What I didn't mention in the review: you need to make sure this camera sees your face in time to say "oh, Chris doesn't want to be recorded" when you sneak into the kitchen naked to get a snack in the middle of the night.

If a smart home is truly smart, it should know who’s inside it. That’s the argument Netatmo makes with its new Welcome camera, promising Dropcam-style streaming

So you missed the #OnePlus #Cardboard giveaway, never fear...

It seemed too good to be true: Google's coveted Cardboard virtual reality headset at just a fraction of the price. Unfortunately, if you didn't jump on OnePlus'

Today's deep question... what do you think of the snout?

#scion   #cars   #mazda  
Scion has decided the 18-35 demographic it’s desperate to attract to is in need of an aspirational sports sedan, and the 2016 Scion iA is the result. Mouth of a

Mighty intrigued by this from +Olympus
You’d be forgiven if, after taking a quick glance at Olympus' new Air A01 doohickey, you dismissed it as a lens of some sort. In fact it’s more, much more.

Me too! I have an Olympus Camera, and they just sent me a link to this today.

Personally, I think it's the foveated rendering that caught Samsung's eye on this. Driving a VR headset from a smartphone GPU rather than a gaming PC has to have some appeal for them.

Samsung may have its own virtual reality tech, but that hasn't stopped it from investing in eye-tracking headset startup FOVE. The head-worn display has already

#PSA please don't pull lithium ion batteries apart while wearing V for Vendetta masks and screeching about privacy violations. You'll only hurt yourself.
 
Hahaha, oh man. There's viral videos going around on Facebook of people pulling some circuitry off their Samsung phone batteries that are supposedly recording all your photos and videos and sending them to The Man. Several of the people in my Facebook friends list have commented about finding this on their phones and removing it.

Spoiler: it's the NFC antenna thing on the battery

Is this the straw that breaks #reddit 's back, or are site mods over-reacting?  
All is not well in Reddit land, with the surprise ousting of a moderator prompting some of the most popular forums to disappear themselves from public view. The

I will never knowingly turn down the opportunity to drive +TOYOTA's i-ROAD, but this time I got mad 
"You're not going to topple over," I overhear a patient Toyota rep explaining to a nervous i-ROAD test-driver, "just have fun." Two minutes later, that same

Still love that +Chevrolet Bolt EV concept orange.
Chevrolet may want to be more than just “competitive” with its auto rivals, but when it comes to taking inspiration nothing is off the table, including Apple,

Amazon's Echo seemed like a gimmick initially, but we shouldn't have doubted that Bezos & Co. had big plans for the voice-controlled speaker. 

Now, not only will developers get to integrate their services with Echo - so you could ask your bank for your balance, perhaps - but third-party devices can embed Alexa, Amazon's AI, into their gadgets. Think Alexa in the car, or baked into self-service machines at the movie theater, or in your microwave even.

Amazon's Echo may have seemed like a gimmick, but the retail behemoth has kicked the digital assistant into overdrive by throwing it open to developers.

Story
Tagline
Writer, tech-lover & glasses-wearing cynic
Introduction
Tech writer who fell into online journalism by mistake. Loves coffee, gadgets, and sarcasm.

Android and Apple-using, Windows Phone apologizing, webOS-reminsicing multi-platform lover who'd rather use the tools that work best for the job than cling to a single brand for loyalty's sake. Current obsession is augmented/mediated reality and wearables, along with home automation, robotics, and the comically named "internet of things". Sucker for slick hardware with flashing lights and buttons.

Google+ is swell for its conversation potential and the generally high quality of discussion over here. Expect the occasional food post, funny video, and (passive) enjoyment of whimsical cat photos.
