AT&T Has The LG Watch Urbane 2 LTE Available For Pre-Order Again At $359.99 Or $199.99 With Contract

Things did not go as planned for LG with the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition, which was originally supposed to come out late last year. A hardware defect caused the company to halt the release and bring the watch back to the drawing board. Now, it's ready to go again and AT&T will let you pre-order one right now.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies Are Available For The AT&T And Sprint Galaxy S4, Verizon HTC One M9, And Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE

CyanogenMod's maintainers are on an everlasting quest to conquer the software update war against pesky smartphone manufacturers who drop support way too soon for most of their devices. For instance, Samsung has been struggling to release Marshmallow for the two-year old Galaxy S5, but the CyanogenMod folks are ready to roll Android 6.0's software to an even older flagship: the three-year old Galaxy S4.

In this case, the CM 13 nightlies are available for the AT&T and Sprint versions of the Galaxy S4 (jflteatt and jfltespr respectively). The international S4 got it a couple of months ago, but other carriers and variants are still stuck on CM 11 and CM 12.1.

[Deal Alert] Forget The LG G5, My Bargain-Loving Readers, You Can Buy A New Unlocked G4 For Just $289.99

The LG G5 has some cool stuff going on with it. It has those swappable battery packs that lend the phone new powers, a powerful processor, QC 3.0 with a USB Type C plug, dual rear cameras, and a host of funky accessories. The one thing it doesn't have is a compelling price tag (it's also dog-ugly IMO). I'll tell you what does have a great price though, the unlocked LG G4 that's on sale right now on eBay for a paltry $289.99. That's less than half the price of the G5 for those of you keeping score.

If value is the most important factor in your phone-buying decision, then it's hard to find many more enticing options than the G4.

[Update: Sprint] Verizon Is Now Offering Buy-One-Get-One-Free On The Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge

Following on the heels of other carriers, Verizon has now announced its own deal for customers looking to hook themselves, and someone else, up with either a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge. If this is you, then you can head on over to Verizon's website to get down to business.

Judging from the promo rules, it works similar to other BOGO offers where you go under a payment plan on both devices, then you get a prepaid card for the full retail price of one of the phones, or about $792, within 8-10 weeks.

[Weekend Poll] Are You Considering Purchasing An LG G5?

The LG G5 comes into 2016 the unabashed underdog to Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. While Samsung is refining its lineup - based on a largely successful reimagining in the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge+ of last year - with more practical benefits this time around (better camera, much better battery life), LG's smartphone identity seems more than a bit confused.

Last year's V10 was very successful with owners, especially those who didn't find what they wanted in the G4 (most people I've talked to with a V10 love it), but that phone doesn't quite ring as mainstream - it's a powerhouse of specifications and general capability.

Google Now Lets You Block Cards From Showing Specific News Sources, Not Just Previously Visited Sites

Google is on a roll with the app-less updates this week. After trialing a new homescreen weather shortcut for a small amount of users a few days ago, users have been noticing that there is a new feature in Google Now to block any site from showing up in the 'Stories to read' section. Therefore, if you see a card you'd rather not see, it can now be banished and will go back to whence it came.

Blocking sites in Now has been around for a while, but only for select cards; namely the ones that specifically show up for sites you've visited before. As of the update, likely to be a server-side rollout, the blocking ability has been upgraded to apply to any card.

Photos v1.16 Includes Hints Of A Burst Mode Manager, Comment Sections, And Something About Albums With Maps [APK Teardown]

The latest update to Photos was fairly light on new features, but that's not always what makes an update interesting. Sometimes the most exciting part about a new release is seeing the ingredients that will make up the next great iteration. This update is packed with clues about new things in the pipeline including support for comments, a new screen to manage shots taken in burst mode, and a feature on shared albums that will suggest links to locations around the world.

[Deal Alert] Seek Thermal And Thermal XR Imaging Cameras Are Down About 30% On Ebay, Their Lowest Price Yet

When David reviewed the Seek Thermal imaging camera, I was impressed by the fact that you could now take thermal images with your smartphone and a little accessory. It sounded super cool, but I couldn't imagine why I'd use something like this. That is until we had a pipe burst in our upstairs neighbor's floor, causing a semi flood in our kitchen. I then remembered that something like the Seek could help us find the broken pipe easier, faster, and with less damage. The price, however, was still one big hurdle in the way. Unless you were a plumber, why would you pay over $250 for a gadget that you're only likely to use a couple of times in your entire lifetime?

Android N Feature Spotlight: Fast Scroll Through The Apps List In Settings

Android N's preview has been released for about 10 days and it even received its first update, yet here we are still uncovering little tidbits about this upcoming version of our favorite OS. This one change is far from being a major feature. It is, however, a nice improvement over M, especially if you were the kind to frequently dig into your Settings for the Apps section.

In Android Mashmallow, when you open Settings > Apps, you can scroll through the long list (if you're anything like us and you install dozens of apps) of applications on your device. You can't activate a fast scroll action like the one in the Contacts list for example.
