  • Verizon and AT&T will stop selling real-time location data of its users
    von Joe Maring am Juni 19, 2018 um 8:07 pm

    T-Mobile's conducting an "internal review" into the matter. Last May, U.S. carriers came under fire after it was discovered that they were tracking real-time location info of their subscribers and then selling that information to third parties. Following a heap of backlash over security and privacy concerns, both Verizon and AT&T have confirmed they're ending this practice. First reported by The Associated Press, Verizon sent a letter to Oregon Democratic Senator Ron Wyden (who's been particularly critical of this topic) on June 15 announcing that it would stop selling this data to brokers who then sell it to other companies. Shortly after Verizon made this announcement, AT&T followed suit and confirmed it was doing the same thing. As for T-Mobile and Sprint, things are still up in the air. Although T-Mobile hasn't permanently stopped selling real-time user location, it did say in a statement to The Verge that: While we continue to review the facts and determine next ... […]

  • Moto Z3 Play: Everything you need to know!
    von Joe Maring am Juni 19, 2018 um 7:59 pm

    Motorola packs a punch for round three of the Z Play. Motorola's Moto Z Play line has gone through a lot of changes in the few short years it's existed. The original Z Play was an excellent alternative to the much more expensive Moto Z and offered tremendous battery life with support to take it even further with Moto Mods. The Z2 Play decreased the battery capacity while increasing the price by $50, and this year with the Z3 Play, we're met with the same 3,000 mAh battery and $499 price tag of its predecessor while also getting dual cameras, a full glass back, and a new on-screen gesture system. If your interest has been peaked by the Z3 Play, here's everything you need to know! Check out our hands-on preview If you want to know what it's like to play around with the Moto Z3 Play, why not take a look at our hands-on coverage?

  • Spigen Liquid Crystal case for Galaxy S9 review: A clear winner
    von Hayato Huseman am Juni 19, 2018 um 7:00 pm

    Not every case needs to be expensive to be functional and protective. Since just a few days after I got my Galaxy S9, I've been using Samsung's official Alcantara case and loving it. It's soft, and it lets me keep the phone mostly protected without sacrificing the premium look and feel. But here's the thing: I paid $50 for a thin case that doesn't even cover the bottom of the phone. Cases don't have to be expensive or be made out of fancy materials like Alcantara or leather to fulfill their purpose, though. First and foremost, a case serves to protect your phone from the inevitable scratches and drops it'll encounter over the months and years to come. Ideally, it looks good too, and doesn't add too much thickness to your phone so it still fits comfortably in your hand and pocket. The Spigen Liquid Crystal case checks all of those boxes for only $10.99. Spigen Liquid Crystal case for Galaxy S9 ... […]

    von Dan Thorp-Lancaster am Juni 19, 2018 um 6:44 pm

    von Marc Lagace am Juni 19, 2018 um 6:00 pm

    What's the best microSD card to use with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8? The Galaxy Note 8 is an absolute workhorse of a phone. You can do more than any other phone with the S Pen, and really the only limitations you'll face will be battery life and internal storage. If the 64GB of base internal storage on the Note 8 isn't going to cut it, you'll want to invest in a quality microSD card and add up to 256GB of additional storage. That means you'll have more space for all your music, 4K videos, photos, and whatever else you want to store. Best of all, the prices for microSD cards are getting better and better!

  • Google's adding a new layer of security to peer-to-peer APK downlods
    von Joe Maring am Juni 19, 2018 um 5:46 pm

    No action is required by app developers for this to work. If you live in a country where mobile data is expensive and/or your options for internet connectivity are limited, you probably pretty familiar with peer-to-peer app sharing. Starting today, Google's introducing a new layer of security to ensure the APK files you get with peer-to-peer sharing are safe and secure to use. Per an announcement on the Android Developers Blog, Google says its adding security metadata onto APKs so that it can verify whether or not that APK was originally distributed via Google Play. For apps you do get through these approved channels, Google notes that: We'll be able to determine app authenticity while a device is offline, add those shared apps to a user's Play Library, and manage app updates when the device comes back online. Google also says that this change benefits developers as it: Provides a Play-authorized offline distribution channel and, since the peer-to-peer shared app is adde... […]

  • How to prepare your Google account for when you pass away
    von Jerry Hildenbrand am Juni 19, 2018 um 5:00 pm

    Your loved ones have enough to worry about when you shuffle off this mortal coil. Preparing your Google account is easy and something we all need to do. It's not something we like to talk or even think about, but we're all going to die one day. I sincerely hope that day is far off for all of us and the time between now and then is filled with happy memories, but when it does happen your friends and family probably aren't going to think about your Google account and all the personal information you have stored there. It might seem trivial to some, but for others, it's important that this all be given to someone who can take care of it all responsibly. Your Google account holds more than just your search history. You may have active credit information or even funds in Google Pay, Google Photos will likely be filled with memories your friends and family will want to see, or you might have important documents in Google Drive. Any information about you will be important to those you lea... […]

    von Alex Smith am Juni 19, 2018 um 4:53 pm

    It's time to delve into some of the PS4's best games. Remember PlayStation's Greatest Hits titles back in the day? From the original PlayStation all the way up to the PlayStation 3, there were tons of older video games which recieved the 'Greatest Hits' label, along with a nice drop in price down to $20 or $25. As for the PlayStation 4 though, there have only been a couple of games which recieved the honor. Considering the console has been out for close to five years now, the absence of the Greatest Hits program has become more pronounced to gamers. Today, PlayStation fixes all of that with its announcement of the PlayStation Hits lineup. Beginning June 28, fifteen select PlayStation 4 games will drop in price down to $19.99 in US retail stores and the PlayStation Store, many of which are PlayStation-exclusive titles.
