  • Game Dev Tycoon is coming to Android in January

    You may recall Game Dev Story, a mobile game where you had to create and manage your own game company. It is still popular, but it has largely stayed unchanged since it arrived on the Play Store in 2010. Game Dev Tycoon is a similar title, first relea…

  • Google Calendar’s Material Design refresh on desktop is officially rolling out

    Along with the new UI, Google’s also introducing a ton of new features for making you as productive as can be.

    Back in August, a version of Google Calendar on the desktop with a new Material Design UI was spotted by a lucky user on Reddit. This offered us a few screenshots of things to come, but at the time, it was unclear when the changes would be made available for all. Well, it looks like that day is upon us.

    In a blog post that was recently published, Google officially announced the visual refresh and that it’ll be rolling out to all users starting today. Google Calendar’s appearance on the desktop had been getting long in the tooth, and it simply didn’t mesh with the Material Design found on its own mobile app. As such, the new look is greatly appreciated.

    However, a new coat of paint isn’t all Google Calendar is receiving. Along with the updated look, Google is also introducing a few new features that should make using Calendar on the desktop a lot more efficient and product…

  • Phiaton’s new noise-canceling headphones are neckbuds for the sophisticated traveler

    ‘Neckbud’ may be a terrible term for a headphone, but their convenience makes up for it.

    Phiaton is well known for its excellent Bluetooth headphones, and the company just announced perhaps its most interesting pair yet, the BT 150 NC.

    Part of its growing lineup of noise canceling-enabled headphones, the BT 150 NC uses the divisive neckbud form factor — the bulk of the equipment is in hardware that wraps around one’s neck like bulky jewelry — which takes weight off the ears for increased long-term wearing comfort.

    I’ve tried almost all of Phiaton’s other noise-canceling headphones, and still use the excellent BT 220 NC on planes because the algorithm is so good (the sound, though, isn’t great). The BT 150 NC promise much better sound for $149, with longer battery life — 6 hours with NC enabled and 10 hours without — and 95% noise reduction.

    Other niceties? Phiaton has moved on from buttons to adopt a touch-friendly gesture interface on both sides of the ne…

  • Google announces the Advanced Protection Program for enhanced account security

    Google provides various tools to keep your account secure like login alerts and 2-factor authentication. If you’re extra paranoid, Google just launched a program tailored to you. The Advanced Protection Program adds a set of stronger protections to your account, and it’s available right now for all personal Google accounts. Why isn’t it rolling out to everyone? Because Advanced Protection Program isn’t going to be very convenient.

    Advanced Protection Program is for people who are legitimately worried about someone gaining access to their account data.

  • Facebook’s head of hardware at Building 8, Regina Dugan, is resigning

    Dugan will officially depart Building 8 in early 2018 to lead “a new endeavor.”

    Although most of us know Facebook for its bloated social network and messaging service, the company has its toes dipped in quite a few different projects – one of which is Building 8. Building 8 is where Facebook works on top-secret hardware projects, and the head of this division, Regina Dugan, has announced she’s leaving the company.

    Regina Dugan joined Facebook as the head of Building 8 just about 18 months ago at this point, so her departure this early on does come as a surprise. There was an internal announcement on Tuesday, October 17 that Dugan would be resigning, and shortly after this, Dugan published a post on her Facebook page announcing the news.

    In her post, Dugan says:

    Today I am announcing that early next year, I will be leaving Facebook to focus on building and leading a new endeavor. I will be working with leadership over the next several months t…

  • OneNote adds fingerprint security and the ability to create password protected sections

    Microsoft’s services can be hit or miss, but when it comes to OneNote, it’s most certainly a hit. The note-taking application has been, quite deservedly, at the top of most productivity lists for a long time. And a recent update to the Android app has made it even easier to keep your notes secure, too. Now you can add passwords and use your fingerprint to unlock sections. 


    The section protection and password setup process

    It’s worth noting (ha) that OneNote received the ability to open password-protected sections in an earlier update, but now you can also create them from your phone.

  • Google Pixel 2 + Pixel 2 XL video review

    How do you follow up on two of the best Android phones ever made?

    That’s the conundrum facing Google to answer with its new Pixel phones, which, understandably, have an awful lot to live up to. Aside from anything else, these are the flagship devices from the people who make Android. Expectations are high, especially with the super-expensive price tags these phones will carry.

    So the question is: Are are these the best Android phones of 2017? And the answer is: Mostly yes. Google’s new phones are more complex than last year’s models. And the competition is that much fiercer this time around.

    Check out our Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL video review for a full breakdown of what we love — and what’s not so great — about two of the most important Android phones of 2017.

  • You can now control YouTube TV with your voice using Google Home

    Making it easier than ever to binge watch your favorite shows.

    Keeping track of everything Google Home is capable of is a daunting task, especially since it seems like Google is adding new features to it every other day. In the latest feature release, you can now control playback of YouTube TV on a Chromecast using just your voice.

    Until Google decides to release a proper Android TV or Roku app for YouTube TV, watching your live channels on the big screen needs to be done via Chromecast. There’s nothing inherently wrong with this implementation, but having to use your phone to select a show to watch or pause a current stream can sometimes be a bit of a pain.

    With YouTube TV support via Google Home, you’ll be able to use your Google Home, Home Mini, or Home Max to say things such as “Hey Google, play Chopped on YouTube TV” or “Hey Google, play ABC on YouTube TV” to start playing your desired shows or channels from YouTube TV on your Chromecast without ever having to touch your phon…
