[HoloYolo4EVA] Bug Watch: Some Users Are Frequently Seeing This Password Recovery Prompt When Using The Play Store

Ah Holo, how easily have you been forgotten! No sooner had Material Design been announced that we scrapped your vibrant black and blue, your grey boxes, your app tabs, and started championing white everywhere and animations. It's clear that Holo doesn't want to die, or someone at Google doesn't think Holo should be completely gone from Android, if only because it's good to see where you came from to appreciate the road you've been on. Like keeping that old photo of your acne-filled face or that baggy pair of pants that you used to wear before losing weight. It's great for reminiscing and comparing.

A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build But You Can Still Give It Your Best Shot

There's nothing more heartwarming in the middle of a snowy winter than getting together with your family or friends to build a snowman. You can always count on the experience to throw you into a time machine and make you feel childish and innocent again. And the snow fights, man the snow fights! The joy of landing a big compact snowball smack in the middle of your target! Is there anything better?

But I digress. Snowy seasons aren't prevalent all year round in every corner of the world, so if you want to relive that pure joy while still enjoying a brain teasing game, A Good Snowman should fit the bill.

Yahoo Mail 5.1 Manages Your Gmail Accounts Too, Introduces Lots Of Improvements

Yahoo Mail received a pretty big update a couple of months ago with an interface revamp to Material Design (or Yahoo's interpretation of it), Account Key to sign in on your mobile device without having to input your password, and support for other mail providers like Outlook, Hotmail, and AOL. You may have noticed that Gmail wasn't present in that list, but that changes today.

Yahoo! is rolling out an update to version 5.1 of Mail that adds Gmail support so you can start checking your Googly inbox from Yahoo's app. I don't know why you'd want to do that, but I'm sure there are valid reasons why such a feature would be important.

Android 6.0.1 Finally Links Bluetooth And System Media Volume Settings, But It Breaks Volume Control On Many Headsets

Here's a good news / bad news kind of situation with the latest Android 6.0.1 update. In 2013, KitKat was supposed to link Bluetooth and System media controls allowing headsets, speakers, and car stereos to manage volume loudness on your phone. That never happened. Up until Android 6.0, if you were listening to audio through a Bluetooth-connected accessory, you had to control volume from your phone and the accessory separately. You could lower one, but the other would stay high, resulting in a medium volume. In order to completely lower or raise the volume, you had to do so from both, which wasn't practical at all.
