OnePlus HeyMelody app updates OnePlus, OPPO earbuds on any phone

US Customs and Border protection may have obstinately labeled them as counterfeit Apple AirPods but OnePlus' wireless earbuds are undoubtedly attractive for their price. And while it does have the OnePlus brand, it can work with any other smartphone just like any other Bluetooth earbuds. There is, however, one caveat and at least one important functionality is sadly limited only to OnePlus phones. Fortunately, that's no longer the case with a new app that can update not just OnePlus Buds but even some of OPPO's.

Motorola Razr 5G from Amazon comes with free fingerprint smudges

Motorola Razr 5G from Amazon comes with free fingerprint smudges

Foldable phones are a sight to behold but, in exchange, are also more fragile than the very first smartphones a decade ago. This dichotomy left Motorola in a bit of a bind. Either ship the Motorola Razr flaunting its flexible screen or make sure it's well protected in transit. Initially, Motorola chose the former but has now changed its mind, deciding that fingerprints smudges and a pinch of worry are worth having to send a new unit for free because the first one got damaged in shipping.

Xbox Game Bar Resources Widgets lets you keep an eye on performance

Despite Microsoft's best efforts to bridge the two worlds, there will always be things that PC gamers do differently from the Xbox counterparts.

Amazon Dash Smart Shelf can detect when supplies are running low

Amazon's Dash line of products started out as single-purpose buttons you could press to order a single product.

That's still too much work, especially in an age of automation and AI.
