Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless review

By Adam Molina

The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless earbuds pictured on a white background.

Recently, the popularity of true wireless earbuds has taken off. It seems like it’s all anyone ever wants to talk about and there are always new headphones coming out. There are the obvious names that come to mind, such as the Apple AirPods and the Samsung Galaxy Buds, but it’s not just phone makers that are giving it a go at the product category.

Sennheiser is one of the oldest and most trusted brands in audio, and while it might not be the first name you think of when it comes to tech it has still managed to make some great consumer headphones over the years. So what is it like to use the Momentum True Wireless earbuds? Do they live up to the brand or are they a swing and a miss?

What is Vsync and why should you use it (or not)

By Kevin Parrish

Windows 10 Display Refresh Rate

We need PC games to be perfect. After all, we’re dumping loads of cash into the hardware so we can get the most immersive experience possible. But there’s always some type of hiccup, whether it’s a fault in the game itself, issues stemming from hardware, and so on. One glaring problem could be screen “tearing,” a graphic anomaly that seemingly stitches the screen together using ripped strips of a photograph. You’ve seen a game setting called “Vsync” that supposedly fixes this issue. What is Vsync and should you use it? We offer a simplified explanation.

If you’re rather new to PC gaming, we first look at two important terms you should know to understand why you may need Vsync. First, we will cover your monitor’s refresh rate followed by the output of your PC. Both have everything to do with the screen-ripping anomaly. Some of this will be slightly technical so you’ll understand why the anomaly happens in the first place.

Input: Understanding refresh rate

The first half of the equation is your display’s refresh rate. Believe it or not, it’s currently updating what you see multiple times per second, though you likely can’t see it. If your display didn’t update (or …read more

Oculus Quest VR headset

To some virtual reality might seem like a passing trend, but 2019 has actually been a great year for VR. New headsets with significant tech improvements and lower prices have hit the market, providing an immersive and entertaining experience. So, if you’ve been contemplating getting a VR headset for a while, there is no better time than now. Here are our picks for the best VR headsets you can currently buy.

Best VR headsets:

Editor’s note: We will be updating this list as new VR headsets launch.

1. Oculus Quest

  • Price: $399/$499

  • Cons: unimpressive battery life, occasional screen door effect

VR enthusiasts have been waiting for a powerful untethered headset for a while, and it has finally arrived in the form of the Oculus Quest. A major improvement on its Oculus Go predecessor, this standalone headset offers a true all-in-one VR experience. The Oculus Quest not only sports an impressive 2880 x 1600 resolution (or 14400 x 1600 per eye) that is a step above the original Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, but also doesn’t require a high-end …read more

How to use LinkedIn and land your dream job!

By Adam Sinicki

Best LinkedIn Profiles

Knowing how to use LinkedIn and find LinkedIn jobs can completely change your life. We live in an age where tech skills create huge opportunities that never previously existed, and offer massive advantages over your less computer-literate competition.

Not only are tech jobs like data analyst, information security specialist, and software developer all in high demand, but tech know-how is even useful for finding that work in the first place. We’ve already discussed the power of freelancing sites like UpWork and PeoplePerHour, but the daddy of them all is LinkedIn. More than just a freelancing site, this is a professional network where you can meet new business partners, display your experiences, and potentially find paid work.

Make yourself look and sound as impressive as possible, so that you come across as a superstar in your industry.

LinkedIn is a huge asset for those looking for gig work, but it’s also fundamentally important to full-time employees, traditional businesses, and recruitment firms. Knowing how to use LinkedIn is therefore a crucial skill for professionals in the digital age.

We asked, you told us: The Pixel 4 is the most anticipated phone of 2019

By Justin Duino

An official image of the Google Pixel 4.

Google

Summer is quickly coming to an end, meaning that phonepocalypse is almost here. Not only are we going to get new flagships from Google, Samsung, Huawei, and more, we are also expecting to see new foldables.

So we decided to ask you what smartphone are you excited to see announced this fall. Here’s what you had to say.

Which phone are you most looking forward to in 2019?

Results

This week’s poll had just under 3,000 participants on the website. According to those who voted, almost half stated that they’re most excited for the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. The search giant’s two handsets were followed by the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 with 15 percent of the votes and the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro with 12 percent.

These results are rather surprising after last week’s poll. While the results were almost perfectly split, but a small majority voted that they weren’t excited for the Google Pixel 4 or the Pixel 4 XL.

Plan Picks: Galaxy Note 9 Flex Lease for just $25/month

By AA Picks

MySprint app on the google play store google pixel 3

This week, the Plan Picks spotlight is featuring temporary savings on Flex Leases from Sprint.

There are several eyebrow-raising savings to consider, including a Galaxy Note 9 for just $25 per month. The perks don’t stop there either.

But, why lease a Note 9 when I can buy?

You may not have given it a moment’s thought before, but it makes a lot of sense.

You don’t own the handset with the Sprint Flex Lease system, but you also only pay a fraction of the retail price. With the Galaxy Forever scheme, you can return the phone and upgrade to the latest Samsung Galaxy any time after 12 lease payments.

You’re never paying full price, and you’re never without the hottest new phone on the market. It’s a slick system, and you’re not left with a string of rapidly depreciating smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9

In the case of the Note 9, $25 per month is almost $17 less than the usual Flex …read more

5 Android apps you shouldn’t miss this week! – Android Apps Weekly

By Joe Hindy

This is the featured image for Android Apps Weekly 07-20-2019

Welcome to the 275th edition of Android Apps Weekly! Here are the big headlines from the last week:

  • Facebook is paying for one of its many privacy scandals. The $5 billion fine is the result of the Cambridge Analytica scandal from 2018. Facebook had $3 billion set aside for the verdict so it’s hardly a surprise. Facebook needs $2 billion more but it shouldn’t be a problem for the tech giant. The fine is the largest fine for a tech company in the FTC’s history.
  • Minecraft Earth is inching closer and closer to release. The first wave of beta invites went out this week. Unfortunately, the beta hit iOS devices first so Android users have to wait a little while. Testers have a week to try the beta. After that, the developers give the test spot to someone else. The game is an AR title similar to games like Pokemon Go, but with Minecraft elements instead. Hit the link to learn more.
  • Google banned a developer this week for malware use. The Chinese developer CooTek had all of its apps removed. That’s good news, though, because they all had the BeiTaAd malware. The malware notably hid from Google Play’s …read more
