Funxim's wireless charger to take on AirPower, top up iPhones and Apple Watches at low price

Image
Apple's AirPower wireless charger is still a pie in the sky, postponed for early 2018 release, but there are already a few good options on the market to top off your new iPhones or Apple Watches sans cables. How about both? Yes, there is now a Kickstarter project called Funxim that is building a wireless charger which mimics the AirPower's featured ability to charge two Apple devices at once.
Granted, the Apple Watch will have to be put at a certain spot on the charger, and the iPhone next to it, unlike AirPower's free placement option, but that's a ...

The hidden tech behind 'SpongeBob SquarePants, The Broadway Musical'

Image
The Palace Theatre is submerged in an ocean of darkness. From the blackout, dozens of screens shine bright, dotting the darkness with their blue-white glow. In the shadows, technicians huddle over monitors, designers whisper into headset microphones, and the pitter patter of typing on keyboards crackles through the room.The scene looks like a NASA control room, but we’re not at mission control for a space flight — we’re in tech rehearsal for SpongeBob SquarePants, The Broadway Musical, the new theatrical adaptation of the beloved Nickelodeon cartoon, directed by Tina LandauThe theatre buzzes as the show’s creative team sets the final light and projection cues of the musical’s climactic scene, building each moment light by light, animation by animation during a process called cue-to-cue. Suddenly, with a stage manager’s call, light bursts onto the stage, plunging everyone into the technicolor sea that is Bikini Bottom. Read more...

Instagram testing new features: repost and GIF stickers

Instagram has been evolving steadily over the past year, with the addition of stories, stickers, a refresh of its filters, photo groups and so on. Now, the app is about to get a highly-requested new feature... and one that's not so in-demand.

The first one is an alleged “regram” — basically the retweet of Instagram. The way it is right now, if you want to repost someone's content, you need to download their photo, post it as yours, and tag them in the description, if you are nice enough. Or, use a 3rd party app that does that for you. According to leaked screenshots from testers, reposting ...

As a parent, I'm a member of more than a few Facebook Groups related to my children's education. And damn, they can be irritating. You quickly learn that parents frequently disagree wildly on teaching styles, curriculum choices, and even specific assignments. But at least the discussion is directly related the school or the class.That wasn't the case for a recent post in the group, where a fellow parent decided to share an article about raising successful girls in today's political climate. The parent provided virtually no context other than wanting to share it in response to the recent high-profile sexual harassment allegations against famous men. Read more...

The handset is rolling under the X2-HT model number on Geekbench, revealing an upper mid-range 2.2GHz Snapdragon 660 chipset on board, which would be an improvement over the Helio P10 fo und inside the HTC U Play. There's also 4GB of RAM, which would be an improvement over the 3GB found in the first HTC U Play and would definitely help the eventual successor better compete with its rivals in the upper ...
