Apple says the modular Mac Pro won’t arrive until 2019, but it’s still listening

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


A little under a year ago, Apple tried to assuage everyone’s fears that it had given up on the Mac Pro for good. At the time, it said the device wouldn’t arrive until 2018 at the earliest, and gave us the beastly iMac Pro to whet our appetites in the meantime. Now the company has made it clear we won’t get our hands on the top-of-the-line, modular Mac Pro until 2019. The company recently invited TechCrunch back to its campus to discuss the new Mac Pro, and Apple’s strategy for creating the new device. The entire piece is worth a read if you’re…

Review: Moment’s modular lenses up your Pixel 2’s photography game… if you have a few hundred bucks lying around

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

The cameras on smartphones are getting ridiculously good — good to the point that most households don’t even own standalone cameras anymore. But given the dimensions that phone cameras are restricted to, they’re not as flexible as something like a mirrorless or DSLR with interchangeable lenses. That’s where Moment comes in. The company offers a small collection of lenses that can be individually purchased and attached to its Photo Cases, which are available for a variety of phones.

As bezels shrink, can modular phones make a comeback?

Essential Phone

I recently wrote up about Vivo’s concept phone, the Apex, and asked whether or not you want a pop-up camera in your phone. Vivo has an interesting idea, there’s no doubt about that, and definitely a unique way to tackle a situation where consumers are on the bezel-less bandwagon. And while the notch design, which Apple championed, has caught on with the smartphone market as a whole, that isn’t what every company is going to use.

But there is obviously still room for the bezels on smartphones to shrink, even on devices like the Galaxy S9 and the iPhone X. Whether or not these companies move in that direction, though, remains to be seen.

After all, Samsung and Apple might not want to build a phone that has a pop-out camera, especially if the public isn’t all that responsive to Vivo’s concept.

I think one of the issues, at least as far as a front-facing camera is concerned, is that selfies are oftentimes spur-of-the-moment type situations. “Oh, hey, let’s take a photo together” or something of that nature. Having to wait, even 0.8 seconds, for the camera to pop out might kill the moment. What’s great about the current implementation is that a selfie cam is right there, ready to go when you need it or want it.

I can’t help but wonder if a modular design future is something we’re going to see pop up again at some point in the future, as devices lose the bezels and start offering more access to the display. After the Vivo Apex was revealed, I saw someone say that a pop-out camera was a “tacky idea”, and that the idea was too silly to actually ever see the light of day in a real, consumer-level device.

I don’t know that I’d call the feature tacky, but having a camera pop out of the top of your phone does seem a bit silly. But, that being said, as I mentioned above I think it’s a unique way to look at a solution for offering as much screen real estate as possible.

So maybe this is where the modular idea can come in and actually find a way to surge ahead. It’s true that modular phones didn’t really take off like some companies had hoped, but being able to allocate all of the screen real estate to the display, and reduce those bezels to basically nothing, could leave some room for modular accessories –like different front-facing cameras– to rise to the top.

Maybe Essential is on to something after all with their Essential Phone and its modular design.

But, it still does tread into the same issue as the pop-out camera, in terms of having to wait to take a photo as you find the desired accessory. I’ve personally never really seen the appeal of having to carry around a ton of accessories for my phone, similar to a how a photographer might bring a camera bag with a plethora of options for their camera. The smartphone is meant to give me everything I need, and as quickly as possible.

I’m willing to keep some bezels on my smartphones to make sure of that. That’s an easy trade in my opinion.

What do you think? As bezels shrink on smartphones, would you consider a modular design future if it meant you could get as much screen real estate as possible? Or are you willing to keep some bezels in your life to make room for things like the front-facing camera? Let me know!

Land Rover Explore hands-on: Modular rugged phone with extra battery

Moog is bringing back a modular synth from 1969 for $35,000

Moog announced last week that it is bringing back one of its iconic synthesizers — the IIIp — for a limited reissue for $ 35,000. The company says only 40 units will be handcrafted, and each one will feature the original’s documentation, art, and circuit board files. In total, each IIIp will have 37 modules including ten 901-Series audio oscillators, the 984 4-channel Matrix Mixer, and the 905 Spring Reverb.

Originally released in the late 1960s, the Moog Synthesizer IIIp was the company’s first portable system, coming in roadworthy flight cases, and was used by artists like Isao Tomita and George Harrison. They were discontinued in 1973 but are still coveted, not only because of their limitless ability to be reconfigured, but for the…
