Following their announcements in May, YouTube Premium and YouTube Music (and YouTube Music Premium) are going live today. YouTube Red and YouTube Music were previously only available in the US, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, but it's spreading to Canada and 11 European countries today as well. It's a big day for YouTube. Read More
If you aren't already familiar with Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy (which was released on Steam last December), then odds are you might remember a little browser-based game called QWOP by the same developer. Kiddos everywhere, including myself, wasted hours controlling the runner's individual muscles in a frustration-based exercise that somehow still bordered on entertainment. Well, Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy takes that same anger-induced amusement and turns it up to 11. Read More
The upcoming ASUS Chromebox 3 is now available to pre-order from a number of retailers ahead of its official release. Prices start at $249.99 for the most affordable model with an Intel Celeron chip, while a maxed-out Core i7 model is listed for a whopping $733.99. They’re expected to start shipping in the coming weeks. Read More
Motorola is yet to launch a new phone in 2018, a further sign that the once thriving OEM is becoming less and less relevant in the mobile industry. While the successor to last year's poorly-received Moto X4 has apparently been scrapped, we know that new Moto G devices are on the way, likely to go on sale in mid-May. Now we have a potential date for the launch.
According to an invitation sent to Android Pit, the Lenovo-owned company is having an event on April 19th in São Paulo, Brazil. There's no information about which specific devices will be announced, and it's entirely possible that this could be a Brazil-specific event for something completely different. Read More
Unless you've been living under a rock, you might have heard a thing or two about Samsung's latest flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S9 and S9+. The South Korean tech giant unveiled its iterative new devices at a swanky event during MWC 2018 in Barcelona a few weeks ago, and with pre-orders already shipping (some with the wrong SIMs), the phones are available to buy in stores across 70 countries from today.

Just over a week ago, the LG V30 went on sale in South Korea, with LG saying that the phone would reach other regions in "days and weeks to come." Lo and behold, we now have some details on the V30's launch on all four major US carriers (and US Cellular), along with pricing and availability from AT&T and T-Mobile. Read More
Rumors up to now have led us to believe the event to announce this year's Pixels phones would be on October 5th. It made sense, being just a day after last year's keynote on October 4th. We can now tell you that Google is in fact holding the event on the exact same date as last year, October 4th. First of all, a billboard appeared in Boston with "Oct. 4" on it. Secondly, Google just posted a video and site confirming as much. Read More
It's been nine months since Google Home launched in the US, but in that time, it was made available for purchase in only three other countries: Canada, France, and the United Kingdom. The story is much the same for Google Wifi, with only those three countries, along with Germany, deemed worthy enough to have it sold there. But in just a few days, our friends down under will be able to have Google Homes and Wifis of their very own. Read More
You may have watched OnePlus' recent launch event, which announced and demonstrated all the cool new features of the OnePlus 5. OnePlus might not have made things as clear as they could have during the live-stream, but they did actually drop the code for their "early drop" order system. So if you didn't catch it during the event — most of us didn't, either — you can pick it up here after the break. Who doesn't want to be at the front of the line? Read More
The two phones may not have even come out until today, but T-Mobile and Verizon have been on their toes. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ on everyone's favorite red and magenta networks have already been updated. T-Mobile is a bit scant on details, but Verizon has obliged with plenty of their own. Either way, the timely frequency of updates thus far bodes well for the future of the device.
T-Mobile's notice for the update landed yesterday (note, before the phone was officially released) and Verizon's hit today. Neither looks like it's got any big changes, though. Read More
