[Update: 70% of US employees let go] LeEco founder Jia Yueting steps down as CEO of public unit

[Deal Alert] Grab an unlocked LG G5 for $299 from B&H ($230 off) and get a free LG 360 VR headset (worth $129)

LG first launched its X-series line of phones halfway through last year, and it's been continuing to roll new models out.

SMS support for Hangouts officially ends today, excluding Google Voice and Project Fi subscribers

Today is the day that Hangouts finally loses SMS support. We were warned by Google about it months ago when Hangouts started showing a warning that it would no longer support the feature.
