Fitbit announces improved community aspect with groups and personal goal setting

Posted: 07 Jan 2017 07:30 AM PST

One of the strongest aspects of the Fitbit experience is the social element where you can check your rank among friends, engage in challenges over a day, week, the weekend, the holidays, or more, and taunt or encourage each other along the way. But unlike several other fitness services, Fitbit has never had a proper community with groups, posts, individual shares and comments. That is about to change now.

At CES, the company announced a new Community section that takes the Friends section to the next level.

The Doodles that adorn Google's homepage have become a hallmark of the company's famously quirky spirit. Some of them are informative, some are inspirational, and some are even interactive. However, it's pretty easy to miss new images if you're not checking the Google home page daily or keeping close tabs on the official Twitter account of Google Doodles. Starting today, you can begin receiving notifications on your phone when new Doodles are posted.

Verizon bumps upgrade fee to $30, no longer offers 2-year contracts to existing customers

Posted: 06 Jan 2017 04:30 PM PST

Verizon introduced a $20 upgrade fee not long ago, but that didn't last long. Now the fee is officially $30 and it applies to both buying a device at full retail price and on a payment plan.

There also used to be a $40 upgrade fee for those getting new two-year contracts, but two-year contracts are no longer available to existing customers. While there is no official announcement for this, the two-year contract option has disappeared for existing customers.

If you're planning on picking up a new device on Verizon soon, be ready to shell out an extra $30 on top of the cost of the device. Maybe buying a phone from a third-party that works on Verizon is a better choice these days.

Google announces four more Daydream-ready devices

Posted: 06 Jan 2017 04:30 PM PST

Google Daydream already supports a few current devices, but four more are being added to the stable. These devices are the Huawei Mate 9 Pro, the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9, the ASUS Zenfone AR, and the ZTE Axon 7 with the Nougat update.

All these devices share one thing in common, and that's a high-resolution display that's necessary for good VR. If you own any of these devices, you'll be able to use Google Daydream apps and games with a Daydream headset. You can pick up a Google headset or wait for Huawei's headset, which had adjustable focus to compensate for the need for glasses.

VR is getting more and more common, so we're excited to see where it goes. Leave a comment with your thoughts!
