PingPong Root Grants Root Permissions On The Galaxy S6 And Galaxy S6 Edge (Even Verizon And AT&T Versions) Without Tripping KNOX

It's a regular rite of passage for new Android phones: most flagships get the root treatment within a day or two of being released, allowing power users access to tools and apps that most people aren't all that interested in.

[Deal Alert] White 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 Marked Down To $249 At GameStop Online Store

Samsung generously applies a $200 value to the cases, but I think that estimate is about 4-5 times too high. They look like pretty typical snap on plastic cases, but the artwork on the back featuring symbols of Thor, The Hulk, Iron Man, and Captain America does look pretty snazzy and is sure to draw nerd lust from all your friends.

Nexus 10 Receiving An OTA To Android 5.1.1

The Nexus 10 appears to be receiving its Android 5.1.1 update over-the-air. This is mainly a bugfix release, but any update is welcome news, especially on a device that's considered by some to be past its prime.
