Verizon Wireless Says It Won't Be Throttling Unlimited Data Users After All

Back in August, Verizon turned heads when it said it would begin to use "Network Optimization" for those few customers still on the old unlimited data plans. In layman's terms, it meant that Verizon intended to throttle the speed of the top 5% of unlimited data users on LTE networks, something that's already in place on the carrier's aging 3G system. But today, the very first day that the policy was set to go into practice, the company seems to have backed down.

LastPass 3.3 Update Brings Shared Folder Management, New Options, And Bug Fixes

Version 3.3 of LastPass has hit Android devices, and it's delivering a couple of nice things to users. Shared folder management snags the top spot on the ol' change log. Now I hear you, "LastPass isn't a cloud storage provider, so why do I need to share folders?" These aren't for storing files in the traditional sense. Instead, they provide a place for people to securely exchange sites and notes with others.

[Update: Another Photo] This Guy Seems To Be Using Motorola's Nexus 6 While Commuting

Just a couple of days ago, we posted a quick look at what the next Nexus phone would look like (along with some spec confirmations), based on new information and materials we had seen. That image however, as stated before, was just a reproduction of what we'd seen (redrawn to protect our source and eliminate any possible identifiers). Today, though, we have what looks like a photo of the device.

Of course, we've seen alleged photos of this phone before, but one only showed the back, and one was very poorly lit.

Verizon Matches AT&T's Double Data Promotion, Sprint Beats Them Both With A 60GB/$130 Tier

Sometimes watching American cell phone carriers is like observing a line of monkeys - see the whole JUMP/EDGE/NEXT/whatever Sprint calls their interest-free phone financing saga. Now it's come again, this time after AT&T announced a limited promotion that doubled the data on some of its shared family plans.

Dropbox App Updated With File Exports To The SD Card, Improved L Support, And Faster Searches

There's a new Dropbox update (v2.4.5) rolling out with the option to save files to your SD card in addition to the internal storage. It's hard to believe that's not supported already, but we checked and sure enough, you can only export files to the internal storage. That changes in the new version, along with a few smaller tweaks.

If something goes up on the Internet, eventually someone is going to find it. But that doesn't mean you have to make it easy for them. There are certain things a Google+ page may want to say or share that isn't intended for all audiences. So Google has rolled out a few features that let people restrict who can see content based on age and country.

For clarification, these limitations apply to Google+ pages, such as the Android Police page, instead of individual profiles.

Sony Isn't Making AOSP ROMs For Phones Or Tablets, But It Might Possibly Think About It Someday Maybe

Recently there's been a rumor that Sony is planning on releasing stock AOSP ROMs (clean, Nexus-style builds of Android) for some of its high-end phones and tablets. It's easy to understand why Sony in particular might attract that kind of attention: the company has better support for aftermarket development than most, promptly releasing binaries and source code on the company's own GitHub and even some developer-grade AOSP builds. But as for consumer-ready, finished and fully supported AOSP ROMs?
