Huawei says the Mate 10 Pro is "the best phone you've never heard of," will bring it to the US next week

Last month, Huawei said that it would showcase a flagship
smartphone at CES 2018 in order to officially launch it in the US. We were
expecting that flagship handset to be the Android Oreo-based Mate 10 Pro, and now Huawei is confirming
this.

 

Huawei will bring the Mate 10 Pro to CES 2018 presenting it as “the best phone you’ve never heard of.” By you, the
company means US customers, as Huawei’s smartphones are already quite popular
in other regions around the globe, including Asia and Europe.

 

But is the Mate 10 Pro really the best phone you’ve never
heard of? Well, that’s …

Lawnchair, the best near-stock Android launcher you've never heard of, is now on the Play Store

On the topic of launchers, we have a pretty good understanding of what makes a third-party offering better than the built-in one – customizability, ease of use, and snapiness, of course. Nova Launcher is the anecdotal default answer when you will most definitely find when you go search for Android launchers, but it’s always nice to have some alternatives up in your alley.
A new entrant on the launcher scene is a niche debutant that has been doing the round in the underground – dubbed Lawnchair as a tongue-in-cheek joke, this one is closely mimicking the appearance …

Bite Helper might be the mosquito bite conqueror you've been searching for

TwitterFacebook

My leg is itchy. Not all of it, just the now-healing spot where a mosquito bit me over the weekend. The scab is tiny, indicating I barely scratched it after the bite, but there’s still something there.

I think I have Bite Helper to thank for not enduring a week’s worth of itchiness, though I can’t be certain.

In a nutshell, Bite Helper is a battery-operated, $39.95 hand-held gadget that uses a combination of focused heat and vibration to reduce mosquito bites to harmless, itch-free bumps. 

Bite Helper has a plastic, somewhat pickle-shaped body; a flat, metallic business end; and one-button operation. To use the device, you place the quarter-sized metal front directly on the bite (as soon as you notice it), press the button and its so-called “Thermo-Pulse Technology” goes to work. For maximum effectiveness, you hold it in place for between 30 and 45 seconds. Read more…
