PUBG Mobile has officially been updated to version 0.4.0, and it’s a pretty sizable update with some new features and control options to improve your game. The biggest changes are a new Arcade Mode, a Training Ground, and a Dusk setting.
Last fall Amazon took a step toward trying to provide a more secure delivery solution for Amazon Prime members who were ordering physical goods from the company. Knowing what a ripe target Amazon boxes left on doorsteps and front porches make, Amazon launched Amazon Key which enabled delivery drivers to enter a home to leave a package. Amazon announced today that they are expanding the program to now offer in-car delivery for Prime members who have eligible vehicles and are in an area covered by the service.
Podcasts are a weird piece of Android, and I don’t necessarily mean that in a good way. Contrast it with Apple’s podcast integration and you get a pretty ugly picture, for example. On an iPhone, podcasts have their own standalone app called Podcasts, users have a full library and store to browse and store their favorites, and there are enough features to make the app a solid, if bland, implementation.
Machine learning is one of the biggest trends in current development and tech circles, and you’re going to want to stay in the loop with something this big. Right now we’re offering a comprehensive machine learning bundle that includes several ebooks and educational courses, and it won’t break the bank.
Google’s parent company, Alphabet, has announced its first-quarter earnings for 2018, which on first glance show impressive growth in both revenues and operating income of 26% ($26.1 billion) and 22% ($7 billion). This is incredible growth for such a big company that employs around 85,000 employees globally. But not all of Alphabets companies are in the black. Thanks to Nest being reabsorbed into Google in Q4 2017, it was revealed that the home automation company was responsible for a $621 million operating loss over the last year.
There’s no shortage of Bluetooth speakers on the market, but we’re starting to see a trend towards speakers in smaller form factors with more features. Voice assistants, fast charging, surround sound, you name it; if you can imagine it, someone’s probably tried it.
We recently reviewed Sbode’s wireless Bluetooth speaker that offered a really, really compelling package at a cheap price, despite a few faults. Now they’ve rolled out a smaller version of that same speaker, touting the same features with a bigger sound for less money. Sounds a little too good to be true, but we got our hands on a review unit to put it through the paces.
With just over a week to go until the official launch of LG’s G7 ThinQ on May 2, it’s difficult to think how the phone maker has any surprises left up its sleeve. From previously leaks we already know LG’s new flagship will sport an MLCD+ display with a notch, that there’s a Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood, and a dedicated Google Assistant button, and now an image has leaked showing the G7 ThinQ from every angle.
If you have a Gmail account (and it would be strange if you didn’t, honestly) you’re going to want to check your sent messages over the past few days. Apparently, there’s been some kind of breach or error that makes it look like regular accounts are sending spam emails to other accounts.
Meizu announced the launch of three new smartphones today that will make up their new Meizu 15 series of smartphones. The new devices stick to some older design cues from the smartphone market, sticking with some bezels, a 16:9 aspect ratio for the displays, and no signs of a notch anywhere. The hardware included suggests Meizu is targeting mid-tier buyers and while solid, nothing really stands out so the company may go for pricing as their unique selling point.
If you are thinking about buying some new headphones with noise canceling technology that doesn’t cost the earth, Anker has you covered. The accessories maker has just launched its new Soundcore Vortex Wireless Over-Ear headphones, and to celebrate, it has also discounted a bunch of other items from 26-35%.
Sleep is important, and I think that might be one of the only things that we can all universally agree with. Sometimes good sleep can be hard to come by, though, but with modern smartphones there are apps that can help with that. One of those apps, Pzizz Pro, is actually available with a discount right now.
It’s no secret that OnePlus is winding up the hype machine in preparation for launching its latest flagship, the OnePlus 6. We already know the specifications the OnePlus 6 will likely feature, the presence of a notched display that can be switched on and off via software settings, and even the tie-up with the upcoming Avenger: Infinity Wars blockbuster. The OnePlus Twitter account hinted on the weekend that the new handset could have a glass or even ceramic rear panel. Today, the CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau, confirmed on the company’s forums that the OnePlus 6 would indeed follow the trend and sport a glass back.
