Friday, May 4th, 2018

The infamous Casting notification became very controversial feature for many. It looked like a good idea when it first appeared, but quickly earned much hate as the notifications proved to be spammy in regular use. Google eventually rolled out an option to turn off notifications. If you haven't shunned these notifications, or you're willing to turn them back on, you can look forward to a new twist that makes it possible to tap on the notification to immediately open up an app as a remote control.

PowerUp Dart Kickstarter campaign surpasses goal by $1.2m with a week to go

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

For those of you who haven't heard about it, PowerUp makes smartphone-controlled paper airplanes. They're relatively inexpensive, with a basic PowerUp 3.0 costing $24.99, and they work pretty well which has led to them becoming incredibly popular. The last time PowerUp used Kickstarter to launch a product, it closed on $1.2m after asking for only $50,000. This time around, the goal is just $25,000. It's not hard to see where this is going.

Sphero announces R2-D2 and BB-9E remote control droids

Friday, September 1st, 2017

Sphero's BB-8 remote control toy was a massive hit when it was released in 2015, partially because it was a great product, but also because the hype machine for The Force Awakens was at full speed. Now that another main series Star Wars film is on the way, it only makes sense that Disney would again partner with Sphero. Except this time, there are two of them.

The first new product is a recreation of one of the original Star Wars droids, R2-D2.

TeamViewer QuickSupport adds support for some Motorola devices

Friday, September 1st, 2017

TeamViewer is an invaluable tool for IT professionals and slightly tech-savy people alike. Instead of trying to explain to your tech-illiterate friend or family member how to fix a computer problem, you can just get them far enough to download the QuickSupport client and take over from there. But due to Android app restrictions, the QuickSupport Android app only works on devices with a special component added to the ROM (normal screen sharing works on all Android 5.0+ devices).
