The new iPhone 12 generation of devices mark a new design restart for Apple, moving away from the design that had been started with the iPhone X in late 2017. Re-gaining the flat side-frame look that was originally found in past iPhone generations of the 4, 4S, 5 & 5S series, Apple is making the old new again.
The new iPhone 12 series is also Apple’s widest range release ever, with a total of four new iPhones: the iPhone 12 mini, a new compact form-factor at the lower range, the iPhone 12, the “standard” iPhone part, and continuing to offer the Pro models in the form of the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max. We’ll be focusing on the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro for today’s review.
It’s become a tradition in the Boing Boing Store. Just like winter and Santa, every year’s end isn’t complete without the most tricked-out set of killer Mac apps included in the annual Cyber Monday Mac Bundle.

On its Christmas Hits playlist, for example, a series of artists including Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Clarkson, and Pentatonix use a series of short video clips to share personal anecdotes about the festive period and their songwriting processes.

The videos can be accessed from an icon on the top left of each supported playlist. Tapping it reveals an interface thatâll be familiar to anyone whoâs ever watched an Instagram or Snapchat story, allowing you to tap on the left or right of the screen to skip through a…
A fact universally known among the Hackaday community is that projects are never truly done.

Or in [ultraembedded’s] case, …read more

I would like to discuss my THOUGHTS about the Netflix movie Happiest Season with you all but I donât want to spoil the ending if you have not seen it. Suffice to say it could have used 100 percent more of both Aubrey Plaza and Dan Levy. The ending was… disappointing. Like VERY. Itâs fine, but man I was hoping a Hallmark-esque LGBTQ rom-com might go with a more unexpected ending. K-Stew deserved better.

Not too many years ago, the router market was dominated by names like Linksys, Netgear, and others. Of course, that was before a little company called Google walked into that tech sector and threw down the gauntlet with its Google WiFi Router. — Read the rest
These days, there’s plenty of options if you want to get a GPS tracker for your vehicle. Unfortunately, they come with the sort of baggage that’s becoming increasingly common with consumer tech: subscription fees, third-party snooping, and a sneaking suspicion that you’re more commodity than customer. So [Viktor Takacs] decided …read more
