10

Finally. A car charger that provides Quick Charge 2.0 on not just one, but both USB outputs.

We've had our hands on a bunch of car chargers in the past, many of them supporting Quick Charge 2.0. The real drawback being that you're limited to a single port that provides the technology. TYLT's new Y-Charge QUIK Car Charger is making the change, cramming 4.8A (48W) inside its goofy build for a quick boost in battery life while you hit the road.

Weekly poll: Did you pick up a new Note 5 or S6 edge+?

247
Note 5 and S6 edge+

Since carriers started selling the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+, they have pretty much been the talk of the Android world. At least the Internet part of it.

Lots of good things have been said — once again Samsung's screen is found to be the best in the business (no surprises there) — and of course there are some folks with issues. Memory management and S Pen insertion come to mind. But for the most part, I see a lot of happy people who bought a big fancy new phone. I like happy people. We all like happy people.

Now we're curious about how many people out there got a new Note 5 or S6 edge+ and are quietly being happy. Take a minute and answer the poll to let everyone know if you grabbed a new Galaxy last week.

The sad, short, sorry saga of the Galaxy Note 5 S Pen

400
DO NOT DO THIS EVER

The echo chamber that is the tech journalism crowd (card-carrying member right here) has taken what started with a chuckle and turned into a full-fledged -gate the story of the Samsung Galaxy Note S Pen — and the fact that it's very much possible to get it stuck in the body of the phone. There's a lot of joking and plenty of gnashing of teeth — some warranted, some the usual Twitter fodder.

So let's get down to it.

This is what you need to about getting the S Pen stuck inside the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Or how to not get it stuck inside the Galaxy Note 5.

22

Starting the USB-C transition.

MicroUSB has been the golden standard with Android phones and tablets for several years now, but over the next year there's heavy expectation that we'll see the new USB-C connector take its place.

Link Bubble becomes free to all, with refunds coming for recent Pro purchases

22

There are dozens of Android browsers out there today, but none of them work quite like Link Bubble. It's an app that fits a specific kind of mobile browsing, and the users that fit that niche absolutely love the overall experience. A few weeks ago, the creator of Link Bubble sold his popular little browser to a stealth mode startup company that wasn't quite ready to reveal themselves to the world.

Today that changes, and the new company now known as Link Bubble has started things off by removing the need to pay for advanced features and made Link Bubble and Link Bubble Pro one and the same.
