    There’s no shortage of phone assistants for Android, some more popular than others. If you’ve never bothered to set one up, long-pressing your smartphone’s home button will result in Google Assistant popping up, and that’s fine if that is what you want to use. If you’re more fond of Microsoft’s alternative, though, you can replace Google Assistant with Cortana as … Continue…

    Even if you’re not as lazy as I am, you probably spend a lot of your time sitting down.

    A Colorado father has joined forces with a handful of medical professionals to form a non-profit group called Parents Against Underage Smartphones, PAUS for short. PAUS, apparently serious despite its difficult-to-take-seriously name, is proceeding with a ballot initiative in Colorado that seeks to ban smartphone sales to preteen children, citing their potentially addictive nature and possible health ramifications. The entire … Continue…

    06.19 / 14:34 www.slashgear.com Slashgear.com - Technology

  15. iPad Pro 10.5 Review (2017): Half the laptop-replacement story

    06.19 / 12:46 www.slashgear.com Slashgear.com - Technology
    It’s easy to leap to categorizing new products like Apple’s iPad Pro 10.5 as either revolutionary or evolutionary. Do they break new, uncharted ground, or are they last year’s flagship, polished and refined for another attempt? At first glance, the iPad Pro 10.5‘s familiar shape makes it easy to conclude evolution, but I’m not so sure. If anything, that familiarity … Continue…

  17. Super Smash Flash 2 has everyone, should have kitchen sink

    06.19 / 10:41 www.slashgear.com Slashgear.com - Technology
    It may not be a household name like Street Fighter, but Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros is also one of the best loved fighting game franchises, because of its ironically (for a fighting game) lighthearted nature and the assortment of characters pulled from various Nintendo properties. But what if you take those elements even further, almost to their most illogical conclusion. … Continue…
  18. Tertill is a solar-powered weeding Roomba

    06.19 / 09:49 www.slashgear.com Slashgear.com - Technology
    Even before this current generation of smart home appliances and the Internet of Things wave, homes of the future were already flaunting the rolling robot discs that is the Roomba. But Roombas only take care of the unwanted materials inside the house. For unwanted things outside the house, like weeds in your garden, there’s Tertill. Perhaps taking its name from … Continue…
  19. Galaxy Note 8 skips onscreen fingerprint sensor due to this flaw

    06.19 / 08:46 www.slashgear.com Slashgear.com - Technology
    It seems that the evidence is piling about the Galaxy Note 8’s lack of an optical fingerprint sensor hiding underneath the screen.

Then it seems that the Galaxy Note 8’s alo earlier launch is going to force Samsung to … Continue…

    06.19 / 07:36 www.slashgear.com Slashgear.com - Technology
    While the Surface Laptop is a thing of beauty, there are a few things that make it somewhat less appealing. There’s the rather exorbitant price tag for a computer aimed at students. There’s also the rather disappointing repairability score iFixit recently discovered. And then there’s the one way ticket from the limited environs of Windows 10 S to the full … Continue…
