For the past 10 years, IFTTT (If This, Then That) has been offering a free service that lets you connect cloud services using recipes. For example, I used it to dump my daily Fitbit stats into a Google Spreadsheet for a few years.

But now IFTTT is going Pro, which means that after October 7th, you’ll need to pay $10/month to do all the things you’ve been able to do for free up until now. Or during a promotional period, you can pick your own price by signing up before October 7th. You’ll just need to spend $2/month or more.

While there’s still a free option, users who don’t pony up will be limited to 3 applets.

In other news, there’s a new Bluetooth vulnerability in the wild, Google is promising a performance improvement for Wear OS smartwatches, Eero has a mesh WiFi router with support for WiFi 6 on the way, and the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are available for their lowest price yet.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. Not quite correct info on IFTTT – single logic IFTTT commands will remain free, but they are adding advanced logic among other features if you pay for IFTTT Pro. The free service appears untouched.

    1. Whoops – that’s what I get for not reading all the way. They’re not limiting the applets themselves but the number of applets to three max. Yikes.

  2. I was eyeing the Galaxy Buds until I read that its multipoint support only works on Samsung devices.

    I ended up getting the Jabra Elite 75t a few days ago when it was $120 at Best Buy. So far it can connect to my 2016 iPhone SE and Surface Go LTE simultaneously fine. Auto switches between the 2 fine.
