Galaxy S8 update will hopefully fix red tinted displays

The Galaxy S8 goes into wide release around the world today, and while many reviews have been very positive, there's still at least one early issue to look out for.

It has become a race to who gets to put it out publicly, with the rest left to be called imitators. Sometimes even thieves.

Because, as early as now, based on an uncorroborated leak, it's already being called a Xiaomi Mi 6 copycat.

Motorola, however, isn't as impressed and isn't willing to take another commercial, not to mention financial, risk. The Android Wear pioneer's withdrawal from the smartwatch market has some worried about getting the latest Android Wear 2.0 on their wrists. Fortunately, Google's official Android Wear Twitter account does confirm that it's coming. But it won't be coming as fast as you might have wished.

Niantic still hasn’t solved Pokemon GO’s biggest problem

The latest Pokemon GO update was claimed to stop spoofers and hackers alike, but in reality it's only cut out a chunk of cheaters. While Niantic continues to play a tough game of cat and mouse with the hacker community, 3rd-party bot-makers remain one step ahead of the game. Users profiting from Pokemon GO's underground of automated Pokemon GO gameplay - they're the ones with the most potential cash to lose.
