Best of CES 2020

CES 2020 has come and gone, leaving a whole slew of new and interesting technology in its wake. While most of what was announced this week will make its way to retail and homes later in the coming weeks, some are more conceptual and prototypical in nature. In other words, they’re not due until some time later in the year (if ever!) and are subject to change.Having kept a close eye on the things that we think matter most to our audience, we’ve gathered up some of our favorites. These “Best of CES” products are what we think will help shape the coming year.Whereas some of these are iterations of existing products, others are completely new. And where most of them are related to mobile and connected home, some color just outside of the lines. Nevertheless, these are ten of the most exciting things to come out of Las Vegas this year.CookingPal JuliaWe’re a few years into smart kitchen appliances and they’re starting to hit their stride. It’s not hard to find an all-in-one device that sits on your counter, replacing multiple products.The Julia takes things to a whole new level. Due later this year, it handles all sorts of tasks, be it hop, mix, blend, whisk, grind, boil, or something else. Moreover, it can walk you through the a recipe, prompting you to do things it cannot. It can also help you find a recipe based on items in your kitchen; it also includes a nutrition database and integrated grocery shopping assistance.Read the full announcementWithings ScanWatchThe ScanWatch monitors and tracks all of your standard activities, and looks plenty fashionable. Its extra sensors, however, make it stand out from the pack. One is able to detect arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeats while the other can detect sleep apnea. The sleep disorder can increase one’s risk of various potentially fatal outcomes, including heart attack and stroke.It’s one thing to keep an eye on things and record them for historical purpose. It’s something entirely different if you’re able to detect and potentially prevent something unhealthy from happening. Truly smart stuff.Read the full announcementCoolpad Legacy 5GAs we enter 2020, the various wireless service providers are busy deploying their 5G networks. And while the coverage varies from one company to the next, there’s one thing that remains certain – 5G phones are expensive. Coolpad’s newest phone comes in under $400, making it the most affordable 5G experience thus far.Powered by Android 10, the new Coolpad Legacy 5G will offer up a massive 6.53-inch display and a 4,000mAh battery. Around back is a pair of (48-megapixel and 8-megapixel) cameras while the front has a 16-megapixel selfie shooter. With a reported 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, and microSD expansion, it’s right in line with today’s consumer’s needs.Read the full announcementJabra Elite Active 75tThe new earbuds are the fitness and active variant of the recently launched, and incredibly well-received Elite 75t. They come with IP57 protective rating which means dust and sweat resistance and waterproof protection.Battery life is rated up to 7.5 hours per charge with the carrying case extending that time up to 28 hours. The earbuds provide passive noise reduction but give listeners the option to let sound in through Jabra’s HearThrough technology. On top of all of these great features, the Elite Active 75t are backed by a two-year warranty.Read the full announcementTCL SOCL500TWSTCL’s SOCL500TWS ties the line between a comfortable, ergonomic fit and respectable audio and battery. Paired via Bluetooth 5.0, the earbuds take advantage of the natural curve that comes with your inner ear. Rather than relying on the canal itself, this ensures you don’t end up with ear fatigue halfway into a playlist.Sold in four stylish colors, these sweat and water resistant earbuds provide up to 26 hours play time via the carrying case. We’ve become increasingly fond of the TCL brand and its various efforts and think they among the best at bang for buck.Read the full announcementHisense H65GThis new series of TVs deliver a wallet-friendly 4K, Dolby Vision-capable TV with Android TV running the show. Available in a variety of sizes (43-inches up to 85-inches), it’s damn near impossible to beat the feature set at these prices.These TVs include a voice remote as well as a dedicated Game Mode that disables processing for ultra-fast response times. Also present are DTS Virtual: X, Motion Rate Technology, and Bluetooth connectivity.Read the full announcementRoborock H6After having been in the works for nearly three years, Roborock shows up with the H6, its first vacuum with a stick design and a host of accessories. Features include a first-of-its-kind Lithium-Ion Polymer 3,160mAh battery, a 420W motor, and 140 AW (air watts) of suction power.Drawing on its track record of solid robot vacuums, the Roborock H6 can automatically detect when it’s on carpet. As such, suction power is increased to the tune of nearly 4000RPM. On hard floors it hums along at 1100RPM with a soft floor brush roller lifting dust and debris.The H6 weighs in at a just three pounds which means it’s also designed for cars, beds, furniture and other hard-to-reach spots.Read the full announcementVizio Elevate Sound BarIf you haven’t been paying close attention, you might assume that Vizio only cares about building high-end TVs with affordable price tags. Nope, it’s been getting increasingly more involved in home theater audio options, too. Its sound bar lineup gets a refresh for 2020, including one which complements its forthcoming OLED TVs.The Elevate Sound Bar features a unique design that allows it sit independently or dock with the new OLED TV. The system includes two-way left, center, and right front speakers that utilize a separate tweeter, as well as dual-midbass drivers, and passive radiators.Additionally, it has a booming wireless 8-inch subwoofer and two satellite surround speakers. The system supports DTS Virtual:X, Dolby Atmos, and DTS:X audio and can automatically rotate itself based on content.Read the full announcementPlugable TBT3-UDZ Docking StationPlugable’s new dock offers 14 physical ports. If you’re looking to maximize space in an office, or go all-out with devices, you’ll love what’s in store. We’re talking seven USB plugs, microSD and SD readers, and 100W PD to host. Yeah, plug whatever you want into it.Thanks to the Titan Ridge platform, users can add two external displays to a single Thunderbolt port (4K, 60Hz). For USB-C it supports two 4K monitors at 30Hz each.Read the full announcementSony Z8HWhile many of us are busy catching up with 4K televisions, Sony is already a step ahead with its second 8K set. Set to launch in 75-inch and 85-inch options, its Z8H is packed to the hilt with a whole array of visual and audio goodies.A new feature makes it so that the entire frame of the TV is used as a tweeter that vibrates the frame. Audio appears to come directly from the screen. And the Sound-From-Picture Reality feature aligns sound to objects, making things feel even more realistic.The Z8H runs Android TV with Google Assistant, Google Play Store, and built-in Chromecast. Sony does put its own interface menus and voice controls on top.The idea of an 85-inch TV is appealing on its own, but when you add in an Android TV experience it gets even better. Then, topping it off with 8K resolution and support for all sorts of wonderful voice assistance? Does it get any better?Read the full announcement

