Google Phone app could implement call recording soon

Google Phone app could implement call recording soon

Recording phone calls is a very touchy subject. On the one hand, it definitely has practical uses, especially when recording phone interviews or meetings. On the other hand, it also raises a few privacy concerns. The latter may be one reason why Google hasn't provided an official feature on Android to record calls but, based on some Google Phone app analysis, it might slowly be working towards finally fixing that long-standing problem.

Verizon OneSearch is powered by Bing, promises to be private and serve ads

Verizon OneSearch is powered by Bing, promises to be private and serve ads

Gone are the days when almost anyone that can set up a web server would offer a search engine of their own. These days, any custom engine is often powered by either Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, or Yandex and Baidu in certain countries. That is exactly what is happening with Verizon's unexpected OneSerch engine, which actually serves up results from Microsoft Bing. That, however, isn't what makes it interesting. Rather it is its promise to protect users' privacy that will probably raise not a few eyebrows.

Google wants third-party cookies out of Chrome in two years

Google wants third-party cookies out of Chrome in two years

Google seems to be putting its products on a sugar diet. First, it gets rid of Android's dessert names, now it wants Chrome to go cookie-free. Granted, web cookies have gone beyond being useful to the point of being a liability. And Google should know, considering how close it is not just to the Web but to the whole advertising industry that corrupted those cookies. Now it's making rather bold moves that will shake up that very industry by removing support for cookies from one of the world's most used browsers.

Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen Logitech attempt to build out its range of ergonomic PC accessories, most notably with the MX Vertical mouse. The MX Vertical has a design that definitely takes some getting used to, but today we’re seeing the company launch something a little more familiar: an ergonomic keyboard.

nubia Red Magic, Xiaomi Black Shark jump on the high refresh rate train

If you're tired of all the talk about foldable displays or even notches, don't worry, there seems to be a new trend on the way. Although not completely new, screens that boast of refresh rates higher than the normal 60 Hz have, until recently, been the arena of gaming smartphones. With OnePlus' announcement of its own, Samsung-made 120 Hz Fluid Display, it seems that its competitors like ZTE's nubia and Xiaomi's Black Shark will be joining the fray soon as well.

Sony Wireless Shooting Grip is made for its mirrorless cameras

Sony Wireless Shooting Grip is made for its mirrorless cameras

Smartphone cameras may be ubiquitous and have significantly improved over the years but they're still a long way from overthrowing professional equipment, even the more handy ones. Mirrorless cameras are often the go-to products for on-the-go photography gear but, despite their portability, can still sometimes be a pain to hold, especially over long periods. That's why Sony has just announced the GP-VPT2BT Shooting Grip which it touts as the best hassle-free grip in its arsenal, mostly because it doesn't use any cables to work.

Chrome OS 80 adds gesture navigation similar to Android 10

It seems that Google is trying to further bridge the gap between Android and Chrome OS, making the latter the OS to rule them all without actually merging them. This is especially the case with the upcoming Chrome OS 80 version which is getting some key features that improve the web-based platform's Android support. The latest addition brings something that is both familiar but also divisive among Android users: full gesture navigation.
