Pixel phones come with Quick Switch Adapter, can migrate data from another iOS or Android device

Moving all your data to a new device can be annoying at best, and one of the Pixel's newest features aims to help that. Google's Pixel devices ship with an OTG adapter, referred to as the 'Quick Switch Adapter', that allows you to easily transfer all your data to a Pixel phone. The process works with any iOS device running iOS 8 and up, as well as most Android devices running 5.0 Lollipop or higher.

So how does it work? Simply connect the adapter to your Pixel, and plug your old phone's charging/data cable into it. Once you are signed in with your Google account, you can choose what data to copy.

[Deal Alert] Get All Four Andru Chargers From PowerbyGen For $64.99 (That's ~$35 Off)

Andru is probably the most adorable power adapter in the universe. The bugdroid-inspired plug has movable arms, flexible antennae, and light-up eyes (blue means charging, white is for standby), making it a perfect desk charger and about 100 times more dynamic than the average power brick.

The 2.5" adapter has 5V/1A DC output, and normally costs $25 each for an Andru, Andru Dark, Andru Chill, or Andra (pink) unit. In preparation for holiday shopping (or just for fun, who knows?)

VOIP Hardware Maker Obihai Announces Google Voice Support For Its Home Telephones And Adapters

You've probably heard the joke by now. A 20-something job applicant or apartment hunter or a long-suffering customer support victim is talking to someone who asks him, "and what's you're landline number?" To which the young man replies, "what the hell is a landline?" But niche hardware company Obihai aims to bring back the home phone with its line of VOIP phones and adapters that use your broadband connection to make and receive calls without a landline. And now, it works with Google Voice.

At least some of Obihai's products have worked with Google's pseudo-VOIP solution for some time, but now the OBi100, OBi200, and OBi300 adapters and the full Office OBi1032 telephone will officially support calls via your Google Voice number.

Need A USB Port On Your Galaxy Tab 10.1? No Problem - Samsung Introduces $20 USB Add-On

While the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a slew of positive features, that doesn't void it of its shortcomings. Among those downfalls is the lack of a dedicated USB port, which seems to be a big deal with a lot of people. Never fear, though - Samsung has come to the rescue with a USB adapter so you can take full advantage of the USB host support in Android 3.1. The USB adapter plugs into the Tab's proprietary 30-pin connecter, so it will add a bit of bulk to the supermodel-slim tablet. Of course, this shouldn't be a huge deal because it's, you know, removable.
