Google Awareness APIs will give your apps more context about your behavior, but will this come at the cost of user privacy? #News #Google #GoogleNow
We first caught a glimpse of Google Awareness APIs back at Google I/O 2016. Now the search giant is finally making these context sensitive resources available to developers, meaning apps will soon have a much stronger understanding of your behavior.These APIs will let app developers call for a number of different kinds of contexts including your general location, the local weather, user activity (such as walking or running), and the location of a...

I really don't see how some company knowing I'm biking or walking changes anything in my life. Don't care.

Curious about what Huawei has in store for the latter part of 2016? Well, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer. The company has all but confirmed that their next big reveal will take place right before IFA 2016, which occurs from September 2 to September 7.

Google has just announced that they’re working on a platform that seeks to make the basics of programming accessible to children age five and up. #News #Google
Google has just announced that they’re working on a platform that seeks to make the basics of programming accessible to children age five and up. The project, called Bloks, isn’t a commercial endeavor, but rather a kind of proof of concept. Google is developing the technology in the hopes that commercial entities might see the potential in it and begin developing such toys for retail.The early versions of the technology that Google demos in their...

If you could buy Chinese smartphones running stock Android would you be more likely to buy them? Just how important is the software layer of a phone to you? #Features #Huawei #Lenovo
A few years back when Chinese phones were still very much confined to China, many of us were eagerly awaiting the day when they would finally spread into Western markets. But there was then – and largely still is – one big problem that makes Chinese phones less attractive to the average Western consumer: Chinese interfaces are, generally speaking, pretty awful to most Western tastes. The hardware is increasingly exceptional, but only the dedicate...

Is it a smartphone or a phablet? Is 6.44 inches too big for a daily driver? We answer these and more in this, our Xiaom Mi Max review! #Reviews #MIUI #SmartphoneReviews
Recently, several smartphone manufacturers have introduced extra-large smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy A9, LeEco Le Max 2, and Huawei P8 Max. While flagship smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and HTC 10 have trended around 5.2' for display size, Xiaomi has ignored this trend entirely for their first humongous smartphone: the Xiaomi Mi Max.With a 6.44' display, the Mi Max is much larger than what many would consider normal, and it de...

We're seeing the LG Nexus 5X going for $240 on Ebay, which undercuts the previous all-time-low price by sixty bucks. Pretty stellar deal! #Deals #News #eBay
In the market for an upper-mid range smartphone that offers some great specs at a reasonable price? Well, have we got a deal for you. The Nexus 5X was already a well-priced offering when it released in the fall of last year, but now we’re seeing it go on Ebay for the incredible price of $240.This is the lowest we’ve ever seen the LG Nexus 5X go, with the previous record being a cool $300 from Amazon. A drop of 60 bucks is certainly nothing to sne...

Cozmo is a robot designed to have a distinct personality that adapts and changes to its environment thanks to a powerful AI engine. #News #AI #ArtificialIntelligence
Anki has just unveiled a little robot companion that reminds us quite a bit of Disney’s WALL-E. Meant to be a prototype on the robotic personality frontier, Cozmo comes equipped with an advanced ‘emotion engine’ that allows it to engage and respond to its environment in a variety of unpredictable ways. It is, in a sense, a character.The playful little bot delights in destruction, snores when it’s on its charger, recognizes different people’s face...

Google has updated the quality of its imagery in both Google Earth and Google Maps' satellite view with new imaging technology from the Landsat 8 satellite. #News #Google #GoogleEarth
When it comes to technology, bigger numbers are typically better – from battery capacity, pixel density, RAM and so on – but the same is also true of satellites (I guess). Google has just announced it has upgraded its satellite imagery from the Landsat 7 satellite to, you guessed it, the Landsat 8. But it's not just a shiny new satellite imagery we're getting either, cos Google also has an all-new image processing technique too.This is great news...

Right now you can get the Gear VR for just $79. A number of Gear VR compatible Samsung Galaxy phones are also on sale. #Deals #News #Samsung
The HTC Vive and Oculus Rift might be the go-to options for those looking to dive into VR head first, with price no object. Unfortunately, for many of us, price is a very important factor. For those looking to experience a growing, thriving VR ecosystem on the cheap, the Samsung Gear VR is without a doubt the option we’d recommend.Sure, not all the games are of the highest caliber, but for every dud, you’ll find an instant VR classic like Eve: Gu...
