Time to get organized!

Is this deal for me?

The Emarth 4-pack cable management sleeve is down to $10.94 with code ISZ8L4YN on Amazon. This is $15 without the code, which has been its regular street price since July.

What separates this from other cable management systems, like this one from Monoprice, are the multiple entry and exit holes that allow you create a sort of do-it-yourself entry point where ever you need it.

Features include:

  • This cable management is made of thick high density neoprene. Zip-up design makes it easier to manage the cluttered cable tube. Ten piece cable ties can be used to tie up computer cables, TV cords, etc
  • Every cable wire organizer has one buckle at both ends. Join multiple sleeves together to extend their length. Its suitable for all cable bundling solutions in your home/office
  • Multiple entry/exit holes enable cables to entry/exit. The hole can be cut with scissors to fit or just create DIY holes to allow a breakout where required
  • The desk cable management is 19.7-inches long and 3.7-inches wide and comes in four packs. Capable of bundling multiple cables without tearing while protecting cords from foot traffic & chewing pets
  • You will get four piece cables management sleeves & 10 piece cable ties

The sleeve comes with a one-year warranty.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? – This is a really low price on this cable management system, and it’ll help make your office look a little nicer.
  • Things to know before you buy! – Don’t be afraid to get a little organized! I know it’s a big step for most of us.

Happy thrifting!

Relax. There’s a reason no one had anything bad to say about this display in their initial hands on articles.

Google’s Nexus phones got a lot of undeserved praise in their time. Go back and look at a lot of those reviews, and you’ll see a lot of talk about how great those phones were “for the price” with a lot of glaring flaws overlooked. Good news, times have changed! Google’s phones are priced like premium phones now, and they deserve to be critiqued as such. If you read Pixel 2 XL reviews all over the web, one thing you’ll see with the quality reviewers out there is an especially critical tone taken with the display.

But in many cases, I think people are going a little too far. While this is absolutely not the best display you can get on a phone today, it’s a damn good display and you’re more than likely going to love it in the context of the entire phone.

Non-issues everywhere

Here’s a quick list of the complaints you’ll find with the Pixel 2 XL display if you go looking around the web:

  • Color Shift: If you have a flat white background, say on a Google Search results page, you’ll notice a subtle shift from white to blue to red when you rotate the phone in your hand. This means from some angles it will look a little funny, but you’re never going to perceive this shift while holding the phone in your hand straight-on. This isn’t unique to the Pixel 2 XL; unsurprisingly, the LG V30 has the exact same “issue” when looking at the display from various angles.

  • Grainy/Muddy colors: If you have the display brightness down as low as it can go, flat color spaces will have some grain to them. It makes flat white backgrounds look like they have a texture. You have to be really looking to see this, and with the screen brightness above 30%, I’ve yet to see this grain. This may be something that bothers you if you’re looking for it. I can count the number of times I have set my phone to minimum brightness on one hand and still have three fingers left to do something else, so it’s never a thing I’m going to notice, much less care about.

  • Washed out colors: Surprise! If you use a Galaxy S8 or Note 8 with factory settings, every display that isn’t tuned to be extra saturated looks a little on the dull side. This has nothing to do with a “defect” in the Pixel 2 XL display, and everything to do with some folks preferring more saturated displays and setting two phones side-by-side. This couldn’t be any less of an issue. Google calibrated this display to reproduce 100% of the DCI-P3 color space, and if you go in and turn off Samsung’s display “improvements” you can get the exact same color gamut.

All caught up now? Great. Just so we’re clear, some of these things are actual, legitimate flaws in the display panel. They are things that are really, actually part of the experience of using the Pixel 2 XL. But none of them are constant concerns that will have you screaming about how Google could have let you down like this as you go to actually use this phone. It’s a solid display for just about everything, including virtual reality and seeing in direct sunlight.

What’s the actual ‘problem’ here?

Basically, LG’s P-OLED displays are, conservatively, about one generation behind what Samsung is doing with its Super AMOLED displays right now. That’s not surprising: Samsung has been a leader in the display world for several years now, just look at anything it’s made since about the Galaxy S5. There’s a reasonable argument to be made for wanting an $849 phone to have the best of everything, and right now that means it would have to have a Samsung display.

As a consumer, you should absolutely be critical of the things you spend money on.

But there’s a lot more to any phone than its display. The Pixel 2 XL is amazingly fast, packs a pair of cameras that delight with every press of the shutter, and features Google brains under the hood that often feel like witchcraft. On one hand, who wouldn’t want a phone where every single line in the spec sheet is the absolute best? On the other hand, this is reality and there are always trade-offs. With the Pixel 2 XL, that trade-off is the display isn’t completely flawless.

