For some people, two-factor authentication just isn’t enough.

Google takes account security very seriously. You may be giving up more of your privacy than you like by using Google services and hardware, but that’s not the same thing as account security — and Google takes some pretty big steps to keep unauthorized users out of your account. The company also has some tools and policies designed to keep you from letting an unauthorized user in, like Chrome blocking  [Read More…]

Electronauts is the VR music maker you didn’t know you wanted

The learning curve is steep, but so are the drops.

While there are a few different music games out there for the PlayStation VR, most of them are some kind of standard drumming machine trying to add an interesting VR twist.

Finally, a wearable that does exactly what I want it to do.

I hate what we’re doing with smartwatches right now. I don’t want to talk at my wrist; I couldn’t care less about a cellular connection; and I’m not interested in a smaller version of my phone giving me turn-by-turn directions in a place that still requires me to look away from the road. If I turn off the features I don’t care  [Read More…]
