Fuze is the first iPhone 7 headphone jack case you can preorder

Fuze charges with a Lightning cable, and it packs in either a 2,400 mAh battery (for the iPhone 7 case) or a 3,600 mAh battery (for the larger Plus model). Based on the images and video available, Fuze looks surprisingly thin for a battery case. At 2.9 ounces, it would still add some noticeable heft to the 4.87 ounce iPhone 7, though.

Actual Innovation, the creators of Fuze, initially offered the case for $49 as a "super early bird" price on Indiegogo. That backing option sold out fast, so at the time of this post you can either get in for a $59 "early bird" price, or the $69 standard cost. The company claims the cases will start shipping in December, but as always with crowdfunding campaigns, take that timeline with a grain of salt. At least they're not starting from scratch though -- their crowdfunding site points out Fuze is built from an existing case from a longtime MFi (Made for iPhone) certified manufacturer. So far, they've raised over $41,000 of a $60,000 funding goal.

Fuze isn't anything truly innovative, but it's a sign that Mophie and other established case makers should start hustling with their iPhone 7 headphone jack solutions.

Sony Xperia XZ Dual: doppia sim card e 64GB di memoria

Sony Xperia ZX Dual è la nuova versione del topclass della società nipponica che debutterà in India con l’inclusione di un supporto dual sim ossia di una doppia utenza cellulare. Pronta a impattare il mercato del secondo paese più popoloso al mondo con oltre un miliardo di abitanti, il nuovo cellulare si avvarrà anche di una memoria interna da 64GB doppia rispetto a quella da 32GB del modello standard. Andiamo a scoprire di più su questo terminale in uscita.

La scheda tecnica di Sony Xperia XZ è ufficiale da IFA 2016 e racconta di uno smartphone davvero di straordinaria potenza e completezza nell’hardware. La scocca misura 146 x 72 x 8.1mm per un peso di 161 grammi con uso dell’uso dell’alluminio Alkaleido e uno sfruttamento ideale della parte frontale per uno schermo che domina decisamente nel rapporto con l’area a disposizione. Come da tradizione, è resistente ad acqua e polvere (certificazione IP68), troviamo sul fondo un ingresso USB Type C per la ricarica e trasferimento rapidi e sarà a disposizione nelle colorazioni Forest Blue, Mineral Black e Platinum. Lo schermo è standard e non da phablet, visto che raggiunge una diagonale da 5.2 pollici a risoluzione Full HD 1080p di tipo LCD con protezione fornita dal vetro Gorilla Glass 4. Per la riproduzione dei colori ecco le tecnologie proprietarie Triluminos e X-Reality.

L’hardware procede con il processore Snapdragon 820 (quad-core a 2.15GHz), scheda grafica Adreno 530 GPU (a 624MHz), batteria da 2900mAh con sistema di caricamento rapido che però protegge da sovraccarico visto che raggiunti i 90 punti percentuali rallenta.

Come sempre la fotocamera è un punto forte e infatti ecco un sensore da 23 megapixel IMX300 con apertura f/2.0 delle lenti, autofocus laser con tecnologia di messa a fuoco a rilevamento di fase PDAF, sensore RGBC-IR per il colore e anche il sistema di stabilizzazione 5-axis. La fotocamera frontale è da 13MP con sensore 1/3 di pollice. Ecco un riepilogo delle specifiche tecniche:

  • Sistema operativo Android con interfaccia proprietaria
  • Processore Snapdragon 820 (quad-core a 2.15GHz), scheda grafica Adreno 530 GPU (a 624MHz)
  • Display 5.2 pollici a risoluzione Full HD 1080p di tipo LCD con protezione fornita dal vetro Gorilla Glass 4

  • Certificazione IP68
  • Ingresso USB Type C
  • Batteria da 2900mAh
  • Dimensioni di 146 x 72 x 8.1mm per un peso di 161 grammi

Il prezzo della variante Sony XZ Dual sarà di 51,990 INR ossia di circa 700 euro in India e ci sarà anche una promozione locale che prevede che entro il 1 ottobre ossia domani si possa ricevere in regalo anche un accessorio Smartband Talk SWR30 dal valore di circa 80 euro incluso nel prezzo. Uscirà anche su altri mercati tipo quello europeo dunque italiano? Rimaniamo in ascolto.

