  • A lot of phone makers these days tend to redesign their phones for the sake of doing so. There's no sense of consistency and more often than not, these changes are just for the sake of change, instead of providing any real benefit to the end user. The Honor 8 Pro, on the other hand, maintains the impeccable design language that is associated with Honor devices.The first thing you notice is the big, bright, and beautiful 5.7-inch screen. You aren't met with obtrusive bezels to hamper the experience and there aren't any physical buttons on the front either. Minimalist initial impression aside, holding the Honor 8 Pro exudes its sturdy, powerful build quality thanks to the smooth metal plate on the back. Unlike most phones with a protruding camera, the one on this smartphone sits flush. The only indentation is a necessary one - for the fingerprint scanner.The focus on minimalism and sophistication extends to the full metal body. It's finely crafted with attention to ..

  • Apple's iPhone may be ready for its next big act - as a springboard into "augmented reality," a technology that projects life-like images into real-world settings viewed through a screen.If you've heard about AR at all, it's most likely because you've encountered "Pokemon Go," in which players wander around neighborhoods trying to capture monsters only they can see on their phones. AR is also making its way into education and some industrial applications, such as product assembly and warehouse inventory management.Now Apple is hoping to transform the technology from a geeky sideshow into a mass-market phenomenon. It's embedding AR-ready technology into its iPhones later this year, potentially setting the stage for a rush of new apps that blur the line between reality and digital representation in new and imaginative ways."This is one of those huge things that we'll look back at and marvel on the start of it," Apple CEO Tim Cook told analysts during a Tu..

  • The use of cartoonish situations in ads is no new phenomena. You don't use standard pickup trucks to tow airliners, and you can't outrun a jet fighter with a turbocharged car, no matter what The Fast and the Furious shows, and you won't see Real People™ mistake Chevys for cars further upmarket. Subaru has been known for decades for its strange ads, which have recently gone in the direction of driving dogs. Now, it's decided that the best way to sell their WRX sports sedan to those digital Millennials is by replicating a nightmare of a Mario Kart track on which to test its car.Today's installment of automotive tests that we can't imagine becoming industry standards comes courtesy of Subaru Canada, who decided the best way to show off acceleration in slippery conditions was to use everyone's favorite tired slapstick joke—the banana peel.
