  • 2020 Apple iPad Pro Adds Trackpad Support, LiDAR Sensor, And More

“Your next computer is not a computer,” that’s the messaging Apple is using in their marketing copy for the new iPad Pro. That’s right, the productivity-focused tablet is now being touted as a full-fledged laptop replacement.

We know, the whole point of “Pro” tablets have always been to serve as a viable alternative to laptops and desktops. This time around, though, Apple seems to be going further than ever, integrating elements that seek to bridge that gap between tablets and laptops. Do they succeed? Not really, especially with how locked down Apple’s ecosystem is, but with this iteration, the tablet is definitely evolving closer into a potential successor, especially for folks whose work don’t involve much resource-intensive tasks.

The Apple iPad Pro gets the outfit’s Liquid Retina display, which boasts advanced tech like variable refresh rates from 24Hz to 120Hz, True Tone auto-adjustments, and a wide color gamut. It’s fully laminated, with a low 1.8 percent reflectivity and 600 nits of brightness, making it perfectly viewable even under direct sunlight. The tablet comes in two screen sizes: 11 inches and 12.9 inches, with the former getting a 2388 x 1668 resolution and the latter getting 2732 x 2048. Other than the display size, both variants get the same specs everywhere else.

That includes two cameras in the rear, namely a 10 megapixel ultra-wide sensor and a 12 megapixel wide angle shooter, as well as a front-facing TrueDepth camera for all those FaceTime conversations you’re going to have with clients, co-workers, and colleagues. They also throw in five “studio-quality” mics and four-speaker audio to ensure those FaceTime conversations actually end up being productive. For the first time, Apple is even throwing in a LiDAR scanner into the iPad Pro, which measures reflected light from up to five meters away, allowing it to measure depth in conjunction with the cameras, motion sensors, and OS frameworks.

The Apple iPad Pro uses the outfit’s eight-core A12Z Bionic chip, allowing it to handle 4K video editing, 3D design, and similar resource-intensive tasks, while an enhanced thermal design allows you to engage in these tasks for sustained periods without having the darn thing overheat. It’s also the first iPad to get trackpad support, although the experience isn’t quite the same as that on laptops, since the iPad still won’t have a cursor. Instead, the OS will highlight various UI elements as you swipe through the trackpad, which actually seems like a much better implementation, as it won’t require the pinpoint accuracy required when working on laptops. You can take advantage of the trackpad support by picking up the optional Magic Keyboard cover, which now includes an integrated trackpad and a USB-C slot for pass-through charging.


The Apple iPad Pro starts at $799 for the 128GB WiFi-only 11-inch model and $999 for a 12.9-incher with similar specs. Those prices get higher, of course, once you opt for more storage (up to 1TB) and LTE, which is supposedly 60 percent faster on the new devices. The Magic Keyboard costs $299 for the 11-inch model and $349 for the 12.9-inch model.

reMarkable 2 Is An E-Paper Device For Writing, Reading, And Drawing

 

A couple of years ago, a new type of e-paper device came out – one that allowed users to write onscreen, instead of merely reading from it, allowing you to use it like a digital notebook that’s a lot gentler on the eyes compared to traditional tablets. This year, that device gets an update in the form of the reMarkable 2.

Billed as a “paper tablet,” the device is meant to feel like regular paper, all while being able to digitally store all your notes and printed matter. That way, you can have years’ worth of notes, thoughts, and ideas all accessible from a single screen that won’t strain your eyes the way tablets, laptops, and other LCD-based devices normally would.

The reMarkable 2 is a 10.3-inch tablet with a monochrome digital paper display (1872 x 1404 resolution), so this is strictly a black-and-white screen (no grayscale shades, either). While that doesn’t sound so good, you have to keep in mind, it’s meant to be used for writing notes and reading books – two things that don’t actually suffer on a purely monochrome display. In fact, using such a simple display should allow it to have faster refresh rates, which is necessary to make writing feel natural on e-paper devices. As with your usual e-paper panels, it works with no glare or backlighting, making it extremely readable under sunlight with no brightness adjustments necessary.

