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.

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

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…]

After having spent a few months living with the Blu S1 we return with a more long-term look at the phone. As Blu’s first model to offer CDMA support, it’s a sub-$ 200 phone worth consideration.

Android Wear needs way more than just a Wear OS rebrand

The new look is nice, but Android Wear’s core problems lie far deeper.

Google first launched Android Wear in 2014, and since then, the platform hasn’t changed all that much. Android Wear 2.0 introduced a slightly updated UI and a few new features in 2017, and on March 15, 2018, Google announced that it was re-branding Android Wear as “Wear OS by Google.”

The purpose of the new name and logo is to shine some light on  [Read More…]
