There's plenty to be curious about Bose’s QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds, including whether they sport their predecessors' water-resistance
Bose disrupted the sound waves recently with the reveal of its super sleek QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds. The premium buds are the latest in the QuietComfort line, following the highly-regarded QuietComfort Earbuds 2. Designed to take noise cancelation to the next level, the QC Ultra buds are focusing on user immersion and a tailored audio experience.
The 2022 OS came with some much-needed refinements
Android 13 was released in August 2022 and became available on all the best phones over time, including the flagship Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro, which were both launched with it preinstalled. The release is as good as obsolete due to its successor, Android 14, which launched in October 2023 and offers thoughtful enhancements to a solid existing system. It's slowly making its way to all recent Android phones. You might still want to learn everything there is to know about Android 13 and all the quarterly feature drops it received while it was still getting new updates.
This bizarre phone is a contortionist's dream, bending backwards to become a wrist-hugging wearable
Foldable phones are becoming more mainstream, but wraparound displays are still pretty new. At Mobile World Congress this year, we saw some pretty wild tech, including Motorola's Rizr rollable concept phone, which has a screen that rolls over the bottom. Motorola's concept phone was one of the most interesting things at the show, and now the company has taken flexible displays even further with a bizarre phone that bends backwards to wrap around your wrist like a high-tech bracelet.
The future of gestures on Android is here. Here's how to use it
Android 14 is full of new features, most found behind the scenes. A couple of years after Google gave us a new look for our favorite smartphones with Material You, the last two upgrades have focused on upgrading elements you might not think about every day. Security, privacy, and speed are three aspects that Android 14 excels at, but Google didn't stop there. A new addition to gestures could change how you think about swiping between apps on your new Pixel 8 Pro, but you need to activate predictive back gestures to see it in action.

Chromebooks come in all sizes and prices, and we've gathered the best that won't break the bank
Buying a quality Chromebook can be difficult, especially if you're shopping for a more affordable option that still performs well and offers some enticing features. While Chromebooks have come a long way since their inception — with many now sporting much better specs, high-end displays, added security features, and LTE connectivity — there are still plenty of duds out there to avoid.
Change your Chromebook login ingo with ease
There are several ways to log in to devices and services, but no way is more secure than a strong password. Passwords are great, especially if you use a password manager to create and store them, but sometimes, we can forget them, or they can be leaked from a data breach. This problem is not unique, and all Chromebooks, even the best and most secure, can have password issues. Chromebooks make it easy to change your password or login information.
The choice depends almost entirely on the phone you have
Every major device manufacturer offers their take on wireless earbuds to complement the smartphones they offer. Giants in the industry don't get much bigger than Samsung and Apple; both make an array of earbuds to complement their bigger-ticket devices, and each provides a Pro model for the most discerning listeners.
The streaming service is rolling out the option to personalize your playlist covers with AI images
Exploring the extensive realm of music can sometimes feel challenging. With so many songs and artists available, it's understandable to feel a bit swamped. YouTube Music has announced two new features aimed at making this journey smoother and more personalized: AI-generated playlist artwork and a speed dial for quick access to your favorite tunes.
Safeguard your company's sales projections and quarter reports from curious eyes
When you use a top Chromebook for personal or work purposes, you may have important files saved on it. It's essential to protect these confidential files from prying eyes. Aside from adding a device passcode, you can add an extra layer of security by hiding files and folders on Chromebooks.
Stream and cast to your heart's content with these amazing Google TVs
When it comes to smart TVs, there are plenty of different brands to choose from, but only a few web-connected platforms to stream your Netflix. While titans like Samsung and LG use their own operating systems for running apps, Google TV takes care of streaming, menus, and other UI elements for brands like Sony, TCL, and Hisense. And Google TV is one of the best smart platforms on the market, and a major upgrade on the older Android TV software.
Non-proton users can access shared details too, but only after claiming a free account
Encryption and security have become household terms in a digital age rife with security concerns and regular data breaches. A trustworthy password manager can prove critical in ensuring your online safety through timely alerts about compromised credentials. They also bring several conveniences like riddance from password reuse, and convenient credential sharing. Proton Pass, from the privacy-focused Swiss brand Proton, is one of the newest password managers on Android, and it now allows credential sharing, just like its competitors.
A few clicks to avoid writing new messages from scratch
Gmail is one of the most popular email services, thanks to the many features it offers and its simplicity. It comes pre-installed on most Android devices and works seamlessly on iPhones, iPads, and all computers through a web browser. Chromebook laptops also come with it pre-installed as part of ChromeOS, making it even more intuitive to use.
Match the beat with your favorite artists on iPhone
Whether you host a potluck, birthday, wedding anniversary, house-warming party, or family gathering, a small karaoke round elevates the party mood in no time. Thanks to the top music streaming services on iPhone, you don't need to rely on your memory or a karaoke machine to sing along with your favorite artists. You can use the iPhone's karaoke mode and show off your singing skills.
'Summarize my latest messages @Gmail'
Bard's capabilities expanded last month when Google stopped limiting the AI chatbot to pulling answers from the web—it gained new abilities to scan your Gmail, Docs, and Drive to unearth the information you seek. The upgrade allows you to ask Google Bard to summarize the contents of emails or extract key points from documents stored in Drive. A couple of fresh updates now make Bard better at summarizing emails and handling images in shared conversations.
Spruce up your Google Chrome browser with a personalized tab
Google Chrome is one of the most popular web browsers on desktops, Chromebooks, and Android smartphones. While it lets you change the background and add your personal flair, wouldn't changing the design of a New Tab page provide a more personalized experience? Wouldn't it be fantastic if you could customize the New Tab page with your city's weather, your favorite team's scorecard, and so on?
OnePlus is confirmed to use BOE's best OLED panel on its next flagship
The best Android phones feature crazy-bright displays with ultra-high resolution and up to 120Hz refresh rate. Samsung's display arm is the leader in OLED technology and supplies screens to almost most smartphone manufacturers. China's BOE has emerged as an alternative OLED supplier for many companies in recent years, though its panels have always been a generation or two behind Samsung. With the upcoming OnePlus 12, though, this might no longer be the case.
Less than 1% of users are still on Android 4.4
WhatsApp is the world’s most used messaging app, as it makes both corporate and person-to-person communication easy and universal internationally. Because of its worldwide reach, it’s integral that the app is available to as many people as possible across different operating systems and OS versions. Not all localities are able to use Android 14 with the technological resources available to them, so some have stuck with Android versions as far back as Android 4.4, otherwise known as KitKat. Now, as we noted back in April that beta versions indicated would happen, WhatsApp has dropped support for KitKat with its newest app version for Android.
Nest Hub Max owners can already queue Assistant without a prompt
One of the best parts of a tablet is its versatility. In addition to supporting mobile apps, these devices can be used for video streaming, making calls, and more — all with a display that is conveniently larger than your phone. However, not every tablet has the same range of functionality. The Pixel Tablet is one of the newer models on the market, but it notably lacks some of the features found on existing tablets. Now, a Google app update indicates the company might bring a helpful Nest Hub Max feature to the Pixel Tablet.
The company made a surprise announcement at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Summit
We already knew that the Xiaomi 14 series would make its debut later this week, but the company's president just dropped a pretty big bombshell at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Summit 2023: it will be the first line of phones to ship with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. Its predecessor, the Xiaomi 13, used a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, so you might think this was expected — but with this year's model being announced earlier than last year's, it seemed like it might miss out on Qualcomm's next-gen chip. Evidently, it was right on time.
