If there's one thing the last few months have taught us, it's that savvy consumers need never pay full price for a Samsung flagship. Hardly a week goes by when we don't see some new low on the Galaxy S7 or its Edgy brother, and this week's deal is courtesy of eBay.

The recently announced Google assistant is on course to join the party, promising to bring many of these technologies together to deliver something not unlike the computer from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The layoffs most heavily impact the open source arm of the Android ROM-gone-startup, which may be eliminated entirely (not CyanogenMod itself, just the people at Cyanogen Inc. Read More
