Razer has announced today that it will bring an all-new mobile-focused gaming controller to Android in partnership with Gamevice, a well-known mobile controller manufacturer. This upcoming device is known as the Razer Kishi, and Razer is boasting that it will support low-latency on Android through a hidden USB-C port. It's styled after the Razer Junglecat (released last year), which clearly borrows much of its design from Gamevice's controllers. It would also appear that Razer is positioning the Kishi as a low-latency device perfect for playing cloud-based games, which ties into a Razer collaboration with Nvidia's GeForce NOW game streaming service.

Nearly ten years ago, Google shipped an unassuming, totally unbranded laptop to a large group of journalists and tech enthusiasts as part of a 60,000 unit pilot program. That laptop was the CR-48, and it was designed to showcase a project Google had been working on internally for well over a year. It was called Chrome OS.
I was among the first of those lucky folks to receive a CR-48, and I used it as much as humanly possible for almost a year. It was kind of the worst: constant crashes, an insanely slow single-core Intel Atom processor, and questionable build quality would make it clear to anyone that it was very much a product built for dogfooding, not as a replacement for your Windows or Mac notebook.

The last few years have seen Samsung (and other) flagships inch closer to the $1000 mark, virtually vacating the $600-700 segment where devices like the OnePlus 7 Pro and iPhone XR mushroomed. These flag-bearers of the affordable flagship category soon garnered a rather widespread appeal, naturally leaving Samsung wanting a piece of the pie. Rumors say that the South Korean tech giant could be working on a pair of Lite models — the Galaxy Note10 Lite and the S10 Lite — that will possibly strike the right balance between premium features and affordability.

The highest-end version of Google's new Pixelbook Go is now available. So long as you weren't holding out for the snazzy pink colorway, you can now pick up the higher-resolution 4K version with a Chromebook-overkill Intel i7, 16GB of RAM, and 256 GB of storage for "just" $1,400, or a little over twice the cost of the base m3, 1080p model.

December's monthly security patches are here for Google's Pixel phones — or, at least, most of them. While the 2016 Pixels are getting what Google previously claimed would be their very last update after the two phones missed November's patches, the Pixel 4 and 4 XL are curiously late to the party, with no images posted just yet. Most confusingly, though, Google is apparently breaking out its Pixel-specific functional patch notes this month, which often describe useful or noteworthy feature changes and tweaks. Read More
Despite Google's efforts to turn Wear OS into a viable wearable platform, Samsung arguably offers the best smartwatch operating system and hardware available for Android users today. If you've been holding out on getting a watch of your own, or you've been waiting for the perfect time to upgrade, now's your chance to pounce. Select versions of Samsung's Galaxy Active2 smartwatch are available for $50 off right now on Amazon and Best Buy. Read More
Cloud gaming isn't a new idea. Companies like OnLive (RIP) have been trying to make it work for the better part of a decade. Google's effectively limitless resources and software wizardry make it an ideal fit to work the kinks out of such a complicated problem, and with Stadia, it seems it may have done just that. In my time with the platform, streaming performance has been wildly impressive — but lackluster day-one game selection and plenty of half-baked features make for a rocky start for the fledgling gaming platform.

Google introduced the idea of a premium Chromebook (and a matching premium price tag) with the original Chromebook Pixel. Other companies have followed suit with devices like the Yoga C630 from Lenovo and some HP X360. In this competitive landscape, Acer has a compelling solution of its own: the Acer Chromebook 715. Acer's new high-end Chromebook sports an all-metal construction with MIL-STD 810G compliance, optional quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with up to 16GB of RAM, a full-size keyboard with a number pad, and an optional fingerprint reader. Currently, there is no other large Chromebook on the market that has those last two features. Read More
