Any phone but iPhone X, according to this Sprint salesman – CNET

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that’s taken over our lives. Still not the Apple of any salesperson’s eye.

How I shot a rock concert on the iPhone X – CNET

Andrew Hoyle/CNET Normally my iPhone ($999.00 at Apple) wouldn’t be my first camera choice for taking photos at a concert.

A combination of image noise and difficult lighting meant my shots won’t make the cover of Rolling Stone, but with some degree of trial and error,…
