LG Announces New Hub For Managing Its SmartThinQ Appliances And Other Smart Home Gadgets

There are many ways you could go about filling your home with connected devices. You can pick a standard like ZigBee or Z-Wave and stick to it. You could try looking for anything that mentions SmartThings compatibility on the page. Or you could buy all of your products from a single company. That's the approach LG would like you to take.

Like Samsung, LG has produced fridges, kitchen ranges, washing machines, and dryers with touchscreens and "smart" features. At this year's CES it's introducing a new hub that can help you keep up with those appliances.

Crowdfunded Console OS Accused Of 'Stealing' Android-x86 Project's Open Source Code

The world of open source collaborative projects can be murky at times, and throwing crowdfunding into the mix doesn't make it any clearer. This odd intersection is the source of much drama in the small but passionate community that wants to see Android become as widespread on the desktop as it is on mobile. Members of the open source development team over at the Android-x86 Project, which aims to make Android operable on standard PC hardware, claim that Kickstarter project Console OS has "stolen" Android x86 code and presented it, at least in part, as its own creation.

This is where things start to get complicated.

LG Announces The G Pad II 8.3 LTE With A Stylus And Full-Sized USB Port, But Only For Korea At The Moment

Back in August LG announced new versions of its G Pad tablet in both 8 and 10-inch varieties. Aside from a couple of features like an integrated stylus on the former, they weren't all that interesting, just middling updates of the previous budget-focused models. Even when one of them showed up in the US for a little carrier-branded fun, it was met with a big fat "meh." The sequel to the G Pad 8.3, which was actually quite nice when it launched back in 2013, is likewise underwhelming.

LG announced the G Pad II LTE for its home market of South Korea yesterday.

WSJ: Google Is Building Another Messaging Service... With Chatbots [And Blackjack, And Hookers]

Google, for all its skill in the realms of mobile search, advertising, email, and even operating systems, has never been particularly good at the social thing. Even now, I suspect, someone at Google is fuming at the notion that the company "isn't very good" at messaging or social networks and pointing animatedly at the tens of millions of Google+ and Hangouts users. The problem is and has always been that for whatever success Google has had in social and messaging platforms, it is constantly undercut by the actions of Google itself that say otherwise. There is near-yearly reworking, redesigning, or branching off of these products in ways that very strongly suggest they aren't getting the results Google's Alphabet overlords consider acceptable.

The Sprint LG G4 Starts Getting An Update To Android 6.0 Marshmallow

When Google released the Marshmallow source code, many manufacturers were quick to jump on the news and start announcing updates to their flagships. In mid-October, LG started rolling out the android OTA in Poland first as a test, with promises to expand to other countries and operators later.

Now that update is ready for the US and Sprint is the first operator to get it. On its support page for the device, Sprint says the update was available yesterday, December 17th. It's rolling out as software version LS991ZV9 with Marshmallow and Sprint Global Roaming. There'll be a lot waiting for you when you jump from Lollipop 5.1 to Marshmallow 6.0, including app permissions, the new floating text selection toolbar with options to expand it through Google Translate or Wikipedia, better external storage integration that should be handy with the G4's MicroSD slot, and so much more.

Musixmatch Adds Spotify Connect, Streams All Your Playlists With Lyrics On Top

Musixmatch was known for the longest time as a lyrics application that found the words to a song you're listening to and displayed them in rhythm with the music. But Musixmatch has grown beyond that and over the past couple of years has become one of the most interesting music players on Android with local music playback, Chromecast support, and a nice Material Design interface. It is moving one step further now with the addition of Spotify.

If you have a premium Spotify account, you'll be able to use Connect to get all of your music inside Musixmatch. This includes access to all of your playlists and tracks just like you'd find them inside Spotify's app.

Editorial: Remember The Saygus Phone? It Still Hasn't Shipped, And Should Be A "Pre-Order" Lesson To All Of Us

When the Saygus V2 smartphone (or "V Squared") was announced back in January of this year at CES, it was not particularly premium, it was not particularly interesting, and it didn't even seem especially impractical to build. It was a high-end-ish Android smartphone with dual microSD slots that allowed Saygus to claim it could have up to 464GB of storage using two 200GB SanDisk microSD cards coupled with the phone's 64GB of internal NAND.
