Apple’s huge lead over Samsung in mobile facial recognition won’t be threatened anytime this year. Samsung is supposedly working on adding a 3D mapping facial recognition sensor to its next flagship smartphone, but according to a report from Asia, the supplier won’t have it ready until 2019. Israeli startup Mantis Vision is allegedly collaborating on […]
Samsung launched a smartphone with face-recognition ahead of Apple, but its efforts to date have been far from impressive as they are only 2D. Even the latest Samsung iteration can be fooled by both photos and videos, but that may be set to change …
One of the coolest gadgets I saw CES, according to myself, my friends, and my family, was the Pionears Wireless Earbuds ($ 69.99) from Origaudio. At first glance, it looks like an oversized Zippo lighter (about the size of a deck of playing cards), but it’s really a charging case for two remarkably tiny earbuds. And the lid snaps open and closed (thanks to magnets) just like a lighter, but for a much healthier use case! The storage case itself has a 4,400mAh battery; and what is really cool is that it slips into a charging dock with integrated A/C wall plugs, so no cables are needed.
The unit is sold in Silver or Silver with Black, but I think the all-silver version looks the best. The compact earbuds can be adorned with several sizes of ear tips. They only get three hours of battery life; but when it’s that fun whipping out your charger, maybe that’s part of the charm.
The earbuds list for $ 119.99, but as I write this, they are on sale for $ 69.99. Origaudio is generous with sales and discounts, so check its website often.
- Clever design
- Integrated A/C wall plugs
- Silver or Silver with Black models
- Remarkably compact earbuds
- Several ear tip sizes
- Three hours of battery life
If you don’t want to be a sheep with boring earbuds, check out the Pionears Wireless Earbuds from Origaudio.
Last year, Apple brought a display feature called True Tone to its flagship iPhone line-up for the first time, following the technology’s debut in 2016 with the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
True Tone works by adjusting the color temperature of a device’s screen to match the surrounding ambient light, so that images on the display appear more natural and are less apt to contribute to eyestrain.
If you stand in a dimly lit room illuminated by a table lamp, for instance, a True Tone display appears warmer and yellower, much like a piece of paper would in the same light. Stand outside on an overcast day, however, and the same display looks cooler and bluer, as would the same piece of paper.
In this article, we’ll run through how to quickly enable or disable True Tone from within Control Center as well as via the Settings app. We’ll also explain how to tweak your device’s color settings to help acclimatize you to True Tone’s warmer extremes, which some users find too intense under certain conditions.

The cellular-connected laptop for consumers has arrived
Have you ever tried using an iPhone? These devices can do a lot if you know how to use them properly. If you already have an iPhone or are contemplating purchasing one, the piece below is a great resource for information about its true capabilities.
You can upload plenty of music to your iphone and jam out with tunes all day long. Avoid taking both your music player and phone to the gym, and just take your iphone. You can upload hours of music on to your phone, and cycle different songs out with ease which can make it easy for you to enjoy your favorite tunes.
Find your phone fast with the brand new, free app called Find My iPhone. It lets you remotely access your phone to provide you with coordinates on a map, turn the volume up so the phone can be heard from under thick cushions, or lock the phone and wipe all data in case of theft.
Try to keep the applications that you use the most on the first page. This is important as you will want to reduce the amount of time that you search for your favorite used functions. Sort your most widely used functions in order from the most to least use on the first page for convenience.
Is your iPhone frozen? Hold down the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time. Wait until it gives you the option to shut it down. Swipe the screen to shut your phone down. Once it powers down, turn it back on. This will reset the phone and generally fixes any problem you may have with your freezing.
Use your iPhone as a workout tool. With an armband and one of the many great fitness apps available, you can use your iPhone’s GPS to track your runs, bike routes, walking paths and more. Many of these applications automatically sync your workout information with a website, allowing you to easily track your progress. They can also sync with your favorite social networks.
