Nest, the Alphabet company that scooped up to take over its smart home ambitions, has a problem. Its Nest Cam line, which includes the (admittedly excellent) Outdoor model, has a dangerous bug that allows a would-be thief or hacker (or hacker thief) to send a signal over Bluetooth to force the camera into a reboot, disabling the unit for up [Read More…]
You will once again be able to share your location without using Google+.
A long time ago, we used to be able to share location data with friends through this app called Google Latitude.

I don’t know about you, but I grew up playing Super Mario Bros. I played as much as I could before my hands got tired, and then some. So when Nintendo announced Super Mario Run, I got super excited, and then a bit sad. The reason for the sadness was due to the Apple exclusivity, […]
