Why The Apple Watch Series 7 Redesign Has Me Worried

DIGITAL NEWS
After holding the iPhone 12 Pro for a year, and really preferring it wrapped in a case, I’m very worried about the Apple Watch Series 7 and what is being described as a “dramatic change in design.” The rumor is that the Series 7 will replicate the most distinctive design elements of the iPhone 12 series, the iPad Pro, and the Mac Mini M1 — flat sides and squared-off edges. The Apple Watch Series 6, which shares its design with the Apple Watch Series 4 and Series 5, is almost exactly right in terms of proportions, size, shape, and weight, making it immensely comfortable to wear, while the jewel-like curved case works in all situations and with all outfits. Moving away from the flowing lines may impact all of this,…

Bose Updates Its Top End With QuietComfort 45

Bose Updates Its Top End With QuietComfort 45

DIGITAL NEWS
Bose today unveiled its new QuietComfort 45 headphones — the successors to the highly popular QuietComfort 35 II. Bose is trumpeting simplicity with this new upgrade. The QC45 have just two settings — “Quiet” and “Aware.” Quiet mode is what you’d normally call active noise cancellation, using microphones inside and outside the ear cups to blot out anything other than what you’re wanting to hear from the headphones themselves. And Bose says that the transition from noise to nil is down to a fraction of a millisecond. The Aware mode allows for full sound transparency, where you can hear everything going on outside the headphones as well as what’s being pumped through them. The simplicity transfers into the controls as well. There’s a single button on the left earcup to…

China to Study Building 1 Kilometer-Long Spacecraft

DIGITAL NEWS
The Chinese government is inviting scientists to help build an enormous, 1 kilometer (0.6 miles) long spacecraft that it wants to construct in orbit.

The Best Games Like Final Fantasy

The Best Games Like Final Fantasy

DIGITAL NEWS
The Final Fantasy series has spanned decades, with the 16th mainline title announced, plus dozens of spinoff titles across dozens of consoles. The series was one of the first to establish many of the conventions JRPGs would be known for, but also revolutionizing on those systems with nearly every installment. It isn’t just the combat that made this series so popular for all this time, though. The story, worlds, and characters have kept players invested for hundreds of hours. While Final Fantasy remains the biggest name in the JRPG market, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of other high quality games that have a similar feel to these classic adventures. Whether you like the classic turn based battles, more action focused titles, or just want a gripping story to sink…
