Final Fantasy Digital Card Game Announced For Smartphones

While card games, even digital ones, have been around for a while now, it seems that in recent times they are starting to catch on in terms of popularity again. We have to wonder if this might have anything to do with the success that Blizzard is seeing with Hearthstone, but since then we’ve seen quite a few card games launch.

Now it looks like Square Enix wants in on the card game genre as well because they have announced the Final Fantasy Digital Card Game which will be launching for smartphones and the PC. As the name implies, this is a digital card game that will be based around the Final Fantasy franchise and will feature characters from the series.

Google's Digital Wellbeing Now Available On Pixel & Android One Devices

For companies such as Google and Facebook, the more we use their products, the better it is for them as it means more time spent on their platform, which means more exposure to ads. However spending too much time with our devices can be bad for our health, which is also why companies such as Google and Facebook have introduced digital wellbeing initiatives.

Google’s digital wellbeing initiative was initially announced at I/O earlier this year, and was available as a beta back in August. The good news is that if such management features are of interest to you, then you might be pleased to learn that the app is now out of beta and is available to users of Pixel and Android One devices that are running on Android 9.0 Pie.

Canon Powershot Sx740 Hs Digital Camera Announced

Canon PowerShot SX740 HS Digital Camera Announced

With our smartphones are more than capable of taking great photos, you would think that the compact camera category would be long dead by now. However there are various advantages to taking photos and videos with compacts, namely that in some instances they are better than smartphones, they offer features that our phones don't, and also they won't drain your phone's battery.

If you are in the market for a new compact camera, then following a series of leaks, Canon has since unveiled the PowerShot SX740 HS. This is the company's latest take on a compact camera and thanks to it featuring a 40x optical zoom lens, it means that users will have the option of going wide or zooming into their subjects if they prefer.

Fujifilm Xf10 Compact Digital Camera Announced

Fujifilm XF10 Compact Digital Camera Announced

When it comes to compact cameras from Fujifilm, the company is probably best known for the Fujifilm X100 series of cameras, in which there have been four iterations to date. However for a compact, it is priced at a premium which some might argue is worth the money, but regardless its premium pricing does put it out of reach for certain customers.

However if you're after a Fujifilm compact that won't cost an arm and a leg, not to worry as the company has since unveiled a new digital compact in the form of the Fujifilm XF10. This is a compact with a fixed-lens, meaning that unlike certain compacts that offer a lens that can zoom in and out, the XF10 will come with a fixed 18.5mm f/2.8 lens. The fact that it's fixed might seem restrictive for some users, but given the success and popularity of the X100 series, we reckon there's probably a market for fixed lens compacts.

Sony Launches Smaller Version Of Its Digital Paper Tablet

Sony Launches Smaller Version Of Its Digital Paper Tablet

Some of you might recall that several years ago, Sony launched the Digital Paper tablet which is basically a tablet that uses an e-ink touchscreen display that can be interacted with using a stylus, essentially providing users with never-ending pieces of paper that they can write and draw to their heart's content.

Unfortunately it did not come cheap with a price tag of $1,100. The good news is that Sony is trying their hand at it again, and this time they have come up with the DPT-CP1, which is the same Digital Paper tablet except that this model is not only smaller, but it is also almost half the price of the original at $600.
