[Deal Alert] Samsung Gear S2 discounted to as little as $125 ($175 off) at Groupon, Walmart, and Verizon

Even if it's technically less capable and offers fewer apps than some newer Android Wear designs, the Samsung Gear S2 is still one of the best-looking smartwatches around, a year and a half after its original release. And as Samsung gadgets are wont to do, the Gear S2 seems to be rapidly dropping in price. The non-classic version is down to just $125 for a refurbished model over at Groupon - that's $175 off of the original retail price. Groupon is also offering a new model for $154.99, which is still a pretty good deal. Shipping is free.

I guess it was bound to happen: Google Assistant is finally breaking free from the shackles of the Pixels and launching onto the millions of devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and above, no need for GApps or root.

It's been cooling off over the last few years: Google, once the biggest proponent around, has unaccountably left wireless charging out of its latest flagships. Only LG and Samsung still seem genuinely interested in the feature. But the trade groups that represent it are still going strong. At Mobile World Congress, the AirFuel Alliance (formed by the merger of the PMA and AW4P groups) announced ten new members added over the last few months.

Email really isn't designed to handle massive files being sent along with messages... but then, since the standard has been in use for decades, it's been modified in a lot of ways that weren't originally intended. Today Google is expanding email's capabilities some more, at least in terms of the Gmail system.

The latest Galaxy S8 photo leak is the most flattering yet

Gadget news reporters are kind of like grown-up versions of those kids who just can't help but peek at their Christmas presents.

We're still a solid month away from the (very probable) public announcement of the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but we're now getting near-daily leaks of the final design. Today's peek under the tree comes courtesy of BGR.
