Moto adds some premium flair to the budget G5 and G5 Plus

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 08:41:00 -0800

Ever since Lenovo took Motorola Mobility off Google's hands, it's shown a willingness to take risks, most notably with the surprisingly successful Moto Z and its family of magnetic mods. Its G series phones are on the other end of that spectrum: safe, affordable, and surprisingly capable.

The G5 and G5 Plus unveiled at Mobile World Congress continue that trend. Still aimed at the budget market, the new new metal-wrapped phone comes in two varieties, the G5 and G5 Plus, but the visual differences aren’t as stark as their names would have you believe. The base G5 features a 5-inch Full HD 1080 x 1920 LCD display, while the G5 Plus has a slightly bigger 5.2-inch one.

Nokia will use its Withings health devices to send data to your doctor

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 07:30:00 -0800

When Nokia bought French fitness technology company Withings last year, it was unclear exactly what the former smartphone maker had in mind. Withings makes smart scales, activity-tracking watches, and other devices to monitor your wellness, and it continued to update those even after the sale. But now Nokia’s plan is clear: The company will relaunch every Withings product with the Nokia name, overhaul the corresponding Health Mate app, and launch a platform for doctors and patients to share data from Nokia’s health devices. It’s ambitious, to say the least.

Huawei goes all out at MWC with new P10 phones, Android Wear watches

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 07:03:00 -0800

The annual battle of flagship phones that is Mobile World Congress may be missing its most formidable competitor, but a new contender has emerged. After keeping a relatively low profile at last year’s event, Huawei is taking advantage of the void left by Samsung to introduce the P10 family—two high-end handsets that look to cement Huawei’s standing as a major player in the smartphone game.

The two phones might have different names, but they’re equally sleek and powerful. Both include fingerprint sensors on the front—a curious decision in the age of shrinking bezels—and feature diamond-cut all-metal designs with 2.5D glass. A strip across the top on the back houses dual Leica-branded 12MP and 20MP rear cameras, and on the front you’ll find an 8MP front camera.

HP’s Pro x2 convertible takes on the iPad with vertical accessories

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 06:00:00 -0800

HP’s Pro x2 convertible would normally be a bit too corporate for PCWorld, but we’re covering it for two reasons. Announced Sunday at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, it’s among the first Surface clones to appear sporting a selection of 7th-generation Kaby Lake CPUs. It’s also taking on the iPad in areas where the popular tablet dominates. In retail, for instance, you can see iPads in Square payment terminals at checkout counters, and some airlines use them for check-in and documentation. It’ll be interesting to see whether the Pro x2 will be able to carve out some new territory.

The Pro x2’s retail accessory includes a stand so it can be used for checkout.

HP’s Elite x3 Windows phone gets a job with Mobile Retail and Mobile Scanning Solutions

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 06:00:00 -0800

HP’s Elite x3 Windows phone is getting a job, with two similar scanning accessories designed to turn it into a workhorse for vertical industries such as retail and healthcare. Announced Sunday at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, these accessories reinforce HP’s strategy since the Elite x3 launched a year ago: Put it into the hands of corporate employees, and the market share will follow. 

One of the accessories, pictured above, is the Mobile Retail Solution, a barcode scanner that looks like a special cover for the phone. It’s designed to be used in retail storerooms, shipping warehouses and the like, where the barcode helps track products as they move from shelf to truck or display case. Before you blanch at the $999 price, note that it comes with an Elite x3 phone, which accounts for $699 of the cost.

Google will start adding Assistant to Nougat and Marshmallow phones this week

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 05:35:00 -0800

Assistant might be the future of voice-controlled intelligence on our Google devices, but Google hasn’t made it easy to get it. There are versions of it on Google Home, the new LG watches, and in Allo chats, but if you wanted the full mobile Assistant experience, you had to commit to buying one of the Pixel phones.

That’s all about to change with a coming Play Services update. Right on the heels of LG’s declaration that the G6 would be the first third-party phone to feature Assistant, Google announced that it would be bringing its voice-activated concierge to all phones running Nougat and Marshmallow.

Before 5G, some mobile users may get almost-5G

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 05:01:00 -0800

The mobile industry is so anxious for 5G that it’s now planning something that’s almost 5G, but will be ready a year earlier.

