These feature the same things as the Spectacles 2 did. They basically record 10-second clips of video, which you can upload to your Snapchat account. You can also capture a photo with ’em. They’re great for recording events, adventures, vlogs, or just  [Read More…]

What are the Android Support Libraries and why are they important?

Android is a fragmented mess. There is no getting around this simple fact, and because of what Android is and how it’s distributed, it’s never going to change.

These don’t go on sale all that often.

Amazon is currently offering the popular wireless headphones from Apple for $ 144.99, which is about $ 15 off the normal going rate. We don’t see many discounts (outside of Costco’s recurring one) for these truly wireless headphones from Apple, so if you have been looking for a set, this is a deal you won’t want to miss out on.

AppleInsider shockingly doesn’t understand Pixels and Nexuses as products or how they affected Android manufacturers

The history of Nexus and Pixel partnerships is long, but it isn’t too complicated to understand.

But some companies fall a little under the radar and need an extra push getting the attention they deserve. RhinoShield’s products fall into that category.

For the Galaxy S9 series, the company has released two very  [Read More…]
