Yahoo Finance is a great tool for keeping track of business news and the ups and downs of the stock market. One feature that has been inexplicably missing from the Android app is two-finger pinching when viewing a graph, despite all of its competitors and even the iOS version offering this.

Smart appliances are nothing new, but it's a rare treat to find one that does something we can actually call smart. LG will demonstrate a series of new features coming to its line of refrigerators during the virtual CES 2021 conference in January, and among the highlights will be an automatic door that opens in response to voice commands. This will enable users to simply voice the command, "open the refrigerator door," and they'll be able to drop off or pick up items without touching a handle.
We've got one serious love-hate relationship with front-facing cameras on our phones. Sure, everyone likes to take selfies, and their popularity has helped drive multiple social media sites into the stratosphere. But the cameras themselves are just so darn inconvenient, taking up precious phone real estate, and increasingly stealing space from the screen itself. One novel solution involves tucking the front-facer under the display, like we see on the brand-new ZTE Axon 20 5G. Now Zack from JerryRigEverything is putting this model to the test, seeing how it holds up to abuse and also giving us a better look at how this weird camera works.

T-Mobile and Sprint officially became one company this year, but Sprint's former network still exists as a separate entity. T-Mobile customers gained the ability to roam on Sprint's cell towers back in September (with the correct devices, anyway), and if recent news is correct, the legacy network might only stick around for another year.
Welcome to Monday, everyone. Christmas is over, but the New Year is right around the corner, so we still have more than a few quality sales to share with everyone. First up is a staple of our sales roundups, Baldur's Gate II, a quality CRPG that's easily worth $5.

Last but not least is This War of Mine: Stories - Father's Promise, a standalone add-on for This War of Mine, a well-reviewed survival game perfect for short sessions. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier.
