2

The latest build of the experimental Chrome Canary web browser, which early testers can download to see what's coming to Google's web browser, now supports the HTTP/2 web standard.

This week's sidebar poll: Which gallery app do you use most?

65

Gallery apps are often overlooked, by users and my manufacturer's alike.

Some manufacturers take extra care in making their galleries easy on the eyes and easy on your phone — like the Motorola Gallery, just updated this week. Other device-makers leave the gallery app off altogether, instead leaving you Photos or to the mercy of third-party apps. And then there are those scores and scores of third-party galleries — like QuickPic, F-Stop, and My Roll — that put the stock Android Gallery app to shame.

Which one do you use?

If you need a primer, here is our comparison of Gallery and Photos.

Google+ and YouTube comments: A match made in HELL

50

Policing comments in a mostly anonymous system is almost impossible, so Google tried to fix things.

YouTube is an amazing platform where anyone with a camera and an internet connection can publish videos for the entire world to see for free. From the absolute novice to the professional production studio, YouTube is an invaluable resource for getting video to your users. More than that, though, it's a platform where viewers can communicate thoughts back to the content creators instantly. The comments section of every YouTube video is a place where feedback, suggestions, requests, and sometimes even contests happen. As you are no doubt aware, mid all of this back and forth between content creators and users is a bottomless pit of vile, nasty, and often horrifically vulgar communication. Depending on what video you are watching, terrible YouTube comments can feel like a sport where the goal is to be the most awful human being you can possibly imagine. YouTube offered basic comment policing tools, but since anyone could create an anonymous YouTube account in seconds it often felt like more damage was done by demonstrating a willingness to give these monsters some attention.

HTC to offer free broken phone replacement for first year with 'Uh-oh' service

64
HTC One M9

HTC appears prepared to offer you a replacement device for up to a year if your phone is damaged, or you change carrier.

HTC is hosting a live stream tomorrow that it's dubbed "Uh-oh", with little more than an image of the new HTC One M9 to explain what is going to happen during the event. A quick look through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office reveals HTC "Uh-oh" as a trade-in/replacement service with the potential for tech support of some kind to be offered, but with as generic as trademark filings can be sometimes that's not too much more to go on.

Fortunately, a source familiar with HTC's plans has clued us in on some of the details for this HTC event and the services that will be announced on stage. And even if what we know so far is all that gets announced, this event will be a fairly big deal to HTC One M9 owners.
