Pandora Gets A Spiffy New Interface, Looks Like An App You'll Actually Want To Use Now

Before Google Play Music, YouTube Music, Spotify, Rdio, or any of those other music services, there was Pandora. I've pretty much been using it since the beginning (albeit off and on), and no matter how many other music streaming/discovery services show up, I always keep coming back to it for all my radio needs. I use it as a supplement to Play Music — when I don't know what to listen to, Pandora is always there to hook me up.

Motorola product manager David Schuster took to Google+ with the news.

Two Weeks Later, NVIDIA Resumes The Android 6.0 Upgrade For The SHIELD Tablet, This Time With Working Wi-Fi

NVIDIA tends to be very diligent when it comes to upgrading its first-party Android hardware. Earlier this month the company sent out an over-the-air update for the SHIELD Tablet, bumping the mostly-stock software up to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. A day later it halted the update, because early users were reporting that the new software made the tablet's Wi-Fi inoperable... which is kind of a big deal, especially when most of your tablets are Wi-Fi only. Today the problem has apparently been fixed, and the update is being resumed.

The news was posted on NVIDIA's official forum, which remains quite active.
