LG Releases Its Long Promised Bootloader Unlock Tool, But It Currently Only Supports The G4 For The EU Open Market (H815)

Many moons ago, LG had promised the release of an official bootloader unlock tool for its G3, but the company didn't make good on its word.

[Deal Alert] Groupon's Refurbished $20 Chromecast Deal Is Back For A Limited Time

Even at full price, you could stick a [Deal Alert] tag on just about any box with a Chromecast in it. I mean, the thing costs $35 bucks and turns any TV from a blank screen to something that can play most of what us cord cutting types want to watch these days.

Samsung's latest and most advanced tablet series is the Galaxy Tab S. That's kind of amazing when you consider the company's previous rate of releasing new tablets, and that the Tab S 8.4 and Tab S 10.5 were released almost a year ago. But I suppose it's nice if you happen to have one, so Samsung is more motivated to release faster updates.

Google Calendar's SMS Notifications Will Not Be Available After June 27th

There was a time, several years ago, when SMS notifications were very handy. Twitter, Google Calendar, and many other services, used the 160 characters to let you know of any changes to your schedule, new mentions and direct messages, and surfaced other useful information to you. But in today's age, where smartphones are so ubiquitous and you could get one for less than $100, SMS is taking a step back to regular notifications from installed apps.

While Google had announced Wi-Fi support for the platform's update in general, it turned out that the G Watch R didn't have the certifications necessary to boast that function, although technically the hardware was very capable of it.
