This new feature allows users to ask questions of their followers with a sticker.

YouTube Incognito mode on Android: what it is and how to get it

It is an unfortunate and maybe unnecessary fact of digital life that you are being tracked no matter what you do. While there may be legit reasons for doing so and benefits offered in exchange, some would prefer not to be tracked at all, even if only for a moment. That’s what incognito, a.k.a. private, modes are for and now YouTube users on will be able to enjoy a moment of privacy for their viewing activities.

Nokia 5.1 Plus renders hint at a Nokia X6 for the rest of us

Nokia 5.1 Plus renders hint at a Nokia X6 for the rest of us

HMD Global has so far proven itself to be a very admirable Android OEM that is returning the Nokia brand to its former glory. While its numbering scheme seems to be just as puzzling as the old Nokia, it is also producing well-designed and affordable devices with a commitment to pure Android and fast updates. But even HMD Global has been affected by the notch fever that is gripping the market. And if you thought you were safe because the Nokia X6 is confined to China, leaks of a Nokia 5.1 Plus might shatter that illusion.

Galaxy Watch name confirmed, Samsung Bixby inside

This year might be a slow one for Samsung. The Galaxy S9, despite re-imagining the camera, isn’t doing so hot. The Galaxy Note 9 due in a month may have a few tricks up its sleeve to make it more interesting than what it so far looks like. The most interesting Samsung product this year, however, might ironically come from its least interesting line: smartwatches. Its name, its OS, and its features are pretty much still in flux, which, at the very least, makes it sound a bit more exciting.

Firefox Lockbox, Notes bring desktop tech to mobile

Mozilla’s Firefox browser may have had a successful run on the desktop but it hasn’t been smooth-sailing when it came to mobile. That’s especially true for iOS where it was only recently that it was able to actually have an actual web browser for iPhones and iPads. In the meantime, it has seemingly fallen by the wayside compared to Google’s Chrome and Apple’s Safari. With its Test Pilot experiments, Mozilla aims to bring some of its desktop features and technologies to smartphones, like passwords on iOS and notes on Android.

TicWatch Pro dual-layered smartwatch is here

Smartwatches have a two-fold problem. First is how they sometimes feel like a solution in search of a problem. The more pressing problem, however, is the short, often less than 24-hour, battery life. Smartwatch makers Mobvoi can’t really answer the first but is offering a solution for the second. With the new TicWatch Pro that’s launching today, you can get two, even three, days of use. The secret, if you haven’t heard yet, is that it has two screens instead of one.
