While Archer, P.I. is available for download today, you will have to wait for the first episode of Dreamland to air in order to jump into the meat of this release. Read More
April Fools Day is almost upon us, but some companies aren't waiting to share their pranks. Google always does a great job, from the Pokemon Google Maps overlay to a smart mailbox, but there are a few from other companies worth mentioning. Here's a rundown of all the hilarious (or strange) tech-related April Fools Day jokes from around the web. Read More
The Maps team made quite a few people happy with the launch of a long-awaited location sharing feature that actually meets the rigorous expectations of even the most demanding users. However, around the same time that location sharing was added, v9.42 rolled out to some users and mysteriously removed the ability to save your parking location that was added only a couple of weeks ago. Version 9.50 just started rolling out this morning and it brings back the parking marker and associated features. Read More
The Pixel C is Google's newest attempt at making a tablet. Like all Nexus and Pixel devices, it has a large number of custom ROMs available for it, but there wasn't actually an official version of TWRP recovery until now. Read More
The Nexus 5X was one of the last devices with the Nexus brand (unless Google revives it), along with the Huawei-made 6P. Compared to its predecessor, the Nexus 5, it had a faster processor, a far superior camera, a fingerprint sensor, and more. When the 5X was released in 2015, it was easily one of the best value devices you could buy - but how does it hold up a year and a half later? Read More
Last year, Android 7.0 introduced picture-in-picture (PiP) mode, making it possible to shrink a playing video down to a floating window that appears above all other content, allowing users to continue watching a video while taking care of another task. Unfortunately, at the time PiP mode was only available for Android TVs, so very few people ever got to take advantage of it.
That changed with Android O, which has brought PiP mode to Android devices with screens much smaller than a television's, including phones and tablets. However, since Android O is so new and few developers have had the time and resources to update their apps, it's hard to find any app that actually supports PiP for now. Read More
If you own a home security camera, chances are you've already heard of tinyCam Monitor. It's one of the most full-featured surveillance apps on the Play Store, and pairing it with any average security camera will get you virtually all the functionality of something more professional like the Dropcam for a fraction of the price.
The developer behind tinyCam continues to work incessantly to improve the app, and has just announced an update to version 8.0 (just 6 months after 7.0 was released, actually). Most notable among the new changes are support for Android O (that was fast) and MP4 cloud recording, which allows users to automatically sync their security footage to an online backup service like OneDrive or Dropbox.

To round out the first quarter of 2017 (where did the time go?), OnePlus has announced a new build for its Open Beta program for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. Versions 13 and 4, respectively, pack in quite a few new features. But let's dive into the changelog first, shall we? Read More
Yesterday, Google finally gave a reason on why most Android Wear watches still haven't received the long-awaited 2.0 update: "a bug found in final testing." Some commenters speculated that this might have something to do with Snapdragon chipsets, given how the first few watches that received the update used chipsets from other manufacturers. That being said, five of the six watches on today's list sport the Snapdragon 2100. Read More
