T-Mobile's Digits feature launches next week, lets you use your phone number on multiple devices

Image
T-Mobile phone numbers can be accessed from apps on Android, iOS, and the Web.

T-Mobile has announced it plans to officially launch its "Digits" program on May 31 after a successful beta that began late last year. The service combines features of services like Google Voice and AT&T NumberSync into a single product, by allowing customers to use their number on multiple devices, as well as creating additional numbers that can be shared between family members or used as a burner line. Digits works through the web as well as standalone iOS and Android apps, though recent Samsung phones and the LG G5 have native integration for Digits in their existing dialers. You make and receive calls as well as send and receive text messages on all connected devices, and much like Google Voice, it’s possible to customize which devices should ring whenever there’s an incoming call. All T-Mobile phone numbers will automatically become Digits and customers will be able to use them across de…

Tesla's Model 3 will reportedly do 0-60 mph in 5.6 second

Image
H An alleged sales brochure (or more accurately, an anti-sell document) for Tesla’s upcoming mainstream Model 3reveals the electric sedan won’t be nearly as zippy as its bigger brother, the Model S. A source claiming inside knowledge of Tesla’s activities recently published the brochure over on the Tesla Model 3 Owners Club (via Inside EVs). According to the leak, the Model 3 will be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds. That’s not really slow, per se, but it’s nowhere near as fast as Tesla’s other vehicles. Motor Trend earlier this year found that a top-of-the-line Model S P100D with Ludicrous+ mode, for example, can accelerate from 0-60 mph in a blistering 2.28 seconds. Then again, a well-equipped Model S P100D starts at $140,000 which is far less than the $35,000 base price the Model 3 is expected to debut at. The document also reiterates that the Model 3 will feature a range of 215 miles and again as we already know, it won’t be privy to unlimited Supercharger network u…

Order online, schedule your pickup and an employee will load up your car
Comment
Amazon is officially opening up its AmazonFresh Pickup locations in Seattle to Prime members in the area. The service allows shoppers to buy items online and choose a time to collect them at a drive-in Amazon facility, where store employees will deliver them to the car. The service requires as little as 15 minutes advance notice if you are a paying AmazonFresh subscriber, which costs an extra $14.99 per month on top of your Prime subscription. Regular Prime customers have to wait at least two hours before the earliest pickup window becomes available. According to Seattle Times, the first time you visit one of the AmazonFresh Pickup locations, a concierge will enter your name and vehicle’s license plate number into Amazon’s systems. That way a license-plate reader will be able to automatically identify the customer during subsequent visits. The automatic license-plate check-in can be turned off on Amazon’s…

Amazon.com is releasing out a Spanish language option

Image
The first time it has offered a language other than English
In the 20 plus years since it launched, Amazon.com has been available in just one language: English. But over the next few weeks, the US site is rolling out the option to switch everything, including listings, into Spanish. Changing from English is simply a matter of accessing the language drop-down menu near the “Accounts & Lists” option. As noted by CNET, it’s a feature that's likely to be appreciated by many in the US – the second-largest Spanish-speaking country in the world – which at last count had 41 million native Spanish speakers and 11.6 million bilingual Spanish speakers. "Customers will be able to shop, browse and search for millions of products, view their shopping cart, and place orders in Spanish on Amazon.com and through the Amazon Mobile Shopping app," a spokeswoman said in a statement. There are localized versions of Amazon in many countries around the world, including Spanish-speaking are…
