The Montblanc Summit 2 is my favorite smartwatch hardware of 2018. With a meaty casing forged from stainless steel or titanium, a beautiful display overlaid with sapphire and the smoothest rotating crown on Wear OS, it's a joy to use. It's also one of the first smartwatches running on Qualcomm's new platform for wearables, the Snapdragon 3100. Most impressive of all: its Timeshifter app helped me avoid jetlag on a trip halfway around the world!
The trouble is, with a starting price of nearly $1000, every one of the Summit 2's shortfalls is magnified a thousandfold. So when the battery life doesn't live up to the promise of that new 3100 platform, and topping it up is a chore thanks to the most frustrating charging cradle I've used in years ... well, that stuff stands out a lot more than it would on a smartwatch costing a quarter the price. #montblanc#summit2#montblancsummit2#wearos#wearabletech#tech#instatech#androidwear#smartwatch
Today’s students live in a digital world – but too many schools are stuck using technologies and instructional models of the past. To help, @intel outfitted a mobile container truck with virtual reality demo stations, PCs and Internet of Things smart whiteboards. Why? To engage with educators and spark conversations about the role of technology's impact on our daily lives! Hands-on virtual lessons – from the arts to science and beyond – will introduce students, teachers and administrators to the power of technology as an instructional tool ... not just for tomorrow, but for today. #ad Check out the link in my bio to learn more!
Obligatory "hey look a 5G prototype phone!" photo, taken in a tropical paradise that I miss very much as I face a below-freezing Boston morning. The first 5G phones are expected in 2019. #snapdragonsummit#5g#tech#instatech | shot on #huaweimate20 by @michaeljosh and filtered a bit
EDIT: this just in. I'm a moron and it was @theunlockr who took this stunning photo. Turns out David is good for something after all! #unprovokedburn
I deal with powerful technology every day, and I love when I see that technology used to encourage creative approaches to learning. With the Tech Learning Lab tour, @intel brings that powerful technology to the classroom, to help educators build the leaders of tomorrow. How? By using experiential technology to help students develop fundamental career skills like communication, collaboration, self-awareness, problem-solving, critical thinking and more! #ad Head on over to the link in my bio to learn more!
"A day's power in 20 minutes" (Warp Charge 30). 10 GB RAM. Papaya Orange accents. The #OnePlus6T#McLaren Edition starts at $699 on December 13. Racecar tie-ins aren't really my speed (get it?) but I'm eager to see if that charge time lives up to its warp-speed promise. Thoughts?
The LG Watch W7 aims to do for smartwatches what the hybrid car did for automobiles: combine the best of yesterday and today for a product that exceeds the sum of its parts. On paper, it’s a cool idea - but on your wrist... check out the full review on YouTube now! [link in bio.] #smartwatch#lgwatchw7#lgwatch#technology#instatech
The future of the Always Connected PC will be built on the back of the Snapdragon 8cx. It's been in development for years and promises performance similar to some Intel Core i5 models, while offering much longer battery life and an always-on LTE connection to boot. 8cx-powered ACPCs start shipping in 2019. #snapdragonsummit#8cx#acpc#alwaysconnected#qualcomm
I flew to Maui to drink beers in swimming pools – and perhaps more importantly, to get a preview of some crucial new technology. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 will serve as the beating heart of almost every flagship Android smartphone in America next year. Enjoy this quick look at its capabilities from the #SnapdragonSummit, and check out @androidcentral for the deeper dive! #snapdragon855#qualcomm#tech#instatech#smartphones
