Mash no more: The 'check for update' button on Nexus/Pixel now always pulls the latest OTA

One of the biggest memes in the Android community has been the "check for update" button. Until now, pressing that button never actually did anything; if you were in the update's rollout group, it would obviously reveal a pending OTA, but if you weren't, hitting it did absolutely nothing. However, Googler Elliott Hughes has informed us that that elusive button is actually useful now.

Jaybird RUN review: A set of true wireless earbuds that actually stay in your ears

Fully wireless earbuds are almost certainly the future of in-ear audio. Apple's Airpods, for all the controversy around them, have kicked an entire industry into high gear trying to capitalize on their various shortcomings. One such competitor is Jaybird, now owned by Logitech, whose products we've given high marks in the past, particularly their X series of Bluetooth headphones. Jaybird headphones, though, have been of the wired-wireless variety, using a cable to keep the two earbuds attached to one another. The X2 and X3 were some of our favorite Bluetooth earbuds ever for their comfort, audio quality, and durability - Jaybird did quite a job with them, wire and all.

AnyTrans migrates your data from Android to iOS better than Apple's own transfer tool [Sponsored Post]

Psst... hey readers, we know that a lot of you are keeping a secret. Based on the mobile browser data we have, we know a lot of you own iPhones and other Apple devices. We imagine some of you have iOS devices supplied by your employers and others *gasp* might have even bought (or are planning to buy) an iOS device for yourself because you wanted one. Here's a bigger secret – a lot of us own Apple devices as well (mostly computers and tablets), so we won't hold it against you. Shhh... it's our little secret.

We've covered Stringify a few times, citing it as a more powerful alternative that can plug into IFTTT. The company apparently caught the eye of Comcast recently, which just had to have it.

Firefox Focus updated with multiple tabs and incognito mode for Gboard

Firefox is a full-featured browser, which is what most people want. Firefox Focus, however, is intentionally lacking in features with the aim of improving user privacy. That doesn't mean it needs to be completely barebones, though. With today's update to v2.0, Firefox Focus supports multiple tabs. Plus, it's a little more secure.

Moto G5S Plus now up for pre-order in the US for $229.99

Motorola went ahead and befuddled everyone last month when it announced a small upgrade to its G5/G5 Plus with the newer G5S and G5S Plus, then revealed there were two versions: one for the US without NFC and one for Europe with NFC, and then clarified that only the Plus would come to the US. Now that day has come and the G5S Plus is up for pre-order in the US on several sites.

The price is reduced for a limited period of time (except on Frys): the 3GB/32GB version can be had for $229.99 instead of $279.99 and the 4GB/64GB version is down from $349.99 to $299.99.

Google starts asking for audience reviews in movie search results

Late last year, Google started showing like and dislike buttons on movie and TV shows' search results card. That allowed it to add its own ratings next to IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes. But it was only a percentage of likes based on how many people tapped the thumbs up or down icon, so it didn't provide any context or explanation to the rating, thus making users head elsewhere for a more detailed opinion.

Now it appears that Google is testing a more elaborate rating system with full reviews. You can still like/dislike the movie, but if you scroll down you might also spot a new "Audience reviews" section.
