LG launches new stylus-enabled phablet G Stylo

While there are a lot of various smartphones and phablets out there to choose from, there is a certain lack of honest to goodness penabled devices out there. Other than Samsung's Note series, there aren't that many smartphones with built-in styluses to satisfy those of us who'd like to use an accessory to help us use our gadgets. LG tried to once with its LG G3 Stylus, and now they're going at it again by launching the LG G Stylo.

Adobe Lightroom update: RAW support, access to microSD

Sometimes, you need to work on your photographs in the RAW. Okay, we don't actually mean photo editing while you're butt naked, but if you're a real photographer, you know we mean the RAW file format, or the yet "unprocessed" shots you take with your camera.

With the sheer number of apps that we have installed on our smartphones and tablets, we don't get to open them everyday (unless you do need them for work or school). But what if you really wanted to be updated about something that interests you but you don't have time to open up the app everyday? If your interest is sports, then you'd probably be happy that the BBC Sports app's newest update is giving you a widget to make things easier for you.

AlarmRun scares you into actually waking up when you have to

There have been a lot of alarm apps available, where developers think of the most "creative" ways to drag you out of bed. A new app will attempt to social media shame you if you don't wake up on time. We don't know whether to kiss the developers of AlarmRun or throw real alarm clocks at them.

Google expected to launch new wireless service tomorrow

As early as 2012, we learned that Google could be working on a wireless service and was rumored to be in partnership with Dish Network. However, the idea was soon debunked or was discontinued early on because according to a Google executive, regulations blocked the company from entering the phone service market.

And now, Google's wireless service is finally expected to launch tomorrow, April 23, Thursday.
