Evernote remains one of the most popular note taking mobile apps, and now it wants to make it easier to share those notes with others. A new update to the Android app that’s rolling out will allow any notes to be shared without leaving the Evernote app itself.
If you have a note that you want to show someone else, you can now open it in Evernote and then tap the share button, which is the three connected dots logo on the top right of the app. After that, you then tap “Share” or the white chain link button. You can share the note via email, your favorite messaging app or even on Slack, again with no need to open up those apps separately.
In addition, the Evernote Android app now has a “Shared” section, where you can quickly check out all of the notes that you have shared with others, in case you need to refer to them again. Finally, the app update includes a way to share notebooks of content with others. This can come in handy for a group meeting so they can see everything that’s being discussed, or if a family or group is taking a trip and want to have access to a shared itinerary and more. Evernote says that others can add their own files to the shared notebook, along with adding any of their own notes or comments.

If you are looking for a solid portable Bluetooth speaker that’s also waterproof at a great price, then Amazon has something you might be interested in. The UE ROLL 2 speaker, in its Sugarplum color, is currently on sale at Amazon for $54.99, That’s a big 45 percent discount compared to its normal $99.99 price tag.

It’s also very light; at less than half a pound, you can pretty much take it anywhere, including on the lake in your favorite fishing boat.
The UE ROLL 2 speaker also comes with a bungee handle, which allows owners to strap it onto nearly anything they can think of.

You should be able to get up to nine hours of battery life on a single charge.
While the UE ROLL 2 is also available in other colors, the Sugarplum version is the one with the big 45 percent discount, so keep that in mind when you order one. Will you be picking this durable and portable Bluetooth speaker for your next trip? Let us know in the comments!

It was around three weeks ago that the US government concluded its investigation over ZTE’s involvement in illegal shipments of hardware to Iran and North Korea. The Chinese telecommunications company was ordered to pay a whopping $1.19 billion, and now, they’ve released an official statement over this scandal.
In case you missed it, the speculation started all the way back in 2012, when Reuters reported that ZTE was involved in providing hardware to Iran so that the state could spy on its citizens. Although the Chinese telecom equipment maker denied the charges, because the shipment of US-made technology to countries like Iran is strictly prohibited, the US government launched a formal investigation into the matter.
Fast-forward to 2017, and ZTE pleaded guilty and was ordered to pay $892 million in settlements for shipping $32 million worth of material to Iran illegally, and an additional $298 million for items shipped to North Korea. As a result, it was placed on a so-called trade blacklist in the US, but today, the US Commerce Department announced that it would remove the company’s name from that list.
As a result, ZTE was placed on a so-called trade blacklist, but today, the US Commerce Department announced that it would remove ZTE from that list.
The Commerce Department added, however, that it would impose severe restrictions on Shi Lirong, now a former CEO at the company. In the meantime, here is an official statement released by the current CEO:
Today, ZTE is turning the page on a challenging chapter in our past and is optimistic of our future. By acknowledging the mistakes we made, taking responsibility for them, and remaining focused on enacting positive change in our company, we are committed to a ZTE that is fully compliant, healthy and trustworthy. With this settlement behind us – and coupled with recent efforts to streamline operations and grow ZTE’s innovative leadership around 5G – we anticipate continued growth and business expansion over the next several years as we continue to work with our partners in the U.S. and around the world.
Though the scandal is settled for now, ZTE is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world – if it wants to enter the US market (which is hard as it is), it must foster a better sense of accountability.
What are your thoughts on ZTE? Do you think consumers will forget and move on? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below!

Now that the Google Assistant digital AI is available on more Android phones, Google is also expanding its reach to include support for more connected devices. That also means those devices can be used with commands given via the Assistant-based Google Home smart speaker.
In a blog post, the company stated that Google Assistant and Home can now work with devices from Best Buy’s Insignia brand, That means you can set it up so when you say, “OK Google, turn on the fan”, it will activate if the fan is connected to the Best Buy Insignia Wi-Fi Smart Plug.
Google Assistant and Home can also work with products from companies like the smart multicolored lights sold by LIFX, along with the connected lights and smart plugs that are available from TP-Link. Finally, you can make voice commands that will work with products from Wink, including its lights and its smart hubs, which can help control a number of other connected devices like thermostats and others.
Google Home, along with the Google Wi-Fi mesh routers, will soon expand beyond the US. The company confirmed earlier today that both products will be sold in the UK starting on April 6, and both will be priced starting at £129.
