SHIELD Tablet K1 to be first non-Nexus tablet with Marshmallow

SHIELD Tablet K1 to be first non-Nexus tablet with Marshmallow

Back when NVIDIA started to join the Android mobile device market in earnest, with the now called SHIELD Portable gaming handheld, the chip maker was well regarded for being a very good Android citizen. It treated its devices almost like a Nexus, with very minimal customizations and constant updates. The jubilation around that has somewhat died out, though NVIDIA is now trying to reclaim that title.

Google Photos update turns it into a social network

No, Google didn't just turn Google Photos into Google+. Instead, they've updated the app to include Shared Albums, meaning you will be able to upload photos to an album that all of your contacts can see.

We’re already cyborgs: how screens have stolen our eyes

We’re already cyborgs: how screens have stolen our eyes

Some coffee shops have stopped, or refused to even begin, offering Wi-Fi in their establishments. The goal is noble: to get people to either talk to each other or bury their heads in books or notebooks. It might be an effective strategy if not for the prevalence of 4G even 3G connections in those areas as well. But while almost comic in nature, anecdotes such as these do hint at an underlying truth: that people have become attached, even dependent, on their mobile devices to the point of almost becoming a part of their body, if not their person.