Problemi iPhone 7: schermo giallo, come risolvere

iPhone 7 ha un problema allo schermo che mostra una sfumatura leggermente gialla così come succedeva anche per iPhone 4 che Apple aveva rilasciato nel 2010. Come fare per risolvere questo fastidioso contrattempo? Non è un difetto che non porta a nessuna soluzione, perché si può ovviare in modo piuttosto semplice. All’epoca era coinvolta un po’ di umidità della colla che teneva aderente il pannello del display, che – una volta evaporata – faceva ritornare tutto nella norma. E con il nuovo melafonino? Stessa pratica: l’attesa che la colla secchi completamente e il giallognolo scompaia, naturalmente. Ma se questo non avviene? Ecco come comportarsi.

Potrebbe anche trattarsi di una configurazione del display da sistemare, in tal caso andare su Impostazioni Generali Accessibilità poi su Regolazione schermo e attivare la sezione Filtri colore. Si dovrà andare ad agire su quello blu/giallo azionando la barra. Smanettandoci un po’ si andrà a riportare la luminosità neutra.

Il video che racconta iPhone 7 Plus

La lista completa delle caratteristiche tecniche di iPhone 7 Plus:

  • Processore A10 Fusion 64bit con coprocessore movimento M10

  • Fotocamera frontale 7 megapixel con video FHD e apertura f/2.2

Nikon D3400 in uscita in Italia: prezzo e scheda tecnica

Nikon D3400 è pronta a debuttare sul mercato italiano: la fotocamera digitale reflex era stata presentata qualche tempo fa e ora può fare capolino anche sul nostro territorio con una scheda tecnica di buona fattura che conta su un processore CMOS da 24.2 megapixel nel formato DX, un processore d’immagini EXPEED 4 che permette di poter gestire una sensibilità ISO che si estende da 100 a ISO 25.600 e la possibilità di scattare a raffica con una velocità di 5 fotogrammi al secondo a piena risoluzione. Qui sopra una prima foto, dopo il salto altre due immagini e tutto il resto dei dettagli delle caratteristiche tecniche di questo terminale molto interessante.

Nikon D3400 è dunque in uscita in Italia andando a occupare naturalmente il livello di medio-basso range (anche se non propriamente entry) del settore delle fotocamere digitali reflex. Come già anticipato, il processore di immagini è l’apprezzato EXPEED 4, mentre il sensore è in formato DX e si tratta di un CMOS da 24.2 megapixel. Sono presenti sia un mirini, peraltro di tipo ottico, sia uno schermo. Iniziando dal primo, si tratta di un pentaspecchio con il 95 per cento di copertura del campo visivo e un ingrandimento di 0.85x, mentre il secondo è un display LCD non basculante da 3 pollici di diagonale con una risoluzione complessiva di 921.000 punti. Leggendo l’hardware è chiaro che il target sia quello dei neofiti, che si avvicinano per la prima volta al mondo della fotografia.

La velocità dell’otturatore può andare a operare tra 1/4000 di secondo e 30 secondi, il sistema di autofocus si appoggia a 11 punti di rilevazione.

C’è l’occasione di poter girare video a risoluzione Full HD (1920×1080 pixel) da 24 a 60 fotogrammi al secondo per una certa fluidità e anche HD ossia 720p fino a 60 fotogrammi al secondo. Non manca la funzione SnapBridge con la connessione Bluetooth Low Energy consente il collegamento senza fili a smartphone e tablet attraverso l’apposita applicazione. Questo rende immediato e piuttosto rapido il backup di immagini e video. La batteria può durare fino a 1200 scatti a Bluetooth spento.

Nikon D3400 si potrà acquistare in kit con l’obiettivo AF-P DXNIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR al prezzo di 629 Euro.

Google makes Docs, Drive and Calendar more productive

First up: Docs, Sheets and Slides got a new "Explore" feature that uses natural language search to help you research reports, organize data or design better looking presentations. In each of the main apps, an Explore button brings up a new sidebar with contextual options based on the app you're using. In Docs, this means Explore will search and suggest images, web links or other Drive documents that appear relevant to the content you're writing. In Sheets, Explore allows you to use words instead of formulas to analyze your spreadsheet data. So natural queries like, "What are the tops three items by sale price?" will automatically generate the formula and bring up the insights you need. Finally, in Slides the Explore sidebar will help you polish your deck by generating design and layout suggestions that can be applied in one click. The Explore feature is live today in the web, Android and iOS versions of Docs and Sheets, but only available in the web version of Slides.

