These earbuds have been designed to be true wireless earbuds, similar to other devices such as Apple’s AirPods, but with the added advantage of offering up noise-cancellation technology as well. This is clearly not Sony’s first attempt at creating wireless earbuds, but they have definitely improved on its tech since then.

Browsers like Google’s Chrome have a feature called Incognito Mode which is meant to help keep your browsing sessions private. However, sometimes that doesn’t always work as intended and that there is still some work to be done to ensure a truly private browsing session. However, if you don’t mind using an alternative browser, then you might be interested to learn that the Tor Browser has officially launched for Android.

The Tor Browser for Android has been in the works for a while with its alpha released back in September last year. However, the Tor Project has announced that the first stable release is now available on Android and for those who are interested, they can go ahead and take the browser for a spin

Sony's S.Ride Taxi-Hailing Service Launched In Tokyo


Sony has launched a taxi-hailing service in the Japanese capital of Tokyo as part of a joint venture that it’s leading. The ride-hailing landscape is a bit different in Japan compared to other countries across the globe where services like Uber reign supreme. S.Ride is a major entry into this landscape and is available for use starting today.

The S.Ride app can be used to flag down regular taxis. Riders can choose to pay with cash, a digital wallet that’s QR code-powered, or through a credit card. It’s a good option for those who don’t want to head out on the street to hail a taxi on their own but that’s hardly going to be an issue for people in the busy areas of Tokyo.

Sony Rx0 Ii Action Camera Launched

Sony RX0 II Action Camera Launched

When it comes to action cameras, GoPro has been more or less the leader in that space. However Sony has been challenging GoPro in that space and with the company’s latest offering, the Sony RX0 II, it looks like they could make a pretty compelling argument.

The RX0 II, as its name implies, will be the successor to the Sony RX0 that was launched in 2017. It has been about 2 years since the previous launch so it was due for a refresh. What makes Sony’s offering interesting is how it actually comes with a tiny flip-up display which will be useful when trying to capture weird angles or selfies.

Kyocera DuraForce Pro 2 Launched On AT&T

These days a lot of our smartphones have been designed to look good, and we suppose that’s a fair thing to do. However there are some users out there who need a phone that can withstand the elements, and while our smartphones do come with water-resistance, their design does leave them a bit too fragile for use in more rugged terrain.

This is where companies such as Kyocera come in where they have in the past launched rugged handsets. The company is back with its latest smartphone in the form of the DuraForce Pro 2 which has been launched on AT&T. As the name suggests, this is a smartphone designed to be durable where it will come with key features such as IP68 certification, and a Military Standard 810G rating for protecting against shocks, vibration, and extreme temperatures.

Higher-resolution Canon Eos R Could Be Launched At Photokina 2019

Higher-Resolution Canon EOS R Could Be Launched At Photokina 2019

A couple of months ago, Canon announced their new lineup of EOS R mirrorless cameras. This seems to be a considerably more “serious” effort from the company, where in the past the company’s previous mirrorless launches weren’t exactly met with favorable reviews. However if you were hoping to see more variants, Photokina 2019 could be an event to watch out for.

According to a report from CanonWatch (via Mirrorless Rumors), it seems that Canon might have a higher-resolution version of the EOS R that they could announce at Photokina 2019 which is scheduled to take place in May 2019. Details and specs of the alleged camera are sparse at the moment so it’s really anyone’s guess as to what Canon could announce.
