The Moto X Style (The International One) Is Being Updated To Android 6.0 Too

Earlier this week Motorola began rolling out the official Marshmallow over-the-air update to the Moto X Pure Edition.

Google Now On Tap Updated To Allow For Easy Screenshots On Android 6.0

Taking screenshots has officially become a little easier for those of us who have a device running Android 6.0. An update has begun to roll out to the Google App that adds a share button to Google Now on tap, which takes a screenshot and allows you to immediately share it. This is great news for some who have been having issues taking screenshots on their 6P while using certain cases, and for those who have trouble pressing multiple buttons at once. Let's take a quick look at how this works, and how it compares to the regular way of doing things.

T-Mobile Gets Called Out By Large Labor Union Federation For Deceiving Customers, Abusive Debt Collection Practices, Failing To Pay ETFs, And More

In the tech press, it's easy for us to regurgitate the advertising material that all of the major carriers and companies want potential customers to hear. It's more challenging to hear the voices of the people who find themselves taken advantage of by corporate practices. This work generally falls to unions and advocacy groups that do the research and speak out on their behalf.

Change to Win, a federation of unions that claims to represent over 5.5 million workers, has recently issued a 27-page report called Unmasking the Un-Carrier along with a general summary that takes aim at T-Mobile.

[HoloYolo4EVA] Bug Watch: Some Users Are Frequently Seeing This Password Recovery Prompt When Using The Play Store

Ah Holo, how easily have you been forgotten! No sooner had Material Design been announced that we scrapped your vibrant black and blue, your grey boxes, your app tabs, and started championing white everywhere and animations. It's clear that Holo doesn't want to die, or someone at Google doesn't think Holo should be completely gone from Android, if only because it's good to see where you came from to appreciate the road you've been on. Like keeping that old photo of your acne-filled face or that baggy pair of pants that you used to wear before losing weight. It's great for reminiscing and comparing.
