BlackBerry Motion presented as "unstoppable" in new promo video

Announced in early October as the first dust- and
water-resistant BlackBerry phone ever, the all-touch BlackBerry Motion is not yet
available in the US.
But we assume the handset will be launched stateside soon, as BlackBerry Mobile
keeps on releasing promo videos showcasing its features.


The newest BlackBerry Motion promo video – embedded above –
presents the smartphone as being “unstoppable” and “made to live
in the real world.” That’s because, besides dust- and water-resistance,
the handset offers a “premium anti-scratch” screen (a 5.5-inch panel
with 1080 x 1920 pixels), …

It is real: a hands-on with the Essential Phone, presented by Andy Rubin

So, the Essential Phone was just revealed yesterday and it has some cool things going on about it. Titanium and ceramc build, a 360-degree accessory camera, an all-screen front, so on and so forth — it’s definitely a head-turner. But we didn’t get to see any live footage of the handset, just renders.

Today, Essential founder Andy Rubin sat down with Recode to show and talk about the product he is so proud of. He discusses the titanium build, the magnetic connector on the back, why the Essential modules might be better than the Moto Mods, the 360-degree camera, and other tidbits.

NASA Presented EPIC Video Shows Dark side of the Moon

NASA on Wednesday released an animation that shows the moon’s dark side as it transits the Earth.


Although the primary mission of NASA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) is to to monitor solar winds, the satellite is also doing a great job of letting all of us Earth-bound creatures see beautiful views of our own planet. The latest images from DSCOVR not only offer a stunning view of Earth, they also provide an “epic” view of the moon.

NASA on Wednesday released an animation that shows the moon’s dark side as it transits the Earth — a rare site for all us non-astronauts indeed. The animation was created with a series of images obtained from DSCOVR’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) camera and telescope. The images were taken between 3:50 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. ET on July 16 and show the moon moving over the Pacific Ocean near North America.

DSCOVR is located one million miles away from Earth and is meant to serve as an early warning system of sorts when harmful solar activity is heading our way.

In addition to capturing great images of our own space rock, the EPIC camera aboard the craft “will be used in science applications to measure ozone amounts, aerosol amounts, cloud height and phase, vegetation properties, hotspot land properties and UV radiation estimates at Earth’s surface,” according to NASA. The camera snaps a full-color image of our planet every day, and once every few months, it’s lucky enough to catch the moon when it is directly between Earth and the craft.
