[Deal Alert] JBL Flip 3 on sale at $64 ($36 off MSRP) as an Amazon Gold Box daily deal


Amazon is running one of today's Gold Box deals on JBL's Flip 3 splashproof portable bluetooth speaker. These normally sell for a few pennies under $100, but for the next few hours, Amazon is selling them for $63.99, netting customers a 36% discount.

The Flip 3 is one of the most well-reviewed portable bluetooth speakers on the market, earning a 4.4 star rating from customers on Amazon.

Unsupported: The best Nexus 6 ROMs to check out in a post-update world

[Annoying] Play Music on Wear 2.0 does not support sideloading music from your phone

In Wear 2.0, Google is trying to make the watch more of a standalone device with its own version of the Play Store and apps that operate independent of your phone.

Fact Check goes global for Search and Google News results

The internet is a vast, wonderful, and sometimes dangerous place that allows for most people to find troves of information. Unfortunately, as we all know, not all of that is factually true. Back in October, Google introduced a method for publishers in certain countries to display a "Fact Check" tag next to their content in Search and News results. This signifies that the article had been verified as true by news and fact-checking organizations. The big announcement today is that this is rolling out globally in all languages.

Android platform distribution for April 2017 shows another solid gain for Nougat

No one is going to claim Android updates are perfect, but Google isn't hiding anything. As it does most months, it has just updated the developer dashboard with new platform distribution numbers. Nougat is still just picking up steam, but it had another solid month of growth. The combined share of 7.0 and 7.1 is at nearly 5%.
