Most of these are the usual sort of high-end stuff (both premium and affordable), some are specialized, niche products, and a few are mid-range devices. Obviously, my dance card is pretty full, so I rarely get the chance to dip my toes in the pool of oddball Chinese phones. I recently partnered with an online store for my blog and they offered to send me a sub-$300 handset of my choice. I settled on the uleFone Armor 6E, an affordable, ruggedized phone with decent specs — at least on paper.

Google canned Pixel watches at the last minute in 2016 because they were crap

According to a report by Business Insider, Google's plans for a self-branded wearable were axed at the last minute back in 2016. Following those early leaks, then-new hardware VP Rick Osterloh decided that the experience didn't meet the company's new "Pixel" standards, and the products were dropped from that fall's event and product lineup.

Among the plethora of changes coming with Android 10, there's a new API that's particularly useful for screen-recording apps. Google's new OS allows access to internal audio for accessibility purposes (in particular, the company showcased a live-transcribe service for the deaf), but of course, other apps can also utilize the API. ADV Screen Recorder is one of the first apps to take advantage of it to offer internal audio capture on version 4.1.0.

Just like almost any other app these days, WhatsApp offers status updates eerily similar to Snapchat and Instagram Stories.
