S Pen apps

Steve Jobs said the best stylus is a finger. Samsung disagrees, and so do these apps

One of my favorite features of the Galaxy Note 4 (and one of the coolest things to happen to smartphones ever) is the S Pen. It's not a stylus. Instead think of it as a smart, pressure sensitive accessory that's paired with hardware and software on the Note 4 to make for a really good input device.

With the Note 4, we see huge improvements (and real life improvements, not just spec-sheet mumbo jumbo) in the sensitivity of the S Pen and how smooth it works. It's a great addition to any large-screen device, and one you really need to use to appreciate.

Here are some great apps to use it and see!

Verizon says the Nexus 6 is 'coming soon,' for what that's worth

But now Verizon's website actually says that it's "coming soon," which really doesn't mean anything more than what we knew yesterday, which is that it's supposed to be coming to Verizon eventually, but you can't buy it yet.

But, hey, it's something, even if it's nothing.
