Galaxy Note 6 may be biggest (Note) release ever

This Autumn it would appear that Samsung is keeping their full attention on the Galaxy Note 6 - and not just in the USA. While last year's release of the Galaxy Note 5 ended up being less-than-pleasing for certain members of the European Union (who didn't see a local release at all), this year Samsung's bringing heat to the Note for the whole world.

You'll create a space based on a topic then invite users via messaging, email, social network, or "whatever way you like." We can imagine this will be used in ways both intended and beyond what Google intended in short order.

Google AI pens dark poems after being force-fed 11k books

How do humans make an artificial intelligence system better at conversations? One method-in-testing is a project in which a Google AI was force-fed 2,865 romance books, about 1,500 fantasy books, and more. The work was done by researchers with Google Brain, and involved feeding a total of 11,000 unpublished books to the neural network, then testing whether it could take a couple sentences from the book and create its own corresponding phrases. The results sound like cryptic, dark poems.

We've seen a few interesting ones, including one from Microsoft, who already has their own mobile platform to worry about. Since Google knows a thing or two about smartphones, I decided to go ahead and install it on my iPhone 6, and it may be the best keyboard I've used on my iPhone to date.

Gboard for iPhone is missing Google’s smartest feature

Gboard for iPhone is missing Google’s smartest feature

Google launches their own keyboard for iOS, creating a conundrum in the minds of both Android users and iOS users alike. For Android users, the question rests squarely in the "why did you favor iOS over your own operating system". That's a question Android fans have been asking of Google developers since they first started releasing apps and software experiences for iPhone back in 2007. For iOS users, the question is of the missing feature from this keyboard - one of the best bits about being an Android user with Google's assistance.

NVIDIA SHIELD multiplayer game Ultimate Chicken Horse Review : Killer Cute

What we've experienced today is the DIY-base living room gaming equivalent of Exploding Kittens. While EK is a card game as well as an awesome mobile game, the game Ultimate Chicken Horse is a bit of a race. You choose from 1 of 4 animals, choose a level, and go to work getting from point A to point B. But it's not that simple. Only - at the same time - it really IS that simple.
