Inside the new Moto app, home to most of the cool Moto X features

27
Moto app on the Moto X 2014

All of your favorite features are back on the Moto X, this time housed in a single app

On one level, not too much has changed in the 2014, insofar as the software is concerned. You still have the hotword voice actions, you still have the peeking notifications, and Motorola Assist is still on board, with its bevy of cool features.

New with the 2014 Moto X is that they've all been moved under a single umbrella app, simply called "Moto."

Let's take a quick walk around the new space to get our bearings.

How much will a Galaxy Note 4 cost off-contract?

152

Galaxy Notes have never been cheap phones, and the Galaxy Note 4 is no exception. While buying the phone on-contract can soften the blow (or at least spread the misery out), for many, that's not an option. Maybe you have to buy unlocked to keep that precious unlimited data plan. Maybe you just don't like And besides, you don't have to sell your wireless soul for two years to get the Note 4, you can buy off-contract. You'll be spending a pretty penny, but it's a pretty phone, and a pretty useful one at that. So, here's what the newest phablet will run you on each of the major American carriers (T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint).

  • We'll start with Verizon, mostly because they'll be the cheapest for the Note 4 off-contract. Big Red will sell you an off-contract Note 4 for $699.
  • Next is Sprint, which is offering it at $720 dollars off-contract for its users.
  • T-Mobile is offering the Galaxy Note 4 at $750 to all users, since there is not carrier subsidy.
  • And AT&T will be happy to sell you a Galaxy Note 4 at a $825, without a contract but with all of AT&T's bloatware.

There you have it. Go forth and claim your Note 4, wherever it may be.

HP Chromebox review

66
HP Chromebox

It's not going to be your main machine, but the HP Chromebox could be a simple and inexpensive choice for the right person

Chromebooks may be the talk of the town when it comes to Google's Chrome OS, but the tiny desktop-class machines called Chromeboxes have carved out their own niche as well. While they're primarily focused on education and business applications as video Hangouts machines, Chromeboxes are a great go-to choice for a cheap computer just like their laptop-style counterparts.

Several different manufacturers are in on the Chromebox game, but the most affordable model right now is the HP Chromebox starting at just $159. It's not as easy to pick up and get to computing right away as a Chromebook is considering you'll need to add your own screen and in some cases peripherals, but for a few specific use cases a Chromebox may be just the right tool for the job. Read along for our full impressions and review of the HP Chromebox.
