If you installed the May 2022 cumulative update on Windows 11, you might have noticed that many of the apps you use all the time aren’t working as they used to.

DJI Mini 3 Pro review: Small size, big features

161007-drones-review-dji-mini-3-pro-review-image44-h1xp5nd3gb-2

The Mini 3 Pro is an entirely different beast from what we’ve seen previously from DJI, shelling the entry-level tag of its predecessors and offering a truly compelling option for all comers. With the original Mavic Mini, released back in 2019, DJI produced an impressive video and photography drone that fell into the all-important sub-250g weight category required to bypass drone restrictions. To do so, though, the company removed some of the features found on its larger, heavier and more premium options. With a lower-spec camera and fewer sensors, then, the first Mavic Mini was more of an entry-level drone – with an entry-level price point to match. The introduction … Read more

Sony-Xperia-1-IV-featured-e1652253802596-1

Sony has long given up on the idea of competing against big smartphone OEMs in every market at every possible price bracket. Instead of trying to appeal to mainstream buyers, the company has embraced its identity as a niche player and seems content with catering to a small but dedicated audience. The company’s Xperia 1 line has always stood out from the crowd for its unique characteristics and promoting features that have long disappeared from the mainstream flagships. Today, the Japanese smartphone maker unveiled the next iteration of its flagship, dubbed the Xperia I IV.

Windows 11 Is Getting a New Sound Recorder App

New-Windows-sound-recorder-featured-2

Windows 10 has a built-in Voice Recorder app, intended for creating simple recordings from a connected microphone. Microsoft is now overhauling the app for Windows 11, with a new name: Sound Recorder. The existing Voice Recorder app is about as bare-bones as you can get, with no option to change input devices (it’s hard-wired to the default Windows audio input), no file format options, no automatically-generated text, and so on. It has needed an update for a long time, and now a replacement is available in the Windows Insider Dev Channel. Microsoft wrote in a blog post, “you’ll notice that there is a beautiful new visualization for audio during recording … Read more
