Nothing is slowing down Sony

Sony is soon shutting down the Playstation Vue, but it is not slowing down in other areas. What would attribute to PS4's popularity even with the Switch having a better record in a similar lifespan? #PS4 #gaming #playstation #videogames #gamer

Does the Galaxy Fold require more time>?

Everyone expected that Samsung was going to revamp the Galaxy Fold and make it the foldable smartphone of choice. It seems like there is more work to be done here.

Already thinking of a pre-order?

It seems that more smartphone companies are getting rid of the headphone jack, and Samsung is slowly following this route. Is the Chinese company emulating what Apple started doing in 2019?

Your ultimate solution for impromptu/scheduled meetings

We all love an all-in-one solution and that is what this device exactly looks to achieve. I love the use of Dolby Audio Premium Speakers and the 360-degree dual microphones. Overall, we get an easy set up experience.

The best mirrorless camera so far?

If you talk to any photographer about their camera of choice, what often stands out is their preference for a certain brand. Panasonic cameras are not as popular as their Nikon and Canon counterparts but surely, this model has earned its place. Do you agree?

Are gaming laptops getting better?

This isn't close to anything most of us have seen before and without doubt, any serious gamer will be amazed at how much this device can do. Gaming laptops are definitely advancing each day.

TV improvements happen rapidly

Would you sell your current TV in order to purchase a newer model? Upgrades and advancements in technology tend to happen so fast and it can be hard to keep up. It would be much easier if changes in technology were incorporated in existing TV models.

Huawei keeps going, despite the bad publicity

Everyone is talking about 5G in 2019, and the sooner we get this technology rolled out, the better for all of us. It is encouraging to see this company still doing flagships, despite constantly being in the news for all the wrong reasons.

Calling back a private number

I am always very paranoid about callers that mask their numbers and most times, I never answer such calls. Which of the methods listed in the article actually work for you?

Is independent regulation the way to go?

It almost seemed that Facebook would not be in the news for all the bad reasons anymore but then the issue around data privacy may not go away just yet. Is independent regulation the way to go then?

A long battery life

It is never advisable to charge the laptop while it is in use because it tends to heat up. Either way, a long battery life makes a laptop very reliable. Do the double-cell battery laptops have an advantage over the rest?

Wrong business strategy?

Tim Cook, the Apple CEO, attributes the weak iPhone sales to a discounted battery upgrade program that enabled most users to replace their batteries, rather than purchase new phones. Will we see better results this year? Perhaps time will tell.
