LG G6 is now available in the US: free Google Home included

iPhone 8’s humongous release tipped to force Samsung Display hand

iPhone 8’s humongous release tipped to force Samsung Display hand

OLED displays are coming in hot for Apple's next smartphone and in no place is it more apparent than Samsung Display's factories. At least right here before manufacturing begins in earnest, a report from South Korea-based ET News says that Samsung Display's latest move is to convert an ASA LCD factory to OLED for one reason only. That is making room for the capacity needed to create the iPhone 8 - or iPhone Pro, or whatever you'd like to call it. Just don't call it a comeback - or an iPhone 7s, which will come with an LCD panel, more than likely.

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.

Android Nougat nearly doubles its reach in April

Android Nougat nearly doubles its reach in April

Android releases and their rollouts are almost as much a game of chance is they are software engineering. You almost never know when or even if your old smartphone will get the latest. Sometimes, even newer devices don't exactly come with the latest Android version. So when that latest Android version, 7.0 and 7.1 Nougat, jumps to almost double its market share, there is definitely reason for Android fans to be happy.

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.

Niantic’s Pokemon GO Easter surprise: Virtual Trespassing Lawsuits!

Niantic’s Pokemon GO Easter surprise: Virtual Trespassing Lawsuits!

This week it's become clear that Niantic isn't easily going to duck a number of lawsuits filed against them in courts in both the United States and abroad. In The Hague (in the Netherlands), authorities were successful in pressuring Niantic to remove virtual monsters from certain areas of their beloved city. Just before a court date set for October of 2016, Dutch authorities cancelled Niantic's appointment in favor of a (then pending) simpler solution. Whether or not this same sort of solution is being sought here in the United States - we'll see very soon.

Apple Music Android app now looks more like the iOS app

Apple Music Android app now looks more like the iOS app

Apple, to date, has had only two apps on Android (excluding a Beats-specific app), and both seem to be rather half-hearted attempts to wean users over to iOS. One is even called "Move to iOS". Apple Music, which gives Android users access to the company's music streaming service, hasn't fared any better. It hasn't seen some major action until today. With version 2.0, Apple Music on Android finally gets updated to the look and feel of iOS 10, which was released half a year ago.