The display has multi-point capacitive touch support, so you can navigate through notes, books, and other reading materials using your fingers, much like you do when reading from a traditional tablet. To make writing easier, the device comes with its own stylus, which boasts a high-friction pen tip for precision writing, tilt detection, and 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. We know, pressure sensitivity seems more useful for a drawing tablet rather than one meant for writing, but if you want to sketch out designs and draw charts, it could prove a really helpful feature. The stylus, by the way, snaps magnetically to the side of the device, so you can keep them together at all times.

The reMarkable 2 is powered by a 1.2GHz dual core ARM processor and 1GB of DDR3 RAM, which should pack enough muscle to handle all the writing, reading, and sketching you’re going to do on this thing. It has 8GB of internal storage, which, the outfit claims, is enough to let you save around 100,000 pages of written material. Need to write more because you’re a compulsive note taker? Not a problem, since you can move some of your data to a PC, phone, or tablet instead, which you can do either via Wi-Fi or USB-C.

The tablet comes with built-in text conversion, which allows it to convert your written notes into digital text files if you’d prefer reading a cleaner, typed-out version of everything you write down, as well as ways to organize, annotate, search, and share your files to multiple platforms. For ebook reading, by the way, it only supports two formats: PDF and ePub, so those who want to read Amazon books on here may want to convert it to the latter format first (the free software Calibre is really good at that). It runs on Codex, the Linux-based operating system custom-designed for low-latency digital paper displays.

The reMarkable 2 is now available for preorder, with a June ship date. Price is $399.

• Microsoft Xbox Series X Brings True 4K Gaming At Up To 120 Fps

When Microsoft first debuted the next-generation Xbox months ago, people’s opinions were split down the middle. Vertical towers aren’t exactly the norm for home game consoles, after all. This time around, the outfit has released the specs for the Microsoft Xbox Series X and, regardless of your feelings for its size and form factor, opinions are most likely going to be unanimous: this thing is a powerhouse.

As everyone expected, this will be Microsoft’s most powerful console hardware, bringing 12 teraflops of power and true 4K gaming at up to 120 fps, all while being capable enough to be ready for the 8K standard that’s probably on the horizon. Yes, we can’t imagine ourselves upgrading to an 8K TV anytime soon, either, but a lot of people said the same thing about 4K and look at everyone’s living rooms now.

The Microsoft Xbox Series X gets an eight-core 3.8GHz AMD Zen 2 processor, which has one of its cores set aside for basic system functions, so everything can run smoothly in the background while you immerse yourself in your games, as well as a custom AMD RDNA 2 GPU with 12 teraflops and 52 compute units, each one clocked at 1.825GHz. According to the outfit, this should lead to much higher visual detail and framerates, likely putting its graphical performance on par with some high-end gaming desktops. They pair this processing unit with 16GB of GDDR6 RAM, with 10GB of that getting a GPU-friendly 560GB/s bandwidth. This means, those games that rely on fast memory operations will benefit greatly here.

The console will also support hardware-boosted ray-tracing (the first ever console to do so), so developers can make even more realistic graphics using the rendering technique for lighting, shadows, and reflections. No word, though, on how many developers actually plan to take advantage of this, but it will be interesting to see the results for those that do.

The Microsoft Xbox Series X will come with a 1TB SSD that takes advantage of the console’s new architecture, which allows it to make 100GB of in-game content immediately accessible, which should lead to significant improvement in load times, especially for high-resource games with massive open worlds. This also helps with a Quick Resume feature that lets you jump between multiple games without having to close and relaunch, so you can take a break from a single-player title to a quick multiplayer battle and back with little wasted time in between. Since 1TB won’t be enough to hold even a dozen of today’s AAA games, the console comes with support for 1TB expansion cards that, the outfit claims, will deliver the same performance as the built-in SSD.

 

The controller, by the way, will also be compatible with the current Xbox One, along with all of the console’s accessories, so you don’t have to switch gamepads to go from one console to another. Other features include a 4K Blu-Ray drive, vapor chamber cooling, and HDMI 2.1 support. And yes, the console can be set down on its side, in case you’re not a fan of the upright tower position.

