<p><a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/nexus2cee_topgreener-usb-outlet-deal.png" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-484037" src="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/nexus2cee_topgreener-usb-outlet-deal.png" alt="" width="2594" height="1200" /></a></p> <p>These days, many — if not most — of the electronics we charge or plug in use USB. Sure, your lamp and your fridge probably don't have a USB plug, but your phone, tablet, bluetooth speaker, portable battery pack, and maybe even laptop likely do. It's sort of an overkill to use a whole outlet just to plug in a single USB cable, which is why there are now several places where you can buy USB wall outlets that you can install directly on a wall.<div class="clear"></div> <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/04/03/deal-alert-today-top-greener-usb-wall-outlet-12-79-36-off-amazons-gold-box-deal/"...

The Play Store’s latest look (with oodles of white space) is spreading to more users, ready or not

<p style="text-align: center"><a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/hive8a4_play-store-white-top.png" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-hero-size wp-image-484023" src="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/hive8a4_play-store-white-top-728x410.png" alt="" width="668" height="376" /></a></p> <p>Interface design is a never-ending task, and no matter how much you might love the way an app looks and feels right now, there's always that angel (or is it devil?) over the developer's shoulder, whispering, “Couldn't that be a little more optimal? What if you moved this button over here?” And so, things change: sometimes for the better, hopefully not so much for the worse. A little over a month ago, <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/02/23/google-testing-colorless-shapeless-play-store-redesign-large-install-button/">we shared with you a new visual style that Google was flirting with for...
