🤔 Good morning! Before we get started, you have to guess how much Apple made in iPhone sales in the first three months of the year. just guessing! The answer is below…
Pixy takes a ride
Snap has a tiny camera drone that connects with Snapchat so you can take selfies and video from a perspective that your smartphone can’t reach. it’s called pixie. Excuse me!
- pixie It’s $230, and it’s only available in the US and France for whatever reason.
- It takes off and lands on your hand.
right Now! There is no one better than my colleague Jonathan Fest, Drone Rush boss (and transverse daily power Editor!), to tell you why it matters and why not. Here’s the brawler with the real deal info.
Fun new flying cams are always exciting. The idea of a super portable drone is cool, and the newly announced Snapchat Pixy caught the eye immediately.
However, we are compelled to see this new smartphone-powered camera for what it is: a new entry in a completely failed segment of the drone market, a camera tightly wrapped in the Snapchat ecosystem.
Pixy seems to tick all the boxes for a highly portable drone.
- Like it or not, the Pixy is an aircraft that is subject to FAA rules for all foreign flights in the United States.
- Mid-range mobile camera sensor.
- Removable and rechargeable batteries.
- Very easy to use controls.
- It weighs 101 grams, which means that it avoids the most stringent drone laws.
There’s more to it, and pre-set flight modes limit what you can do with the plane, but the purpose is to take epic selfies, so the options are decent.
Safety is always our first concern Drone Rush. To that end, we should always talk about annoying drone laws (none of the following apply if you fly indoors).
- As mentioned above, the Pixy is an aircraft that is subject to FAA rules for all foreign flights in the United States.
- Meaning by the letter of the law, people must obtain an FAA TRUST (which is a free test, at least, and open to all ages) and obtain permission (There are apps that help).
- The rules are stricter for companies. Pixy has some details here.
- Now that’s out of the way, did you know that there have been dozens of other drones over the years that look and behave exactly the same way as the Pixy?
- The Hover Passport gained enough attention that Apple put it in their stores.
- And the AEE Selfly actually folds into a smartphone case to protect your phone.
- But people have retired from those drones faster than their smartphones.
- However, we look forward to testing Snap Pixy, and hope that the popularity of the social media platform will inspire the next generation of drone pilots. safe trip!
Huawei Mate XS 2 fold launched this morning. I covered what it means a week ago and today a lot of it has been confirmed:
- It is a foldable device, that is, one screen instead of two, with improvements over previous models. More than a design evolution.
- It is powered by the Snapdragon 888, due to Qualcomm’s sourcing limitation affecting Huawei.
- It’s for China only, starting at 9,999 yuan (~$1515) for the 8GB/256GB variant all the way to 12,999 yuan (~$1969) for the 12GB/512GB high-end model.
- Expect more to come: It is very likely that our team will want to get their hands on the latest mods from Huawei.
also: The Huawei Band 7 and Watch GT 3 Pro launched.
😬 OnePlus Nord N20 Review: Better hardware, decent battery life, but poor touches, fingerprint reader, camera performance, mono speaker is bad while software update mode is bad (Android salad).

📈 Apple announces the best March quarter ever With new records for iPhone and Mac, although some iPads are slowing down due to the supply chain. Basically, Apple has made nearly $100 billion so far this year, already, $50 billion of that from the iPhone. Crazy, but for Apple, totally normal. (the edge).
📦 Amazon Prime Day 2022 It’s now set for July, again in a 48-hour window, but the exact day hasn’t been confirmed yet (Android Authority).
🐶 Is dog behavior hereditary?? A team of researchers found: Not really, with a few exceptions. Also, there is a nice picture of Samoyed (Ars Technica).
