If you hated the Pixel 2 XL, nothing about the 3 XL will change your mind

This is a new Pixel, not an entirely new kind of device.

Leaks of upcoming smartphones are fun for the most part, because they give us a glimpse at what’s to come in a new device and lets us have informed speculation about the rest. I don’t quite feel the same about this latest Google Pixel 3 XL leak, which is the whole picture. The whole phone, retail box and all, has leaked spectacularly. It takes away  [Read More…]

How to change the screen size in PlayStation VR Cinematic Mode

Become completely immersed

PlayStation VR’s Cinematic Mode is basically everything you would see in a ‘normal’ PlayStation 4 experience but seen through your headset.

It’s like looking at a big cinema screen, but you can change how big the screen is for a  [Read More…]

While recent announcements at Google I/O suggest that Assistant will soon be a lot more powerful with new “Continued Conversations,” a new addition makes it an even better experience right now.

That’s because Google has added six additional voices to Assistant, nearly tripling the total after it added a male  [Read More…]
