The whole point of a device being locked is that unwanted parties...

Lately, dark mode has been all the rage in software UI design. We've seen a system-wide dark mode being added in the Android Q betas, and more and more Google apps are getting an integrated dark mode.

Microsoft may be making a $60 mini Xbox for xCloud game streaming

Stadia, Google's ambitious cloud-streaming project aimed at gamers, is not exactly a one-of-a-kind service. We've seen similar services from the likes of GameCloud, Vortex, and Cloudzen. While they were all a nice idea, none of them really succeeded. A lack of big modern titles, coupled with unreliable connections at times meant that the services didn't...

After the Galaxy S10 5G, Samsung to invest more in TOF sensors

For quite some time now, most of the improvements we've seen in mobile cameras have been due to improvements in software. To a degree, camera hardware has plateaued, with the occasional increase in megapixel-count and secondary cameras being the noteworthy improvements. Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors are set to change that, however, finally making their way into...

Despite the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active only being released earlier this year, we're already being treated to image and information leaks of the second iteration.

Google Lens can now identify works from local artists

Heading to a museum, you'd expect the works on display to have a little bit of background printed next to them to give some context to the work. This is virtually always the case in larger museums, and more often than not in smaller ones. But not all art resides in museums. Things like sculptures...

Google opens a website for Fuchsia OS development

Up until recently, we knew very little about Google's Fuchsia OS. First appearing on GitHub back in 2016 with no official announcement, theories quickly sprang up about what it could be. Some touted it as a replacement for Android, others as a replacement for Chrome OS. The reality was that no one knew exactly what...

The Samsung Galaxy Fold launch hasn't exactly gone well. After all the initial hype, once users actually started to get their hands on the phone, it became clear that this was not the perfect folding phone we had all hoped for. The whole fiasco led to Samsung recalling all models of the device, and things...
