Google MODE made to snap-and-swap for Android (Wear)

Google MODE made to snap-and-swap for Android (Wear)

It would appear that Google would like to get out ahead of the masses when it comes to "plug and play" for hardware. Not just for smartphones. They've got a program in the works for that, too - no, this "MODE" they speak of is for hardware only. Not electronics. Made to attach to electronics, of course, but hardware in and of itself. The first wave of Google's MODE brand is made for Android Wear devices. A series of straps have been made to snap in and out with extreme ease.

iPhone’s best new keyboard comes from Microsoft

iPhone’s best new keyboard comes from Microsoft

The keyboard known as Word Flow has come to iOS this morning, complete with custom backgrounds and one-handed typing features. This app was previously only available for Windows Phone devices - believe it or not - and will now be available optimized for iPhones of all sizes. That means that regardless of if you're using a tiny iPhone SE or the monstrously sized iPhone 6 Plus, this keyboard is sized just right.

Galaxy Note 6 leak tips 2x screen size potential

Galaxy Note 6 leak tips 2x screen size potential

It would seem that though Samsung has reduced the number of headliner devices it's set to release this year, they might still have a dilemma on their hands. It's been suggested by insider sources who wish to remain anonymous that Samsung isn't just considering one version of the Galaxy Note 6 for this August of September. Instead, Samsung is said to be considering whether or not the device will come with a flat display, a curved-edge display, or two different sizes altogether. Could we return to the original Galaxy Note Edge?

How to present an iPhone Pro

How to present an iPhone Pro

In 2015, Apple introduced the iPad Pro - a device that they intended the public to see as an alternative to the oft-underutilized power of the notebook. Why have something more powerful when you're only going to do a few things? On that note, why use a notebook and limit the number of apps you can use when iOS has one of the most explosively innovative app stores in the world right this minute? In the year 2017, on the 10th anniversary of the iPhone (originally introduced in the year 2007), I'd like to imagine Apple will release the iPhone Pro.

Amazon’s “fastest-selling tablet” now comes in tangerine

Amazon’s “fastest-selling tablet” now comes in tangerine

That $50 tablet Amazon introduced not too long ago is coming in several new colors starting this week. Amazon calls the Amazon Fire the company's "fastest-selling tablet ever" - without actually giving any numbers. Maybe they mean they had a footrace in which they sought to find which tablet would be able to be sold the fastest based on the speed of several human runners holding several different forms of payment? We'll have to wait and see.

Listen to podcasts, see live TV listings in Google Search app

Listen to podcasts, see live TV listings in Google Search app

While in the midst of facing a massive antitrust lawsuit in Europe revolving around Android and search, Google is giving its Android Search app even more power. Somewhat ironically, these new features could give OEMs even more reason to stick to Google's apps, for the sake of their users, of course, giving more fodder to the EU's objections. With two new features, users won't even have to dive into web pages or open another app just to see when their favorite show is up or to listen to a podcast.

EU files antitrust charge against Google, this time on Android

EU files antitrust charge against Google, this time on Android

Google is the new Microsoft. At least as far as collecting antitrust lawsuits are concerned. In Europe, the tech giant is once again facing serious charges, this time surrounding the Android mobile operating system. According to the European Commission, Google is using unlawful monopolistic practices that unfairly puts its search and apps, and there its ads, as the dominant, if not only, choice on Android devices, to the detriment of competition and potentially stifling innovation. Naturally denies this and hints that the EC might not exactly understand how Android works.

Galaxy Note 6 detail leaks may give iPhone 7 Plus a run for its money

Galaxy Note 6 detail leaks may give iPhone 7 Plus a run for its money

It would appear that Samsung's schedule for releasing Galaxy phones will once again match up - sort of - with Apple's iPhone. Not just because both devices generally appear ready for the market at around the same time of the year - Autumn. Also because Apple is said to be seeking out OLED panels this time around - at least for a phone with a 5.5-inch display - that'd match up well with the iPhone Plus line thus far. Or perhaps the iPhone 7 Pro?
