Google Photos Archive Feature Goes Live

Google rolled a new Archive tool out to Google Photos today that helps you clean-up your main photo feed. Going forward, you’ll be able to toss photos aside that you may not want visible at all times without fully deleting them.

The new Archive can be accessed a number of ways. The easiest way to archive photos is to select a bunch, tap the top-right menu, and choose “Archive.” You can also swipe out the app’s side menu, look for the new Archive option, choose it, then tap the little image icon with the “+” sign in the top right, which will let you go through and select items for archiving.  (more…)

DEAL: Amazon Echo Dot is $10 Off Today (Updated)

These days, I think you can find a good deal on one of Amazon’s Echo devices just about every week. This week’s deal is on the Amazon Echo Dot, the smaller, put-me-in-every-room-in-your-house speaker assistant that is powered by Alexa. Normally priced at $50, Amazon has slashed $10 off the little guy today, dropping the price to just $40.

Of course, Prime shipping is there for Prime members, plus you have options of either white or black. Amazon also sells these sweet little Echo Dot cases, should you want to get spicier with your design.

The deal might only be good today, so make a decision quickly.

To build hype as a new company with a new product on the way, OnePlus worked through a bit of social media trickery with the launch of the OnePlus One. Since they had almost no marketing budget, they decided to announce each feature of the phone over a period of weeks in order to stay in headlines and maximize the soon-to-be-launched phone’s exposure. It worked, of course, but it was also ridiculously obnoxious. They have eased off the idea a bit since that first phone, though not completely. And of course, with the OnePlus 5 on the horizon, the trollout of features is back.

This time, we get a confirmation on the processor that will be featured in the new device. It’s a Snapdragon 835!   (more…)
