    Samsung's comeback; buyer beware

    Life, James Hein, Published on 30/08/2017

    » I have been using the Samsung Galaxy S8+ for some time now and so far, no complaints. If you want to use features like the Edge screen, fingerprint or retina security etc, you will need to do some setting up. The camera is excellent, as is the screen. Response is smooth and the battery life does me all day and then some depending on what I am doing. Connectivity is great and the interface is easy to use. My biggest complaint is finding the right match for a screen protector and a case due to the curved screen. Another is the difficulty in finding a way to give root access but that won't be an issue for most users. The new form factor means it fits into the hand nicely even for the larger model. So, far I have no hesitation in recommending this phone.

    Apple struggles to make a connection

    Life, James Hein, Published on 22/03/2017

    » There is a rumour that Apple could be replacing its Lightning Port on the 10th-anniversary iPhone with the popular USB-C alternative. I don't believe it. USB-C is too popular, and Apple has a habit of going its own way with connectors and other items. Apple has long been anti-standards when it comes to their devices, and, while it would be a good thing, they have invested too much in their proprietary Lightning connectors to let them go. So even if they did adopt USB-C it would be an Apple-only version, requiring Apple-specific cables and chargers. Sure, Apple could come up with a Lightning-to-USB cable of some kind, but that would be too easy.

    » I have been quite happy with the 13-inch MacBook Pro I bought about 18 months ago. With its i5 processor, I had expected lower performance compared to my 15-inch MacBook Pro that had the i7 processor, but the 16GB RAM and Solid State Drive (SSD) made up for that — it was faster in use.

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 24/02/2015

    » A picture of a mobile phone's portable battery — burned, with half of its body exploded — was shared on Pantip earlier this month. In the thread, user SnowGlobe recounted how he charged his iPhone 5s with his portable battery, commonly referred to as a power bank, before going to bed, only to discover smoke and sparks coming out from it in the middle of the night. The battery later exploded, fortunately harming no one.

    Adding stylus to the iPad

    Life, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 25/02/2015

    » When Steve Jobs was CEO of Apple he was often right, but there were times when he was wrong. At the 2007 introduction of the iPhone, he was dismissive of the stylus used with many phones. He also later dismissed the idea of a smaller tablet computer, although this may have been to put some off the scent. Jobs said that the finger was the best pointing device for touch-screen input.
