Google Calendar on Android finally gets this feature

There are just some gestures that have become so natural that we’ve come to expect them almost everywhere, especially on smartphones. Pinching (not squeezing), flicking, panning, and even dragging and dropping. In the same vein, we become painfully aware when they’re not there. Like being able to drag and drop events in a calendar app just to change the time. The long wait for Android users is over because, after years of wishing, Google Calendar finally got exactly that feature.

LG G4 Android 7.0 Nougat update available for some models

Some, in fact most, manufacturers have short term memories. They tend to forget devices that sometimes aren’t even that old. Even those that are just 2 years old. Fortunately, LG, who prides itself for being a good Android citizen, hasn’t forgotten yet. Owners of the LG G4 have received notifications to upgrade to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat version. But if you still haven’t gotten it yet, you can manually force your way into Nougat, provided you have the right model.

Intel Clover Trail PCs – security updates until 2023 only

If you were one of the early, and probably disappointed, adopters of the first breed of Windows 8.1 hybrids and convertibles, Microsoft has a good news, bad news thing for you. The good news is that your device is going to be supported for another six years. The bad news is that it only applies to security fixes. As far as “Windows as a Service” is concerned, last year’s Anniversary Update is the end of the line for these devices.

Facebook patents a modular device that could also be a phone

Is the dream of the modular phone dead? Not if you ask Lenovo and Motorola, though their concept of a modular phone is not exactly what you might have in mind. Closer to that dream that went down with Google’s Project Ara is something that Facebook has in mind. Yes, Facebook has an idea for a modular phone. Or rather, it has patented what is technically a generic “modular electromechanical device” that, in at least one permutation, could also function as a phone.

Galaxy Note 8 renders show still rounded corners

The date is no longer a secret. Samsung itself has proudly announced that it will be holding an Unpacked event on 23rd August. And while it doesn’t mention it by name, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see Samsung’s not so subtle hints at a Galaxy Note 8 device. What Samsung hasn’t revealed, naturally, is how the “bigger” phablet will look. Thankfully, case maker Ghostek isn’t so shy about showing that off, revealing was looks to be simply a bigger Galaxy S8+.

Call of Duty: WWII Nazi Zombies trailer revealed (officially this time)

We got a look at the Nazi Zombies in the upcoming Call of Duty: WWII game a few days ago, but we weren't supposed to. That leak spoiled the fun for Activision, perhaps, but gave fans their first look at the nazis that will be included in the franchise's next iteration. Following on its heels comes the official trailer for the game...or, specifically, for the nazi zombies part of it, arguably the part we care most about.

Fidget spinners branded mind-controlling western evil by Russia

Fidget spinners branded mind-controlling western evil by Russia

Fidget spinners -- they came from seemingly nowhere to win the hearts and empty hours of youth across the world, and Russia isn't happy about it. The nation has been spouting some odd anti-fidget spinner nonsense as of late, indicating that they may be a diabolical anti-Russia trinket from the West set to zombify and turn Russian youth. In case this sounds like a joke, it's not: the nation is officially 'investigating' the toy.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Review: The anti-MacBook Pro

Microsoft Surface Laptop Review: The anti-MacBook Pro

Microsoft knows how to make sleek hardware. If the Surface Book is handsome but bulky, and the Surface Pro is more minimalistic but suffers a less-compelling keyboard, then the Surface Laptop falls happily in-between. You don't get a fancy detachable display, no, or even a 360-degree hinge. Instead, it's a neatly finished, beguiling traditional laptop form-factor with some eminently pleasing material decisions.

This event invite revealed the day of the event and the timing, too: August 23rd, 2017, at 11AM EDT (that's 11AM Eastern, New York time, 8AM Pacific.)
