[APK/Website Teardown] Next Up For Android Device Manager: Remote Password Changing And Device Locking

When Google launched the Android Device Manager in early August, I applauded the initiative because we finally got a much-needed security solution that was built into every Android devices that ships with Google's services. Rather, it was a good start, since the functionality was so limited: location, remote wipe, and alarm.

For the last two days, I've been digging around the new Google Play Services APK 3.2.64 that started rolling out to Android devices everywhere.

[Deal Alert] Sprint's Moto X Is $99 For New Contracts And Upgrades On Amazon ($100 Off)

If you're one of the many who thinks Motorola's X phone is the bee's knees, then Amazon potentially has a deal that may be of interest. Why "potentially," you ask? Because this one's only good for Sprintsters (or those considering the jump).

For the time being, Amazon is letting the X go for $99 on-contract for both new agreements and existing customers. Unfortunately, the black version is currently out of stock, so it's white or bust at the moment.

Sony Teases Google TV-Running BRAVIA Smart Stick For September 15th Unveiling

In a post to its blog today, Sony gave a brief look at a new device to be announced this Sunday, the 15th of September.

What the company calls the BRAVIA Smart Stick looks like a waffle or small wafer cookie, and "plugs into the MHL connection on the back of 2013 Sony BRAVIA televisions, with another short cable plugged into the USB port for power." Right now it's unclear if the device will be compatible with other TV models.

The Verizon G2 Is Configured To Show Root Status In The About Phone Menu, Make It Easier To Void Your Warranty

Buying a Verizon G2? You might want to think twice about rooting it, because Big Red has specifically configured its version of the device to show whether or not the phone is rooted in the "status" sub-menu of the About Phone area. Why? Almost certainly for the express purpose of voiding warranties or returns for people who screw up their phones (or, allegedly screw up) after rooting them.

I have confirmed the rooting status flag is also present on my Verizon G2 review unit, but not the AT&T or international unlocked variants.

DROID DNA Sense 5 And Android 4.2 Update Details Land On Verizon's Site, Highlight BlinkFeed, Quick Settings, And More

Verizon hasn't explicitly announced an Android 4.2 update for the DROID DNA, but in a way, they have. The company has updated the support page for the nearly one-year-old handset with an in-depth look at what new goodies to expect.

After this update, DROID DNA owners will have an HTC Sense 5 experience that approaches that of the HTC One.

Now that the HTC One Google Play Edition is dancing in the club that exclusively admits devices running the latest bleeding-edge version of Android, it's time for Samsung's Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition to do the same. For some reason Samsung seems a lot less coy about the update - while only a few users on the XDA forums are reporting that they've received the latest software (labeled MH5), both the kernel source code and the official over-the-air update have been posted to the usual spots.

[What's Really New/APK Teardown] Google Maps Update 7.2 Rolling Out: Google Now-Style Navigation Card, Hotel Rates, HTC Contacts Bug Fix, And More [APK Download]

Earlier today, Google started slowly rolling out an update to Maps with version 7.2. This is a point release, up from 7.1, so I expected more than just minor changes. While not as big as the quiet Drive update yesterday, Maps 7.2 brings a few notable changes to the table that Google has not yet (or won't ever) itemized in the changelog. Upon getting my hands on the APK, which you can find at the bottom of this post, I hopped onto the teardown couch and dug in.
