Amazon Cloud Cam vs. Nest Cam: Which is the better connected camera?

These two cameras each offer a turn-key video surveillance solution, but which is better for you? Nest and Amazon are both very recognizable names when it comes to gadgetry we have in and around our homes. Both companies also offer easy to use security cameras that allow you to place them and walk away - there‘s no integration into any sort of hub or controller needed. That, along with other consumer-friendly features make both the Nest

Supreme Court rules that police need warrants to get phone location info

The decision was ruled in favor with a 5-4 vote. The United States Supreme Court issued a ruling on June 22 stating that police must first get an official warrant before they can use cell tower data to track someone‘s location. This ruling comes from the Carpenter v. United States case that dates back six years to 2011. Timothy Carpenter was arrested for a robbery in Detroit during that year, but only after police tracked down 12,898 lo

Alcatel 1X review: It‘s Android Go time

You can have everything Android has to offer for just 100. Smartphones are expensive. They have always been expensive, but as they approach the 1,000 mark it becomes more obvious. In the long-term, maybe 1,000 isn‘t too much to pay for a year or more of the convenience and helpfulness that a smartphone has to offer, but not everyone has that kind of money to spend. The good news is that several companies are trying to fix that by making

Pop-up cameras are just the evolution of the slider phone

A necessary evil before getting everything we want. Phone companies make a lot of design decisions that, in retrospect, are very bad. We‘ve seen some poor smartphone designs over the last decade, and most of them can be boiled down to an attempt to be exciting, innovative and interesting, only to backfire spectacularly because they led to massive compromises or didn‘t work as intended. So I don‘t blame anyone for being skept
