Google Home & Home Mini launches in India

It is official, folks: Google is releasing its Home and Home Mini smart speakers in India. Better late than never, as it has been over an year since both devices have been released on other markets. Their Indian prices are Rs 9,999 (around $154) and Rs 4,499 (roughly $69) respectively – more than in the US, since India prices tend to be that way for some or other economical reasons.

Russians made a $20 thousand mail drone, then they hit a wall. Literally

Yay, another reason for me to have a low opinion on our eastern cousins. Russian company Rudron/Expeditor 3M has recently organized an event in which it tested its expensive, experimental mail drone in a town of Ulan-Ude, Siberia. Well, test did not went all that well. Moments after takeoff the pilot lost control of the drone, and the machine crashed into a nearby building. There goes your 20k! The video of the test flight can be watched here. It is speculated that the area’s high WiFi signals have messed up drone’s controls, but most people in the know-how consider that ...

O tempora o mores, you cannot even have a large and influencial international company without someone trying to kill you anymore… just a few hours ago a shooting occured in YouTube’s US headquarters in San Bruno, a town near San Francisco. Right now not much is known about the case. There have been three wounded and one dead, the shooter herself, one Nasim Aghdam.

Maybe reconsider your ...

Pokemon Go will (probably) allow you to catch your own Mew

Mew is a Pokemon that has a rep being hard to get. Very few Pokemon games allow you to have that pocket monster at all, and those that do require you to work pretty hard to find and catch one – as it should be, what with Mew being a legendary creature and all that jazz. Pokemon GO has now joined the list of video games where obtaining Mew is possible, or so we believe. Niantic has released a somewhat vague press release in which the company promises – vaguely – that a newly available quest lines will reward players with their own Mew. These quests, called Research and ...

What to do when your phone is lost or stolen

Smartphone is possibly the most important tool that a modern person has on her or himself. It allows us to communicate with people over distance and has a plethora of utility that simply makes life easier (whether it makes life better is debatable, but certainly easier). It’s our picture book, encyclopedia, newspaper, bank and mirror all at once. When we go out we may forget our keys, our wallet or even socks, but very few people will leave their smartphone behind. Therefore, it is no wonder that losing this device, either to thief or ill luck, is one of the worse things that can ...

Android P is here. Cool?

Android’s newest operating system is now available in Developer Preview, for now reserved for devs and those with special interest (and, presumably, leverage in the industry) in Android’s OS. That is nice, but should the ”common man” care about P?Not really, at least according to people wiser than I. Judging by what can be found online, Android P is mostly interesting for developers. That is because it allows app creators more freedom in optimizing their programs towards the OS, particulary the notch. Average user will only notice the smaller changes, like changed ...
