The best Android Wear smartwatch

The best Android Wear smartwatches

Our continuously updated list of the best Android Wear watch you can wear

We're now three devices into the Android Wear era — the LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live and Moto 360. More are coming. The LG G Watch R will be available in the coming months, as will the ASUS Zen Watch. We're still expecting devices from HTC and Fossil at some point.

Acer Chromebook 13 review

Acer Chromebook 13

A step in the right direction for ARM Chromebooks, and one we can actually recommend

I've made it no secret that I'm not a fan of ARM-powered Chromebooks. With their low performance and compromised battery life, ARM Chromebooks from a variety of manufacturers have never lived up to what Intel-powered models can offer. Acer and NVIDIA have teamed up to challenge that preconceived notion with the Chromebook 13 — the fourth distinct Chromebook model from Acer and the first in its class to run the new Tegra K1 processor.

But this machine isn't just about the processor. The Acer Chromebook 13 also offers a sleek design, good trackpad and a few different models with wallet-friendly prices that present a pretty solid value as well. Read along into my full review as I break down the details of the Acer Chromebook 13 and how it fares versus the competition.

Businesses can also use the new feature to restrict content based on where they want promotions to happen.

How to 'hack' Tinder in under two minutes so you can browse for matches anywhere in the world

Tinder, Tinder, Everywhere!

This is how you fake the GPS Location on your phone to tell Tinder you're somewhere else!

Tinder should really be spelled T - R - O - U - B - L - E because one of these days that's what this popular dating app is going to get me into! I love Tinder. I can't help it. It's not that I'm browsing for hook-ups or dating partners or anything like that. I'm in a relationship. I'm happy. I just find it really entertaining to swipe through photos of real people. Some people spend all day looking at photos of cats. Personally, I'd rather look at photos of women. To each their own. No judging. I have a few friends who do the same thing as me, so I know I'm not totally alone in this behavior.

The trouble with Tinder of course is that in order to browse Tinder, you need to put yourself on Tinder. And with Tinder showing matches based on your preferences of sex, age and distance from your location — up to a max of 100 mile radius — it's highly possible that somebody you know will see you on Tinder. Depending on your relationship status... well... like I said... that could spell TROUBLE when you get spotted by somebody who doesn't think you should be on Tinder. For that reason, I've only ever fired up Tinder when I'm traveling and am far away from home and those odds of being recognized are minimal.
