Always-listening voice assistants, like Google Now/Assistant or Alexa, can't really tell the difference between you talking and someone else (unless you have Trusted Voice enabled on Android). Maybe you've watched a few tech videos where someone said "Ok Google," and your phone started talking back. Read More
GAMEVIL Inc. has seen fit to retire their MLB Perfect Inning 16 game in order to replace it with MLB Perfect Inning Live. This means that any and all purchases that were put into PI 16 are now completely defunct. As you can imagine many players of the game who spent the last year (or more as the series has systematically carried over since the release of PI 14) building their teams by spending their time and money on the game are pretty irate.

If there’s one thing Samsung can never be accused of, it’s being shy when it comes to marketing its products. The release of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ wasn't going to be any different. To celebrate the imminent launch of the devices in the UK, Samsung's marketing bods have sent a huge 7x3m sculpture made to look like the front face of the phone around the UK, framing the view behind as though you were taking a giant photo.
The campaign is part of a study to find the 20 greatest British views. Samsung commissioned a survey of 2500 people to make up the list, which is accompanied by stunning images of each location from Landscape Photographer of the year Matthew Cattell, all taken with the Galaxy S8. Read More
If you remember back in 2014, MX Player had to take a forced step of removing support for the AC-3 codec (also known as Dolby Digital) from its app. That killed a bit of MX Player's magic: it had previously been popular as the app that could play any and every video you threw at it, no need to worry about formats and encodings, and regardless of whether or not your device's own video player could support them. After the removal, users had to download custom-built codecs and manually point the app toward them as a make-do solution to gain back AC-3 capabilities. Read More
What are you listening to right now? Me, I'm listening to the 2012 album Battle Born, by The Killers, specifically the song 'Runaways.' But what if I wanted to find the music video for that song? Now there's an app that can do that: Music Mate, from DJiT. Read More
The latest experiment to come out of Google Creative Lab is a web-based tool that uses machine learning to help you with all your design needs. If you need to fire off a quick design for a birthday card or an event poster, AutoDraw has you covered.
Using the simple MSPaint-style interface, all you have to do is draw a rudimentary outline of whatever you would like, and the suggestion tool will guess what you’re drawing and offer you far more professional looking alternatives. Click on a suggestion and it automatically replaces your inferior handiwork with something much prettier, sourced from various talented artists, designers, and illustrators. Read More

This has happened to me more times than I can count - I'm trying to read an article, but the page continues to load in more content, constantly shifting my position on the page. This is far more annoying on mobile, where your screen space is limited, but it is a problem on the desktop as well. Google has been working to address this problem with 'page anchoring.' Read More
