The Amazon Echo Input is the logical successor to the Chromecast Audio

Amazon swoops in to fill the void left by Google.

The Chromecast is arguably one of Google’s best products to date. The dongle made it incredibly easy for those looking to connect their older TVs to the internet, and the low price tag ensured it was accessible to everyone. The Chromecast Audio did the same for stereo systems, bringing multi-room audio and internet connectivity without the need to overhaul existing gear.

But what sold the Chromecast Audio  [Read More…]

Byte is the name of Vine’s successor and is launching in Spring 2019

Hi welcome to Chili’s.

As hard as it is to believe, it’s been almost two years since Twitter officially shut down Vine in January 2017. Vine’s founder Don Hofmann shared a logo for “V2” last December suggesting that a sequel to Vine was in the works, and now almost a year later, we know what it’ll be called and when we’ll be able to play around with it.

Oukitel reveals the successor to the K7 – the Oukitel K8 (Promoted)

With Oukitel’s K7 starting delivery this week, you’d think the Chinese OEM would be content with a job well done.

While Oukitel is generally known for naming its phones after the size of their batteries, it appears it’s rather fond of the KX designation. As such, we’ll likely see subsequent iterations of the phone follow a  [Read More…]

The LG G6 will get a successor, but it won’t be called the G7

A fresh start for the new year.

LG’s G6 and V30 last year were really solid phones, but despite this, they failed to make any sort of dent in the market. Likely as an attempt to change this in 2018, a spokesperson for LG has confirmed that the company will be getting rid of its G-series branding that’s been around since 2012 with the Optimus G in favor of something fresh and new.

This change will be  [Read More…]

Google reportedly cancels ‘muskie’ Pixel XL successor for something bigger

Android Police reports that Google has cancelled the handset known as “muskie” internally, and is instead deciding on going with a different phone — one that’s even bigger than the Pixel XL. This new report lines  [Read More…]

Is the Galaxy Tab S3 a suitable successor to an aging Pixel C?

The Android tablet market is a rather barren landscape, but all you need is one …

I was late to the party, but eventually became a big fan of Google’s Pixel C tablet a handful of months after it was released. For all of its flaws in being heavy and inherently lacking app support, I loved it as an extra-portable backup computer with a really good keyboard and powerful internals. But the Pixel C is coming up  [Read More…]

Google Contributor is well and truly dead; successor yet to be revealed

Contributor accounts have been shut down, and refunds have been issued. It’s done.

To quote our previous story about Google Contributor, “this whole thing sounds really weird.” After announcing back in December that its pay-to-remove-ads product would be replaced with something new come January, Google swiftly and abruptly shut down the service in a less-than-graceful manor. Now, it’s completely dead.

It started with the Google Contributor website simply being killed at the start of  [Read More…]
