HTC One M9 leak

The photos, which claim to highlight the front and back of the device, reveal a similar BoomSound front speaker arrangement, reduced bezels, shiny gold color and a squarish camera module with dual LED flash at the back.

Nexus 6 battery life tips

Nexus 6

Make the most of your Nexus's battery

Battery life is one of the areas of smartphone tech in which there's still much room for improvement. As a cutting edge handset, the Nexus 6 includes some of the latest developments in mobile tech — wireless charging, quick charging through the bundled Motorola Turbo Charger, and improvements on the software side thanks to Google's "Project Volta."

Despite this, there going to be times where you wish you were able to squeeze more juice out of this gigantic phone's equally enormous 3,220mAh battery. As we mentioned in our review, the device's battery life is pretty good, but not astonishingly so. So it's worth going over a few basic steps to help you get the most out of your battery.

YouTube is one of the best ways to watch Tuesday's State of the Union address

White House YouTube channel

A quick reminder that the president's State of the Union address is Tuesday night (9 p.m. EST). And for those who indulge in such political exercises (and it really should be all of us), YouTube has become one of my favorite ways to watch the events. No tickers. No talking heads. (Other than the one on the screen. Zing.) Just the president of the United States, 535 of his closest friends (give or take a few extras), and me.

Plus, easy mobile access, Chromecast streaming, and direct viewing on a Nexus Player.

We'll have the direct feed further on down in this post, or you can snag it from the White House YouTube channel.

Nexus 7s

Android 5.0.2 factory images started arriving back in December and continued into January, and now we're starting to see the first OTA updates rolling out to Nexus devices as well.

Head past the break for the links to the OTA files, and to find out how to use them!

AT&T pushes out update for HTC One M8, brings Android 4.4.4 and HD Voice

72

Update 1/20: Looks like AT&T let some update docs slip out where they shouldn't have been, and they've since been pulled. So if you don't see an update just yet, don't be surprised.

Original follows:

It's certainly no Lollipop (sadly), but AT&T has pushed out an update for its HTC One M8 today. While it's relatively minor in the grand scheme of things, the update does enable HD Voice on the handset, and brings it up to Android version 4.4.4 KitKat.

Cree's $15 connected LED bulb is perfect for the rest of your house

35
Cree connected

Smart lighting is a bunch of fun to play with, but for most people the current costs are way too high. Most people who have managed to justify the cost of a starter kit only go so far as to outfit a room or two, and that has just as much to do with there being absolutely no need for crazy color changing bulbs in your bathrooms as it does the price and design of the bulbs. The folks at Cree have been working very hard over the last year to release cheaper and cheaper LED bulbs, and with that comes the opportunity to release a connected bulb at less than half the cost of the more commonly known competition that you'd actually consider replacing all of your regular bulbs with.

The Nexus 6, three months on

81
Nexus 6

How does the Nexus 6 hold up after a couple months of use?

The Nexus 6 is one of the most loved — and most controversial — "Google phones" to ever debut. The excitement about the size and form factor was at an all-time high, and whether you loved the idea of a big Nexus phone or hated it, everyone was talking about it. And we still are talking about it.

It was also the first foray into the Nexus world from Motorola. When Google first purchased the company, plenty were excited at the prospect of them building Nexus phones, tablets, and random devices like cannonballs. Google quickly announced that this wouldn't be the case, and the self-governed Motorola division (later offloaded to Lenovo) would still have to participate in any bidding for a Nexus contract. While we all can speculate that a slight bit of favoritism was in play, it appears that in 2014, Motorola won the bid and produced the Nexus 6.

The Nexus 6 came about with a lot of fanfare and gnashing of teeth, but how does it hold up after using it for a few months? That's what we're going to talk about today. Buckle up and dive in.
