Ahead of third antitrust ruling, Google announces fresh tweaks to Android in Europe

Google is widely expected to be handed a third antitrust fine in Europe this week, with reports suggesting the European Commission’s decision in its long-running could land later today.

The ZTE Axon V doesn’t have a notch… It has a tab.

I’m not sure how I feel about the ZTE Axon V, but it sure is inventive as hell. For starters, it’s managed to crack the notch and camera punch hole problem and delivers on a complete bezel-less screen experience without moving parts… but its lack of a notch has led the front-facing camera to manifest somewhere else. This is the ZTE Axon V, and it’s the world’s first smartphone… with a TAB.Reminiscent of folders that have tabs in the side (to let you open to a particular category), or for the mor...

Is sharing caring? #OpenBlog19

Photo by Krzyboy2o on Wikimedia Commons This is a post for #OpenBlog19. I attended an event in Utrecht, in the Netherlands way back in 2007, at around the time that social media was emerging as a serious learning technology. Together for two days, we discussed how digital technologies and networks could support learning. The event was called 'Show that you Share' and focused on tools such as Creative Commons, personal learning environments and mobile phones as a means of creating, shari...

RED quietly removes all Hydrogen One smartphone modules from its website

After a pretty abysmal launch, the RED Hydrogen One had one possible saving grace that might help see it succeed and allow RED to redeem themselves in the eyes of their customers.

Work arounds

Photo by Jeshoots on Pexels In my two previous posts here and here I've been writing about how the use of smartphones and other personal devices and technologies in the workplace can have negative effects on concentration, memory, task completion and social interaction. It's not all bad news. There are many advantages of bringing personal devices into the workplace, especially around new learning opportunities. Yet the use of personal devices needs to be tempered against how they can im...

How do you design smartphones for teens?

There are some parents who believe in limiting their child’s access to sufficiently advanced tech. Technology empowers, but it also means a lot of things. You can lose your privacy, your data, end up on wrong parts of the internet, and just be exposed to something you’re not ready for. For teenagers, that can be a pretty damaging experience. Especially considering Facebook was actually caught paying teenagers to spy on them just a month ago. I don’t blame parents for wanting to be connected to t...

This concept Tesla Smartphone has an expanding conveyor-belt screen

As outrageous as it sounds, if this format is even remotely possible (and works well), it’s surely the format to beat. This the conceptual Tesla C1 by Jeffrey Lee. It’s not a folding phone… it’s a sliding phone. A sliding phone with a sliding flexible screen. Part of the screen faces the back when the phone’s collapsed, acting as a notifications zone, while the remaining majority of the phone lay on the front, ready to be used normally. However, if you’re in the mood for something more than just...

U.S. smart speaker owners grew 40 percent over 2018 to now reach 66.4 million – or 26.2 percent of the U.S. adult population – according to released this week, which detailed adoption patterns and device market share. The report also reconfirmed Amazon Echo’s lead, noting the Alexa-powered smart speaker grew to a 61 percent market share by the end of last year – well above Google Home’s 24 percent share.

Weapons of mass distraction

Photo by Steve Wheeler Humans were once untethered, free to wander the world and explore at will. Then came telecommunications, telephones, computers and the internet to transform the ways we could communicate across great distances. But such innovation also tethered people to specific geographical locations.The invention of the mobile phone liberated us to move freely again, but in doing so, we became tethered in a different, more subtle sense.

This foldable iPhone concept has the soul of a MacBook

Let’s ignore the fact that this conceptual iPhone XFold has the exact same format as the Samsung Galaxy Fold, because this who-did-it-first battle between iPhone and Samsung isn’t worth our time. It should be, however, more of a who-did-it-better battle. The Samsung Galaxy Fold is absolutely gorgeous, but the iPhone XFold looks like it would be a bigger commercial success… and that’s because the XFold’s design is instantly familiar.If you look at the iPhone X Fold’s OS, you see that it’s essenti...

Maybe we don’t need folding displays. Maybe we just need tactile keyboards…

Folding displays are innovation, but what positive impact do they bring to a smartphone? What does a larger screen achieve? Tablets are a dying tech category, and not many apps are optimized for a massive squarish display (Instagram still doesn’t exist for the iPad OS). The folding display only has two foreseeable benefits. Bigger screen for media (still strange, considering 16:9 media on a square screen means a waste of space), and bigger screen to facilitate multitasking.The folding displays a...
