    Samsung, delivering software at the speed of sound. Dull, throbbing noise through thick layers of foam and lead. Like, seriously, this would've been useful way before the time when you're about to launch the next iteration of your Gear S lineup. Great. It looks like Koreans are starting to pair up their Gear S2 and Gear Fit 2 wearables to their iPhones. It's part of a beta test of iOS compatibility that Samsung promised would happen for the S2 by mid-January. Well, lucky you, Verizon customers. You were the only ones that almost got it. But this program should spread it to everyone (we ...

    If you're looking for a computing catch-all that will get you Spelunky on one end, Microsoft Excel at another and Asphalt 8 at a completely different limb, you may just have it soon enough, thanks to some company called CodeWeavers. One catch? You have to be comfortable with a Chromebook. Okay, not actually — let us explain. Developers are finalizing CrossOver, a Windows application boot program based on Wine, for Android. With things cinching up nicely and the introduction of Android apps to Chrome OS, the team went cheeky on all of us and decided to play a Steam game on ...

Point is, Cupertino is no longer ignoring Mountainview's mobile fanbase while also recognizing that providing services to them can only have the company stand to benefit. We've been hearing whiffs about when Apple Music could be hopping over to the green side. Well, it's nearly here. And Apple is looking for help — maybe yours — to test it out. Okay, the thing is, Apple contracted the job out to beta testing organizer Centercode via its consumer-facing front, Betabound. ...

    Solving the Windows Phone app gap has been a constant challenge for Microsoft. Developers making third-party copies of apps available on other mobile platforms have been shut down. First-party developers have shut down their WP ops as well. And those dual-booting Windows/Android devices that we kinda wanted for a hot second? Didn't go far with them, huh? Well, if you have the hardware you want and have preview build 10512 of Windows 10 Mobile installed, you can now have the means to port in Android apps. How's that for a solution? One XDA developer was able to push chmod adb commands to ...

    We live in a world where there are three major phone operating systems. Each of these major OS’s is robust and feature packed. There is some differentiation between them, but honestly, they’re all almost on equal footing with each other. It starting to make me wonder, what reasons do people have for switching platforms any more? Well...mostly equal Now let’s be 100% frank here. Not all operating systems are created equal. Each platform has a thing or two to hold over the other two in some capacity. To some of you, these will be major flaws or benefits. But looking at it objectively, ...

    Wearables, especially smartwatches, are the next "big thing" in mobile technology. Exactly what they should do is still being discovered through iterative trial and error. Currently we have the Pebble 1.0 and Pebble 2.0 (referring to the firmware on the watch itself, and not to be confused with Pebble and Pebble Steel) and the Galaxy Gear. There are a few other more minor players, but already we're seeing the proverbial floodgates open -- and it's not necessarily a good thing. Don't get me wrong, choice is good. Competition is great. Learning from one's own mistakes is valuable, and ...
