Android apps to make your Pokemon Go experience even better

Pokemon Go is huge. Yes, in fall of 2018. In fact, the game is as popular now as it was upon its launch some two years back. It’s a money-making monster and people can’t get enough.

Why is Pokemon Go so popular now? There are plenty of reasons. For starters, there’s no fewer than 350 Pokemon available to catch. New characters are added all the time and the fourth generation appears to be on the horizon. Then there’s Community Day,  [Read More…]

Razer Phone 2 hands-on preview: Same game, better phone

The second-generation Razer Phone is just as good at gaming, and better at being a phone.

Although flawed in execution, the original Razer Phone wasn’t hopelessly bad. It was a good idea in need of further refinement. Razer had a silky 120Hz display, but daylight visibility was so poor that outdoor use was painful. It had a dual camera system, but with photo quality that’d be embarrassing on a phone half the price. Plus it was missing table-stakes  [Read More…]

Google Home is awesome; here’s how to make it even better!

First introduced in May 2016, the Google Home has fast become one of the leading connected smart speakers. It’s perhaps one of the most flexible devices of its kind and only gets better with updates and new features.

We’re in an era where the Google Home faces strong competition from the likes of Sonos, Amazon Echo, and the Apple HomePod. Each has its own advantages and drawbacks, and the space will get more crowded when Samsung delivers its first Bixby-powered  [Read More…]

Urbanear Lotsen Speaker Review: A better “smart” speaker clone?

Urbanears has been an audio company for a long time now. It focuses mainly on aesthetics rather than creating the highest audio quality for only prestigious “audiophiles”. The company’s newest project includes a 3-tier family of smarter, connected speakers. These include the Baggen at the high end, Stammen in the middle, and the Lotsen on the low end. I’ve received the Lotsen to review. This family of speakers seems to rival the similar families from Sonos (Play series) and Bose  [Read More…]

Everything Lenovo Smart Display does better than a tablet in the kitchen

Android Things is functional in ways a normal tablet can’t manage, and that’s okay.

With the launch of Lenovo’s Smart Display with Android Things onboard, we’ve seen one question, in particular, stand out above the others. Why buy this when you can buy an Android tablet? Wouldn’t it be better to have something battery powered you could take with you everywhere? In some ways, sure, a tablet offers portability and functionality beyond the Android Things platform.

Why adding a screen makes the Lenovo Smart Display so much better

Voice is great, but sometimes you just can’t beat visuals.

Ask anyone who’s used Google Home for any length of time and they’ll tell you this — it’s great. But it could be so much better with a screen. And that’s where the new Lenovo Smart Display comes in. Think Google Home, with a screen. (And an even better audio experience, actually.)

Video, of course, is a big thing. And when you think video, you think YouTube. And the  [Read More…]

5 ways the Lenovo Smart Display is better than the Amazon Echo Show

Despite being available for over a year, Amazon’s Echo Show doesn’t stand up against Lenovo’s Smart Display.

There’s a lot to like about the Lenovo Smart Display. It takes the smarts of Google Assistant and combines it brilliantly with a display and Google Cast functionality, which all comes together to make something genuinely enjoyable to use.

But it’s not the first product of its kind out there; in fact, Amazon has had its Echo Show on shelves  [Read More…]

VRidge has added better Oculus Go controller support for SteamVR games

A major VRidge update has added extra support for using Oculus Go controllers with SteamVR.

Thanks to some savvy developers, it’s possible to stream SteamVR games to mobile VR systems, like Oculus Go. I already wrote a guide on using Air Light VR (ALVR) to get this done, but a recent update to RiftCat’s VRidge software, an alternative method for streaming, has added better controller support. This is key when trying to make up lost ground between  [Read More…]
