iPhone 7 Review – Is Apple Just Playing Catch-Up with the Competition?

Since its inception, the iPhone has been a well-designed, meticulously produced and innovative product. The iPhone 7 is still a thing of beauty with its thin, strong body and its power and speed, yet this year’s model is lacking in innovation. Playing Catch-up with the Competition In many respects, the iPhone 7 is just keeping up with the competition rather than leading it. This is evident in some of its new features. With the iPhone...

Google Home Makes Its Debut

Google is going head-to-head with Amazon. The new Google Home device is pretty much a copy of the Amazon Echo that we reviewed last year. This makes for an interesting battle as these two major companies duke it out in the artificial intelligence home platform. Design While the Amazon Echo is a 9” tall, 3” round black cylinder, the Google Home device is a bit shapelier. It is 5 ½” tall, shaped like a room freshener about 4” round at...

Microsoft Takes Inking to a New Level

All of the other major browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Opera were far superior. It...
