This ‘airbag’ smartphone case is both absurd and brilliant

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Smartphone cases, in all their various forms, are meant to do one thing: guard our increasingly expensive pocket-sized supercomputers in case we lose our grip as we absentmindedly jab at them with one finger while also walking and drinking coffee. There are many that do a pretty good job of this, but a German engineering student was evidently dissatisfied with the level of protection afforded by what's currently on the market.

Google Pay lands in Germany with support for 4 local banks

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

Google Pay has finally landed in Germany with support for four local banks. Users can download the app from the Play Store and start adding supported credit and debit cards today.

A rumor that surfaced earlier this month, citing several sources familiar with Google’s plans, claimed that Google Pay was scheduled to make its official debut in Germany by the end of June, with Commerzbank being at least one of its banking partners.

You can now set up a Google Assistant payment method in six countries outside the US

Friday, April 27th, 2018

Your Google Assistant settings have had a "Payments" section for quite some time where you can set up a payment method and address. This is used for both making purchases through Google Express merchants as well as sending payments to other users. However, both options are only available to users in the US. So if you tried to add a new payment method outside the US, you wouldn't be able to complete the setup.

German Supreme Court rules Adblock Plus practices legal in final decision

Friday, April 20th, 2018

German-based eyeo, parent company of popular ad blocker Adblock Plus, announced yesterday that it had won a case against publishing house Axel Springer heard in the German Supreme Court, putting an end to a longstanding legal dispute and affirming with finality that both the blocking of ads and allowing certain unobtrusive ads to be exempt from that blocking—a practice called whitelisting—are legal in the country.

Eyeo has been feuding with Axel Springer since 2015, when the company sued eyeo, claiming the German press has a constitutional right to serve ads to its readers.

Pixel Buds now available from Google Store in Australia, Germany, and UK

Saturday, February 10th, 2018

Our review of the Pixel Buds wasn't very kind to Google's first real set of wireless earbuds since they're just not very good. They were only initially available in the US and Canada, but are now available on the Google Store in Australia, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

The truth of the matter is that the Pixel Buds just aren't a great product; they're uncomfortable, don't produce great sound, and have a finicky charging case.

Amazon’s Echo Spot is now shipping in the UK, Germany, and Austria

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018

It's well known that Amazon's Alexa got a head start over the Google Assistant in the battle of the butlers, and it's most apparent when you look at the different form factors available. After the Echo Show, the alarm clock-sized Spot is the second Echo device to come with a screen and it costs around half as much. It went on sale in the US late last year, and now it's also available in the UK, Germany, and Austria.

Google Home adds maxdome as a video provider in Germany

Saturday, January 20th, 2018

Google Home is available in a few countries, but if you live anywhere outside the US, your choice for a video provider is quite limited. Telling Home to play a video from YouTube, Google Photos, or Netflix works in all countries, but that's it. The US gets CBS, CW, Viki, and YouTube TV, but other countries don't have any local content providers. Beside Australia, that is, which has Stan and now Germany is adding maxdome (it should work though it hasn't shown up in this list yet).

You can now make Alexa-to-phone number calls in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Alexa-to-Alexa calls in the UK, Germany, and Austria

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Amazon introduced calling and messaging to its Echo speakers back in May then implemented the same feature inside the Alexa app so you could start a call or receive one from your phone, without having to be near your Echo. However, the feature had one main limitation: the person you were calling had to have an Echo or at least Alexa calling set up. Calls to phone numbers weren't possible, but now they are.