Google Drive also got a time-saving update called Quick Access, which the big G claims will halve the time it takes to find the file you're looking for. Like the Natural Language search introduced in Drive last week, the new feature uses machine learning to make anticipate the file you need based on your daily work habits, recurring team meetings or interactions with colleagues. For now, Quick Access is only live for G Suite customers on Android.

Finally, Google Calendar's handy "Find a time" feature is expanding beyond Android. Like the other updates, Find a time uses machine learning to not only find a meeting time that works for everyone invited, but also remembers which conference room you like, searches for backup meeting times and will smartly look at your other conflicting meetings to see which are easiest to resolve. The feature goes live today on iOS and will be coming to the web version by the end of the year.

The Wirecutter’s best deals: Save $50 on a Nespresso coffee maker

Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone

Street price: $115; MSRP: $130; Deal price: $$110 + $40 gift card

While we featured a few deals around $80 during Black Friday on this mic, deals have been slim since. We saw a couple around $100, but this $110 deal is a much better option. It's sold by Adorama through Newegg, and includes a $40 Newegg giftcard. Depending on what you value a Newegg giftcard at, this might even be a better deal than those Black Friday ones.

The Blue Yeti is our pick for the best USB microphone. Kevin Purdy and Lauren Dragan said, "It provided the most reliably well-rounded and natural sound out of all the mics we tested, in all rounds of testing. It offers live headphone monitoring and gain control, two key features for any recording setup (other mics lacked these or made using them too complicated). The Yeti is quick to set up for different room and voice situations, while most USB mics are focused only on single close-up speakers. It is more stable on its stand than most microphones we tested, and easy to adjust on the fly."

Vantrue R2 Dashboard Camera

Street price: $130; MSRP: $200; Deal price: $95 with code 76W4U5S4

This is the lowest price we've seen on the Vantrue R2, beating the previous lowest sale price by $5. If the previous deals are any indication, it'll only last a few days before shooting back up to the normal price for the next couple of months. In order to take advantage of this deal, use the code: 76W4U5S4.

The Vantrue R2 is our runner-up pick for the best dash cam. Eric Adams said, "Its packaging, instructions, and general usability are on a par with the Z3, and its image quality is also top notch. While just as crisp as the Z3, the R2's images have slightly more contrast. This makes them more attractive, but not quite as useful as they could be in different scenarios, as some areas tend to be too dark, and the night vision is also a hair darker."

Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker + Aeroccino Milk Frother

Street price: $150; MSRP: $200; Deal price: $100

We've featured the Inissia before at $70, but this combo from Best Buy includes the Aeroccino milk frother. The Aeroccino normally sells for $60-$80, and this combo is usually $150 on Amazon, so it's a solid deal if you're interested in the milk frother for cappuccinos or lattes. Amazon is currently price matching the deal, so if the Best Buy sale ends or goes out of stock, check here.

The Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker is our fully automatic pick for the best espresso maker. Cale Guthrie Weissman said, "f you want a decent espresso drink at home, but don't have the time or patience to practice and learn the ins and outs of making espresso, try Nespresso. Machines start at just over $100 and you can pay more for features like faster preheating, and built-in milk frothing—but they all share the same brewing mechanism and produce the same decent-tasting coffee."

Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Coffee Maker

Street price: $40; MSRP: $50; Deal price: $27

This is a pretty big drop on an already very affordable coffee maker, and the lowest price we've seen. We've seen the price steadily dropping on this coffee maker over the past week, and it's unlikely to get much lower than this. This Hamilton Beach tends to either have very brief sales or go out of stock - so either way, this deal probably won't last long.

The Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Coffee Maker is our pick in our guide for the best cheap coffee maker. Thais Wilson-Soler wrote, "The Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Coffee Maker (46201) made a good cup despite being the cheapest coffee maker we tested, although it bears mentioning that coffee from a budget coffee maker just won't equal the taste of a cup from a higher-end machine or a single-cup brewing method. The Hamilton Beach also has a removable water reservoir for easy filling (and a rotating base to make it easy to access), a compact footprint, and a simple interface. Testers were initially torn between the Hamilton Beach and the Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew 10-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker (BVMC-PSTX95), but everyone said they'd buy the Hamilton Beach after we revealed that it costs half as much as the Mr. Coffee."

