TicWatch Pro Review: Two screens, one watch

A dual-screen smartwatch sounds like the most ridiculous thing ever … until you stop picturing the screens side by side, and instead stack them one atop the other.

Google Assistant is moving into more places in and outside the home.

When Google debuted the Assistant at I/O in 2016, it was this tiny little feature inside a little-used messaging app called Allo.
