  • Samsung's $700 Smart Monitor M8 borrows Apple's multi-colored iMac style

    I have previous series M5 32” monitor. I don’t think it is intended for computer monitor for professionals. As a monitor it is ok, however I use it as smart tv. Youtube and streaming services work great with Airplay support. I rarely use as monitor, 32 inch screen is amazing to use. However, I am not professional creator. Personally, I love it and bought one more for my parents. As a result, I don’t think this is a Apple Studio Display competitor. New series has new colors which I might have buy in the future for the same purposes.
  • Apple discontinues full-size HomePod, to focus on HomePod mini

    I wanted to buy two of them to use as stereo speakers with Apple TV. People were reporting that there was some issues with that use. They said sound levels was low, stereo sound does not work with some apps. Infuse and plex somehow got it worked. After release of hompod mini, an update is deployed. This stereo issue has been improved. For these kind of issues I wasn’t convinced to buy them. I wish Apple added some sort of sound in option other than airplay. May be like a lightning port. This way they could still make money. I mean lightning to hdmi, optical, aux in etc. Or work with standard bluetooth connection. I could connect them to my lg tv.
  • Video: Everything you need to know about the new AirPods before you buy

    Wireless charging of the case is a minor upgrade. For me charging airpods without case via iPhone would be a greater upgrade. I take my airpods without its case when I go for a walk. Mine used to work about 4 hours last year but now it works hardly 2 hours. For this situation, I wish airpods themselves would be able to charge via iPhone.
  • If you have an iPhone X, should you upgrade to the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max?

    I think many people will upgrade from iPhone X to iPhone XS Max. I think Apple thought about this last year. They introduced iPhone X with one size screen and two color options only, their plan was this all along. It is a brilliant marketing strategy I think. Speedwise there is not much of a difference. Also technology wise there seems not much of a difference either. Apple just intentionally keep the price bar high, it is just too expensive but it is business, they will (they should) sell tons of iPhones. iPhone 7 is still a great phone, refurbished one is less than 400 dollars, if people have budget problem they can go with iPhone 7 and 7 plus. Brilliant marketing Apple.
  • Microsoft pulls plug on Windows 10 Mobile, says userbase too small to support apps

    Since google is an advertisement compony and makes users as its product, Windows would be my first choice after iOS. I have used Windows mobile 8 for couple of months and I liked it very much. Of course it is not even close to iOS but it is a decent system and it doesn’t make you feel like you are a product. I gave that phone to my mom and after 3 years, it still works. It did not get slower and basic functions work such as email, internet browsing, photo, music and of course my mom’s only favorite app whatsapp. To be honest there should be alternatives to disgusting android. Blackberry and Microsoft couldn’t fight hard enough I think.
