SoundCloud Go adds a mid-tier $5 subscription option, old $10 plan is now 'Go+'

For most web users, SoundCloud is just a quick repository of sound files for playing back in a browser - Imgur for songs and audio clips, if you will. But for those users that get deep into the highly specialized community of artists and designers on the platform, SoundCloud offers its premium "Go" package. $10 a month gets you an expanded selection of exclusive tracks, ad-free browsing and listening, and offline listening in the Android app. Today the service is shaking things up a bit: there's a new mid-tier service level for just $4.99 a month, while the old plan is now called "SoundCloud Go+."

Microsoft GigJam is a really smart way to temporarily collaborate and selectively share with others

I had never heard of GigJam before today, but it immediately impressed me. This Office365 service, which started out as a closed Preview then was opened to everyone on Windows, Mac, and iOS in June of 2016, is now out of its testing phase and finally available on the Play Store.

The idea is simple enough: you want to share a specific document or piece of information with someone to get their opinion, negotiate with them, give them advice, show them how things should be done, etc, but you don't want to share all the document and you don't want it to be available to them past the needed time.

CloudPets user data, possibly including children's voice messages, hacked and held for ransom

Everything can be hacked, as a certain Overwatch character is fond of saying. That seems to be increasingly true of consumer electronics... including stuffed teddy bears and unicorns. According to security researcher Troy Hunt, a series of web-connected, app-enabled toys called CloudPets have been hacked. The manufacturer's central database was reportedly compromised over several months after stunningly poor security, despite the attempts of many researchers and journalists to inform the manufacturer of the potential danger. Several ransom notes were left, demanding Bitcoin payments for the implied deletion of stolen data.

Lenovo's new Tab 4 Series is a collection of 4 different tablets aimed at kids, teens, and adults alike

Beside the new Moto G5 and G5 Plus, Lenovo is introducing a few tablets at MWC this year: the Tab 4 Series. And a "series" this is, because we're talking about 4 different tablets, without factoring in LTE and non-LTE versions, storage options, and colors. There's the regular Tab 4 in both 8" and 10" variants, then there's the Tab 4 Plus also in 8" and 10" variants.

All of them have Dolby Atmos for better sound with headphones or through the stereo speakers. They will all run Android 7.0 with Lenovo talking up multi-user support to allow many family members to use the same tablet.
