And another Nexus bites the dust. Receive 5.1 OTA to fully stock tablet, hit install, it destroys the partitions and can't boot into the OS or recovery. Can't flash manually because it doesn't have a partition table. Out of warranty because it's a 2013 model.

Yay, Google!

Update: Google Support gave me a $10 Google Play gift card. Yay? Ffs.

We talked some Project Fi, LG G4, Sony Xperia Z4, Android Auto and plenty of other things!
On today's podcast: Google serves up a double dose of T-Mobile and Sprint service with its new Project Fi. Plus, the LG Watch Urbane and LG G4 smartphone are nigh, and Alex is going to lose his stuff on Sony. Again. Plus, we answer more of your questions live!

Hopefully so. Though I can't say the phone is generally 30 inches away, let alone feet. Cheers.

Considering we went from a $349 Nexus 5 and $229 Nexus 7 to a $649 Nexus 6 and $399 Nexus 9, this isn't at all surprising to me.

I see Nexus 5s and 7s in the wild every day, but have yet to see a Nexus 6 or 9.
Speaking in the Google Q1 2015 earnings call, CFO Patrick Pichette indicated Nexus revenues declined this quarter. Revenues from the Play Store (and now Google Store) are such a small portion of Google's business that they're clumped into an "other revenues" category each quarter, but that doesn't stop the company from reporting how they impact the bottom line. In Q1 2015 the other...

Still kinda shrugging at this one. Even if the technology to switch between networks is completely seamless, the pricing isn't seriously competitive and it's tied to a phone that isn't the most appealing.
Google has announced Project Fi, a new program that aims to keep you connected, no matter what network you're on. Beginning as an early access program, Google is working with Sprint and T-Mobile to build Fi. The service is centered around three main areas of focus: high-quality connections, easy communication across networks, and a simple service experience. Fi will put you on the...

The pricing isn't bad for someone like me who, through T-Mobile, has unlimited data but never goes over 3GB a month. Even if I get the 5GB plan, for the same price as I pay now for my T-Mo plan, chances are, I get some money back every month and hopping networks may help me out in cases where T-Mo has holes in the network.

Considering Amazon already offers same day and Sunday delivery from the regular Amazon.com site (not to mention Amazon Fresh groceries) where I live, it's a tad odd Prime Now isn't available.

Don't like it at all. Looks nicer but it takes at least 10x the time to get a bookmark in the folder I want now. The suggested folder hasn't been correct once. I'd like to see a more substantial list when you first hit the star.

Take the Nexus 6 requirement out of the equation (which is only theoretical at this point), and you have a service that isn't revolutionary in terms of pricing, but can still win some people over with simplicity and a few neat features.
Google's Project Fi isn't so much a revolution in pricing as it is a rethinking of how a carrier should work. Not many people have a strong liking for the way their current mobile carrier operates. You can find the same stories about bad customer support, data speeds and phones related to all of the major carrier in the U.S., and Google's hoping to get some of those disgruntled...

The "all vpn all the time" and "international data is the same price" plus included tethering are all very interesting.
