Sprint Releases The G900PVPU1AND2 Launch Day Update For The Galaxy S5 A Little Late

Better late than never, right? Though the first update for Sprint's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 isn't a hugely important one, at least according to its own changelog, some users over at XDA were eagerly awaiting it. It appears that at least some users are now getting the update. In the nature of these things, it may take a bit of time to get around to all the S5 owners on Sprint.

Samsung's SideSync Desktop Program Works With All Computers (Not Just Samsung Models) After 3.0 Update

For better or worse, manufacturer apps tend to be exclusive to their own phones or tablets in the Android world. Not so with Windows programs, or at least, not usually. Samsung's SideSync program, an automated backup, remote desktop, and file transfer system, was previously limited to Samsung's own ATIV line of Windows laptops and tablets. But with the update to version 3.0, the company has removed that restriction - you should now be able to use SideSync with a Samsung Android device and any Windows machine.

HTC Hires Successful Former Samsung US Marketing Executive To Save This Sinking Humongous Tinfoil Catamaran

HTC has reportedly snagged up Paul Golden, a former Samsung US marketing executive who helped turn the Galaxy brand into a household name (or at least the closest an Android device has come), according to a Bloomberg report. He will serve as a consultant for Chairman Cher Wang. During his time with Samsung, from 2008 to 2012, the company's global smartphone market share jumped from 4.5% to 21%. HTC's, meanwhile, currently sits at less than 2%.

Samsung Decides That Free Milk Music Users Will Get Ads After All, Premium Subscription To Cost $3.99 Monthly

Thus far Milk Music has provided a fat-free experience. Since launching two months ago, the music streaming app has been straightforward, rather minimalist, and ad-free. But after taking time to reflect on the matter, Samsung's decided that perhaps a little bit of fat wound be healthier long-term. So the company's adding ads to the free version of the software, with a new ad-free premium subscription soon to launch for $3.99 a month.

[New App] Samsung's Refreshed WatchON App Now Available For Galaxy S5 As New Play Store Listing

Samsung hasn't added as many of its stock apps to the Play Store as Motorola, Sony, or HTC have, but it still uses Google's platform to distribute a few things.

[Deal Alert] Samsung HomeSync On Sale At Best Buy For $99 ($200 Off) With Free Shipping Or In-Store Pickup

The Samsung HomeSync hasn't been a huge success, and the astronomical price probably had something to do with that.

These include the T-Mobile, US Cellular, and MetroPCS models, the International Exynos option, and some shipped to various other parts of the Western Hemisphere.
