1st Gen Moto 360 Is Now Only $99.99 In The Google Store Following Another Price Drop

As is often the case with technological innovation, the 2nd gen Moto 360 is a better product than its predecessor. And just as unsurprisingly, the older model continues to drop in price. Whereas starting this summer you could snag one on the Google Store for $150, the circular smartwatch now goes for $100.

PSA: Some Nexus 6P Cases Make It Super-Frustrating To Take Screenshots

Google has a number of neat case options in the Google Store for this year's Nexus phones. If you've been planning on picking up one of the official cases like the "Adopted" model, you might want to pay attention to the buttons. It actually makes taking a screenshot almost impossible. If you've already got one of the official cases and have thus far been under the impression you are losing your mind, you'll be happy to know it's not you.

[Deal Alert] The First Season Of Six Different Children's Shows Including 'Bo On The Go' And 'Animal Mechanicals' Free On Google Play [US Only]

Netflix is a great resource for parents wanting to occasionally entertain their kids with some educational shows without all the crappy Skylander commercials. There is just one issue – the content is only available when you have an active internet connection.

Which, in the days of broad LTE and WiFi coverage, is an easy thing to take for granted. That is, until you board a five-hour flight with a toddler in your lap, seated between two people who are looking at your child with a mixture of disdain and loathing. You can see in their eyes that they are just waiting to criticize your parenting as soon as your kid starts to cry.

Samsung Publishes 'Family Square' Photo Bulletin Board App For The Galaxy View

The Galaxy View is Samsung's biggest tablet, and the company is positioning it as a sort of all-purpose, general-use device for an entire household rather than a conventional mobile device. To that end they've released another exclusive app for the 18.4-inch tablet, Family Square. According to the description in the Play Store, it's meant to be a digital bulletin board, allowing multiple users to post photos to the app which are then displayed on the screen.

The setup is... unique. Instead of simply pulling photos from Facebook or Google+ accounts, Family Square needs to connect to individual phones, presumably over the local Wi-Fi network.

Some Nexus 6P Owners Are Reporting Spontaneously Broken Rear Glass Panels

The early reaction to the Nexus 6P from both critics and owners has been mostly positive, but a few new owners seem to be encountering serious problems. Specifically, the glass panel on the rear of the phone, which covers the camera, LED flash, and laser autofocus module, is reportedly cracking and breaking on its own. A user on the Android subreddit reported the rear panel cracking, and at least two others have corroborated with similar stories, with the panel splitting into multiple cracks with no particular rough handling or impact.

[Deal Alert] Google Offers Another $6 In Free Play Store Credit For Each Chromecast Or Android TV Device You Own

The Chromecast is already a pretty fantastic deal for a streaming gadget, and it just keeps on giving. It looks like Google is repeating the $6 offer it extended back in February, giving users six bucks of Play Store credit for each Chromecast and Android TV box associated with their account. The credit stacks - I have both a Chromecast and a SHIELD TV, so I now have $12 in credit just begging to be used. Thanks, Big G.

We've seen this credit activated for both the original and updated version of the Chromecast, plus the SHIELD TV and Nexus TV.

Google OnHub OTA Update Adds A Few Tweaks For Improved Performance

The OnHub router has quickly become an interesting novelty in the sometimes stoic home networking segment thanks to its forward-looking hardware and user-focused software. And Google isn't letting up on the latter: the router is already receiving its first software update, about three months after the launch of the TP Link-branded OnHub and just a week after the announcement of the ASUS version.

That being said, there isn't anything in this update that's particularly mind-blowing. According to the changelog posted on a Google support page and corroborated by an owner on Google+, the changes are focused on better performance and network management.

HTC Pushes US One A9 Pre-Order Shipments Back By Up To Several Weeks, Delays Verizon Compatibility Indefinitely

While the A9 is indeed a pretty good phone, there's no doubt HTC's bungled the launch of the device a bit. First, the whole promotional pricing thing (and the 2GB/16GB variant abroad being so damn expensive), and now? A pre-order shipment delay for those who did choose to buy one. We're hearing from US readers that HTC has sent out the following email, pushing back shipment of the initially available colors until next Tuesday, November 10th, at the earliest. Some customers, though, will be waiting much longer than that - especially if you ordered a Sprint variant.

In addition, HTC has now delayed Verizon network compatibility for the One A9 indefinitely.
