Google’s response to its €2.4bn EU fine is maximum passive-aggressive

Google is finding itself in quite a bit of trouble with the European Commission this morning. The Commission has found that Google violated EU antitrust laws by giving search preference to its own comparison shopping service at the expense of its competitors. As a result, Google is going to have to pay a record fine that climbs into the billions.

This elevator goes in all directions like a Wonkavator

This elevator goes in all directions like a Wonkavator

That odd word isn't some grownup's toy. It is, instead, a coined term that sprung from the genius of famed children's book author Roald Dahl, appearing in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It is a fictional elevator that can travel vertically, horizontally, and even diagonally. Fiction, however, is now a possible reality, thanks to the persistence of German steel mmaker ThyssenKrupp and the power of magnets.

These are the things you can do when you buy an Amazon Echo Show

These are the things you can do when you buy an Amazon Echo Show

When the Amazon Echo launched nearly three years ago, barely anyone knew how to make heads or tails of it. Fast forward to today, even the likes of Google and Apple are seen as trying to catch up with the retail giant. Amazon stepped up its game when it announced the Echo Show, which goes on sale later this week. And to remind everyone what they're really getting when they purchase one, Amazon released some videos showing off what can be done on what is probably the closest we'll get to a real-world Star Trek LCARS.

Minecraft AR hints at what possible with Apple ARKit

Minecraft AR hints at what possible with Apple ARKit

Next to Super Mario Bros., Minecraft is now perhaps the most "repurposed" game in the market, owing to how easily it can be ported to different platforms and new uses cases. So it isn't exactly surprising to have seen it make its way to virtual reality or, in this case, augmented reality. It is, however, almost ironic that "Minecraft AR", which Microsoft owns, would be available first on Apple's soon to be released ARKit platform. It's unofficial, of course, but it already shows how it has the potential to be more accessible this way.

Galaxy Note 8’s rear might disappoint many

Galaxy Note 8’s rear might disappoint many

We might just be counting down weeks before the Galaxy Note 8 is, once and for all, revealed to the public, but there is almost little left to know about the stylus-toting successor to last year's ill-fated model. And thanks to OnLeaks, we might already know exactly what it looks like. And it looks like it will suffer from the Galaxy S8's biggest design flaw and maybe even worse.

Facebook Messenger features want you to do more than just chat

Facebook Messenger features want you to do more than just chat

A little over five years ago, communicating with someone over the Internet meant lines of text and a few ASCII-based emoticons to express emotions that words can't easily say. These days, not only have we gone into audio-visual Internet communication, we have gone beyond them as well. Take, for example, Facebook's latest update to its Messenger chat app that brings all sorts of whimsical expressions, from animated emojis to masks. Because sometimes, a sticker just says its better.

Essential phone inbound, stops by FCC

Essential phone inbound, stops by FCC

FCC sightings don't usually reveal as much juicy details as its TENAA counterpart in China, but they do at least hint at one thing: a device is close to being launched. That is definitely the case here with Andy Rubin's Essential PH-1 Android smartphone. Since we already know much about the device anyway, all that's really left for drooling fans is a launch date. And since it just appeared at the FCC, that date might be sooner rather than later.

Here’s what CEO Pete Lau has to say about OnePlus 5 complaints

If there's one thing that's consistent about OnePlus, it's that every new launch is met by no small amount of criticism. Whether it's about invitation-only availability, faulty hardware, or price, each new OnePlus model seems unable to escape controversy. The startup's latest and greatest is no exception, and we're not even talking about how it looks eerily familiar. Instead, the OnePlus 5's reputation is now being hounded by an expose revealing how, once again, OnePlus is trying to cheat its way through benchmarks.
