at up to 30p (and up to 60p in 1080, and 120p in 720). 4K video is captured in the high quality but inefficient Motion JPEG format.

How Apple stopped the SiriWhen Siri was originally released on the iPhone 4S back in 2011, the reviews were somewhat lukewarm. On the positive side, having an intelligent assistant baked into a massively popular smartphone was... a huge leap forward. On the other hand, Siri didn't always perform as advertised. Even more problematic was that Siri's feature set was purposefully stunted by Apple. In fact, the Siri Apple released in 2011 wasn't even as capable as the Siri app that Siri's original developers had previously released on the App Store. What's more, it eventually became apparent that rival AI systems from the likes of Google were far superior than what Apple was bringing to the table.

World's largest aircraftThe developer of the world's largest aircraft says the blimp-shaped airship sustained damage after it made a bumpy landing Wednesday on its second test flight in eastern England. Hybrid Air Vehicles... said it is trying to figure out what caused the rough landing of the 302-foot (92-meter) Airlander 10 during its 100 minute flight Wednesday in Bedfordshire, north of London. "The Airlander experienced a heavy landing and the front of the flight deck has sustained some damage, which is currently being assessed," the company said. "Both pilots and the ground crew are safe and well and the aircraft is secured and stable at its normal mooring location." A hybrid of blimp, helicopter and airplane, the Airlander is able to stay aloft for days at a time. It is designed to use less fuel than a plane,...

Here's What Being on Mars Sounds Like

Gizmodo - 25 Aug 2016 01:19
Here's What Being on MarsNone of us will probably ever make it to the red planet but if you want to get a feel for what Mars would sound like (or hear what it's like from inside an airlock), saddle up with this video from... Cody's Lab. He drops a camera inside a vacuum chamber and then turns down the pressure to mimic what it's like on Mars. He actually makes it so that there's no air inside the chamber at all, which means that sound can't be created. It's pretty chilling to hear that sort of silence (even if we hear silence all the time).

Facebook knows if you're aOne of the reasons why Facebook is so beloved by advertisers is because the social networking giant has access to all sorts of granular data about your background and interests. All the more... interesting is that Facebook even has a good idea as to your political leanings, even if you rarely, if ever, "like" or express an interest in a particular candidate or political cause. Interestingly enough, there's an extremely simple way to see what side of the political spectrum Facebook thinks you fall on. It all goes back to advertising dollars, after all, so you better believe that Facebook has a good inclination as to whether or not you're on the Trump bandwagon or if your heart still beats proudly for Bernie Sanders.

Mac Rumors - 25 Aug 2016 00:51
Apple Stops Signing iOS 9.3.2As of today, Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.3.2 and iOS 9.3.3 for compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models, meaning users can no longer upgrade or downgrade to those versions of iOS using... iTunes.

Apple Adds to Vintage SoftwareAn Apple collector who was selling his vintage Apple software collection on eBay received a surprise earlier this month when Apple itself bought out much of his software inventory for its software... archives (via MacGeneration). According to seller "Marcoguy," he made several listings of various Apple CDs and received a message from someone asking to buy a dozen discs. When he went to ship the package, he noticed it was going to 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California, Apple's corporate address. Upon asking the buyer about the purchase, he was told that Apple maintains a lab at its headquarters containing archived materials. "We were missing some of the disks that you placed on eBay," wrote the buyer. So yeah, Apple bought some of their own software back from me. :) Feel free to post if...

Creepy robot octopus moves byResearchers at Harvard have come up with an innovation that may eventually give us the terrifying organic-style automatons we've always feared: a robotic octopus.  Nicknamed the Octobot, the... mechanism was created using a combination of 3D printing, molding and soft lithography. To make the Octobot move autonomously, the developers used a microfluidic logic circuit, which directs the flow of its chemical reaction of hydrogen peroxide that's converted into gas when it comes in contact with its platinum components.  According the researchers, the robot has no rigid parts, which means that it would essentially feel like an organic construct to the touch. There are no plans to release the robot commercially, but the researchers hope the innovation might one day be used for rescue efforts that...

After that the phone is toast. While the phone may be intermittently operational afterwards, it's unlikely to make a full recovery.
