Facebook Messenger update changes how I chat [APK download]

Starting this week, users of both Android and iPhone (or iPad) devices will see a change in Facebook Messenger. In the app they'll be able to converse with their friends and associates in a brand new way. While before, Emoji icons were allowed to be plugged in and seen, now Reactions are available too. Mentions are also about to become available to the masses - just in case I'm speaking about someone that I need to link to.

Apple patent turns iOS devices into laptops

Apple patent turns iOS devices into laptops

We can discover a lot of interesting stuff by looking at patent filings, and a new patent from Apple definitely falls within that category. At first blush, the drawings in the patent seem to show a device that looks just like a regular old laptop. The major difference, though, is that the laptop can't operate without some kind of host device attached - in this case, an iPhone that's slotted in where the laptop's trackpad would traditionally be.

Eevee evolution Pokemon GO update: a time to start over again

Eevee evolution Pokemon GO update: a time to start over again

Today's news update to Pokemon GO has to do with the way powers are handled for a variety of monsters, including Eevee. Espeon and Umbreon might not be the best evolutions available for this always-catch-friendly Pokemon. Instead, the other three - original evolutions - of Eevee might end up being a whole lot more useful to the everyday player. For those that need to complete the Pokedex, there's still a set of secret methods for nabbing the full set of 5.

iPhone SE update doubles up on storage with new models

The iPhone SE has proven to be surprisingly popular with the Apple faithful, and with its first birthday coming up, it's about time for it to get something of refresh.

Superscreen transforms your Android, iPhone into a tablet

Superscreen transforms your Android, iPhone into a tablet

Ever wished your smartphone had a much larger screen but don’t exactly want a larger phone, much less a tablet? While LG tried to address that desire in the LG G6, it could only go so far. A tablet would mean yet another device to carry and keep in sync. Not to mention yet another potentially expensive purchase. Wouldn’t it be grand if your smartphone could just magically have a larger display? Short of folding devices and actual magic, that is exactly the dream that the Superscreen Kickstarter is seeking to make come true. With your funding help, of course.

popSLATE 2 iPhone e-ink case is no more, no refunds possible

popSLATE 2 iPhone e-ink case is no more, no refunds possible

Crowdfunding is always risky business, not too different from investing in something that doesn’t exist yet. Some don’t deliver on time, others not at all. Some disappear like the wind, while others try to make a graceful exit, whether or not refunds are offered. popSLATE 2, a redux of an iPhone e-ink case, is somewhat all of the above. The company behind it has made one last update on Indiegogo, announcing its bankruptcy and dissolution and, to add insult to injury, the lack of funds to refund more than 12,000 backers who helped it raise $1.1 million last year.

Android’s Super Mario Run APK download incoming [and a warning]

Android’s Super Mario Run APK download incoming [and a warning]

Super Mario Run is just about to launch on Android for and by Nintendo - but until then, be cautious. Since Nintendo worked with Apple to release Super Mario Run for iPhone first, Android users have been screaming bloody murder for their chance to take a crack at it. To be especially clear - when this article is set to be published, Nintendo has NOT released Super Mario Run officially, and all APK files offered by 3rd-party sources are completely illegitimate.

Qualcomm is no longer making processors (they’re calling them Platforms)

Qualcomm is no longer making processors (they’re calling them Platforms)

This week the folks at Qualcomm have announced their decision to change the way they present their hardware. Instead of calling the technology they create a "Qualcomm Snapdragon processor", they'll be calling it a "Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile Platform." This should serve to better differentiate the full scope of what Qualcomm does - that's essentially deliver a platform, yes, from which a smartphone (or other smart devices) can process, connect, and deliver data to the end user.
