TCL announces the launch date for the BlackBerry KEYone, physical keyboard and all

We first saw the BlackBerry KEYone back at MWC in all of its QWERTY candybar glory. Running Nougat, it hearkens back to the heyday of Research in Motion, the Canadian firm behind the iconic phones. TCL is actually the manufacturer behind this somewhat anachronistic device. And if you're one of those people who judges phones based solely on the spec sheet, then you may not be impressed with this one.

[Update: More Details on Select to Speak] Google TalkBack 5.2 is out of beta with speech verbosity settings, Select to Speak, and more [APK Download]

It might not matter how high the DPI on a screen gets cranked by each new model if you have trouble seeing it. Thankfully we have Google's TalkBack, Android's accessibility service for the blind and disabled. It reads what's on your screen, but it also provides feedback for actions allowing users to fully interact with their device. Now the latest update has left beta after a few months of testing, bringing with it even more features, like verbosity (an adjustment for how much or little content it reads, based on your preferences), character counts for password fields, and a new Select to Speak service that allows you to tap content to hear it spoken, and more.

[Deal Alert] Get a Verizon/unlocked Galaxy S8 with warranty for just $699.99 ($56 off) from a reputable eBay seller

The still-new Galaxy S8 is arguably the best phone on the market right now. The gorgeous Infinity Display and Snapdragon 835 are features that competitors just can't match. That being said, at $756 + tax for the Verizon model, it's on the higher end of the market. Even though it's been less than a week since pre-orders have been arriving on tech enthusiasts' doorsteps, you can save a pretty significant chunk of change by purchasing one from a Top Rated Plus seller on eBay.

Nougat starts rolling out to the Samsung Chromebook Plus, but only for Canary builds right now

Google renewed its commitment to running Android apps on Chromebooks earlier this year with the announcement of universal Android app support going forward. One of the first devices covered by this promise is the Samsung Chromebook Plus, and it's also (apparently) the first to get the latest version of Android. Nougat (7.1.1) has started rolling out, but you need to be on the bleeding edge to get it.

Opinion: Google should fix its erratic reminder system

The ability to quickly set a reminder on your phone is one many of us take for granted these days. Smartphones have seemingly always had this basic PDA functionality. Type ‘add reminder’ into the Google search box and you’ll be able to quickly set up a notification to jog your memory about something later on. You can even use the ‘OK Google’ voice command: “remind me to pick up the groceries at 6pm,” for example. Easy-peasy.

For most people, this function is used occasionally for something really important they simply mustn't forget. And for those people, it probably works just fine.

Although the Moto G5 is the new kid on the block, and one of the best budget phones around, its brother from yesteryear should not be forgotten. Best Buy currently has the 16GB Moto G4 Plus, in both colors, for $159.99 right now as part of its Deal of the Day. That's a nice $90 off of the $250 full price.

Google Home's latest feature turns it into your sous-chef

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. Being the one who is home all day, I am responsible for cooking. Oftentimes, I like to find new culinary ideas, but keeping my phone or tablet on the counter where it's readable can lead to it getting a bit messy. Luckily, my Google Home will soon be able to read off recipes to me, which is just awesome.
