Opendoor lets you take private open house tours at your own convenience

Posted: 22 Oct 2016 09:21 AM PDT

Open house tours aren't very schedule-friendly for employees and people who have busy schedules and lives. They always happen during working hours and on a few select days, and more often than not, there are dozens of other potential buyers touring the house at the same time as you, annoying you with their comments and mere presence.

Opendoor aims to solve that issue by streamlining the open house process as much as possible.

While I personally don't play much Minecraft anymore, it remains one of the most popular games of all time. In fact, it's currently in second place for best-selling game of all time, only bowing to Tetris. Mojang has released yet another Minecraft: Pocket Edition update, titled "The Boss Update."

First up, this update brings official mod support to Pocket Edition in the form of 'Add-ons.' These Add-ons are essentially textures and JSON files, so developing them is extremely easy.

Google Support Services now on the Play Store, only actually works with Pixel phones

Let's face it, not everyone's first thought when they have a technical problem is to Google it. You might be the designated 'tech person' for your family or friends, making sure granny doesn't get malware on her dusty Windows XP desktop. Some people need an actual person to help them, and that's completely okay - that's where Google Support Services comes in.

One of the Pixel's exclusive features is 24/7 support straight from the Settings app, which even allows support agents to control your device (if you allow them) if needed. Now Google has published the Google Support Services application to the Play Store, to allow updates without new system updates.

Ever since it constrained its free plans, Evernote hasn't been the same darling of note takers that it was before. Some people were driven off to other apps, but for those that decided to stick around, there are interesting goodies lurking in the latest update to v7.9.6.

The app has been quick to implement one of Android 7.1's new highlight features: app shortcuts (previously known as launcher shortcuts). If you tap and hold on the Evernote icon on the homescreen of a supported launcher on a device running Android 7.1, you'll get 4 different shortcuts you can immediately launch: search, new text note, new audio note, and new camera note.

Chrome 54 was just released, bringing a substantial amount of changes for both users and developers. Now the first Chrome 55 Beta has been released for all platforms, and there's some exciting changes in store for Android users.

Download Manager

Chrome's built-in download manager first appeared in Chrome Dev early last month, but only now has made its way to the Beta channel. The Download Manager doesn't just serve as a simple list of all your downloaded files (or dozens of APKs, if you're like me), it's also how you get to saved pages.

LG to discontinue modular design with next year’s G6

Posted: 21 Oct 2016 04:41 PM PDT

Industry sources are reporting that LG Electronics is cancelling its plans for a modular design in the LG G6. The news comes from South Korea's etnews, which states that it has heard from multiple representatives throughout different industries. LG garnered attention in early 2016 for the introduction of a modular design into its flagship G5 smartphone. However, sales have failed to perform to standards and consumer satisfaction with the device has been low, largely due to high cost and a lack of necessity for modules at this point in time.

While LG has stated that it will pursue a modular design in the future, that comes into question with this report. The company has faced production struggles due to the complexity of a modular design. Combined with weak sales, the situation may have driven the company to revert to more traditional designs.

LG is reportedly looking to add new features to the G6, while using a non-modular design. The company may draw inspiration from its V20 smartphone, which is seeing success in the wake of Samsung's discontinuation of the Galaxy Note 7.

LG is expected to launch the G6 in spring 2017.
