Our office door unlocks through an app that connects via Bluetooth — we don’t use keys anymore. To get a taxi, we simply ask Google Home to book one without even needing to go out or press any buttons. Even refrigerators can now talk!
The tech tragedy of the 21st century aren’t exploding smartphones or those weird zen lawn cases; it’s the inescapable reality that after years and years of trying to make mobile phones smaller, the trend is now towards making smartphones bigger! All this is a disappointment to me and my small, dainty hands.
When you talk about phones costing less than $200, lots of compromises come to mind, like having a low-end camera or plasticky body. The Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime has none of that, and even goes beyond what you’d expect from a budget-friendly smartphone.
The Honor 6X isn’t an entirely new phone. Although it experienced an international launch earlier this month, it’s been around since its original unveiling in China last October. We’ve been using it since acquiring a unit at CES 2017; here’s my take on the midrange smartphone.
I get asked a lot about laptop recommendations, and while it’s easy to give an answer for notebooks above $400, anything below is tricky. So when Starmobile asked me to review its $150 Engage Aura, I happily obliged in order to deepen my knowledge of the budget-friendly segment.
I have an internet problem: I had my Sky Broadband disconnected because of consistently poor service, and PLDT hasn’t been active in processing my new DSL application. Desperate to get a reliable internet connection in the meantime, I turned to Globe.
New Year celebrations have come and gone, my dear millennials, and with that comes fitness resolutions which (historically) don’t even last as long as Kim Kardashian’s social media hiatus (Yes, Kim K. is back on Instagram and maybe it’s time you up your selfie game, too).
Make this year different. Drop that phone and go outside to exercise; lose those unwanted pounds and finally work on those dream abs. In 2017, the only thing you should be gaining are likes on your latest #Fitspiration IG posts!
