The 7 best features of Inbox, Google’s new email killer

Naming your revolutionary new email product after the central feature in traditional email — the inbox — is peculiar at best, but that doesn’t make Google’s new Inbox app any less nifty. The new invite-only mobile and web app attempts to take the sting out of traditional email by skimming out the junk, applying better rules for organization, and only alerting you when important messages hit your inbox.

Of course, Inbox is only great if you know how to fully take advantage of it. More →

Android Lollipop Download

This is one of the best new features in Android 5.0, and you don’t even know about it

This is one of the best new features in Android 5.0, and you don’t even know about it

Some of the best Android apps in the world are the ones that you install, set up and then completely forget about because they work behind the scenes to improve your Android experience. One such app is called Dislock, and I have been using it for quite some time. This awesome free utility completely disables a device’s lock screen security when it is connected to a trusted Wi-Fi network or a trusted Bluetooth device.

Lock screen security is incredibly important, of course, but I don’t want to have to tap in my PIN code to unlock my phone when I’m at home, or when my phone is connected to the Bluetooth in my car.

Of course, not everyone knows about Dislock, but Android 5.0 has brought a similar function to all compatible Android devices thanks to a recent Google Play Services update. More →

AT&T finally begins shipping Nexus 6 preorders

Google’s new Nexus 6 smartphone was hotly anticipated this year, and Android fans were still blown away by the powerful new Nexus phone when it was finally unveiled. Unfortunately, getting your hands on the sleek new Motorola-built Nexus phablet isn’t as easy as it should be. Despite the fact that the phone launched some time ago, most Android enthusiasts eager to get their hands on Google’s latest available pure Android experience still don’t have their phones in hand — even if they were among the first to preorder the Nexus 6.

Thankfully, however, we’re now getting word that people who preordered the phone from AT&T, the nation’s top smartphone carrier, are finally seeing their new Nexus 6 handsets start to ship. More →

Apple slapped with $24M fine for stealing tech from old SkyTel pagers

Apple on Tuesday was ordered to pay a $23.6 million fine to Texas-based Mobile Telecommunications Technologies after being found guilty on Monday evening of infringing six patents. A federal jury in Marshall, Texas determined that Apple’s iPhone and several other Apple devices make unlawful use of the patented technologies, which relate to pagers and date back to the 1990s.

This marks the second recent trial in which Apple was accused of stealing pager technology — the first was in California last month and Apple escaped unscathed. More →
