LG Is Now Mass-Producing Flexible 6-inch OLED Screens, Presumably For Upcoming Smartphones

If you've always wanted a phone with a big, curved screen, LG wants to grant your wish. To that end the company is now mass-producing flexible OLED screen panels, presumably for an upcoming device or class of devices. The screen itself (not the phone or tablet that it's going into) will be 6 inches diagonally, .44mm thin, and just 7.2 grams.

DashNotifier For DashClock Reaches The Play Store, Uses Android 4.3 NotificationListener Service To Show Notifications From Any Application

If your device runs a fairly stock version of Android, there's a good chance you've got DashClock set up front-and-center as a lockscreen widget or somewhere on your home screen. While we receive seemingly endless notifications throughout the day, relatively few applications provide support for DashClock to display that information. This is where DashNotifier comes in. It leverages the NotificationListener service added in Android 4.3 to read and display notifications from selected applications as if they had provided extensions of their own.

Well, it's here. You can now purchase the HomeSync from Amazon, Best Buy, or Samsung directly for $299.99.

[New App] Chainfire's RegionLock Away App Kills Region Lock On The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (Root Required)

Samsung was the target of extensive hate recently as it came to light that the Note 3 and other high-end devices would be sporting a new region lock designed to cut back on gray market importers. The company said the lock was only a problem the first time a phone was activated, but some users now claim to be having ongoing issues with foreign SIMs not working.

Behold Samsung's Shoddy Crooked Galaxy Note 3 Home Button - Did Anyone QC This Thing?

Yesterday, I picked up my new baby - a brand spanking new Galaxy Note 3 that replaced my aging Note 2. (Update: I'd like to clarify this since a lot of people have misconstrued the "aging" comment for something it's not. My Note 2 has a screen crack and shows significant wear and tear. You may not consider the Note 2 or INSERT_DEVICE_HERE aging, but that's not what this line was about - it was about a very specific phone I was upgrading from and nothing else.)