The Microsoft Xbox Series X is slated to hit shelves in the coming holiday season.

 

Desklab: This Portable 4K Monitor Works With Laptops, Smartphones, And Handheld Consoles

The more people work on portable machines like laptops and tablets, the more their limitations come to the fore. For one, the small display is rarely enough to let you see everything you want at the same time. That’s why in recent years, we’ve seen numerous attempts at portable monitors that give digital nomads a chance to work with a second screen without being tied down to a desk. As far as those products go, the Desklab is one of the more interesting ones we’ve seen.

Like other portable monitors, the display can be hooked up to your laptop, giving you a second screen that you can use to extend your digital workspace. Unlike them, the darn thing isn’t just designed for laptops and desktops, as it can also function as a larger screen for smartphones, tablets, and handheld consoles, all while serving as a traditional monitor when you use them at home or in the office.

The Desklab is a 15.6-inch touchscreen monitor, making it small enough to carry in the same bag you use to transport your laptop and computing supplies. It has 4K resolution, so you can see any video or image with the sharpest available detail, allowing you to edit multimedia projects with complete visual clarity. Equipped with both an HDMI slot and a USB-C port, the display works out of the box with both Windows and OSX machines, as well as smartphones, tablets, and any other device that outputs using either standard. When connected to a mobile device, you can interact with it using the monitor’s touchscreen interface, so you can tap on the larger icons and buttons instead of the tiny ones on your phone or tablet.

It has a 183-degree viewing angle and a 1200:1 contrast ratio, which should make it easy to see what’s onscreen, regardless of whether you’re working indoors or outdoors, although screen brightness tops out at 400 cd/m2, which may be high for an indoor monitor, but far from the highest for a machine you’ll be using outdoors. For comparison, the 13-inch MacBook Pro has a display brightness of 580 cd/m2. With that said, the outfit claims this is actually brighter than most portable monitors in the market today.

 

The Desklab has a built-in magnetic kickstand for setting it down on a desk, although it appears to be strictly limited to landscape mode, since it doesn’t look like it can stand safely on the side without the use of a separate tablet stand. That kickstand, by the way, doubles as a screen protector, which you can use to cover the display during transit. It comes with dual speakers, so you can play audio right from the screen if the laptop’s tinny drivers are not quite enough to your liking, as well as a 3.5mm headphone slot, so you can still keep using a wired headphone, in case you have one of those new laptops that permanently ditched it.

Want one? The Desklab is available now, priced at $399.

 

Bring Illumination To Your EDC Kit With These Cool Portable Lighting Tools

Every EDC kit needs proper lighting tools – you just never know when a power outage, a nighttime roadside emergency, or some other situation will require the use of a flashlight, a task light, or some other illuminating device. If you’re looking to add some to your EDC stash, this small selection of portable lighting gear should make a good place to start.

ThruNite Archer 2A V3

Arguably one of the best compact flashlights in the market today, it combines a rich set of features at a very affordable price, making it a great addition to anyone’s EDC kit. Granted, it’s not the smallest flashlight at nearly seven inches long, but it’s definitely worth carrying if you have room for it in your bag, pouch, or glove compartment, . Plus, it has a clip, so you can hang it on your belt, pocket, and a whole load of other places.

Powered by two AA batteries that can last it 40 hours at full brightness, the flashlight can blast a strong 500 lumens that easily illuminate objects hundreds of feet away, all while offering a decent range of brightness settings and lighting modes. We do wish there were a few more brightness levels (such as half-strength), although limiting it does make cycling through the various settings quicker, leaving it a lot easier to use.

VSSL Mini Cache

More than a simple flashlight, this multi-function device has a four-mode LED light on one end, a precision compass on the other, and plenty of storage for even smaller gear inside its body. The outfit claims the aluminum enclosure is indestructible and watertight, so you can take it along in your most rugged adventures, while a carabiner clip at the compass end makes it easy to carry during transport and hang on a hook when you’re chilling in camp.

