Google is testing a likes counter for stories in Discover feeds

Google is testing a likes counter for stories in Discover feeds

Google continues to tinker with how it lets users tailor the stories they see on their Discover feed: first, it was a "slider" button; then came an actual binary "slider" indicating whether someone wanted to see more or less of that type of story; nowadays, it's become the ubiquitous "like" heart icon. The next natural step? Putting a number next to it.

League of Legends: Wild Rift open beta launches in Europe December 10

It has now been revealed that Riot has been very busy having recently announced three new games for mobile themed around the LoL franchise.

TCL 10 5G UW review: Verizon's cheapest 5G phone actually doesn't suck

TCL 10 5G UW review: Verizon's cheapest 5G phone actually doesn't suck

It wasn't long ago that we were lamenting the "5G tax" in high-end devices. As recently as this summer, many phones were launching at astronomical prices, solely because they were able to pull marginally faster mobile data speeds in certain markets (in theory, at least). Today, 5G is still dubiously useful to most consumers, but a series of competent, competitively-priced 5G phones like the Samsung Galaxy A71, Galaxy S20 FE, Pixel 4a 5G, and, to an extent, even the Pixel 5 have changed our thinking about what 5G access has to cost.

The new Verizon-exclusive TCL 10 5G UW pushes the affordable 5G envelope even further.

Some of these experimental features are tucked behind a page where they can be manually switched on or off. You can find these switches, or "flags," for trying experimental features by typing chrome://flags in Chrome’s URL bar and hitting enter. Here is a list of Chrome flags I recommend trying out.

Google Discover starts rolling out heart button for adjusting feed preferences

Google Discover starts rolling out heart button for adjusting feed preferences

A new heart icon has been spotted in Google Discover (née Feed), replacing the previous button that triggered the familiar more/less slider for tuning its content to better match your tastes. This isn't just a visual change in iconography, either, as tapping the new heart button doesn't open any menu, apparently and simply indicating to Google that you liked a given piece of content. So far, the change seems to be in limited testing.

Poco X3 NFC review: A masterclass in value

Poco X3 NFC review: A masterclass in value

Xiaomi’s been busy this year. In addition to launching a plethora of Xiaomi and Redmi-branded phones, the company’s turned Poco into its own sub-brand, starting with the Poco X2 in February, followed by the Poco F2 Pro in May, Poco M2 Pro in July, plus the Poco X3 NFC and Poco M2 in September.

Granted, Xiaomi’s mostly re-branding Redmi devices here, with Poco handsets getting a few hardware and software tweaks like unique memory and storage configurations, and a bespoke launcher.
