The original Amazon Echo is still a great product. By making it mobile, though, it becomes even better.

Let’s say you’re one of those “normal” people who has only a single Amazon Echo. And the original one at that. It’s a good-enough speaker for music, but it’s shackled to the wall, because the thing still needs a power source.

Mobile printing to a Mopria-ready printer is as easy as it gets (Review & Giveaway)

Let’s be honest for a moment. Printing from a smartphone hasn’t always been easy. Up until the more recent versions of Android it was, for all practical purposes, nearly impossible. But, things have changed over the years and we’re getting to a place where cloud-based and connected printers make things much simpler. In an increasing […]

LG’s overall profit margins take a hit as mobile unit posts a $ 117 million loss.

Adobe Lightroom mobile goes ‘Android native’ with slightly refreshed interface

Just because an update looks small doesn’t mean it isn’t important.

The main change to the experience is better labeling of buttons and simpler sliders that make sense on a (relatively) small screen that’s used exclusively with touch.

Save net neutrality and keep our mobile future awesome

Do your part to keep the internet open and weird.

I’ll freely tell someone to go with T-Mobile as a carrier, for example, because it offers the best compromise between speed, value, and coverage. Rarely, though, does it occur to me to judge a provider based on its stance towards net neutrality, a topic that has a  [Read More…]
