Vine update improves search with top posts option

Vine update improves search with top posts option

Vine has pushed out an update for its iOS app (and will be doing so soon for its Android app) that improves one's ability to search for content. It is a relatively small update, but it brings with it increased ways to find content that might be relevant to your query -- or that maybe just happens to catch your eye while searching for something else. The change comes to the "Explore" tab, where users can search for whatever and get a look at the top and/or recent posts from relevant feeds.

Pebble points finger at Apple in app delay issues

Pebble points finger at Apple in app delay issues

If you're a Pebble user, you're likely aware that the smartwatch company has a bit of an app delay happening in regards to its iOS offerings, and users are starting to get rowdy about it. The Pebble Time app for the iPhone has been delayed, and the company issued a statement about it today, putting the blame on Apple for delaying the review process. Says the company, the app’s in-review status “pains us as much it does backers with watches ready to set up”, and now it is encouraging its customers to contact Apple themselves to try to get the ball rolling.

YouTube adds analytics tool for artists

YouTube adds analytics tool for artists

YouTube has announced a new tool specifically for its artists, one that provides analytics data for a more thorough look at one’s fan base in all its nuance and splendor. The feature comes as part of the relatively new YouTube for Artists website, and it is called most appropriately “Music Insights”. With it — at least when properly utilized — YouTube’s artists will be able to grow their fan base by tweaking what they offer based on what the numbers and statistics show.

Imgur’s first native Android app goes live

Imgur’s first native Android app goes live

Imgur has finally released its first fully native Android app, which is up now in the Google Play Store. The app was built from the ground up and aims to bring Imgur's glut of amusing content to mobile Android users in a way that hasn't thus far been fully satisfied (while there have been some Imgur Android offerings, they've largely been limited). That ends today, with Android users (most of them, anyway) now having access to a mobile offering akin to what iOS users have been enjoying for a couple months.

Windows 10 preview build 10130: Cortana shortcut and more

Windows 10 preview build 10130: Cortana shortcut and more

Microsoft has pushed out the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview build, bringing it to build 10130. Because the builds are fairly far along at this point, they no longer bring with them big changes that add big features — rather, at this point, it’s more polishing things up and tweaking things when needed. As such, you’ll find a lot of smaller changes with build 10130, perhaps some that you were hoping would happen, including things as simple as a new shortcut for Cortana to customization of the Start experience.

Google Maps rolls out traffic alerts and alternate routes

Google Maps rolls out traffic alerts and alternate routes

Memorial Day is just around the corner and for some, nay many, that means a lot of traveling. And when traveling is involved, especially by land, then headaches and tempers caused by traffic are as well. Just in time for the holiday, however, Google is coming to the rescue of drivers across the country. The search giant has updated Google Maps to include more vital information when navigating roads, including alerts for unusual traffic conditions, road congestions, and even suggestions for alternate paths to take.

Dropbox’s web image preview now supports even PSD, AI, EPS

Dropbox’s web image preview now supports even PSD, AI, EPS

If those three acronyms made sense to you, congratulations, you're a designer! Or at least someone who's in the loop. While Dropbox has a commanding presence on mobile and on the desktop, there are some moments when all you have is a web browser. And usually in those moments, download a large Photoshop PSD file is not only time consuming, it might also be futile since you wouldn't have the proper software to open it. Thank goodness, then, that Dropbox thought of supporting those files out of the, well, box.

‘Cities: Skylines’ update: some mods lost, but tunnels arrive

‘Cities: Skylines’ update: some mods lost, but tunnels arrive

The game that lets you create your own cities, aptly named Cities: Skylines, has received a pretty big update today, and with it comes the addition of a bunch of new buildings and oft-requested tunnels. For some, though, it’ll also bring some bad news as some mods will be disabled as a result. Version 1.1.0, which is the latest version, will require “many” mods to be updated by whomever created them, otherwise they’ll be relegated to one’s memory and those who refuse to update.

Chrome extensions will only be available through web store

Chrome extensions will only be available through web store

As of early last year, and as first announced in late 2013, Chrome extensions had to be on the Chrome Web Store in order to be downloaded — for Windows users, that is. The move was an effort to improve security by preventing malicious extensions from being downloaded from some random web location and installed. Google says that it saw a lot of success with this, and so it will be extending its scope in the near future. In doing so, Chrome may be more secure for all.

Sonos 5.4 will finally give PLAY:1 some love

Sonos 5.4 will finally give PLAY:1 some love

It's been nearly two years since Sonos unveiled its PLAY:1 streaming speakers, though there have definitely been some special editions of it since then. Today, Sonos is showing that it hasn't forgotten about it nor has it abandoned the faithful fans who purchased one. The latest 5.4 update makes the speakers still relevant by improving its output quality. Of course, that's not the only thing that Sonos is pulling in. It is also emphasizing its commitment to rid your home theater system of restricting and tangling cables.

Periscope update finally lets you change your mugshot

Periscope update finally lets you change your mugshot

It's hard to imagine that Periscope, Twitter's almost preempted livestreaming service, is six weeks old now. But that's exactly the message that is being sent out now that uipdate 1.0.4 is starting to roll out to users. The update brings in features some of which, in all honesty, should have been there since day one, like being able to change your profile pic. It's still forgivable though, if you imagine Twitter suddenly scrambling to get Periscope out the door after Meerkat went public and become hot.

Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 OTA update out now – factory image too!

Four days after mentioning the update to the public, Google is now pushing Android 5.1.1 to the Nexus 9 tablet.
