  • Google offering a free pen loop to anyone who bought the Pixelbook

    Google’s Pixelbook comes with a big trackpad, a touchscreen, and (obviously) a keyboard. If that’s not enough input for you, there’s the Pixelbook Pen for an additional $100. This fancy stylus lets you write, draw, and access Google Assistant. One thi…

  • Gboard v6.9 prepares Smart Replies to messenger notifications, deeper Bitmoji integration, and more [APK Teardown]

    Yesterday brought us a new version of Gboard, bumping the version number up to 6.9. There’s not much in the way of changes that you’ll see right away, but there is now a semi-hidden feature that will tell you about changes when they happen. However, a…

  • Android Wear 2.8 adds system-wide black theme

    Gray is so 2017.

    For those of you that continue to march on and use Android Wear, a new 2.8 update should be arriving on your wrists soon. When it does, you’ll likely notice that things look a bit darker. According to a thread on Reddit, updating to Android Wear 2.8 gets rid of Android Wear’s system-wide gray background and replaces it with a black one.

    As you can see in the pictures below, this black color is found on the quick settings page, the app drawer, notification shade, etc. I personally never had any issues with the old gray theme, but the new black coat of paint looks incredibly sleek.

    Users have reported getting the new look on the Huawei Watch 2 and original Huawei Watch, but it’s unclear at this time if the black theme is only available for watches with an AMOLED display.

    Also, as Droid Life points out, the naming for the software doesn’t make a lot of sense. The Android Wear app on your phone will be updated from to, but the actual…

  • Android Wear v2.8 app update adds darker background and ‘improved notification glanceability’

    Gone are the days when OTA updates were necessary to add new features to your Android Wear watch. Now, Google can add new features via the Android Wear app. A new version of the Wear app is rolling out today with a few notable changes. The theme is da…

  • Running out of space on your Chromebook? Try these tips

    16GB isn’t a lot of space. You might need a way to add more.

    While Chromebooks are mostly cloud-centric machines, there are still quite a few offline packaged apps available. Sometimes, when you have a lot of those installed alongside media like music, video, and pictures, there’s not much room left. Add in Google Drive syncing, and running out of space is a real possibility — especially on the 16GB storage models.

    There are a few things you can do to help if you ever hit the storage wall. Let’s have a look at some of them!

    Adding an SD card or USB thumb drive is an easy option

    This one is simple. Your Chromebook likely has an SD card reader on the side, and if you add a card to it, all the space on the card is available to the operating system for storage. The same goes for a USB thumb drive.

    There are a couple issues to be aware of here. The first is that you might not want half of an SD card or a USB thumb drive hanging off the side of your Chromebook where it can get…

  • You still can’t delete or upgrade films and TV episodes on Google Play

    As long as Google Play Movies has existed, there has been one major problem – you can’t delete movies or TV episodes from your library. That might seem like a minor issue, since it doesn’t cost users anything to keep content, but it has become more pr…

  • Google’s Arts & Culture face matching doesn’t work in Illinois or Texas

    The culprit might be privacy laws in the states.

    By now, chances are you’ve heard about a new feature in Google’s Arts & Culture app that scans your face and matches it with a famous painting. It’s blown up over the past couple of days, but users in Illinois and Texas have reported that they’re unable to use it.

    Google confirmed to CNN that the face matching feature doesn’t work in these two states, and while it declined to comment about why this is, it would appear that it has to do with privacy laws that exist there.

    Back in 2008, a law was passed in Illinois that made it so companies had to let users know when biometric data was being recorded and what it would be used for. A year later in 2009, a similar law was passed in Texas. The Arts & Culture app does tell users that it scans their face and consent must first be given before the feature will work.

    Some people are of the mindset that Google is in violation of these laws, but others beg to differ. Speaking to CNN, …

  • Moto Folio is an inexpensive folio case Moto Mod that costs $14.99

    The Moto Folio protects your phone and has a slot for holding a credit card or ID.

    Since the first Moto Z came out in 2016, Motorola’s been building its Moto Mod collection at a pretty steady rate. Motorola used CES 2018 to show off two of the most interesting Mods to-date, but ahead of that, it’s released another one that might be one of its most practical – the Moto Folio.

    Folio cases for phones aren’t anything new, but since this is a Moto Mod, the Moto Folio easily attaches to the back of your Moto Z handset using its magnetic connection system. The back and front of your phone are protected from any drops or scratches, and on the inside of the Moto Folio is a slot for storing either a credit card or ID.

    The Moto Folio is available in three colors, including Super Black, Fine Gold, and Grape Juice. It has a retail price of $14.99 (making it the most inexpensive Moto Mod to date), but you can purchase it now from Motorola’s website for just $11.24.

  • This is what Fuchsia OS looks like on the Pixelbook

    Fuchsia OS technically runs on the Pixelbook, but there’s still a lot that’s broken.

    At the very beginning of the year, it was discovered that Google had added the Pixelbook as an official test device for its mysterious Fuchsia OS. Just about a couple weeks later, the team at Ars Technica managed to get Fuchsia running on the machine with some (expectedly) mixed results.

    Unlike an early version of Fuchsia that came out in May of 2017, this is running directly on the Pixelbook rather than just showing a UI on top of Android. You can read Ars Technica’s article to learn about all the nitty-gritty details, but what I find most interesting is how the UI works.

    Starting first with the lock screen, you’ll see the time in the middle with a plus icon near the bottom right. Tapping this brings up shortcuts for Wi-Fi, Login, and Guest, but for the time being, all of these are quite broken.