Attracting top tech talent to your company

Talent is everywhere, but why does it seem so hard to find good talent for your company? What are you doing wrong or what are you not doing at all? It seems that technologically advanced graduates are dime a dozen, but how do you recruit them and retain them at your company? Whether you’re a company working with social media marketing or attempting to create the next Microsoft, this article will explore all that as well as include the top tips when it comes to hiring tech talent.Start with internshipsOne of the most pressing problems when it comes to education is that there is no bridge or stepping stone to having a career sans an internship which can sometimes be exploitative. Interns are a great way for a company to fill a position that doesn’t require much experience but requires the knowledge and skills that only a graduate in a certain field is able to achieve. Many companies shy away from collaborating with universities and their placement program because many graduates are only looking to fill their resume or are only interning to complete their degree program. None of these candidates are keen to work on the company and become a part of the business. Very rarely would companies want to take on a newcomer, train them up and have them go on their merry way to another job and repeat the process over and over again. It is time-consuming and quite frankly doesn’t do the company much good in terms of progress. However, one must understand that without this program, there will be no new talent to recruit from. It’s a cycle that forces companies to give back with their time and effort, and students to pay their dues while picking up soft skills on the way. Working together with a university will not ensure that you recruit and retain new employees or budding tech talent but it offers you the opportunity to snap up promising new talent as an early bird. Furthermore, an unpromising intern today could do her rounds and come back with more experience and have more to offer.Hire fresh graduatesIf you aren’t keen on the internship pathway, there is another method to make sure you get the creme de la creme, but this often comes at a high cost. If you aren’t a notable tech company that many people are clamoring to work with, such as Google, Apple, Facebook, etcetera, it might be hard to get students interested because why would they want to waste their honors degree at a small tech company when they could try their hand at any of those aforementioned tech giants? The thing about fresh graduates is that they are all so full of hope and by the time they realize that life isn’t all roses, it might be too late to take up on the university’s offer of a placement at your firm. This is why it’s important to make tiny concessions for the naivete of students. Allow anyone who hasn’t found a job in 12 – 24 months to be granted a placement, even if they haven’t had any prior experience. Understand that the economy is not as it once was, and no experience is just another way of saying they don’t need to unlearn bad habits from a different workplace culture. They are a fresh slate that you can mold. Don’t shy away from the idea that fresh graduates have nothing meaningful to offer. Sometimes, adding a new ingredient might just be what the recipe needs.Understand that there is a deficit of tech talentWith everyone scrambling over the best in an already limited pool of resources, will only exclude the rest trying to get in. A good leader and employer knows that great talent is often headhunted and can be easily led astray by a better job offer. It’s always better to have loyalty than ingenuity. If you are able to foster your new recruit’s talents and abilities, molding her to suit your companies’ needs, it would be worth ten talented recruits with no real love for your company. Treat your employees the way that makes them want to follow you and not the salary or promise of glory. This is something that is lacking in many industries but humans all want to be appreciated, treasured, and respected. Show your employees that you care and fan the flames of their passion. Put them in a position that they desire, with the responsibilities and freedom to do as they please within a reasonable boundary. By procuring happiness in your company for your employees, you’re ensuring loyalty. However, buy them with bribes and promises without offering them happiness, and there’s always the possibility of someone else raising the stakes.EDITOR NOTE: This is a promoted post and should not be viewed as an editorial endorsement.

T-Mobile releases list of devices that will stop working next month

You guys remember the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge? Or how about your good ol’ Nexus 9. Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but soon, you won’t be able to use either of those devices on T-Mobile’s network.Some internal documents from T-Mobile were given to Android Police, stating that they were planning to make some changes to their network starting January 29th, also listing a set of devices that would stop working on T-Mobile at that point due to them not being “able to receive a manufacturer software update”. Here is the full list:Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (AT&T model)Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (Verizon model)Samsung Galaxy Note EdgeHTC Desire 10 LifestyleHTC Desire 650Google Nexus 9Huawei Mate 8Huawei P9Mikrotikls SIA_R11e-LTE6Netgear Arlo Security Camera SystemOnePlus 1Quanta Dragon IR7Samsung Galaxy S5 DuosSony Xperia Z3 CompactSony Xperia Z3Sony Xperia Z3 OrionSony D6616 Xperia Z3 OrionSoyea M02ZTE ZMaxAs I joked about above, these devices are quite old, but if you have any of them running on T-Mobile, you should receive correspondence soon, as well as encouraging you to contact T-Mobile for upgrade options.Update: T-Mobile will provide free replacements for people affected by this change, with customers being able to choose one of four devices: the Samsung Galaxy A21, Samsung Galaxy A11, Alcatel GO FLIP 3, or a T-Mobile REVVL 4.