On Sunday, many of the world’s biggest equipment vendors and mobile operators joined hands to accelerate the 5G NR (New Radio) specification that will define many elements of 5G. The new technology they plan to produce will handle some of the planned uses of 5G but will be ready for large-scale trials and deployments in 2019 instead of 2020, they say.

There’s a lot at stake with 5G for both carriers and the companies that supply their networks, who are all gathering this week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The next generation of technology will give operators new services to sell, like multi-gigabit broadband and special offerings for the internet of things and connected cars, and it should help vendors emerge from a years-long sales drought following the rollout of LTE.

Hands on with the LG G6: A nice phone, but not especially innovative

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 04:00:00 -0800

The LG G6 has a particularly tall and narrow display. 

That’s it. That’s “the thing.” That’s the marquee feature that is meant to grab your attention and make you think that this is your next gotta-have-it phone.

Oh, sure, the G6 has all the other things we expect from a high-end flagship in early 2017. It has a high-end processor, the Snapdragon 821, as waiting for the 835 would have meant shipping the phone months later. It’s also got USB-C with Quick Charge 3.0, waterproofing, and dual rear cameras. There’s even wireless changing support, if you happen to get a U.S. model.

But the tall 18:9 display, that’s the thing that really makes this phone different from every other phone available.

LG officially unveils the G6, and it's everything we thought it would be

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 04:00:00 -0800

If you didn’t know that LG was releasing its G6 flagship smartphone at Mobile World Congress, you must have not had Internet service for most of 2017. LG itself has been releasing bits of information about its newest smartphone for weeks, and a steady stream of leaks and spy shots have conspired to elucidate pretty much every aspect of the phone thus far.

Well, now the G6 is finally here, and with an extra-tall display and Google Assistant built into the OS, it’s every bit the flagship it was promised to be. Even without any surprises—and even with a soon-to-be-outdated processor—the G6 is a beast that puts LG back on the Android map.

Why this matters: LG needs a hit. Last year’s modular G5 swung and missed big time with its series of attachments, and the V20 failed to capitalize on the Note7 recall. On paper, the G6 ticks off all the right boxes, bringing a sleek, modern design with a big battery, giant screen, and excellent camera. But it remains to be seen whether LG’s 18:9 aspect ratio display is enough to lure buyers, especially with the Galaxy S8 launch looming on the horizon.

The new BlackBerry has a physical keyboard and will arrive in April

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 11:13:00 -0800

The new BlackBerry KEYone smartphone, unveiled Saturday, is the first smartphone to carry the brand that doesn’t come from BlackBerry.

It will go on sale globally in April, said Nicolas Zibell, CEO of TCL Communication, the phone’s manufacturer and licensee of the brand, at a launch event in Barcelona on the eve of Mobile World Congress.

Like the BlackBerries of old, the KEYone has a physical keyboard with raised keys. A neat twist is that it also acts as a touchpad of sorts, and each letter can be used as a shortcut, with a short or long keypress, for 52 shortcuts in all.

For Honor review: Satisfying melee kneecapped by microtransactions and online woes

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 01:16:00 -0800

After two weeks circling opponents, sword held stiffly above my head, waiting for an opening, I think it’s time to slap an official score on For Honor. It’s not the score I wanted to give, and it’s not even a score I’m confident will apply long-term—Ubisoft has leaned heavily on games-as-a-service the past few years, with numerous instances of a stuttering launch experience turning around to an unabashed success. Looking at you, Rainbow Six Siege.

Maybe For Honor will find itself added to that list someday. It has the potential—there’s an excellent core concept here. But oh, there’s also so much reason to be disappointed. Worst of all? There’s no reason for it. Reverse a few key choices and this all could have been averted.

Google shuts Spaces, the content-sharing app you probably never heard of

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 14:15:00 -0800

Last year Google announced a new app called Spaces with a simple goal: simplify the way we share things with people online. Sort of like a virtual room where you could connect with people to engage in specific topic of conversation, the experimental service was one of many in Google’s catalogue that failed to gain many users.

To the surprise of no one, Google has now announced it will be shuttering Spaces. In a post on Google+, product manager John Kilcine broke the news, saying that while Google has “learned a lot about how people come together to share ideas and content around any topic,” Spaces will be moving into read-only mode in the coming weeks before shutting down its iOS and Android apps completely on April 17.

Uber rejects claims it stole Waymo's self-driving car tech

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 14:04:33 -0800

Uber is dismissing allegations that it stole trade secrets from self-driving car rival Waymo, calling them “a baseless attempt to slow down a competitor.”

