Although it’s December, Apple simply won’t stop launching new devices and services. He blinded most of us yesterday when he revealed his rumored AirPods Max – the company’s first over-ear headphones – with a concrete launch date for Fitness +. The company’s exercise subscription service will arrive on December 14, while AirPods Max (available for pre-order today) will ship on December 15 – as long as you’re ready to earn $ 549.
That’s a lot of money for the on-ear headphones, which offer active noise cancellation (ANC), hands-free access to Siri, adaptive equalizer, and spatial sound in addition to what Apple calls “sound. incredible high fidelity ”. The AirPods Pro (which are admittedly smaller buds) sell for less than half ($ 249) in Apple’s own stores and squeeze below the $ 200 mark elsewhere.
And if you want to use the AirPods Max as wired headphones, be prepared to pay $ 35 for an adapter, which stings our wallets a bit more – a lot of wireless headphones in the $ 500 region include things like the courtesy.
We will withhold any judgment until an Engadget publisher has had a chance to test these headphones. Apple may have the interface and connectivity effortlessly, but when it comes to headphones at this price point, is the audio quality on the AirPods Max better? The efforts of Sony and Bose?

The team will implement a “permanent solution” as soon as possible.
Following reviews released Monday, reports have revealed that in-game strobe effects and rapid flashing lights could trigger epileptic episodes. Developer CD Projekt Red has since responded on Twitter, saying it plans to add a separate disclaimer, alongside the EULA, stating that most games appear onscreen when a game is started. He added that the developers plan to implement “a more permanent solution” as soon as possible.
Nearly $ 3,000 is just too much for a Windows tablet.
Lenovo’s latest ThinkPad is different from the rest because it’s built around a 13.3-inch foldable OLED display. The good news is that the $ 230 companion keyboard, which lets you use it as a laptop, is surprisingly comfortable, and the X1 Fold performed for over 13 hours in our dead battery test. The bad news is pretty much everything else – this first generation product is an “expensive experiment” with plenty of alternatives at a more reasonable price.
Its days as a “tube site” are over.
After a New York Times Article dug into PornHub’s lackluster efforts to keep videos of children or assault off its platform, Visa and Mastercard have started investigating their relationship with its parent company. This was apparently enough to spur significant change, as the company announced that it would end downloads from unverified users and immediately block downloads of content.
While the company still allows users to upload their own videos, starting next year, it will first require people to complete an “identification protocol” to verify their identity.
