Chrome OS is experimenting with a centered shelf layout

July 20th, 2018

The team behind Chrome OS is often testing new features via flags, and the latest of these is a centered shelf layout. The concept is pretty simple - the apps you have on your taskbar, called a 'shelf' by Google, get centered with this flag. Fancy stuff.

In this experiment, the pinned apps are on the left, while the other icons are on the right. I would say the change is reminiscent of macOS's taskbar, but it's kind of hard to claim given that this is just a matter of alignment, and it doesn't disappear by default like Apple's does.

Google Pay adds support for Revolut in the UK

July 20th, 2018

As US financial institutions continue to cozy up to Google Pay by the dozens, banks in other regions have been rolling out support more slowly. It’s significant, then, when a sizable institution abroad announces support for the platform. Revolut is a pretty big deal, having passed 2 million users last month, and the UK-based digital banking service has recently made such an announcement.

Revolut isn’t listed on the Google Pay support page yet, but it’s begun notifying its users of the change by email.

Best Moto G6 Deals in 2018

July 20th, 2018

Here’s where you can save even more on the already cheap Moto G6.

In 2018, one of the best values in smartphones is the Moto G6. Motorola’s Moto G line has been the gold-standard when it comes to affordable phones since 2013, and with the G6, that point is proven yet again.

Motorola’s retail pricing of $249 for the Moto G6 is already darn impressive, but if you know where to look, you can often get the phone for even less cash.

We’ve handpicked the absolute best Moto G6 deals for you, and without further ado, this is what we found.

Verizon

First up on this list, Verizon’s got a pretty killer deal if you don’t mind paying month-to-month for your phones.

If you open a new line of service at Verizon, you can pick up the Moto G6 for just $5/month. Over the course of 24 months, that comes out to just $120 out of your pocket (50% off the MSRP).

The new line requirement is a bummer, but if you were already planning on adding a new line or thinking about making the switch to Big Red, …

Spigen Liquid Crystal Pixel 2 Case review: Clearly a great option

July 20th, 2018

Puns aside, this is one of the best clear cases you can get.

Although the Pixel 2 may not be the most stunning phone ever created, it’s still a pleasing bit of technology to look at. The Just Black, Clearly White, and Kinda Blue colors all come with their own unique style, but if you throw a case on the phone to help keep it protected, these colors completely vanish.

Clear cases are often a favored solution by many that want to keep their gadgets protected without masking the design, and Spigen’s Liquid Crystal series is now available for the Pixel 2 as a way to do just that.

Here’s how it holds up.

Spigen Liquid Crystal Pixel 2 Case

Price: $11.99

Bottom line: If you’re in the market for a clear Pixel 2 case, get this one.

The Good

Doesn’t add too much bulk
The dot pattern helps to keep smudges at bay
Offers a lot of extra grip
