[Not dead yet] Paranoid Android teases Android O plans, maybe

This is a difficult article for me to write as I have to temper my enthusiasm with a heavy dose of skepticism. AOSPA is one of my all-time favorite ROMs, and the lack of releases since the super late Marshmallow builds last year has made me very sad. Even the merest rumor of a potential return to active development is enough to make me giddy, so the image they pushed on their G+ page that seems to imply plans for an Android O release has me quite excited. But, I have to remain doubtful, not just for the sake of our readers, but for my own sanity.

Multi-user voice recognition is rolling out to Google Home today

Bringing Google Assistant out of the phone and dropping it into Google Home comes with some difficulties. Not the least of which is, how do you handle personal account preferences and data when Google Home is available to everyone in the house? Until now the solution has been "don't." Starting today, you can register multiple users with your Google home, which recognizes them by voice.

JerryRigEverything takes on the (apparently unbendable) Galaxy S8

Can you hear that? It's the screaming of the phones as JerryRigEverything posts yet another video of smartphone torment. This time it's the Galaxy S8 on his desk getting scratched, burned, and bent. Samsung's latest flagship comes through it quite well, though.

Historic audio brand Jensen announces stereo smart speaker with Chromecast built-in

Jensen may not be a household name to many, but they've certainly got some impressive credentials in the audio business. Founded by the inventor of the loudspeaker, Peter L. Jensen, they produce all manner of audio equipment for industries ranging from the military to automobiles. Not relevant here, you might think.

[OMG Rainbows!] Snapchat adds new 3D World Lenses

I'm tired of telling you how much I don't get Snapchat, so I'll get right down to business and cut the unnecessary preamble. The service is adding new 3D World Lenses, an expansion of the existing lenses that were announced last November.

It's an interactive way to bring more fun and glam to your photos and videos, and from the couple of examples that Snapchat has demoed in its video, it looks like you'll be in for a lot of colorful sparkles. I'd call it the Spring/Summer 2017 World Lenses collection.

The new lenses should be live in the app today, so check them out when you use the back camera.

I could write a long post mocking this new Moto commercial or explaining everything that's weird and inappropriate about it. I could lament the poor sense of humor, the slightly offensive misuse of the accent, the horrendous stylistic execution, the failed avant-gardiste vibe, or, and I'm just spitballing here, the lack of a clear story and the super confusing message at the end. But instead, I will just leave this here:
