Modern Dad’s Black Friday wish list

I’ve been playing with some new toys — and these definitely are things I’d look to pick up on sale this holiday season.

I don’t often have buyer’s remorse. If I spend money on something, there’s usually a pretty good reason why. But I do feel a pang of guilt when I buy something knowing full well that it’s going to be on sale sometime soon.

Such is the case with some of my latest procurements, however. The bad  [Read More…]

Project Fi wish list: 3 things that would make me switch

With a few small changes, Project Fi could become unstoppable.

When Google launched Project Fi in April 2015, I signed up for the service as fast as I possibly could. I ordered the starter kit for my Nexus 6 and loved the added benefits, but ultimately went back to my previous service provider after the first month.

Project Fi gets a lot of things right. Its mobile app is wonderfully designed and easy to use, the billing  [Read More…]

Pixel Watch wish list: What we want to see from Google’s first smartwatch

A sleek design, new processor, GPS, oh my!

This October, we’re anticipating that Google will follow its footsteps of the past two years with an event to announce its latest and greatest hardware products. We’ve seen Pixel phones, Home speakers, wireless earbuds and more, and this time around, we’re expecting the company to finally dive into the world of smartwatches.

A rumor popped up in early May suggesting that Google will announce a Pixel Watch alongside the  [Read More…]

I wish there was a Chrome phone

The next big thing needs to have learned from the mistakes of the past.

Now that Chrome is a full-on tablet operating system, there is only one more frontier — the smartphone.

It’s not that anything was changed in Chrome to run it on a tablet. Once Android apps started to run natively in Chrome I knew it was coming. It just took actual companies who make actual products a bit more time to catch up. Maybe  [Read More…]

Udacity: Tools to help you be the change you wish to see in Android

Are you an armchair technology critic, leaving passive criticism in the comments section of new apps and devices? It’s easy to imagine as the consumer that every product should be flawless. And to be upset when that perfect image is not met. It’s much harder to educate ourselves and invest in solutions, instead of echoing negativity. […]

Pixel 3 wish list: What we want to see from Google’s 2018 flagship

The Pixel 2 is already the best Android phone you can buy, but it can always be better. Here are the things I would like to see in the Pixel 3.

I’ve had my Pixel 2 XL since a week after release, and while a small number of early units had some issues, most owners have reported being happy with their device. I didn’t encounter any of the hardware issues that other early owners experienced, and I’ve been enjoying  [Read More…]

Google’s Instant Apps rolling out to some and Wish is first out of the gate

Are we ready for apps that install from a search result? We need to be because they’re here.

Some folks are starting to see Google’s Instant Apps feature roll out to their phones and it seems like Wish is the first company to use them.

Back at Google I/O 2017 Google told us about Instant Apps. The idea is that you would find an app in your Google search results and be able to tap a button  [Read More…]

Google Home Wish List 2017

Here’s how I’d like to see Google Home improve.

Google Home is quickly growing more capable as a connected home accessory. New features are being added at a steady pace, and now that third-party developers are able to extend their services onto the platform we’re going to see an exciting ramp-up in capability moving into the next year. I’m excited to see what third-party teams bring to Google Home, but I’d also like to see Google add  [Read More…]

Amazon Echo Wish List 2017

Alexa, it’s time for some upgrades.

News that Amazon sold nine times more Echo speakers this Christmas is unsurprising. Echo Dot is absurdly cheap, and Amazon’s Alexa service is by far the most capable when you look at total available commands. At the same time, there’s a lot of room for Alexa to grow and improve in the coming year. Things to be added, changed, and in general improved in order to make this the best possible  [Read More…]

15 Tech gadgets you’ll wish you owned during a power outage or natural disaster

Like it or not, we are growing more dependent on our mobile devices with everyday that passes. At 35 years old, I am old enough to remember how to read a map since digital maps didn’t exist when I was a teen. I’m also old enough to remember going to scouts and learning how to
