In case you didn’t notice the latest minor update from Twitter introduces a new 3D Touch feature. The app now gets 3D Touch Peek and Pop for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The new feature, of course, lets you “peek” at things like URLs, images, videos, and profiles. Other than that, Twitter really didn’t have much to say about this update. Instead they describe version 6.54 as “A few minor updates that you didn’t even know you needed.” Okay then.
Vinyl has been experiencing a major comeback recently so it comes as no surprise that Disney is exploring the medium to release a unique vinyl album for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The two LP set has 3D holograms etched right into the surface of the records. One has the Millennium Falcon and the other the TIE Fighter. If you look at the records while they spin from the right angle, you’ll be able to see wire forms of the ships floating and rotating.
Disney hired holographic artist Tristan Duke to make this happen. Duke has made similar etched artwork on vinyl for Jack White’s Lazaretto Ultra LP. Expect this to be priced around US$50 (around CA$65) when it’s released on June 17th through Disney Music Emporium and Amazon.

The Motorola Moto G has always been the puckish upstart, a mid-range smartphone that challenged and defied conventions by giving users some of the best features of premium smartphones (4G data, 720p HD display, long battery life, water resistance, microSD expansion) and placed it in an attractive package and price.
The fourth generation of the Moto G, which comes to Canada in two flavours including the Moto G Plus which we're checking out here, has definitely grown up and I don't mean just in size.
Google Photos rumoured to soon offer unlimited storage for ‘original quality’ photos on Nexus phones
In case you didn’t know Google Photos has been offering unlimited storage for all its users. The caveat is it’s for the compressed versions of photos and not as Google terms it “original quality.” If you own a Nexus device though, you might soon be able to upload your photos in its full resolution, no matter what size it is. Android Police did a full APK teardown of the newest Google Photos version and found a promo for Nexus devices. It says, “With Nexus, back up all you want. Unlimited free storage for original quality photos and videos uploaded from your Nexus device.” This’ll come in handy in the future especially with the advent of higher resolution smartphone cameras plus 2K and 4K video recording.
