Kodi Media Center Is Getting A New Look In Version 17, Available Now In Nightly Builds

Looking to turn your Android device into a media center? If you plan on streaming everything over the Internet, there's Plex. If not, there's Kodi, the open source project formerly known as XBMC.

Kodi has looked the same since before its name change, sporting a theme it's had back when Android only dreamed of making its way into millions of households. There were other looks to pick from, but it's the default that sticks in our heads as the Kodi experience. And it's the default that the development team plans to change.

Bloatastic Update To The ASUS Zenfone Selfie Brings A Bunch Of New Crapware And Cheetah Mobile, Of Course

I'm pretty sure something was lost in translation between the different reviews of ASUS' more recent generations of phones and the company's software development team. Everyone has lamented the high customization of ZenUI, the software layer that ASUS has slapped on top of Android, and its endless list of pre-installed and useless apps. On our own team, different writers unanimously pointed to the software as the major drawback for the Zenfone 2, Zenfone 2E, Zenpad S 8.0, Zenfone Selfie, and Zenfone 2 Laser. So what's ASUS to do to fix that?

Add more bloat. For realsies. That's what's happening with the latest update to the Zenfone Selfie, as if the phone wasn't full of preloaded crapware already.

Marshmallow Starts Rolling Out To The International LG V10 In Turkey

LG's current portfolio of smartphones isn't that big, yet the company still struggles to keep even its flagships updated to the latest Android version. Take the G4 for example. The company announced Marshmallow would begin seeding to the device way back in October in Poland, but it took a lot longer to graduate to full roll-out. Sprint had it in December, US Cellular in January, while AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and the international variants got it in February. That was a gruesome wait, but it doesn't even compare to the LG V10.

We're just now hearing about the first instance of an OTA update rolling to the V10, and that's hitting the international variant for users in Turkey.

A Nasty Zenfone 2 Bug Is Gobbling Up Gigabytes Of Storage With Giant Log Files

A number of Zenfone 2 owners have been making oddly similar complaints about a lack of storage space, and it looks like this isn't a case of poor management on their part.

[Deal Alert] Black Moto 360 Sport Temporarily Drops To $248 On Amazon - About $50 Off

The Moto 360 Sport is a lot like the standard second gen device, only with a silicone strap and a display with greater outdoor visibility. Some people, myself included, think that this means it should sell for less than the regular version of the watch which is outfitted with more premium materials.

Well, Motorolla may not agree with that idea, but Amazon is apparently on board with it because the price on the black model of the 360 Sport just dropped more than 50 bucks to $248.27. This is not an announced sale and may be Amazon's way of clearing a little extra inventory.