And really, that last bit is super important. These “flaws” are, at their worst, non-issues for most people. If I turn the brightness on this phone down to the minimum and hand it to 10 random people to ask them what they think of the display, the answer will be “wow, that’s a nice phone” nine out of 10 times. I know, because I did exactly that. (I was also wearing a lab coat at the time, so you know it was all totally legit.)

As a consumer, you should absolutely be critical of the things you spend money on. Google is asking you to spend $850, and telling you this thing you should buy is better than the other $750-$950 things available today. In my opinion, Google is absolutely right — and if you like large phones and the Google experience, you’re going to love the Pixel 2 XL. If you’re on the fence, go into a store and test it for yourself. Whatever your buying decision, you’ll see for yourself this display is a thoroughly enjoyable part of an incredible phone.

Alongside the Galaxy S8/S8+, Samsung also introduced DeX to the world this past February. DeX is Samsung’s vision for the future of desktop computing, and while it still has a way to go before it’s truly useful or practical for everyone, Linux on Galaxy is a new app that Samsung hopes will make DeX more appealing to developers.

Samsung announced Linux on Galaxy at its developer conference on October 18, and although the app is still in a trial phase, it already sounds pretty impressive.

Linux on Galaxy is a mobile app you’ll be able to download to your Samsung Galaxy device, and it’ll enable developers to code in their preferred Linux distribution while on the go. So, if you need to test a function for a bit of software that you’re working on and can’t do it within Android, Linux on Galaxy will allow you to run that program in an entirely native Linux operating system.

Linux on Galaxy lets you take Linux development with you wherever you go.

Developing software on a 6-inch screen isn’t something that most people would prefer, but then again, that really isn’t what Samsung is pushing here. By docking your Galaxy device into a DeX dock, you’ll be able to code away on a larger display like you would with any PC. However, when it’s time to head out of the house, you can pop your phone out of the dock and take your programs (and a full Linux OS) with you wherever you go.

A lot of our readers likely won’t ever touch Linux on Galaxy when it’s eventually released, but that’s okay. This is a sign that Samsung is trying to make DeX as accessible to as many different kinds of people as it can, and while Linux on Galaxy won’t revolutionize DeX on its own, apps like this are big steps in the right direction.

With that said, if you are a developer and are interested in using Galaxy on Linux as soon as possible, you can sign up for notifications about it here.

Samsung announced Bixby 2.0 at its annual developer conference, and there’s a lot to talk about.

Last week, a report surfaced with the claim that Samsung would be announcing a brand new version of Bixby on October 18 at its Samsung Developer Conference. October 18 is upon us, and wouldn’t you believe it, we’ve got some Bixby news to talk about.

Samsung used its developer conference to formally announce Bixby 2.0, and while the core Bixby experience will remain the same for those using the assistant on the Galaxy S8, Note 8, etc., there are some big under-the-hood changes that aim to make Bixby even smarter and more powerful than it currently is.

The first big update has to do with the fact that Samsung is opening up the Bixby SDK to third parties. Samsung will be using a private beta program to initially release the SDK to select developers, and over time, the company’s hope is to allow anyone to create new skills and services for its AI.

Per Samsung’s Vice President and Head of Service Intelligence of Mobile Communications, Eui-Suk Chung:

We know Samsung cannot deliver on this paradigm shift by ourselves – it can only happen if we all, across all industries, work together, in partnership. With Bixby 2.0, the doors will be wide open for developers to choose and model how users interact with Bixby in their services across all application domains e.g., sports, food, entertainment, or travel – the opportunities are truly endless.

This is easily the biggest change to Bixby, but that’s not all that Samsung announced. Bixby 2.0 will bring the assistant to other connected devices (including refrigerators, TVs, speakers, etc.) and use improved language capabilities to sound more natural and perform more complex tasks. With this update, Samsung says that Bixby will be able to “really get to know and understand not only who you are, but who members of your family are, and tailor its response and actions appropriately.”

Bixby didn’t have the smoothest launch here in the States, and while it will probably take some time for the changes in 2.0 to have a noticeable impact on most people’s day-to-day use, we’re still excited to see Samsung double-down on the platform. Bixby has a lot of room to grow, but what we’re seeing here is encouraging.

Samsung Bixby: Everything you need to know!

Best Android Phones of 2017

18 October 2017

Best overall

Google Pixel 2

See at Verizon
See at Best Buy
See at Google Store

Google’s new Pixel 2 gives you sleek and solid hardware, all of the requisite specs inside and runs simple and intuitive software at a breakneck pace. The hardware surely isn’t flashy, but it’s beautiful and efficient — and it’s now IP67 water-resistant like we expect.

