Huawei Announces Via Bizarrely Upbeat Blog Post That The Four-Month-Old US Ascend Mate2 Won't Be Getting A KitKat Update

Buyers of the Huawei Ascend Mate2 in the US are fuming today over news that there won't be a KitKat update for this device. It's not unusual for older devices to be left in the dust, but the Mate2 was announced in early 2014 and only went on sale for US consumers in June of this year. Huawei has shown some interest in breaking into the US market as of late, but the Chinese OEM is going to have trouble if this is the kind of support we can expect.

[Deal Alert] Get $115 Worth Of Apps And Games For Free On The Amazon Appstore, Including Plex, Unpossible, And Boxer Pro

Amazon seems rather ecstatic about giving its users a lot of free software lately. Not content with one free app of the day, the Appstore multiplied that by forty, got the total savings over a Franklin and Hamilton combined, and is giving you until Saturday to grab as many as you want. Granted, some of the apps and games were previously offered during one of the store's daily deals, but this is a good opportunity to catch up if you missed them earlier.

[Update: UGH] Nexus 6 Pre-Orders Are Live In The US Google Play Store (For Some), Bank Accounts Everywhere Tremble In Fear

Update, 10:30PM CST: Wow, it looks like Google really dropped the ball on this one. While previous Play Store launches have been problematic, today's Nexus 6 pre-order has left the vast majority of prospective buyers high and dry. Google seems to have sold out of a low initial stock almost instantly, and there was never a single point in the afternoon where you could reliably go to the Play Store and pay for a phone.

[Update: Gone] New Moto 360 Colors Land On Amazon With Metal Bands, Including A Slimmer 18mm 'Champagne' Option

Update: As commenter JT3 points out, it looks like all the new color options introduced today aren't shipping for at least a month, despite being sold immediately. That includes the separate metal bands. Bummer.

Update 2: ...aaaaand they're gone. The new colors and band listings have been removed from Amazon, presumably to be added back at some point. At least you can drool at the photos below between now and then.

Oppo Announces The 4.85mm Thin R5 And The N3 With A Motorized Selfie-Cam, Both Coming In December

Chinese manufacturer Oppo has been making a name for itself thanks to some unconventional designs on top solid hardware (on paper, at least). The latest round of upgrades for the company's product lines are novel, to be certain: the new Oppo R5 is the latest phone to steal the coveted "world's thinnest" title, and the N3 uses a new rotating camera that's positively unique. But do these features actually make the phones desirable, or are they mere gimmicks?

Fuhu Nabi Big Tab HD Lightning Review: Because Sometimes Bigger Actually Is Better

Let's talk about massively huge tablets. When's the last time you said to yourself, "you know, I sure wish Google would make a Nexus 20...?" Probably never. You know why? Because as adults, we want tablets to be portable, utilitarian devices. Kids, though? Those crazy little humans don't care about utility or portability. They only care about maximum fun. So really, it only makes sense that a bigger screen = more funnerer, right?

Google Stars Appears To Be Back As 'Bookmark Manager' For Chrome

We've been seeing bits and pieces (and fully functional prototypes) of Google Stars for a long time now. The tool, which for now acts as a replacement for Chrome's bookmark manager, has been in development even longer, but it looks like the Chrome extension might finally be ready to roll (assuming it doesn't get pulled again) as Google released "Bookmark Manager" to the Chrome Web Store earlier today.

Despite the new name, the extension takes over chrome://bookmarks just as before, with options to organize bookmarks into folders, give those folders descriptions, and even share folders with others.

Google Docs, Sheets, And Slides All Updated With 'Incoming' In Sidebar, New Hamburger Menu Icon, And More [APK Download]

Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides have all received some love today, though the visual changes here are minor. For the most part, these apps were already all material-ed up, and while this update does dot some i's and cross some t's, it doesn't quite leave us satisfied. Fortunately that's not all there is to see here.

What's New

Let's get the biggest visual tweak out of the way first. Yes, Google has changed the hamburger menu icon in the action bar.
