The best speakers for Chromebooks and Chromeboxes in 2022

Find the best speakers to bring that Chrome-powered computer alive

4
By

As convenient, practical, lightweight, and even surprisingly robust as Chromebooks and Chromeboxes are, not to mention cheap, they’re not typically known for speaker quality. In fact, that could be said for most laptops, which means you might need to invest in something that can upgrade that sound. Headphones and earbuds work well, but you might not want to spend hours with your ears covered— at least not at home or in your office.

The Play Store is losing the permission overview for apps

It looks like Google wants to emphasize the Data Safety section instead

4
By

Google recently launched the new Data Safety section on the Play Store. In it, app developers are required to explain what personal data and which permissions they use in order to provide their services. It looks like the company deems the Data Safety section a suitable replacement for the permission list of old. Play Store listings now show a shortcut to an app’s Data Safety section rather than the plain list of all permissions it can ask to get access to.

Google Pixel 6 vs. Pixel 6a: Which one should you buy?

Google's upcoming mid-range phone gives the Pixel 6 some stiff competition

4
By

Following the Google Pixel 6 series launch in October 2021, the company announced its mid-range Pixel 6a at Google I/O 2022. Despite its lower price, the Pixel 6a packs many of the same features and specs as the Pixel 6. So, should you buy the Pixel 6a and save some money instead? Or is the bigger Pixel worth the additional $149? Here's how the two phones match up.

How to take a screenshot on any device

Capture your screen in a flash

4
By

Taking a screenshot is a feature on nearly every device with a screen, but the method varies massively across them—even on similar products like phones or laptops. Most devices offer a dedicated screen capture tool, so you don't have to install third-party apps to take a screenshot. That said, if you find the screenshot functionality lacking, it may be worth installing a separate screenshot app or extension.

Amazon gives us the power to late-night shop as we please. However, that may not always be a good thing. Because of this, we may occasionally make impulse purchases and later regret scrolling through our wishlist.

4

Samsung is one of the few Android OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) that offers a call recording function with the Phone app in supported regions. Call recording is incredibly useful, especially when you want to make a note of directions, meeting discussions, or critical conversations during a voice call.

Fairphone Earbuds

This company makes buying replacement earbuds as simple as getting a new set

Fairphone acknowledges that you usually don’t break or lose both your wireless earbuds

4
By

As great as all the best true wireless earbuds are, their small size does come with a disadvantage. You tend to lose or break one of the two earbuds they own, but to replace them, most companies will force you to buy a full set as a replacement — but not Fairphone, at least anymore. The business noticed this issue and has now started selling individual left and right replacement buds in its shop.

Hot on the heels of the announcement, the company has seeded the fourth beta firmware for the Galaxy Watch4 series.

Sony SRS-XB 13 EXTRA BASS Bluetooth Speaker

My only Prime Day purchase is this cute Sony speaker — and it's about to sell out!

The Sony SRS-XB13 is more than just adorable, it gets all the essentials right

While many amazing Prime Day deals have crossed my desk the last two days, I have a frugal streak that keeps me from spending my own money on new "toys," especially when I already have an apartment overflowing with cases and Chromebooks. In fact, I think I have approximately ten Bluetooth speakers in my apartment already, and yet, I simply couldn't deny the practicality and precociousness of the Sony SRS-XB13 Extra BASS Compact Bluetooth Speaker.

Kindle Paperwhite SE review bump article1

It's hard out there for many people right now, which makes a life-improving deal even easier to recommend. The newest Kindle Paperwhite is one of my favorite gadgets of the past year, and not necessarily for the reasons you'd think. Yes, it's a very good e-reader, and finally ships with USB-C along with an improved e-ink display, water resistance, and optional wireless charging on the Signature Edition.

There have been deals on Samsung phones just about everywhere these last two days, not just at Amazon, and as Amazon starts selling out of some sizes and colors, Samsung's own website seems to be picking up the slack — and for the next few hours, you can take an extra $100 off the Galaxy S22 series and current Z series simply by clicking on a live stream of nothing.

WhatsApp is working to let you add a voice message to your status

You'll soon be able to rant to all your contacts at once instead of just select friends

4
By

The concept of posting ephemeral "stories" — photo/video/text posts that automatically disappear after a day — was pioneered by Snapchat, before eventually getting copied by Instagram and then by every imaginable app available. Meta, in particular, made it a point to not only add Stories to Instagram and Facebook, but also to WhatsApp, where we get something very similar in the form of that app's "status" updates. Currently, you can post photos, videos, GIFs, and text messages to your status, but you might soon get access to an all-new option: voice messages.

Emoji are a simply indispensable part of how we communicate everyday, thanks to their sheer efficacy at relaying emotions, reactions on WhatsApp, expressions, and thoughts — all without lots of unnecessary exposition. The library of available emoji has been swelling over the years, thanks to the Unicode Consortium’s efforts and even Google’s Emoji Kitchen initiative. New emoji have been submitted to the Consortium for approval in September and inclusion in the Unicode 15 standard later this year, and now we're getting an early look at what to expect from them.

Why #DearNothing was trending after the Nothing event

Nothing India pushes back against false accusations of discrimination

4
By

Nothing's pre-launch strategy of slowly trickling out details for the Phone 1 has done wonders for its hype cycle. Combined with the fact that many of the initial hands-on reviews for the phone seem positive, it seems like the company is headed for a solid launch of its first phone. Unfortunately, mere hours after the launch event, things quickly turned sour when Nothing found itself in the midst of another controversy, all surrounding #DearNothing going viral on Twitter.
