Free Ad-Supported Google Play Music Radio Streaming Option Makes The Journey North To Canada

Posted: 02 Dec 2015 02:54 PM PST

Screenshot 2015-12-02 at 5.45.51 PM

Canada and the US may be neighbors, but that northern border is quite a ways away from most of the contiguous 48 states. It takes quite a bit of time to drive up from a place like California, and as we know, all Google services must make the trip from San Francisco. Well after nearly half a year of driving, the ad-supported version of Google Play Music has finished the trip to Canada.

Google Is Shutting Down Songza On January 31st, 2016

Posted: 02 Dec 2015 01:45 PM PST

Google acquired the streaming music service Songza more than a year ago, and it has operated in parallel with Google Play Music all this time. But no more. Songza is being shuttered on January 31st, so existing users have about two months to migrate over to Play Music. The good news, most of Songza's features are already in Play Music.

Google certainly wasted no time making use of the technology and expertise is got from Songza.

Outlook Developers Decide Maybe It's Nice To Have Quick Access Buttons At The Bottom, Like Gmail Used To

Posted: 02 Dec 2015 01:45 PM PST

OutlookQuickAccess

When it comes time to design an interface, there is a serious question to ask—are you a top or a bottom? Me, I'm a bottom. I find buttons much easier to access when they're at the bottom of the screen. Reaching towards the top, to me, is simply awkward.

In the latest version of Outlook, the developers must feel the same. They've taken the quick access buttons that used to reside in the top of the side navigation menu and moved them down below.

Songza is shutting down on January 31

Posted: 02 Dec 2015 01:00 PM PST

After a long transition period, Songza has announced that it will be shutting down on January 31, 2016, as it completes its merger with Google Play Music. Google purchased Songza in July 2014 and said that no immediate changes were planned for the service. Since that time, Songza's features have slowly been added to Google Play Music until complete parity of features was reached in June 2015.

Now that all of Songza's services have been rolled into Google Play Music, the service will shut down for cohesiveness. Songza's founders are urging users to make the switch and they've spoken about the work that they put into getting the transition just right, making sure that no features were lost in the switch.

As of today, Songza is notifying users of the shutdown by email and notifications within the app and website. If you head to the app, you'll be prompted to migrate your Songza account to Google Play Music, which will save your favorite playlists, recent stations and thumbs-upped songs, making it a seamless transition.

HTC One M8 now receiving update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Posted: 02 Dec 2015 11:00 AM PST

It hasn't been too long since Android 6.0 Marshmallow was released, and now manufacturers are beginning to push out updates for Marshmallow. HTC is now sending out an update to Marshmallow for (surprisingly!) the HTC One M8. The One M8 is HTC's flagship from last year, which is why we're more than a little surprised that its HTC's first device to be updated to Marshmallow.

HTC One M9 owners don't need to fear too much. HTC's own Mo Versi confirmed that the Marshmallow update for the One M9 is coming soon, and they'll let customers know when it's ready. HTC likely just ran into a few more bugs with the One M9 during testing, causing it to take a bit longer.

The Marshmallow update is now being pushed to the unlocked HTC One M8 and should be sent out to all unlocked devices within the next 24 hours. Versi also mentioned that things are going well in regards to the carrier versions, and that HTC is working closely with the carriers to ensure timely updates.

If you get the update, drop a comment and let us know!

Is Your Marshmallow Powered Nexus Having Bluetooth Issues? If So, You’re Not Alone

Posted: 02 Dec 2015 09:31 AM PST

Nexus 5X and 6P

 

Marshmallow was another great step forward for Android but like lots of new things, its not without its growing pains.  There's a growing thread on the Android Issue Tracker with reports coming in that Bluetooth is not functioning properly in Marshmallow regardless of the device.  In particular, Nexus devices running Marshmallow are not playing well with in-car Bluetooth systems.  Some users are having issues with the devices staying paired while others are having calls rerouted to the handsets as soon as calls are connected.  In a world where distracted driving is an ever growing issue, this is a pretty big problem.

I've personally noticed the issue with my Nexus 6P.  I initially thought it was just my car's Bluetooth as I'd had some issues previously with other devices but after reading through some of the thread, my issues are identical to many other Marshmallow users out there.  I use my built in Bluetooth system pretty regularly so hopefully this gets resolved sooner rather than later.

No Major External Changes Coming To The S7

Posted: 02 Dec 2015 09:16 AM PST

S6 Edge+ and Note 5

Samsung hit the reboot button when designing this years flagship devices: the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5.  Gone were the "cheap" plastic backs and plastic frames, in were luxurious glass backs and beautifully crafted metal frames.  The reboot, in my opinion, was successful as Samsung produced some of its best looking phones to date and it appears this design language will stick around for at least another year.

