Verizon reveals Yahoo data breach affected all 3 billion accounts

Yahoo suffered a data breach in 2013, which it disclosed in 2014 as having affected about 1 billion user accounts.

Verizon Wear24 LTE smartwatch has been discontinued

This past summer, Verizon launched its own Android Wear smartwatch called the Wear24. Now, less than a handful of months later, Verizon has discontinued the wearable.

Verizon has just lost its exclusivity with Motorola’s Droid series and with Sprint’s Essential exclusive as well as AT&T’s BlackBerry KEYone, the carrier might be in need of a new partner. It seems that the new partner is ASUS. After the now practically useless, thanks to Google’s own ARCore, ZenFone AR, Verizon and ASUS have apparently collaborated on a never before seen ZenFone V. And while it might not be the ZenFone 5, it could very well be the ZenFone 3.5.

Motorola Gamepad Moto Mod Review: Great for tiny hands

When I place the controller in the hands of a 6-year-old colleague of mine, she's able to use the controller without issue. The Gamepad Moto Mod, made for Motorola Moto Z2 Force (and similar Motorola phones), by Lenovo, works perfect in all other categories. It's just that pesky size situation that's bummed me out thoroughly.

Verizon, ATT, T-Mobile, Sprint team up (for mobile security)

Here's something you probably weren't expecting: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have announced that they're all joining forces. No, they aren't coming together to summon some kind of 4G LTE demon that will end the world as we know it, but rather to work on a new mobile authentication solution. The new group they've formed is called the Mobile Authentication Taskforce, and while that name may be a bit silly, the group serves an important purpose.

Verizon Pixel, Pixel XL Oreo updates include surprise features

The advantage of owning a Google Pixel or Nexus device is that, at least within the device’s supported lifespan, you’re guaranteed to get Android updates and new versions first before anyone else does.

The good news is that Verizon has finally started pushing out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Pixel and Pixel XL phones under its care. The strange news is that it comes with two features never before heard in Oreo land.
