Hate the Galaxy S8’s unlocking options? Buy a Fitbit

The Galaxy S8’s fingerprint sensor placement has some people in a tizzy. Here’s how to avoid using it and still keep your device safe.

The Galaxy S8 is a great phone with a lot of ways to unlock the screen. That stems from the fact that Samsung relocated the fingerprint sensor from the front below the screen, which is easy to reach, to the back next to the camera, which is considerably harder. Then it added two  [Read More…]

A good, cheap smartphone. That’s been the MO of the Moto G series since the very beginning — a phone that doesn’t cost the earth, but also doesn’t come with a bunch of nasty compromises. This year, the line is led by the Moto G5 Plus — and it might just be the best inexpensive Android phone you can buy.

Logitech Harmony paired with Android is the ultimate universal remote

If you spend a lot of time in the living room with a lot of entertainment devices, the Logitech Harmony system is a worthy investment.

I once owned a universal remote that I’m pretty sure was the size of a shoebox. That’s how I remember it, anyway — a definite two-hander with a large screen (for the time) and very few physical buttons. Something like this.
