Lens is now rolling out to Google Assistant

November 18th, 2017

Lens was announced at Google I/O 2017, and began rolling out to Photos a few weeks ago. If you're not aware, Lens is a machine-learning powered spiritual successor to Google Goggles, as it can identify objects and landmarks in photos. Google said it would eventually arrive in Assistant, and now it looks like the time has come.

  

Some users are seeing a new Lens button in Google Assistant, and tapping on it opens the camera.

O2 bundling extra data and free Xbox Live with the OnePlus 5T

November 18th, 2017

British customers can snag some decent extras with their OnePlus 5T thanks to O2.

As has been the case in the past, O2 is the carrier partner for the latest phone from OnePlus and it’s making a pretty big deal about its launch. There’ll be a handful of pop-up shops opening on November 21 for folks to go down and buy, as well as a bundle that includes extra data and free Xbox Live Gold when you buy on a new contract.

The information is being sent out by OnePlus to previous customers and it dropped in our inbox this morning detailing a pretty nifty bundle. O2 will be offering 50GB of data per month for the price of 10GB as well as a free 12-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold, because, reasons. The only catch is that it’s a limited time offer and you have to pre-order or buy the OnePlus 5T before December 6 to claim the Xbox Live offer.

The 50GB tariff will cost £49 a month with a £9.99 upfront payment for the 64GB model and £52 a month for the 128GB.

Google adds Nest Thermostat E, Secure Alarm System, Connect, and Cam IQ outdoor to the Google Store

November 18th, 2017

When Google recently decided to sell only company-made hardware in the Google Store, Nest products were kept in stock. That’s not exactly a surprise, given that it’s a subsidiary of Alphabet, just like Google. Now the lineup of Nest security cameras, thermostats, and other smart home security accessories sold in the Google Store is expanding.

The Nest Thermostat E, Secure Alarm System, Connect, and Cam IQ outdoor have been added to the Google Store – with varying availability, of course:

The Nest Cam IQ outdoor is the only one of the four newly added Nest products that has a live “Buy” link.

Cheer yourself up in this weekend’s comments thread

November 18th, 2017

The days are officially too short and too cold for many of us, so spend your time indoors talking to friends.

In a few days, the holiday season officially begins in the U.S. That means turkey dinners, Black Friday shopping and the end of Daylight Saving Time makes it dark before you get home from work. Winter time is fun for some things, but cold and dark is generally not a good for happiness.

While you’re mentally preparing for a family dinner complete with politics and religion and every other awkward thing being discussed over turkey and cranberry sauce, remember you have at least one place where nobody cares about any of it and you can relax and have a little fun. This place, right here.

We plan to take a friend to see some history this weekend. She’s never had time to see the sights whenever she’s visited my little section of the world before, so anything built in the 1700’s is fair game. Yeah, that’s not old if you live across the pond but for this part of the world it is. L…

Master Microsoft Office with this training bundle for just $25

November 18th, 2017

When it comes to office tools, Microsoft Office is the leading suite thanks to a wide variety of tools and apps contained within. Word or PowerPoint are pretty easy to get started with, but not Excel. There’s a steep learning curve involved there that isn’t easy to master.

In order to become proficient in all that Microsoft Office contains, it’s not a bad idea to enroll in a specialized course. Unfortunately, these courses are often very expensive, and you might not have time right now for anything extra.

Android Central Digital Offers has a deal on a lifetime subscription to eLearnExcel. This bundle, which you can access at any time forever, is normally about $1,000. Typically, you can get it for just $69 from iMore Digital Offers —That’s 95 percent off the regular price — but they’ve lowered it even further to just $25!

The bundle includes everything you need to know about using Excel. In all, there are eight courses and more than 280 lessons available.

Roku Streaming Stick & Stick+ review: A great pair of Chromecast competitors

November 18th, 2017

Roku was one of the first companies in the streaming set-top box market. Over the years, it has released quite a few devices, ranging from Chromecast-shaped sticks to 4K-capable boxes. You may recall that Roku revamped its lineup last month, and now sells five different products for different use cases.

The original Streaming Stick was released in 2012, and while it received generally favorable reviews, the requirement of MHL-enabled TVs (to draw power) and the poor performance were major drawbacks.
