Motorola took the premium materials one step further this year with the option to buy a Moto X clad in premium Horween leather, then someone at Verizon thought it would be cool to slap some football leather on it. The result, as you can see below is kind of ugly. Maybe it looks nicer in real life?

The Civilization games on PC have consistently been the gold standard for 4X strategy, and the abbreviated Revolution versions for iOS have been widely praised for successfully distilling that formula for a mobile device. We didn't see the first Civ Rev on Android, but the sequel has just launched in the Play Store. Civilization Revolution 2 can be yours right now, but it comes with a hefty price tag.

It's common for Google to drop a few accessories in the Play Store each time a new Nexus comes out, but they often don't ship until at least a few weeks after the device itself. Maybe by the time you get your hands on a Nexus 6 the newly listed cases (by Case Mate) will be shipping. The folio and clear case for Motorola's first Nexus are in the Play Store, but you can't order yet.

You might recall that Android 4.4 added support for native screen recording, but it was a very developer-oriented tool that required you to plug the device into a computer and use ADB to control the capture. Some root-only apps came about that made use of that system sans USB cable, but Android 5.0 adds an API for screen recording that doesn't require root. We're still in the early days, but it looks like there's one less reason to root now.

If you follow Artem on Google+ or check Reddit, you probably saw him discussing the likelihood that Google has delayed updating Nexus devices to Android 5.0. This was originally slated to begin November 3rd, but now the date we're hearing is November 12th. There's no official word, but it looks like a particularly troublesome WiFi bug in the developer preview might be to blame.