The software features and Google’s apps aren’t numerous, but they’re delightfully useful without being bothersome. And with three years of guaranteed updates, you don’t have to worry about the future.

The Pixel 2 has once again set the standard for Android cameras as well, with Google’s “HDR+” processing buoyed by new camera hardware and even better processing. Photos are accurate with just a little extra punch of color, and can manage tough scenes with little issue. And with Android 8.1, a new “Pixel Visual Core” chipset will be enabled to give you even better photos, which is tantalizing.

Bottom line: The best Android experience comes straight from Google with the Pixel 2. Great hardware and amazing software support an amazing camera that’s only getting better.

One more thing: For a larger (but arguably worse) screen and bigger battery, pony up an extra $200 for the Google Pixel 2 XL. The rest of the experience remains unchanged.

Why the Google Pixel 2 is the best

If you want the best possible Android experience, you go straight to the source: Google. The company has gotten serious about user experience and interface design, and it really shows with Android 8.0 Oreo on the Pixel 2 and 2 XL. Everything is blazing fast, smooth, consistent and intuitive throughout the interface. It’s a core competency that separates the Pixel 2 from the competition, and it’s something that any smartphone user can appreciate.

Google has gotten really good at user experience and interface design.

And it’s not just software customization that makes it happen — Google has included a Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM and 64GB (optionally, 128GB) of storage to make sure your phone has plenty of room to run. A 2700mAh battery seems small (well, normally, it is), but it manages to get you a full day of use without worry. The little body also packs front-facing stereo speakers, which are a rarity in 2017. Further to that point, Google has sourced a quality 5-inch 1080p panel that looks good at the $649 price point.

Oh, yes, it’s just 5 inches. Despite its big top and bottom bezels, the Pixel 2 is quite comfortable to hold and reach to all four corners of the screen without the help of a second hand. The Pixel 2 XL’s 6-inch display makes it a match-up for the Galaxy S8+ in terms of size — and in more awkward one-handed use. (It also has an arguably worse display, despite being a QHD+ resolution OLED screen.)

The Pixel 2 doesn’t focus on the number of features, it focuses on the impact of each one.

If there’s one knock on the Pixel 2, it’s that it doesn’t have the sheer volume of features in its hardware or software that some of the competition does. It doesn’t have a headphone jack, wireless charging or an SD card slot; and if you’re used to having a bunch of specialized software features on your Samsung, LG or Huawei phone you won’t find them here.

But for most people, those are relatively small prices to pay to get a daily experience of using a phone that’s fast, intuitive, smart and filled with a core set of features that can actually wow you. That’s what you get from the Pixel 2.

Best for features

Samsung Galaxy S8

See at Verizon
See at AT&T
See at T-Mobile
See at Sprint
See at Best Buy

The Galaxy S8 has slick hardware with tiny bezels that let it have a big screen in a small body, but inside it still offers everything you want: a high-end processor, lots of storage, an SD card slot, full waterproofing and a top-end camera.

Though its software can be a little overwhelming, you can’t argue that Samsung continues to pack in hundreds of features to a single phone, making sure there’s something in here for everyone’s needs. Samsung continues to take this approach of offering more more more with just a few compromises — and it continues to work.

Bottom line: The Galaxy S8 gives you piles of features in a beautiful body, and is a great choice for a wide range of potential buyers.

One more thing: You should consider the option of paying a little extra and get the larger Galaxy S8+ for a bit more screen and battery life.

Best with a huge screen

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

See at Verizon
See at AT&T
See at T-Mobile
See at Sprint
See at Best Buy
See at Amazon

Take everything that makes the Galaxy S8 great, and scale it up — that’s what also makes the Galaxy Note 8 compelling. A very familiar glass-and-metal body is wrapped around a larger 6.3-inch display, but a panel that’s even better in terms of brightness and colors.

For this top-dollar phone you’ll find top-end specs, great performance and super-capable software. Plus a new dual camera setup that offers you 2X zooming without losing resolution and a new “Live Focus” mode that mimics the background blur of a professional camera. None of the camera changes come at a cost of reduced primary camera quality, either.

Then you get the S Pen, of course, offering fine input, drawing abilities and new productivity tricks you simply can’t get from any other phone out there. The stylus isn’t for everyone, but you’ll find plenty of people who swear by its capabilities.

Bottom line: For the biggest, most powerful and most capable phone Samsung makes, look no further.

