If you’ve been patiently awaiting the final "official" release of Google’s sweet, chewy Android 7.0 Nougat goodness, the wait will soon be over. Google released the final developer preview of Nougat earlier this month and is confident enough in its stability and completeness to move forward with an official launch in August. The always

Usually when there's an announcement about data caps, it's bad news for subscribers. Refreshingly, that isn't the case with AT&T, which is raising the ceiling on the amount of data its U-verse customers are able to use. It's a welcome acknowledgement that the Internet is growing and that, collectively, users are spending more time streaming,

Although we were made privy to some details on AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 470 and Radeon RX 460 graphics cards earlier this month, the company today is officially announcing its newest, mainstream members of the Polaris family. Of the two new cards introduced, the RX 470 is the most closely aligned with the midrange Radeon RX 480 (read the

Nintendo really got the gaming community fired up two weeks ago when it announced the NES Classic Edition console. The miniature console packs in 30 classic games, one controller, and hooks up to modern HDTVs with an HDMI cable. The Japanese gaming company, still basking in the glory of Pokémon Go, then doubled down with a preview trailer

Comcast just announced its plans to introduce Xfinity Prepaid Services. This is a pay-as-you-go plan which allows customers to “refill” their subscription at any time for seven- or thirty-day periods. The service will be available later this year in Illinois, Michigan, Georgia, Florida, and Indiana and nationally by the end of 2017. Customers

NVIDIA has historically taken a somewhat different approach when announcing its newest Titan-branded graphics cards, that differs from the measured, methodical launches of its more mainstream consumer products. Tonight’s announcement, however, takes the cake. We just received details from NVIDIA regarding an upcoming ultra-powerful, Pascal-based

If you're a SwiftKey user and have been experiencing some oddities lately: you're not alone. Due to a bug, some SwiftKey users have been receiving some downright bizarre recommendations, including phrases that they never use. Even worse? The software also predicted names and email addresses of other users! Once this discovery was made,

So you’ve finally made the decision to upgrade to Windows 10. Congratulations! You put up the good fight and held out for a year, but with the prospects of paying $119 now staring you in the face, there are likely millions of people like you around the globe in the same situation.

So you went out and purchased yourself a fancy virtual reality headset, now you just need to load up on content, is that it?. As luck would have it, Valve is hosting a VR Weekend Sale on Steam, its digital distribution platform for games, and you can save big money on a plethora of titles, up to 80 percent off on over 175 VR games. If you

Gears of War 4 is already looking like it will be a pretty sweet Xbox One game. PC gamers, however, have a few reasons to get excited about the game as well -- it will boast a number of PC-specific features. Technical director for The Coalition, Mike Rayner, remarked, “Our focus on PC is to deliver a highly optimized, customizable experience

At this point, we’ve learned just about everything we need to know about the Galaxy Note 7. Samsung conveniently skipped the "Note 6" moniker, instead opting for Galaxy Note 7 to more closely align the smartphone with the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7 Active (which has recently been making headlines of its own). Although we have already
