The first Nothing smartphone might look a bit like a Dyson vacuum

Sucks for Dyson.

What you need to know

  • Dyson's former head of design, Adam Bates, has joined Nothing as design director.
  • The company announced that it has sold over 400,000 Nothing ear (1) earbuds.
  • Bates will create the company's first design hub in London with the likely aim of creating Nothing's first smartphone.

Adam Bates, former head of design at Dyson, as join Carl Pei's Nothing as design director. Bates leaves his 14-year tenure at Dyson — where he helped design Dyson Supersonic, Airwrap, and a number of other Dyson products — to form Nothing's first design hub in London. Bates says his "mission at this early stage is to build a team and develop a design culture so we can create iconic products that will change the consumer tech landscape."

After Nothing's first product launched last year — that's the Nothing ear (1) earbuds — many expected the company to announce a smartphone shortly afterward. While that still hasn't happened, hiring Bates for the design team could be the first key step to getting an iconic smartphone design out to match ear (1)'s unique transparent design.

Dyson products are usually marked by their minimalist, yet industrial, look with primary color accents. Nothing ear (1)'s could certainly be described as having followed a similar design language. While they didn't quite make our list of best wireless earbuds, it seems that consumers have found the company's first earbuds to look unique enough to give them a try. To date, Nothing says it has sold over 400,000 ear (1) units.

Given how unique-looking Nothing's first product was, getting a design powerhouse like Bates on board could help drive more stand-out upcoming products. We previously reported that Nothing was working on 5 new products back in November, and it's likely that Bates' design team could have a hand in at least a few of these if they are eventually released to the market.

Nothing already has a significant investor and talent base, which includes the group formerly known as Google Ventures, YouTuber Casey Neistat, Twitter co-founder Kevin Lin, and co-founder and CEO of Reddit, Steve Huffman.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu
