Last year was the first time that I left my iPhone for more than a month and switch to Android. I used the Galaxy S7 for around 5 Months until the iPhone 7 came out. I've always liked Android but until a couple years ago it just wasn't as good as iOS and when I say good I mean the apps available on the OS were not as good as those on iOS.

Switching from iPhone 7 to Galaxy S8


 

I believe 2017 is the first year that it doesn't really matter what phone you choose because all of them are going to be pretty much the same. The iPhone 8 will look and function very similarly to the Galaxy S8 and both devices have lots of features which end up accomplishing the same thing. I sold my iPhone 7 a couple of weeks ago in preparation for the Galaxy S8 because it is the best smartphone ever made. The combination of materials, features, software, and design of the phone make it the most comfortable smartphone I have held and it sports the most beautiful screen I have seen. The iPhone 8 will most like match all this but we are still months away from an announcement this means it's currently Samsung's turn to shine.


 

I ended up purchasing the Silver since I have had a black phone for the past couple of years and Samsung has given all the S8 colors black fronts which is perfect. If you have yet to see one in person, I highly reccomend going to a store and checking it out. This is what phones will look like for the next couple of years until the foldable displays become more affordable. I’ll be making some videos on the S8 this coming weekend so stay tuned for those!

Apple TV Review – The Best Media Player of 2015?

The 2015 Apple TV is the best product if you want to give some new life to your old (or new) tv. The interface is beautiful and very simple to navigate through. The controller is small yet packed with features and the box itself is simple and minimal. Some people aren’t even considering getting the Apple TV due to its lack of 4K support but as an owner of a 4K tv I can tell you that this isn’t as big of a deal as it has been made out to be. My 4K tv is able to upscale the Apple TV’s interface, games, and videos to the point where everything looks like it is 4K content. If Apple had said that this had 4K support then I would not have doubted it since everything just looks amazing on a 4K TV.

The full video review of the Apple TV can be seen below but if you just want a rundown of what makes this better to the other boxes in the market, I will tell you straight away that it’s the UI and Apps. The iOS App Store is a testament of how good Apple is at getting developers to get apps on their platforms and the tvOS store is no different. Apps are being added all the time and will keep being added which is completely different to the competition right now. The UI of the Apple TV is also very modern and simple which gives your tv a breath of fresh air and it also makes it easy for all of your family members to be able to use it.

Nike Has Finally Revealed Sneakers with Powered Laces!

It’s been nearly four years since Nike released the Air Mag which had no powered laces and were sold at auction for charity. As you probably know, today is the day that Marty McFly goes back to the future and puts on the sneakers in Back to the Future II.

 

The new Nike Air Mags look just like the shoes released in 2011 but not have a hidden mechanism that will tighten the laces once you insert your feet. The shoes will also have an option to do this manually just in case the battery dies out. Unfortunately the shoes don’t tighten themselves as smoothly nor as quickly as they do in the movie but it’s a step in the right direction.

 

 

These shoes will also be sold at auction in Spring 2016 and all proceeds will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s disease. We still don’t know how much they might cost but odds are that they will go from anywhere around $5,000 to $15,000 or even higher. The original auction raised $4.7 Million towards parkinson’s research and this should be no different. Hopefully this sparks more interest in the shoes and leads Nike to release a full consumer version of that shoe or just a shoe with powered laces.

Watch a Tesla Model S Drive Itself on a Street, Highway, and in Traffic!

Around a week ago Tesla pushed out an update to Model S owners which enabled the car to drive itself. The car is able to move forward, read speed limit signs, brake, and even change lanes. There are still many functions that requires the drivers attention but this is definitely a step in the right dirrection towards fully autonomous vehicles.

 

The YouTube channel DragTimes has a 16 minute video showing of the Tesla Model S in its full glory. It should give you an idea of how the autopilot works and why everyone is talking about it.
