Gmail’s New Settings Overhaul Makes Customing Your Email Interface Easier

Gmail isn’t short on options for customizing the appearance of your email. But that might be hard to realize because getting to your settings feels like jumping through several flaming hoops. Now that’s a thing of the past, thanks to an overhaul rolling out to users.

Once the updated interface hits your account, you’ll be able to access it through a cog button in the upper right-hand corner of Gmail. From one spot, you can access various designs, inbox types, and display settings. When you select an option, the inbox will change immediately, making comparisons and seeing how an interface looks much more accessible than before.

Google says the new settings overhaul is coming to both G Suite users and personal Gmail accounts. It’s rolling out the change in stages, so you may not see the updated interface yet. The company says the update should hit all users within a month.

You don’t need to do anything on your end, and you can’t jump to the head of the line. So here’s hoping you’re next on the list if Google hasn’t upgraded you already.

How to Choose Between iPad Pro and MacBook Air

choose-ipad-macbook-featured.jpg For years, there has been an ongoing debate over what the iPad Pro is and is not. Is it a computer, is it a tablet or is it something in between? While that debate continues on its own, it’s also opened the door as to which device someone shopping for a new computer really needs. For most computer users who rarely do more than browsing, shopping, banking, booking travel, etc., the iPad Pro may be perfect. That’s not to say you should ignore Apple’s popular MacBook Air lineup, though. Let’s take a look at how to choose between the iPad Pro and a MacBook… Read more13586535.gif

Samsung’s Tab S6 Lite Is the Cheap Tablet You Need

tyxsdpfsk2ti3i7i7azr.jpg

Let’s be honest: There’s nothing exciting about basic tablets anymore. I don’t mean those fancy (and pricey!) convertible tablets like the iPad Pro, which can double as a slate and a laptop. I’m talking about the kind of tablet that lives in your living room (probably on a coffee table) that you use to surf the web…

How to Play WMV Files on iOS

how-to-use-iphone-as-remote-featured.jpg For any experienced iOS users, it’s not surprising there are often some nuances that come with owning an Apple device. Apple’s desire to use its own software formats is one such example. Because of that, playing file types like Windows Media Video, better known as WMV, can often be problematic. This file type is a Microsoft standard, so it plays nicely with Windows apps and not Apple. The good news is that WMV file playback on the iPhone or iPad is not only possible but really quite easy. Keep reading to see how you can play WMV files directly on your iOS device. … Read more13583291.gif

Skullcandy and Tile Team Up to Make True Wireless Earbuds You Won’t Lose

A woman wearing the Skullcandy Indy FuelSkullcandy

One of the biggest arguments I hear against true wireless earbuds is that users are afraid they’ll lose them. It’s a valid point—they’re tiny objects, after all. But Skullcandy wants to negate that fear with its newest earbuds because they feature built-in Tile trackers. How cool is that?

The lineup consists of four new sets of earbuds ranging from $60 to $100, but all of them come with Tile out of the box. When I first heard the news, I assumed (please don’t assume) that tracking would be built into the case, but I’m happy to report that isn’t the case—each bud has its own tracking chip. That’s smart.

You’ll pair the buds up with the Tile app (iOS/Android), and that’s all there is to it (all the buds also work with the Skullcandy app for iOS and Android). if you misplace a bud, just fire the Tile app up and search for it. It’ll make a noise so you can easily find it. It’s worth noting that this also works when the buds are in the case, so you should be able to find them in nearly any situation (unless you lose the case while wearing the buds, I guess).

There are four styles of earbuds, each a little different from the others. Here’s the skinny:

Push Ultra ($99.99)

Skullcandy Push Ultra in Energized YellowSkullcandy

  • Workout-style buds with moldable earhooks
  • 6 hour play time/34 hours from the case; rapid charge
  • IP67 sweat- and water-proof
  • Ambidextrous design with full physical controls on both buds
  • Wireless charging case
  • Available in Energized Yellow and Black; Bleached Blue coming Spring 2021

Indy Fuel ($99.99)

Skullcandy Indy Fuel in BlackSkullcandy

  • Stick-style buds with ear wings
  • 6 hour play time/24 hours from the case; rapid charge
  • IP55 sweat-, water-, and dust-resistance
  • Ambidextrous design with touch controls on each bud
  • Either bud can be used solo
  • Wireless charging case
  • Available in Black

Indy Evo ($79.99)

Skullcandy Indy Evo in Pure MintSkullcandy

  • Stick-style buds with ear wings
  • 6 hour play time/24 hours from the case; rapid charge
  • IP55 sweat-, water-, and dust-resistance
  • Ambidextrous design with touch controls on each bud
  • Either bud can be used solo
  • Available in Pure Mint, Black, and Chill Grey

Sesh Evo ($59.99)

Skullcandy Sesh Evo in Bleached BlueSkullcandy

  • Small form factor
  • 6 hour play time/18 hours from the case; rapid charge
  • IP55 sweat-, water-, and dust-resistance
  • Ambidextrous design with touch controls on each bud
  • Either bud can be used solo
  • Available in Black, Pure Mint, and Bleached Blue

Most of these are available to order today, save for the Bleached Blue models where applicable—those seem to be delayed across the board.
