Apple calls A12 Bionic chip ‘the smartest and most powerful chip ever in a smartphone’

Apple has unveiled its latest chip powering the newest batch of iPhones: the A12 Bionic. The company says it’s the industry’s first ever seven-nanometer chip and Phil Schiller, on stage in Cupertino, introduced it as the “the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone.” It contains a six-core CPU (made up of two “performance” cores and four “efficiency” cores), a four-core GPU (which is up to 50 percent faster than A11), and an updated version of the Neural Engine, a special part of the chip designed to handle AI tasks. The A11 had a two-core Neural Engine, but the A12...

These hyper-realistic masks are being used to train facial recognition tech

A small company in Japan that makes hyper-realistic face masks has found popularity within the tech industry, as reported by Reuters.

Apple’s new holiday ad is a heartwarming, Pixar-inspired animated short

Apple’s holiday commercials are an annual tradition, designed to evoke the strongest of emotions in those who watch the lengthy ads play out. This year’s commercial manages to accomplish that feat, but it looks a little different: it’s fully animated. The commercial feels more like a Disney Pixar short, or a Coca-Cola ad than it does a traditional Apple commercial. There isn’t too much product placement from the company save for a MacBook covered in personalized stickers that appears from time to time over the course of two-and-a-half minutes. “Share Your Gifts” finds its heart not in Apple’s MacBook line,...

Smoke from California's wildfires is drifting across the US to New York — and it's making pretty sunsets

An airplane flies past the sun during a California wildfire in Yosemite National Park on July 15, 2018. California's recent wildfires have killed at least 82 people. Nearly 700 others are still missing. Smoke from the blazes is billowing high into the atmosphere and drifting across the US. California's smoky haze has created "smokestorm" conditions, but fine particles have spread as far as New York City. The hazy smoke has changed the appearance of sunsets and sunrises, making them more orange in color. The recent scourge of wildfires in California have claimed the lives of at least 82 people, and...

The triple selfie camera is near: Meizu phone visits TENAA

Triple camera phones are starting to become commonplace, but it’s always the rear camera. What if you want a triple selfie camera? Then Meitu has the phone for you (coming soon, this info is courtesy of TENAA). Okay, the Honor Magic 2 technically has a triple camera, but two of those are 2MP depth sensors. Anyway, you are forgiven if you haven't heard of Meitu, but you’ll start hearing of the brand more often. Yesterday Xiaomi announced that it is taking over the hardware side of the selfie-focused brand. Meitu itself will continue to work on the camera software. The...
