This is awesome. +HTC's Sense mail app has always been the shining star of Sense, for me at least. Adds some really great, handy features without getting too bloated, especially for Exchange support. 
In an effort to be able to provide updates faster, HTC has brought its Mail app to Google Play as a standalone download. HTC has decided to put its Mail app as a listing in Google Play, allowing them to better control the update process of the application. With this new listing, HTC will no longer have to push out an OS update in order to bring new features, or squash any on-going...

This functionality is already present in Android, dubbed "AppOps". You need root and a special app to enable it, but it's baked right in. I've been using it for a while - the Facebook app(s) are MUCH better when you basically disable all their permissions.
  According to a report this afternoon from Bloomberg, "people familiar with the matter" have said that Google is preparing to give Android users more control over what data gets shared with t...

A wireless headset was the best thing I ever got for gaming, especially with kids in the house. Wish I had the $$ to upgrade - mine take AAA batteries and eat through them like nothing. 
If you want to get a headset for the Xbox One that has all the bells and whistles, the Turtle Beach Elite 800X might be for you. The company announced today that the high-end wireless headphone is now on sale for the premium price of $299.95. 100% Fully Wireless -The Turtle Beach Elite 800X is completely wireless for game and chat audio, and uses intelligent channel-hopping for an...

Any IT/network folks in my feed?

I have a Charter modem hooked up to a TP-Link TL-WDR3500 router. I have 2 devices (Xbox and laptop) hard-wired to the router, with about 10 WiFi devices (mix between 2.4GHz and 5GHz) connected. Modem is on default settings, and the router is basically on default settings, with the exception of a single computer, which is hardwired in (and a custom SSID and password, of course).

I set the DHCP IP address bank to 100-198, and then assigned 199 to that one computer. I then have a port forwarded for that IP address.
The problem that I have is the Internet connection dropping out. Happens across devices periodically - WiFi is connected, but there's no Internet behind it. Usually disconnecting/reconnecting the network fixes it, but sometimes I have to reboot the whole setup (modem+router).

Any ideas?

This wouldn't bother me so much if they would stop being so stingy with the built-in storage. When I can buy a 64GB microSD card for $25, there's no reason a $650+ flagship should only have 32GB of internal storage. 
If you were to compare iOS and Android, the latter's storage expansion option via microSD -- up to a whopping 200GB these days -- is often regarded as an

I agree and disagree. The high speed on board storage is usually much faster than the current high speed sd cards. I do think storage options should start at no less than 32gb and upgrades should not be as expensive as they are currently.
