Xiaomi Mi Box 4 will reportedly be announced in China on January 29

Xiaomi's Mi Box is one of many set-top boxes running Android, and the third generation was released in China in late 2016. An international model running Android TV 6.0 was released shortly afterwards, simply called 'Mi Box,' but that received mixed reviews. Now it looks like the fourth-generation Mi Box will be unveiled on January 29, according to reports from Chinese media.

After 5 years with Samsung and LG, I moved to a Pixel 2 XL and... nothing has changed

I still remember when we used to bicker over iPhone vs Symbian, before Android took over the second part of that argument. I also remember when Xenon vs LED flash was the most controversial discussion in the smartphone world for several years - some of you may have been toddlers when that started. And I remember when apps weren't a thing, when 3G was the hottest novelty, when we thanked our lucky stars because companies stopped using massive proprietary charging and earphone ports, and when a smartphone with a 2.8" display (Nokia N95 8GB) counted as monstrous. Nowadays, we feel cheated when the second back lens in a phone doesn't bring a lot of improvement, or when the display's color shifts at an angle as if everyone is side-glancing at their phones all the time, when a device has a MicroUSB port and not USB-C, or when it takes a fraction of a millisecond longer for a swipe to register.

[Update: All gone] Google Clips now available in the Google Store, but deliveries aren't expected until March

Three months ago Google announced the Google Clips, a tiny clip-on camera powered by some impressive machine learning technology. The idea behind it was that rather than require you to choose when to take a photo, you could trust the device to make that decision itself, so parents hoping to capture special moments with their kids don't also have to take themselves out of the moment to do it. And today you can finally order one, though delivery dates are currently set as far out as March.

No, OnePlus is still not sending your clipboard data to China

OnePlus can't catch a break lately. While it's made some legitimate mistakes (eg. the credit card hack), there have also been some incidents where hysteria took precedence over common sense. That was the case with the clipboard story a few weeks back, and now there's another clipboard-related accusation making the rounds. A Twitter post claims OnePlus is identifying and uploading clipboard data like bank account numbers to a Chinese server, but the company says this is incorrect. The file in question specifically stops the OS from monitoring certain types of data, and it's not even active in OxygenOS.

Latest Logi Circle update includes snapshots in activity alerts, even on the free plan [APK Download]

Logitech has released an update to the Logi Circle app that goes with its Circle security cameras, and for the first time, users will now see an image preview in a notification warning you of detected activity while you're not at home. This functionality is available to every Circle user, even on the free plan, bringing it in line with similar services from Nest and Netamo.

Arlo also offers images in notifications, but only for paying subscribers. Nest snapshots can even be GIFs, which is probably the best implementation of the bunch. It's good to see Logitech catch up with its rivals, though, and action buttons to go directly to the live feed or view the event are a nice touch.
