Last month, we passed along some of the specs that put the max into the Xiaomi Mi Max 3. A new render showing what is allegedly the back of the Mi Max 3 has surfaced, and it reveals that the device will be equipped with a dual camera setup on back, along with a fingerprint scanner. It also shows that the handset will be offered in three different colors including one black and two different shades of blue.
The Mi Max 3 features a 7-inch full-screen display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. We could see a resolution of 1080 x 2160. The primary snapper on back is believed to weigh in at 12MP, …
In recent times, we’ve been hearing a lot about faulty batteries. Li-Ion cells have always had the occasional lemon, which will have a chance to melt down — and it’s a bummer when it happens to your device. But with the increasing amount of smartphone users around the world, and with phone manufacturers trying to cram larger capacity batteries into tighter devices, it’s no surprise that this is now… a hot topic.
Additionally, Apple has come under scrutiny for the way it handled the aging batteries in its own iPhones — it throttled performance to reduce the strain on a degraded battery. …

Putting aside how basic wearing Uggs makes you look, people love the boots because they’re warm and comfy. But did you know the fleece-lined boots will alsoprevent you from entering an airport lounge?
Yeah, we had no idea either.
The Human League singer Joanne Catherall learned about this unusual dress code violation after trying to enter a Qantas lounge at Melbourne Airport while wearing the boots.
There’s a hole in Wi-Fi security, and it affects the vast majority of Wi-Fi devices and networks. That very likely means your phone, your home wireless network, your wireless network at work — everything.
Belgian security researcher Mathy Vanhoef from the imec-DistriNet research group at the KU Leuven university has discovered a vulnerability in the WPA2 security protocol, used by nearly every Wi-Fi device out there. It allows an attacker to remotely extract decrypted data from a protected Wi-Fi network without knowing the password.
This recap contains spoilers for Outlander Season 3, episode 3, “All Debts Paid.”
Episode 3 of Outlander Season 3 is a pretty big deal for fans of Diana Gabaldon’s novels: Not only does it reintroduce a pivotal character in Lord John William Grey (all grown up and decidedly more dashing than the last time we saw him in Season 2), but also closes the chapter on Claire and Frank’s tumultuous relationship in surprisingly poignant fashion.
While the show has to omit or streamline countless plot points from the novels in the adaptation process — including cutting Jamie’s trip to seals’ isle (although perhaps we’ll see it later in flashback) and the many prickly layers of his complicated relationship with Lord John, for the most part, Outlander’s writers do an admirable job of staying faithful to the emotional arcs that drive Gabaldon’s novels. That’s especially true of episode 3, written by Matthew B. Roberts, which takes our heroes on a believable and equally effective journey, even if the signposts are a little different along the way.

After a woman in Pensacola, Florida discovered a golden orb weaver (a type of spider) in her home, she decided to relocate it to a “more appropriate location” — one that we assume is not inside a house.
But before being subjected to relocation, the spider decided to crawl around on the woman’s face. Surprisingly, the woman seemed fairly cool with that, a reaction to which I absolutely cannot relate. (To be fair, it’s not a particularly aggressive spider and does have a low-risk bite, but … still.)
Here’s hoping this yellow friend has now woven a beautiful circular web somewhere in the Great Outdoors. Read more…
It’s a rare sight nowadays that a manufacturer would stuff a massive battery in a smartphone. Usually, such an act means compromising a phone’s slim profile. But, just 3 months ago, manufacturer Vernee showed us that we can get the best of both worlds with its midrange Thor E phone, which had a 5,200 mAh cell, but still retained a relatively …
