It’s not perfect yet, but it’s looking like Google finally got their UI right for wearables.

AC Score 4.5

Wear OS, Google’s smartwatch platform has not had an easy life. It’s been blasted and bemoaned for a clunky UI, and its watches — powered by long-outdated chipsets — have fallen further and further and further behind the Apple Watch, in performance, in style, and most  [Read More…]

LG G7 ThinQ Review – Is LG finally back?

LG has been stuck in a rut for the last few years, similar to other OEM’s not named Samsung. The company has been trying out different tactics, starting with the LG G6 from last year.

In a move that shocked just about everyone, LG released its 2017 flagship, the G6, with 2016 specs, namely the Snapdragon 821 chipset. Sure, this was fine for awhile, but then as we saw the Snapdragon 835 released, the G6 fell to the wayside.

Older Amazon Fire TV devices finally get a 2013-era Android safeguard

An extra checkpoint will keep unwanted devices from connecting to a Fire TV that had ADB access enabled.

Not too long ago we read about malware that supposedly was taking over older Amazon Fire TV devices. That wasn’t exactly the case, but headlines are gonna headline. The thing was if you enabled the installation of “unknown sources” — which allows applications to be loaded from outside of whatever app store is tied to the device, and is  [Read More…]

Sonos speakers may finally get Google Assistant this holiday season

There’s still no specific date, but this is better than nothing — right?

As much as we love Sonos speakers, there’s one big feature that’s been noticeably absent for quite some time — the Google Assistant. The company’s first Alexa-powered speaker (the Sonos One) has proven to be a truly excellent gadget, and while Alexa works great, Assistant users have been left out in the cold for nearly a year.

Sonos has continued to promise that it’s  [Read More…]

Amazon Prime Video finally will have Dolby Atmos content on Aug. 31

Whether you’re actually ready for it is another matter.

You soon will be able to watch Amazon Prime Video in 4K resolution and listen to it with Dolby Atmos. That may sound strange, given that the Amazon Fire TV 4K released in 2017 was Atmos-ready from the start. So, too, is the newer Fire TV Cube. But here’s the thing — Amazon didn’t actually have any content that supported Atmos.

That apparently will change starting with the new  [Read More…]
