No, your phone’s battery isn’t spying on you

A video showing an NFC-clad sticker on a battery in a smartphone has gone viral today. This video suggests that this smartphone was using an NFC sticker to "record every photo of yours on your battery." What we're going to need to do right now is get very serious and very clear about this situation. Your battery - and the NFC antenna that may or may not be attached to it - is not stealing your photos and sending them to our estranged government overlords. It's just not.

Messenger drops Facebook account requirement

Facebook Messenger offers more features than chatting, and some use it even if they don't bother with their Facebook account.

The change has arrived with both the Android and the iOS apps.

Google Music “free” Review: turning Apple Music’s tide

Google Music “free” Review: turning Apple Music’s tide

Google ads advertisement-supported "free" streaming radio stations to their Google Music service.

Galaxy A8 might be Samsung’s thinnest yet, hits TENAA, FCC

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge might have taken most of the spotlight when it comes to Samsung's roster, but that doesn't mean those are the only interesting ones in its lineup. The Galaxy A series launched last year to bring a semblance of premium, non-plastic design to a mid-range market, which did indeed make a few heads turn. Now the latest addition to that family might again be notable. The Galaxy A8, spotted in TENAA and the FCC could very well be Samsung's thinnest smartphone.
