AT&T on Tuesday announced it has launched mobile 5G service in another seven markets, bringing the total to 19 cities.

I spend an ungodly amount of time searching for products to buy online — I am not complaining about that, it’s a rare thing to get paid for being an obsessive shopper — and of the things I spend my off-hours hunting for, none have burned my patience and time like the hunt for Bluetooth headphones.

Google’s Home Hub smart display spotlights another Microsoft failure

Google’s Home Hub joins Amazon’s Echo Show in an ambient-computing, smart-display space in which Microsoft is conspicuously absent.
