Hey, good morning!
The week begins, but kind of doesn't, as most of us are enjoying a three-day weekend. To celebrate, we're reporting on the best phones to drop on the floor (well, you know what I mean), BBQ upgrades for Engadget readers and amateur pitmasters, as well as the potential for facial recognition to save primates.
Ted Dabney, who co-founded Atari along with Nolan Bushnell, has died after deciding against treatment for esophageal cancer. He and Bushnell created Atari's predecessor Syzygy in 1971 and produced Computer Space, the first commercially available arcade game. They then used that experience as the launching pad for Atari and, along with developer Al Alcorn, released the iconic game Pong in 1972.
Dropping a bunch of phones for the sake of journalism.
Ready for BBQ season and looking for a upgrade? The Timberline series does its job well and actually puts its app and WiFi connectivity to great use. The technology here is more than just a gimmick. However, the $1,700+ price means it's for amateur pitmasters rather than casual backyard cookouts.
But wait, there's more...
