Making It Mine: Galaxy S7 Edge (Video)

Gather ‘round, gather ‘round! The time has come to answer the age old question: What’s on your phone? I get this question A LOT, but I don’t answer it often since it changes so much. I thought I’d take a bit of a spin on it and also show you what I did to make a particular device (in this case the S7 Edge) really feel like my own. I’m convinced there’s a metric here. For now, I’ll call it the ‘make it work’ factor. This comes from my days living in NYC.

Every apartment has a ‘make it work’ factor.

Talisman: The Horus Heresy Puts The Popular Board Game In A Warhammer 40,000 Setting

Here's a little exercise for you: think of your favorite board game. Now add hulking space marines, chainsaw swords, and elaborate baroque spaceships. Try to imagine any possible way that this is not awesome. Monopoly would go faster if you could fill all that mortgage nonsense with epic infantry battles, and someone might actually play backgammon if you could call in an orbital strike. Until that wonderful day arrives, we have Talisman: The Horus Heresy, a re-working of Talisman within the popular sci-fi setting of Warhammer 40,000.

Now it's about to get even better. Uber is allowing other sites and apps to introduce their own branding and functionality into the core Uber experience, provided the user was directed to it through a deep link or ride reminder.

Uber has already quietly signed up a number of big names, with more undoubtedly to follow.

Messenger v1.8 Fixes A Major Crashing Bug On Android N And Adds Manual Override For Incorrectly Detected Countries [APK Download]

An update to Google's Messenger application rolled out yesterday afternoon. Like a lot of other updates lately, this one appears to be centered around clearing up bugs and issues rather than adding new features. For regular travelers or those that have some compatibility issues with their local carriers, there is now an option to override the automatic country detection the app currently performs. Those users on Android N can also look forward to a fix for a pretty critical bug that could cause Messenger to crash with a simple YouTube link.

Over the past years, Google has been unbundling various apps from the system and publishing them on the Play Store to allow for easier and faster changes that reach everyone without the need for a full firmware update. After the Google Calendar, Camera, Keyboard, and plenty of others, today's the day for the Calculator to graduate too.

Calculator is now available on the Play Store and that means updates, but also that you can download it on non Nexus devices (I have it on my LG G4 now).
