Imagine getting into a cab in the morning where your Skype call and calendar are already set up in front of you. Or hailing a car at the end of a long day of work and your favorite music is playing. And the playlist depends on whether your destination is home or a bar.

The kinds of experiences you create with an app are different for a car.​

These are some of the things Ola is implementing as part of a partnership with Microsoft it sealed earlier this month. The Ola Play touch console – usually fitted to the back of a front row seat, just like on a flight – lets a commuter play music and video, adjust the temperature, or use Microsoft’s Skype for...

Shopping for a new smartphone can be exciting and stressful. With so many great options available, it can be hard to choose the perfect one.

You have to be smart when deciding which phone to opt for. These things can be expensive, and you’ll likely use the one you get for at least a year or two before upgrading.

I can’t tell you which device to get. We all have different wants and needs. But I can tell you a few things not to do when shopping for a new handset to avoid common pitfalls and narrow down your choices.

1. Spending too much money...

I don’t know how I withstood the Tamagotchi craze of the 1990s and early 2000s — I can thank my Game Boy Color for that, I guess — but I understood why it was so popular. For those who fell into that craze, you might be happy to learn that, in celebration of Tamagotchi’s 20th anniversary, Bandai Namco announced My Tamagotchi Forever for mobile.

Thanks to much more powerful hardware in this day and age, your Tamagotchi is far more expressive this time around that you might remember, with all of them living in a new town called Tamatown. Aesthetically, My Tamagotchi Forever seems to be inspired by Animal Crossing, a feeling that is somewhat extended to the gameplay,...

As Thanksgiving celebrations begin in the US, Samsung is embracing the season of gift-giving in its own way by rolling out the third Android 8.0 Oreo beta for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, as well as the November security patch for all other S8 users.

At the moment it seems like only beta testers in the UK have received the latest Oreo beta firmware, but the US and South Korea should follow fairly soon. Hopefully the US version also carries a fix for the nasty bug some users reported after the...

For the OnePlus 5T, the company replaced the OnePlus 5‘s telephoto lens with a 20 MP shooter that supposedly captures more light and performs better in low-light scenarios. Instead, we noted in our initial review that the OnePlus 5T’s low-light performance was fine[​IMG], something that OnePlus CEO Carl Pei hopes to rectify with future updates.

Pei took to OnePlus’ forums to share that the OnePlus 5T will receive an update that looks to improve the cameras’ low-light performance,...

Snapchat is the messaging platform that every other messaging platform is looking to for ideas. This, despite recent reports of $443 million in losses and slowing user base growth (yes I know it’s still reasonably popular). While Snap eyes a redesign for its mobile app, Facebook looks like it’s nabbing another one of Snapchat’s current features.

As pointed out by The Verge, Facebook Messenger users have taken to Twitter to announce that they are...

Here in the US, today is Thanksgiving, which means it’s the official start of Black Friday shopping. Many retailers and companies use today as a means of pushing as many of their products into your shopping cart as possible with a litany of deals, but do not count OnePlus as one of those companies.

If you visit OnePlus’ website, you’ll be met with a large message that basically states that the company will not partake in Black Friday discounts. According to OnePlus, folks already save money buying its smartphones because they offer...

If you’re in need of some help from a virtual assistant, one of the better routes to go down is by picking up smart speakers. Not only are they perfect items for budding cord-cutters, but with Black Friday coming up fast, they look to be great stocking-stuffers for those wanting a little extra functionality out of their speakers.

Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up a handful of what we believe are great deals for smart speakers. If you are looking for other sorts of technology deals, make sure to check out our Black Friday round-up, where we collected the best technology deals we could find just in time for the busiest shopping day...

While most smartphone OEMs are creating standard and plus or XL sized versions of their smartphones, Sony believes there’s still a market for a small, compact flagship that doesn’t skimp out on the specs. But is there still a need for a small phone with flagship caliber specifications or have consumers fully adapted to the abundance of large screened smartphones that we have today? Find out in our full review of the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact!

Design

The Xperia XZ1 Compact, as the name suggests, is a smaller version of Sony’s main flagship, the Xperia XZ1 and as such it shares many of the same features and specifications. Aside from the phone’s smaller size there are...
