New Google Home Mini update 1.29 restores top tap functionality with long-press on the side

The Google Home Mini is a super-affordable way to get Google Assistant in your life, but Google was forced to hobble the device shortly after launch because a sticky touch sensor caused Artem's Mini to record everything he said. Part of that functionality is now coming back with a small tweak. Instead of tapping the top of the device, you'll be able to long-press the side.

Not many people are interested in paying $349.99 for a smartwatch, which is probably why Verizon's Wear24 didn't do too hotly prior to its discontinuation.

Android 8.1 feature spotlight: Speed labels for open Wi-Fi networks are now displayed in settings [Update]

Google Maps contextual departure times for transit notifications roll out to more users

Bear with us here. We recently started receiving reports of a "new" notification from Google Maps that shows contextual departure times for public transport when you're near a station.
