[Flash All The Things] May 2016 Marshmallow Nexus And Pixel C OTA Roundup

This month's Android security updates are rolling out, but they may be taking their time to get to your device. If you're too impatient, you can grab the full factory image and flash it or you can just download these smaller OTA files and sideload them. Here are the links you need and if you want to see the changelog before you head out, we've got you covered as well.

Piper's Home Security System Gets IFTTT Integration And A Brand New Android App

I love crowdfunding projects that work well, especially when the product delivers relatively on time and with most of the features working as promised. Piper's home monitoring / security system is one of these success stories, but despite the product's hardware being great, I have been letdown by its poorly designed software and that didn't change since September 2014 when I first reviewed it. But Piper has been growing up in the meantime, releasing a night vision hardware version, adding Life360 integration, and offering several accessories like sensors and lights, and now it's ready to graduate its software and automation too.

[Deal Alert] 128GB Sony MicroSD Card On Sale For $33.50 At Amazon, 32GB For $9

Amazon has Sony memory cards on sale today and the 128GB and 32GB cards are both great values. Right now you can pick up the 128GB card for $33.50 and just $9 will buy you the 32GB chip. Not a bad price, not bad at all.

Both cards are UHS-1 with up to 70MB/s transfer rates. They aren't the fastest cards on the market, but will work fine for storing media on your phone or tablet. The cards are eligible for free Prime shipping.

I'm reaching for something else to tell you about this deal that is new or original and I'm coming up blank.

FCC And FTC Join Forces To Investigate Slow And Missing Security Updates On Mobile Devices

Most of the mobile devices sold in the US have to wait a long while for security updates to be developed and deployed, and that's just if you're lucky enough to get one. Most phones don't come with any guarantee of security updates, and government regulators are starting to wonder why. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) are on the case.

PayPal Will End Purchase Protection Refunds For Crowdfunding Backers, Because Duh

Have you ever been part of a crowdfunding campaign gone wrong? No doubt some of you have, and some of you may well have contributed to such campaigns through PayPal for a reason that, until now, made it quite handy in the event of such a misfortune: purchase (formerly buyer) protection. PayPal's purchase protection basically is a "guarantee" that if you buy something through PayPal and never receive it, PayPal will reimburse you the cost of your purchase. So, instead of making you play a never-ending dispute resolution game of cat and mouse with an unresponsive - or in this case, likely non-liquid-asset-possessing - seller, you just get the money back, and PayPal can choose to go after the merchant.

Google, This Should Be The Gold Standard Of Changelogs—Please Do It More

There's this thing Google does with app updates. Or rather, maybe I should say doesn't do. And that's tell us what has actually changed.

You see, Google likes to roll updates out in stages. This makes sense. If there's a problem with an update, the company can halt the rollout without impacting as many people.

The thing is, Google doesn't typically update the changelog until the rollout is complete and everyone has received the latest version. This is a process that can take a couple of weeks.

Users who receive the update early on have to guess what's new, or come to us and hope that we've already done so (which we often do using the help of our readers—it's a very circular process).

[Deal Alert] Jaybird X2 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Going For As Low As $113 On Amazon

There are earbuds, and then there are earbuds. I'm not sure what I mean by that, but I do know Jaybird's X2 wireless Bluetooth earbuds are solidly in the latter category. They may cost as much as a budget phone, but they provide your ears with the kind of luxury treatment not commonly experienced by mortal man.
