APPLE could create a "completely wireless" iPhone with no charging ports or headphone jacks. That's according to a top industry expert who claims to have insider knowledge of Apple's plans. Ming-Chi Kuo is a long-time Apple analyst who has correctly predicted most of the firm's announcements to date. According to Kuo, Apple will release a brand new iPhone model without a Lightning port. This handset is tipped to land in 2021, and would potentially be called "iPhone 13". Kuo says that the handset would "provide the completely wireless experience".That means it wouldn't have any charging ports or headphone jacks to speak of. Apple abandoned headphone jacks way back in 2016 with the iPhone 7. The move proved controversial at the time, but the rise of wireless earbuds and Lightning adapters for headphones softened the blow. Apple also sells its own wireless AirPods and AirPods Pro, which are also extremely popular.Removing the Lightning port would mean iPhone owners are forced to go … [Read more...] about New iPhone could have ZERO charging ports or headphone jack for first time ever

Long gone are the days when Tetris clones, Farmville knock-offs, and Pac-Man lookalikes populated much of Android’s burgeoning Google Play store. Now, Google’s operating system boasts a diverse games library that rivals that of some home consoles. Geometry Wars 3, Minecraft, Fortnite, and remastered titles from the Grand Theft Auto collections are the cream of the current mix’s crop — a list that seems to grow longer every day. But if you game on your phone, you may need one of the best Android game controllers. Not all titles work equally well with touchscreens. Few triple-A Android games actually require third-party peripherals, but remastered titles like Tomb Raider and Geometry Wars 3 — which were designed with a controller in mind — respond much better to physical buttons. As anyone who has roamed the streets of Vice City or the hallways of Croft Manor can tell you, analog joysticks, D-pads, buttons, and triggers deliver infinitely more … [Read more...] about Get your game on with the best controllers for Android smartphones
Elizabeth Warren was walking around Milwaukee a week and a half ago, listening to a community activist and a 22-year-old whose parents are undocumented immigrants. They told her the history of bilingual education in the neighborhood around Walker Square Park, and how the blocks have changed over the years. “Talk to me about housing,” Warren said. “Where are the teachers drawn from?” The group walked past a sign for the oldest Latino-advocacy agency in the city, and a gentrification signpost: a store called Antiques Addict.Warren was in Wisconsin to speak at a Latino political conference. She used the day to release her immigration plan, the latest in a stream of plans proposing how to revamp the system, in ways that go far beyond what Washington wisdom deems possible. The neighborhood walk felt as if Warren’s campaign was merely banking B-roll footage for future ads, while a bunch of reporters tripped over curbs and fire hydrants watching the candidate … [Read more...] about Elizabeth Warren Has Momentum.

Previous Next 1 of 8 Smartphones are great, but they can be awfully easy to break. A tumble onto concrete or a slip off the table will often lead to chips, cracks, and undesirable dings. If you work in construction, the outdoors, or another harsh environment, you may want something a little more robust than a thin glass sandwich. The rise of the rugged category in phones has been led by Cat, but up until now you had to buy them online. After striking a partnership with Sprint, and with a Verizon deal in the works, the Cat S48c is the first rugged Cat phone to appear in U.S. stores. The Caterpillar brand is actually licensed to British phone makers, the Bullitt Group, and we reviewed its flagship Cat S61 last year. That phone boasts thermal imaging, air quality monitoring, and a host of other tools, not to mention a whopping price tag, but the Cat S48c is a much simpler, and more affordable prospect at around $500. We took it for a test drive to see how it … [Read more...] about The Cat S48c is the phone for construction workers, or the clumsy
