Just when I’m bored with my iPhone 5S being slow and full of software bugs, just when I’m really angry at Apple for being such a shitty mainstream brand, I find out Huawei is releasing the latest edition of the Honor smartphone in Europe. It’s basically a high-powered, large screen, high def camera-equiped smartphone with an Android OS. It simply does what my iPhone doesn’t feel like doing these days: quick app changes, no-freeze web browsing, intelligent Google features (like how do I get home in a few finger taps, quick notification swipes, full Google integration, free cloud back-ups, real password ingration across devices through Chrome…). I wouldn’t say life changing upgrade but for half the price of an iPhone, you get everything I mentionned above plus longer life battery, customizable OS and themes, standard USB charging cables (thank god) and many more not-so-anectodic details. Check out more screegrabs after the break ang get a product tour here.

Totally digging that house on the cliff. Crisp, white, square, angular, levitating… The perfect summer house that build on a pretty coast or even better, an island. I’m thinking Ibiza. Warm weather, transparent waters, a pool, some escort girls… Pretty picture huh? Stop by the Fran Silvestre Arquitectos website for more crazy architectural projects like this one!

3110_pioneer_03

 

What a beautiful concept by designer Artem Shykov! A piece of art that high-fidelity audio freaks would buy for the design only! A classic tape player/recorder in a handsome professional design body. Not very useful in a world where iPhones can record hours of talks in the palm of a hand but at least, you get to live like we’re back in the 50s!
