Week 26 in review: iOS 14 and Realme X3 official, OnePlus Nord/Z teasing begins

This week Apple kicked off its online-only WWDC by detailing the new iOS 14, iPadOS, tvOS, WatchOS and macOS Big Sur.

Apple’s iPhone will get home screen widgets, an app drawer of sorts, called App Library, picture-in-picture and new smaller versions of apps, called App Clips, and much more this fall.

Apple also promised to show its first ARM-based Macs by the end of the year, though it said it isn’t going to stop working with Intel.

We also saw dummies of Apple’s rumored iPhone 12 trio. The new design is flat and squarish, reminiscent of the iPhone 5 and 5s of old. The rear has a…

Haylou Solar review – a hidden smart wearable gem

Introduction

Here’s the quick version of what the Haylou Solar is – the Xiaomi Mi Band functionality with even better battery life, traditional watch styling and a big round display for around €20. Sounds intriguing? Read on then to see how well it all works.

The Haylou Solar uses an LCD rather than an OLED panel so an always-on display feature is out of the question, so even in that you have feature parity with the Mi Band. Also, despite what the name may lead you to believe there’s no Solar charging of any sort here.

Feature: The Unsung Genius Who Tempted Nintendo’s President To Pick Up A Joypad

“He could see the Promised Land, but wasn’t allowed to enter it”.

The world of video games, like any other, is full of seemingly inconsequential moments which cause ripples that become shockwaves that can determine not just the course of a single company, but the entire industry.

With Nintendo, there are numerous moments like this; Gunpei Yokoi’s prototype grabbing toy becoming the company’s first million-selling gadget in the form of the ‘Ultra Hand’ and turning Nintendo from humble playing-card maker to wildly successful toy firm virtually overnight is one example.
