Apple News+ is great for people who read a lot of magazines and newspapers and who might otherwise have paid much more per month for individual subscriptions. Access to The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair and other magazines makes it more than worth the cost to me.

But it isn’t for everyone, especially folks who don’t want magazine subscriptions or who don’t want to be restricted to reading stories within the app.

So, if you want to cancel it, here’s what to do:

Google and Amazon have ended their war over the YouTube app

Google will relaunch the YouTube app and release a new YouTube TV app on Amazon Fire TV devices in the coming months, Amazon said Thursday. At the time, Google said it decided to remove the app due to a “lack of reciprocity” from Amazon.

Google and Amazon have ended their war over the YouTube app

Google will relaunch the YouTube app and release a new YouTube TV app on Amazon Fire TV devices in the coming months, Amazon said Thursday.

Amazon Prime video will also soon support the Google Chromecast, ending a streaming spat between the two tech giants that started in 2017.

Google pulled its YouTube app from Amazon’s Fire TV and Echo Show in December 2017 as competition between the two companies began to heat up in the streaming space.

At the time, Google said it decided to remove the app due to a “lack of reciprocity” from Amazon. It said Amazon refused to sell Google products such as the Google Home speaker, a competitor with the Amazon Echo, and the Nest camera, which competes with Amazon’s Ring system. Amazon still does’t sell the Google Home, but it does sell Nest cameras and thermostats.

Fire TV users have been able to use a third-party YouTube app that simply linked folks to the YouTube website. But a new version should offer a more feature-rich experience with support for 4K HDR content.

The addition of YouTube TV also means customers who subscribe to Google’s streaming TV service will be able to tune in on the Fire TV, which supports additional services including Hulu, Sony’s PS Vue, AT&T DirecTV Now and Sling TV.

Samsung Galaxy Fold review: $2000, early adopters only, it broke

That means companies like Samsung and Apple are looking for new ways to attract phone buyers.

Samsung Galaxy Fold review: $2000, early adopters only, it broke

Sharper screens and better cameras have not been enough for people to upgrade their phones. Consumers are holding on to phones longer than ever before – up to 4 years according to a Bernstein report from February – and smartphone shipments are down across the globe to levels not seen since 2014.

That means companies like Samsung and Apple are looking for new ways to attract phone buyers.

The Galaxy Fold is a $1,980 example of a new form factor that might get people to care about new phones again… eventually.

Samsung has a history of driving the smartphone market forward with new form factors. People once gawked at the Galaxy Note for having a 5.3-inch screen, which seemed gigantic at the time. But it ushered in a new era of large phones that have been adopted by every phone maker on the planet.

As a major supplier of screen technology, Samsung’s foldable displays are likely to be used in millions of devices in the coming years. And while I can’t recommend it today, it could give you a taste of the future standard as prices drop.

I’ve been using an early European version of the Galaxy Fold for the past several days, which is almost identical to what will be sold in the U.S. save for some of the radios inside. Here’s what I learned.

Samsung's $2,000 folding phone is breaking for some users after two days

We tried to review the new Samsung Galaxy Fold — but it broke after two days of use 4 Hours Ago | 00:33

Samsung’s $1,980 Galaxy Fold phone is breaking for some users after a day or two of use. A review unit given to CNBC by Samsung is also completely unusable after just two days of use.

The phone has only been given to gadget reviewers, but some of the screens appear to be disconnecting and permanently flashing on or off.

The Verge’s Dieter Bohn posted earlier on Wednesday that his phone appears to have a defective hinge with a “small bulge” that he can feel that’s causing the screen to “slightly distort.” Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says his “review unit is completely broken just two days in,” but noted he accidentally removed a protective film on the screen.

YouTube tech reviewer Marques Brownlee also removed the film and experienced a broken display. A Samsung spokesperson had warned on Wednesday not to remove the protective layer.

