How to use autofill forms in Chrome

Chrome Autofill

ChromeWhen you log into your Google account within Chrome on any platform, Google syncs your history, bookmarks, settings, and almost all information saved within your previous browser sessions. (Assuming you've told it to, of course.) While it can be handy to have your previous history or bookmarks always up to date on all of your devices, Chrome also tries to assist you in tedious tasks such as filling out forms that involve your name, address, and much more information about yourself.

Chrome does this by auto saving your form history and includes it with the data that is synced between all of your browsers. In Chrome for mobile, Google allows the user to not only turn on this feature but to also browse saved autofill form data, create new profiles for future forms, edit what has been saved, and to add credit cards to make purchases easier.

Operation Clean Slate: clearing your history in YouTube

Youtube histories are a wonderful way to look inside someone's soul...

How to cover your tracks and clear your YouTube history

Welcome back to class. Today, we're watching videos.

Your YouTube history is fairly easy to find and clear out if need be, but what about the search history? Do you want it to autocomplete to "red hot baby mommas" every time you're looking for a Red Hot Chili Peppers video? Did you forget to switch accounts before handing it off to your little ones and now your recommendations are littered with those mind-numbing toy demos?

Or, yes, worse. Much, much worse.

Never fear, we can scrub that data from YouTube and get you back to what you really want to see — more cat videos.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini review

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini

Another year, another Samsung Mini — is this one any better?

Even with the arrival of smaller flagship-level handsets like the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, "mini" Android smartphones typically occupy the mid-range space. This was the case with last year's Galaxy S4 Mini, and many miniature flagships since, including HTC's One Mini 2. And the same is true of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini, which downsizes its specs as well as its display.

But unlike last year's model, 2014's Samsung mini brings over some of its big brother's headline hardware and software features, meaning the user experience is much closer to the premium Galaxy S model this time around. But the GS5 Mini, like the phone upon which it's based, faces more competition than ever at its current price point. So how does it compare? Join us after the break, as we give the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini the full review treatment.

The Case-Mate Tough Case for the HTC One M8

Case-Mate Tough for HTC One M8

This case gives the HTC One M8 some grip it's sorely lacking

We sometimes joke about using a large phone to bludgeon someone. Or sometimes you'll pack your phone in one of those large "rugged" shells and see what kind of damage you can do. But rarely do we look at one of those form fitting cases as a blunt instrument.

That changes today, with the Case-Mate Tough Case for the HTC One M8.

This sucker is one serious case.
