Lovepop Has Star Wars Pop Up Greeting Cards, and They're Way Cool

· · Cool Stuff Found

Are you familiar with Lovepop? They make these amazing greeting cards with pop-up designs in the middle. Trees, bridges, hearts, flowers…there’s some amazing design and engineering going on. I’ve sent a few (with wax seals, because [Bryan]), and they get oohs and ahhs from the people I’ve sent them to. They’re just that good. Anyhoo, the company announced a new line of Star Wars designs on Friday, and they are also way cool. Chewy, an X-Wing fighter, a Stormtrooper, the Millennium Falcon, and Darth Vader and Obi Wan’s showdown. They’re super awesome, but you’re going to pay for that super awesome at $15 a Lovepop (see what I did there?). There’s a discount for buying several cards at once. Click through to the individual cards, and you can see images from different angles to give you an idea of just how amazing they are.

Andy Rubin's Essential Smartphone Tanks, Company May be for Sale

Andy Rubin selling his Essential smartphone company

Andy Rubin, the father of Google’s Android OS, is reportedly looking for a buyer for his Essential smartphone company. Essential 2 phone development has been cancelled, and sales of the original model haven’t topped 150,000 units. The idea of a pure Android smartphone with expandability through accessories was appealing in concept, but not in practice considering Essential’s price dropped from US$699 to $200 before and sales still didn’t take off. Now sources are telling Bloomberg Credit Suisse Group AG is helping shop the company around. Essential is a perfect example of how difficult it is to make a hit in the smartphone market, even if you’re the guy that led Google’s Android team.

Leaked 2018 iPhone Images Begin

Mr. White's Leaked iPhone Image

It’s that time of year, time for leaked images of iPhone to appear on the Interwebs. Twitter user Mr. White posted a photograph (via BGR) of what he called “iPhone X 6.1 OLED,” though it’s frankly unclear if it’s actually an iPhone, actually OLED, or actually 6.1-inches. The next iPhone X is expected to be 5.8-inches, with a Plus model that’s 6.5-inches. That information is not from Apple, so keep a salt lick on hand when considering it. What is the case, however, is that this is about when Apple’s chain starts leaking photographs like this. It could be a real iPhone, it could be test-components for something Apple is messing about with in its labs, it could be a deliberate leak (maybe to flush out leakers), it could be Android device components, or it could be some kind of Apple knock-off component/device being hacked together in the back of a warehouse in China. It could be a prank, joke, lie, or image from 2015. Take your pick!
