Samsung Introduces the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge [Video]

During a press conference at MWC 2016 Samsung introduced the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Both devices are very similar to the S6 and S6 Edge but have improvements that immediately make the S7’s worth considering as your next phone purchase. The devices have improved ergonomics, expandable storage, and they are now back to being water resistant like the Galaxy S5. Check out this introduction video from Samsung which details all of the info of their two new devices:

 

 

Samsung Mobile is defying barriers once again with premium Galaxy smartphones that redefine the ways we imagine our technology. The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will make you rethink what a phone can do.

Design
Streamlined curves offer perfect grip and a slimmer feel without compromising a big immersive screen. It’s a powerhouse inside with expandable memory (SD-card slot), a Vulkan API for amazing gaming graphics, and a longer lasting battery. Take it in the rain, the shower, or the pool because it’s water resistant too.

Camera
Featuring a Dual Pixel 12MP phone camera with sub pixel technology found in professional cameras that activates just like your eyes for split-second autofocus. Shoot in the dark and own the night with larger pixels that capture more light for brighter photos.

Samsung Pay
Leave your wallet at home because Samsung Pay is now available virtually anywhere you can swipe or tap your card. It’s easy to use and secured by Knox Security.

Gear 360
Now you can truly break the boundaries of what a phone can do with the Gear 360 and Gear VR. Record your life with the 360 camera, preview it on the S7, and experience your memories like never before with the Gear VR headset.

Canon Announces the EOS-1D X Mark II, A 4K Capable Flagship DSLR

Last year Sony stole the spotlight with their Sony A7r II and A7s II but it seems that Canon and Nikon want to take some of the spotlight back this year. Canon has been rapidly loosing users as they switch to Sony’s mirrorless cameras but with their announcement of the EOS-1D X Mark II it looks like Canon is back on the game. This camera isn’t very consumer oriented since the body-only will retail for $6,000. The great thing is that this might lead to more of their consumer-grade DSLR’s getting 4K support. Here is a video from B&H detailing the new features of the 1D X Mark II:

 

Here is a full overview of the camera by Canon:

Immense power. Phenomenal speed. A remarkable combination of innovation and refinement. The new EOS-1D X Mark II camera is nothing but legendary every step of the way. Building on a heritage of sophisticated innovation, the EOS-1D X Mark II is blazingly fast. Up to 14 fps* (up to 16 fps* in Live View mode) can be captured at a burst rate of up to 170 RAWs with a CFast™ card, and an improved 61-point AF system helps deliver clean, sharp images quickly, even in dim light. This remarkable speed means faster recording too: 4K video can be recorded at up to 60 fps with smooth AF and strikingly clear detail. Combined with superb low-light performance thanks to its powerful sensor and expandable ISO range, the EOS-1D X Mark II performs brilliantly, swiftly and stunningly no matter when or where the photographer is shooting. From the stadium, safari or studio to virtually everywhere in between, the EOS-1D X Mark II maintains and enhances all the hallmarks of what Canon has to offer, marking a new page in the legacy of the EOS series of cameras.

Google Pays $12,000 to Man Who Owned Google.com Domain for 1 Minute

You may remember back in September of last year when a man named Sanmay Ved purchased the world’s most valuable domain name, Google.com, for $12. The former Google employee said he found the domain up for sale on the listings, and decided to try purchasing it just for fun. He didn’t think the transaction would go through, but much to Ved’s surprise, he was able to charge his card the $12 and own the domain name… for one minute.

Of course, Google was quick to notice something wasn’t quite right when they all of a sudden didn’t own their domain name anymore and cancelled the transaction just after it was originally created. However, as payment for Ved noticing the error, Google told Ved they’d send him a payment for $6,006.13. Why such a specific amount? Well, if you look closely, you can see that 600613 is GOOGLE in numbers (or at least as close to it as you can get).

Ved immediately chose to donate the money to a charity, and when Google found this out, they doubled the payment to $12,012.26. The money was donated to the charity Art of Living India Foundation, a non-profit that runs schools in areas in India that are high in poverty for free.

Google has been known to pay their users for errors found in Google’s system, including over $35,000 for a security researcher working on checking Android for problems. So, if you happen to run across a security issue with Google, be sure to let them know, as you may get some cold hard cash for your Internet stumbling!

Turn any Picture into a Live Wallpaper on your iPhone 6s

If you have an iPhone 6s then you probably know about Live Photos which are photos that you can tap and hold on to see moments before and after the picture was captured. The cool thing about live photos is that they can be set as a wallpaper on the lock screen and still have the touch functionality. But what happens when you want to add some motion to your pictures that aren’t live photos? This is where the iOS App LivePapers comes in, it allows you to take a picture or import any picture and add a really cool 3D Touch effect to them. Here is a video review of the app which is available in the App Store for $1.99…

sProjector Promises 1080p Full HD at 1000 Lumens Projection in Small Package

Projectors seem to be becoming much more popular, with pico projectors popping up all over, and home theater projectors becoming quite a bit more affordable. Among all of this buzz is a project on IndieGoGo.com called the sProjector. The sProjector is trying to combine all of the best of home theater projectors and pico projectors into one small, neat, and powerful package.

sProjector 2The sProjector comes in at just 150 grams, or just 1/3 of a pound at a size of 70mm x 130mm x 15mm, or 2.75in x 5.1in x 0.6in, which is about the size of an average hand. With these physical specifications, this projector would be considered a pico projector.

However, where we were surprised was with the fact that the sProjector boasts a high-resolution display of 1080p, with a very bright (for the size) 1000 lumens. For comparison, the Celluon PicoPro, a similarly-sized projector, can only produce a 720p image at 32 lumens. And a larger pico projector, the AAXA P300, can only produce a 720p image at 400 lumens.

Additional features of the sProjector include its 5-hour battery life, lack of a noisy fan (without overheating), and low price of $249.99, while other less-featured picos cost anywhere from $250-$400. Plus, the company is including a remote and TV dongle with the projector, which can be plugged into sProjector to tune into TV signals without the need for an Internet connection.

sProjector 3Now, let’s talk connections, because this thing doesn’t lack in that area either! The sProjector comes equipped with a mini-HDMI port (adapter for full HDMI included), USB port, microUSB port, 3.5mm port, Bluetooth, and WiFI 802.11 b/g/n. With these connections, you can wirelessly mirror your device through Miracast, plug in a laptop or Chromecast, or stream directly over WiFi through the use of the projector’s UI, which runs on a customized Android Lollipop OS.

The sProjector can be purchased in white, black, or gold, and it is set to ship later this month. The IndieGoGo campaign was incredibly successful, hitting over 5000% of the initial goal, totaling over half a million dollars.

So, this thing has to be fake, right? Well, the promo video and the crazy amount of features on the projector certainly made it seem like that was the case. However, the company has been putting out updates and showing their progress, with recent videos (found below) showcasing the projector actually working, convincing me to believe it may just be real!

If the sProjector is real, then Silver Star, the company behind sProjector, has just made a major breakthrough in the pico projector market, and I’ll be very excited to see it!
