Samsung's tablet lineup is almost as convoluted as its smartphone strategy. The Galaxy Tab S6 is at the top, with the budget Tab S5e dropping pen support and going with a cheaper processor, but leaks for a new Tab S6 Lite started popping up last month. Now the tablet is official, though pricing and availability details are still unknown.
Google Assistant's Duplex service, which can make concierge calls to businesses for booking tables, appointments, or making general inquiries, is already available in some form in the United States and New Zealand. Now, we've learned it's been established in three more Commonwealth nations. But you should not expect a robot to save you a seat anytime soon, coronavirus outbreak or no.
Huawei receiving a trade ban from the United States over concerns about spying was perhaps the most important tech story of 2019, but it hasn't fully panned out yet. The U.S. Commerce Department gave companies like Qualcomm a temporary license to continue selling components to Huawei, which was extended again in May, and in August, and in November. Now the company is receiving another reprieve.
If you've been waiting for your chance to reserve a Galaxy S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra in the United States, today's the day you can do so.

In the US, you're not going to get a OnePlus 7T Pro unless you import one from elsewhere or hang with T-Mobile and its 5G network.

The battle between Huawei and the U.S. government over spying allegations shows no signs of stopping. Last month, the Department of Commerce attempted to place more trade limits on Huawei, and now the federal government is claiming Huawei has back doors in various cell networks across the world.
Anyone who lives near what's called the Ring of Fire is aware of "the big one" coming. Earthquakes are some of the most devastating natural disasters to occur in a short span of time. And while scientists have been able to develop an early warning system, it can only give people a moment's notice to take shelter — but every second counts. One such app that has recently come out is QuakeAlertUSA from Early Warning Labs.
Amazon and Google's plays for user data have pushed the battle of the virtual assistants into the living rooms, kitchens, and bedrooms via the smart speaker. Sonos, which makes a number of audio products compatible with both Alexa and Google Assistant, feels it has been squeezed by both companies of its intellectual property in the middle of this war. However, The New York Times reports the company has decided to target only Google in two federal lawsuits and has sought sales injunctions for its speakers, smartphones, and laptops.
