Meet your new favorite sources of free iPhone and Android wallpapers  

Every single time I publish a review of a new phone, at least two dozen people email me asking for the wallpaper shown on the handset in the photos. So today, I have a few pro tips to share. First, I've started to link the wallpapers in question at the end of each review. I've done it twice so far — first with the Galaxy S9 and again with the OnePlus 6 — and people have been appreciative so far. But there's an old expression about teaching a man to fish as opposed to giving a man a f

Scientists discovered new species of ancient sea creature and named it after President Obama  

In many ways, the Earth was a much different place 580 million years ago. The landscape wasn't exactly bustling. Life had existed on the planet for a few billion years already, but you wouldn't have recognized most of it, and the first complex animals were just starting to travel down the various evolutionary paths that eventually led us to where we are today. Researchers just announced the discovery of a pair of very peculiar creatures that lived during that very important era, and they've been

The Oppo Find X is an awful idea – please stop pretending it's not  

Let's be frank for a moment: 2018 is a rough year for gadget bloggers. Smartphones are by far the hottest category in consumer tech, and so it's a key area of focus for most news sites that cover consumer electronics. But smartphones are incredibly boring right now.

They get the iPhone X, too. They don't get the real thing,

In terms of convenience, wireless charging is probably the best thing to happen to smartphones in a long time.

The one Android feature I want Apple to steal for the iPhone  

First there was the Huawei P20 Pro, an iPhone X clone like no other. Then came the Porsche Edition of the phone, with a sky-high price and a few exclusive features, including 512GB of built-in storage and two fingerprint sensors. The other day, Huawei rival Oppo unveiled the Find X, which actually isn't an iPhone X clone. It's very much an Android flagship, with price tag of more than $1,000. And Oppo needed to partner with Lamborghini to create a Lambo version of the Find X, which is — y...

Here's why it'll be tough for YouTube Music to catch up with Spotify and Apple  

Many of us happily play the field when it comes to streaming our favorite movie and TV shows, with multiple subscriptions to services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, maybe HBO and more. Music, though, is a different animal - if you already pay for Spotify, in other words, you don't necessarily need to plunk down coin for a rival service that's just going to get you most of what you already have access to. It's into that fray and an arguably already crowded competitive landscape that YouTube ...

Google is fixing a Chromecast bug that allowed hackers with too much free time to get your location  

Google's popular Chromecast and Home products suffer from a serious privacy flaw that would let hackers discover your location with incredible accuracy, well beyond the information they could learn from an internet service provider. The good news is that Google will fix this issue via a software update that should be released in July, although Google decided back in May not to address it. Until then, the chances of hackers actually finding out your location are incredibly slim, if you're in...

Survey reveals how Netflix freeloaders enjoy the site for free  

There was a joke I saw on Twitter a few weeks back which jokingly said that there was just one lone Netflix subscriber sharing his account with the rest of the world. A similar joke on the same topic claims that some people stay in otherwise unhappy relationships just to keep their Netflix access up and running. The crux of these jokes, obviously, is that password sharing for streaming sites like Netflix is incredibly common, so much so that some people -- after a few years time -- aren't even ...

The phones are expected to offer a similar design as the current iPhone X flagship, but pack improved hardware and run Apple's recently unveiled iOS 12 right out of the box. Rumors say the flagship models might be cheaper than the iPhone X, while the LCD version should be even more affordable. The worst thing about the iPhones of t...

Back in April I penned a piece about why 2018 might be the first year I don't buy a new flagship iPhone. I've been an iPhone user ever since the first model was released in 2007. I immediately saw how much better iOS, then called iPhone OS, was compared to the Nokia and BlackBerry smartphones I had been using. And every single year since 2007, I've purchased a new flagship iPhone, right up until last year when I got the tenth-anniversary model, Apple's new iPhone X. In 2018, however, I thought

T-Mobile might offer a cheap TV streaming bundle real soon, but it all depends on the merger  

Late last year, T-Mobile announced that it had acquired TV company Layer3, a slightly oddball TV distributor that offers an expensive cable-esque TV bundle in a handful of markets. T-Mobile debuted the acquisition in its usual splashy way, saying that "we're gonna fix the pain points and bring real choice to consumers across the country," with some vague plan to have a cheap service with 250 channels. Since then, we have heard precisely nothing about T-Mobile's TV plans, or what Layer3 might ...

Originally unearthed by Guilherme Rambo over at 9to5Mac, the second iOS 12 beta includes references to Watch4,1, Watch4,2, Watch4,3 and Watch4,4.

They're a great alternative to AirPods for two reasons. First, they're a tiny fraction of the price of Apple's pricey cord-free earbuds.

An earthquake struck the island nation of Japan early Monday morning, toppling buildings and causing all manner of distress for residents of the bustling port city of Osaka. Hundreds of people have been taken to hospitals for injuries, and while the death toll remains low at four, officials are worried that may rise as recovery efforts continue. The quake was one of the most powerful to strike the region in some time. Thankfully, the earthquake was more or less confined to dry land, and did not
