Make it stop! CrackBerry Kevin busts a Galaxy S8 on the way to KEYone durability redemption

The BlackBerry KEYone is stronger than you think.

The BlackBerry KEYone has been through the wringer over the past week or so, with claims that its screen, bereft of sufficient adhesive, easily detaches from the body with only a small amount of force. Popular YouTube channel JerryRigEverything entered the phone into its oh-so-sad Hall of Shame after Zack was easily able to break the phone with his bare hands. A small number of people had already reported the screen detaching through normal everyday use.

Shortly afterwards, BlackBerry Mobile released a statement saying it was looking into the problem — which has only affected a handful of units — and may alter the manufacturing process to include additional adhesive in future units.

Still, CrackBerry Kevin took the assertion that the KEYone was weak as a challenge, pitting the phone against the Galaxy S8+ and iPhone 7 Plus in a number of durability challenges. I won’t spoil the surprise, but suffice it to say the KEYone did better than even I expected.

Staying stationary with MrMobile: Home is where the tech is

“MrMobile” isn’t just a name; it’s a lifestyle. That means I normally only cover technology that takes you from your doorstep to distant destinations. But there’s an awful lot of interesting tech made for the home that’s cropped up over the past year that you’ve been asking about … and frankly, I don’t know much about any of it! So I hopped a plane to Pensacola Florida to meet up with someone who does.

Join me as Modern Dad teaches us all about the coolest home tech of 2017, from Amazon Alexa to Google Home to something called “netatmo.”

After the video, be sure to subscribe to Modern Dad on YouTube – because before you know it I’ll be back on the road, and you’re gonna wanna stay on top of all the stuff Modern Dad is filling his house with.

You can back up and sync everything to your Google account starting June 28

You’re already backing up apps and documents with Google Drive, so why not backup everything else, too?

Beginning June 28, you’ll be able to back up all of your files and folders from a Mac or PC to your Google Drive. It’s called, very simply, Backup and Sync, and once installed, it will help you keep things in check even when you’re not checking them.

From the official blog post:

On June 28th, 2017, we will launch Backup and Sync from Google, a tool intended to help everyday users back up files and photos from their computers, so they’re safe and accessible from anywhere. Backup and Sync is the latest version of Google Drive for Mac/PC, which is now integrated with the Google Photos desktop uploader. As such, it will respect any current Drive for Mac/PC settings in the Admin console.

Since its inception, Google Drive has required that you manually sync any data stored on your main computer, or move files and folders so that they’re saved directly to the cloud account. But once the new app goes live, you’ll be able to choose which files and folders to stay synced. It’ll also be integrated with the current Google Photos Backup tool for Mac and PC.

On the mobile side, this means you’ll have access to those files and folders from any tablet or smartphone that has access to Google Drive. It also means you won’t have to two different desktop apps installed to keep Photos and Drive synced at the same time.

Google suggests that if you’re planning to use the backup feature for your work-related G Suite account, you should use the Drive File System instead because it allows for larger data uploads. Also, not all G Suite users will automatically be upgraded to the ability — managers of the G Suite account will need to turn on the option for employees to utilize the backup feature for them to get access to Backup and Sync.

Deal: Switching to Sprint gets you free unlimited for a year!

This Sprint deal seems too good to be true, but it isn’t.

We often tease Sprint for its desperate attempts at getting customers on other networks to switch over, but this latest deal is a doozy, and well worth investigating.

http://ift.tt/2spAUR0

Until June 30, 2017, customers on T-Mobile, AT&T, or (especially) Verizon get up to five lines of free unlimited service by switching over to Sprint. There are a few caveats, which we’ll get to in a moment, but as long as you’re a new Sprint customer, the deal is very enticing. The service is not some limited version of Sprint’s regular unlimited plan, either: up to five lines get Sprint’s full unlimited package, which includes calls, texts and up to 23GB of high-speed 4G LTE (and unlimited data at slower speeds after that) just by switching over.

Sprint claims that customers bringing five lines over can save over $2000 in the first year if switching from Verizon.

Now here are the caveats:

  • The offer is open to new customers only.
  • After the first year, which technically ends July 31, 2018, service will cost $60 for the first line, $40 for the second, and $30 for each subsequent one.
  • The offer is only open to customers bringing their own unlocked, eligible phones.
    • These include devices like the Google Pixel, Nexus 6P, Moto G5 Plus, iPhone 7, and Galaxy S8. Check out the full list.
  • You will have to buy SIM cards through Sprint for $2.99 each and activate them on the company’s online portal.

Along with the unlimited calls, text and data, users get 10GB of hotspot data per line and HD video streaming at 1080p.

So while there are a few hoops to jump through, it’s definitely worth pursuing for the insane level of savings. If Sprint has even decent LTE service in your area, you can’t beat this kind of deal.
