Twitter Will Soon Stop Counting @Names In Replies And Media Attachments Against 140 Character Limit

Since its founding, Twitter's 140 character tweet limit has been sacrosanct. That won't be the case in a few months, though. Twitter has announced a plan to exempt certain @names and media links from the character count. Retweets and the way conversations are broadcast will also change. It's actually a bit complicated.

UE ROLL 2 Launch Review: Same Look, Better Performance

The UE ROLL was one of the most interesting new Bluetooth speakers launched last year. With a waterproof (IPX7), disc-shaped body, and an attached bungee cord, the ROLL was marketed as a perfect companion for any adventure, rain or shine. Cam was a big fan of the device and had almost no complaints in his review.

Ultimate Ears is back at again this year with an update to the original ROLL. It's called the UE ROLL 2 ($99), and as you might expect, it's even better.

NVIDIA Finally Rolls Android 6.0.1 Out To The LTE SHIELD Tablet In The US

NVIDIA sent out the first Marshmallow update to the SHIELD Tablet in late 2015 with the SHIELD K1 OTA. It said at the time that the original SHIELD would be updated in early 2016.

Google Docs, Sheets, And Slides Updates Automatically Download Recently Opened Files For Offline Editing [APK Download]

The problem of having files stored in the cloud is that they're not accessible when you're offline. For a while now, Google has been attempting to change this by making files on Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides available to download for offline viewing or editing. Note: Slides has not rolled out yet, but we'll let you know when it does.

With the latest update to the three apps, any file that has recently been opened will be downloaded to your device. If you lose your internet connection, this file will be available offline. The changes you make will then be synced back once you've got an internet connection.

LG's Official Bootloader Unlock Tool Adds The LG V10 For Europe (Except France)

Do you like you the LG V10's hardware but wish you can install a different ROM on it? The first step to that is by unlocking your phone's bootloader. In LG phones, this has been notoriously difficult because the company locks its bootloaders and workarounds are either non-existent or super complicated.

What LG has been offering though, in the past year, is an official page to help you unlock the bootloader on the European G4 and G5, and now it's adding the LG V10 for Europe. But only on Marshmallow — this doesn't work if you're still on Lollipop. Oh and there's a clear exception for France, because as far as I can tell the phone wasn't officially released in the country.

AT&T Is Simplifying Phone Financing With Just Two Plan Options (12 And 24 Month Upgrades) Starting June 9

AT&T's existing "Next" plans offer the option to upgrade after a certain amount of the device has been paid off, but there are four different versions and the naming can be confusing. For example, Next 24 is actually a 30-month pay-off schedule with an upgrade at 24 months. Well, AT&T has announced it's cutting the options down to just two, and it's adding a new Next Every Year plan for annual upgrades.
