[Deal Alert] Declare A Truce In The War For The USB Port With This Tronsmart Quick Charge 2.0 4-Port Car Charger For Just $10 After Coupon

This month millions of people will be travelling to see friends and family for various holidays. And that's great. What isn't great is a 12-hour car trip with five people and only one available DC outlet for five phones, two tablets, one Wi-Fi hotspot, and a USB-powered cup warmer. With a little advance planning and just ten bucks, you can avoid backseat scuffles and keep everyone charged and happy thanks to a 4-port car charger (compatible with Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 standard) from Amazon.

The Tronsmart unit isn't overly flashy or complicated, it's just 4 USB ports and a cigarette lighter adapter (and from the photos, it looks like it doesn't have any annoyingly bright LEDs, either).

Android 6.0.1 Fixes The Annoying Failed MMS Bug In Marshmallow

Every release of Android comes with some bug fixes, but they aren't usually worth going over one-by-one. That's not the case with the infamous Marshmallow MMS bug, which has slowly driven many of us insane over the last few months. Thankfully, it was fixed in Android 6.0.1.

[Update: US And China Only] Cortana Exits Public Beta And Is Now Officially Available For Android

You could think of Cortana as Microsoft Now. We Android users ask Google questions by default, but when you're on a modern Windows device, Cortana's the one who will chime in with an answer.

Microsoft's plans to bring Cortana to Android has been no secret. A leaked APK hit the web back in July. The public beta entered the Play Store around a month later. Now the official release is ready for all.

[Deal Alert] ZeroLemon SolarJuice 20000mAh Solar-Powered External Battery Only $29.99 At Newegg

Like you, I love external battery packs. I especially like ones that don't require you to plug them into the wall. Okay, ZeroLemon's SolarJuice backup chargers aren't quite there yet—you could easily spend a weekend getting enough power from the sun to recharge your phone once. But boy, there's something about having the option that sure feels awesome. And I live in a part of the country that's not unfamiliar with losing electricity for days due to hurricanes, so there's that.

YouTube App Starts Showing Buffer Progress On Paused Videos For Some Users

YouTube is the darling app of interface tinkerers at Google. The team behind it is always trying something new, testing the waters with A/B server-side changes that some users see, others don't, and we like writing about (exhibit A, B, C, and so on). Now we're getting tips about a new change that's surfacing for a lot of users, which makes us think this might be a relatively wide rollout that you could encounter as well.

When you pause a video in the YouTube app, a new buffering progress overlay shows up below the play button. It clearly states the total size of the video and how much of it has been buffered.

[Sweet Deal Alert] Nexus 7 2013 Drops To $99.99 On Groupon With Optional Travel Cover

I love my Nexus 7 2013. I bought it the day it was released in the US, shipped it over to Lebanon, and have used it daily ever since I received it. I find it to be the perfect size for reading and browsing, especially if you like holding your tablets with one hand. (I walk around reading on mine, I'm a bit weird like that.) The build quality also makes it awesome to throw on a bed or sofa without worrying about something getting loose or broken inside. It's also recently got Marshmallow, which makes it more up to date than most tablets out there.
