How to pause and clear your YouTube history

We all have videos we’d rather forget.

YouTube hosts a lot of fascinating, entertaining, and educational content. It also hosts a lot of trash, and we’d rather not have that trash in our search histories, our watch histories, or in the YouTube recommendations that are generated from those histories. Do you want Google to autocomplete to “red hot baby mommas” every time you start looking for a Red Hot Chili Peppers video? Did you forget to switch  [Read More…]

YouTube TV vs. Sling TV: Which one is worth the monthly subscription fee?

Should you pick Google’s live TV service that’s limited by area, or does Sling TV’s tiered pricing seem more up your alley?

Can’t join your friends for the feature presentation? This Daydream- and Gear VR-compatible app lets you hop into a virtual room and view videos in tandem in real time.
