"And so you‘re back from outer space!" Space is a place that‘s easy to get lost in. It‘s a vast void of darkness and light, of choking chill and the fire of a million suns. Space is the final frontier, and we may be a few centuries away from exploring it, that doesn‘t mean we can‘t look up at the stars and dream what it‘d be like to sail betwixt them.

Echo Show gives you a reason to actually use Amazon Prime Photos

The Echo Show is a great digital picture frame. Now you‘ll just have to start using Amazon Prime Photos. There are too many ways to manage your photos online. That‘s a good thing, actually, because choice is good. It‘s just that I‘ve never had any reason to use Amazon Prime Photos, and so I‘d never bothered taking a look at Amazon Prime Photos. Turns out it‘s actually pretty good. Probably not as good or us

There are limited edition Android Oreos, but not for most people

Google and Nabisco have made limited edition Android Oreos. You know what tastes better than new software? New software and cookies. To that end, Google and Nabisco have teamed up to make some Oreo cookies with the Android logo inscribed on top. There‘s also a green filling inside to match the green of the Bugdroid logo. I haven‘t heard anyone mention what flavor the filling is, but I‘d guess it would be mint. According to A

Watch our Android 8.0 Oreo video review!

There are big updates, and there are not-so-big updates. Over the years, some Android versions have brought massive technical and visual changes, while others have tightened up the screws and added polish without shaking things up too much.
