Why do you rewatch your own Instagram stories?

Why'd You Push That Button? is back. We took a break last week to feast on Thanksgiving side dishes, and now we've returned to break down why we snack on our own Instagram content. More specifically, we want to know why people rewatch their own Instagram stories and obsessively check who's viewed them.

How to buy the perfect PC case

No matter whether you treat your computer as the centerpiece of your home office or just stuff it under your desk, buying the right PC case matters.

iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone X: Which one should you buy?

For the first time, Apple has not just two sizes of its newest iPhone, but two distinctly different iPhones. There’s the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus, which keep the same form-factor we know and love, Retina display, Home button, and all. And then there’s the new hotness, the bleeding-edge iPhone X, with an OLED display and a TrueDepth camera that unlocks the phone when you look at it.
You’ll notice that Apple didn’t call the iPhone X the “iPhone Pro,” to match the naming scheme of the iPad and MacBook lines. That may be because inside, the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 Plus are really pretty similar. They do have some key differences, however. So, which one should you buy? Without further adieu, here’s a complete comparison between the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 Plus.

When your phone gets snatched: A survival guide

Let's start with a confession: I'm one of those idiots you heard about on the news last year.

Cast your mind back to July 2016. It was the summer of Pokemon Go, the augmented reality game that had us scouring the streets for Hypnos, Jigglypuffs and Seels. It was also a summer plagued with Pokemon-related calamity. Distracted Pokemon hunters crashed into police cars, wandered onto military bases and fell off cliffs. One man even claimed to have been stabbed while playing the game.


Thankfully, in my case the only thing hurt was my bank balance. Well, that and my pride. I was loitering around CNET's London office, trying to capture a gym, when a gloved hand entered my peripheral vision. I only half noticed as it closed around my phone, a leather-clad thumb unhelpfully blocking my view of the Hypno I was trying to defeat. I flexed my fingers, but something felt wrong. It only dawned on me that my hand was empty when I looked up in time to see two people on a moped zoom away w…

You will soon be able to listen to Amazon Music through your Samsung Smart TV

Recently, Samsung has been rolling out new features to its lineup of Smart TVs, such support for YouTube TV. Yesterday, the company announced (via Engadget) that owners can soon listen to Amazon Music through their Smart TVs, the first third-party device to connect to the service.
The company says that users will be able to browse their libraries, playlists and access recommendations and stations through the system. The service will also be accessible through other Samsung audio products, such as soundbars and wireless speakers.

While users can listen to streaming services such as Spotify through Samsung’s SmartTVs, this might be appealing alternative to Prime users who own a Samsung TV, but who don’t have an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot in their home. The company didn’t say exactly when users will be able to begin listening, saying only that it will be “available starting this month.” The functionality is limited to models from 2015 and newer.
