[It's Dangerous To Go Alone] Google Takes More Proactive Steps To Combat 'Unwanted Software' Spam

Google stands to make the most money if you're online using its search engine and viewing its ads, preferably in Chrome or on an Android device. But sometimes the internet can be a tricky place to navigate safely, and that's just not good for business. So the company is continuing its push to make the web a safer place to browse on PCs and mobile devices alike.

Before you visit a webpage that tries to trick you into downloading unwanted, potentially harmful software, Chrome will now stop you and dish out an intimidating, red warning.

The site ahead contains harmful programs. Attackers ... might attempt to trick you into installing programs that harm your browsing experience (for example, by changing your homepage or showing extra ads on sites you visit).

[Not Lollipop] Verizon Sends Out OTA To Droid Turbo With Some Minor Fixes

There were rumors of a Lollipop soak test for the Droid Turbo on Verizon a few weeks ago, and now that update is rolling out. Guess what—it's not Lollipop. The new update, version 21.44.12 is a small KitKat bug fix for some calling issues and a few other software bugs.

Here's the changelog for the new OTA.

  • Fixes for low call volume issues
  • Email application fixes
  • DROID Command Center Widget update Fixes to reflect up to date weather

The update should arrive on your device in the next few days. It's probably not something to get excited over.

Leak: This Is Verizon's Moto E (2nd Generation) With LTE

Of the original Moto E's missing features, LTE was perhaps highest on the wish-list (well, maybe behind a front-facing camera) for the super-budget handset. The second generation Moto E - previously leaked here - will not have that problem, at least if we're talking about the version headed to Verizon. Oh, and yes: the new Moto E is going to be on Verizon, apparently. With LTE. And that picture up there is it.

This is all we've got, but the image is a dead match for the previous leak apart from the Verizon branding, so there's basically no doubt as to its legitimacy.

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei stated on Twitter early this morning that the company's One and only phone will be receiving its CyanogenMod 12S update (read: Lollipop) in "mid to late" March. Pei also implied that a similar timeline was in place for the company's in-house-ish Oxygen OS ROM.

Pei noted - in response to claims that current 12S nightlies seem stable - that "proprietary drivers, code, QA, [and] certifications" were responsible for the company missing its 90-day deadline to update the phone to Android 5.0.

Official: Google Acquires Softcard's Technology, Wallet Will Be Preloaded On AT&T, T-Mobile, And Verizon

After several weeks of rumors, Google has announced their partnership with Softcard. The purpose of this venture is to combine forces with Google Wallet, which has been around since 2011 but never enjoyed wide usage. With Apple Pay having recently entered the fray, Google apparently felt the time is now to get their service back on the map. Buying their competitor Softcard's technology, though, is just the beginning.

In addition to gaining Softcard's back end, Google Wallet will soon be preloaded on all phones sold by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon in the United States.
