Yesterday's podcast was an utter CALAMITY of live stream problems, but I was able to salvage a show out of the mess with a little (a lot of) editing. Episode should now be live on all your fave podcast services!

Xiaomi releases a smaller premium phone that EMBARRASSES similar offerings from Samsung and Apple. Here's a first look at the Xiaomi 14!

The main camera on this thing is pacing (and often outperforming) the main cameras on iPhones and Galaxy Ultras... 🤯

Microsoft added a new "Generative Erase" feature to the Windows Photo app! Let's see how it compares against Google's Magic Eraser!

Even cooler, it seems the first devices to support the new eraser are Windows on ARM laptops and tablets!

It's our monthly in tonight, hosted by @thegamerclub - all welcome (RSVP on meetup though please).

"A monthly get together in Glasgow for like-minded individuals who enjoy all things geeky - Sci-fi, Doctor Who, Star Trek (and Wars!), Harry Potter, Marvel, DC, anime, cosplay, comics, board games etc.

The idea is to meet up, have a drink or two, get to know each other and make some new friends in and around the city."

Something of an open question, and I don't have a clear answer myself. Have we already figured out the "correct" shape for a folding phone?
https://somegadgetguy.com/2024/02/21/folding-phones-is-there-a-correct-shape/

It seems companies are struggling to make the case for "mini tablets that turn into phones". Could it be as simple as the "wrong" shape?

Here's a piece of pop art that I made last year, it is done with acrylic paint on a salvaged piece of wooden board and was purchased by a close friend of mine in New Jersey

Patreon exclusive! I waited for updates to re-shoot my Pixel 8 Pro camera deep dive. My absurdly delayed review is FINALLY live!

It's a weird feeling, where at once this is the best point and shoot camera on phone available today, and yet I'm still a bit disappointed in Google's AI claims...

Reddit (valued around $10 billion in 2021) signed a deal only getting $60 million a year to let a (yet unnamed) company scrape all its user data to train AI.
https://www.reuters.com/technology/reddit-signs-content-licensing-deal-with-ai-company-ahead-ipo-bloomberg-reports-2024-02-16/
Doesn't seem like the data ON Reddit is being valued very highly BY Reddit. What's the vibe on their IPO?

Facing a huge rise of hearing loss in young adults and teens, it's up to us grownups to not only teach kids better listening habits, but also give them better audio tools.

Using something like the PuroQuiet Plus, I don't feel like I'm nagging my daughter to turn the sound down, and I know she's appreciating higher fidelity sound.

The conclusion Zuckerberg draws in his Quest vs Vision Pro comparison isn't as important as the fact that he's stepping up to this conversation directly. https://somegadgetguy.com/b/3yi