According to a report coming out the Korean Media, Samsung doesn't have any plans to make any major changes to the design of the upcoming Galaxy S7.  According to the source, Samsung is feeling the pressure from the growing number of Chinese manufacturers to cut unnecessary costs so that they can price their devices more competitively.  Rebooting the design every year, is apparently one of those unnecessary costs.

So what changes should we expect with the next generation of Samsung's?  The source states that the S7 will have "improvements both in picture quality, performance and some other new features."  In other words, better screen, better cameras, better processors.  Current rumours point at a Q1 2016 announcement so more leaks and rumours are undoubtedly going to start flooding the internet.

ShiftWear: a new type of wearable

Posted: 02 Dec 2015 07:44 AM PST

We've seen a lot of wearables hit the market in the past couple of years, but the majority have been watches and bands, with an occasional exception here and there. While the options have grown in variety, the market itself is still surprisingly homogenous. So how about wearables for your feet?

Enter ShiftWear, an extremely intriguing new pair of shoes that integrates technology directly into the shoe itself. In fact, the sidewalls of the shoes are actually e-ink displays. That likely sounds like a crazy concept, and it is, but it's just crazy enough to be ridiculously cool.

Putting e-ink displays into the sidewalls of the shoes enables customization of the shoe design on a whim. The displays connect to an app on your phone that allows you to simply change the design as you please. ShiftWear sneakers even support animation, which means that you can put animations on the sides of your shoes, making it an incredibly cool feature. You can also use static images, which, because of the e-ink technology, won't use any power until you change them.

ShiftWear have batteries that last for roughly 30 days, give or take a bit depending on your use of animations. The company behind ShiftWear also has some interesting plans if it reaches certain funding levels. For example, if $2 million in funding is reached, the company will integrate a technology that allows ShiftWear to charge as you walk, using the energy from your steps. In addition to that, ShiftWear will also feature wireless charging if this funding level is reached.

ShiftWear is currently in active funding on Indiegogo, with pricing starting at $150 for the low-end pair of shoes, and going up to $350 for the most elaborate pair. The minimum funding goal of $25,000 has already been reached, and as mentioned, there are several different pricing tiers that add perks when reached.

Samsung unveils three new smartphones in its 2016 Galaxy A lineup

Posted: 02 Dec 2015 07:44 AM PST

Samsung's Galaxy S lineup seems to get all the attention, but you should definitely check out the company's new Galaxy A lineup for 2016 if you're in the market for a great mid-range smartphone. The new Samsung Galaxy A7, A5 and A3 are all built with aluminum and glass, but the internal specifications of the phones are all slightly different, diminishing along with their screen sizes.

The Samsung Galaxy A7 sports the best list of specs, with a 5.5-inch FHD (1920×1080) Super AMOLED display, 1.6GHz octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, fingerprint scanner, 13-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization, 5-megapixel front-facing camera and 3,300mAh battery. The Galaxy A5′s specs get bumped down to a 5.2-inch FHD display with 2GB of RAM and a 2,900mAh battery, while the Galaxy A3 only has a 4.7-inch 720p display with 1.5GB of RAM and loses OIS and the fingerprint scanner.

Samsung is planning to release all three phones in China by the middle of this month, with global availability expected in early Q1 of 2016. Pricing for the three phones isn't yet available, but we're sure they will not be the cheapest mid-range smartphones once they do go on sale.

HTC-built smart scale shows up in Bluetooth SIG database

Posted: 02 Dec 2015 07:44 AM PST

HTC has yet to announce when the re-worked HTC Grip will launch, but a new listing on the Bluetooth SIG product database shows that HTC and UnderArmour are working on a new fitness-focused device. Named the UA Scale, the new Bluetooth-enables smart scale will measure weight and body fat, likely transferring the data to UnderArmour's UA Record app in your smartphone. The official product description reads: "HTC & UA provide a Bluetooth scale to measure weight and body fat."

While smart scales are not a new concept, the few that are currently on the market are all basically the same. The Garmin Index Smart Scale and the FitBit Aria both measure weight, body mass index, body fat and muscle mass, keeping track of all the details in their respective apps while tracking your progress over time. If HTC and UnderArmour do get around to launching the HTC Grip, a Bluetooth connected smart scale seems to be the perfect companion product.

With the UnderArmour brand and marketing support, do you think HTC's connected devices will be able to improve the company's bottom line in 2016?

Motorola added some variety to their smartwatch line up this year by launching the Moto 360 2nd Gen in two different sizes.  Well another variation of this years time piece will soon be available in Canada as Motorola announced that they will soon be offering the Motorola Moto 360 Sport to Canadians.

As the name suggests, this particular variation is more than just a time piece as it is designed to be your fitness companion as well.  The silicone construction repels water and sweat and ventilation channels will help keep things cool.  The watch also supports a variety of different health-centric apps such as Google Fit, MapMyRun®, Under Armour Record™, Strava, and Fitbit™.

