Give up, society, there’s a selfie stick slap bracelet

I’m certain that by this point, you’ve come across a selfie stick in your daily life. Whether it’s tourists or annoying teenagers, they’ve become ubiquitous (much to my dismay). And just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, I came across the Pop Stick selfie stick slap bracelet. Basically, it’s a Bluetooth-enabled bracelet that uncurls into a selfie stick. You know, so you can bring your selfie stick wherever you go in a convenient and portable fashion.

Asus caters to camera pros and selfie maniacs with ZenFlash and LolliFlash

To no one’s surprise, Asus launched the highly anticipated Zenfone 2 in its homeland, pricing it very sensibly, even in a 4 GB RAM configuration. The unexpected parts of the recent Taiwan introduction event were two never-before-seen camera accessories headed to stores in a matter of weeks.

Lenovo gives smartphone/camera hybrids a shot with the Vibe Shot

It’s a handsome albeit quirky-looking smartphone. No, it’s a point-and-shoot digital camera. No, it’s a professional smart cam. A top-shelf cameraphone? A freakish crossover device of sorts? Actually, it’s all that, and more. It’s Lenovo’s Vibe Shot, targeted at shutterbugs seeking the best of both worlds, as well as a standout “accessory”. Now, the Vibe more »


An ode & a review of “Solo Stick” by the Millennial who won’t get off your lawn

Ah, the #selfie. If there’s a more culturally relevant Millennial invention, I have yet to find it. The selfie changed the game, down to the very fundamentals of humanity. CES 2015 was the land of bifurcated tech gurus. One half patrolled the show floor with a selfie stick taking awesome, wide-angle shots of themselves in front more »

4 instant photo alternatives for the nostalgic romantic in you

The days of Polaroid are far enough behind us so I’m officially declaring the 2010s the age of grunge nostalgia. The 80s and 90s were objectively balls-to-the-wall average, essentially the quiet desk-jokey of the decades, but that didn’t stop Kate Moss and Angelina Jolie from making it look awesome. Thanks to them and, in many parts, to Taylor Swift, more »

Rethinking photography (As a soulless millennial)

I rifled through my parents’ basement earlier this week in search of something– I can’t remember what– and stumbled upon the proverbial shoeboxes full of pictures. Rows of prints, stacks of Polaroids, and envelopes of negatives filled 10-or-so boxes buried behind the standard pile of old laptops and VCRs. So, of course, I spent hours sitting on more »

Suddenly, selfie sticks

I write for a technology website. I’m on top of the tech news pretty much every day of my life. And I hadn’t heard of “selfie sticks” until a week or so ago. It’s a product simple yet so, so silly: A long metal stick that holds your smartphone or camera, so you can hold more »

HTC slices RE Camera price to just $100 for both Black Friday and Cyber Monday

As expected, the lukewarm critical reception of HTC’s quirky little RE Camera likely translated into paltry box-office numbers so far. Otherwise, there would be no reason for the pipe-like shooter’s makers to already take a whopping half off RE’s price. A sudden spurt of generosity could be another possible explanation, we guess, but we’ve stopped more »
