Coros Omni smart cycling helmet hands-on: Protection, music, and safety

While wandering through the Showstoppers hall at CES in January, I stumbled across the Coros booth because I saw a bike helmet and GPS watch being displayed. I cycle to work and the fact that the helmet could initiate a text to my wife if I crashed was a compelling feature. A couple of weeks ago, Coros sent me its ... Read More »

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 gets Disney AR Emojis at launch

I wasn’t alone in suggesting that Samsung’s Animoji competitors were, well, creepy.

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 deserves better than Bixby

Bixby is, by far, the most frustrating part of the S9. It’s true, of course, that no voice assistant is perfect, but a full year after Samsung’s smart assistant debuted on the Galaxy S8, it still feels unfinished. Of course, the company’s made some significant progress, and a slew of artificial intelligence startup acquisitions point to an offering that’s going ... Read More »

Each year we look to Samsung’s Galaxy S release as the smartphone that will be purchased by the masses and it is clear that the Galaxy S9 Plus will be one of the best smartphones of 2018. It may be an evolution of the successful Galaxy S8 Plus, but it improves in areas that fans specifically requested, proving that Samsung ... Read More »

Samsung’s AR Emoji taps creepy avatars and Disney characters to compete with Animoji

We’ve known for a while that Samsung’s been planning an Animoji competitor for its latest handset. Now that we’ve actually seen (the admittedly clunkily named) AR Emoji in action, we can testify to the fact that it’s some combination of compelling and creepy. That last part first. Like the iPhone X, the Galaxy S9 takes advantage of its on-board face ... Read More »
