Wear OS badly needs to catch up with the Apple Watch’s health features

Wear OS tracks fitness nicely, but that doesn’t save lives.

Call smartwatches “dead” all you want (and I’ll grant that they’re not the most exciting topic these days), but I see them on more wrists than ever before — and the vast majority of them are Apple Watches. That’s not just because of how many people carry an iPhone, or some dumb generalization about Apple fans, it’s because the Apple Watch is genuinely useful in ways that  [Read More…]

Why your business needs to switch to HelloSign for eSignatures

For companies, managing paperwork well is one of the most essential parts of a strong foundation. Transferring a workflow from paper to digital is not only responsible, it can be a revenue game changer. In fact, collecting and completing paperwork digitally helps businesses prevent user drop-off — and moving to eSignature increases revenue on average by 8% in its first year.

HelloSign is a platform that helps businesses collect legally binding signatures on documents. The platform also reduces administrative  [Read More…]

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…]

Nine features and settings every Google Home user needs to know

First introduced in May 2016, the Google Home has fast become one of the leading connected smart speakers. It’s perhaps one of the most flexible devices of its kind and only gets better with updates and new features.

We’re in an era where the Google Home faces strong competition from the likes of Sonos, Amazon Echo, and the Apple HomePod. Each has its own advantages and drawbacks, and the space will get more crowded when Samsung delivers its first Bixby-powered  [Read More…]

Google needs to regulate how its computers talk to people, or the government will

Much of what Google does with AI scares people, and they will want something done.

With an AI here and AI there, here an AI there an AI everywhere an AI, Old McGoogle has a new farm. One it has been working on for a long time and still isn’t finished with. Making computers in secret server rooms teach themselves how to act like people. Notice I said act and not think; AI and Machine Learning aren’t  [Read More…]

The LG G7 launch needs to be perfect, but LG has a dismal track record

LG doesn’t need an absolute hit, but it does need to dramatically limit its mistakes.

2017 was a big year of improvement for LG, even though it didn’t translate into massively improved sales. After the dreadful G5 and extremely niche V20 in 2016, it rebounded to make the very good and severely under-appreciated G6 and V30. They were both good phones that were not only huge improvements over their predecessors but also just solid offerings compared to  [Read More…]

Here’s what Motorola needs to do to win the budget segment with the Moto G6 series

Motorola needs to up the ante with the Moto G6 series.

Motorola dominates the budget category in Western markets with the Moto G series, but the company hasn’t had an easy time of late. Lack of timely updates made the Moto G series lose its luster, and Motorola is witnessing increased competition in the budget category.

HMD has announced that it will launch the Nokia 6 2018 in the U.S. next month, and in India — Motorola’s  [Read More…]
