One of the new screen effects that has come along with iOS 11 is ”Echo,” which floods the recipient’s screen with countless copies of your message, all swirling around for a few seconds. It’s a fun effect, and here’s how you’ll activate it.

IKEA shows off wireless charging furniture for iPhone 8, iPhone X

In the wake of iPhone 8, IKEA wants to remind us all that its products have had Qi wireless charging capabilities since 2015.

IKEA, the world’s largest furniture retailer, launched its new ad campaign today just in time for the release of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, the first iPhones to adhere to the Qi wireless charging standard. The campaign — created by IKEA and famed advertising company ACNE— very pointedly caters directly to Apple users with sayings that play on Apple slogans such as ”This changes everything” and ”Think different.”

IKEA introduced its Qi wireless charging products all the way back in 2015, and offers freestanding wireless chargers as well as furniture with the chargers already built in. The company also gives customers the option to embed its JYSSEN wireless charger into any nearly any item they’d like in order to allow for a completely tailored experience. The specific items the ads focus on, though, are IKEA’s RIGGAD work lamp and VARV table lamp, b…

The iPhone X Portends a More Accessible Future

How does the iPhone X integrate with accessibility?

Apple is hailing the forthcoming iPhone X as ”the future” of the smartphone. And futuristic it is: It has an edge-to-edge display, wireless charging, facial recognition, augmented reality, and is driven almost completely by gestures. As with so many of the products to come out of Cupertino, to own an iPhone X is to own a piece of the future today.

I was in the audience at the glistening Steve Jobs Theater as Phil Schiller blitzed through the equally impressive iPhone 8 only to return to the stage moments later to discuss the iPhone X. As its features were being explained and demonstrated, one thought that persisted in my mind was how accessible this glimpse of the future is going to be. The iPhone X, in some ways, is a radical departure from the iPhone we’ve come to know and love for a decade now, and surely accessibility is going to be a question.

Apple says iPhone X isn’t shipping until November 3, and I had only about a minute…

Wicked Audio Endo headphones review: You pay for what you get

You see Wicked Audio headphones everywhere you go. Are they any good?

Wicked Audio headphones seem to be everywhere — Best Buy, HMV (R.I.P), Walmart — you name the place, and you’ve probably seen one type of Wicked Audio headphones or another. I’ve long been curious about the quality of these cans, but was a little gun-shy about grabbing a pair.

Wicked Audio sent me the Endo on-ear Bluetooth headphones to try out. Here’s how they shape up.

I’ve been using the Wicked Audio Endo headphones connected via Bluetooth to my Samsung Galaxy S8 and my 2015 iMac.

The sound

Let’s get (arguably) the most important part out of the way — these things sound pretty good. I don’t consider myself an extreme audiophile (I do look at speaker sensitivity and that sort of thing, but I’m not a snob about it), but I do like my headphones to sound great, and these aren’t quite there.

That being said, they’re by no means terrible. The bass is present and rather warm, but the rest of the…

Verizon’s AR scavenger hunt could lead you to a free iPhone 8

Verizon is offering individuals in eight U.S. cities the chance to win an iPhone 8 in a today-only event, but they’re going to have to work for it scavenger hunt style.

If you’ve been on the fence about forking over the cash for an iPhone 8 with the iPhone X looming impressively on the horizon, you may be able to get a free one through Verizon … if you can find it, that is. Today the mobile carrier is hosting a Snapchat-based AR scavenger hunt for those who live in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Seattle.

Interested in joining in? First, you have to open Snapchat and scan this code. Then you’ll be given clues on the location of a virtual iPhone 8. There’s a catch to this: not only do you have to arrive at the right location, you have to be there at the right time. According to Verizon’s ”Find the 8″ page, some iPhones ”are only revealed in the rain and others only come out at sunset.” On top of all of that, once you actually find th…
