Samsung is usually pretty good about releasing kernel sources for its phones in a timely manner - at least for its flagship devices. Hot on the heels of the worldwide Galaxy S8 and S8+ release, Samsung has published the kernel source code for the Exynos variants of both phones.

There's not really anything here for normal users - kernel sources help developers create custom recoveries, kernels, and ROMs for a given device.

Last year Google started using their new neural machine translation as a means of improving translations through context. A bit over a month ago Google updated it to work with a few new languages. Today Google has added nine more English pairs of languages to the app: Indonesian, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu.

Google's translation functions, from the one built into Chrome to their Android app, have been tremendously useful tools.

One of the biggest hurdles you can run into when starting a company is the issue of patents. Often larger companies don't like the competition whether or not they actually have a patent on your technology. There's right and wrong, but independent of the merit of a case brought against you, it doesn't matter if you can't defend yourself. Now Google and Intertrust are launching a new service called PatentShield that provides startups with access to a patent portfolio from contributing companies like Google, giving them a means of defending patent-based attacks with their own.

Google has introduced a new tweak in Chrome Dev channel for streaming full-screen video tabs to Chromecasts, significantly improving power consumption and streaming performance. Now your Chromecast can directly pull the video itself. Obviously there are lots of major and minor benefits to being able to stream any video feed to your Chromecast at higher quality. Now you can stream live feeds and videos from sources that didn't previously support Chromecast streaming, or for which the old methods resulted in a stuttery or low-quality stream.

Smartphone cameras have come a long way, but can you ever take images that rival a "real" camera? According to Google software engineer Florian Kainz, the answer is yes. Using a custom camera app and some post-capture editing , Kainz shows what the camera sensors in the Pixel and Nexus 6P can do in low light situations.

Kainz says his little project was inspired by a chat with Google's Gcam team, which focuses on computational photography.

One of the killer features of Chromebooks is the ability to run Android applications from the Play Store. But it has been difficult to tell exactly when each model would get the feature, until now. Google has updated its list of Chrome OS devices to clarify the status of the Play Store for each product.

As you might know, Chrome OS has different 'channels,' much like the Chrome browser itself. Chromebooks normally use the Stable (release) channel, but if you're feeling adventurous, a beta channel is available as well.

Since time immemorial (1998) Google's bread, butter, and raison d'être has been search. Now Google's changing the way search works a bit, empowering users by adding new feedback tools and changing results from their search ranking to bring you more relevant and accurate information. With these changes users should see less in the way of so-called "fake news" and other non-factual content (excluding searches for that material), and more accurate and relevant information pertaining to their search.

You can still spend nearly $1000 on a phone if you want, but there are vastly cheaper options that aren't terrible. ZTE has been making great strides in the "cheap but not bad" space lately, and it has just announced a new device called the MAX XL. As the name suggests, it's a big phone. The price isn't big, though. This device is live on Boost Mobile today for $129.99, and it's on sale for $28 off.

Sony has added yet another handset to its Open Device Program. This time it's the Xperia XZs. With older brother the Xperia XZ and the X Performance already on the list, it was only a matter of time before the newer flagship made its way to the program. Sony's support for the open source community is commendable, and this is more great news for developers hoping to play with custom builds of Nougat on their Xperia devices.
