    So you’ve downloaded Snapchat. Now what? We won’t judge you for not being a Snapchat pro already — you’d be surprised how often people consign such a popular app to being something other/younger people are interested in.

  • Government to invest £246 million in making the UK a leader in battery technology

    Forget drones, VR or AI, the most important technology that exists today are batteries. If we’re to move towards a more connected world, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and effectively save the planet, batteries are the key technology that will get us there.

  • Facebook News Feed change demotes sketchy links overshared by spammers

    Technically, Facebook can’t suspend people’s accounts just for sharing 50-plus false, sensational or clickbaity news articles per day. It doesn’t want to trample anyone’s right to share.

  • For Apple, 2017 means “iPhone 8” or bust

    Although not due for release until later this year, you’ve probably heard rumors and leaks regarding the Apple iPhone 8 for months at this point.

  • Is a OnePlus phone your daily driver?

    Some companies don’t have any issues charging quite a bit of money for their smartphones.

  • Seagate Ships Nytro 141 Low-Cost Consumer SSD

    Seagate hasn’t released a consumer SSD since the 600 and 600 Pro came to market in mid-2013. We’ve heard rumors about new products for the last year, but nothing has come of that speculation.

  • All Chromebooks released in 2017 and later will support Android apps

    Google began adding support for the Play Store to Chromebooks last spring, but the rollout has been very, very slow. At first, only a few ARM-powered Chromebooks had support, then Google’s own Pixel 2 was added. Now, many recent Chromebooks have gotten the Play Store, at least in the developer channel. Google is going a […]

  • Adobe bets on Chromebooks for education with slew of mobile apps

This is part of the company’s education initiative, […]

  • Apple removes app to help you find lost AirPods from app store

    Since Apple took away our headphone jacks (RIP), all we have left to lose is our wireless AirPods… literally.

An app called Finder for […]
