Do you wish companies would stop re-designing their phones every year?

Having a chat with the AC forums.

The Android smartphone market is one that can be difficult to keep up with. Year after year, companies push out new handsets with subtle or major tweaks compared to its predecessor. Whether it be slimmer bezels, a slightly thinner body, or a new style for a camera bump, many of these changes are often in the design department.

A new design is one of those things we’ve come to expect  [Read More…]

Every messaging app should steal Slack’s sweet new UI

This is an ingenious way to address issues with gestures overlapping.

Apps that rely on slide-in drawers can be really tough to use, and when that’s a core part of the interface it can slow you down dramatically.

But this week, I received a much-needed ray of hope for  [Read More…]

The RCS rollout continues across the globe.

RCS is an upgrade to the standard SMS messaging feature set that exists on all smartphones. It adds typing indicators, read receipts, emoji reactions, support for higher quality file sharing, and so on. In essence, it turns basic SMS into instant messaging and makes the Messages app an iMessage and WhatsApp competitor. While it is typically carrier dependent, Google has opted to take on that burden for now while carriers  [Read More…]

Wear OS now nags you to wash your hands every three hours

You can choose to disable the alerts if you find the “feature” to be annoying.

What you need to know The Clock app on Wear OS has started sending periodic alerts to users to remind them to wash their hands. When you open an alert, the app will start a timer for 40 seconds and remind you to always use soap. The reminders can be disabled by holding down on the notification.

Why every smartphone needs a good screen protector

Smartphones are expensive. Even a mid-range device can run you several hundred dollars, to say nothing of all the costs associated with ownership. It should go without saying that you want to protect your investment however you can.

Every tech business should have a .tech domain extension—here’s why

It’s hard to imagine, but the era of the dot com boom has been over for a good while. And yet, big companies continue to shell out huge sums for even the most obscure .com domains while the vast majority of startups settle for awkward variations on their brand for a website name.

And why? Conditioning, mostly. Businesses flock toward .com and .net extensions because they’ve always been there. But they’re far from the best option anymore, especially  [Read More…]

The Galaxy S20 will be expensive, but so will every other flagship 5G phone

Samsung will be the first, but this pricing trend will continue throughout 2020.

The latest Galaxy S20 leaks don’t paint an affordable picture: a €999 starting price for the Galaxy S20 (with 5G), up to €1349 for the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Typically those Euro prices translate roughly directly to the U.S. prices, so that would point to $ 999-$ 1349 stateside. That’s a tough pill to swallow when the Galaxy S10e started at $ 750 this time  [Read More…]
