How to stream music from your phone in an older car

Upgrading your car stereo capabilities on the cheap.

Story time: I’ve got an older car, a 2001 VW Jetta, that still runs great but lacks some of the modern amenities that I would prefer to have in my car. Most notably, my car stereo still prominently features a cassette deck along with FM/AM radio.

Yeah, I’m pretty sure this setup was out of date back in 2001.

I’m well past using physical media for my music, so  [Read More…]

From The Editor’s Desk: Fake news

All the news that’s fit to fake.

You’d have to insert your head fairly deep in the sand these days to avoid the term “fake news.” It’s seemingly everywhere, the notion that some media outlets either distort or invent the truth for their own gain. Recently, this has pertained mainly to politics, but the notion of artifice in our daily news consumption is not a new one — especially if you’re a regular visitor to tech blogs.  [Read More…]

From the Editor’s Desk: Google partnerships prove valuable

A combined strategy of in-house hardware and strong partnerships can work — under the right circumstances.

Google has been riding a wave of consumer confidence the past couple of months following its late-fall hardware launch of the Pixels, Google Home and Chromecast Ultra. But this week, we saw the other side of its strategy: launching products with its long-standing hardware partners running on Google’s platforms. Wednesday saw the release of Android Wear 2.0 using LG’s hardware, and  [Read More…]

Samsung Chromebook Pro review: Finally a great option from Samsung

Samsung made this Chromebook, but there’s a ton of Google influence throughout.

If you haven’t noticed by now, Chromebooks are definitely A Thing™. Unfortunately, until about the last year they have typically been low-end machines that didn’t offer much to get excited about in terms of component quality or features. Models like the Dell Chromebook 13, Acer Chromebook R13 and ASUS C302 are changing that, and the latest in the line of “dang that’s a nice looking  [Read More…]

MrMobile’s best Android tablet (is from 2015)

It’s been 15 months since Google’s Pixel C launched, and it hasn’t diminished in quality (or price). It still has some annoying bugs, and there’s still software that just won’t work in landscape mode, but after over a year since release, I still find myself gravitating toward it whenever I’m able to leave my bigger machines behind.

I’m Michael Fisher, alias MrMobile, and it’d be ridiculous for me to suggest you buy the Pixel C … at full price.  [Read More…]
