Fortnite’s Season 9 Live Event is almost here, along with a big pink robot

Season 9 of Fortnite is nearly at its end, and as the past seasons of the game have taught us, that means it’s almost time for another live event to occur.

Google gives away almost 20,000 Home Minis

At last night’s Western Conference Finals game between the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trailblazers, Google made a ton of fans very happy.

We’ve speculated that Google may be shaking up navigation gestures in Android Q to make up for the bland and boring system it revealed with Android Pie.

This hidden gesture discovered by XDA member paphonb  [Read More…]

LG G8 review: Almost there, yet again

Another year, another phone that gets most of the way to the competition and stumbles in critical moments.

LG’s modus operandi since 2016 has been to steadily iterate on its flagship phone platforms. Its seemingly low level of commitment to pushing the envelope with its top-tier smartphones comports with its earnings: the company’s mobile division isn’t making money, and what chance it has of doing so lies in releasing low- and mid-tier devices through deep carrier partnerships rather  [Read More…]
