Google Duo’s audio-only calls is finally global

Google Duo’s audio-only calls is finally global

Google really can't make up its mind when it comes to its communication apps and services. From Google Talk to Hangouts to the newly renamed Android Messaging, Google changes names, features, and apps as regularly as the phases of the moon. Even its latest "simplified" video calling app isn't immune to that trend. Google Duo, which was designed to be a dead simple way to have one-on-one video calls is now also becoming a dead simple way to make audio-only calls, with the feature now rolling out worldwide.

iPad Pro Review Addendum: 1-year later, still sketchin’

iPad Pro Review Addendum: 1-year later, still sketchin’

I've officially been using the iPad Pro - the first one - for a full year. It's actually been more than a year if you count my time with my first review unit. In any case, I've been making use of a 12.9-inch original iPad Pro since March of 2016. Since then there's been no single smart device (other than a smartphone) that I've used so consistently.

Surface beats iPad in JD Power tablet satisfaction survey for first time ever

Surface beats iPad in JD Power tablet satisfaction survey for first time ever

The JD Power 2017 U.S. Tablet Satisfaction Study has shown the Microsoft Surface Tablet line to top the iPad for the first time since the study began. Granted, that's not an incredibly big amount of time - the study is in its 6th year this year. But in general Apple's iPad wins by a significant amount over the next closest device - in quite a few studies, not just this one by JD Power. It's a bit of a surprise to find the iPad in second place.

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

It's difficult to say exactly why it is Samsung and Apple dominate the smartphone market - but this video takes a crack at it. What we're looking at is a spinning iPhone 8 concept - a device that's most likely going to come out next year, but commands search terms in Google this year because "iPhone 7s" is too many characters to be bothered typing. What we see here is style - design finesse - a sense of assuredness in the phone's overall excellence. That's what Apple and Samsung have, or appear to have, that most other phone companies lack.

Microsoft Sprinkles camera app is fun and not at all depressing

The developers at Microsoft have successfully created another distraction to our everyday massacre of a modern life with an app called Sprinkles.

Apple refunding Workflow purchases, questions arise

Apple refunding Workflow purchases, questions arise

Bigger, and richer, companies buying out smaller ones is nothing new. Tech companies buying out popular startups is also nothing new. What's not always consistent is how such companies treat their new acquisitions and the crowd of users they inherit. Almost out of character, when Apple acquired iOS automation platform Workflow it made the formerly paid app free of charge. And now it is reportedly refunding those who have previously purchased the app. While a sign of good faith, it also raises questions on whether there is something afoot in Cupertino as well.

iOS 10.3.1 released quickly to address iPhone 5, 5c issues

iOS 10.3.1 released quickly to address iPhone 5, 5c issues

It has just been a week since Apple rolled out iOS 10.3 for iOS devices, so it was definitely unexpected that Apple would follow it up immediately with a 10.3.1 release. Especially without a beta testing period, this mysterious update naturally raised a few questions. Although Apple would later release a note on what the update fixes, a security issue related to Wi-Fi, it might have left out the equally important part about fixing the update would have broken the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c.
