I’m so glad you did this review. We have an ancient (5+ years old?) Apple TV and can’t get myself to pay for a new one. Got a firestick and can’t stand the UI and it’s SO slow. Might try to pick one of these up.

Honestly, this is the first dual/folding screen that looks interesting to me.  But at $1,400 and no NFC does kind of stop me (I use NFC for my Yubikeys often).

I’d like to get my hands on one to play with for a few weeks, but I’m still not sure I totally understand the appeal at that cost.

This is largely what I’m looking for in a dual display phone. I want to run two apps simultaneously, not get a big, bendy screen. Or turn it sideways and get a keyboard with a screen above it. I think they’ve still got a ways to go before I plop down the money, but I hope this catches on.

On the hardware side, this has advantages and disadvantages to the LG V60 dual screen. BUT - it is the software side that Microsoft appears to be blazing some fantastic new ground. (And makes me dream of what might have been with Windows Phone. [sniff]) Read more

I dunno about pet, but it would make a hulluva cat toy. That video really set my cat off. Her ears went up, her tail dipped down, and she froze into full stalking mode. Read more

It’s funny that the shot of the hydrangea is sharper on the P40 only when you note the actual flower. When you look just past that to the leaves, the much larger sensor combined with a wide aperture leads to the leaves being quite soft. Read more

Skylake released in 2015. AMD was still pushing Bulldozer and Jaguar based chips that were way behind Intel. AMD had nothing in the way of higher end workstation/server chips worth mentioning. And after 2012's Piledriver and the abject failure of that entire line, AMD basically cancelled everything. Mobile version, Read more
