You can now preorder an awesome N64 Bluetooth controller for iOS, Android and PC

Are you sick of playing mobile games with touch controls? Would you rather plug an old Nintendo 64 controller into your phone than tap and swipe at the screen?

Well, I have good news and bad news.

The bad news is that you can’t just plug an N64 controller into your iPhone. The good news is that 8Bitdo is about to release a Bluetooth N64 controller that will wirelessly connect to your computer or mobile devices.

iPhone 7 vs. Android Hacks

This is the Israeli company that can hack any iPhone and Android smartphone

This is the Israeli company that can hack any iPhone and Android smartphone

If Cellebrite sounds familiar, that’s because the name of this Israeli company came up during Apple’s standoff with the FBI over breaking iPhone encryption. The agency managed to crack the San Bernardino iPhone with the help of an undisclosed company. Many people believe it was Cellebrite that came to the rescue. Meanwhile, the company revealed that it could hack just about any modern smartphone, but refused to say whether its expertise is used by the police forces of repressive regimes.

MacBook vs. Pixel 3 Andromeda

Google is working on a MacBook killer running a special breed of Android

Google has already started teasing its October 4th event where Pixel smartphones are meant to show up. But that’s not everything Google is announcing in early October. The most important thing the company might unveil is the Andromeda operating system, a merger between Android and Chrome OS.

Andromeda isn’t a commercial name, but rather an internal codename for the initiative, which will represent a major shift in Android strategy. Google will be able to take the best from both worlds and release other types of Android devices, including better laptops and tablets. The first laptop running Andromeda will come out next summer, per one report.

The Pixel phones may not be the most interesting thing Google unveils next month

Google started teasing its October 4th mobile event a few days ago, and if you’re familiar with recent rumors you probably know two things about it: the Nexus phone is dying, and the Pixel phone will replace it.

Google will have other hardware on display during the event, but the company is also expected to unveil a massive milestone for Android. Andromeda, as a new operating system is internally called, might be the most important thing coming out of Google’s October 4th event.

You can download Google Allo right now if you hate privacy

Google a few months ago unveiled two new mobile apps to talk to your friends, including video chat app Duo and iMessage rival Allo. Starting today, both are available on Android and iOS, as Allo is finally available to download — Duo was launched only a few weeks ago.

But before you dive in and install Allo on your Android device or iPhone you should know that Allo doesn’t have your best interest in mind, at least when it comes to privacy. More →

Android user switches to iPhone 7 from pure Android and has some surprising opinions

Android user switches to iPhone 7 from pure Android and has some surprising opinions

One of the reasons why analysts are so quick to call new iPhone releases boring is because they often look at a new device from the perspective of someone who already the owns previous model. So when the iPhone 6S was released, for example, and everyone said that it didn’t really bring anything new to the table, most analysts overlooked the fact that most buyers were coming over from the 5S. That being the case, most iPhone 6S buyers did find the device to be a compelling upgrade.

The Galaxy S8’s hottest feature might be a new operating system

We now interrupt your regularly scheduled iPhone 7 news to check out what the competition is working on. Apple just unveiled its best iPhone yet, which will put pressure on Samsung and everyone else to come up with even better devices.

Google’s Pixel phones will run a brand new Android version that hasn’t even been announced

Google’s Pixel phones will run a brand new Android version that hasn’t even been announced

By on September 6, 2016 at 1:57 PM.

Google is expected to release two new HTC-built smartphones later this year, the Pixel and Pixel XL. Although Google has long used its Nexus brand to debut new versions of Android, the two new devices this year are rumored to ship with something even newer than Google’s delicious Android 7.0 Nougat.

Twitter leaker and Android developer LlabTooFeR claims that the Pixel and Pixel XL will come with Android 7.1, meaning that there’s a good chance we’ll never see brand new phones running the just-announced version of Google’s new OS.
