You might have heard the news that Google finally launched the new Gmail today. It's appearing in browsers all over the world as we speak, but another Gmail implementation is getting some new goodies, too. The Gmail app on Android will get snooze functionality as part of this revamp, and it appears the feature is rolling out to phones. Read More
Earlier this month we learned that Jam City was planning to release their officially licensed Harry Potter choose your own adventure game on April 25th, and it looks like they have held true to their word.

Spotify is one of the world's most popular music streaming services, with 157 million active users (as of December 2017) and over 35 million songs. Originally born in Sweden, it quickly gained popularity as it expanded outside of its home country. Frankly, it's hard to believe that Spotify hit U.S. shores almost seven years ago. For many who were accustomed to mainstays at the time like Pandora and iHeartRadio, Spotify represented something different. And to some of us, its disparity to those other services was off-putting.

A new page appeared on Amazon yesterday: white text on a blue backdrop, asking "What is Fire TV Cube?" with a button to sign up for email updates. The question, obviously rhetorical, is a clear teaser for a new Fire TV device. Read More
The removal of Facebook posts that violate some of the social network's policies can now be appealed. Content flagged for certain violations will be made private, and the poster presented the option to begin an appeals process to restore the post. Read More
It's been apparent for some time that Google was working on a new Tasks app, and further confirmation of this came with the leaked Gmail redesign. Now it's official. Google Tasks has been completely overhauled and is now unrecognizable from the hardly-used husk of a Gmail add-on it has been up to now. It comes as the Gmail refresh is starting to roll out more widely, but there's also a separate app for Android, iOS, and the web that you can try even if you don't use Google's email app.
By this point, we're able to piece together a pretty good picture of the upcoming OnePlus 6. It's going to have a notch. Unless you don't want it to have a notch. Unsurprisingly, it's going to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. And it's going to have a glass back. We now know when we're going to see the full picture.
OnePlus is holding an event at 17:00 GMT on May 16th in London, and it's been given the tagline "The Speed You Need." Most recent Android flagship launches have focussed on imaging, so it's interesting to see OnePlus take a different approach by talking up the speed of its latest device. Read More

It looks like Chrome's iconic trapezoidal tabs might soon be going away. The tab's design, which has remained essentially the same since Chrome was first released almost 10 years ago, is undergoing a bit of a refresh, shifting from their old shape into more of a rounded-corner rectangle. The change is currently present (as an option) in the experimental Canary build of the browser. Read More
