How to add Adobe Flash support to Android 5.0 Lollipop

There is absolutely no question that Adobe Flash took a massive hit when late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs made it his personal mission to crush the shaky web tech and replace it with HTML5. Flash will someday be completely extinct as a result of that crusade, but it’s still hanging on for the time being and many websites will continue to make use of Flash for years to come.

People always talk about how phones and tablets are replacing desktop and laptop computers, but can they really be considered a suitable replacement if they can’t even properly display the millions of websites that still use Flash?

If you have an Android device and want to truly experience everything various websites have to offer, we’ll show you how to quickly and easily add Flash support to your phone or tablet. More →

Coin Review

I just replaced every credit card in my wallet with Coin

By on November 21, 2014 at 11:40 AM.

I just replaced every credit card in my wallet with Coin

Coin is not the future. This is important to make clear right off the bat. The future of payments will look much more like Apple Pay than it does Coin. In the digital age, there is no reason we should still have to carry paper money or plastic credit cards in the United States. We do it because we have to; the government is behind the times and banks are behind the times.

Paper money and plastic credit cards will not exist in the future. Sadly, it maybe be decades before that future is truly realized.

In the meantime, smartphone and wearable-based payment solutions like Apple Pay are in their infancy in America. They’re wonderful and secure options at the small number of retailers where they are accepted, but they cannot replace any of the credit cards in your wallet, let alone all of them. Good luck buying dinner at a restaurant or getting cash from an ATM with Apple Pay.

This is where Coin comes into play. More →

6 apps that completely revolutionize email

Email. Is there anything in our lives that is more necessary and more burdensome? It seems like everyone hates email and no one can live without it, so the obvious next step is to fix it. Of course, in the context of email, the question becomes: What does “fix” even mean and who will finally pull it off?

There are dozens of companies that have taken a crack at “fixing” email, and some have done a better job than others. None have managed to solve all of our email woes, of course, but there are a handful of companies that have actually managed to launch fairly revolutionary email solutions.

And if you haven’t yet tried them out, you really should. More →

HTC One M9 Photos

This stunning HTC One (M9) concept would instantly be the world’s most gorgeous Android phone

This stunning HTC One (M9) concept would instantly be the world’s most gorgeous Android phone

This year’s One (M8) Android phone from HTC is easily the most beautiful smartphone of 2014. The design is incredible and the all-aluminum build is unmatched. Apple’s iPhones are typically the most sleek smartphones each year by a wide margin, but ugly antenna lines and a peculiar protruding camera lens marred an otherwise fantastic design this year.

Turning our attention to 2015, it’s probably safe to say that the upcoming HTC One (M9) will be among the most beautiful phones on the planet yet again next year. Of course, it’s amazing what you can accomplish when pesky things like physics and the cost of materials aren’t standing in your way, and a new HTC One (M9) concept shows us the Android smartphone we have all been dying for.

Your next smartphone might actually withstand nasty drops thanks to Gorilla Glass 4

When it comes to smartphones, there is absolutely nothing more terrifying than the period of time between a phone slipping out of your hand and hitting the ground. It’s a brief moment, but it feels like an eternity. Even the best smartphone cases in the world won’t always protect your handset’s glass screen when it falls at just the right angle, but the next smartphone you buy might actually escape those nasty drops unscathed thanks to Corning’s latest development.
