Plastc joins the likes of Coin, declaring bankruptcy

Some of you might remember Plastc. They were a company that jumped on the re-programmable credit card train Coin and Google Wallet started in '13 and '12, respectively. They may have been a bit later to the game in 2014 after even Google had decided that it wasn't a good idea anymore, but they made the attempt. Later even the funding-successful Coin had to close shop due to delays, problems, and a general failure to properly keep up with the market. Unlike Coin, though, Plastc never managed to actually deliver on a product. And now just like its forebears, Plastc has decided it's time to die.

Even with multi-user support, Google Home can't create reminders or calendar appointments

Google announced multi-user support for Google Home earlier today, but it's only launching in the US right now. This is finally a chance for Google to rectify things and add all those features Home was lacking at launch, and indeed Google has included a few new features. We're still missing some big ones, though. You still cannot create a reminder or add events to your calendar.

The Galaxy S8 will have no external carrier branding, even on Verizon and AT&T

No matter how you feel about Samsung and the Galaxy S8/S8 Plus, you have to admit they're really, really pretty phones. The curved display and sleek frame are incredibly well-designed compared to most other devices, and the GS8 will stand out in one other unexpected way—there's no carrier branding. Even Verizon and AT&T have been persuaded not to stamp their logos all over the phones.

[Not dead yet] Paranoid Android teases Android O plans, maybe

This is a difficult article for me to write as I have to temper my enthusiasm with a heavy dose of skepticism. AOSPA is one of my all-time favorite ROMs, and the lack of releases since the super late Marshmallow builds last year has made me very sad. Even the merest rumor of a potential return to active development is enough to make me giddy, so the image they pushed on their G+ page that seems to imply plans for an Android O release has me quite excited. But, I have to remain doubtful, not just for the sake of our readers, but for my own sanity.

Sprint offering two-for-one deal on Galaxy S8, but beware the fine print

The Galaxy S8 is starting to trickle out to those who pre-ordered, but Sprint is offering what sounds like a very good deal for anyone still on the fence. Starting tomorrow, you can get two Galaxy S8 smartphones (not the Plus) for the price of one, which seems great. Like with all things Sprint lately, there's a ton of fine print that you need to factor in.

Saygus offers V Squared customers a free Snapdragon 835 upgrade because who even believes this anymore

Saygus is a company that, if nothing else, has provided us a rich source of content over the past two-plus years. They revealed their phone at CES 2015. Then it was delayed. And then it was delayed again. And again. In fact, the Saygus phone is essentially a running joke here at Android Police and with some of our commenters because, well, how can you not laugh at this point? Saygus announced the phone in Fall 2014.

Are we giving a probably-bad-actor who craves nothing more than attention what they want here? Sure. But no one believes what Saygus is peddling anymore - not anyone with a shred of ability to think critically.

Some users have been experiencing issues with backup on Google's Pixel devices, most notably backups of SMS, call history, and apps, although other accounts of all backup types failing have also been reported.