However, CNBC didn’t remove that layer, and our screen is now also failing to work properly. When opened, the left side of the flexible display, which makes up a large 7.3-inch screen, flickers consistently. It looks like this:

Samsung started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Fold last weekend, but quickly ran out of availability, suggesting supply is constrained at least until its retail launch on April 26. Folks who ordered it might want to reconsider at this point.

Samsung decline to comment.

Suddenly, every major tech company is building an Apple AirPods competitor

Microsoft is building its own set of in-ear headphones to compete with AirPods, according to Thurrott, a website that follows Microsoft closely. The move adds to the growing list of major tech companies seeking to capitalize on the massive popularity of AirPods. Microsoft announced its Surface Headphones last year, and they let consumers speak to its digital voice assistant, Cortana, much the same way AirPods owners can speak to Siri.

Suddenly, every major tech company is building an Apple AirPods competitor

Microsoft is building its own set of in-ear headphones to compete with AirPods, according to Thurrott, a website that follows Microsoft closely. The move adds to the growing list of major tech companies seeking to capitalize on the massive popularity of AirPods.

The product is currently code named Morrison, according to the site. Microsoft announced its Surface Headphones last year, and they let consumers speak to its digital voice assistant, Cortana, much the same way AirPods owners can speak to Siri. Thurrott speculated that they are named for the late rocker Jim Morrison of the Doors

This would mark Microsoft’s second attempt at headphones and would further position the company as a hardware player. In recent years, Microsoft has bolstered its portfolio of products to align more against Apple’s, with its Surface Laptop, Surface Pro and Surface Studio desktop.

Apple’s AirPods have exploded in popularity, and it appears that other manufacturers want a piece of the market, especially among people who might not own Apple products.

The Thurrott report follows another from Bloomberg earlier this month, which said Amazon is planning to launch a pair of buds that are similar to AirPods, and that they would let people speak to its Alexa voice assistant. Samsung recently released its take on the product with the Galaxy Buds.

Thurrott didn’t provide details on Morrison and whether or not they’ll come with a charging case like AirPods.

Microsoft was not immediately available to comment.

Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 1 streamed early by AT&T

AT&T accidentally streamed the highly anticipated Season 8 opener of “Game of Thrones” four hours early for some customers on Sunday evening.

Most people needed to wait until 9 p.m. local time to watch the episode. However, news website Insider spotted people on Twitter who were able to watch it beginning right around 5 p.m. ET. While it’s a relatively minor flop, it’s an indication again that streaming services are still struggling with reliability.

AT&T owns HBO through its acquisition of Time Warner, which was completed last year after a year-long merger process. The Department of Justice attempted to stop the merger after it went through, but its case fell apart in February.

“Apparently our system was as excited as we were for ‘Game of Thrones’ last night and gave a few DIRECTV Now customers early access to the episode by mistake,” AT&T told CNBC. “When we became aware of the error, we immediately fixed it.”

How to delete your voice recordings from Google Assistant

How to delete your voice recordings from Google Assistant

Like Amazon, Google stores and collects the things you say to its assistant on your phone, computer or smart speaker, like the Google Home.

Google’s privacy page says it does this to “help you get better results using your voice,” and that it only does this after you say “OK Google” to learn the sound of your voice and how you speak certain words and phrases.

Google has a whole host of things I’ve said saved to its servers. It has when I asked the temperature back on Sept. 2, 2014, for example, and everything I’ve asked since then. It has a recording of my voice — or my wife’s — asking Google Assistant everything — such as playing music, turning off the bedroom lights, getting directions.

Normally, this isn’t a big deal. I don’t mind if it saves a few commands for the sake of creating a better product. But I know that Google can get a better picture of my entire life the more data it has, so I’m glad I can delete all of these recordings.

Like me, you might not want Google to save this information, or you might want to review all of the commands you’ve ever spoken. Over the past year, Google has made it a lot easier to see the sorts of information it collects, and gives you better controls over stopping it from gathering some specific data.

You can turn it off completely, but just note that this might affect how well Google responds. You can always turn it back on if you run in to trouble.
