Google needs to learn from Amazon on how to build products for kids

We want the best for our kids, and right now that means we buy from Amazon.

It’s easy to think of mobile and its associated gadgetry as a two-way race between Apple and Google. When it comes to all things flashy that tech writers and Twitter pundits like to make words about, iOS and Android (their respective ecosystems actually) rule the roost. But that’s not quite accurate — companies like AT&Timewarner or NBComcast Universal or Verizonhoo! (sorry)  [Read More…]

How to send texts from your desktop using Android Messages

06Last month, Google started rolling out “Messages for Web” support for all Android users.

Jump Force: Hands-on impressions from E3 2018

After dazzling with its trailer at E3 2018, this demo was sadly lacking.

Fans of Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, One Piece, and more delighted in the announcement from Bandai Namco at E3 2018 that a variety of characters from popular manga and anime would congregate in Jump Force for one massive fighting game. The trailer certainly looked impressive, with soaring scenes of our world littered with refuse from theirs, and six iconic characters duking it out amid  [Read More…]

Skull & Bones for PlayStation 4: Hands-on impressions from E3 2018

This game will be familiar to anyone who has enjoyed boat combat before, and sadly doesn’t offer much else.

Ubisoft’s E3 presentation didn’t detail much we didn’t already know about their new IP, Skull & Bones. We saw more pirates and some fun catch phrases, but nothing to suggest the game was more than pirates in ships fighting one another. And even after playing the upcoming PlayStation 4 game myself for half an hour, I’m convinced that’s  [Read More…]
