New Guess Connect Android Wear watches announced in two sizes with lots of gold

Myandroid.com / March 22, 2017

By Andrew Martonik

More fashion names are getting into the Android Wear world.

You may have forgotten by now that Guess actually had Android Wear watches, but it’s hoping to re-spark enthusiasm for its brand in the smartwatch world with two new entries in the Guess Connect family. The new Guess Connect models come in two sizes, corresponding with different styles: a 41mm women-focused design, and a 44mm with more of a men’s look. The 41mm Guess Connect will have multiple color choices, including silver, gold, and rose gold.

Just like we’ll continue to see throughout 2017, the Guess Connect watches are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, which is designed specifically for Android Wear 2.0. Because we won’t see the products actually launch until late this year, Guess isn’t laying out any more specs at this time. And to be fair, most people looking at a Guess smartwatch likely don’t care about how much RAM is in it either.

Guess takes its best shot at who it thinks will be interested in a Guess Connect watch:

The global fashion powerhouse recognizes the importance of providing smart, hi-tech value on the wrists of their young, sexy, and adventurous consumers.

Uh huh. That perfectly describes us! Well, they’re bound to appeal to someone — Guess sells plenty of mechanical watches and is an extremely well-known name in fashion. Google has shown a propensity to make partnerships with well-known fashion brands for Android Wear rather than just electronics companies, and it’s a good dual-pronged approach that can appeal to a wider audience.

We’ll have a better idea of complete specs, pricing, and availability of the Guess Connect watches later this year.

Neverware offering Office 365 focused version of CloudReady Chrome OS

Neverware is now offering a version of its take on Chrome OS with Microsoft OneDrive and Office 365 integration.

CloudReady is software designed to breathe new life into your old Windows computer or Mac by using Chromium — the free open source version of Chrome OS. We looked at a build of CloudReady designed for virtual machines and found it was an excellent way to experience Chrome OS without buying any new hardware. It’s great to see another company using the resources the Chromium project makes available and doing such a good job with it.

Now Neverware has taken the next step and is offering more than just the same software you can get from Google. The CloudReady: Office 365 Education Edition.

Neverware thinks this combines the best of two worlds for students and IT managers.

While still Chrome OS at its core, this new version of CloudReady offers integration with OneDrive in place of Google Drive. When it’s time to create or edit documents, the user is directed to the online versions of Word, Excel, and the rest of the Microsoft Office 365 apps. Neverware says they worked with Microsoft to develop the Office 365 Education Edition of CloudReady and that this should enable “more efficient learning for students” while keeping the safe and simple reliability that comes with using Chrome OS.

While any Chrome-powered PC can access the online Office 365 suite, having this deep integration is something we haven’t seen before. Similarly, these Office 365 Edition computers can still access all of Google services through the web browser for a best of both worlds scenario.

Since this is geared towards the education sector, it has a very enticing price: $1 per student (or $15 per machine) per year. A lifetime license is just $59 per machine. Learn more at Neverware’s Office 365 Edition web page.

By Daniel Bader

Android 7.1.2 has now received its second beta prior to the public release in April.

Users of Nexus and Pixel phones running the Android 7.1.2 beta can now download the second beta in the series, which fixes some bugs from the initial version released in January while bringing eligible phones that latest security updates.

The update is already hitting Pixel devices, along with the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Pixel C and Nexus Player, and brings the devices up to build NPG47I. It was announced on Google+ by Google’s Orrin Hancock.

According to numerous reports, the Nexus 6P gains the popular “swipe-down-for-notifications” shortcut with the new version, which came to the Nexus 5X in a previous update.

How to enrol in the Android 7.1.2 beta

We expect the final public version of Android 7.1.2 to roll out to all eligible devices in early April.

Here's our best view yet of the Galaxy S8

Myandroid.com /
Thumbnail for 724005

By Daniel Bader

Front to back, this is the best view of the Galaxy S8 so far.

Well, this is it: without seeing a leaked hands-on video with the device, this is about as good a perspective as you’re going to get of the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Courtesy of Evan Blass, here is a series of Galaxy S8 renders (altered slightly by us) giving us a view of both the front and back of the upcoming flagship phone in two colors: black, and silver. It appears that the silver version has a black front face, along with metal sides that match the hue of the rear, while the all-black version maintains the “murdered out” aesthetic that debuted with the Galaxy Note 7 (and was subsequently released on the Galaxy S7).

The leak appears to be sourced from the same place as a previous one, but this time we have the matching rear view to round things out.

