The Google 8 announcement event had special Oreos for the guests… but you can't get them

So, Google finally launched Android 8 and revealed its name — as the fans have been speculating for years now, the O build of Android is named after the popular Oreo cookies. And what better way to celebrate the OS update than with a bunch of Oreos handed out at the announcement event?

Actually, make them custom cookies while you’re at it. Yup, Google ordered a special batch of Oreos for the launch event — ones with the Android mascot engraved on the cookie and the cream changed to green, instead of being white. We can only hope that it was the same sweet stuff and not, say, wasabi or something …

8 most delicious iPhone 8 features we can't wait to sink our teeth in

We’re all excited about the iPhone 8. The whole world is excited. But why?
While there’s no doubt Apple has something extremely special cooking up in the kitchen (otherwise why would it appoint a Cook for a CEO?), do we really know what’s going to be so great about it? We mean, obviously Apple hasn’t given us an iPhone that looks genuinely new and different from that breakthrough metal slate it unleashed back in 2014, and with the iPhone 8 rumored to finally shake things up dramatically, both media and consumers are gobbling up every new piece of render or leak as …

We bet you can't find all the crafty cats hiding in these photos


Cats are the masters of hide-and-seek.

Whether they’re stalking through the undergrowth or sliding beneath carelessly placed piles of clothes, those whiskery queens of disguise know how to disappear when they want to.

On Sunday night, Twitter Moments rounded up 16 gloriously puzzling “spot the cat” photos. Some are fairly obvious, others take a moment or two, and a few are fiendishly difficult.

See how many cats you can find.

Spot the cat. We’re going to stay up all

Here is why you can't find your favorite Nokia-branded smartphone yet

It’s true that HMD promised to bring all three Nokia-branded smartphones in just about every meaningful market by the end of June. Unfortunately, the Finnish company has yet to achieve what it said in its previous statements.

Although it might be that many countries have already received one or two of the Nokia smartphones, stocks are dwindling, and HMD is hardly able to keep up with the high demand.

If you’ve already purchased the Nokia 3 or 5, then you can consider yourself lucky, as HMD is now gathering data from suppliers and will announce new release …

Samsung just announced a flashy pink Galaxy S8+ variant, and you can't have it

Given the current overcrowded smartphone market, it’s a bit of a mystery why most manufacturers choose dull, lifeless colors for their flagship phones: surely chasing the best-in-line specs doesn’t imply not caring about looks, no? Still, a couple of the big names on the market have been making baby steps toward a more colorful future: HTC and Huawei are the first that come to mind, but it might be time to add Samsung to this list, as well.

This is, you see, because its latest flagship, the Galaxy S8, has had its fair share of unorthodox variants: apart …

Samsung has super-fast new MRAM memory, but it can't make enough of it

Samsung has cooked up the fastest memory of its kind and wants to show it at an event next month, May 24. Called MRAM (short for magnetoresistant random access memory), this type of non-volatile memory uses spin torque transfer technology to read and write data up to 1,000 times faster than current NAND solutions. It also uses less power while active, and consumption hits zero when inactive.

Sounds too good to be true, right? So where’s the catch? Well, Samsung is unable to produce more than a few megabytes of the stuff per unit right now. So MRAM is only good as …

Microsoft can't sell Lumias, so it's now selling the Galaxy S8

It’s too easy to kick a guy when he’s down, so we won’t point our fingers and laugh at Microsoft for its decision to start selling shiny new Samsung phones after giving up on its own. Yes, it’s very tempting to let out a condescending chuckle, but facts are facts.

Microsoft cutting its losses and moving on from a failing venture was solid business practice. The completely unexpected Samsung Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition, which went for pre-order today, is a theoretically sound marketing approach.

MS prides itself on a strong suite of apps, such as Office, OneDrive, Skype, and Outlook. …

Can't get enough of the new Samsung phones and gear? Check out all the extra "Unpacked" footage here

Samsung unveiled a whole bunch of interesting gadgets at its Unpacked event held on Wednesday.

Can't wait for the new red iPhones? Achieve the crimson look with these 7 cases for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus

Apple has lived up to the tradition of closing its online store in order to update it with new products, and this morning, Cupertino unveiled a new iPad model alongside two red-colored variants of last year’s flagship models – the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. 
Although these crimson versions do not offer any software or hardware improvements compared to the iPhones from September of 2016, their unusual shade certainly catches the eye and will undoubtedly attract the attention of many consumers. Most importantly, they are part of Apple’s (PRODUCT)RED …

Can't wait to see the LG G6? Here's an early look at the real thing!

You can’t stop a highly expected smartphone from showing up in advance. The interest is just too high not to reveal it before its scheduled announcement date. Thus, here’s a glimpse at the LG G6 – or a good part of it, at least, about a month before its February 26 announcement at MWC 2017. It’s a looker, ain’t it?
The LG G6 is confirmed to have a 5.7-inch display with an unorthodox aspect ratio that makes it a little taller than before and the screen space is (supposedly) more efficiently utilized. Also note the minimal side and top bezels. Yes, LG …