While you are using the Internet on your iPhone, phone calls are just one touch away. Suppose you are using the Internet to locate a pharmacy near your home. While on the Internet, find the number and your phone can call it. All you have to do to place a call is to tap the number displayed in the browser window.
To make your favorite website a little faster and a whole lot easier, set it as your homepage. Although you can’t do this as smoothly as you can in Safari on the Mac, you can access your preferred page easily with just one extra tap. Add the page to your bookmark’s list, and then make sure it is at the top of the list. That way, you are only a couple of taps away from your favorite page.
Certain iPhones can be set up to connect to Wi-Fi, although some setup is required. The benefits of the connectivity is obvious, because you can access the internet away from home with your iPhone. This a great advantage to business people because they can check their messages while they are away from their office.
Before putting your iPhone to sleep, press the home button. This ensures that all apps are turned off, and it saves you battery life in the process. If you simply put the phone to sleep without pressing home, you may have some apps running in the background and reduce your battery life.
For those who interact often on social-networking sites, the iPhone makes it easy to stay up to speed with them. It is simple to comment, download photos and connect with your friends. Many college students find having an iPhone is a convenient way to stay connected to the internet away from home.
If you accidentally drop your iPhone into some water, do not turn it on right away or you can permanently damage it. Dry the phone with a towel and sit it in a bowl of rice overnight. This will help draw out all of the water that may have gotten into hidden areas.
There are timers when your iPhone may have an issue with an application like any computer would. This can easily be solved by force quitting it. To do this on your phone, press and hold your Home button for about six seconds. This will cause it to quit the problematic application quickly.
There is a simple way for you to delete your emails on your iPhone, rather than going through them all one-by-one. When in your inbox, click on the edit button. Then, use your finger to check off the emails you want to get rid of and choose the delete option.
Check out all of your stocks and how the market is doing in the stocks section of your iPhone. This section allows you to look at how the Dow Jones is doing at the current time in addition to a timeline of its performance and different articles for quick access to the market.
Make sure your iPhone is using the latest updates. The iPhone is really like a mini-computer, so every now and then patches appear to fix security holes, bugs and issues with functionality. Keeping your operating system updated is especially important if you access or store sensitive information on your phone.
A great tip for using your iphone is to purchase some kind of app that will help you find restaurants near your location. There is actually an app available that will randomly bring up a restaurant according to what you put in such as mexican food, italian, or whatever you want.
If you want to save time while surfing the web on your iPhone, you do not have to put in the “http”, “www” or “.com”. All you need to do is put in the desired domain name. Many people do not know about this feature and yet, it can save seconds.
Now that you read the information above you likely have learned something about what an iPhone can do that you did not know before. Take what you have learned and go forward!
Nine years ago, when “Satoshi Nakamoto” released the research paper titled, “Bitcoin,” she/he/they laid the foundation for the cryptocurrency craze we’re experiencing today. Despite the spike in popularity of cryptocurrencies, not everybody is fond of them. People call cryptocurrencies with all sort of names, like “speculative bubble,” “ponzi schemes,” “get-rich-quick schemes,” and sometimes simply “fraud.” Most people are cryptocurrency skeptics because they question its intrinsic value, which is somewhat fair, but what exactly does intrinsic value mean? And should that affect how we view cryptocurrencies? What is value, anyway? It’s such a simple question that is extremely difficult to answer.…

Chinese officials recently showed off the latest tool in their already impressive surveillance arsenal: facial recognition eyeglasses. Each set is equipped with bleeding edge optics and advanced facial recognition algorithms capable of pinpointing a single fugitive in even the most crowded of places: like a train station or airport. Snap Inc.’s ‘Spectacles,’ these are not. The glasses automate the process of identifying passersby, in seconds and without unparalleled accuracy. When the wearer looks in someone’s direction, the attached camera takes precise measurements of the width and depth of a face before comparing it to a database of identified individuals. It’s…
