How this Pokemon GO update makes Unown medal easier to catch and complete

How this Pokemon GO update makes Unown medal easier to catch and complete

News in the latest Pokemon GO update includes a change in the way the most mysterious Unown is shown in the game. The first step in making this update appear is to capture an Unown - for that, there is no simple solution outside of cheating. For those that are the sort of people who've given up on all other methods of capturing Pokemon like Unown, there's always hacking - but I hope those folks don't come running when the ban hammer hits again. And it's coming, again and again, we can be sure.

Acer Holo 360 is an Android camera… but also a phone

The Acer Holo 360 camera was unveiled today at a special event held by Acer and broadcast around the world. This device works with Wi-Fi connectivity and can also connect to mobile data (LTE speed) with a SIM card.

Samsung’s new app replies for you when you’re driving

Despite being life-threatening, not to mention illegal in some countries, drivers still can't seem to keep their mitts off their phones when they should be on the steering wheel. Hands-free controls and calls can only go so far and doesn't cover one of the most common uses of phones while driving: text messaging. To make sure drivers no longer have an excuse not to keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel, Samsung is developing an app that will automatically reply for you and let the other person know not to bother you unless it's a real emergency.

The latter two are the subjects of this most recent leak that paints the Moto E4 Plus in a rather positive light, save for one understandable flaw.

Moto X Pure Edition from 2015 gets a Nougat update

Moto X Pure Edition from 2015 gets a Nougat update

The sad fact about Android is that youth is never an assurance of timely updates. Even a year-old phone may not get the latest software updates, depending on the resources, business sense, mercy, and whim of its manufacturer. So when a 2015 smartphone is given a late 2016 Android update, the fuss is understandable. That is exactly what is happening when Lenovo unexpectedly released an Android 7.0 update for the Moto X Pure Edition, giving the phone one last hoorah before retirement.

Google Pixel camera’s low-light abilities are stunning in new analysis

We've seen the camera put to the test multiple times, but few analyses compare to the one recently completed by Google Research itself. In the tests, the Pixel camera was able to capture stunning shots of space using only starlight, among other things. The Nexus 6P was also tested, and one shot rivaled a DSLR's photo of the same subject.

Massive, I'm telling you - you might end up feeling better about this if you take TWO grains of salt with it. Thanks to a bit of code in an Android code commit, we're able to see that at least one Google engineer has access to an actual, physical Pixel 2 - or whatever it'll end up being called.
