Wednesday Poll: Will You Try to Sign-Up for Google’s Project Fi?

Google’s Project Fi is about all we can think about on an Android front at the moment. Even though it’s invite-only and only works with the Nexus 6, we can’t wait to grab a Project Fi SIM card and take it for a spin. The thought of being a part of a network that is constantly attempting to find you the strongest, fastest connection is a pretty interesting idea. We also like the fact that Google refunds you for unused data and doesn’t appear to be including any carrier-related gimmicks.

But that’s us. We want to know what you think about Project Fi. Assuming you live in an area that can participate and receive an invite, are you thinking about joining? Is Project Fi worth dropping your current carrier for?

If you don’t know and still need to learn more about Project Fi, check out this post of ours.

Facebook Introduces “Hello,” a Dialer App for Android

Facebook just announced a new app that might replace your current dialer, called Hello. At least, that’s what they want you to do with it bv selling you on its features, which include call blocking, people and place searching, and a caller ID-like functionality that shows you who is calling even if you don’t have the number saved to your phone.

With incoming calls, Facebook can show you information that is being shared via profiles on Facebook, at least that’s my understanding. Chances are that people calling will be sharing some form of information, so this could be a pretty solid and free see-who-is-calling option. With people and places searching, the listings show you numbers, if the person/place has free calling through Messenger, and give you quick access to directions. As for call blocking, a simple button press allows you to block unwanted solicitors.  (more…)
