Samsung’s Galaxy Watch could be the Android smartwatch you were waiting for

Turn the dial to 11.

Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch bears a striking resemblance to the Gear Sport from last year, but it’s refined in a number of ways that, along with the rebranding to bring it closer to the company’s line of Galaxy phones, could help it stand apart.

Available in two watch face sizes, 46mm and 42mm, the Galaxy Watch features an OLED display covered in Corning’s new Gorilla Glass DX+ glass built specifically for wearables.  [Read More…]

The Facebook-owned company introduced the resharing feature within its app last month, and now the tool is getting an upgrade.

Google’s new YouTube Music plans are here — and we’re gonna pay more for what we like right now

Google’s been amassing a  [Read More…]

Instagram will once again show you posts in the order they were shared

Thank you, thank you, a million times, thank you.

It’s no secret that Instagram is the biggest social network for sharing pictures and videos of whatever’s going on in your life, but for the last couple years, it’s been a hot mess for a lot of users.

Facebook never earned your trust and now we’re all paying the price

There was no Facebook data breach. You gave them the data, and they gave it away — all according to plan.

News reports have been swirling about Facebook (a company you know), Cambridge Analytica (a company you might not have heard of), and the 2016 United States presidential election. It’s an important story, but I’ve observed a critical misunderstanding or miscasting of the discussion in many media outlets, even those that are supposed to be tech-savvy. You’ve maybe seen  [Read More…]