One more thing: Be ready to spend the big bucks — the Note 8 is far and away Samsung’s most expensive phone ever at nearly $1000.

Best mainstream alternative

LG V30

See at AT&T
See at Verizon
See at Sprint
See at T-Mobile

LG’s V series has traditionally been a big and brawny phone, but in 2017 the V30 is just a great overall device that has handily taken over from the G6 launched earlier this year. It stuck with a metal-and-glass build, but slimmed down the sides and integrated subtle curves to make it rather easy to hold despite a 6-inch 18:9 display on the front.

Internally you get top-notch specs you’d expect from any flagship, and around back LG continues to impress with a fantastic pair of cameras. The standard shooter does really well despite its small pixels, and the secondary wide-angle camera is the best implementation LG has ever made. It offers an extremely unique perspective you just don’t see anywhere else.

LG’s software is capable and smooth, if still a bit clunky and uncoordinated in a few areas — but that can still be said about most phones nowadays.

Bottom line: LG does all of the basics amazingly well, and accents it with a nice body and super-capable pair of cameras.

One more thing: The V30 isn’t yet widely available in Western markets, but we expect it to hit store shelves early in October.

Best for keyboard

BlackBerry KEYone

See at Amazon
See at BlackBerry

The market for phones with a physical keyboard may not be as large as it once was, but BlackBerry Mobile’s KEYone has reinvigorated the market. Not only does it offer a best-in-class efficiency through its ample 3505mAh battery and power-sipping Snapdragon 625 chip, but its keyboard feels like it’s straight out of the old BlackBerry Bold — in a good way.

Bottom line: BlackBerry is back with a phone that feels just as comfortable in the Android world as it did in the BB10 world.

One more thing: The KEYone has a pretty great camera that’s underappreciated in the marketplace.

Conclusion

The Pixel 2 doesn’t have as many features as some other phones, but the entire experience of using the phone, from top to bottom, is ahead of the competition. Just about anyone can appreciate what Google offers in this phone, or its larger sibling the Pixel 2 XL.

Update, October 2017: The Google Pixel 2 (and 2 XL) has taken our top spot, pushing the Galaxy S8 (and S8+) down one slot to the best phone for those who want tons of features. The U11 has made way, as its “simplicity” claim on the list has been supplanted by the Pixel 2 as well.

Best adult apps for Android

17 October 2017

In an ocean of adult apps done poorly, these rise to the top.

If you’re reading this, chances are you have an awesome pocket computer running Android at your disposal. Today’s Android phones and tablets can pretty much do anything, and that includes things of an adult nature. We want to help you find and see that content the best way possible.

We’re not here to condone or condemn anyone or anything — and by all means let’s keep things legal — but we feel that adults using their Androids to peruse adult content is just fine and dandy. We bet a good number of you guys and gals feel the same way.

If you don’t agree, that’s cool, too. We also are firm believers in the “live and let live” philosophy, and fully respect your opinion and support your right to have it. We also advise you to not click through the break if you think you might be offended. We love you regardless.

Don’t worry, we’re not trying to push any boundaries or limits (too terribly far), we just want to share a list of the best ways to find and browse adult content on Android. And do it in an adult way.

Namaste my friend. Namaste.


There are countless ways to see adult content on your Android out there, covering a broad range of subject matter. This is our list of the best of the best, and ones we feel confident to recommend. Be sure to tell us in the comments if you know another we should have a look at. Sorting through apps is a tough job, and we always love hearing input about the great stuff we need to check out.

Daydream VR

You know plenty of people are interested in Virtual Reality adult entertainment. A new way to interact with video or an app, VR lends itself to the adult world perfectly.

Daydream is already proving to be one of the best ways to experience adult VR and the platform is only going to keep growing. Immersing yourself into a VR world is a step above just watching it play. Daydream helps you get there.

PornHub

The current king of adult videos for Android. And probably every other platform.

PornHub is a safe way to see adult videos and pictures from any device, and they have a pretty good app for Android. Looking at porn online can be a messy affair, with malicious trackers and ads littering just about every site. PornHub is different. Yes, they still make money from ads — and we don’t hold that against them at all — but you won’t find the truly dangerous stuff that can cause damage to your phone there. And with their app, there are no ads at all.

The app also includes PornHub’s community features, uses a simple and discreet icon and has password locking for the video player. It’s basically everything you would want in an app designed to look at porn — it’s safe, it’s private, and it’s free. Fire up your browser and download PornHub from the link below.