In terms of pricing and availability, the Moto 360 Sport will be available in the new year and will start at $299 USD.  Canadian pricing will likely fall in around $350 if I were to wager a guess.  Once we have a firmer release date we'll be sure to pass it along.

First BlackBerry Priv update brings improvements to camera, performance, and more

Posted: 01 Dec 2015 06:46 PM PST

The BlackBerry Priv finally launched last month, bringing an end to a seemingly endless stream of rumors and speculation. And if you picked up BlackBerry's first Android phone, you'll be pleased to hear that it's now getting its first software update.

BlackBerry says that its now pushing its inaugural update to the Priv that includes improvements to the camera, performance, stability, and security. The update weighs in at 475MB and can be grabbed by going into Settings > About > System Updates on your Priv. Note that the update is currently only rolling out to units purchased from ShopBlackBerry. Carrier-branded models will get the update starting on December 7.

Here's BlackBerry's official changelog for the update:

  • An improved camera: We've implemented a number of tweaks that improve the speed of our camera app, and re-tuned it for better low-light image quality.
  • Better performance: We've also tweaked the PRIV's software to improve overall system performance
  • Improved stability: The update further includes a number of adjustments designed to improve device reliability and reduce instances of crashing and freezing.
  • Enhanced security: Lastly, the release includes December's security patches – rest easy knowing your device is protected against the latest Android security threats.

BlackBerry also says that it'll update some of its custom Android apps starting December 14. Here's what those updates will entail:

  • Camera: Now supports 16:9 photos
  • Keyboard: Increased language support and emojis added to predictive typing
  • Hub & Contacts: Now includes WhatsApp
  • DTEK by BlackBerry: More notification options to alert you when apps use your info

It's nice to see BlackBerry pushing the Priv's update out around one month after its release. It shows that the company is committed to keeping it up to date — including with the latest security updates — and that it's taking its first Android phone seriously, which it should since there's a lot riding on the Priv's success or failure.

Have you tried a BlackBerry Priv yet? If so, what do you think of it?

Google rolls out expanded Chrome Data Saver, image search bookmarking feature

Posted: 01 Dec 2015 06:46 PM PST

Google is constantly working to make using the Internet on our phone better, and it recently made two big updates that'll do just that.

First up, Google Chrome is getting an improved Data Saver mode that'll reduce data usage by up to 70 percent. It does this by blocking "most" images when you load a web page on a slow connection. If you'd like to load the images on a page, you can do so by tapping the individual images that you want to see or hitting a "Load Images" button to bring 'em all up.

googlechromeremoveimages

Google says that this expanded Data Saver will launch to Chrome users in India and Indonesia first, followed by rollouts in other countries in the coming months. The feature is targeted at folks that routinely find themselves on slow connections, as it'll help to speed up the page loading process and conserve data for folks on limited data plans by blocking images that they don't care about.

The other notable feature being rolled out by Google will help you to dig up images that you previously searched for and found interesting. Once you perform a Google image search while logged in, you can simply tap an image and hit the "Save" button that'll pop up. You can then easily find these bookmarked images again later on, and you can even organize them into folders to make it easier to locate a particular image once you've amassed a large number of bookmarks.

Google says that this image bookmarking feature is currently available in the US and that it'll work on all major browsers on both Android and iOS.

OnePlus Selling An iPhone Case? Wait… What?

Posted: 01 Dec 2015 06:01 PM PST

OnePlus is no stranger to odd/bizarre/offensive marketing strategies and here's another one to add to their resume.  OnePlus has begun selling iPhone cases.  Yes, you read that right.  They are selling iPhone cases.

The case, which is designed for the iPhone 6 and 6S, features their signature sandstone finish and comes in black.  The price tag isn't the cheapest at $26.99 but it does come with a little something extra.  Anyone who purchases one of these OnePlus iPhone cases (that was weird to say) will also receive an invite to purchase the OnePlus X.

Now it all makes a little bit more sense.  OnePlus is obviously trying to make a little something extra from those who are still trying to get their hands on an invite to purchase the budget OnePlus X while at the same time getting their name out there once again.

I wonder how many they'll actually sell…

T-Mobile is once again expanding its Music Freedom offering, which lets customers stream music from select services without using up their monthly data allotment. Today's addition brings another 11 services into the fold, bumping the total number of Music Freedom services up to 44. Here are the 11 new services being added today:

  • Aud.io
  • Dash Radio
  • DatPiff
  • Jango
  • KCRW
  • Noon Pacific
  • Radio Danz
  • SomaFM
  • Spinrilla
  • StreamOn
  • TuneIn Premium

T-Mo says that its customers are now streaming 196 million songs every day with Music Freedom, a figure that's up 311 percent from when it launched in 2014. So clearly T-Mo folks are digging this Un-carrier move. Are there any music streaming services that you enjoy but that aren't yet included with Music Freedom yet?
