Yahoo Mail app becomes a “free for all” email client

Yahoo Mail app becomes a “free for all” email client

Let’s face it. Having a Yahoo email address these days is seen as a stigma and a liability. Aside from being “old”, recent revelations have called into question the security of having a Yahoo account. As such, it won’t be surprising if Yahoo experienced a mass exodus of users trying to protect themselves from hacks and massive leaks. Attempting to keep its email app from descending into obsolescence, Yahoo is now removing the requirement to have a Yahoo account to use its Yahoo Mail app, potentially turning it into something akin to a third-party email client like K-9, Boxer, CloudMagic and the like.

Google Play Store My Apps section is now a bit more usable

Google Play Store My Apps section is now a bit more usable

Give how easy it is to install apps, especially free ones, on Android, it’s only a matter of time before your list of apps becomes out of control. For all its experience in sorting and grouping search results, Google has done a rather dismal job at making it easier to sort through your apps in Google Play Store. That now changes with its addition of a sorting option to the My Apps section in the Google Play Store app.

The Galaxy S8 is surprisingly resilient to torture

The Galaxy S8 is surprisingly resilient to torture

This years flagships look mighty beautiful but also delicate. There is glass everywhere, both front and back. That is true for the LG G6, the HTC U Ultra, and, of course, the Samsung Galaxy S8. With the new style of smartphones comes a pressing question: how durable will these smartphones be? Will their classy look lead to more spider web fractures than we can care about? Will scratches abound as much as fingerprint smudges? Will they crack under the pressure of your posterior? Based on JerryRigEverything's test of the Galaxy S8, the answer to those is a reassuring "no".

Nat & Friends take a look at the new Google Earth

Nat & Friends take a look at the new Google Earth

Earlier this week, Google gave Earth some much-needed love. Not the literal Earth, of course, but Google Earth. More or less 10 years old, Google Earth hasn’t exactly aged well with Google’s other services, especially its cousin, Google Maps. With the “re-launch” of Google Earth, however, the question of how exactly was it made naturally comes up. Just like with other Google Project, Nat & Friends interview the people involved to bring that answer to the public.

HTC teases a squeezable U event next month

HTC teases a squeezable U event next month

HTC just can’t catch a break in the smartphone market. Just when you thought the HTC 10 would be a winner, it fails to capture the market by storm. The HTC U Ultra’s super shiny facade wasn’t also enough to fend off criticism of its less than impressive features. All these isn’t new to HTC and the Taiwanese company isn’t one to easily give up either. Against all odds, it will be launching yet another “U” branded smartphone, and it has marked a May date to do just that.

Microsoft To-Do set to replace Wunderlist, preview now out

Microsoft To-Do set to replace Wunderlist, preview now out

When Microsoft sunsetted the popular Sunrise calendar app that it acquired, there were fears that it would do likewise when it acquired popular list app Wunderlist. Consider those fears well-founded as Microsoft releases the preview version of the generic-sounding Microsoft To-Do. It's too early to say if To-Do will be able to match up to the standards set by Wunderlist, but Microsoft made it unambiguously clear. Wunderlist is on its way out.

Pokemon GO Spoofing update: the gift and the curse

Pokemon GO Spoofing update: the gift and the curse

Now that the Pokemon GO Easter Event is nearly over and the closest update is probably a week away or more, it's time to get serious. This game has needed a fix since a week or two after it started, and the time to update is now. With as much stability as Niantic has now with servers and over a year into the game's life, it's time to end the reign of the Spoofers. And the bots, of course, but the Spoofers first and foremost.

The Galaxy S8 gives one great Note 7 feature a second chance

The Galaxy S8 gives one great Note 7 feature a second chance

The Note 7 may be dead - or, at least, as good as dead - but its legacy carries on in some small but highly useful ways in the Galaxy S8. Samsung's new flagship smartphone for 2017 has been getting consistently positive reviews around the internet this week - from myself included - though early users still have a couple of criticisms. One of those sent me out looking for a feature I'd almost forgotten about on the last Note, what with the whole battery distraction.

Instagram for Android now works offline, iOS may be next

Instagram for Android now works offline, iOS may be next

Instagram is introducing offline features in its Android app that will enable users to in some way utilize the service without an Internet connection. The same features may make their way to the iOS version eventually, but that rollout hasn't taken place yet. The move appears to be a new way to cater to users in developing countries where mobile Internet access is limited and where users may want to download content while on a WiFi hotspot before venturing out beyond it.

Ming-Chi Kuo chimes in on Galaxy S8 sales, Galaxy Note 8 features

Ming-Chi Kuo chimes in on Galaxy S8 sales, Galaxy Note 8 features

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is best known for his insights on Apple's devices, particularly iPhones, that hit the mark most of the time. So when he does make the rare Android forecast, it's probably a good thing to listen. With the Galaxy S8 already well into its first week in the market, Kuo is making some predictions on the Galaxy Note 8's features. Particularly, its dual cameras. At the same time, he is revising KGI's expectations for the Galaxy S8 because of its "better than expected" reception.