“We look forward to vigorously defending against them in court,” the company said in an email on Friday.

The day before, Waymo, a spin-off from Google’s self-driving car initiative, filed a lawsuit against Uber, claiming that the company had stolen designs for a key technology that makes computer-led driving possible.

According to the lawsuit, Uber allegedly built a LiDAR system for its own self-driving car that lifts confidential designs from Waymo’s own technology. LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, can essentially help an autonomous car map its surroundings.

Microsoft Store has slashed the Asus ZenBook Flip's price by $200

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:30:00 -0800

If all you need is a portable laptop that’ll easily handle streaming video, browsing the web, and chatting on Skype, you’re in luck. Right now, the Microsoft Store is offering the 256GB version of the Asus ZenBook Flip for just $500.

This price matches the lowest we’ve seen for this 13.3-inch 2-in-1 convertible, and currently undercuts third-party sellers on Newegg and Amazon (who offer this same model for $575) as well as Asus’ own store ($600).In addition to the $200 savings, you get the Microsoft Store Signature Edition of the Flip: meaning very little, if any, preinstalled bloatware.

This week in games: Play Prey as a toilet paper roll, install Doom on a Porsche, and more

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:00:00 -0800

We already wrote about it earlier this week but here’s a reminder: The Ghost Recon Wildlands demo marketing stunt open beta runs this weekend, so if you’re bored on Saturday and want to give the game a spin before plunking down $60, now’s your chance.

What else happened this week? Overwatch teased a new hero, Battlefield 1 teased a new...something, Prey showed off its toilet paper physics, Humble decided to sell a billion hours of Civilization for $15, and someone installed Doom on a Porsche 911. Sort-of.

Google discloses unpatched IE vulnerability after Patch Tuesday delay

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 10:44:56 -0800

Google's Project Zero team has disclosed a potential arbitrary code execution vulnerability in Internet Explorer because Microsoft has not acted within Google's 90-day disclosure deadline.

This is the second flaw in Microsoft products made public by Google Project Zero since the Redmond giant decided to skip this month's Patch Tuesday and postpone its previously planned security fixes until March.

Microsoft blamed the unprecedented decision to push back scheduled security updates by a month on a "last minute issue" that could have had an impact on customers, but the company hasn't clarified the nature of the problem.

FCC puts the brakes on ISP privacy rules it just passed in October

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 10:43:00 -0800

The new chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission will seek a stay on privacy rules for broadband providers that the agency just passed in October.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai will ask for either a full commission vote on the stay before parts of the rules take effect next Thursday or he will instruct FCC staff to delay part of the rules pending a commission vote, a spokesman said Friday.

The rules, passed when the FCC had a Democratic majority, require broadband providers to receive opt-in customer permission to share sensitive personal information, including web-browsing history, geolocation, and financial details, with third parties. Without the stay, the opt-in requirements were scheduled to take effect next week.

Serious Cloudflare bug revealed secret user data from major websites

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 08:57:00 -0800

For months, a bug in Cloudflare’s content optimization systems exposed sensitive information sent by users to websites that use the company’s content delivery network. The data included passwords, session cookies, authentication tokens and even private messages.

Cloudflare acts as a reverse proxy for millions of websites, including those of major internet services and Fortune 500 companies, for which it provides security and content optimization services behind the scenes. As part of that process, the company’s systems modify HTML pages as they pass through its servers in order to rewrite HTTP links to HTTPS, hide certain content from bots, obfuscate email addresses, enable Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) and more.

Zenimax wants to block Oculus Rift headset sales, Gear VR games

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 08:48:00 -0800

The lawsuit is over, but the ongoing saga between ZeniMax and Facebook-owned Oculus VR just got even more serious.

After winning a $500 million judgement against Oculus in early February, Zenimax is now asking to block Oculus from using any Zenimax code in Oculus products, Reuters reports. The request is part of Zenimax’s proposed judgement and final injunction for the recently decided case.

In the court case, Zenimax was awarded $500 million for a variety of issues: $200 million for violating a non-disclosure agreement, $50 million for copyright infringement, and a combined $250 million against three former and current Oculus employees for false designation of origin. The request to halt sales of Oculus products relies on the copyright infringement decision.

