If case you don't remember, Google announced Helpouts back in August. It's a different take on Hangouts where experts can make their assistance available via a video chat session for a fee or free of charge. Google has been laying the groundwork for a public rollout of the service, but no dates have been made official. We've been passed some information by a trusted source that says November 5th is the big day – that's just one week away.

Remember Phonebloks and how we all had a good laugh about how unworkable and idealistic it was? It turns out Motorola has been working on a similar project for the last year, and it's called Project Ara. This is really happening.

Google still hasn't said anything official, but the Nexus 5 is clearly ready for launch. Canadian carrier Wind Mobile has just put up its Nexus 5 pre-registration page on Facebook so interested parties can get on the list to be notified (at some point). Along with the form, we get a nice spec list, which confirms a few things about this device.

Update: All the images posted on Google+ have now been removed. We've still got the veggie image and EXIF info embedded below.

If you believe the rumor mill, the Nexus 5 is going to be announced in mere days, and we know that many Googlers are carrying the devices around. It was only a matter of time before some of them forgot to scrub their EXIF data. Several images taken with the Nexus 5 have been spotted, but some have already been pulled.

One of the UK's largest and most unfortunately named phone sellers, Carphone Warehouse, is apparently fully stocked with the still unannounced Nexus 5. The leaked screen shows 1500 units of the white Nexus 5 in stock, but there are allegedly 1500 black units as well.

By all accounts, the Galaxy Gear isn't doing spectacularly well. Samsung is still busy adding support for its smart watch to devices other than the Note 3, and the device itself is not without its foibles. Still, your choices are limited when it comes to smart watches, so you might as well save 20 bucks.

The Galaxy Gear has a 1.63-inch AMOLED screen with support for catching your Android notifications and telling you what's up (sometimes) without looking at the phone.

It's been rumored, it's been leaked, and now it's official – the LG G Flex is coming to South Korean carriers next month. The rest of the world? Maybe never. The G Flex is very much the phone that's been popping up online, with the top-to-bottom banana curve and big 6-inch OLED screen. There's a bit more detail about the inside post-announcement, though.

The G Flex weighs in at 177g, which isn't bad for a 6-inch screen.

If you're often hitting the trail, en route for parts unknown, the TripIt app/service might be a thing you're familiar with. This is a way to keep your flights, reservations, and everything else straight when you're on the road. The app has just gotten a big update to make that even easier.
