Motorola this week started selling a brand new Moto Mod for
its Moto Z series of smartphones. Called Moto Folio, the new accessory is currently
priced at just $11.24, thus being the cheapest Moto Mod to date.
Basically, the Moto Folio is nothing more than a protective
case with an inner pocket for a card (or your ID). However, this is part of the
Moto Mod family because it attaches to your Moto Z via the phone’s rear magnetic
connectors – just like any other Moto Mod.
When the Moto Folio is on, your Moto Z will gain 55 grams in
weight and 3.5 mm in thickness. The case …

Nokia today started selling the Steel HR, a hybrid wearable device
that combines the elegance of an analog watch with (some of) the features of a
smartwatch. Available to pre-order since November, the Nokia Steel HR isn’t

first announced last year, shortly after Nokia acquired Withings.
Unlike regular smartwatches, which usually have full digital
displays, the Steel HR only has a small digital screen, the rest of its front
being analog. The watch comes with a heart rate sensor and activity tracking
Many developers must update their apps and games to support Apple’s new iPhone X due to the unusual display of the smartphone. Niantic announced recently it has issued such an update for the ever popular Pokemon GO game.
In fact, Niantic released two updates for each of the game’s platform version: Android and iOS. The iOS update brings support for the iPhone X screen resolution and some optimizations for this specific device. However, along with the addition of iPhone X compatibility, the developers removed support for devices running iOS 8.
Other changes …
While Apple’s new iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X have fast charging circuitry built in, they ship with regular chargers that take more than two hours to top up an iPhone 8, for example. Apple does offer a fast 29W USB-C Power Adapter that will load your iPhone 50% in 30 minutes flat, but that one will cost you $49 extra.
A virtual ruler? Check! An interactive furniture designer? Sure thing! An augmented car showroom? You bet!

Alas, the game becomes ad-supported now, which might drive those who already paid for it literally crazy. Then again, the advertisements …
