The few months in between the end of the holiday season and the end of February the following year are some of my favorites. Because new flagship phone releases almost always come to a stand still during these times, we often get to settle in to a phone and truly get to know it. Instead of jumping from one phone to the next to get the next review out, this is a time where we get to become somewhat of a consumer. It’s kind of fun, actually!
As you can tell from the title, the Google Pixel (the regular, smaller one) has been in my pocket, by my side since I reviewed it back at the end of October. This is the phone that most fits my needs. (more…)

Google Opinion Rewards, the app that every single one of you should have installed if you like free cash to pay for your Google Play spending habits, received an update today. In the update, Google added a slideout menu to modernize the app a bit, but they also added the option to receive a notification sound when a new survey is available. You should probably turn that on.
The update appears to be live for all to download right now. (more…)

According to the Chrome team, this update focuses on dramatically increasing the efficiency of webpage reloads.

We are a solid month away from the LG G6 unveiling at MWC, and as we inch closer, you will begin to be presented with what should be a complete picture of what the G6 is shaping up to be. Currently, we have seen what the top half of the device looks like, what the entire body may look like, and today, we’ve got a pretty solid understanding of the important specs we should expect to see.
