TWRP adds support for the OnePlus 5

Google has provided updated numbers on what versions of Android are out there in the world, and again Nougat is showing a respectable, though not impressive rise. Nougat has increased by 2% across both versions, which is a bit weaker than last month's 2.4% rise. Some older versions of Android saw larger than expected decreases, but Nougat has still fallen behind the pace set by Marshmallow last year.

Google's new Blocks for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive lets you model and share 3D objects with VR

Today Google has announced Blocks, a new tool for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift for making 3D objects. Think Google's Tilt Brush, but with a 3D spin.

Crafting objects literally with your hands should make Blocks much more approachable for users compared to the regular keyboard-and-mouse-driven method on a 2D screen.

I expect the number of people still using the G3 in 2017 is pretty small, but if you're still hanging in there (and you're on T-Mobile), you have an update waiting for you.
