Here are 6 runs from AGDQ 2017 you need to watch

ZTE Hawkeye crowdsourced phone specs are mid-range at best

ZTE Hawkeye crowdsourced phone specs are mid-range at best

ZTE announced the formal name and existence of its first, and probably last, crowdsourced smartphone back at CES earlier this month. So it's a bit puzzling that it chose to withhold the actual specs of such an equally puzzling smartphone until the last minute. Well it is finally spilling all the beans about the ZTE Hawkeye, the product formerly known as Project CSX ("Crowd Source X"). Now the question whether it's to late for those details to do its struggling Kickstarter any good.

VIZIO Crave 360, Crave Pro speakers get some Spotify love

VIZIO Crave 360, Crave Pro speakers get some Spotify love

VIZIO is a brand better known for its TVs, both traditional and smart, but of late it has been making huge strides to leave a mark in the connect speaker market segment. Last September, it unveiled its Crave 360 and Crave Pro Cast-enabled multi-room speakers, encroaching on Sonos’ territory. Now VIZIO, which is being acquired by Chinese tech giant LeEco, is stepping up its challenge by striking a partnership with Spotify. Starting today, actually starting last Christmas, owners of Crave 360 and Crave Pro speakers will be able to cast their Spotify tunes to the speakers just as easily as any Chromecast-enabled device.

Nintendo Switch eschews bundled games to keep price down

The Nintendo Switch is unconventional in more ways than one. In addition to its unorthodox hybrid form factor, its launch is also a bit unusual, almost unsettling. Breaking away not just from its own tradition but that of other consoles as well, Nintendo won’t be launching the Switch with any bundled games, not even its own 1-2-Switch “tech demo”. That, according to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, was a decision made in order to keep the Switch price down to $299.99, nothing more, nothing less.

macOS Sierra will soon warn if your display sucks up battery

macOS Sierra will soon warn if your display sucks up battery

If there were three things that defined the late 2016 MacBook Pros, they’d be the Touch Bar, Thunderbolt 3 ports, and contentious battery life. Apple has received no small amount of flak, warranted or not, for the not so 10 hours of battery life promised by the company. Apple has taken those criticisms seriously and implemented some measures to refute those claims, or at least make sure that it won’t be blamed for them. Its latest countermeasure was quietly added to the fourth beta for macOS Sierra 10.12.3 which now warns users if their displays are so bright they’re using up those precious battery minutes.

Galaxy S8, S8 Plus leaked dimensions show some interesting screens

While still waiting for Samsung’s official and hopefully final excuse explanation for the whole Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, we could do with a bit more Galaxy S8 speculation. Especially with its expected MWC 2017 reveal inching ever closer. This latest tidbit doesn’t show beyond a sliver of a doubt the final smartphone’s appearance. Instead, it only leaves us with figures of the Galaxy S8’s, as well as the Galaxy S8 Plus’, supposed sizes. But if these numbers are correct, we’re in for some interesting screen sizes next month.

Original NVIDIA SHIELD gets its game-changing update next week

It must have been an emotional roller coaster for owners of the original NVIDIA SHIELD.
