With Waze's new child reminder feature, you can receive a notification once you reach your destination.

NestSpaces

Nest products monitor the many areas of your home, so it's not too much of a stretch to think you will want to view your home by room instead of gadget. The latest app update does just that. Nest's new Spaces view groups together all of the Nest products in your home by the room they're in.

The Nest app automatically enables the Spaces view if you have at least one camera connected to your account.

SwiftKey admits connection between sync outage and prediction bug

Posted: 29 Jul 2016 10:40 AM PDT

swift

As we reported yesterday, SwiftKey's synchronization service has been down for several days. At the time, there was speculation that the outage was related to reports from users that they were getting predictions from other accounts. That's not speculation anymore—in a brief post on the SwiftKey blog, the company confirms that it disabled sync because of the prediction bug.

The first reports of this issue began popping up almost a week ago.

Upcoming HTC Nexus Phones Will Not Share Same Build Quality

Posted: 28 Jul 2016 11:26 PM PDT

It's been a while since there was any talk about Google's upcoming Nexus lineup but now there has been new developments regarding the differences between Marlin and Sailfish.

NexusBlog has apparently received word from a source within HTC about Marlin and Sailfish not sharing the same build quality. This does make sense as Marlin being the premium model, will be made almost entirely out of metal like the HTC 10. Whereas Sailfish being the cheaper model, could sport a polycarbonate build or maybe even some metal similar to the recent Desire releases.

Both phones are expected to come with a Snapdragon 820/821 SoC and Android 7.0 Nougat.

Samsung teases soon to be released Note 7 with new video

Posted: 28 Jul 2016 05:02 PM PDT

Samsung has released an official teaser video for the Galaxy Note 7, and while it doesn't give us any new information on the device, it's pretty entertaining.

Granted, we really don't need much more info on the Note 7. Leaks have exposed pretty much every spec and angle of the device possible, so we know what we're going to see at the Samsung event. All that's left is official confirmation. The video does hint at waterproofing though, so it will likely share the IP68 rating with the Galaxy S7.

Watch the video above and get excited. We're going to see the device unveiled in just five days, so we'll soon know which rumors are true and which aren't.
