    How great leaders inspire action | Simon Sinek

    How do you explain when things don’t go as we assume? Or better, how do you explain when others are able to achieve things that seem to defy all of the assumptions? For example: Why is Apple so innovative? Year after year, after year, they’re more innovative than all their competition. And yet, they’re just a computer company. They’re just like everyone else. They have the same access to the same talent, the same agencies, the same consultants, the same media. Then why is it that they seem to have something different? Why is it that Martin Luther King led the Civil Rights Movement? He wasn’t the only man who…

    NEW iPhone SE – Bend Test – Scratch Test – Burn Test

    Got my hands on one of the Brand New iPhone SE phones. Ive done 18 Bend tests on high end smart phones over the past year… which means ive probably bent more phones than any one else in the world. I’m sure my mother is extremely proud. Lets get started with the scratch test. I have a set of picks that tell me how hard, or scratch resistant the front glass is. A level 1 would be the equivalent talc powder, and a level 10 is diamonds. This screen starts to scratch at a level 6, and has a deeper grove with the level 7 pick. Which is exactly what…

    Red iPhone 7 Scratch Test – How durable is it?!

    In front of me I have the (Product)RED iPhone 7. I have already tested the glass display of the iPhone 7 in one of my previous durability tests. The only thing we havnt tested is this deep red coloring. Is it as scratchable as the Jet Black iPhone 7? Or can it handle a little every day life? Lets find out [Intro] One thing I do like about iPhones is that they have an all metal design. It is Heavy and solid. Which is good. [Nails on a chalk board] And it looks like Apple has kept with that same theme on this red version. The top is metal… [Grinding…

    iPhone 6 Plus, Scratch test, burn test, BEND TEST!

    Today we are going to do a durability test on the iPhone 6 plus. These are the same type of practical durability tests that youve seen in some of my other videos. Tests that can relate to every day life. First off we will see how the back of the phone holds up against sharp objects. Now… common sense dictates that if you scratch your phone with something sharp, it will leave a mark. And this is indeed the truth with the iphone 6 plus. The redeeming quality though, is that if the object is NOT sharp, and leaves a mark on your phone… … like keys, or coins… the…

    Mobile Learning Institute at National Portrait Gallery

    This week at the National Portrait Gallery, we brought together 22 young people to be inspired by the exhibit, learn about portraiture and ultimately create their own self-portrait, how they see themselves, how they’d want to be remembered and portrayed in an image. I think a lot of people learn differently in this environment because they had more resources to use also another unique thing was that you feel more important because you’re in a museum environment and it’s like a top museum in the US and you feel like you can learn better because you’re in that type of environment. The first thing that we did when the students…

    Galaxy S10 Durability Test – Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scratched?!

    The Galaxy S10 – Samsung’s latest flagship phone – with all the bells and whistles a tech enthusiast could ask for is here. But is it durable? Can the under-screen ultrasonic fingerprint scanner handle a few scratches? Do the included headphones use a headphone jack? There’s only one way to find out. Let’s go. Wait….no….that’s not it. Let’s get started. [Intro] The Galaxy S10 is the one with the infinity-o display. It’s easy to remember because it’s kind of got a cheerio in the top corner. As always, we start with the scratch test, which means the included plastic screen protector which means the included plastic screen protector should probably…

    Vivo Nex S – Hidden Camera Durability Test! – Scratch and Bend

    The Vivo Nex S is that sweet looking, bezel-less Android smartphone with the motorized popup front facing camera, and in-screen fingerprint scanner. Probably the most futuristic smartphone we’ve tested so far this year. Even though it looks epic from the outside, I’m honestly more excited to take this one apart and review it from the inside. But, like always, we got to test it first while it’s all in one piece. Let’s get started. [Intro] Right off the bat this thing looks incredible. Full screen design with no notch just looks good. The colorful edge to edge display is impressive all by itself, but we aren’t really here to talk…

    Original iPhone Durability Test! – Scratch and Bend Tested

    The original iPhone, unofficially named the iPhone 2G, was the start of it all about 10 years ago. With 8 gigabytes of capacity, I’m holding the more deluxe of the two versions initially launched; the other having a whopping 4 gigabytes of internal storage. Apple sold about 6 million of these original iPhones. So let’s throw back and analyze how the build quality was back in 2007. [Intro] Now obviously with a phone this old, it is fairly difficult to find a brand new one like I always do with my regular durability tests. This phone does appear to be in original condition though, well, at least it was before…

    iPad Pro Bend Test! – Be gentle with Apples new iPad…

    The all new iPad Pro. Plenty of new design changes, thinner bezels, and no home button or headphone jack. It’s time to see if this massive tablet is durable. The iPad Pro is basically the same price as the iPhone XR, and appears to actually be one of the more reasonably priced Apple products. It even comes with a standard USB-C charging port. Apple’s moving in the right direction. Let’s get started. [Intro] This is the smaller of the two iPads – the 11 inch version. Perfect size for a backpack or book bag. Apple has also released an updated version of the Apple pencil, which is good. Last year’s…
