Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.
Welcome to your weekend! There are some new details about Apple's credit card to pore over and an appropriately tricked-out SUV from Razer. Also, we'll recap some of last week's most popular stories like the contact lenses that zoom in and Sony's wearable air conditioner.
As far as branded cars go, Razer's NIO ES6 doesn't look half-bad. If you weren't familiar with the company, it might just look like another tricked-out car from a geek with too much money. It's also a capable electric SUV, with 544hp of power and the ability to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds. However, NIO is only going to make 88 of these custom SUVs for sale in China, where they'll cost about $67k.
Do you really need a reason to walk around the store for a few hours pressing buttons?
Sony might have a way to beat the heat, if you can wait for it. The company's First Flight crowdfunding platform has launched a wearable "air conditioner," the Reon Pocket. It slips into a pouch on custom-made clothes like tees and sits at the base of your neck, using the Peltier effect to cool you off, all without bulk or noise.
The Apple Card terms are pretty standard -- similar to some other cards, purchasing any kind of "cash equivalent" like cryptocurrency is prohibited -- but there are some specific items. That you'll need an Apple ID is pretty obvious, and it requires that you enable two-factor authentication. Also, modifying your Apple device or jailbreaking could make it ineligible to access your card account.
As editor-in-chief Dana Wollman explains: "In addition to top picks in 11 categories -- everything from laptops to smartphones to gaming and dorm gear -- we went big on tips and buying advice this year. We didn't just want to tell you what to buy, but we wanted to help you choose wisely, and then make the most out of whatever you chose."
Oppo showed off a prototype device packing a "waterfall screen," which features an aggressive 88-degree fold on both the left and right sides. When viewed directly from the front, the bezels are practically invisible.
