Adult Swim's Tofu Hunter Opens Our Eyes To The Violence Behind Veganism

I'm a vegetarian. Okay, pescetarian. Since I do occasionally eat fish, I'm aware that some animals have to die to sustain my current diet. But I did not know that was also the case when I put tofu in my stir fry. Fortunately, Adult Swim Games has opened my eyes. In Tofu Hunter, I learned that even when I'm not eating meat, that doesn't mean some poor creature wasn't gunned down to put food on my plate.

'OK, Google' Everywhere Is Broken On The Galaxy S6 And S6 Edge, And Nobody Seems To Know Why

Have a Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge? Great! Want to use OK Google's hotword functionality from anywhere but the Google app or the Google Now launcher? Not great!

You see, for the past month or so since the S6 launched, there's been a slight issue with OK Google Everywhere on the Galaxy S6. Specifically, it just stops working completely. All the options except "From the Google app" disappear, voice model training goes away, and you can only use the 'OK, Google' hotword from the Google app or the Google Now Launcher (which is, essentially, the Google app).

[Lame] Razer's Forge Android TV Launches Without Netflix Support, According To Early Buyers

Razer's Forge TV/console/box thing, which runs Android TV, has started shipping to pre-order buyers, and they're not liking what they find once they kick back to watch some Netflix... because they can't.

Attempting to find Netflix on the Play Store is a no go, casting from your connected phone won't work, and even sideloading the Android TV Netflix v2 APK (and even with rooting and build.prop edits) won't get you around this issue. The only solution is to sideload the standard phone APK, which then reverts to 480p only mode and uses the tablet UI, which is of course terrible on a TV.

Sprint International Value Roaming Expands To Colombia, Denmark, Honduras, Ireland, Italy, Paraguay, And Sweden

Sprint is so good, you can take it with you when you leave the country. Okay, maybe its service isn't the best. Whatever. It's cheap. That's why you signed up, right?

Now when you travel to Colombia, Denmark, Honduras, Ireland, Italy, Paraguay, or Sweden with an International Value Roaming plan, you can roam data for free. You're limited to 2G speeds and might not always be able to find a connection, but again, it's free. If you do need faster connectivity, you can get 3G for the not-at-all-tempting prices of $15-$50 for 100-500MB of data that last up to fourteen days.

[Update: OTA URL] Android Wear 5.1.1 Begins Its Rollout To Watches Starting With The Asus ZenWatch

Google's Self-Driving Prototype Cars Will Hit The Roads Of San Francisco Starting This Summer

Google's self-driving cars have come a long way since the days when they were Lexus SUVs stuffed with electronics. Halfway through last year the company unveiled an adorable prototype car that lacked a steering wheel and pedals. By December, the vehicle was fully functional. Models have spent the time since driving around tracks in Google test facilities.

Now they're ready to hit the streets of San Francisco at a brisk 25mph.

GooglePrototypeSelfDrivingCar

These new prototypes use the same software that powers Google's existing fleet of self-driving vehicles. Those cars have logged nearly a million autonomous hours on the road. Google's math comes out to nearly 10,000 miles spent driving a week, which it says equals 75 years of typical American adult driving experience.