LG puts a massive battery in the X Power2, but not much else

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 08:46:00 -0800

LG will be showing its new G6 flagship phone at Mobile World Congress next week, but that's not the only handset the company is bringing to Barcelona. Joining it will be an update to the X Power, the X Power 2. Like its predecessor, the second-gen X Power's X-factor is battery life.

Part of a new line of affordable phones that “incorporates different exclusive features that are usually found only in premium smartphones,” the LG X Power 2 features a massive 4,500mAh battery that will easily get users through a full day of heavy use. LG estimates that the phone “can play back videos continuously for approximately 15 hours, provide navigational directions for about 14 hours or surf the web for around 18 hours.” And if that’s still not enough juice, it features high-speed charging that can provide 50 percent battery life after being plugged in for an hour.

Google rebrands Messenger as Android Messages in a move toward a universal texting app

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 07:50:00 -0800

If you fired up your Google Messenger app this morning, you might have noticed something different: It’s now called Android Messages. And while the new name doesn’t actually change anything about the way we use it, it could lead to big things down the road.

Amir Sarhangi, head of Rich Communication Services at Google, explained in a blog post that the new name is a step toward finally creating a default universal messaging app on Android. As it currently stands, the app formerly known as Messenger comes preloaded on Pixel and Nexus devices and some others, but for the most part, the messaging experience on Android is even more fractured than the OS itself. Many manufacturers ship their own default SMS/MMS app, and most users end up turning to WhatsApp, Allo, or Hangouts for their texting needs.

The United Nations steps in to define 5G, ending a marketing war

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 07:20:00 -0800

With mobile operators’ marketing departments already throwing around claims about their 5G services, the United Nations is weighing in with its definition of what qualifies a network as next-generation.

Verizon Wireless will begin delivering “5G” service to select users in 11 U.S. cities in mid-2017, even though some places don’t yet have access to 4G. And at the Mobile World Congress 2017 trade show in Barcelona, companies including Intel, Qualcomm and Ericsson will be promoting their moves towards 5G.

Google snafu signs users out of accounts, wreaks havoc on OnHub and Wifi routers

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 07:00:00 -0800

The good thing and the bad thing about the cloud is, well, the cloud. The latter part of that trueism was brought home late Thursday when some Google users were suddenly signed out of their accounts and devices.

The problem affected Google Wifi mesh routers, Google’s OnHub router, other devices like the Chromecast, and even some plain old Google Accounts.

The impact on you at home: If this problem affected you last night and you were suddenly signed out of all your accounts, don’t worry. Malcious hackers hadn’t suddenly taken over all your devices. Google says it was just a snafu with the Google Account engine.

Three steps to make managing passwords easier

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 05:00:00 -0800

Passwords are a necessary inconvenience. Yes, they’re a pain to create and manage, but vital for keeping your accounts and devices secure. It might seem we’re approaching the death of the password with the rise of biometric authentication and other such tech; but no single security method is foolproof. For the foreseeable future, expect to rely on a combination of techniques, including passwords.

And, really, passwords don’t have to be a pain. In fact, managing your passwords can be downright easy, or at least easier than you think.

Create strong passwords

There are a number of suggestions for how to create passwords, but the basic idea is that it be hard to guess. To be clear, we’re not trying to keep your neighbor from guessing it, but a computer running through dictionaries of common passwords.

Alphabet's Waymo raises stakes in self-driving car race with Uber lawsuit

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 04:41:00 -0800

The road to develop self-driving cars might be paved with lawsuits. Waymo, a spin-off from Google’s self-driving car initiative, is suing Uber for allegedly stealing its trade secrets. 

On Thursday, it filed a lawsuit against Uber and its startup Otto—a self-driving trucking company—claiming that the two companies were using stolen intellectual property from Waymo, an Alphabet subsidiary.

The lawsuit underscores the fierce competition in the self-driving industry and how the battle might escalate. By lifting the technology, Uber has allegedly built its own comparable LiDAR system within nine months, when Waymo had been developing the tech for nearly seven years, the company alleged.

How to easily keep your cloud files private with Rclone

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 03:30:00 -0800

When cloud storage services first came on the scene, personal data security wasn’t a common feature. Even now, as concern over data privacy has grown, many cloud storage services don’t encrypt the user’s data by default. It’s largely up to the user to take the initiative and enable settings that ensure files are encrypted and private, which can be tedious. Believe it or not, a little command-line program called Rclone simplifies things. It’s available for Linux and other open-source OSes, as well as Windows and OS X.
