Top Greener wall outlet can fast-charge your Pixel with an included Type-C port

The transition to USB Type-C hasn't been as smooth as we all would have hoped. There were a number of bad cables early on, and there are still different versions of fast charging that require the right cables and wall adapters. You can simplify the process a little with a Type-C wall outlet like the one available from Top Greener. We tested this device to make sure it performs as intended, and indeed it does. This outlet will fast-charge your Pixel (or other USB-PD devices).

Peel Mi Remote brings TV guide capabilities to the Mi Remote controller app

Some Xiaomi phones come with an InfraRed blaster that you can use to control appliances around your house like the TV, air conditioner, DVD player, and more. Those phones have Mi Remote controller for TV/AC installed, an app that's similar to AnyMote and LG's QuickRemote. But beside being a regular remote controller, Mi Remote is also supposed to act as a TV guide and now that functionality is available through this new Peel plugin.

Just released on the Play Store, Peel Mi Remote acts as an extension to the main Mi Remote controller app. For those not familiar with the name, Peel makes a standalone TV guide app for 110+ countries and partners with many companies like Samsung (for the Galaxy Tab) and Pronto to add TV guide and remote capabilities to their devices.

WhatsApp's sweet old text-based statuses are back in the latest beta

Last month, WhatsApp turned its app into a Snapchat clone by overhauling the entire concept of statuses. Forget short text and emoji blurbs, now you were supposed to share photos and images with others and follow minute-by-minute to see who snooped on your image and, more importantly, who didn't. Because they want to make a point and prove they don't care enough about you.

While the Status tab is still there and unremovable (ugh), the regular old text-based statuses are back in the latest beta for those of us who aren't hip or interesting or vain enough to share a new image every day. Just like before, you can find your own status and edit it under your profile settings at the bottom in the About and phone number section.
