It's a start... They are essentially rebuilding the site from scratch, mobile first. I was skeptical at first but think great progress is being made. :)

While written specifically for the new honor 5X, this article from +Phandroid has a collection of great tips for getting the most out of Huawei's custom EMUI 3.1 software. Some of the features are really quite helpful - once you know how to use them.

One note: On the topic of Protected Apps, Phandroid recommends "protecting apps like launchers, music players, [and] messaging apps"; after using several Huawei devices (including the 5X) over the past year, I strongly advise protecting ALL apps except for any known to cause problems in the background (Facebook, Instagram, etc.). I've been running my Huawei devices like that since October or so and it's made a big improvement in everyday usability.
The honor 5X is easily one of the best Android devices you can buy for under $200. The best part is you don't have to sacrifice much to get that rock bottom pricing, with the honor 5X coming equipped with many of the same features typically reserved for bigger name (read: much more expensive) flagship devices. Because there is so much you can do with the honor 5X, we wanted to make sure you knew how to take full advantage of it. Here's our list o...

Seriously... It's like a little device living under your sink that goes "OH HELL NO" if shit gets wet.
 
Install a leak controller under your RO to help prevent water damage in case of a leak! #HealthyHomeTips  
Leak Controller Water Alarm and Shut-off System, The First Line of Defense Against Water Damage. Upon sensing moisture, Leak Controller will engage the shut-off valve and sound an alarm. The water source is cut off, stopping the leak while the alarm continues to sound until the valve is manually reset. By preventing continuous water flow, mold and property damage are restricted and user liability is reduced. Leak Controller is designed for simple...

Holy crap guys, wow! Check this out, especially if you have a VR headset. Otherwise check it out on your phone, so you can change views.

It's a 360 video from the surface of mars. You look down to your feet, and you see Curiosity.

I have goosebumps.

Looking forward to see what Google does here, and how Android is evolved to intertwine...
 
Google will reportedly release a Gear VR competitor this year: The past four years have been VR hype-dominated, but if you were really pressed to pin one as The Year of VR, I suppose it would be 2016. That's when most of these machines leave their comfy nests and beta states, and they actually get released into the world and are expected to function properly. Add one more to the pile, it seems. A report from Financial Times says that Google intends to seriously enter the VR market. By year's end, Google will launch a new smartphone-powered VR peripheral that's aligned as a direct competitor to Samsung/Oculus' Gear VR. While no real specifics are known yet, this VR headset is said to have "better sensors, lenses, and a more solid plastic casing." It's also reported to be compatible with a wide range of Android phones, not just those in the Samsung Galaxy line like is the case is Gear VR. Google has already taken a (relatively speaking) primitive, yet innovative, stab at VR with its Google Cardboard display. Even though it's made from cardboard, that peripheral has shipped more than five million units. With everyone excited about the technology, it's very possible that Google could see its second VR success -- this time with a more substantial product. Google pushes further into virtual reality with new headset [Financial Times via GameSpot] http://dlvr.it/KS4gyG

Our analytics guy told us the Super Bowl is trending, so we should write about it. This got us thinking (which is hard to do when you’re 4 layers deep in a 7 layer dip).

Super Bowl… sports… fuzzy things… MASCOTS.

Mascots are like the delivery drivers of the sports world. When they show up, everyone cheers and high fives each other, and for just a moment, everything seems right in the universe.

Can you tell we’re really reaching? OK we’ll shut up and let you enjoy this carefully selected list of the all-time best videos of mascots doing mascot things.

https://blog.eat24.com/mascots-the-unsung-heroes-of-sports/
We think sports are Ok, but mascots are really the best thing about watching. This blog post is for you furry wonders.
