Nothing on Windows or Chrome OS yet ... but if they get rid of the bubbles everywhere and go to this approach, I'll switch to the app from the extension.

If you've been suffering with Google's Chrome app (as opposed to the extension) for Hangouts (especially on OS X), keep an eye out for an update today. Mine just refreshed to what you see here — ditching the (mostly) single-column view for two columns that are much more akin to what you'd expect from a proper chat client. In fact, after poking around for a few minutes, this is much...

I'm in the same boat, at least for Windows and Linux. The way the extension works on Chrome OS is actually my favorite, but I'll probably like this well enough to keep everything using it for uniformity's sake.

The bubbles were just annoying, whoever came up with that forgot that desktop and laptop computers aren't smartphones, whether or not they have touch.

So Google Maps updated on my GS6. And now I have this on my Watch Urbane...
With the latest update to Google Maps on your phone, Android Wear gains some mapping functionality. After updating to Google Maps version 9.9 on your phone — which brings a neat new transparent status bar and some navigation features — you may notice that there's an actual Google Maps app on your connected Android Wear watch as well. The launcher icon for Maps showed up on our LG...

Curious about the ZenFone 2? I spent a week with it and I'm super impressed. The camera is good, but not great, and the hardware is a little cheap feeling... but we're talking about a $299 unlocked device. It's pretty great for that amount of money.
You get a lot for your money with the ZenFone 2, but it won't be enough to lure you away from high-end flagships. The quick take ASUS is offering a good phone with a big screen, better-than-average camera and solid internals that offer great performance. It's doing that while retaining a $299 unlocked price for the highest-end model, and even offering a cheaper option at just $199....

I tough that's only over killed story about the hardware of zenfone2. The intel atom z3580 cpu chips. I just proven that it's very strong and powerful faster. Because I have laptop which is using at the same model cpu.. with 64bit. but incredible faster. So imagine laptop it's too fast how about cellular phone how much load compared to the laptop.

Seriously consider buying the $80 on-ear Mi Headphones. Been using them daily and really enjoy 'em.
Xiaomi will be opening a Mi Store 'beta' on May 19 for the US, UK, Germany and France, as they test the waters to expand even further. Starting May 19, Xiaomi is going to begin a slow expansion into some new areas with a beta version of their Mi Store. The company posted on Facebook earlier that they would be making a limited number of accessories available to customers to see how...

I got the gold pistons best 20 bucks I ever spent. 3button Mic works, better sound & didn't crap out a month after I bought them. I've paid 4 times as much for other headphones, for once too good to be true doesn't apply.

Looks pretty nice, and quite amazingly similar to the Android tablet interface.
A new Play Music web interface is rolling out that pulls it closer to the Android experience. If you fire up Google Play Music on the web today you're likely to be greeted by a refreshed interface, pulling it closer in line with what you'd find on an Android phone or tablet. The new look is very familiar to the landscape layout you're already used to seeing on a large tablet today,...

Part of the issue here is most of the Starbucks customer base using the app have account passwords like "monkey123" which barely keep the door closed to social engineering or brute forcing it right open.

It's up to Starbucks to start enforcing stronger password requirements, and maybe even offer two-step auth... At least for things like reloads and balance transfers.
Hackers are stealing money from credit cards, bank and PayPal accounts through the official Starbucks app. You can easily prevent this from occurring by using strong passwords. Starbucks acknowledged that criminals are actively using their official app to obtain personal details as well as gain access to monetary accounts. The criminals create a new gift card, load your money onto...

I would think with modern security brute forcing would be near impossible. Can't they just lock it after n failed attempts? If not then Starbucks maybe should be held at least partially responsible.
