iPhone X vs iPhone 8 vs iPhone 8 Plus

Apple launched their newest three phones on Tuesday and they range from somewhat affordable, to as much as your current mortgage payment. They start at the bottom end with the iPhone 8, followed by the iPhone 8 Plus. On the high end of the spectrum is the iPhone X (Ten). For some reason, Apple decided to release two generations of devices at the same time and skip the one in between. Make sense? No? Neither do the differences on how they compare. More details at the link below.

There's always a lot to consider after an iPhone event, and today we're looking at three new phones. The iPhone X is the new flagship, offering up an edge-to-edge screen and TrueDepth front camera for unlocking your device with Face ID. But those who were looking forward to something less dramatic along the lines of a 7S will be right at home with the 8 and 8 Plus.

Star Wars Season Pass is Free to Claim for a Limited Time

If you play Star Wars Battlefront without a season pass, you're only getting part of the experience. Granted, paying for a season pass for every game you play can get super expensive. The good news is that the Season Pass is now free - for a limited time - on all platforms. That's right, PC, Xbox One and PS4 are all free to get all the DLC.

The season pass includes the four multiplayer expansions that landed on Star Wars Battlefront, which are Outer Rim, Bespin, Death Star, and Rogue One: Scarif. The expansions add a total of 16 new maps, as well as various weapons, vehicles, new modes, and more.

Western Digital Acquires Toshiba Memory

Western Digital has been doing quite well - from a brand standpoint anyhow - and they are increasing their reach with their latest acquisition - Toshiba Memory. This should allow Western Digital to make their solid state products more effectively, efficiently and get products to market faster. Margins on their NAND products should be much better for the company.

A breaking report out of Japan this evening states that Western Digital has won the bidding process to take over a portion of Toshiba Memory. The two companies already work together in a joint venture to produce NAND flash memory, an arrangement that started with Toshiba and SanDisk. Western Digital acquired SanDisk in 2016 and inherited the memory manufacturing partnership.

New Mercedes-AMG Hybrid is Tech-Heavy

The new Mercedes-AMG car that was recently shown off in Frankfurt looks like a concept-car, but this beauty is a reality. It is powered by a miniscule 1.6L V6 hybrid engine that puts out more than a thousand horsepower and it takes this car over 217mph. It's a street legal Formula 1 car that will set you back $2.72 million USD. The cockpit is pretty incredible though and it does have AC - and a smartphone dock. So that's better than the Formula 1 sibling. Order yours while they last. Only 275 of them will be made.

Xiaomi Tackles the MacBook Pro

Xiaomi (pronounced show-me) is a huge manufacturer of Smartphones and over a year ago they branched out into the laptop market. They did quite well with their first generation, but they are back with a new machines that is aimed squarely at the MacBook Pro. They have a lot of performance available in their 8th-Gen Quad-Core Intel CPU, GeForce graphics and an SSD. That is nothing new for an Ultrabook, but what Xiaomi does is add a bunch of ports that we all want. They have an SD Card slot, two USB-C ports, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, a headphone jack and more.

Xiaomi's 1.95kg-heavy machine comes in three flavors: the 6,999 yuan (about $1,070) top model packs an i7-8550U chip with 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD; then there's a 6,399 yuan (about $980) model with an i7-8550U chip, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD; and finally there's a 5,599 yuan (about $860) base model packing the same RAM and SSD but with a lower-end i5-8250U processor.

Nintendo Continues to Game Demand

I'm sure when it comes to market research, there is a point that companies try and hit where short supply increases demand and therefore you sell everything you make - and quickly. Nintendo is perhaps the king of this behaviour and they continue to short the supply in order to increase demand. While it's all good and fine to have a lot of demand for your product, I can't help but think they could make more money if they actually produced the number of consoles, or classic consoles, that people want. Already, they are saying they won't be able to make enough Switch consoles for the holiday season. I say, RAMP UP PRODUCTION! Geez man. You've got months. It's not rocket science.

"Certainly the demand is there and the supply chain is there. Can we do more? It depends on our ability to make more," he added. "We don't want to have a consumer disappointed by not being able to get one for the holiday season. But managing that complex supply chain is a challenge." Oh no, it looks like we should be feeling bad for Nintendo because it has a hit on its hands. Quite frankly we do not have any sympathy for the firm and its hit console.

Myths and Facts About Superi Intelligent AI

There are some legitimate concerns about AI - some of which you've probably thought about, and probably a bunch that you haven't. For instance, if there comes a time when we let AI make larger decisions on things that align with our human directives, what happens when the AI determines that is not the best course of action? Do we vote, impose our opinions and re-write the program, or let the AI decide. Intelligence doesn't require consciousness according to the producer of the video below. That could complicate things. I'm glad people are putting thought into this issue as I hadn't considered some of the ramifications.

YouTube HDR is Available for More New Phones

HDR content has been available on a few of the flagship devices while YouTube has been a bit slower on the uptake. Now, there are more phones added to the YouTube HDR list - including the Pixel, LG V30, Sony Xperia XZ Premium and the Galaxy (and Note) S8 have the feature as well. This is good news if you want to watch HDR content at 1440p on your device and drain the battery even faster. To be honest, it's pretty awesome that a phone can rock HDR video so well.

Reddit users have had access to the update since yesterday at resolutions up to 1140p60, while SamMobile reports that the publication can only access 1080p60. On our office S8, we've seen 1440p60. Google tells us that the Pixel, LG V30, Sony Xperia XZ Premium have gotten the update as well. More than that, the search juggernaut is working to bring it to even more devices.

Social Media As a News Source

If you are one of the humans that get their news from social media, you're not alone - although you probably should be. Social media is perhaps the most unreliable, slanted, agenda-oriented source out there, and yet more than half of Americans over the age of 50 get at least some of their news from social networks. The number is climbing and shows that more people are thinking less. That's not good at all, but it is the way of the future. While LG says the future is friendly, I say that the future is slanted and scary that people are trusting Mark to deliver unbiased news.

Because of the vastly different audience sizes across major social media sites, there are two different ways to think about measuring change in news use on these platforms. One is to compare the share of each site’s users that get news on the site, while the second is to measure the total percentage of Americans that report seeing news on the site.

Galaxy Note 8 Breaks Pre-Sales Records

While you can't believe everything you read - especially pre-sale numbers from the company that is selling the device - Samsung still claims that the Note 8 pre-sales are doing very well, and breaking records for any Note device they have ever produced. There is a large demand for the Note series of devices as they offer something that no-one else does - or at least that no one else does well. Here's hoping they have all their hardware trouble behind them and that the launch goes smoothly.

Samsung did not specify exactly how many Note 8 preorders it has received so far, but judging by how popular Note 7s were last year before everything went down, it seems that little has deterred Note fans from upgrading — not even the price tag.
