Samsungs dual wireless charger hit the market at $119 alongside the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. It launched a newer version of the Wireless Charger Duo following the launch of the Galaxy S10, but its 2018 model is far less expensive. Another thing to note is that, while weve seen this charger go for less during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this is a good price to jump on.
With the exception of the Apple Watch, Samsungs dual wireless charger is able to charge any iPhone with Qi charging support, as…
One of the great things about enterprise chat applications beyond giving employees a common channel to communicate, is the ability to integrate with other enterprise applications. Today, Workplace, Facebook’s enterprise collaboration and communication application, and ServiceNow announced a new chatbot to make it easier for employees to navigate a company’s help desks inside Workplace Chat.

I recently found myself entranced by a series of type generators websites that allow you to create experimental animated type, then transform them into personal pieces of moving art. Its easy to lose track of time playing with all the settings. And if you get frustrated (and I honestly dont believe you can because theyre so fun) there are presets you can toggle to help.
The mastermind behind these sites is Kiel Mutschelknaus, a multidisciplinary artist whose work spans design, animation, typography, and recently, coding. Mutschelknaus, an educator at Maryland Institute College of Art in their graphic design department, has been working on more than 30 different generators, and hes published four online so far. He calls them Space…
My first impression of Battlefield Vs battle royale mode Firestorm wasnt the action it was the silence. I heard very little but the sound of my own boots on the snow, the reloading of my gun, and the breath of my soldier as my crosshairs were locked on a window across the road. As a longtime fan of the franchise, Ive become used to the constant sounds of gunfire, tanks, and objective callouts; the collapsing skyscrapers and the massive explosions of the V-1 rocket. Battlefield is beautiful chaos. When I dropped into Firestorm, however, it was still. At least for a few moments.
With millions of players dropping in and billions of dollars being…
How did Niantic happen? How did the company behind Pokémon GO and (soon) Harry Potter: Wizards Unite come to be? When anyone talks about Niantic, they generally mention that it’s “a Google spinout” and move on. As if that’s something that just happens every day. That dozens of people within a massive company come together, […]
Often, after a shared environment is provisioned, it's never
decommissioned and might run for weeks or months, with engineers applying
manual configuration changes throughout its lifetime. This risky approach
regularly causes deployment problems and other strange "environment" errors to
occur during development, test, and production cycles. This Agile DevOps
installment explains how to create ephemeral environments that are terminated
on a frequent basis. Once all environments are scripted and versioned, these
test environments are only used long enough to run through a suite of tests as
the software moves through a delivery pipeline on its way to
I will show you how we built an iMessage extension by writing a bridge for our React Native-based mobile app. This approach took our team around two weeks to explore and might save you significant time if you have a similar intention. This is part one out of two of the walkthrough.
When we set out to build an iMessage extension for Lisk Mobile using React Native, we immediately hit an exciting challenge. As it turns out, when it comes to third-party applications, Apple likes developers to play by their own rules. If a company wants to benefit from the tech giant’s operational systems and rich user base, it needs to be built using Apple’s own tools and programming language. iPhone’s iMessage is definitely worth this hassle. It has proven to be a big hit since its release in 2016. Within the first six months, iMessage has generated thousands of innovative in-messenger extensions, including those created by Airbnb and Dropbox. Late in 2018, Mark Zuckerberg admitted this feature is one of Facebook’s ‘biggest competitor by far.’ Since the release of Lisk Mobile during Lisk’s Berlin meetup in October 2018, our team has been busy implementing features such as Face ID Authentication, as well as developing blockchain-specific solutions. Identifying the opportunity to extend the iMessage option for our users, we got to work on our own integration.

It’s not uncommon to hear CEOs and business leaders talk about focusing on the consumer. But the only way to build for the consumer is to hear what they want, which can be a resource-intensive thing to retrieve. User Interviews, an ERA-backed company out of New York, is looking to lighten that load with a […]

This article is useful for experienced Angular developers. This article explains how to export Angular components from your project to bit and importing existing components from bit to your new project.
Angular is a component-based framework. Components are the main building blocks of the Angular framework. Using bit export/import we can avoid writing code for components, again and again, thus following DRY (Dont Repeat Yourself) principles.
Apples second-gen AirPods are here, and iFixit is already on the (wireless charging case) with its latest teardown, showing off almost the exact same technology that was inside the original AirPods along with the same nearly impossible to repair design. But this time, you can charge them wirelessly.
As expected, theres just a single charging coil in the case, so youll want to make sure that you actually place them facing the right way up when you do drop them on a wireless charger (the LED indicator should help with that, though).
On the plus side, Apple has apparently made some improvements to the design, adding a studier hinge to the case and a new, more water…

Within about ten minutes of meeting Built’s co-founder Noah Ready-Campbell, we’re steering an 80,000 pound construction excavator around what is basically his company’s back yard. He wants me to see what it’s like to drive one; how much skill and finesse […]
We’ve been in 2019 for a while. Although we’ve covered one or two smartphones in the last couple of months of the calendar year, the true “2019 flagship” phone season is really only starting now. Samsung’s Galaxy S10 is among the first releases in this new wave of phones, and for many markets it outright is the very first of a brand-new generation.
Samsung mixed things up this year by announcing the Galaxy S10 in San Francisco instead of the usual Mobile World Congress event. Though not unprecedented, the big reason here for the change in venues was to reflect Samsung’s close collaboration with US carriers such as Verizon on 5G and other matters. Indeed 5G has been pretty much the buzzword for the last year or more, and the last few months have been especially busy in this regard. To that end, there will be a 5G model of the S10, however with its limited availability it doesn’t have nearly the same mass-market appeal as the new mainstream variants of the Galaxy 10.
As we’re nearing this upcoming transition period in technology, the new Galaxy S10 models have instead needed to double-down on the fundamental aspects of the phones in order to entice consumers who are increasingly holding on to their smartphones for three years or more. Here the introduction of a new screen, powerful hardware, bigger batteries, as well as a brand new triple camera setup gives users quite a number of reasons to upgrade.
Today we’ll be reviewing the lead member of the Galaxy S10 family, the Galaxy S10+. And in true AnandTech tradition, we’re going to look at both variants of Samsung’s king of phones: the North American Snapdragon 855 model, as well as the European Exynos 9820 model. With Samsung using different SoCs for what are otherwise (nearly) identical phones, this gives us a unique opportunity to take an in-depth look at the two new processors and compare & contrast them under very similar circumstances. And of course, there’s a great deal to dig into with the Galaxy S10’s new screen and triple-module camera setup. This is going to be a long piece so prepare yourselves!
