Yesterday, Ring announced it would start requiring two-factor authentication for all user accounts effective immediately. And while that’s a great start, it’s not enough. The company can and should do more. The truth is, it’s playing catchup to another security camera company: Nest. If you have to pick, you should trust Nest before Ring, and here’s why.
If you’re wondering how Samsung makes the Galaxy Z Flip and what it would take to repair it, iFixit has your back. The crew at iFixit tore down a Z Flip and found that Samsung delivered in some areas and not in others.
Game development is difficult. Most modern-day AAA games require hundreds of developers working for years (sometimes close to a decade) on a single project. Sometimes though, it’s the little independent games we love the most. When a few people set out to make a great game with no backing, it makes for a great success story. But SkyRider, though a great game, is not a success story. And you should play it anyway.
Amazon is running another set of Anker deals today, and if you pay close attention, some of the discounts are worth your time. Top of the list is the Anker Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger, followed by a USB-C to Lightning Cable, and two power strips offered at their lower prices ever. But you can skip the other deals.
Stadia, Google’s game streaming service, is closer to a beta than a full-fledged product. That’s evident in its missing features and narrow support for devices. Despite suggesting an “any device anywhere” capability, you could only play on one phone—Google’s Pixel. But starting February 20th, that’s changing. Hopefully, you own a Samsung phone, though.
It’s time to empty out the “Microsoft Office” folder on your phone. The new unified Office app, which combines Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Sticky Notes into a neat little package, is now available for all Android phones.
We’ve already suggested that maybe you shouldn’t buy the Galaxy Z Flip yet, and that advice was quickly vindicated. But perhaps we should go ahead and broaden that statement to, “maybe you shouldn’t buy any foldable phone yet.” The folks over at Input bought a Motorola Razr just over a week ago, and now it’s peeling apart.
Recently, Ring security cameras have been in the news for all the wrong reasons. It seems many people were reusing compromised passwords, allowing bad actors to log in and watch or even harass users. Today, Ring announced it’s making two-factor authentication (2FA) mandatory for all users on every login, and it’s pausing third-party analytics.