MiKandi

If you’re looking for a bit of everything sexy, kinky or naughty, MiKandi is where you’ll want to start. Simply put, it’s the best place to get curated adult theme applications for Android. Whether you want something silly that involves jiggling boobs, or want to see some gritty adult movie action, MiKandi has you covered.

MiKandi is its own app store and uses its own virtual currency system. You’ll find plenty of things that are free and every taste is covered. You will need to register with MiKandi to download and install apps, but there’s really no reason not to. Millions of others have, and they don’t spam you or share your details. It’s worth it to know that you’re installing apps that have been weeded through and the malware and garbage were thrown out.

To install the free MiKandi store, fire up the browser on your phone and here:

Download: MiKandi (free)

Weed Maps

Cannabis is now legal for medical or recreational use in over half the United States, including Washington, D.C. An important part of cannabis legalization is to treat it properly and support legal vendors who aren’t selling a dime-bag to your kids. Google can help you here, so can word of mouth, but like most everything else there’s an app for that!

We do not endorse marijuana use where it is not legal. Know your laws and follow them accordingly.

That said, Weed Maps is wonderfully done, and will help you locate what you’re looking for in the places where it’s legal to sell it. You won’t find anything about Craigslist dealers or shady online operations here.

Weed Maps not only helps you find where to buy marijuana, it also tells you about discounts, exclusive offers, and daily deals. Add in a section for reviews and a social network, and you have the makings of a great app for patients and connoisseurs alike.

Download: Weed Maps Marijuana Strains (free)

Tumblr

Tumblr is a great place to find blogs abut every subject you can imagine. Some are pretty amateurish, some much more professional, but the beauty of it all is having everything in one place — and in one app. When it comes to adult content, nothing changes.

You’ll find everything at Tumblr. From the mostly tame to the extreme and graphic. From pros and amateurs alike. Whether you’re looking for boys, girls or folks who don’t identify with either (and no matter what you would like to see them doing) Tumblr will fix you up, for free.

Download: Tumblr (free)

Mixology

If you’re going to have a drink or two, remember a few important things. First of all, you need to be a responsible adult. We don’t condone or endorse underage drinking, nor do we want anyone to place themselves or anyone in danger after having a few drinks. The next important thing is to learn to make a good drink.

That’s where Mixology comes in. Thousands of recipes for just about any flavor of adult beverage are included, and sorting through them is dead simple. Browse by category, or tell the app what you have on hand and you’ll find just the right recipe for a perfect cocktail. Or get adventurous and click that random tab — you might find something new. You can also find your local liquor store and learn a bit about just how to use common bartending tools to make that perfect drink.

The app is free, and if you’re serious about mixing up those drinks a paid version is available.

Download: Mixology Drink Recipes (free)

Literotica

If you’re a fan of erotic fiction, Literotica is for you. While you won’t find Hemingway here, you will find erotic stories to fit any and every taste. Even some tastes you might not have even known existed.

While the interface is dated and pretty bland, the app is quick and offers the right settings for reading. You have settings for fonts and screen brightness, as well as a dark mode for some after-hours reading. The app even has an immersive mode for phones with on-screen buttons. Literotica is free and filled to the brim with content.

Download: Literotica.com (free)

BaconReader

While Reddit is plenty popular with folks of all ages, there are parts that are absolutely NSFW and filled with content of an adult nature. We love an open and free Internet, so we’re glad they are there. And we want you to be able to browse them the best way possible. Of course, the best way to see the not-so-kid-friendly content is also the best way to see all of what Reddit has to offer.

That’s BaconReader. Subreddit grouping, filtering by domain and keywords, image uploading should you want to contribute and a great slideshow mode (if you just want to look) make BaconReader the best and most popular way to read Reddit — all of Reddit.

BaconReader is free and also looks great on your tablet!

The app will be available in a few days.

Android Auto is slowly but surely expanding to more hardware and gaining additional software support, and since its inception, one of the strong suits for the platform has been its use for listening to music. Plex has just announced that it’ll soon be rolling out its own Android Auto app, and from what we’ve seen so far, it looks really nice.

Plex can be used for storing videos and music files, and while it should probably go without saying, you won’t be able to watch any of your movies or TV shows using the Android Auto app. However, you will be able to access all of the songs that you have stored on your Plex account.

Android Auto can be used on dashboard units and through an app on your phone, and Plex has designed unique interfaces for both options that give you large, easy-to-see controls so that you can safely handle your music playback while behind the wheel. You can browse through your music by you’re created playlists, songs you’ve recently played/added, and by artists. And, as you’d expect, there are controls for pausing a song and skipping to the next track once you’ve selected a title to listen to.

Plex’s Android Auto app will be rolling out in the coming days.
