CES is wrapping up (I left Thursday afternoon), so we figured it would be a good time to sit down and give all of you an easy place to find a bunch of the stuff announced that are related to Android. This post will focus on all of the television sets that will come with Android TV installed. I got see a few of them on the show floor, but they weren't all that exciting from a brief glance standpoint — we've all seen TVs and most of us know what Android TV looks like by now. Android TV itself is seeing a bit of resurgence. Not only are more partners hopping on board, but Google claims that more users have joined the fold. Oreo is bringing some changes to the platform, especially when it comes to the home screen. Video previews will play when the app is in focus, e.g. the YouTube suggestion will start rolling like it does on the desktop website. You can check more information in this blog post. For now, let's dive in. Haier Our first entry in this list, Haier is only here … [Read more...] about CES 2018 wrap-up: More Android TVs than you can shake a remote at

Like many people on welfare, single mother Judy Williams has had her share of troubles. There's the marriage that fell apart, the time she says she was stricken with Lyme disease, and her struggle to make a living selling goods at National Rifle Association events. "Everything literally went to hell in a handbasket," she says. Until, that is, she started selling online through auction-cum-flea-market eBay.com. Now Williams, 52, says she's bringing home an extra $5 to $100 per day, a boon for someone who lived on food stamps for three years. "It means I'm off public assistance," she says. And she's not alone. There's been a surge of selling on eBay and other Web sites for auctioning off personal items. And that, in turn, has created a new global market in everyday paraphernalia that's serving up extra cash and shopping choices to welfare moms, socialites, librarians and work-at-home entrepreneurs around the world. "It's really changed my lifestyle," says work-at-home mom Patricia … [Read more...] about Online auction sites bring flea markets to Web
Microsoft's conference dance card is starting to fill in for 2014. While the Softies aren't expectedto have much of a presence -- beyond a supporting one in a few meeting rooms -- at CES next week, they'll still be there. Microsoft officials also will be at a few other major non-Microsoft-run shows, like NRF, Mobile World Congress and the Game Developers Conference in the coming year. But Microsoft's main event push in 2014, as it was in 2013, is expected to be at Microsoft-sponsored events, like Convergence, Build, TechEd and WPC. Microsoft also will likely schedule and host some additional product-specific events along the line, as it did last year.

What do we do when gasoline hasn't cost more than $3 a gallon since 2014, and, by AAA's count, Americans have saved $20 billion on gasoline so far this year? One thing's for sure: We're burning rubber—a lot of it. Americans drove a record 3.15 trillion miles in 2015 (as many as 500 round trips from Earth to Pluto, for a sense of scale). Domestic attractions that depend on the help of four wheels and interstate highways are cashing in. Ironically, it's coming at a time when companies are sinking big investments into augmented-reality projects and ride-sharing partnerships, and automakers are advancing technology in fuel efficiency and alternative-fuel vehicles faster than ever before. The2017 Prius Prime¹, for example, can go more than an EPA-estimated 640 miles on a full charge and full tank. If 2015, the most heavily traveled year in history, is any indication of what the future of driving looks like, options like the Prius Prime, Toyota's most advanced hybrid available … [Read more...] about 9 U.S. Destinations Where Americans Are Tourists Again
Embedded in the heel of his shoe was an early example of the Internet of Things -- but Andrew Duncan didn't know it at the time."My girlfriend was able to watch me on the computer screen as I did a five-mile walk," recalls Duncan, a Los Angeles technology consultant, of his participation in an Alzheimer's fund-raising walk in November of 2010.
