Pandora Buys Rdio For $75 Million, Latter Service Will Eventually Shut Down

With the number of online music streaming services floating around, there's seemingly an option out there for any type of music listener. Inevitably some of these services will be similar. Pandora provides Internet radio stations that mold to your tastes. Spotify provides an online library that lets you play what you want on demand.

Rdio lets you listen to radio stations that adapt to your taste. Sound familiar? Pandora apparently thinks so, because the company is now buying Rdio.

[Deal Alert] NVIDIA Offers A Free Remote With New SHIELD TV Purchases ($50 Value) [Update: $25 Off At Amazon]

The official first-party remote control for NVIDIA's SHIELD Android TV set-top box is great. It uses more or less the same mini-remote design as the Nexus Player, Fire TV, Roku, and any number of similar streaming boxes, but it's made out of metal, the buttons are backlit, it has a built-in headphone jack for private listening, and it recharges via a MicroUSB port.

Sony Z5 Camera App Receives Long Overdue UI Overhaul [APK Download]

The Sony Z5 currently reigns as the king of smartphone camera quality according to DxOMark. I've had the opportunity to use a review unit as my daily driver for the past week, and I have been pretty impressed with the image quality thus far.

One thing that I hadn't liked, at all, was that Sony was still using the same clunky camera app that debuted with the original Sony Z. Seriously, five generations of devices all using the same cumbersome UI?

That changes today. The Japanese phone manufacturer has begun the roll-out of the major camera app update that they previewed back at IFA.

The Google Search App Can Now Answer More Complex Questions

You never needed to phrase a search as a question in order for Google to provide an answer, but that didn't stop many of us from doing so anyway. And this was before smartphones and tablets started prompting us to ask questions using our voice. Fortunately, the habit hasn't stopped Google from telling us what we want to know, and now the search engine is becoming smart enough to understand some of our more complicated questions.

The Nexus 6P Is Now Certified For Band 12 On T-Mobile

Soon after the announcements of Google's 2015 Nexus phones, it came to light that both of them would have band 12 on T-Mobile's network disabled at launch pending certification from the carrier. It now appears that the wait is over, at least for the Nexus 6P.

T-Mobile has now added Google's larger 2015 flagship to its list of devices compatible with band 12. What we don't know, however, is when owners will get the required software update to enable the functionality.

AT&T Announces It Will Carry Samsung's Jumbo Galaxy View Tablet Starting On Friday, With Some Big Discounts For DirecTV Customers

Samsung tablets usually get picked up by at least one or two of the big American carriers, and so it goes with the enormous 18.4-inch Galaxy View. Today AT&T announced that it will begin selling an LTE-equipped version of the tablet starting on Friday, November 20th. It will cost you $600 outright, or $30 a month for 20 months on AT&T's installment plan, or $500 if you agree to a two year service contract. (Don't do that.) But wait, there's more: that AT&T-DirecTV acquisition is about to pay some serious dividends for customers of both companies.

If you're an existing AT&T customer but you don't have DirecTV, you can sign up for a new two-year TV service agreement and buy a Galaxy View for just $100.

OnePlus Announces Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update Schedule For The OnePlus One And 2

OnePlus devices run Cyanogen OS or Oxygen OS, but considering the stock look and feel of both, the company's customers are just as eager for the latest version of Android as every one else. Given the nature of OnePlus buyers—many of whom have had to snag an invite to buy their phone—maybe even moreso.

So let's cut to it: The OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 are both scheduled to get Android 6.0 in the first quarter of 2016.
