Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Wearable tech may not be doing so well these days, with companies like Motorola pulling out of the smartwatch game and Google Glass not having the greatest reputation with the public, but that doesn't mean everyone's giving up on it. Ubiquiti has debuted the FrontRow, a wearable camera with a round display that enables the "effortless capture and sharing of life's experiences." Oh, and it's $400.

The LG V30 camera will have an f/1.6 aperture, the largest ever in a smartphone

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

Aperture is one of those specs that only seems to have been talked about seriously in the last few years. In fact, until relatively recently I didn't really know what it meant. I now realize how important it is, as it relates how much light a camera lens lets in, so the bigger the aperture the better your photos will generally be, especially in low light conditions. The Samsung Galaxy S8 currently has the biggest aperture of any smartphone camera, f/1.7, but LG is about to improve on that.

There have been deals on the Gear 360 before, but this is the lowest price we've ever seen.

Yesterday's update to Allo came with announcements that it now supports reactions (basically "likes") and that the doomed blobmoji are to be kept on life support in the form of a sticker pack. As meager an update as it might seem at first glance, it turns out that there are several other new features in this release. On top of that, a teardown shows quite a bit is in the works.

You may recall that Nokia partnered with Zeiss years ago to develop its 'PureView' camera technology used on phones like the Nokia 808 and Lumia 1020.
