Chrome Dev 48 Rolls Out With Early Bluetooth Web API Support On Chrome OS Dev Channel And Android Marshmallow

Posted: 21 Nov 2015 02:55 PM PST

Google's Chrome development team regularly implements new APIs to extend the possibilities for web apps to behave more like their native counterparts. The most recent addition to the Chrome dev channel allows web developers to use Bluetooth to communicate with nearby hardware. This could be used for things like an online fitness tracker that gets data from a heart rate monitor or for a controller to drive a Sphero, all without installing a native app.

PasswordBox Will Shut Down In 2016, Customers Offered A Discount On Intel's True Key

Posted: 21 Nov 2015 12:26 PM PST

imageWhen big companies buy small companies, there's always a chance that the smaller company will more or less disappear, along with its products. Some good examples in the mobile space would be HP's acquisition of Palm or Microsoft's similar purchase of Nokia. Not all tech companies do this - Amazon and Facebook seem to be pretty hands-off with their acquisitions - but Intel certainly does. Less than a year after Intel acquired the company that makes popular password manager PasswordBox, the company announced via its blog that the product will be abandoned sometime in 2016.

Google Handwriting Input Adds Support For Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Hebrew, And Burmese

Posted: 21 Nov 2015 06:02 AM PST

google-handwriting-input-15-hero

Google's Handwriting Input got its independent Play Store listing back in April and has since received very few updates. That's why the latest version bump to 1.5 (and the subsequent 1.5.1 release) seemed to be significant and in fact, it added 5 new languages to the list of existing 82 languages. These are Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Hebrew, and Burmese.

You will have to download language packages if you choose any of these input methods inside the app, but once that's done and enabled, you will be able to scribble on your screen in your language of choice and Handwriting Input will convert that into text in any app.

Sony's Concept for Android has been out for quite some time with the previous update bringing double tap to wake back and adding a new boot animation.

The newest update (build number MDB08M.Z1.2153) brings support for Xperia Themes and other minor things like the ability to set a default homescreen and to take a screenshot via power menu, among other bug fixes.

The feedback for Sony's program has been pretty positive so far and it's really a great idea letting Sony Xperia enthusiasts beta test Marshmallow on the Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact.

Pushbullet Hosts AMA To Explain Reasoning Behind Pro Plan, Announces Tablet SMS Support

Posted: 20 Nov 2015 03:47 PM PST

The reaction to Pushbullet's pro plan earlier this week was not what the developers had hoped for. Many users cited the $5 monthly price and removal of some free features as justification to declare Pushbullet literally satan. Pushbullet's developers have always been active in the community, so Ryan from Pushbullet (guzba on Reddit) is doing an AMA to explain.

What it comes down to is that Pushbullet was at a crossroads, according to the AMA.
