Google Is Fixing Yet Another Pixel 2 Bug

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:45:35 +0000

(image)

Google has acknowledged yet another Pixel 2 bug, while also promising to squash it soon. This particular bug means some handsets emit a low buzzing sound. Which is obviously far from ideal. Still, like almost everything these days, it can be fixed at a later date with an update. The Pixel 2 is meant to be Google’s new flagship smartphone. And in our review of the Pixel 2 we gave it top marks in many areas, asking, “Is This The Best Smartphone Ever?” It may be, but it would be churlish to deny the Pixel 2 has shipped with a...

Uber Wants You to Have a Stress-Free Holidays

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 18:35:22 +0000

(image)

The holidays can be a stressful time of year. So, Uber is making four changes to the service designed to help. This includes live location sharing (hopefully implemented better than last time), the expansion of its use of Beacons, requesting an Uber for a friend, and in-app gifting. Uber has had a tough 2017. It started with claims there’s a toxic culture at the company, which led to the #DeleteUber movement. Travis Kalanick later resigned as CEO, and Uber then launched its 180 days of change, kicking things off by finally allowing riders to officially tip their drivers. Moving On...

Can You Trust Your Favorite Linux Desktop to Stick Around?

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 16:00:00 +0000

(image)

When I first started using Linux, Ubuntu had two gray panels that went across the top and bottom of the screen, and apps were orange. Within a year, those panels became tan. Then they became black. Soon Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, began developing its own user interface. This went through a few iterations before remaining stagnant for half a decade. Now it’s gone. Ubuntu has switched back to the GNOME desktop environment, which long ago abandoned those two gray panels for a fancy overview screen and virtual desktops. Long story short, Ubuntu hasn’t gone anywhere, but it sure doesn’t...

What Is a Cryptocurrency ICO and Can You Make Money?

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 14:00:00 +0000

Bitcoin was first conceived by Satoshi Nakamoto back in 2009, but it leapt into the mainstream in 2017. In the twelve month period from November 2016, the value of a single Bitcoin rocketed from $710 to $7365. Bitcoin is far from the only digital currency, or application of the underlying blockchain though. Other mainstream cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, and Litecoin have also gained a substantial following. Litecoin and Bitcoin Gold formed as a result of a hard fork from the main Bitcoin blockchain. They are still cryptocurrencies but differ in their implementation of the blockchain. Other blockchain platforms like Kin, or...
