Nexus6-Thumb

Yesterday AT&T announced that it would start offering the Nexus 6 pre-orders on November 12th, and as it turns out, that was a Nexus 6-related date that you could actually trust. The 12th is here, and pre-orders to get the Nexus 6 from the carrier are now available online and in stores.

Sometimes late nights lead to interesting tips finding their way into our inbox. Tonight was just such a night. If you've been waiting to get a taste of Lollipop on your Nexus 7 2012, you're in luck. We just happen to have signed factory images for Google's original 7" tablet. The build is LRX21P, which lines up with builds we've seen on the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player (LRX21L and LRX21M respectively).

Those of you with phones not made by HTC can feel free to continue on to the next post. I'm sorry to have wasted your time... I assume if you are still reading at this point, you own an HTC device. Good, those other phones suck, right? Let's say nasty things about people who own those phones behind their backs. Before that, there's an update to BlinkFeed in the Play Store.

MotoG2ndGen-Thumb

Less than a week ago, we received word that Motorola had already started its soak test for an over-the-air update bringing Lollipop to the Moto X 2014 Pure Edition. With this news, there's a good chance the phone will get Android 5.0 before Nexus devices (not counting the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, which ship with the software). Now a tipster has come to us saying that the company has begun a test for this year's Moto G as well.

You know how no one will take your stupid money for a Nexus 6? Well, T-Mobile was supposed to start trading phones for money-dollars tomorrow (November 12th), but that's not happening anymore. The company has just announced that it's pushed back the N6 launch by one week to November 19th.

The power's out. This road trip will never end. Camping, again? Fine.

Whatever the reason, sometimes you just need extra power when there's no outlet in sight. In those instances, you're going to want the biggest, fattest external battery pack you can find. And if you have to share it, or you have multiple devices, then you're going to want something with more than one USB port.

If you head over to StackSocial and happen to live in the US, you can currently get a Limefuel LP200X battery pack with a whopping 20,000mAh of juice.

SoundHound-Thumb

SoundHound is one of the apps you can use to recognize those songs you hear playing in the background, whether it's in a commercial or in a department store. Now its developers are bumping things up to version 6.3 and giving everything a spiffy new look.

The interface above will probably look similar across platforms.

Overall, everything is still dark and looks generally SoundHound-y, but stuff has moved around a bit to make music more discoverable.

The venerable Nexus 4 was a great phone when it was released in 2012, and it's still a pretty good one now two years later. If only you could still buy it... actually, you can. Expansys has some refurbished Nexus 4s they're selling at a steep discount, and they come with a free bumper case.

chromecast

If you're a Chromecast owner - and let's be honest here, you probably are - then you'll be pleased to know Google is moving to make this little streaming stick even more versatile. With everyone getting together for the upcoming holidays, it's not only getting a couple of new movie channels, but also a handful of additional games:

  • Wheel of Fortune
  • Monopoly Dash
  • Scrabble Blitz
  • Connect Four
  • Simon Swipe
  • Just Dance Now
  • Big Web Quiz
  • Emoji Party

Most of these titles make perfect sense for something like Chromecast - they're simple enough to run on its limited hardware and interface, and still fun enough to be entertaining.
