04/24, 9:07am

Users of Google Maps may find an odd image if they search Pakistan. Team Android reports someone has inserted an image of the Android mascot urinating on the Apple Logo. While it is unlikely to be an addition by a Google employee, it is possible that the image was added as part of Map Maker, a system that allows users to submit edits to the map for inclusion into the main Google Maps service, with the insulting image possibly overlooked during moderation.

Review: Linksys WRT1200AC Dual-Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router

04/23, 12:33am

Once upon a time, a brand-new Linksys router showed up on our doorstep. So we gathered some network-minded friends together, and hooked it up to the Internet. We ran it through its automatic set up, and downloaded a few iOS and Android apps that would allow us to do cool stuff like stream media from an external drive plugged into the router to our mobile devices or a Chromecast. We fiddled, poked, and prodded so we could report back. Over all, we had a good experience setting up and using the brand new model from Linksys, but it wasn't without its challenges.

Review: Rapoo A300 Mini NFC Speaker with Bluetooth 4.0

04/22, 10:45am

The Rapoo Bluetooth Mini NFC Speaker is a little metallic box about the size of a baseball. In spite of its small size, we were very pleased with the volume and quality of the sound it produced. The documentation made some claims of fancy features we weren't able to substantiate, but the overall performance of the speaker, compared to other portable Bluetooth speakers, was pretty swell in our opinion. Check out our review!
