Anker’s Zolo sub-brand has announced an interestingly designed speaker with Google Assistant.

Anker is no stranger to audio products since it produces some of the best inexpensive earbuds out there. Its Zolo sub-brand is no stranger to experimental products either, with the company releasing its Liberty truly wireless earbuds late last year. That heritage continues with Zolo’s latest announcement: the Model Zero speaker.

Google Camera HDR+ Port APK updated with Zero Shutter Lag

The Google Camera app found on the Pixel devices was ported with working HDR+ mode earlier this month to pretty much any device that ran on a Snapdragon 820/821 or 835 chip to install the APK.

The 8bitdo Zero is an excellent Bluetooth controller that fits on a keychain

TPO: Prepaid plans with zero compromise

Saving money on your mobile bill doesn’t mean losing out on features or service.

TPO (The People’s Operator) is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that leases coverage from Sprint. MVNOs piggyback on the bigger networks in order to bring you great service at a lower price.

Does going with an alternative carrier mean you’ll be getting second class service compared to customers of the Big Four (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon)?

Switch to TPO and save on your  [Read More…]

Raspberry Pi 3 or Raspberry Pi Zero: Which should you get for your Kodi box?

Do you go for a larger or smaller piece of Pi?

Terrible puns aside it’s a legitimate question. We’ve established before that the Raspberry Pi Zero makes a fine Kodi box, albeit sacrificing ultimate power for size and a much lower price.

The question is, though, if you’re wanting to construct your own Kodi box, which would you be better off buying?

Neither of these two are exactly computing powerhouses, but there is still  [Read More…]

The Raspberry Pi Zero makes a great, super cheap Kodi box

The Raspberry Pi 3 isn’t the only cheap Kodi box you can make yourself.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has another insanely affordable computer that you can make things with. The Pi Zero costs a ridiculously low $ 5 and is every bit as accessible, if a little more limited, than its bigger brother.

Just as we did with the Raspberry Pi 3, we made a little Kodi box out of the Pi Zero and frankly, it’s amazing  [Read More…]
