Sony Announces Worldwide Android Lollipop Rollout For The Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, And Xperia Z3 Tablet

Xperia owners, watch out. Lollipops are raining from the sky and smashing straight into your screens. If you welcome this phenomenon, don't do anything. These lollipops have heat-seeking sensors and will find your devices wherever they lay. If you prefer KitKat, you can swat the intruders away, but you'll never get to experience the future changes in store for your Android device.

Sony has confirmed that it is launching lollipops at Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, and Z3 Tablet Compact devices all over the world (some of these updates were previously pushed out to smaller, test markets).

Taptu News Reader Service Shutting Down, Developers Recommend Feedly As A Replacement

Do you use Taptu to read news and entertainment stories? Statistically speaking, the answer is no - we haven't even written a single story on the aggregator in over four years. Taptu is, or more accurately was, a sort of curated platform that pulled news and other stories from both a user's own social networks and a series of pre-made topical feeds. According to messages being sent to users of the app, the entire service will shut down tomorrow, March 31st.

T-Mobile Revamps Its Coverage Maps, Now Relies On Real-Time Customer Data For Improved Accuracy

So here's a fun fact: when you look at a carrier's coverage map, you're actually seeing its best guess as to where coverage is strong/weak/dead/etc. It's basically a theoretical map – it's where they should have coverage (but no promises are being made).

2015-03-30_09h50_41

T-Mobile, once again priding itself on being "uncarrier," is changing the way it does its coverage maps, and it actually makes a lot of sense. Instead of just using guesswork to let customers see their coverage area, it's crowdsourcing using real-time customer data.

LG G2 On Verizon Wireless Receives OTA Update With Android Lollipop

The benefit of buying a flagship, aside from solid specs, is the likelihood of continuing to receive updates after the predecessor has launched. Carriers and manufacturers generally try to keep you current just long enough to make it through a two-year contract without complaining. So now we're seeing the year and a half old LG G2 on Verizon Wireless updated to Android 5.0.

Vine Gets Higher-Quality 720p Video Capability, Coming To Android "Soon"

Vine is... OK, let's be clear here: Vine is kind of useless. There's literally nothing you can do with Vine that you can't already do with YouTube, unless you count an arbitrary 6.5-second time limit. That being said, there's no reason that Twitter can't improve its property, and it has done just that by boosting the video quality.

Bluetooth And Wi-Fi Certifications Point To A Second-Gen NVIDIA SHIELD Portable

The original NVIDIA SHIELD (before the Tablet or the set-top box, so just called "SHIELD" at the time) was a surprise revelation at CES 2013. This high-powered Android device with an Xbox-style controller and a flip-up screen was unlike anything we had seen before, and though it never became a runaway hit, many (including yours truly) have been hoping that NVIDIA would update the design in addition to its more conventional SHIELD entries.
