[Weekend Poll] Does Your Phone Have A MicroSD Card? Do You Use It?

The price-per-gigabyte of microSD cards has absolutely plummeted over the last 5 years. Yesterday, Amazon had a 24-hour deal on a SanDisk 200GB microSD for just $80. That's scarcely more than what a decent 240GB SSD costs these days.

So, does your smartphone have a microSD slot? We know most of our audience are Nexus phone users, so most of you should answer "no" to this question just based on our web metrics. But I'm more interested in, if it does have one, whether or not you actually use it.

Crowdfunded Console OS Accused Of 'Stealing' Android-x86 Project's Open Source Code

The world of open source collaborative projects can be murky at times, and throwing crowdfunding into the mix doesn't make it any clearer. This odd intersection is the source of much drama in the small but passionate community that wants to see Android become as widespread on the desktop as it is on mobile. Members of the open source development team over at the Android-x86 Project, which aims to make Android operable on standard PC hardware, claim that Kickstarter project Console OS has "stolen" Android x86 code and presented it, at least in part, as its own creation.

This is where things start to get complicated.

NVIDIA Tries To Sue Samsung For Patent Infringement, Ends Up Getting Clobbered By Samsung's Patent Sledgehammer

Patent lawsuits are without a doubt one of the more boring topics in technology. It takes a lot of drama to make it interesting, but the case between Samsung (and Qualcomm) and NVIDIA has hit that bar. See, NVIDIA sued Samsung/Qualcomm in late 2014 for infringing three of its patents, but Samsung sued back with three of its own. Now, NVIDIA has lost its case, and Samsung won on all three counts. Burn.

HTC Makes The Extremely Leaky One X9 Official In China

HTC doesn't have to worry about the One X9 leaking anymore, because now it's official. It has a lot in common with the One A9, but the unibody metal design veers slightly away from the iPhone clone vibe of that device.
