Google's Android Wear site is a great place to get started learning about the operating system for your wrist, from the different watches you can buy to the features available to you, the apps you can use to make even more use of it, and the watchfaces and bands that help you customize the look even further.
The site just got an overhaul that puts visuals first and makes the entire experience even more interactive. Specifically, the different sections of Try these apps are now dynamic, changing the screenshot on the watch as you hover over the icons to show you exactly what to expect from each application.

Oh man. It's you again. So, you didn't like that Nexus 6P deal I just posted. Too big? Too expensive? Too metal? Well, I've got another deal for you that should make you happy. This time it's on the Nexus 5X, and it's only the best price I've ever seen on the 32GB model (that is, without signing up for Project Fi).
B&H has the White Nexus 5X on sale for $349.99 with an extra $50 off with coupon code BHNEXUS5X. That drops the price to a mere $299.99. Before you ask, no, the code doesn't work with the 16GB model, or with the other colors of the 32GB model. Read More
How many Android enthusiasts you know who actually enjoy talking on the phone? Yeah. Thought so. Google has figured this out, because not only does Android N make call blocking a system-level feature, this release also comes with call screening. Read More
Sprint customers have a lot to deal with, starting with the fact that they're paying for Sprint service. (I kid, I kid.) But those of them who use a Galaxy S6 or the curvier Galaxy S6 Edge have reason to celebrate, as both phones are being upgraded to Android 6.0 starting today. We have confirmation from multiple users that the OTA files are going out, and Sprint's support pages for both phones say the same thing.
Google Translate is old-hat. Today's generation of smartphone users don't want to type words into a text field and watch it appear in another language. They want to enter those characters into a word processor, spit them out onto fresh white printer paper, and feed that tree product into a Xerox machine.
Alternatively, they can send a picture of a document they've snapped a picture of. Either way, both of these possibilities are now available through the Xerox Easy Translator service launching today in Australia, Canada, Europe, South America, and the US. Read More
The Huawei Watch has been one of the best Android Wear devices since its launch last fall, but the price was quite high. It's come down a bit from time to time, but today there's a big sale on almost all variants of the Huawei Watch on Amazon. You can save over $100 on some of them, but the sale is valid today only.

Nest products are attractive because of their brains. They're not bad-looking, don't get me wrong, but its the smart things they do that keep people interested. The company's latest inclusion gets Nest interacting with your entire family.
The products now support family accounts, which can manage up to ten people. This way anyone in the house can change the temperature or receive notifications without needing the master password. Each person can interact with a Nest Thermostat, Nest Protect, or Nest Cam. Read More
It was a nice surprise when Samsung announced that its new flagship phones would be running Android 6.0, and that they were bringing back the much-requested expandable storage was icing on the cake. The news that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge would not support adoptable storage, Android Marshmallow's ability to take an SD card and partition it as semi-permanent device storage, was met with less enthusiasm. But all is not lost, expandable storage fans: long-time modder and ROM developer Paul "MoDaCo" O'Brien has got this covered. Read More
Each of the major social networks has evolved to place emphasis on something that they have excelled beyond all others. Twitter is the king of what's current. Facebook is all about planning events and staying in touch with family and friends. And despite a constant narrative about its impending doom, Google+ has become one of the best places for actual content creators to share their work. Photographers, writers, chefs, and other adventurous, interesting, and creative people have come together to share their passions.
Yesterday, Google announced a new program called Google+ Create that will fuel this trend by featuring great collections and the people that put them together. Read More