We also know, thanks to that previous leak, that the Galaxy S8 will likely debut in Europe at 799€, while the larger Galaxy S8+ will come in at 899€. You can expect a similar breakdown in the U.S.

8 Important Considerations When Switching To An MVNO

Myandroid.com /
Thumbnail for 724003

By Jerry Hildenbrand

Before you make the switch you need to think about a few things.

Having good cellular service has become an important thing for most people. We use our phones for everything from keeping in touch to keeping entertained when we have a few quiet moments. It’s pretty great that we have such powerful machines in our pockets and nobody is happy when their service lets them down. That’s why it’s worth taking your time and checking out a few things before you switch carriers.

This can be especially important when switching to a prepaid alternative carrier, also known as an MVNO. Because they aren’t the ones installing new facilities and building out the physical networks they operate on, they sometimes have to do things a little differently. These differences usually mean the service is cheaper every month, but it can also pose a few problems if you haven’t done your homework before you made the switch.

What is an alternative carrier?

That’s what we’re here for! Android phones and the service that powers them is our job and our hobby. We love to get in the mix and try things like switching away from the Big Four as much as we like writing about it. With that in mind, here are some things you need to think about when you’re ready to switch to an MVNO as your new carrier.

Picking the carrier that works where you need it to

This needs to be the first thing you look at. MVNOs have the luxury of using the networks the Big Four have rolled out, and we all know that not everyone has equal coverage on every carrier.

One of the best things you can do is talk to people you know and see what service they are using. If you hear a lot of praise for one particular carrier and complaints about another, you have a good starting point when it comes to picking the right MVNO. You can also check out the carrier coverage maps.

You need to make sure you know what you’re looking at here. Nobody is trying to deceive you but they all want their map to look as good as it can. On each of the coverage map sites, you’ll find some controls to filter the different types of coverage that are being shown. Make sure to have a look and compare the voice calling maps to the data connection maps, and make sure you are filtering to see the high-speed data coverage. And definitely make sure you’re not looking at “partner” or roaming maps, as many MVNO carriers don’t support that part of their parent carrier’s coverage.

Finally, be cautious if you need to use your phone in areas on the fringe …read more

Samsung's Galaxy S8 Korean teaser hints at a world of possibilities

Myandroid.com /

By Harish Jonnalagadda

Samsung starts hyping up the Galaxy S8 ahead of its official unveil on March 29.

Samsung has released a 15-second trailer for the Galaxy S8 in South Korea, showcasing little of the phone itself, a refreshing change in pace from the litany of leaks, rumors, and renders we’ve seen of the device in recent weeks.

The trailer starts off with a countdown to the number 8, and features a man walking to a door that has the same basic contours of the Galaxy S8. Behind the door lies outer space, replete with rocks whizzing around — a possible reference to the VR prowess of the upcoming flagship. The Galaxy S8 will be the first phone to be powered by Qualcomm’s 10nm Snapdragon 835, which has improved VR chops in the form of 15ms motion-to-photon latency and six-degrees-of-freedom for accurate motion tracking.

The trailer ends with the tagline (roughly translated), “Completion and new beginning,” which suggests that Samsung is entering a new era with the Galaxy S8. There’s certainly a lot at stake following the company’s recent woes, and with the phone slated to make its debut on March 29 in New York, we don’t have to wait long to find out what’s in store.

Nintendo and Cyanogen almost partnered for the Switch

Myandroid.com /
Thumbnail for 723998

By Russell Holly

Nintendo was flirting with Android again, but it looks like Cyanogen didn’t pick up.

You know that massively successful new console Nintendo can’t keep in stores? The one that smashed Nintendo’s own sales records and caused the company to dramatically ramp up production to meet demand? Apparently the OS for that console was almost based largely on Android, but Cyanogen’s Kirt McMaster put a stop to that according to his Twitter feed.

From a fun, nerdy perspective, it would have been kind of cool to know the Switch was based on Android. And, knowing some of the nice performance enhancement things Cyanogen projects had been capable of, it’s not impossible to imagine a Switch that was even more capable as a result of that custom OS. But that’s what it would have been, a custom closed down version of Android that didn’t look anything like the OS you see on tablets and phones. It would have been an entirely unique and locked down thing, which was very much the opposite of what Cyanogen was all about as a company.

