Of course, in the context of email, the question becomes: What does “fix” even mean and who will finally pull it off?

There are dozens of companies that have taken a crack at “fixing” email, and some have done a better job than others. None have managed to solve all of our email woes, of course, but there are a handful of companies that have actually managed to launch fairly revolutionary email solutions.

And if you haven’t yet tried them out, you really should. More →

Google just agreed to a major settlement with an Apple-backed patent consortium

Reuters reports that yet another major patent lawsuit is now in the books after Google agreed to settle with Rockstar, a patent consortium with backers that include Apple, Microsoft, BlackBerry and Sony.

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 →

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

By on November 19, 2014 at 10:20 AM.

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 →

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 →
