First Look At Emojimovie: Express Yourself Features A Jaunty Poop

This image from the Emojimovie fills me with existential dread. The smile that looks coincidentally like Wyldstyle from the LEGO Movie. The bandage/bandanna on the high five. The bow-tied poo with raised eyebrows. The presence of T.J. Miller (Deadpool), James Corden (Into the Woods) and Ilana Glazer (Broad City) cannot remove that dread.

Here's My Perfect Home Theatre, No Expense Spared

Someone asked me recently what home theatre setup I’d build myself if money was no issue. I’m not talking about an actual theatre — I’d rather just go to the movies for that — but here’s what I’d buy myself. If you have an appropriately fat bank account, enough space at home and an afternoon to buy everything, here’s what you should get.

Sony Z9D 4K Android TV: Australian Review

Most LCD TVs either use a long string of LEDs around the edge of the panel or a thin sheet of LEDs across the back to light up their screens, meaning that large areas of the screen are lit by just a few LEDs — and generally that’s meant that LCDs have struggled to display bright whites alongside dark blacks. Sony’s new Z9D TV, though, uses a full-array backlight with hundreds of individually-controlled LEDs, giving just about the most complex and powerful range of brightness across the display of any LCD TV you can buy today. And when you’re watching the right movie, the difference is colossal.

Panasonic's New Compact Camera Is Much Cheaper Than It Looks

Once upon a time Panasonic was among the champs when it came to “step-up cameras” — the high-quality point and shoots that bridged the gap between $250 cameras and $1300 DSLRs. Yet over the last few years, Sony’s RX100 series cameras have taken the crown thanks to a tiny camera body, excellent image quality and fancy features like a high-speed lens and the ability to shoot high-quality video. The new Lumix LX10 looks like a welcome return to form for Panasonic — aping the RX100’s best features and knocking $US300 ($398) off the price.

An Insanely Long List Of Ways To Deal With The iPhone Headphone Jack Apocalypse

When Apple stopped including disk drives on its desktop computers, the world barely batted an eye. When DVD-ROMs were removed from the MacBook, few cared. But the loss of the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 is a clear indicator that the apocalypse is upon us. But don’t freak out just yet, we’re going to help you deal.
