If people named or linked what face they are wearing, it would be better.

Plex updated to 4.0!

The latest +Plex​ update brings about a completely revamped mobile UI, support for managed user accounts, and Android TV support has graduated from beta.

I love Plex and use it daily with my trusty QNAP NAS. What are you thinking of the update?

Android 5.1 build LMY47I factory images for Nexus 5 & 6

If you have to have the latest and greatest Android build (me!) or you feel like the world might possibly end without it, you'll want to update your Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 to Android 5.1 LMY47I. If your boot loader is unlocked, you can always dirty flash and not wipe user data, though, I'm more of a clean install type of guy.
Another minor firmware upgrade for those on Android 5.1 has been released by Google, and it's headed to both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6. It's build LMY47I, and Google has factory images available for you to download right now.

Hilarious! So, Ars Technica ran a story about YouTube Live, a supposed new streaming platform focused on game streaming, and they reached out to +YouTube for comment. A YouTube representative replied with this GIF below.

When asked about the report, a YouTube representative declined to comment to Ars and instead sent us an animated GIF of a little girl shrugging her shoulders.

Even though I love my Nexus 6 and wouldn't trade it for anything else, I do miss the cognac leather back of my Moto X 2014. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that it looks like Motorola is planning on adding a red leather back to the mix in the near future, based on the teaser below.
 
What’s your favorite #RedLeather go-to item? We’ve got a little something in the works…any guesses?

Android for Work Review

As BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) becomes more and more popular in the workplace, Android needs a much better solution than what MDM's previously provide. From an IT standpoint, it's a potential nightmare to have both personal and enterprise data on the same device, even if they're using separate containers. From user standpoint, I don't want enterprise crapware junking up my personal device. In the end, sacrifices have to be made, from both parties, to use your own personal device in a business environment.

Enter Android For Work. This uses Android's multi-user framework to securely separate the personal user data from the business user data.

I've been thinking about upgrading one of my Google Apps domains from free to paid, just so that I could play around Android for Work. Now I don't have to! Thanks +Ron Amadeo.

Buy a Galaxy S6 from T-Mobile and get free Netflix

If you're a fan of Samsung's Galaxy line and happen to be a T-Mobile customer, there's some good news headed your way. If you purchase a Galaxy S6 from T-Mobile, you'll get one year of Netflix for free . Happy streaming!
Besides being one of the few carriers in the US to offer unlimited data plans, T-Mobile is offering a full year of Netflix for those buying a Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, absolutely free of charge.

Pay Bills from Gmail, coming soon?

Google’s supposed “Pony Express” project will let you pay bills from Gmail. Google is apparently aiming to launch the service around the fourth quarter of this year, and they’re said to be in the process of lining up third-party companies who want to make this route of paying bills available to their customers.
