RootJunky Finds Yet Another Complicated Factory Reset Protection Bypass After The May Nexus Security Patch

Google introduced factory reset protection (FRP) in Android 5.1 to make it impossible to use a stolen device. Ever since then, RootJunky has been finding workarounds for it. Presumably this is all he does, tapping around in the setup menu for hours or days on end until he finds a trick. Google just rolled out the May security patch for Nexus devices, and RootJunky has found a FRP bypass method for it. It's not easy, but it works.

Google Launches Slides Q&A, Making Questions And Answers Interactive

I've always found myself nervous when Q&A sessions come up at a talk or presentation - I want to ask a question but can never find the willpower to actually put my hand up and ask it. Slides Q&A, in the latest version of Slides, appears like it might remedy or at least go some way to fixing that situation with its digital, typically Google-y approach to question and answer sessions.

With the update, Q&A is open all through the talk, with a link on the presentation screen. The audience is able to submit questions to the speaker, which can then be voted up or down by other members of the audience.

Microsoft Announces SharePoint Mobile Apps, Android Version Coming Later This year

SharePoint has millions of users, but none of them are connecting to the service through a mobile app. That's because Microsoft hasn't yet released one. Users have had to settle for working through a browser instead.

That's now changing.

Off-Topic: This Hilarious Grand Theft Auto Parody Of Google's Self-Driving Car Will Start Your Day Off Right

The off-topic tag doesn't get a lot of use here at AP, but why have it if we aren't going to let it stretch its legs once in a while? I thought I'd start off the morning with a video I found particularly hilarious. Everyone knows about Google's self-driving, steering wheel-less car. It's adorable and, ostensibly, the future. But this GTA V parody of a news station's "first ride" clip from the car's public debut had me in absolute stitches, it's the funniest thing I've seen in weeks.

Just a bit of light, pedestrian-striking humor to get your day started. It's all in good fun, though; technological breakthroughs are worthy of the occasional well-intentioned mocking.

Google Begins Rollout Of Improved Photos Smartburst, Burst Management Now Much Easier

Cody found evidence of an improved smartburst for Google Photos in his v1.16 teardown, and on the v1.17 official changelog it listed 'Improved burst photo support' as one of the points.

2K's New Shooter Battleborn Comes To Android As A Disappointing 2D 'Clicker' Game

Right now mega-publisher 2K is in full promotion mode trying to get people to play Battleborn. It's a brand new shooter from (at least some of) the makers of the hugely popular Borderlands, and it attempts to blend conventional pew-pew gameplay with the variety and marketability of the MOBA genre. As part of this push the company has published Battleborn Tap, a mobile game that is neither a MOBA nor a shooter. Instead, it's underwhelming.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Rock Clock App Has The Objectively Best Alarm Tones Ever, No IAPs

Dwayne Johnson, AKA The Rock, may be the most likeable man in the universe. And now he has an alarm clock app that, above all else, perpetuates this, because he's The Rock. You may say, "David, what makes this so much better than my amazing alarm clock app that I already have?" To which I would answer: this one contains nearly infinitely more Dwayne Johnson. And Dwayne Johnson does not do "snooze" buttons.

One of the alarm tones is just Johnson saying "beep, beep, beep." This may sound boring, but it is, in fact, objectively amazing. Another begins with a soft, typical-morning-wake-up harp ringtone, followed by The Rock smashing said harp, and then shouting "JABRONI!" You cannot make this up.
