How do I get “free” Pokemon GO coins?

Pokemon GO players find an obvious (yet hidden) method for gaining "free" coins in this global phenomenon of a game.

Chrome apps for Mac, Windows and Linux are being phased out

Chrome apps for Mac, Windows and Linux are being phased out

If you’re a Windows, Mac or Linux user, the odds are really, really low that you’re also a Chrome apps user. According Google, only about one percent of the users on those platforms are ‘actively’ utilizing packaged Chrome apps, and so as you probably guessed, there’s not much sense in continuing support for them. For this reason, Google has decided that all new Chrome apps published starting later this year will only be available on Chrome OS; support for existing apps for Mac, Windows and Linux will be phased out over the next couple of years.

Galaxy S7 dual-SIM accessory hacks your hardware (in a good way)

Galaxy S7 dual-SIM accessory hacks your hardware (in a good way)

This week the folks at Simore have created an interesting accessory for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. This device uses a thin strip of wiring (basically the same as you'd find inside a phone normally) to connect both a SIM-card-sized faux-card to a dual-SIM card tray. One rests inside the SIM card tray of the Galaxy S7, the other rests outside the device entirely. NOTE: This device doesn't "HACK" hardware in any malicious sense - it just gives the device additional functionality that wouldn't otherwise be possible.
