Apple iPhone XR has a tall 6.1" LCD with a notch, single camera on the back - Dotemirates

Apple iPhone XR has a tall 6.1" LCD with a notch, single camera on the back

The iPhone XR is the last of its kind – it still uses an LCD screen. But it is a tall screen (19.5:9) so you get slightly more surface area than an iPhone 8 Plus, even when you account for the notch. Apple has a new name for this display - Liquid Retina. Name aside, the pixel density is the same as the iPhone 8 Retina display (326ppi), resolution is 822 x 1,1792px (so below 1080p). This LCD panel did gain the 120Hz touch sensing and wider color gamut of its AMOLED-based siblings. There’s another holdout from previous generations –...

Microsoft introduces AMP support in Bing mobile searches

Whether you're using Google or Bing for web searches, you can now benefit from fast load times with AMPs. Microsoft has supported Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) since 2016, but the feature was previously limited to the stand-alone Bing app only. With the new update, AMPs can now be loaded directly from Bing's mobile web search results.Browsers supporting the feature include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge.Google last week announced that it would relinquish some of its control over AMPs, allowing third parties more involvement in the project. The Internet search giant said the AMP Project would move to a “new governance...

This is hands down the best deal you can find on a refurbished iPhone 7

Countless market reports showed the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus impressively retaining their popularity on the heels of last year’s iPhone 8/8 Plus/X release, but with the hot new iPhone XS and XS Max up for pre-order, the (relatively) affordable XR right around the corner, and the 8 and 8 Plus available cheaper than before, all the excitement over 2016’s generation may have fizzled out.If you don’t feel that way, you’ll want to keep in mind Apple is still selling the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, starting at $449 and $569 respectively. The two are obviously even more reasonably priced...

The Asus ROG Phone could begin shipping in late October

Asus introduced the world to the ROG Phone way back in June. But over three months later, there is yet to be any official confirmation in regards to the device’s release date. If a new listing on the website of retailer GearBest is accurate, though, the official release date may have been revealed.According to the retailer, the ROG-branded gaming smartphone will begin shipping out between October 22 and October 24 when it comes to orders placed through its website. This would suggest that orders placed through Asus’ own website will begin shipping a bit sooner, probably on Friday, October 19....

Facebook Dating feature takes on Tinder in public trial run - what could go wrong?

Facebook had a number of things in the works, either publicly or reportedly, when the whole Cambridge Analytica data scandal blew up, some of which were halted in development as the risk of adding to the privacy controversy was deemed too major.But while it remains unclear if we’ll ever see the company’s latest voice assistant in action, on third-party products or a line of in-house smart speakers, that Facebook Dating feature that sounded like such a hard sell at first is very much a reality.Tinder may not need to worry just yet, as this competing product is only available in...

Facebook, Twitter must comply with Europe’s consumer rules or face sanctions, EU says

Facebook and Twitter face sanctions unless they comply with European consumer rules by the end of the year, the EU said as its regulators continue to their crackdown on U.S. social media giants over privacy concerns. Online platforms have come under fire in Europe because of their dominance and anti-competitive business practices, resulting in hefty fines handed down to some companies. Seven months after being told to bring their user terms in line with EU regulations, both Facebook and Twitter have yet to fully address all the issues, the European Commission said on Thursday. In contrast, Airbnb made the necessary...

Robotic skins could bring your stuffed toys to life

Scientists have developed an electronic skin that can turn everyday objects - from a stuffed animal to balls of crumpled paper - into robots. The robotic skins, developed by researchers at Yale University in the US, enable users to design their own robotic systems. The skins are made from elastic sheets embedded with sensors and actuators. Placed on a deformable object the skins animate these objects from their surfaces, according to a study published in the journal Science Robotics. The makeshift robots can perform different tasks depending on the properties of the soft objects and how the skins are applied....
