It’s Time to Demand More of Your Smartphone – and I Don’t Just Mean More Pixels

The following is a guest contributed post by Greg Wester, SVP, Marketing & Business Development, Mobile Posse As the dust settles on this year’s Mobile World Congress, and we process the latest slew of smartphone launches – none of which promise anything too exciting – I have to think about the evolution of the mobile device and how it’s stagnated.

Apple said to launch low-priced HomePod: KGI

Apple's HomePod needs no introduction, it generated huge buzz prior to its launch, but good things end there. Post the rollout of the smart speaker, the latest Apple product's sales have started declining every passing day. According to the KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, HomePod shipments "could be far below market expectations. Kuo says that despite market expectations of 5-10 million units in 2018 fiscal year, he forecasts only 2-2.5 million units are possible. He further states that ...

In defense of the HomePod

My HomePod, Google Home and Amazon Echo all live within about 15 feet of each other in my apartment. This is as much a testament to my obsession with smart home crap as it is to my inability to buy into a single tech giant’s hardware ecosystem. I’ve gone all-in with each assistant at various times but now my entire connected life is run through a series of commands that are held together by specific intonations, exact phrasing and speaking volumes of which I alone fully grasp. I solely hold t...

Apple HomePod Sales Struggle, Fall Way Behind Amazon Echo

The HomePod has not delivered the sonic boom Apple had hoped for so far. Apple's new $329 home speaker had strong pre-orders when it was launched Feb. 9, but it has petered out in the increasingly competitive home speaker market since, Bloomberg reported Wednesday. Three weeks after its debut, the HomePod, at its nadir, captured about 4 percent of the weekly sales of smart home speakers. Inventory is rising in Apple stores, and Apple cut back on orders and lowered sales forecasts, according to ...

How artificial intelligence will take over the supermarket produce aisles

Artificial intelligence is about more than asking Alexa or Siri to turn on the lights at home and add a reminder to the calendar about getting some milk at the store later in the afternoon. The true power of AI and machine learning is how it can democratize expertise, lowering the barriers to entry for tasks that once could only be performed by a small group of specialists. The result, one day, will be that your self-driving car drops you off at the supermarket, where you will find higher-qualit...

2018 Ford Expedition Max Limited Interior Review

So far, the redesigned 2018 Ford Expedition has impressed us in many ways. In a five-way full-size SUV comparison, the Expedition walked away with the victory. “Spacious, smart, comfortable, quick, and efficient, the Expedition does it all well,” we concluded. “On-road, off-road, towing, you name it—this is the best in class.” We were just as pleased with the Expedition during its First Test review. “The 2018 Ford Expedition’s blend of performance (both on- and off-road), comfort, utility, and t...

If you miss the headphone jack, this is for you

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love the headphone jack. Literally the only con with my current Pixel 2 is the lack of the jack, and there have been instances (enough to piss me off) where I’ve wanted to listen to music and charge my phone at the same time, but alas. You can’t truly have everything, can you?Pioneer thinks you can (if you’re an iPhone user that is). The Rayz Plus earphone set makes a great case for using wired headphones in this jack-less world. Touted as the only earphone...

These carabiner clips are made from a single titanium piece

It took Jeb Cheng quite a bit of trial and error (as you can see here), but after dozens of prototypes, he ultimately arrived at the perfect design for a single-piece carabiner made from titanium. A series of slanted cuts, spaced apart to provide a balance between flexibility and rigidity without breaking apart, are placed in the arm of the carabiner. A little pressure allows it to slide backwards (the cuts only give it flexibility in a single direction), giving you enough space to slip your key...

Voice Assistants Six+ Years In

We have many voice assistants in our lives. I have Google Assistant on my phone. It is great. The Gotham Gal has Siri on her phone. It is OK. We have Amazon Alexa and Google Home in our apartment. We have Siri on our AppleTV/Siri Remote. We can talk to our car. But the honest truth is we rarely use any of them. The one we use most is the Siri Remote when using AppleTV because it is by far the best way to control that device. It is not an issue of the quality of the voice recognition on these ser...

This Strange Headset Lets You Interact with Digital Devices Simply By Reading Your Mind

Researchers at MIT have developed a headset that can read the words you’re picturing in your mind so that you can interact with digital devices and virtual assistants, like Siri and Alexa, without actually speaking. When you think about saying a word, your brain sends signals to your face muscles to prepare them for the upcoming vocalization. Electrodes in the headset track these neuromuscular signals in the jaw and face. They are then deciphered by a machine-learning system—which has been ta...