 

Strike Concepts BAMFF Tactical Flashlight

cool lighting tools edc kit pic11

A dual-LED flashlight, this compact lighting tool comes with both floodlight and spotlight modes, complete with a clever option to engage both at the same time. That’s right, you can both a floodlight and a spotlight at the same time, allowing you to simultaneously get maximum spread and throw, so you can see what you’re looking for a whole lot quicker.

Designed with versatile function in mind, it comes with an onboard battery that you can recharge on a USB outlet, although it also works with AAA cells for those times you don’t have a power outlet in sight. It comes in five variants, ranging from 200 lumens to 1000 lumens, all of which come in at well under a hundred bucks.

 

StreamLight KeyMate

Just want a small flashlight you can carry on a fob with the rest of your keys? Maybe try this small LED that’s actually shaped like one of your keys. It only brings 35 lumens, so it won’t put a whole lot of illumination in your arsenal, but for close quarters lighting and emergency use, this thing should offer all the brightness you could possibly need.  At maximum brightness, the darn thing can run for up to an hour on a full charge of the rechargeable battery, while the water-resistant and impact-resistant shell should keep it running should be rugged enough to fend off daily hazards with nothing more than a shrug.

 

FlipBelt Million Mile Light V2

cool lighting tools edc kit pic6

Designed for runners, this 30-lumen clip light can be mounted to your clothing to keep you visible during night runs. Do note, it only lights up in a pulsating sequence, so it can’t be used as an area light in close quarters settings. That pulsing brightness, though, makes it potentially viable as a warning light or an SOS light for emergency situations. The best part? It doesn’t require batteries, as the LEDs are completely motion-powered, so you can keep it going as long as you keep moving.

 

Petzl Actik Core

cool lighting tools edc kit pic7

Much as we appreciate the usefulness of rechargeable headlamps, you have to admit: losing charge in the middle of a hike is a whole lot of trouble. That’s why we prefer lighting gear that can be charged as many ways as possible. The Actik Core has a built-in battery rated to last up to 16 hours, although it can also be powered using three AAA cells, so you can easily switch to those batteries in your pack as soon as it’s needed. Bringing 450 lumens, it packs a whole lot of brightness, too, although it’s restricted to a spotlight pattern, so you can’t use it as a floodlight when doing work around camp. Yes, it’s a little light on features compared to some options out there, but the dual power source capability more than makes up for it.

 

StonePoint LED Emergency Beacon

cool lighting tools edc kit pic8


A must-have item in any road emergency kit, this LED beacon provides a highly-visible warning light that you can put on the road while you’re fixing your car, alerting oncoming motorists up to two miles away of your presence, so they can slow down and steer out of your way. It’s a much safer option than traditional magnesium flares, all while being water-resistant, so you can use it in wet weather, and crush-proof up to 6,000 pounds, allowing it to keep running even with cars driving over it. Comes in sets of three.

 

BioLite Powerlight Mini

cool lighting tools edc kit pic9

This multi-purpose flood light, which has four white LEDs and three red LEDs, has a kickstand in the back that you can use it to set it on top of any flat surface for use as a work light. That same kickstand allows it to be clipped to your shirt’s chest pocket for both work light use and illuminating the way at night, along with clipping to a whole host of other things (like clotheslines and rails) to bring light to your camp at night. They even include a rear bike mount, so you can use it as a tail light. It has a 1300 mAh battery that can keep the LEDs running for up to five hours at the maximum brightness setting, all while doubling as a power bank, in case your phone has drained and badly needs a charge.

 

Slughaus Bullet 02

cool lighting tools edc kit pic10


They call it the world’s smallest flashlight. While we don’t know if that’s an accurate statement, this ultra-tiny keychain light can deliver 20 lumens of lighting in a tiny enclosure that you power up using a twist-switch mechanism. It boasts a gold-plated spring to maximize pressure when you twist, a rubber O-ring to repel water, a durable build that can withstand high amounts of pressure, and three LR41 batteries that can keep it running for up to 18 hours.
