Google Home – the company’s smart speaker – has just received a new feature. A user on reddit discovered that Google Home can now visualize the weather forecast on a Chromecast-connected TV.
Despite not being the latest OnePlus models out on the market anymore, the OnePlus 3 and 3T continue to receive updates that fix issues and introduce new software features on a regular basis.
Today, new Open Beta patches have been made available for the two 2016 high-end models. The updates carry different names (OxygenOS Open Beta 29 for the OP 3 and 20 for the OP 3T), but the changes included are basically identical. Still, there’s a lot of new stuff on board, so let’s take a look at the entire patch log:
We deliberately omitted Tesla from our list of brands that let you start, stop or unlock your vehicle remotely with the help of your smartphone, as this car has been developed from the ground up with connectivity and apps in mind. Hey, Tesla cars even get firmware updates, so this latest news from the universe of the world’s most popular electric vehicle is not overly surprising.
How about getting your car battery preconditioned from the comfort of your phone? “Preconditioning” refers to the process of warming up the battery so as the software doesn’t limit the car’s abilities when you …
Pokemon GO creator Niantic is updating the popular mobile game with a glut of new features. For its most significant bump in quite some time, Pokemon GO adds a number of characters from the Sapphire and Ruby era including Mudkip, Treecko and Torchic, as part of a rollout that will see the introduction of some 50 creatures from the Hoenn region. Additionally, dynamic weather support means that a Pokemon hunter’s own climate can influence the game itself.
Carrot Weather is one of the unique weather apps on the App Store as it delivers weather updates with snarky, cynical, and funny messages every time you open it. For that, it is loved by many and maybe hated by some. The developers also do a great job at regularly updating the messages to keep them relevant to current social and political events, memes, and whatever else is in the news.
The app has received a major UI update for its Apple Watch version — it now features the speech synthesizer on the Watch, so will be able to hear the snide comments from your wrist; it features data point …
The launch of the iPhone X was not as uneventful as the that of the other iPhones released by Apple this year. Many customers found weird issues with Apple’s flagship, some more serious than others.
Last week we reported about such an issue that made the iPhone X screen become temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid change to a cold environment. At that time, Apple promised to address the problem in an upcoming software update, but aside from that, no other information was provided.
True to its promise, Apple has now released an update that fixes …
New Hampshire’s Mount Washington Observatory is home to some truly treacherous weather. In 1934, the summit even played host to the fastest wind gust ever recorded on the surface of the Earth: 231 miles per hour.
Now, 105 mph isn’t quite that fast. But, as you’ll see from the video above, it’s no picnic to walk in.
On Friday, weather observer Tony Padham ventured outside in those gusts — as well as the summit’s coldest wind chill of the year thus far (-40 degrees Fahrenheit) — for what he called “a bit of fun.”
Is struggling to stand in frigid mountain gusts my definition of fun? No. Is this video still extremely fun to watch? Yes. Please enjoy. Read more…
Some iPhone X users have noticed that their touchscreen becomes unresponsive with a rapid change of temperatures, like, say, going out of the house in cold weather. Well, the weather has to be near freezing, and the screen apparently stops being operational for a few brief seconds, plus locking and unlocking the display prompts the iPhone X to again register touches, but it must be annoying nonetheless, so Apple issued a promise for a fix.
More and more users are trying Android launchers to the point that it has become a trend. However, there are probably only a handful of launchers very popular among Android users, and Action Launcher is one of them.