Lots of folks in the Android bubble hear the name Cyanogen and immediately think of CEO Kirt McMaster very publicly saying a lot of very silly things about how successful the company was going to be. With the company dismantled and its core features picking up steam as the community-led LineageOS, you may find yourself wondering how he feels about passing up something like opportunity to work on the Nintendo Switch.

Hindsight is always 20/20, but it looks like he’d be a little more “open” to the idea if it were to come back around. Given the complete lack of reputation these days, that second chance is a little more than unlikely.

U.S. bans laptops and tablets on flights from eight Middle East countries

Myandroid.com /
Thumbnail for 723996

By Harish Jonnalagadda

Travelers from eight Muslim-majority countries are prohibited from carrying devices larger than a smartphone onboard U.S.-bound flights.

The Department of Homeland Security is rolling out new restrictions for carry-on items for U.S.-bound flights from eight Middle East countries. Electronic devices larger than a smartphone are prohibited from being carried onboard flights from nine airlines operating out of 10 airports in eight countries. People flying from these airports will have to stow laptops, e-readers, portable gaming devices, and cameras in their check-in baggage.

The DHS cited attempts in the last two years involving laptop bombs as the reason for the enhanced security measures:

The US government is concerned about terrorists’ ongoing interest in targeting commercial aviation, including transportation hubs over the past two years, as evidenced by the 2015 airliner downing in Egypt; the 2016 attempted airliner downing in Somalia; and the 2016 armed attacks against airports in Brussels and Istanbul.

Evaluated intelligence indicates that terrorist groups continue to target commercial aviation, to include smuggling explosive devices in various consumer items. Based on this trend, the Transportation Security Administration, in consultation with relevant Departments and Agencies, has determined it is prudent to enhance security, to include airport security procedures for passengers at certain last point of departure airports to the United States.

These are the airports where the new restrictions will be enforced:

  • Queen Alia International, Amman, Jordan
  • Cairo International Airport, Egypt
  • Ataturk Airport, Istanbul, Turkey
  • King Abdulaziz International, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
  • King Khalid International, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
  • Kuwait International Airport
  • Mohammed V International, Casablanca, Morocco
  • Hamad International, Doha, Qatar
  • Dubai International, United Arab Emirates
  • Abu Dhabi International, United Arab Emirates

The ban doesn’t affect any U.S.-based carriers as they do not have direct flights from the airports mentioned above. It does, however, affect these airlines:

  • Royal Jordanian
  • Egypt Air
  • Turkish Airlines
  • Saudi Arabian Airlines
  • Kuwait Airways
  • Royal Air Maroc
  • Qatar Airways
  • Emirates
  • Etihad Airways

The airlines have until Friday to comply with the new restrictions, failing which they risk losing their operator license in the U.S. As of now, there’s no end date to the restrictions, with the DHS stating that they will be in place until the “threat changes.”

Google makes searching on Android better with new Shortcuts feature

Myandroid.com /
Thumbnail for 723994

By Daniel Bader

Google has introduced yet another way to search on Android.

There is no shortage of ways to find things on an Android device. If you’ve bought a phone in the last couple of years, it’s more than likely you have a Google search bar on your main homescreen — Google requires it as part of its certification process — and some phones, including its Nexus and Pixel line, have the Artist Formerly Known As Google Now, now known merely as the Feed, to the left of the main homescreen.

Well, Google still thinks searching for specific topics is too difficult, because it’s introducing a new Shortcuts menu within the Feed that’s meant to simplify the process of getting in-depth information.

Getting up-to-the-minute info is as easy as a single tap. With shortcuts right on the home screen, you now have access to in-depth experiences across sports, eat & drink, entertainment and weather. Need to know whether to bring a raincoat tomorrow? Want the score to last night’s basketball game? Looking for what’s on TV tonight or who’s nominated for best supporting actress? Shortcuts on Google will get you there.

Android users will find dozens of other useful shortcuts too—translate, nearby attractions, flights, hotels, internet speed test, currency converter, and more. Plus, if you’re looking for fun, there are shortcuts like tic-tac-toe, roll a die, animal sounds, solitaire, and always a Google favorite: I’m feeling curious.

What’s interesting about this is that Shortcuts presumably makes it easier to get sports scores, movie times and other pieces of information people often search for. But it’s also putting web apps like Google Translate and Google Trips — experiences that are available as native apps on Android — front and center in the experience.

The feature is rolling out first to Android, iOS and mobile web users U.S., with more countries expected to come in the next few months.

What do you think of Shortcuts? Is it useful, or just another set of icons cluttering up the Feed?
