Google Now updates and additions have been rolling out quicker than I can say “OK Google” — I don’t know what’s going on over there in Mountain View but I like it. We’ve been treated to health questions, NCAA stats, increased movie details, and a lot of other useful information. I’m honestly starting to become convinced that Google Now will one day become all we need on our phones.
Don’t believe me? You will after you let Google get you drunk with their latest feature.
Samsung had to do something, even with its millions of phones sold last year, 2014 was fiscally a bad year for the Korean giant. They tried to renew the Galaxy S series with updated specs, a fingerprint sensor, and even water resistance, but with all of that, the phone was still considered comparably a flop. So they went back to the drawing board and came back out with the S6 and the S6 Edge.
Early Sunday morning in Barcelona, HTC put all the rumors and leaks to rest as they announced their newest flagship, the HTC One M9. For the past few weeks we’ve received leak after leak about the device but now we have the official list of specs and features from this year’s One. Let’s dive in and take a look at what makes the M9 the One to get.
Mobile World Congress 2015 is so close I can almost taste the Samsung Six Appeal. With Samsung set to “unpack” its latest Galaxy Lineup, it’s no surprise we’re now seeing another time-honored live stream countdown clock. Just as with HTC, Samsung is planning to get everyone with an internet connection to tune in March 1st for the live stream of its 2015 Galaxy Unpacked event in Barcelona.
When it comes to mobile device production, Motorola has been doing wonders over the past two years. First they announced the coveted Moto X, G, and M, along with great devices like the Moto Maxx/Turbo and Nexus 6/X Turbo. Then late last year, they began reviving the original lineup with a 2nd generation version of the Moto X and G. And now, they’ve added a 2nd generation budget-friendly Moto E.
If for some insane reason you’ve already maxed out your 20,000 song limit on Google Play, we’ve got some good news: Google has increased the music storage limit to 50,000 songs! By more than doubling the free song storage capacity, Google has ensured the majority of music lovers out there that they will have a place to store all the songs they will probably never listen to. For the true music aficionados out there, this should allow you to add an N-Z section to your alphabetized digital collection.
At this point, we probably know more about the HTC One M9 than HTC would care to admit. Either way, HTC still plans to try and “wow” us with its latest flagship device in Barcelona during MWC 2015. To ensure we don’t miss a single lens flare video, adjective laced feature set, or downright hyperbole, HTC has posted streaming information for the March 1st event.
Last weekend, LG told the world of a new Android Wear watch that they were releasing soon, the LG Watch Urbane. The Urbane touts a classy, all-metal Wear device in which to rival the Moto 360. In the press release though, LG only included photos and nothing else. Now it seems they have added a video in an attempt to impress us even further.
