LineageOS ROM releases first builds based on Android 10 (Update: Builds are back)

LineageOS is the most popular custom ROM in existence, and the project prides itself on bringing newer versions of Android to unsupported devices. However, Lineage has been a bit slow to roll out a version based on Android 10 ⁠— the Pie-based ROM was already available by this time last year. Thankfully, the next major version of LineageOS seems to be just around the corner.

If you binge watch enough Shark Week on your Fire tablet or TV, Amazon will give you $25

If you like seeing aquatic animals with sharp teeth using their enamel to great effect, Discovery is hosting another of its annual Shark Weeks right now and it's taking the opportunity to let Fire TV and tablet viewers "Stream it Forward." It has partnered with Amazon to donate up to $75,000 to the Discovery Oceana Shark Fund. If you happen to go for a swim by August 4, you might get a sweet $25 out of it, too, though you will have to navigate through some catches — and we're not talking about prawns.

[Update: 8 icons in a row] Google Maps to speed up discovery of nearby hotels, parks, and other places

Anytime you open Google Maps, you land on a nice overview of where you are and an Explore tab that helps you find nearby places and see restaurants, events, and attractions around you. Moving around the map and using that same tab is also helpful when trying to plan for a short day-trip, a weekend getaway, or a long vacation. But Google Maps is working on speeding up the discovery of surrounding places even more by offering additional search shortcuts.

Google Maps can suggest the most bustling, interesting, or popular neighborhoods around you

Whether you're momentarily traveling to or have recently moved to a new country or city, you'll probably look at Google Maps or other travel and discovery apps to find places to visit nearby. The same can be true if you're just planning a trip, or if you've been living somewhere for a while but still want to discover new locations around you. Maps' Explore tab serves that purpose well, and has received a small update now to improve discovery of not just places, but also nearby areas or districts.

Pack a virtual bag and follow along other travelers in Trips by Lonely Planet

Pack a virtual bag and follow along other travelers in Trips by Lonely Planet

Travel and destination discovery apps are a dime a hundred (not even a dozen) on the Play Store, but there are still a few names I come back to again and again. Google's own Trips is one of them because it helps me organize everything as well as see popular places to visit, organize day trips, and get discounts on tours, but I have yet to find a nice app just for the discovery of new destinations. I usually resort to a simple Google search or check Atlas Obscura or Rough Guides, but this new app by Lonely Planet might dethrone those options.
