The March numbers for Android version distribution are out today, and Android 5.0 Lollipop saw a slight bump to 3.3 percent device coverage compared to 1.6 percent when it first landed on the chart last month. KitKat enjoyed a slight bump to 40.9 percent of devices, up from 39.7 a month ago. Jelly Bean (versions 4.1 through 4.3), on the other hand, dropped slightly from 44.5 percent...

LG introduces its best-looking wearable yet — including a unique LTE-capable version In a relatively short amount of time, LG has rapidly developed its smartwatch portfolio. Starting with the original square reference device for Android Wear, the G Watch, and evolving later last year into a more traditional watch design with the G Watch R. Now, still less than a year on from its first...

I don't think I like this.
It's been the punchline to plenty of gags, and now it looks as if Google is finally ready to do something with its homegrown social network. The search e

+Mike Stone all they are doing is undoing the addition of photos and hangouts. They tried bundling them and removing gallery and google talk. It didn't work. They are simply undoing their failed bundling experiment.

Tantalizing.
 
Google will launch two new Nexus smartphones made by LG and Huawei
Rumor has it that Google will be launching not one, but two new Nexus smartphones later this year with Huawei joining the Nexus making game (NASDAQ:GOOG, SHE:002502, KRX:066575)

Huawei has announced its very first foray into the Android Wear space at Mobile World Congress with this, the Huawei Watch. For a first entry it's an impressive looking thing, with Huawei boasting a team of traditional watch designers having been involved in its creation. The Huawei Watch comes with a 1.4-inch, 400x400 resolution circular AMOLED display inside a 316L corrosive-...

Wasting no time whatsoever, AT&T has become the first US carrier to announce plans to carry LG's latest smartwatch. Ironic given the lack of SIM support.

Story
Introduction
I currently develop server side software for a large pharmaceutical company. My department specializes in Reporting using a web portal and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. My personal role is Server Automation. I came to this job after working in IT for 8 years. Before that I worked as a software developer for 3 years, and before that I worked in IT for 5 years. I have a hard time making up my mind.

I started using Linux personally in the late 90s, and have loved it ever since. I am the owner and creator of Linux Rants. I’m also active in the forums of many technology sites where I can often be found picking a fight. When I’m not online, I’m spending time with my family.
