Real-Time Mobile Comments Are Now Supported In Google Docs, Sheets, And Slides Across Both Android And iOS

Collaborative features are a big part of the draw to Google's online office suite. Part of this is the ability for multiple people to edit documents from two locations at once. Since this can get hectic really fast, another important part is being able to communicate using comments. Now mobile comments look the same across Android and iOS in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Whichever app you're using, you can communicate in real-time.

Nexus 6P And Nexus 5X Are €100 And €80 Off, Respectively, Until February 12

Remember when everyone was up in arms because the Nexus 6P and 5X were so expensive outside North America? It turns out that Google has decided to quietly fix that, at least in some parts of the world. On the Google Store, the Nexus 5X, which initially launched for €479 and then came down to €429 in the Eurozone, is now starting at just €349, while the Nexus 6P, priced at €649 back in September, now begins at €549. The prices in Italy are still €50 more expensive for every model than the rest of the Eurozone, and the price increments for each storage tier are the same as before.

[Update: Winners] Like Wallpapers? We Have 50 Backdrops Pro Codes To Give Away

A couple of weeks ago, Google gave developers a way to offer promo codes for their apps. Shortly after, we teamed up with the developer of LocalCast to hand out 50 promo codes for the premium version of the app, which was a great success. Today, we’re teaming up with the dev behind Backdrops, a popular wallpaper app, to give out 50 codes for Backdrops Pro. Let’s go.

First off, if you haven’t tried Backdrops, I feel bad for you, son. It’s essentially a premier way to find new wallpapers on Android, and the majority of the content there is exclusive so you won’t get it anywhere else.

While many users of CyanogenMod have moved on to the nightly Marshmallow-based CM13 releases, the more stable snapshot builds are still on CM12.1 (Lollipop). It's been more than two months since we got a new snapshot build, but now one is starting to roll out.

Huawei Ascend Mate 2 (Many Left Behind On Jelly Bean) Gets Android Marshmallow Thanks To CyanogenMod 13

When a custom ROM pops up for a device that already has support, it's like watching another politician join an election. You have two options before you, which way do you go? Are you a pragmatist, ideologically driven, or someone who just wants to tinker around?

But when a phone has been neglected for years, the ROM feels more like a savior. For the Huawei Ascend Mate 2, CyanogenMod has stepped into that role.

T-Mobile Offers Buy One, Get One Half Off Prices On Samsung And LG Flagship Phones, But Not On The Web

Cars. Houses. Contracted electronics. These are items for which the old "buy one, get one" scheme rarely works. But since T-Mobile has ostensibly given up cellular contracts, it makes a sort of sense... at least if you're buying phones for more than one person on the same plan. The carrier is now offering a buy one, get one 50% off discount on all versions of the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5, the LG G4, and the LG V10, as well as the latest two generations of iPhones.

All colors and capacities sold by T-Mobile are eligible, and you can purchase up to 12 phones at a time(!) and apply the discounts.

The 'Until Next Alarm' Bug In Do Not Disturb Mode Returns, Will Probably Be There Until Google Patches It

Well this is frustrating. The bug that caused the "Until Next Alarm" function of Android's Do Not Disturb mode to disappear, which manifested itself in late December on a number of Android phones running Lollipop 5.1 and later, is back. The timing of the month seems more than coincidental. Since the problem manifested late in December, presumably Google didn't have time to implement a fix in the latest round of scheduled Android updates.

It looks like this will keep occurring at the tail end of the month until Google fixes it - hopefully in the latest round of Nexus updates.
