Huawei Is Taking $50 Off The Huawei Watch If You Bundle It With A Nexus 6P

You can (allegedly) buy a Nexus 6P from the Google Store. Heck, that's basically the only place that comes to mind. But if you don't think you can get the phone elsewhere, you're wrong. Huawei will also sell you the phone directly from its site.

Google Refutes Rumors Of Chrome OS Merging With Android, Says It's Here To Stay

The Wall Street Journal dropped a bombshell last week when it reported that Google planned to merge Chrome OS with Android and phase out the Chrome OS we've come to know and love. Googlers (including Android/Chrome head Hiroshi Lockheimer) reiterated the company's commitment to Chrome OS. Now, Google has made a post on the Chrome blog to set the record straight once and for all—Chrome OS isn't going anywhere.

[EU Only] Nexus 5X Is In Stock In Europe And Includes A Chromecast In Some Countries

Living in Europe and being able to easily buy a Nexus device have traditionally been mutually exclusive. With the possible exception of a couple of countries, getting your hands on a Nexus in Europe usually meant having to jump through a million hoops and deal with a very limited availability. Compounded with the fact that basically every other Nexus launch to date has been a fiasco in one way or another, you could count yourself lucky if you managed to grab one in time for Christmas.

Fortunately, Nexus manufacturers and Google have learned from their mistakes, and things have improved greatly compared to previous years. As a whole, preorders in the US went swimmingly, and today — barely a month after the US launch — the Nexus 5X is available to order in Europe.

Who's Down, A New Invite-Only Google App, Lets Your Friends Know When You're Available

There have been fewer and fewer new Google apps as the company expands into every conceivable web and mobile market, but they still manage to surprise us every now and then. The latest Google app is called Who's Down, and it's a strangely specific social tool. Basically it's an all-purpose "available" button. Slide the toggle from on to off, and anyone you've connected with can tell that you're available for... whatever. You can select specific activities you'd like to take part in, see which friends are also "down," and chat with them in an integrated message service.

[Chill Out] There Is No Nexus 6P Bendgate

The "bend test" has been a thing ever since Apple redesigned the iPhone in 2014. It didn't take long for people to notice the new thinner phones could be bent fairly easily (this was "bendgate"). So, now that everyone is worried about how easily phones bend, YouTubers have taken it upon themselves to test that. One video in particular has made waves as it purports to show the new Nexus 6P folding in half like a piece of wet cardboard. However, this video misrepresents the build-quality of the phone.

WSJ: Google Plans To Merge Chrome OS Into Android, Form Single New OS In 2017 [Update]

A debate has waged since Chrome OS started appearing on Chromebooks. It can be summed up as: This is nice Google, but why don't you combine it with Android? Well, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal, it looks like Google is getting ready to do just that.

Chrome OS will fold into Android. Android will better adapt to PCs. By 2017, the two will form a single, new operating system with access to the Play Store. Google reportedly plans to show off an early version sometime next year.

The Nexus 6P Gets A Measly 2 Out Of 10 For Repairability From iFixit

The Nexus 5X had a surprisingly good repairability score of 7 when it was examined inside out by iFixit, but the Nexus 6P... not so much. In the teardown for this device, the aluminum unibody 6P was found to be very difficult to open and disassemble. Even "simple" repairs of this device are far from simple for most people.

Developers Can Now Control The Exact Time Their Updates Go Live In The Play Store

Sending out updates through the Play Store can be a frustrating experience for users and developers alike. Just because a publisher says the update is out now, that doesn't mean it is. The app goes through processing, then it goes out at the speed of Google.

Now developers will have more control. Google is giving them the ability to control when an update goes live. Those that opt for timed publishing will still have to have their apps processed, but after that, sending the goods out to everyone is simply a matter of pressing the Go live button.

A number of Android phones can capture RAW photos now, but editing them on Android is tricky. There are a few apps that do it, but they're clunky or as in the case of Lightroom, cost money.