Deals change all the time, and some of these may have expired. To see an updated list of current deals, please go to The Wirecutter.com.

Dr. Oz wants to sell you a heart-monitoring smartwatch

It's also fully cellular, replete with built-in GPS, so there's no need to connect it to your smartphone. However, there is a monthly service plan priced at $200 a year. On a conference call today, iBeat founder Ryan Howard said that this is about a half to a third of the cost compared to competitors like Lifeline. All devices come with a year of service included for free. "It's not just a blast [to your contacts]," Howard said. No, this price includes a full-time 24/7 dispatch center that will stay with you until you're at the hospital. Howard said the price will not go up after the initial year of service.

The original Moto 360 lookalike hit IndieGoGo earlier today for $99 "super early bird" special, but sold out pretty quickly. As of publishing time, there are still plenty of higher priced options available, including a $5,000 "Meet Dr. Oz Special!" that atypically includes airfare accommodations to a taping of the celebrity doctor's show. That's in addition to two of the iBeat monitors.

But why choose IndieGoGo over Kickstarter, when even if the product isn't fully funded any backers still have to shell out their money? Howard said that it's because the former is a local Silicon Valley company (KickStarter is based in New York), and is also more medically skewed. That and it allows the outfit to test the market without resorting to venture capital investments at an early stage, which allows for some independence. If enough people trust Dr. Oz with their money the iBeat is scheduled to come out next July. For their sake, hopefully this isn't just a high-tech "miracle flower."

A first look at Mercedes-Benz’s Generation EQ concept EV

On the first Sunday of each month, you can't drive a car in Paris -- not unless it's electric. That's a trend that might just catch on elsewhere, judging by the fact that rival Tesla has pre-sold over 300,000 Model 3 EVs. So, Mercedes is suddenly taking this electric car thing very seriously with a new initiative called Generation EQ. Fittingly, the German company launched it at the Paris Auto Show with a concept car that's essentially a preview of its future electric tech.

The platform can be used on a wide range of EVs, whether they're SUV or coupe-sized, thanks to the module components and battery packs. It also sports autonomous tech that can talk to other cars on the road and intelligent mapping that helps you find a charging station or parking spot. It's also got typical concept stuff like cameras instead of mirrors, screens everywhere and cool, but uncomfortable-looking seats. The biggest problem is the timeline: Mercedes probably should have announced a program like this a couple years ago, and the first vehicles won't be manufactured until 2019.

Google’s ride-sharing platform is now live in San Francisco

There are some appreciable differences between Waze Rider and its more established rivals, however. For starters, Google only allows drivers and riders to take two trips per day. Drivers only make $0.54 per mile, so they're only getting reimbursed for the mileage rather than turning a profit. While both of those features keep the service limited to commuters for now, they also skirt the regulations that Lyft and Uber are now subject to. According to the Journal, drivers only need to submit their general schedule and their home and work addresses to sign up. Google says it has no current plans to require background checks, proof of insurance or car photos because the platform is only meant to fill empty seats with riders heading the same way.

A Journal reporter who took a test ride from San Francisco to Oakland noted the app still had some bugs -- namely that the driver couldn't use Waze's actual navigation service during the trip, but it was otherwise uneventful. That trip also paid out $6.30 to the driver and only cost the rider $3, which is a bargain compared to the estimated $23–30 cost for a rush hour Lyft or Uber.

Periscope’s website now organizes live videos into good old channels

Another set of channels will focus on current, planned events, like the presidential debates, and the last category of channels will be created as breaking news warrants. That's for things like the recent protests in Charlotte, NC. Digging into the latter groups of channels will surface both live broadcasts as well as completed videos that you can replay. Scrolling over a video will start a preview that you can watch, and clicking it will launch the full recording.

This is all well and good, but Periscope remains a mobile-first app, so most people are probably still going to interact with the service on their phones. But if you're the kind of person who wants to kick back and see what kind of crazy stuff people are chatting about at any given moment, Periscope's redesigned website is as good a choice as any.
