The leaked Android Q image includes a new "Set Dark mode" option in Settings -> Display, thankfully including an automatic setting based on time of day.

YouTube adds 1.75x playback speed on the web

Monday, December 17th, 2018

I would have never thought that a single YouTube playback speed setting would be requested or would get noticed this much, but today I've learned that you can't make assumptions like this without researching them first. It seems that the 1.75x speed setting has been asked about, not once, not twice, not even thrice, but even more times, and when it showed up a few days ago on the YouTube desktop site, many users did indeed notice it.

Google Search desktop UI showing refreshed Material Design with rounded corners and persistent search bar

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

I've been noticing it pretty much since I arrived in Germany for IFA 2018, and now we've had a few tips from readers to confirm it. Google's desktop search UI is being updated to more closely follow the latest evolution of the company's Material Design guidelines — this means rounded corners everywhere, more white than a snowstorm, and a persistent search bar.

Slowly but surely, Google has been introducing an updated look (that some are calling Material Design 2.0) to many of its products.

CTL Chromebox CBx1 review: A good Chrome OS desktop at a great price

Monday, August 13th, 2018

Two months ago, we reviewed the Acer Chromebox CXI3. Even though the CXI3 is a fantastic Chrome OS desktop, it's somewhat expensive - the model we reviewed with a Core i5 processor and 8GB RAM costs $519.99. There's a $469.99 Core i3 version and a $289.99 Celeron model, but those are also slightly expensive given the hardware inside.

If you've been looking for a basic Chrome OS desktop, there's another option - the CTL Chromebox CBx1.

Friday, July 27th, 2018

Samsung first introduced its DeX line of docks alongside the Galaxy S8, angling it as a simpler way of getting work done while on the go without having to lug a laptop or desktop around. However, multiple independent sources have confirmed that the upcoming Note9 and Tab S4 will be able to use the DeX desktop experience without the need for a DeX dock.

Italian site AndroidGalaxys was the first to report on this, but WinFuture and TechnoBuffalo were able to independently confirm the info.

Tip: Google Maps on the web tells you when it’s time to leave for your appointments

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

You're working at your desk or leisurely browsing from your computer at home, you forget you have a meeting or event soon and that you should leave to make it on time. Your phone may or may not notify you that it's time to leave, and if it does, you likely miss it. Next thing you know, you're rushing out and reaching your destination late, or you get a very angry call from the person you were supposed to meet.

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018

The move from Android Pay, Google Wallet, and Pay with Google to Google Pay hasn't been completely smooth sailing, but the Mountain View giant is slowly getting its footing and transitioning everything from the old brandings to the new one. The latest to make the switch are web payments done either on desktop or on iOS.

Asus announces Chromebox 3 at CES, with 8th gen Intel Core chip and USB Type-C

Monday, January 8th, 2018

While they might be less attractive than a full-fledged Chromebook, desktop computers running Chrome OS have their uses. The Asus Chromebox has been among the best in that form factor, and the company took to CES 2018 to announce a third generation of the device, alongside some other small form factor computing solutions.

The Chromebox 3 will be aimed primarily at business customers, and inexpensive Chrome OS machines in the office could be great in communal areas for quick use.
