Control’s Foundation DLC shows Remedy’s still in top form

Should you trust the Board? It’s all about perspective.

Control was easily my Game of the Year in 2019, so there was no doubt in my mind that I would be getting its expansions, a decision unusual for me because I almost never buy DLC. The Foundation, the game’s first story-based DLC, continues Control’s penchant for weird horror with its own signature brand of humor while we delve deeper into the Oldest House. It doesn’t break the  [Read More…]

The Moto G7 is still one of the best mid-range Android phones in 2020

Best answer: Yes, you should still buy the Moto G7 in 2020. While Motorola has announced two new Moto G models for this year (the G Stylus and G Power), the G7 continues to offer a great user experience and still holds up as one of the better mid-range phones you can buy right now.

Is Google Wifi still a smart upgrade for your network?

Best answer: Google Wifi is still capable of delivering solid Wi-Fi speeds in a mesh thanks to consistent software updates and compatibility with newer hardware. Whether you are expanding an existing Google or Nest Wifi mesh or building one from scratch, Google Wifi is still a great choice, although if you have the cash we recommend going with Nest for faster speeds.

Where to buy hand sanitizer: These retailers still have stock available

Hand sanitizer is something you normally can walk into any store and buy, whether you needed a large bottle for your office or a small one for your travel bag. Right now, supply is at an all-time low, and finding it can be quite difficult. Fears and concerns around the Coronavirus continue to grow and escalate around the world, and supplies of essential items continue to dwindle as a result.

YouTube TV reaches agreement with Sinclair, but will still lose some Fox RSNs and YES Network

We don’t quite know which markets will be affected, though.

In the latest installment of “Twitter is really no way to announce things,” YouTube TV apparently has reached some kind of agreement with Sinclair Broadcast Group. But that agreement still involves YouTube TV — at least in some markets — losing access to Fox Regional Sports Networks, as well as the YES Network.

Only, whomever is doing the Twitter replies doesn’t actually know which channels and the markets that  [Read More…]

You can call it Pixel Smush or 3D Touch, it’s still the same failed idea

It’s an interesting concept with limited potential that’s already been done — and deleted.

One of the new features that just arrived on the Pixel 4 is the “long-press accelerator”, or Pixel Smush. It’s a concept Google has been kicking around a long time — Android Froyo could measure the force of a touch a decade ago — but with new machine learning capabilities and some software creativity, it’s now an actual thing.

I’m going back to Spotify because YouTube Music still kind of sucks

I tried to switch, but I can’t fully commit just yet.

A new year is a sign of new beginnings and starting fresh. For 2020, I decided to finally give YouTube Music a fighting chance after being a Spotify customer for years. You might remember me talking about this in an editorial back in January, in which I stated that I wouldn’t be going back to Spotify after using YouTube Music for a month.

Well, a little  [Read More…]

Huawei’s app store is still mostly irrelevant to anyone in the west

Boasting about being so far behind is not a good look even if it’s the only good thing to say.

When I was but a youngster, my father was a mechanic for one of the local stock car drivers. At the risk of showing my age, I can remember that somehow local promoters convinced Richard Petty to race at the little local track. In the weeks before that day, I can remember those local drivers saying how  [Read More…]
