A month with Nest’s latest smart thermostat


Nest’s programmable thermostat has just turned four, and the company marked the anniversary with the debut of its third-generation device. Four years ago, thermostats were still boring blocks stuck to your wall and while programming them was already possible, it was always a painful process. Once you’d fixed your temperature schedule with an endless collection of up- and down-arrow keypresses for Sunday through Monday, that selection remained fixed, with the very thought of changing the schedule leading to cold sweats. Typical configurable settings included a schedule for cool, heat and occasionally vacation mode. I’ve lived with one for ages and it has run faithfully, always following the schedule I made when I first set it up many seasons ago. I’ve coveted the Nest thermostat since launch and so, when I was recently offered an opportunity to use the newest version at home I jumped at the chance to see if it would really make a noticeable impact on my world.Slideshow-336817

Life with my robot secretary


By Mark Wilson

This article originally appeared on Fast Company and is reprinted with permission.

I’m not important enough to have what the rich and powerful call “people.” Most of us aren’t. The average personal assistant is paid about $31,000 a year, while the average wage for the US job market is roughly $5,000 less than that. In other words, for a majority of Americans, it would be a sizable step up just to become a personal assistant.

Nuka-Cola Quantum available in time for ‘Fallout 4’


Finished Nuka Cola Barstool

No one really knows what’s in those bottles of Fallout Beer, but they likely won’t hit US shores. What will however is Nuka-Cola Quantum. The folks at Fallout developer Bethesda have teamed up with the purveyors of funky fizzy drinks, Jones Soda, to put the “irradiated” refreshment on Target shelves just in time for Fallout 4‘s launch. Come November 10th, you’ll be able to start slugging down what looks like the company’s Berry Lemonade (a picture’s embedded after the break) in preparation for what we’re affectionately calling “Vault Day” here at Engadget. You know, what everyone else is referring to as November 10th, a.k.a. Fallout 4‘s release date.

Chainfire cooks up “systemless” Marshmallow root


This is my Note 3, there are many like it but this one is mine.

Rooting legend Chainfire has released an Android 6.0 root method that doesn’t modify the /system partition. Chainfire emphasizes that this root is highly experimental and probably prone to bugs, but if this experiment is successful, it could make for a much cleaner approach to rooting Android.

There could be many benefits to this new approach. For one, a standard factory reset would remove the root. This is pretty interesting, because currently unrooting a device is a significantly more involved process. Also, this removes the risk of bricking your phone if you use the wrong kernel. Instead of bricking, and incorrect attempt at rooting with an unsupported kernel will simply fail to root the device.  However, if you’re looking to use this root on top of an older one, you’ll naturally need to reflash your stock /system partition before beginning.

Chainfire is, of course, the mastermind behind projects like SuperSu, CF Auto Root, CF.lumen, and TriangleAway. He’s an incredibly seminal developer in the Android modding community and is currently a senior moderator and developer at XDA.

If you’re feeling curious and bold, head over to the XDA forum where Chainfire released this newest idea. However, to keep discussion about the method centralized, Chainfire is requesting that all discussion and experimentation with the new method happen over in the SuperSU Beta forum.

Cassini gets cozy with Saturn’s moon, flies 30 miles above its surface


Cassini has just finished the second of three planned Enceladus flybys on October 28th, going as close at 30 miles above the surface of the icy moon’s south polar region. The photo above was taken after the flyby, showing both the moon and Saturn’s rings, but rest assured the probe took a lot of close-up photos. It even grabbed some of the gas and dust that erupted from one of Enceladus’ geysers that typically spew water and other materials up to 125 miles into the sky. NASA will analyze those samples within the next few weeks, which should gives us more details about the composition of the moon’s ocean floor, as well as about any underwater hydrothermal activity. Cassini made the first flyby this early October to take a closer look at Enceladus’ north pole region. It’s scheduled to make its last one on December 19th to measure the heat the moon gives of, after which it’ll move on to other things for the last two years of its life.

MicroSD offline playback lets you take Amazon Prime music with you


amazon prime music

Previously, if you wanted to take your Amazon Prime tunes on the go, you were limited by the internal storage of your device. Offline playback was available, sure, but not for microSD cards. Songs can add up fast in terms of storage space. For a long time, users have been crying out for Prime Music to allow offline playback of songs downloaded to memory cards so that they wouldn’t have to be constantly picking and choosing which songs they were going to bring along with them.

Finally, Amazon updated the app to gain the ability to store songs on the microSD card for offline playing. In addition to this, Prime Music received support for Android Wear. Now your favorite streaming service can integrate seamlessly with your wearables, allowing you to control your beats without even pulling out your phone.

Small perks, to be sure, but Prime Music has to pull out whatever stops it can to get ahead in this market. Amazon’s streaming service has long been lagging behind more popular services like iTunes, Pandora, Google Music All Access, and Spotify.

The main culprit in this shortfalling is Prime’s noticeably smaller library, but Amazon has been making efforts on this front as well, steadily adding to their catalog. They’ve also introduced Prime Stations to go head to head with streaming radio services,  and this most recent update also added a “New to Prime” section to put a spotlight on the music Amazon has been acquiring for the service. There’s also a new “Popular” selection so that you can keep your finger on the pulse of what’s trending in today’s music world.

Only time will tell if Amazon Prime’s music service will reach the levels of popularity enjoyed by other major streaming services, but if they keep at it with these updates, the future looks bright for them. If you’re an Amazon Prime account holder, you can give their music app a spin by downloading it from the Google Play Store.

What do you think? Do you use Prime to stream your music? Why do you prefer it over other streaming services?
