Sony Xperia Z2 Quick Review: Much Better Than the Z1, Especially the Camera

When my HTC One M7 smartphone ended up as roadkill off my motorcycle, more than a few cars passed over it. I decided to get a Sony Xperia Z1 for a few months before the Z2 came out. Now that it has, I can give you the full details between both models, and how well it performs against the competition.

Lunecase iPhone Case Works Notification Magic

Discreet mobile notifications are definitely the way of the future. Having the ability to mute yours and to quickly assess what you missed can make you productive. The Lunecase aims to improve the iPhone notification process by displaying alerts on the case itself. It debuted as a prototype at CES and is designed for iPhone 5s, and it uses the electromagnetic waves emitted by your phone to display notifications. That sounds like science-fiction, or is it?

World’s Smallest Magazine Cover

While there’s no shrink ray in existence as of yet, scientists are hard at work at making magazines available for us, just in case we ever get down to the micrometer scale. In fact, a laboratory in Switzerland has managed to print an image so small that you could fit over 2,000 of them onto a single grain of salt. If they were to do this, the title of this article would be called “4,000 pandas on a grain of salt.”

OK, Google Everywhere: Big Google Brother Is Listening

It’s not a myth that everyone uses Google all of the time. If you’re constantly using Google, then you’ll like the fact that it might soon be possible to access the “OK, Google” voice assistant feature from anywhere on your Android phone.

Xplore XC6 Rugged Tablet: It Will Last Longer Than You

I’m usually good about keeping my gear out of harm’s way, but in the last month, I smashed two smartphone screens. I guess it caught up with me, which is probably one of the reasons why a ruggedized tablet makes sense, if you’re always taking yours out and about.

Lytro Illum Camera Refocuses on the High End

When the first Lytro camera was announced, it looked pretty cute, but it was impractical because of its limited options. It was basically just a plaything. Now, however, Lytro wants to change this with the release of a camera designed for professional and prosumer shooters.
