Is the iPhone XR the triumphant return of the iPhone 5c?

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Given that it is an 'S' year in iPhone releases with the expected bump in features and functionality plus the availability of a larger size, this week's iPhone event really did give us a lot to consider.

iPhone buyers now have a plethora of choices (none of which feature a headphone jack) in terms of new iPhones. The iPhone XS improves on the design and performance of iPhone X and the iPhone XS Max supersizes this new notched and edge-to-edge design.

These are both flagship devices and the most expensive iPhones ever shipped, even if they are also the most capacious, with storage going up to a whopping 512GB on some models.

The iPhone XR, however, is the release that is likely going to draw the most attention. Following the Pro and Consumer strategy used by Apple to differentiate their MacBooks as well as their iPads, the iPhone XR fits in nicely as a more practical and somewhat affordable option.

A deeper look at the Samsung Galaxy Note9 DeX running on the HP Elite X3 Lap dock

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Here's a more extensive walkthrough of how the Samsung Galaxy Note 9's built-in DeX functionality works with an HP Elite X3 Lap Dock. This Lap Dock was designed for a Windows Phone using Continuum to enable certain apps and services to extend to the lap dock screen, keyboard and trackpad. It works quite well for native Google apps but third party applications like Netflix and Instagram do not scale the whole size of the screen.

The HP Elite Lap Dock also doesn't seem to work with other USB Type-C devices (it didn't work with a MediaTek processor powered Planet Computers Gemini or a Microsoft Surface Go). I no longer have my Note9 review unit so I cannot test functionality on the Lap Dock any further, but it was interesting to see how much of it did work.

Review: IKEA Eneby Bluetooth speaker

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

IKEA is the Swedish brand that is known for making sensible and practical furniture that you have to build yourself. IKEA also makes fixtures, batteries, cookies and accessories. Did you know that IKEA makes Bluetooth speakers?

The IKEA Eneby lin of speakers are appealing retro-inspired Bluetooth speakers starting at $60.00 for the 8 x 8 Eneby 20 and $100 for the larger 12 x 12 Eneby 30. Unlike the majority of IKEA products, the Eneby speakers come assembled. You have the option of connecting an included handle (they provide the tools and there's also an optional $20 battery pack that's worth buying if the speaker is going to be moved around.
