  • Amazon tops Google to become the second most valuable company in the world

    Amazon has just overtaken Alphabet, Google’s parent company, to become the second most valuable company in the world, with a current market capitalization of 768 billion US dollars as of today’s closing bell. Alphabet, which is presently valued at $761 billion, had consistently held the second position to Apple, valued at $889 billion, since around 2016.

    The switch in positions comes as a result of Amazon’s steady climb in market valuation over the past few years, finally culminating today with a 2.69% increase in stock price while Alphabet’s stock fell 0.39%.

  • Google doubles down on efforts to fight the spread of ‘fake news’

    Was there ever really a simpler time when news wasn’t printed unless it had been properly vetted, fact-checked, and certified as an iron-clad representation of the truth? Classical news reporting may not have been as bias-free and accurate as some of us would like to think, but there’s little denying that the current way we consume our news can be pretty darn tricky to navigate, especially as it becomes more difficult for the less discerning reader to tell a solidly researched story apart from wild, paranoid speculation—or outright lies.

  • It would be madness to trust Facebook in the future

    Reeling from the Cambridge Analytica scandal and hemorrhaging stock, Facebook appears to be facing the biggest crisis in its 14-year history. The social network giant built a fortune on our intimate relationships, but with its manipulations laid bare, …

  • You’ll soon be able to start a YouTube livestream directly from within the camera app

    Google continues to improve YouTube’s livestreaming features after having announced auto-captions and new chat features just last month. Today, Google has revealed that it’s refining YouTube Live’s streaming process to make it much simpler and quicker for users to get their livestream up and running.

    Up until now, it’s been fairly cumbersome to start a livestream from a computer using an encoder, requiring several steps and specific software. With today’s changes, all a user has to do is head over to youtube.com/webcam and hit the “Go live” button to start streaming — no additional software or setup needed.

  • [Deal Alert] Nest Hello smart doorbell already down to $177.65 ($51.35 off) on Rakuten with code

  • Huawei P20: Rumors, specs, availability, and more!

    Whatever name it carries, the successor to the Huawei P10 should be a fascinating device.

    Huawei, like many other big names in mobile, has a predictable cadence to its flagship smartphone launches. The new technology gets showcased first in the Mate series in the fall, usually paired with an updated version of EMUI, running the very latest Android build. That technological base is then further refined for the P series the following spring.

    That gives us a rough idea of what to expect from the Huawei P20, which we’re expecting to see in the spring of 2018. And, of course, the usual flurry of leaks that accompany any big phone launch have helped to fill in some of the gaps.

    Here’s what we know so far:

    The name: Huawei P20

    Huawei trademarked the “P20” monicker earlier in 2017, and later confirmed the name in a teaser just before mWC 2018. P20 is a rounder number than 11, with fewer syllables (in English, anyway). And the jump from 10 to 20 would also underscore the significan…

  • Plex updates Chromecast interface with a fresh look, better slideshows, and more

    It was a big deal some years back when Plex added Chromecast support. Google’s Chromecast platform has only gotten more useful since then, and now Plex’s Chromecast UI is getting an overdue revamp. The new interface looks nicer, but it also comes with functional improvements like better slideshow support and subtitle resizing.

    These changes apply when using a device like your phone or PC to cast content to a Chromecast or another Cast-enabled device.

  • HTC’s Vive Focus VR headset is super cool, but you can’t have one

    It was supposed to be the first Daydream Standalone headset, but HTC is doing something potentially more interesting now.

    Back at Google I/O last year, Daydream Standalone was teased as the next big thing in VR from Google. A big part of that plan was a special headset from HTC that didn’t require a phone to work, but instead, we’ll soon be using the Lenovo Mirage Solo as the first Daydream Standalone headset. What happened to the HTC design? It became the Vive Focus, running its own software with its own Vivewave app store, and is currently only available in China.

    I got a few minutes to try one out at GDC 2018, alongside a few minutes with the Best Vivewave Game, the award-winning Spark of Light, and to be honest I’m more than a little bitter I can’t buy one of these headsets right now.

    Vive Focus is an untethered Six Degrees of Freedom (6DoF) headset, which means you can move around like you would if you were using an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, but the headset isn’t attached to a…
