CyanogenMod 10.2 Nightly Builds Roll Out For The Verizon HTC One

Verizon is the only major carrier in the US who offers the HTC One with Android 4.2, but that doesn't mean squat if you intend to flash a custom ROM on it anyway. Sense 5 is fast, attractive, and stable - but it isn't for everyone. The app drawer could use some work, and the launcher isn't exactly the easiest to customize. Besides, the available options pale in comparison to what CyanogenMod offers out of the box.

All Netflix Members Can Now Stream Content In Highest Quality 'Super' HD, But Only On Devices That Already Support HD

Netflix customers now all have the option to stream their favorite television shows and movies in the highest quality bit rate that the company offers. HD? No, Super HD. It's 1080p, but with less compression. Netflix first rolled out this higher quality offering way back in January, but they only worked with ISPs with whom they have a direct connection. Now they're ready to stream Super HD to everyone. They're also hoping more ISPs will adopt Netflix Open Connect, their video content delivery network that tries to reduce internet congestion by storing content on servers as close to users as possible.

Go ahead, show up in black - but you know what, everyone else there will be doing the same. Be bold. Be bright. Suit up in something that will make people remember you. No, not yellow, that's tacky. Purple, are you serious? No, lets go with white. Go ahead, try it on. I'll wait.

Mr. LG G2, you're looking good. The people over at AT&T are going to love you. Just you watch, now that you're available, no one's going to even bother looking at G2s in black anymore.

Ookla Updates The Speedtest.net App To 3.0 With A New UI, Maps, Proper Tablet Scaling, And An Ad-Free Option

Earlier this week Ookla teased their revised and updated Speedtest.net app for Android, and now it's live in the Play Store for anyone to download. The go-to network test for end users and reviewers alike has been completely redesigned, with a new interface, new options, and the ability to remove the advertising with a $.99 in-app purchase. That's a nice perk for frequent users.

The old interface wasn't exactly awful, but it had been going for several years without any sort of refresh.

Nix Color Sensor IDs Colors And Beams Them Directly To Your Smartphone, Now Funded On Kickstarter

Kickstarter backers have pushed the Nix Color Sensor past its $35,000 (Canadian) goal in hopes of finally figuring out what color stuff is. Well, it's more complicated than that. Nix tells you more than red or blue – it finds the exact RGB value for any surface you press it to, then sends the data to your phone over Bluetooth. Sound cool? Apparently you are not alone.

The Nix is a small gem-shaped device with its own calibrated light source.
