Give me an HTC 10 without those capacitive buttons (and that hideous home button) and a fingerprint reader on the back ala Nexus 5X, and I'm sold.
 
Choo-choo! All aboard the hype train. HTC building Nexus devices

With the Android N Developer Preview out and about, that also means the Googs is working on hardware to sport the latest and greatest Android has to offer.

Rumor has it that said hardware is being produced by HTC. Could this help save HTC? I sure hope so. It's no secret that they've been struggling for a while.

The devices are rumored to be codenamed #Marlin #Sailfish.
There have been whisperings around the net that HTC would once again find itself picking up the Nexus mantle this year, working close with Google to launch their latest flagship for 2016. It's been a long time since we've seen an HTC-made Nexus device, so I guess one is long overdue especially considering how well-received the original Nexus One was back in 2010. Earlier today @evleaks decided to add a little more weight to these rumors, tweeting...

Well currently I'm paying $60 for 12GB of data on Sprint, plus charges for calling/texting/etc. Data is shared over two lines, we typically hit around 10GB every month. It'd be more expensive to get two individual plans on Fi than what we have now.

WELL I WOULD IF MY CARD SERVICER WAS AN ACCEPTED FORM OF PAYMENT FOR SAMSUNG PAY.
 
If you haven't yet tried #SamsungPay, Samsung will give you free Level U wireless headphones when you add your first card.

#Android
Samsung has run quite a few promos in the past to get folks to sign up for Samsung Pay. If you still haven’t given Samsung’s mobile payments service a try, though, the company has another offer to entice you to enroll.

Anyone seen this before? LG G4 screen consistently glitches. Touch elements on the right side of the screen still work, but the image is burned into it until it randomly goes back to normal.

Update: Went to Sprint yesterday, rep told us it's been a common problem with the G4. Bright side is they gave my girlfriend a free upgrade to a Galaxy S6!

No, we don't need these things. Just let teenagers have no idea how to put a condom on, so they decide not to even bother, have unprotected sex, and end up with an STD or a teenage pregnancy that the GOP will then try to force them to carry out. Makes complete sense.
 
54 percent of all pregnancies in Michigan are unintended, but let’s stop students from learning how to properly use a condom in sex education class. Share this information!Share on TumblrPoc…

My wife and I were just talking about this. Her HS's version of sex ed. was telling the girl's it was up to the man, and telling the man to wait until his wedding night. 😢

May get an Echo Dot for the bedroom, but also to say "Alexa" and see if they both try to do the same command at the same time.
 
NICE
Amazon has announced two new hardware device that use the same Alexa voice command technology that is use in the Amazon Echo speaker. The Echo Dot is a smaller version of the Amazon Echo that is available for $89.99, and Amazon Tap is a portable speaker that is available for pre-order for $129.99.

Any suggestions for a smart lock for an apartment? Looking around for something that we can place over the deadbolt without changing the exterior of the lock (since my apartment complex prohibits that). August looks good but there are mixed reviews. Any other ideas?

Just out of curiosity, does anyone with an S6/S6 Edge have a Nexus Wireless Charger (the newer, square one)? I'm looking into getting one but have heard reports of the S6 not working with it, and wanted to confirm.

Bueller?

College kid, political blogger, most sarcastic guy you'll ever meet. Ignorance is my kryptonite.
Introduction
I'm a young, enthusiastic writer pursuing a career in journalism and politics. If you ever find yourself in a conversation with me, be on the lookout for nerdy references. I love discussions and debates, and I am fascinated by the way we communicate and interact when it comes to certain issues. Fair warning: sarcasm is my favorite method of relating a point. I'm very sarcastic, which comes off as asshole-ish to some people. 

Anyway, feel free to circle me if you're entertained by random political or nerdy posts about Android and other things.

The Resistance effort in Birmingham UK for Ingress

Absolutely. Awful. Service. Took nearly 45 minutes to get our food. The waiter spent over an hour dealing with one table (that had been there before we even arrived). After he brought our drinks, it's like we never existed. When we FINALLY got our food, we didn't even get everything we ordered. I asked for steak sauce to go with my sirloin, and the waitress who brought our food to us said she would bring some right over to us. We never saw her again. I ended up walking over to the waiter's station and grabbing a bottle of A1 my damn self. We finished eating and sat at our table for ANOTHER HOUR before the waiter finally approached us and asked if we needed anything else. We got the check, paid, and left. Worst service I have ever received at an O'Charley's location, or at any restaurant for that matter. Never eating here again.

Food was not very good, the pizza selection is pathetic. They only offer three or four different types of pizza, and all of them are lacking in cheese and flavor. The salad bar is definitely sub-par and the pasta isn't winning any awards either. Not worth $7 at all.
