PLAYERUNKNOWN'S Battlegrounds, or PUBG for short, is largely responsible for starting the current trend of Battle Royale games. It may have lessened in popularity following the launch of Fortnite and other similar games, but it still has a respectable following. In fact, it just passed 100 million downloads on the Play Store.

It's worth noting that the Play Store count doesn't include downloads originating from China, where the game is massively popular.

0 comments

There's a new beta for the Google app rolling out, and this one takes a sizeable leap in version number to 8.28 from the 8.24 that came out just about a week and a half ago. There's not a lot to see in the way of changes, and even the teardown is on the soft side. Nevertheless, there are a few things to look through. And as always, we're still watching for more changes.

0 comments

We recently reviewed CTL's entry-level Chromebox CBx1, which comes equipped with an Intel Celeron 3865U processor and 4GB RAM. Despite the mediocre specifications, it's actually a fairly decent computer, especially at the low price of $219.99. If you need a Chromebox with a Core i7 processor for some reason, CTL now sells one for $599.99.

The new model has an eighth-generation Core i7-8550U processor, 8GB of DDR4 memory (expandable to 16GB), 32GB of SSD storage (expandable to 256GB), 802.11 AC 2x2 WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0.

The ZTE Axon 7 gets Android 8.0 Oreo, with several catches

0 comments

After a beta program with bizarrely strict requirements for entry earlier this year, an update to Android 8.0 Oreo is now available for the ZTE Axon 7 — with more than one catch. The update isn't being pushed over the air, but rather has to be installed from an SD card, and it'll wipe your device.

What's more, according to testers on Reddit, the build seems to be the same as the last beta version, which explains why it comes with the Android security patch from July.

Tiny new Palm at Verizon positioned as 'accessory' smartphone and we guess that's a thing now?

0 comments

Last year, TCL announced that new devices with Palm branding would launch in 2018, and the first phone leaked a few months ago. The tiny 3.3-inch Palm phone is now official, and it's coming to Verizon next month for a whopping $349.99.

Rather than being an independent phone, it functions as a 'Connected device,' similar to a smartwatch. You have to pay an extra $10/month, and it will receive the same phone calls and SMS messages as your main phone.
