With Google Pixel, the Android promise fulfilled, at last!

This October Google will have fulfilled the promise they've been making on the Android operating system for the past decade. In the year 2005, Google acquired Android.

Google will be panned for copying Apple's game plan with these devices, but these devices will be exactly what consumers want, and will buy.

The Best iPhone 7 and 7 Plus Cases in 2016

While we like to fawn over the design and finish of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, there's a cold hard truth most of us don't want to address: we're just going to stick it in a case.

macOS Sierra has landed: here’s what you’re getting

While we’re still waiting for a refreshed MacBook line, Apple has gotten the Mac ball rolling with the official release of macOS Sierra.

Siri unlocks door for a neighbor without owner’s permission

Some find Siri very helpful, though perhaps only those that the virtual assistant actually understands, but there is such a thing as being too helpful.

Despite being locked by an August Home Smart Lock, controlled Apple HomeKit via an iPad, said neighbor was given easy entry by doing nothing more than shouting “Hey, Siri, unlock the door!”
