There is no doubt that GoPro have forever changed the face of home videos. In fact they’ve revolutionised the face of filming to such an extent that you can film anything, anywhere, whenever you like. In HD. Gone are the days of scratchy, out of focus films limited to your back garden because the power cord only has a 2m reach. For the dudes at GoPro the world constituted more than just their backyards and they wanted to film it. Whether in the air, on the ground or under the water, the new GoPro HERO 4 will film anything from leisure to extreme activities in supreme quality. Check out the promo video for it.
Apple have had an interesting two weeks. Firstly they launched the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus (read about it here) and then they launched their Apple Watch (read about it here), which looks awesome! Late last week they made their new operating system – iOS 8 – available for download and I am busy downloading it as I type this. On the surface, the new operating system is very similar to its predecessor except – as expected – Apple have ironed out a few kinks which existed with iOS 7 and have added some cool new features. New operating system’s usually spell the end of your phone’s battery life, so I am quite interested to see what happens once this iOS 8 has downloaded and I have installed it. Here is a great video from Tech Smartt, reviewing what is new with the new iOS 8.
It’s been quite the week for leaked images. Firstly there were the provocatively NSFW pictures of Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton, which had the intraweb doing backflips whilst the most recent images of the new iPhone 6 seem to be the most plausible images of the phone yet. As with most tech leaks, we’re never quite sure of the legitimacy of the images, however, in this case the chaps at Feld & Volk – an association, consisting of artists and engineers, who create unique devices developed on the basis of iPhone and iPad – have released a video of the iPhone in someone’s hands. Seems legit. I suppose.
