Google Calendar finally gets Material Design on desktops

Google Calendar finally gets Material Design on desktops

Google is prone to changing its mind about a lot of things, and sometimes without prior warning. Ironically, it also sometimes takes too long to implement those changes, sometimes ending up too late.

After 20 years, HTC reveals how the sausage is made

For a company whose tagline is "quietly brilliant", it's perhaps no surprise that it's taken some time for HTC to allow anyone behind the scenes of how its phones are designed and manufactured. That all changed this week, with two big milestones: the launch of the new HTC U11 flagship, and HTC's 20th anniversary. To mark the double-occasion, HTC invited media to Taipei, Taiwan, to see where the U11 was born.
