Generally, smartwatches aren't worth the time it takes to charge them. But when Huawei handed me a review unit of their new Huawei Watch 2, which has pretty much all the tech you can stuff into a smartwatch these days, and runs the new Android Wear 2, I decided to give it a chance. Unfortunately, while both the watch and the new version of Google's smartwatch OS do have a few redeeming qualities, after a few weeks of usage I still can't recommend either. SEE ALSO: This is what Google's Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches might look like On paper, the Huawei Watch 2 is everything a modern Android smartwatch should be: A powerful, versatile wearable watch that's great at tracking your fitness activities. It's got LTE and GPS chips, so you can untether it from your phone. It's water resistant. It has a speaker and a microphone, so you can make calls without ever pulling out your phone.

Enlarge (credit: Andy Rubin ) Android Inc. cofounder and former CEO Andy Rubin has taken to Twitter to tease a new slim-bezeled smartphone. This is the first device we've seen from Rubin's new startup, Essential. The details on Essential came out in a January report from Bloomberg . The report said Rubin is currently building a consumer hardware company, starting with a "40-person team, filled with recruits from Apple Inc. and Alphabet Inc.'s Google." The company is still in stealth mode, but when it goes public, Rubin will be announced as the CEO, according to the report. Bloomberg described Rubin's company as "A platform company designed to tie multiple devices together," and in addition to a smart home product, "the centrepiece of the system is a high-end smartphone with a large edge-to-edge screen that lacks a surrounding bezel." The phone part certainly seems spot on after this picture.

Alternatively, you can use Canon's Android or iOS apps to print wirelessly from a tablet or phone. See related Best printer 2017: The best inkjet printers, laser printers and all-in-ones you can buy The TS5050 has a conventional 100-sheet rear paper feed and front output tray. We had some frustrations with the feed slot cover, which you have to close manually after re-stocking with paper. It's easy to forget, and sometimes needed wiggling before the printer would detect it. Another minor niggle is the lack of automatic double-sided (duplex) printing – at this price we’d expect that to come as standard. Still, it’s good to see that Canon has employed its five-ink system, employing both a pigment-based black for bold text on plain paper, and a dye black for better contrast in photos. Performance: Printing, scanning and copying This MFP is an adequate performer, managing to deliver black text at 12.

Tried to get a film downloaded with flixter on my pc to play through my Chromecast and found it lagged like hell due to having to mirror my desktop with chrome because windows wouldn't allow me to cast directly. So i decided to download the flixter app and the film with my phone but now the quality is crap, i was given the option of SD and HD on the pc but no such option on the app. Why do they make these things so awkward. Any idea if i can change the download quality in the android flixter app? My phone is a Moto G4 which has a HD res screen.

At dawn, after a 33-hour ordeal without food or water, she was dumped back at the bus stop near her home. "It eats me up every time I narrate it," she said tearfully. "I thought I was a small god. Now I know I am not." She did not report the incident to the police. More than a year later, she is still receiving counseling. Rising tensions Wanjiku started receiving threats - and offers of bribes - after she began agitating in 2013 for the Chuka community to own and manage the forest, rather than Kenya Forest Service (KFS). Commercial logging is forbidden in the Mount Kenya reserve but KFS licenses millers to harvest exotic species, like cypress, pine and blue gum, to sell as timber and then replant. But Wanjiku accused the government body of allowing loggers to illegally fell indigenous species - charges it denies. "We don't allow harvesting in the natural forests," Ben Kinyili, KFS's ecosystem conservator, said in a phone interview.

Enlarge (credit: Samsung) Samsung is back! After a rough stretch thanks to the recall of the Galaxy Note 7 and the arrest of Samsung chief Lee Jae-yong , Samsung is dusting itself off and jumping back into the smartphone game. Galaxy Unpacked 2017 starts on March 29 at 4pm UK time (5pm CEST, 8am PST, 11am EST), where we expect Samsung to finally take the wraps off its newest flagship, the Galaxy S8 . The Galaxy S8 promises to be a major revamp of Samsung's flagship, expected to get its most drastic redesign ever, with super-slim bezels and an extra-tall 18.5:9 display. As its first major smartphone launch since the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, we're also expecting a lot of reassurances from Samsung that this phone has gone through a battery of battery tests, which should be fun to watch. We'll be there to cover all the twists and turns live, with a live blog of the festivities and a hands-on after the event is over.

Over the past few months, there has been rumors that HTC was working on yet another flagship device for 2017, codenamed 'Ocean'.

Samsung's announcement that revamped Note 7s will go back on sale, however, surprised some with the timing - only days before it launches its new S8 smartphone on Wednesday in the United States, its first new premium phone since the debacle last year. Under pressure to turn its image around after the burning battery scandal, Samsung had previously not commented on its plans for recovered phones. "Regarding the Galaxy Note 7 devices as refurbished phones or rental phones, applicability is dependent upon consultations with regulatory authorities and carriers as well as due consideration of local demand," Samsung said in a statement. South Korea's Electronic Times newspaper, citing unnamed sources, said on Tuesday that Samsung will start selling refurbished Note 7s in its home country in July or August and will aim to sell between 400,000 and 500,000 of the Note 7s using safe batteries.
