Ring launches its most affordable wired video doorbell for $60, shipping late February

Those video doorbells out there might be nice and new, but they're also quite expensive and run on batteries you'll need to replace every so often. Amazon-owned Ring is launching its Video Doorbell Wired to address both of those pain points — notably, it's the most affordable in its portfolio.

Google's latest canceled VR project will at least live on as an open source project

One of the more interesting VR applications we've seen in recent years is Tilt Brush, an app that lets users create 3D art in a virtual environment. Unfortunately, Google has announced that it's ending internal development for the app. It will get another chance to succeed, however, as an open-source project.

Dragon Quest Tact is the latest gacha game from Square Enix, now available on Android

Dragon Quest Tact is the latest gacha game from Square Enix, now available on Android

Square Enix has announced that its free-to-play collection-based tactical RPG Dragon Quest Tact will be coming to the West on both Android and iOS. Back in February (2020), Square announced the game for Japan, and it would appear it was launched in July (2020) and has already racked up 500,000 installs. I suppose this success is the reason the game will soon come to new territories. While the English version isn't slated for a release until 2021, it's already available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store.

Tasker picks up integrated support to trigger tasks from the Google Assistant

Tasker picks up integrated support to trigger tasks from the Google Assistant

The popular automation app Tasker just picked up a big new feature: The ability to call tasks from Tasker directly from the Google Assistant. It's English-only for now, but you'll be able to trigger your tasks just by name when telling the Assistant to "start" or "do" a specific command in Tasker. Even more powerfully and flexibly, you can also use Tasker's Pattern Matching to perform actions with variables on the fly. But unlike AutoVoice, this only works on the device that has Tasker installed on it — probably your phone.

Plex thinks you'll pay to stream old Atari games that you definitely cannot find for free on the internet

Plex started as a way to organize and stream your media library, but it has since expanded to include live TV, ad-supported streaming video, and Tidal music, among other things.

Sony's latest smartphone strategy: Charge $2,500 and call it a 'camera accessory'

Sony's latest smartphone strategy: Charge $2,500 and call it a 'camera accessory'

Sony has long made interesting smartphone design decisions — tending to prioritize features that, while earning the company a small but fervent following, have failed to make much headway in the market at large. With the new Xperia Pro, it's leaning hard into that approach: the phone is an unabashedly niche $2,500 accessory for professional photographers and videographers, and you can buy one today.

Teardown reveals potential OnePlus 9 camera features

When OnePlus rolled out an Android 11-based beta to the OnePlus 7 and 7T last week, it also included a new version of its Camera app, v6.4.23.

Madden NFL 21 is officially coming to Stadia this week

Madden NFL 21 is officially coming to Stadia this week

Last April, we learned that Electronics Arts would be bringing its games to Stadia, such as Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. At the time of this announcement, EA also stated that the Madden NFL series would be coming to the platform but never stipulated which entry in the series would be Stadia's first. Well, EA has finally decided to announce that this entry will be Madden NFL 21 and that it will be available on Stadia starting on January 28th. Even better, this launch will signal a free weekend that will end on the 31st, which should ideally allow any interested parties a lengthy look at the game without going out of pocket.
