[Update: Nexus 9 LTE] OTA Updates Incoming For Nexus Devices To Fix Vulnerability In Stagefright

Last week, Google released factory images for every actively-supported Nexus except the Nexus 7 2013 LTE and Nexus Player. These images were for a new build, LMY48I, intended to patch the recently outed vulnerability that was found in Stagefright.

Today, it appears the OTAs are beginning to hit the masses, but be warned, all these do is patch Stagefright. They contain no other fixes of any kind, so if there's some problem with your device you're hoping to have solved with this update, it's not going to happen.

Amazon is pulling out all the stops to entice you to use its Appstore for Android.

Killing Floor: Calamity, A Top-Down Adaptation Of The Popular First Person Shooter, Comes To Google Play

Killing Floor is exactly what it sounds like. Okay, no, it's not a game about a floor that eats everything it touches. We call that game hot lava, and it's much less gruesome than this one. No, Killing Floor is a first person shooter where you kill everything on the same floor as you that looks like it might be a zombie. Sure, it may actually be the result of a failed cloning experiment, but if it looks like a zombie and sounds like a zombie, shoot it.

Killing Floor: Calamity is a twin-stick version made for mobile devices. It's still a co-op experience like the Steam version that gamers fawned over back in 2009.

Hands On With The Galaxy Note 5 And S6 Edge+

Today, as we expected it would, Samsung announced two new phones: the Galaxy Note 5, and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ (what a name). We were at the event and spent a few brief moments with each of the devices, got some impressions, and took some photos. So naturally it's time to talk hands-on with the Note 5 and Edge+.

If there's a main takeaway from my time handling these two devices, it's that they were what I expected. That's not a bad thing, though - Samsung has carried over the interesting refreshed design language of the S6 and S6 Edge to the new phones - the Edge+ is curved on the front, and the Note 5 is curved on the back.
