Joe Biden at the gates of the White House

Amazon Echo 2020 Review: The World’s Smartest Magic Eight Ball

The 2020 Amazon Echo is an enigma. It basically includes last year's feature set. Echo Plus Packed in a spherical body and priced at $ 129 from the standard Echo. In fact, Amazon also revamped the Echo Dot in the same way, but at least it still sells the old Dot and Dot with disk-shaped clock for people who are not looking for a large smart speaker. There is still no denying that the new Echo is a great smart speaker. That said, the unique design requires more attention than last year's Echo, which is a step back in my opinion, especially after the company got so close to perfection with the Echo Dot with Clock. "Magic eight ball, is that a good design?" Before I get into the technical side of things, I'll tackle the new design. As you may have already guessed, I don't like it. I un...

Chrome extension reverts new Google icons to their previous appearance

If you hate new Google icons and you are a Google Chrome user, now you can revert some to their old look. A Chrome extension, appropriately named 'Restore Old Google Icons' and created by product designer Claudio Postinghel, takes the new Google colored icons that look the same and changes them on the Chrome tabs to look like the version previous. So far it only works with Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Meet. However, this should add enough variety to help you not confuse all of your tabs. That's all there is to this extension. It changes the look of the tab logos, so it only helps people who need to open a lot of Google-related tabs frequently. Hopefully Google will learn from this and redesign its new icons one more time so ...

The numbers of COVID-19 cases in the New York City give reasons to Mayor Bill de Blasio to have some concern about the upward trend. The Mayor said this Wednesday that the average of new cases in the last seven days is 628, which keeps the trend of the last days upwards and it exceeds the level that the City has imposed for its first red flags. What you want is to keep this number below 550, set level to operate cautiously since the activity in the city began to reopen. In October the 550 level was exceeded on several occasions and now five consecutive days are added above that figure. Meanwhile, the governor Andrew Cuomo sent the message that the increase in cases in the country and in the world is a reminder that the pandemic "It is far from over". Cuomo said that while goo...
