perth_map

If there was any takeaway in Apple's big iPhone unveiling on Wednesday, it's that buying an Apple handset is really expensive. We got to test the phone out in person, and reckon the display (which lands right in the middle, size-wise, of the iPhone Xs and Xs Max ) might not reach the dizzying heights of OLED, but it remains a attractive smartphone display in its own right.

With Sphero Bolt, The Colorado Startup Doubles Down On Education

perth_map

An equally interesting thing about Sphero Bolt is the four new infrared sensors.
