  • Sprint mocks Verizon’s prices with hillarious ‘Twice the Price’ ad campaign

    With most commercials in the US, companies compare their products to “the leading brand” or “competing product.” But not so in the telecom industry. Carriers often go after their competitors with satirical ads and CEO rants, calling out each other on …

  • Moto Z2 Force hands-on: I can’t believe it’s not breakable

    Motorola’s latest flagship has a shatterproof screen and a crazy-fast processor, but at first glance you can’t really tell.

    Perhaps the biggest compliment and criticism one can level at the Moto Z2 Force is that it doesn’t look unbreakable, or even particularly new. From the front, you’d have to squint pretty hard to tell it apart from the $408 Moto Z2 Play released in June, and its resemblance to the flagship Moto Z Force Droid Edition released last year is uncanny.

    This is in large part due to the adherence to Motorola’s increasingly busy Mods accessory lineup, which snap on to the back of the phone with a satisfying click that continues to impress even a year later.

    But the Moto Z2 Force does have some notable improvements both over its predecessor, which was held to Verizon, and to the Moto Z2 Play, which we lauded with praise earlier this summer.

  • Chrome will completely remove Flash support at the end of 2020

    The web has changed quite a bit over the past few years. All major browsers now release updates on a strict schedule, HTTPS is becoming the norm rather than the exception (before you ask, we’re working on it!), and web plugins like Adobe Flash and Jav…

    maps

    There’s a new version of Google Maps making the rounds through the beta channel.

  • Fleksy keyboard is back with a new owner and dev team

    The Fleksy keyboard app had a dedicated group of users who were dismayed when the developers seemed to vanish last year. At the time, Fleksy announced that its development team was acquired by Pinterest, but the fate of the actual keyboard app was uncertain. Now, Fleksy is back under a new parent company called Thingthing, and there’s an updated version in the Play Store for the first time since April 2016.

  • Best Philips Hue Alternatives

    What’s the best alternative to Philips Hue? Here are our favorites!

    Philips Hue smart lights are some of the coolest on the market and they’re definitely some of the most popular, but they can be quite expensive, especially once you get into colored bulbs. If you’re looking for a less expensive alternative or just something other than what’s popular, then check out these other awesome options.

    LIFX A19 Wi-Fi Smart Bulb
    Lucero A19 Smart Bulb
    Cree BA19 LED Bulb

    GE Link Starter Kit

    This starter kit from GE features two A19 LED bulbs and a link hub, allowing you to control all GE bulbs through the Wink mobile app. Although these bulbs only come in a soft white, they’re great for general use around your home, while still having complete control over scheduling. The GE Link starter kit is also compatible with Amazon Echo, but requires the Wink hub. Pricing starts around $35.

  • Google adds SOS alerts and disaster info to search results and Maps

    Back in 2014, Facebook introduced ‘Safety Check,’ which allows users to verify they are safe after a natural disaster or other terrible local event. Google has been working on something similar, but more geared towards keeping people informed if they’re in the midst of a crisis. The feature is called ‘SOS alerts,’ and it’s being rolled out today.

      

    If you search for something related to an ongoing disaster, you will now see a series of cards with official updates from governments, affected areas, and phone numbers to call for information.

  • Here’s why some OnePlus 5s rebooted when calling 911, and how OnePlus fixed it

    This is what you’d call a ‘showstopper’ bug … if you actually find it.

    OnePlus has offered up more information on the worrisome bug found by some OnePlus 5 owners that would reboot the phone when trying to place an emergency call. After some investigation, it turns out a confluence of issues combined to cause phones to sometimes reboot when calling over VoLTE to emergency numbers that supported OTDOA positioning information.

    OTDOA, as you likely aren’t aware, is a system that uses LTE signals to determine a phone’s location by pinging multiple cell towers and measuring how long it takes each signal to reach the tower. If the emergency number you’re calling supports the system, the phone will report the its approximate location using OTDOA. As you can imagine, that kind of location information is extremely useful in an emergency situation.

    An immensely helpful OnePlus 5 owner helped the company quickly pinpoint and fix the problem.

    As we found out in the days following the i…

  • A Wallflower smart plug means you’ll never forget to turn off the stove

    There are two kinds of people in this world: those who know they turned off the stove and everyone else.

    For the latter group (at least for those with electric stoves), there’s a new product that aims to give some peace of mind. Wallflower turns your dumb range into a semi-smart (more on that in a second) stove that provides some insurance should things be left cooking.

    It takes about 2 minutes to make your dumb stove smart.

    This whole thing is cleverly simple: Wallflower is a plug that fits between your stove and the power outlet and can tell when juice is flowing. You set up an account with Wallflower, and it lets you know via your phone — Android and iPhone, of course — when the stove is in use or when you’ve left it on.

    That’s it.

    The hardest part of all this is getting to your stove’s plug. For me, that was simply a matter of pulling out the drawer underneath and then plugging everything in. (Note that Wallflower is a little larger than a standar…
