Spotify tries out new look for its menu options

If your Spotify app updated recently, you’ll notice something different when you tap on options of a specific song. The contextual menu you see this time looks different. The icons are gone and are replaced by larger text. The black overlay that takes up the entire screen needs you to scroll to get through all the options. This might be a result of having the text take up more space. But it does require you to scroll a bit more to get to what option you want. There isn’t a change in terms of functionality. It’s purely a visual update. While it easy to read, the icons did make it easier to distinguish what you wanted to do. What do you think? Do you like this change?

LookOut Charger is designed like a power brick but is actually a security camera

If you’re looking for an inconspicuous security camera for your home, a new Indiegogo project has something you might want. The LookOut Charger is compact security camera that can keep watch on your home by just having it plugged into a socket. It even works as an actual phone charger with its 5V 1000MAH power output. The small camera inside the device is capable of recording 1080p video with audio thanks to a microphone also included. It has two storage options—16GB and 32GB—that can record three to four hours or six to seven hours, respectively.

This doesn’t come with any complicated setups or apps to link to. You just need to plug it in for it to start working. And running out of storage isn’t an issue. It has video looping capabilities, meaning it’ll record over older clips when it exceeds its storage limit. The Plug A/B type will work in the country. You can score one of these by backing the project, which can cost as low as US$45. Shipping is estimated to start in June.

Samsung will completely disable charging capabilities of the Galaxy Note7

Samsung is making it extra hard for those still holding onto their Galaxy Note7 devices. The South Korean company plans to disable charging on the phablet to push those who still have the devices with them to return the product to the brand. Samsung initially limited the charging capability of the Note7 below capacity and even cut off mobile network access. If you’re still holding on to the device already deemed a fire hazard, we highly recommend you give up the device for your own safety.
