  • Fixing Play Music: How Google can improve its streaming music service

    How can Google Play Music improve? Let us count the ways…

    I’m not exaggerating when I say this: Google Play Music is the first app I use every morning and it is the last thing I see before I put my phone to sleep at night. And no, that’s not just because Google Play Music is my alarm clock. Music is what keeps me sane during chaotic work days, and it’s what cheers me up when life inevitably happens. Google Play Music always has been my most-used app, and it’s changed a lot in since it launched in 2011.

    Not all of those changes have been good, and there are more that still need to happen. Here are the biggest things still missing in one of Google Play’s most important services.

    UI Overhaul

    Four years ago, Google Play Music went from Holo blue/black to a more retina-searing orange/white. Ever since, Play Music has been adding and adding features without any major UI changes, which has lead to the app becoming a bloated mess.

    The home page was the portion of the app to most…

  • Best Android Camera

    Update, May 2017: The Google Pixel is still our top camera, followed closely by the Galaxy S8. The LG G6’s dual cameras join the group, taking over from the V20, and the new HTC U11 hops on as a great camera in its own right.

    Google Pixel

    See at Verizon

    Google’s Pixel phone comes out on top when you look at photo quality and simplicity of shooting. Interestingly, it does this with what would normally be considered middle-of-the-road camera specs. You get a 12MP sensor and f/2.0 lens without the support OIS (optical image stabilization), but that isn’t an issue for the Pixel.

    It also has a simple camera interface that doesn’t have a ton of features, but makes up for it in terms of overall quality. Just point and shoot, and you’re going to get a great photo every single time. Daylight shots are crisp and bright with just the right amount of extra saturation, and low-light shots are surprisin…

  • New US Supreme Court ruling will make life much harder for patent trolls

    Top technology companies are no strangers to patent litigation. Wherever there is money to be made there will always be opportunists and plenty of individuals and companies have been known to obtain patents in order to profit from licensing or litigation. Yesterday, the US Supreme Court ruled on a key change that should make it much harder for patent trolls to be successful.

    The decision itself relates to a legal tussle between ketchup maker Kraft Heinz Co and a smaller firm named TC Heartland LLC.

  • Tracking your pet with TrackR creates a false sense of security

    Using a TrackR device to keep tabs on your pet works, although it’s not as convenient and easy as you may expect it to be.

    It’s spring time, which means we’re all itching to get outside and enjoy the warm sun — and that goes double for your pets. Whether you try to keep close tabs on your pet or keep them fenced in your backyard, there’s always a risk that your furry friend might make a break for it and go for a wander around the neighborhood.

    Few moments are more nerve-wracking as when you realize your pet is lost.

    Few moments are more nerve-wracking as when you realize your pet is lost. It was the fear of that moment that inspired me to test out using the TrackR Bravo as a means of keep tabs on my feisty feline — and assist me in tracking her down if she manages to get out.

    TrackR produces a line of small and simple-to-use tracking devices that use Bluetooth and your smartphone using the TrackR app. It’s slim enough to be tossed in a wallet or added to a keychai…

  • LeEco is set to lay off over 85% of its U.S. workforce

    LeEco is getting ready to lay off a majority of its U.S. workforce following exec reshuffle.

    LeEco’s debut in the U.S. didn’t go according to plan, and it looks like the company is gearing up for a round of massive layoffs. Earlier this week, LeEco founder Jia Yueting announced he would step down as CEO of Leshi Internet Information & Technology Corp Beijing, the company’s publicly listed unit.

    Anonymous sources confirmed to CNBC that the Chinese company will lay off over 85% of its U.S. workforce at townhall meetings scheduled at its offices across the country:

    Two people told CNBC the company is planning massive layoffs in the U.S., with one source saying that only 60 employees will be left after the cut. The company’s current headcount in the U.S. is over 500, according to this person.

    CNBC obtained an email calling employees together for a Town Hall Meeting that will occur in three of the company’s U.S. locations, including San Diego, Santa Monica and San Jose, a…

  • Moto G5S leak shows off all-metallic chassis and three color options

    Motorola is getting ready to launch an upgraded variant of the Moto G5.

    Motorola’s leaked roadmap for 2017 revealed the existence of a Moto G5 variant dubbed the G5S, and we’re now getting a first look at the device courtesy of Android Authority. The publication got a hold of press renders of the upcoming phone from a “trusted source familiar with Lenovo’s plans,” showing off the color options on offer.

    The Moto G5S is identical to the standard variant from the front, and the main difference at the back is a dimple at the center that houses the Batwing logo. The phone will be available in grey, gold, and blue, and unlike the Moto G5 and G5 Plus — which have a metal back and plastic sides — the phone will be entirely crafted out of metal. As such, the phone features antenna lines at the back.

    The Moto G5S is said to offer a 5.2-inch Full HD display, with the G5S Plus expected to feature a 5.5-inch Full HD screen. There’s no information on pricing, but it will undoubte…

    The OnePlus 5 could be available in black, unicorn, red, and gold color options at launch.

    As we get closer to the launch of the OnePlus 5, the company is teasing additional details about its upcoming flagship. The latest tweet suggests the phone will be offered in four color options, including a multicolored unicorn hue:
