Microsoft says Windows 10 to receive two big updates in 2017

Pokemoji is an emoji keyboard for Pokemon GO addicts

A project hatched in April caught the feel and the fervor present in the full launch of Pokemon GO this past month. That project was posted on Behance as Pokemoji Keyboard. Realized as a design project - not quite a fully-published app, Pokemoji would be the most awesome and awesomely-simple interpretation of Pokemon graphics on any mobile chat platform. Straight from Laureen Minet and Kévin Magalhaes from Lille, France, this is Pokemoji.

Chrome for Android now loads videos faster and uses less energy

Chrome for Android is now up to version 52, and with it comes a handful of benefits, not the least of which is demonstrably faster video load speeds.

As well, video playback is now more energy efficient, meaning you won’t see your phone or tablet’s battery die so quickly.

This launcher works with its own Google Now button (or Google button, if you prefer) for universal searches. It also has a brand new slide-up app drawer.

Pokemon GO Articuno video is fake: here’s how they did it

Pokemon GO users on YouTube have caught legendary birds like Articuno and Moltres, ultra-rare Pokemon like Mewtwo and Ditto, and every oddity in-between. How could they possibly have done such a thing? Is there a glitch in the game? Have they cheated? Not so much. They've done nothing of the sort.

Android now watches user accounts, tattles with notifications

Android now watches user accounts, tattles with notifications

Android devices will soon be working with native notifications that'll tell their user that their account has been used on a new device. When a user signs in on a new device, every other device they have (on Android) will see a notification telling them that they've had a sign-in on a new device. This will be helpful for people that are in danger of having their account stolen, as they'll already be aware of every time they themselves sign in, but will be able to protect themselves at first sign of any unusual activity.

Niantic is the worst part of Pokemon GO

Niantic is the worst part of Pokemon GO

A team of developers called Niantic created Pokemon GO. They saw this April Fool's Joke just like everyone else in the world, and saw potential. Once they received the GO-ahead, they got to work, splitting their staff between working on their already-active game Ingress and the game that'd be built on the progress they'd already made: Pokemon GO. What went wrong?

Pokemon GO update reset account bug: what to do

A large OOPS has been found in the most recent Pokemon GO Update download, one that makes it appear that accounts have been reset. It'll look to the user like they're starting over from zero.

If you know of anyone that's freaking out over this reset, please let them know that they have nothing to fear.

Review: Bear notes app for Mac

Review: Bear notes app for Mac

A new app has caught the attention of Mac users far and wide -- it's called Bear, and it promises to be the only notes app you need. Getting your hands on Bear isn't easy, at least not right now, as it is still in beta and rolling out to interested users in limited batches. If you're waiting for your own download link, be patient -- Bear is absolutely worth the wait. Apple's own Notes app looks positively archaic in comparison.
