Story
Tagline
Tech pundit. Former editor at Engadget. I blog about mobile. I hack stuff. I'm a developer. I'm queer.
Introduction

Myriam Joire (tnkgrl) was born wearing combat boots and holding a keyboard; moments later she picked up a soldering iron. She's been stomping, typing and hacking ever since. After spending years being a code-monkey in the video game industry, she joined Engadget as Senior Mobile Editor and later Pebble as Chief Evangelist. Today she is VP of Developer Relations at CleverTap, and sometimes freelances as a product/media strategy consultant, and as a tech journalist for TWiT and other major publications. She's based in San Francisco.

Really liking the #Honor8 , but I wish +Huawei'd kept all the features from the ‪ #P9 's camera app. Missing so far:
- True monochrome mode (it's there, but as a filter that likely just flattens the colors)
- The awesome film emulation modes (vivid, etc...)
- Swipe up for manual mode (it's there, but as a separate, dedicated mode)
Anyway, watch my unboxing video :)

+Myriam Joire​ agree on averaging, hdr+ works great. But doesn't require an extra sensor. LG's night mode is another example.

Watching juan's review its clear that the p9 gets exposure right maybe even better than the iphone. Controls highlights better. F2.2 helps there. The followup to the p9 will be interesting

Combining sensors to make a photo exists already as many as 16

The #Honor8 is basically a #P9 for the US. The price sure looks right :)

In case you missed it, I wrote a little article on the +MINI blog about my experience during #MTTS2016 :)
Last month I was lucky (thanks MINI) to be invited to attend MINI TAKES THE STATES 2016 as a journalist. I wasn’t able to do the entire tour but managed to join the drive for eight days from Atlanta to Minneapolis. Along the way I learned a few things about MINI drivers, their cars, and the places we motored through.

Cool ! I've had the Meizu M1 Note for about a year now, and people keep asking if it's an iPhone 6C ..... And it is a very good phone too.
