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).

"Modular" Smartphones Are Now The Official Gadget Gimmick Of 2016 (And Possibly Beyond)

When LG announced the modular G5 at MWC in 2016, we were all taken a bit aback. Admittedly, there was plenty of reason to hold judgment - it seemed possible that LG had actually done something interesting and innovative with a smartphone that hadn't quite been tried before, and gadget-lust is an easy feeling to succumb to in the face of something new and weird. It turns out that the G5's "friends" were basically DOA as a concept, though, and there has been little indication that consumer response to the idea is even existent, let alone positive.

Maestria, A Beautiful Puzzle Game, Is Now Free On The Play Store

I love puzzle games. The more I have to use my brain to solve a riddle, the prettier the graphics, and the simpler the story, the better. I can then lose a few minutes trying my hand at a new level or simply get completely drowned for hours on end, going through levels like my life depended on it.

Maestria tickles that side of my gaming addiction. It is exactly the kind of game I should stay away from if I want to be productive at all for the rest of the day. It is eerily similar to Monument Valley in its isometric graphics and pastel color scheme, but the puzzle mechanic is different.
