We still don’t have an official launch date for Star Wars: Uprising, except for sometime in Fall, but that won’t stop me from getting excited for the upcoming role-playing game from Kabam. Set between Episode VI and The Force Awakens, you design and equip your own character, then set out to become the hero the Star Wars galaxy needs. (more…)
I can’t tell what the bigger announcement is from OnePlus, that the OnePlus 2 will have 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM or that they are done with this obnoxious (t)rollout of features until they unveil the phone on July 27. I’m leaning towards the latter. Actually no, I’m fully invested in the latter. OnePlus may have made a heck of a phone last year in the OnePlus One (our review), but my lord, they are the most obnoxious company on Earth with this #hypetrain garbage they continually vomit to keep their name in headlines. So, yay for no more feature puke! (more…)
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will more than likely be introduced in two months at Berlin’s IFA conference. If you don’t care and would rather have last year’s Galaxy Note 4 at a discounted rate, then well, Samsung has a deal for you. If you buy a Galaxy Note 4 between today and July 26 at full retail, they will send you a rebate check of $200. (more…)
Last week, Motorola told us that the Lollipop update for the AT&T Moto X (1st gen) was almost ready for your phone, they were just waiting on AT&T to give it the green light. AT&T must have signed off on it yesterday, because soak test invites for an “early preview of a new software release” went out to Motorola Feedback Network members. That software is Android 5.1, of course. (more…)
NOTE: Holy confusion hell. Google Apps or Google Apps for Work is not your regular Gmail. Google Apps for Work is a paid suite of Google services for businesses, basically, that gives you access to Google services, but with a custom domain, like [email protected] We aren’t talking about package tracking cards from your Gmail ([email protected]) account – that feature has been there for months if not years. We are talking specifically about Google Apps or Google Apps for Work users in this post.
If you have attached your life to a Google Apps account (like a Google Apps for Work account that uses a domain – ex: [email protected]), you are probably well aware of its many limitations when it comes to newly introduced services or features by Google. Apps like Inbox launch first without GApps support, which can be frustrating for those who think they are on the cutting edge of technology, but are often held back by the type of Gmail account they use.
One of the longest standing delays in features for Google Apps users has been full Google Now support. What I mean is that Gmail Google Now cards still to this day do not work with GApps accounts. These are cards that are created based off of emails received in your inbox, like packaging tracking cards from shipping notices or hotel, flight, and restaurant cards that created from confirmation emails. Google even states on their Google Now support pages that “Some features, such as Gmail Now cards, aren’t available when using Google Now with a Google Apps account.” (more…)
Last week, the DROID Turbo was updated by Verizon and Motorola to run Android 5.1, after a very long wait by owners. Given that the Turbo was running Kit Kat up until last week, Turbo owners are still probably getting used to all of the changes inside Lollipop, and we want to know how it’s going for you so far.
