T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S5 Gets Marshmallow Update

Yesterday, T-Mobile began pushing an update of Android 6.0 to the…wait for it…Samsung Galaxy S5. Yeah, that old bird. Sweet, right?

The update is showing up as either software version G900T3UVU1GPE1 or G900TUVU1GPE1, depending on, something. Honestly, I have no idea why T-Mobile has two different variants of the Galaxy S5 cruising around that need different software versions. You want to complain about fragmentation…  (more…)

Google Cast Offer Gets You 3 Months of YouTube Red for $0.99, Which Means Google Play Music Too

YouTube Red, the ad-free version of YouTube that also includes a subscription to Google Play Music at a price of $9.99 per month, can be had as a Google Cast (Chromecast) offer for just $0.99 for three months. At less than a dollar, I’d say signing up is probably worth the hassle if it gets you the next few months of ad-free YouTube streaming with a bonus of the Google Play Music collection on the side.

If you own a Cast-eligible device, you can check to see if the offer is available to you by hitting up the Google Cast Offers page, linked below. Once redirected, the site will check all of your devices to see if the YouTube Red can be yours. If it can be, the click of a “redeem” button followed by a short sign-up process over at YouTube should be all that is required.

Enjoy.  (more…)

Once these changes take place, over the next few months according to Twitter, replies with @names and media attachments (photos, GIFs, videos, polls) will no longer count. (more…)
