Gmail gets iPhone X support and a big new feature

Google has finally pushed out a Gmail iOS update that adds support for the iPhone X's beautiful, slightly unusual display. The notch is no longer at odds with the app's interface, which now plays nicely with the "ears" on either side of it. This is the latest of multiple Google app updates that have pushed out iPhone X support, the most recent one before this being Google Maps. iPhone X support isn't the only thing found in this Gmail update, though.

Google and Amazon are in the middle of a squabble of some sort and its customers are suffering as a result.

Teaching kids to code at an early age might be a hot and sometimes hotly debated topic these days, but as early as the 60s, there were already some computer scientists and educators blazing that trail. Sure, it may not have the sophisticated robotics or even fancy graphics of today’s tools, but the Logo programming language has been the first blush with programming of those who would eventually run Silicon Valley and, by extension, the world.

Fortunately, that whole scare seems to have blown over on its own before Google could finally get the fix out the door today.

It's almost as if Razer is trying to tell the end user that they've bought into a device that's more than just the Android phone they find at the top of this box. Inside is the work of a team of engineers that are obviously proud of the work they've done.
