Flickr has been acquired by photo-sharing service SmugMug

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

Flickr announced yesterday that it's entered into an agreement to be acquired from Oath Inc. by photo-sharing and image hosting platform SmugMug. Flickr says there are currently no plans to change its service following the acquisition.

You may not be familiar with SmugMug, but it's actually been around since 2002—longer than Flickr, which came online in 2004. SmugMug's service is subscription-based, offering paid plans for individuals and businesses. While SmugMug doesn't offer any free plans, Flickr's popular ad-supported service will remain intact.

12 Fortnite-style games for Android you can play right now

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

Fortnite may not yet be available on Android, but that doesn't mean you can't get into some hectic battle royale gameplay on the OS. A ton of similar games have released on the Play Store in the last few months, so I figured why not round up all of the better titles into one post so our readers can see what their options are while patiently waiting for the official Fortnite releases.

Sony LF-S50G review: Novelty features don’t redeem this expensive Google Assistant speaker

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

In the personal assistance arms race, the two real options for Android users are Google's Assistant and Amazon's Alexa, and both companies have realized that victory will require ubiquity—not as the final result, but as the means. To that end, each has opened its platform up for third-party hardware, and Sony's (un)imaginatively named LF-S50G takes advantage of Google's Assistant in the same way the first party Google Home does, seasoned with a few unique features like gesture controls and a clock.

Google Assistant turns to external answers when its own services are offline

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Google's software Assistant and corresponding Home hardware are there to answer your questions (within certain limits), but it may not always be Google that answers. In some circumstances, including things like service outages, it looks like Google is able to hand off questions it would typically answer to third-party apps or services. With your consent, of course.

Search Engine Land reported yesterday on the video just above, in which a request about the weather is passed off to AccuWeather, rather than be answered by the Assistant as it ordinarily would.

Google Photos is rolling out a friendlier and more powerful movie editor

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Last year, Google Photos treated iPhone and iPad users to a new, vastly improved video editor. Heavily based on the Clips app originally developed by Fly Labs and acquired by Google in 2015, the basic controls for working with multiple source videos in a timeline were much easier to see and use than other editors of the time, including Apple's own iMovie app. It has been a little more than a year since it launched on iOS, and now the new movie editor is rolling out to Android users.

Dynamite Headdy is the latest SEGA Forever release to land on the Play Store

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

The SEGA Forever program has seen better days. Back at the beginning of March Sega announced that they would be focusing on direct ports to mobile, instead of ROMs that use their wonky in-house emulator. There are still some new titles planned for the program though, and the recently released Dynamite Headdy is one of them.

True to the Sega of old, this is a fantastic 2D platformer with a goofy premise.

Alexa has gobs of skills from companies large and small. Do you have a skill, though? Probably not, but you can in just a few minutes with the new Alexa Blueprints. You can create custom quizzes, FAQs for houseguests, tell your kids interactive stories.

Alexa Blueprints won't let you make just any old thing. It's based on set frameworks, which are the aforementioned Blueprints. You have to follow one of the 20 Blueprints to make a custom skill, but there's a good selection.
