Google Kills Chrome's New Bookmark Manager On Desktop And Android, But Here's How To Get It Back

Google's bookmark revamp (which was sometimes referred to as "Stars") has had a rough ride over the past dozen or so months. After being spotted online, it showed up as a standalone Chrome extension and web interface, then resurfaced as the Bookmark Manager for Chrome. It seems however that the experiment wasn't as positive or fruitful as the team had hoped, and the redesign has been canned - at least as the default bookmarks view in Chrome.

Writing on the Google Product Forums, Google employee Sarah Dee explained, "For the time being, we’ve decided to bring back the previous version. Our team will continue to explore other ways to improve the bookmarks experience.

LastPass Faces Security Breach, Prompts Users To Update Their Master Passwords

Just before the weekend, LastPass came across some suspicious activity on its network. It closed off the security breach, but only after the bad guys had made off with some personal information. The incident serves as a reminder of the risks inherent with trusting a company and web service with your security.

The team found no evidence that any encrypted vault data was taken. This means you shouldn't have to change passwords on sites that you've stored in your LastPass account.

That said, some email addresses, password reminders, authentication hashes, and server per user salts were compromised. As a result, LastPass is prompting everyone to update their master passwords (and you should go change your password if you've reused it on any other sites). The company is also requiring all users who log in from a new device or IP address to first verify their accounts unless they have turned on multifactor authentication.

The Galaxy S6 And S6 Edge Have Lost Mobile Data, Hotspot, And Private Mode Quick Toggles - Unofficial Fix May Get Them Back

If you look at the hero image of this post, you'll notice that, despite running basically the same software, my Galaxy S6 has a slightly different set of notification toggles than my S6 Edge. Specifically, the Edge is missing private mode. Both devices are missing the toggles for mobile data and hotspot, too, which they originally shipped with. But... why?

At this point, the frank answer is that no one knows. In a problem that appears to be affecting a huge number of Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge owners, several notification quick toggles in varying combinations seem to simply be evaporating out of the drawer.

Addappt 2.0 Arrives With A Redesigned Interface, Smart Favorites, Full Group Support, And More

You can swap out pretty much all of the default apps on your phone for something else, including the one that manages your contacts. Addappt (yes, that's with one too many d's and p's) is an alternative that saves you the hassle of messaging all of your friends whenever your number changes or accidentally sending an email to an address that has been deleted. With this app, users automatically update one another whenever they make changes, so everyone is always current.

Version 2.0 has hit the Play Store, and it brings with it a number of changes. There's a new interface that, while not a fully material experience, looks more modern.
