Pixel 2’s Active Edge squeeze controls can do more than just launch Assistant (unofficially)

17 hours 5 minก่อน

The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have a feature called Active Edge that Google borrowed from the HTC U11. Squeeze the sides of the phone and you can launch Google Assistant. Or squeeze when a call is incoming and you can silence the phone. And… that’s it. That’s all Active Edge does for […]

Samsung launches Galaxy Tab Active2 ruggedized tablet

18 hours 43 minก่อน

Samsung’s latest Android tablet is a ruggedized model designed for business users, although I suppose the Galaxy Tab Active2 could also appeal to accident-prone home users or folks who want a tablet to take hiking or camping. Like the company’s Galaxy Active smartphones, the tablet is MIL-STD-810 certified for pressure, temperature, vibration, and drop protection. […]

Deals of the Day (10-20-2017

19 hours 57 minก่อน

Google’s new Pixel smartphones are pretty good. But so are last year’s Pixel and Pixel XL. If you don’t feel like buying a brand new phone you can save a few bucks by picking up last year’s model. Unfortunately, Google has only marked down the prices by about $100, which means you’ll still have to […]

About the Pixel 2 XL display…

ศุกร์, 10/20/2017 - 23:57

So you may have heard that the Pixel 2 XL has some display issues. It’s true… kind of. There are actually a few things going on here. The first is that Google set the default color profile on the Pixel 2 XL to sRGB. Some folks may consider that a good thing… but Google didn’t […]

The first Cortana-powered smart speaker launches Oct 22nd for $200

ศุกร์, 10/20/2017 - 22:24

As expected, the Harman Kardon Invoke speaker goes on sale this Sunday for $200. While there’s no shortage of smart speakers on the market, this is one is kind of special, because it’s the first to use Microsoft’s Cortana voice assistant. It’ll go up against Amazon’s $99 Echo speaker and Google’s $129 Google Home. But […]

Huawei has a folding phone in the works too

ศุกร์, 10/20/2017 - 21:42

This week ZTE launched a dual-screen smartphone that you can fold in half, letting you use just one screen at a time or both together for a larger, tablet-like experience. But next year phone makers are expected to start shipping foldable phones that have only one screen. The difference is that they’ll have flexible OLED display […]

Google Pixel 2 smartphone review

ศุกร์, 10/20/2017 - 20:00

The Google Pixel 2 is probably the next phone I’m going to buy. It’s a powerful phone with an excellent camera, well thought-out software, sturdy (if rather mundane) design, and decent battery life. As a Pixel device, it also comes with a few perks including a guaranteed 3 years of security and feature updates and […]

The follow-up to last year’s GPD Win handheld gaming PC is on the way. Chinese device maker GPD has been developing a Win 2 for a while, and now YouTuber The Phawx has posted a video showing what it’s expected to look like. The new model looks a lot like the original, in that it […]

Purism’s Linux laptops now ship with Intel Management Engine disabled

ศุกร์, 10/20/2017 - 03:14

Most computers that ship with recent Intel processors include something called Intel Management Engine, which enables hardware-based security, power management, and remote configuration features that are not tied to the operating system running on your PC. For free software proponents, this has been a pain in the behind, because it’s a closed-source, proprietary feature designed […]

UE launches Blast and Megablast Bluetooth speakers with Amazon Alexa

ศุกร์, 10/20/2017 - 02:00

Logitech subsidiary Ultimate Ears makes some of the most popular portable Bluetooth speakers, and they’re popular for good reason. The company’s Boom, Megaboom, and Roll speakers offer surprisingly good sound quality in relatively compact packages. I’ve been using a UE Mini Boom for years, and haven’t felt the need to upgrade, although I use it […]

MSI Cubi 3 Silent Series fanless mini PC on the way

ศุกร์, 10/20/2017 - 01:00

MSI’s Cubi line of computers are tiny desktop PCs that look a lot like Intel’s NUC systems. But the upcoming Cubi 3 Silent series is a little different. This compact desktop will feature a 15 watt Intel Kaby Lake U-series processor and an aluminum case. Oh, and it’ll be fanless, which means the computer will […]

Google Pixel 2 Review: Performance

ศุกร์, 10/20/2017 - 00:00

Most high-end smartphones shipping in 2017 have Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processors and at least 4GB of RAM. So it’s not surprising that Google’s new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones follow suit. The phones score very well on benchmarks and feel pretty zippy when performing most tasks. But benchmarks only tell part of the […]

พฤ, 10/19/2017 - 23:24

Sometimes buying refurbished devices can be a bit of a gamble. Sure, the manufacturer or retailer says everything’s been restored to working condition, but there’s probably a reason you only get a 90 day warranty instead of a 1-year warranty, right? But Amazon is a company that sells refurbished products with the same 1-year warranty as […]

Want a fully functional laptop that works out of the box? There are plenty to choose from. Want a model that you can upgrade? That’s a bit tougher to find: some modern laptops don’t even let you replace the RAM. Then there’s the Reform. It’s a new DIY, modular laptop that’s designed to be easy […]

The Nokia 7 is a 5.2 inch phone with a full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, and a starting price of about $377… or rather, CNY 2,499 in China, because that’s the only market where the phone will be available at launch.

Moto X4 Android One smartphone review

The Moto X4 is a mid-range phone with decent all-around performance, dual rear cameras, and an IP68 waterproof rating. But that’s not why I wanted to review this phone. While there are a lot of decent mid-range smartphones on the market these days, the Moto X4 is special for a few reasons. It’s the first […]

Samsung’s latest Android phones can also be Linux desktops

When Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 smartphone earlier this year, the company also introduced a new system that allows you to connect your phone to an external display, mouse, and keyboard and use your phone like a desktop. Up until now that’s meant when you use the Samsung DeX docking station you can run Android […]

Ubuntu 17.10 brings the biggest changes in years

Canonical releases a new version of the popular Ubuntu operating system every six months. Quite frankly, most of those updates are kind of boring, with incremental changes from one build to the next. But Ubuntu 17.10 launches on October 19th, and it’s actually kind of a big deal. Ubuntu has a new default desktop manager, […]
