Barclays analyst report suggests ‘AirPods 2’ with better noise cancelling coming in early 2019

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Barclays has released its latest analyst report. The analysts, who have a mixed track record of accuracy, indicate continued iPhone 8 and iPhone X ‘weakness’ is being partly offset by continued sales of iPhone 7. Most interestingly, the report says to expect new AirPods in early 2019 with noise cancelling features.

Due to the small form factor of AirPod earbuds, noise cancelling is very unlikely to rival bigger cans with active noise cancellation like the Beats Studio 3. However, Barclays suggests that there will be design changes and improvements over the current AirPods.

Stunning ‘iPhone SE 2’ Shown in New Concept Images

Hate it or love it, there’s little doubt that Apple’s radically redesigned iPhone X represents “the future,” as far as the company’s design directives are pertinent. We’ve already seen reports on a number of next-generation Apple products, including a new iPad Pro model rumored for release sometime in 2018, which will reportedly boast a similar edge-to-edge display that does away with the Home button and Touch ID in favor of TrueDepth and Face ID.

Rumor also has it that Apple will be releasing a much larger ‘iPhone X Plus’ next year, featuring a massive 6.46-inch OLED display. But what about the company’s smallest, budget-friendly iPhone?

The iPhone SE is indeed a popular choice among those who prefer its much smaller design and affordable price tag — but wouldn’t it be cool if Apple released something like an iPhone X/SE hybrid — one that incorporates iPhone X’s high-end components and technologies and stuffs them into the iPhone SE’s pint-sized frame?

One Dutch designer imagined what the next iPhone SE will look like, captured beautifully in his ‘iPhone SE 2’ concept images which were published Monday morning by the Dutch-language technology blog, Telefoon Abbonement.

iPhone SE 2 Concept Images

As you can see, the iPhone SE 2 concept pictured here essentially embodies a shrunken-down iPhone X — although the artist does retain many of the iPhone SE’s classic design traits, including its aesthetically boxier chassis with square-sided edges. Most notably, this concept also incorporates ‘the notch’, which means that a TrueDepth camera system would be onboard for Face ID, Animoji and more.

Unsurprisingly, due to the obvious size constraints of a 4-inch handset, the inherent concept also does away with the iPhone X’s advanced, rear-facing dual-lens camera system; however above and beyond that, what we’re looking at here is by all appearances an iPhone X crammed into an iPhone SE. And it’s actually quite impressive.

Of course, even Samsung knows there’s still a big market for smaller-screened smartphones like the iPhone SE — and while Apple has acknowledged that the 4-inch form-factor is still a vital part of its product line, whether or not we’ll ever see an update to the handset remains to be seen. While rumors have hinted that we could see an iPhone SE refresh sometime in early 2018, it’s unlikely that the model will look anything like this concept.

Also worth noting is that the components employed in iPhone X are much more expensive than what’s currently used in the iPhone SE — and so, even if Apple did somehow manage to create an iPhone SE 2/iPhone X hybrid like this, it would certainly cost much more than the current $ 349 starting price.

Netflix hid an Easter egg to the Upside Down in its ‘Stranger Things 2’ promo

Clever, Netflix. Very clever.

If you’re like me, you’re counting down the hours until Netflix’s “Stranger Things 2” launches on Friday, Oct. 27.

And, like me, you’ve also been checking out Netflix’s promotion of the show on its main site.

The ComicBook website was the first to spot this pretty sweet Easter egg (as far as I can see).

See that pulsing red orb on the right-hand side? Click on it …

… and you get taken to a Netflix Upside Down.

I won’t spoil what happens if you stay on there long enough. You’ll have to test it out for yourself.

Now back to the countdown.

The final ‘Stranger Things 2’ trailer is out and it’s terrifying

These kids can’t catch a break.

It’s fitting that on Friday the 13th (in October no less) Netflix has decided to drop the final trailer for “Stranger Things” season 2 on us. And be prepared. This season of the ’80s nostalgia series is going to be even spookier than the first.

The new trailer isn’t filled with the sweetness (at least to start) of the last, which launched at Comic Con earlier this year. In that one, our favorite monster-fighting kids get a hint of normal childhood by battling the fictional monsters in the video game Dragon’s Lair (as I child of the ’80s I can attest to this game’s awesomeness).

But all that is gone. The new trailer is filled with even bigger horrors than the first season and HOLD UP LOOK AT ELEVEN’S AMAZING HAIR!

Netflix has said it will generate more than 1,000 hours of “premium original programming” this year, up from 600 hours last year. The streaming service is expected to spend more than $ 6 billion on programming, more than Hulu, HBO, or Amazon.

The streaming giant has produced a growing number of hits, including “The Crown,” “House of Cards,” “Master of None,” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” many of which were nominated for or won Emmys this year.

“Stranger Things 2” will be available for streaming on October 27, just in time to get scared and binge watch for the Halloween season.
