Google EU fine is a double-edged sword that could hurt Android

Google EU fine is a double-edged sword that could hurt Android

The European Commission just slapped Google with a $5 billion fine and gave it 90 days to clean up its act. The reason: Google’s anticompetitive practice that used Android to practically force its Search service and Chrome browser on manufacturers and carriers to the detriment of rival apps and services. Like any issue of this magnitude, it’s not a clear-cut case. And while the European Commission may have the best interests of the Android ecosystem in mind, its demands could end up causing Android harm in the long run as well.

PCs are on the rise again after six years: here’s why

PCs are on the rise again after six years: here’s why

For years now, prophets of doom have been talking about the death of the PC. To some extent, they are right. The PC of old have gone the way of the dodo and today’s PCs have very little in common with them. Last week, both Gartner and IDC published numbers that, for the first time in six years, showed growth for the steadily shrinking market. And while both market researchers advise cautious optimism, it’s hard to deny the trend that their statistics show: the PC isn’t going anywhere.

New MacBook Pro features debris-repelling keyboard, iFixit discovers

As you may have heard, Apple released new MacBook Pros earlier this week, featuring the usual processor and RAM updates, along with True Tone displays. Less touted, however, was an "improved third-generation keyboard" which only promises to offer a quieter typing experience. Apple didn't say anything about making real changes to the keyboard's butterfly switch mechanism, leaving us wondering if they'd even addressed the recently acknowledged "sticky key" problem. As it turns out, they did.

Mission Workshop the Radian Review: The road-warrior’s travel pack

There are plenty of issues with being a frequent traveler, but finding the right bag can be one of the most frustrating - and lead to one of the biggest addictions. Packing for multiple trips, especially back-to-back, can be a challenge, especially when they can vary due to climate, the type of event you'll be attending, and factoring in specific equipment. In short, deciding what to pack is just as important as figuring out what you're going to pack it all in.

NASA’s lost Apollo moon heat probe data: True science is real boring

Today we're having a peek at the recovery of recordings of heat data from NASA's Apollo moon missions in 1971 and 1972. A study published just this week explored data from probes installed on our Earth's Moon during those missions, revealing heat sensor data for the first time ever, publicly. The study is at once both engaging and boring, inspiring and entirely unspectacular. Let's talk about why all of this is good.

Apple will confuse your wallet in 2018

Today we're going to make sense of moves predicted for Apple in the year 2018 with special regard for the iPhone X and your wallet. In the year 2017, headlines that dominated Apple's iPhone event of the year centered on the price of the iPhone X. It was surprising to find an iPhone cost more than the top-tier devices of the past several years. In 2018, Apple may appear to pull a fast one with iPhone X and iPhone X Plus, much like they did with the newest version of the iPad.

If your iPhone does this, get it fixed ASAP

2018 Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster first drive: Fire and brimstone

2018 Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster first drive: Fire and brimstone

If you're not an exhibitionist, I'm pretty confident in saying the 2018 Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster is probably not the car for you. Taking the automaker's most outrageous model and lopping off the roof hardly makes for a vehicle less ostentatious, after all. The Italians may be flirting with practicality with the upcoming Urus SUV, but don't even dream of thinking they've lost sight of why Lamborghini is a poster mainstay on bedroom walls.
