Both Rootmetrics and JD Power released separate reports this week that focus on the consumer experience and network quality from U.S. wireless carriers. The reports peg Verizon as the clear winner in both situations, while Sprint and T-Mobile struggled to even remain in the conversation. AT&T faired well, but still remains in the distance from Verizon in overall rankings, especially in the reliability category. You may remember AT&T’s “we are the most reliable network now” campaign? According to these reports, that campaign should end now if it hasn’t already. (more…)
While we continue waiting ever-so-patiently for the Tegra K1 from NVIDIA to show up in hardware we can actually buy, we shall proceed to drool over its benchmark scores. The 64-bit quad-core and dual-core models of the Tegra K1 were announced back in January at CES, featuring a somewhat unheard of 192-core GPU, based on the Kepler architecture which is found in NVIDIA’s GeForce line of PC graphics cards.
To sum up the hype in simple terms, this mobile SoC features desktop grade performance, which will be essential for next-gen mobile game developers to take advantage of. (more…)
Word from T-Mobile is that the company has reached 300,000+ pre-registration sign-ups for the Galaxy S5 from Samsung. Sign-ups began the day the phone was announced, which was only a week and a half ago. While signups won’t exactly translate to exact sales, it’s still an impressive number of people who are interested in the Galaxy S5. (more…)

Hit enough objects and you get special powers. (more…)
Earlier this week, users around the world began seeing a celebratory second birthday set of deals go live on Google Play. For whatever reason, those deals were not made immediately available to the U.S. market. That has now changed. If you hit up the link below, you’ll be able to join in on the celebration.
In the set of deals, you’ll find everything from free apps to in-app purchase deals and exclusives. There are free songs, cheap albums, cheap books, discounted movies, and more. It doesn’t exactly feel like the 10-cent or 49-cent deals from the past, but they still may be worth a look.
I’m mostly speechless after watching this new ad for the LG G Flex, but in a fantastic way. It is so completely, 100%, can’t-be-argued, brilliant on a number of levels.
Talking bearded hands that can be fed cheesecake while attacking you with a crab claw? That awkward moment where you take your sexual conversation over garlic too far, resulting in a kitchen counter hump session? “Wolverine, like a BAAWSS.”
Yes to all of it. Do more of this LG, do more.
