Google released the TP-Link OnHub router a few months ago to kick off a new product category, and now there's a second version. The Asus-built OnHub will be available for pre-order in the US for $219.99, and it looks and functions a lot like the last OnHub. The first OnHub isn't being forgotten, though. It will be getting its first update this week.
The G Vista is a mid-range version of LG's flagship phone, a larger variant with similar looks and weaker specs for folks looking to save a little bit of money. Now AT&T has announced that it will offer the G Vista 2 as an exclusive in a matter of weeks. And this time LG is throwing in a stylus.
A week ago, we took an early look at the Nexus 6P, the larger and more "premium" of Google's phones for 2015. Now that I've lived with the 6P for a bit longer, it's time for the full review.
As stated in the preview post, the 6P is undoubtedly the more premium of the two new Nexuses.

Without further ado:
Ghosts of Memories
Ghosts of Memories isn't shy about it's story-focused puzzle game inspiration - there's a lot of Monument Valley DNA in there.
Right now there are three Android phones and four Android tablets within arm's reach of my desk, and another half dozen or so in my closet. (It's OK, I don't have a problem. This is my job.) If you're in a similar situation, you can put some of those gadgets to use: they work great as remotes for set-top boxes like Android TV or Roku, or you can cobble them together into a sort of poor man's Sonos multi-room speaker system.

As is tradition, iFixit has obtained a new phone and torn it asunder in hopes of learning what makes it tick. The Nexus 5X is the latest phone on the iFixit disassembly table, and it turns out to be much more repairable than other phones. You won't need any weird tools and many of the components are simple to replace.
