BlackBerry 10 has been a complete flop since it made its debut with the Z10 in early 2013, but it does deliver some nice features that I’ve been waiting for on Android for almost three years. One of those in an awesome virtual keyboard that’s terrific to type on.

Now that BlackBerry has its own Android device, that keyboard has been ported to Google’s platform — and you don’t need to buy a Priv to get your hands on it. Here’s how to download and install it on your device.

Did you know that it’s incredibly easy to access open Chrome tabs on your Android and iOS device? So if you’re reading an article on your computer and you have to dash out, you can access it later while you’re on the go without having to search for it again, type in a URL, or email links to yourself.

Here’s how.

Forget self-driving cars that will drive you to the store while you sit back watching Netflix, because where we’re going, we don’t need roads.

Google has finally made its Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTAs available to download, allowing users to update their devices manually rather than wait for it to reach them over-the-air. If you’ve never flashed an OTA manually, it can be a daunting task — but it’s actually very simple.

Here are the steps you need to follow.

If you don’t mind using Samsung’s own TouchWiz launcher, but you hate the icon badges that leave your home screen looking messy, you’ll be pleased to know you can disable them. Samsung doesn’t make it easy, but it is possible in just a few steps.

Here’s how.
