  • Which Amazon Echo should you buy?

    Which Amazon Echo is best for you? I have no idea. But here’s how I’d approach each one.

    I own too many Amazon Echo speakers — from the original Echo to the Echo Dot and the newfangled Echo Show with its screen and camera. Plus there’s the Amazon Tap and Echo Look, which you can’t even buy without an invitation (and you probably shouldn’t but it, for reasons I’ll get into in a second).

    This isn’t a cookie-cutter list of all the Echo speakers and why you should buy them. Hell, a couple I think you probably should stay away from. This is a list of how I see things after having used them all for months and months. Hit the links below to jump on down to the Echo that tickles your fancy.

  • Google could launch its own Assistant smart display this year

    Assistant-powered displays are a thing now, and they may actually be a pretty good thing. However, Google itself hasn’t announced any smart display products. That could change later this year, according to a new report.

    Sources tell the Nikkei Asian Review that Google is on track to launch an Assistant smart display that would compete with the Amazon Echo Show in time for the holiday season. It will allegedly be part of the Google Home family, offering similar functionality to the new Lenovo smart display. Google reportedly wants to ship 3 million of the devices, which would be a considerable number for smart displays.

  • The Nokia 9 could be announced on August 21

    Nokia’s hyping this up as its “most awaited phone.”

    Thanks to devices like the Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6.1, the Nokia brand has been dominating the mid-range smartphone market so far in 2018. In just a few short days, Nokia’s expected to take its sights off budget handsets for a second and talk about its newest flagship device.

    On the official Nokia Mobile Twitter account, the company shared the following:

    We are thrilled to bring you the Nokia smartphones event for one of the most awaited phones on Tuesday 21st August. Stay tuned for more! #Nokiamobile #BringItOn pic.twitter.com/LXgnzguDvm— Nokia Mobile (@Nokiamobile) August 16, 2018
    The teaser image doesn’t reveal much at all about the phone in question, and while Nokia simply states that this mystery device is its “most awaited phone”, our money is on this being the long-awaited Nokia 9.

    Nokia’s last Android flagship, the Nokia 8 Sirocco, was a stunning piece of hardware that felt instantly outdated thanks to its 16:9 displ…

  • 4 ways Android apps make Chromebooks more like Windows PCs

    Google markets Chromebooks as more secure, simpler to use, and easier to maintain than Windows PCs, but Android apps may have changed things.

    Unfortunately for Google (and fortunately for Microsoft), Android apps on the Chrome OS chip away at Chromebooks’ touted advantages. Windows PCs have been the standard for personal computing for decades. Apple’s attempts to subvert Microsoft’s PC dominance with Macs have succeeded in only carving out a tiny niche alongside Redmond’s market dominance.

    Google entered the fray with its browser-focused take on personal computing with Chromebooks in 2011. Despite Microsoft’s disparaging ads mocking its “PC” claims, Chromebook’s have slowly become a Windows PC alternative in schools, small businesses, and with consumers. In fact, Chromebooks overtook Mac shipments in the first quarter of 2016, according to Google.

    Though their small global market share leaves much room for growth, Chromebooks gained a foothold due to their appeal as a solution to …

  • Microsoft Launcher beta update cleans up the feed, lets Cortana read texts

    A sleeker look and text-to-speech for messages are tagging along in the latest beta update.

    Microsoft Launcher beta testers are getting their hands on a fresh set of new features with the Android app’s latest update. Ticking up to version 4.13, today’s update includes a couple of major highlights and some smaller tweaks, including a cleaner feed and Cortana dictation for incoming texts.

    The most visually striking tweaks are to the Launcher Feed, which will no longer show card headers for widgets. This has the effect of delivering a sleeker look with less separation between different widgets. Moving widgets to the feed can also now be done by dragging and dropping them into place.

    Cortana integration in Microsoft Launcher is also getting a little smarter, with the ability to read incoming texts aloud for you if you’re busy doing something else. Parents can also use Cortana with the launcher’s family tracking features, with the ability to ask …
