Google Lays Groundwork for Improved ‘Find My Device’ Network

Android has had its very own Find My Device feature for a few years, but Google appears to be now making the feature a bit more useful for those whose phone isn’t technically connected to a network. You see, in order to currently find an Android phone with the feature, it’ll have to be connected to the internet. Thanks to recently spotted code, we now...

Yahoo Mobile is Done

Yahoo Mobile, the prepaid wireless option that Verizon launched a little over a year ago that looked like a copycat of their Visible brand, is done. With Verizon selling the Yahoo brand, it doesn’t make a lot of sense for them to continue operating a prepaid service with the name. Yahoo Mobile is notifying customers this week that they can continue...

Nothing’s “Ear 1” Earbuds Catch a Bit of a Delay

The first product from Carl Pei’s Nothing company was supposed to be revealed this month as a pair of earbuds called “Ear 1.” With mostly silence surrounding the brand since setting that date, we were beginning to wonder if Ear 1 would arrive on time or if something had changed. As it turns out, Nothing’s first product is indeed being pushed a bit....

To pin a conversation, you’ll simply long press on a thread while on the main page that shows all of your chats and then you’ll see a little pin icon in the top...

Good Day to Grab a Google Nest Hub, Since They are Discounted

As we cruise into Father’s Day weekend, a bunch of deals have surfaced on a number of our favorite products. One of those would be the Nest Hub line from Google, where you will currently find both the Nest Hub (2nd Gen) and Nest Hub Max with solid price drops.

Google Tells Qualcomm to Chill With Its Wear OS 3.0 Talk

The new Wear OS 3.0 update is potentially going to be big for Google’s wearable ecosystem. They’ve worked with Samsung to bring it to reality through a couple of watches that should arrive shortly, plus they have Fossil lined-up with a premium Gen 6 watch. What they don’t seem to have is an understanding at the moment with Qualcomm, support for their...

Godzilla Battle Line Released Worldwide for Android

Godzilla, for me, is right up there with the Alien franchise. It’s my childhood, so whenever something Godzilla-branded makes its way to Google Play, you better believe I’ll be checking it out. Unfortunately, TOHO, the company behind Godzilla, doesn’t have the best track record as a game publisher. In fact, there are maybe only a few Godzilla games...

Google’s latest and most affordable true wireless earbuds, the Pixel Buds A-Series, are now available at a store near you.
