One of my favorite parts of this job is that I get to work from anywhere with an internet connection, which of course means that I never leave my house.

Luckily, my Google Home will soon be able to read off recipes to me, which is just awesome. Read More

A number of users on Samsung's forums and XDA have been reporting issues with some Qi chargers, including those manufactured by Samsung. Some devices aren't able to make use of Qi's Fast Charge feature, and in some cases they are failing to charge at all.
