Facebook Portal

Facebook has announced Portal and Portal+, two new video communication devices for the home that dramatically change the way we keep in touch. Thanks to AI technology, Portal makes video calling easier and more like hanging out, while a widescreen display lets you enjoy every moment together. When you can’t be there, Portal and Portal+ let you feel there.

With a 10-inch 1280 x 800 display, Portal from Facebook improves video calling and lets you enjoy quality time with family and friends — hands and distraction free. Looking for a larger screen for more flexibility? You can also opt for a 15-inch 1920 x 1080 pivoting display with Portal+. Both models are designed to help you feel closer to the important people in your life and make video chats feel less like a call, and more like you’re actually in the same room.

Portal and Portal+ are available now for pre-order in the US – from Facebook at portal.facebook.com, as well as Amazon and Best Buy – and will begin shipping in November. You can bring Portal home for $199 USD and Portal+ for $349 USD. You can also receive $100 USD off any two devices — this means a bundle of two Portal devices will be priced at $298 USD, so you can share the experience right out of the box.

Ninebot Electric Gokart

Winner of a 2018 Red Dot Design Award, the Segway Electric Gokart was engineered for one thing: fun. Its clever design uses a Segway miniPro as its rear wheels and propulsion system, making it useful even after the race is over. 

Made to drift, it accommodates a height range of 4′ 5″ to 6′ 3″ , has a maximum load of 220 lbs., and can accelerate from 0-12 mph in just 2 seconds, with different riding modes capping the top speed at 5, 10.8, or 15 mph. 

Connect your Gokart to the app via Bluetooth to display driving speed, cruising range, and fault reminders of the Gokart in real-time. You can also access the new rider tutorial, control lighting, set driving modes, update firmware, and more.

Battery life ranges from 8 to 12.4 miles, depending on driving mode, and the collapsible design means it will fit in most trunks.

Sonos Unveils All-New Sonos Amp 

Sonos unveiled the all-new Sonos Amp, a powerful and versatile home audio hub that powers traditional wired speakers with sound from nearly any source, and fully integrates these speakers into Sonos’ easy-to-use wireless home sound system. The all-new Amp is twice as powerful as its predecessor, supports Apple’s AirPlay 2 and more than 100 streaming services, and includes an HDMI Arc port for TVs. Launching globally in February 2019, the $599 Amp will be available starting December 1, 2018.

Amp is designed to fit perfectly into standard AV racks used by custom install professionals, and can power up to four speakers with 125 watts per channel—more than enough for even the most demanding set-ups. Onboard HDMI and line-in ports means TVs, turntables, CD changers, and other audio components can easily connect with Amp and become part of the Sonos system.

Amp’s thoughtfully designed and versatile hardware was built to power the Sonos software platform. New updates to the platform make it easy for installers to incorporate Amp into integrated smart home set-ups, including smart lighting and centralized control systems. It is also AirPlay 2 compatible, meaning music and other audio from any iOS device can be played wirelessly through Amp. And when wirelessly connected to an Amazon Alexa-enabled device like a Sonos One or Beam, Amp is controllable with voice commands. Finally, like other Sonos devices, Amp will gain new features, services, and integrations over time through free software updates, ensuring customers will get the best from their set-up for years to come.

Sonos Amp Product Specifics:

– More Power. More Possibilities. Packing 125 Watts per channel, Amp powers even the most demanding speakers. You can now power up to four speakers instead of two.
– Enjoy music, TV, and more. Amp has an HDMI ARC port and an input for an additional audio source, whether listening on floor standing speakers, integrated home theater, or through a turntable.
– Power home theater sound. Use Amp to add stereo sound to TV, add wireless rears to a Sonos home-theater setup or two Amps for surround sound.
– Stream everything. Listen to music, podcasts, radio, audiobooks, and more. Also, play all the music stored on a computer or other devices.
– Works with AirPlay. With Amp, use AirPlay 2 to send the sound from an iPhone or iPad to any speakers in the home sound system.
– Choose how to control. Use the Sonos app on a phone or tablet, TV remote, keypads, AirPlay 2, or through voice with Amazon Echo and Alexa-enabled devices.
– More ways to customize the experience. New APIs and deeper integrations with the Sonos platform partners create seamless smart home control.
– Wireless. Or not. Enjoy solid and reliable WiFi performance, or connect Amp to an ethernet cable and easily turn the WiFi off in the Sonos app.
– Stereo or dual mono sound. Whether configuring Amp for an open floor plan or a custom listening room, create the best experience.
– Engineered for reliability. With a centralized heatsink, air inlets, and a discrete output stage, Amp is built to keep its cool and deliver lasting power.
– Amazingly pure sound. Direct digital input eliminates the need for analog conversion, so you get clear, undistorted sound for music streaming and your TV.
– Custom speaker connectors. A pair of threaded connections for left and right channels guarantee high-quality performance. Plus, they’re standard diameter so you can remove them and use your own banana plugs.

Apple To Make New Product Announcements On September 12, 2018

Apple has sent out media invites for its annual fall event, being held this year on September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park Campus in Cupertino, California. 

The media invites carry a theme and tagline, which this year likely refers to the new Apple Park Campus, with the phrase “Gather Round”. The event will almost certainly feature the unveiling of new iPhone models, with a trio of new iPhones expected this year if recent rumours are to be believed: a 5.8-inch OLED direct successor to last year’s iPhone X, a larger-screened 6.5-inch OLED version filling in the missing “Plus” model gap, and a lower-cost 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display that would in effect be a successor to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, although the entire 2018 lineup is expected to feature Face ID and eliminate the home button entirely.

The event is also expected to feature the Apple Watch Series 4 that rumors suggest will include a larger display. New AirPods and Apple’s long-awaited AirPower charging mat will also likely be revealed at the event.
