[Yes, Really] Investors Put Off That HTC Didn't Give Out Over $1 Million In Free Phones To Everyone At Annual Shareholders Meeting

When you're a big-shot investor in a major tech firm - or just happen to have enough shares and time to waste to get into the annual shareholders meeting - you have every right to expect free stuff at said firm's annual shareholders meeting.

At least, that's what a substantial number of attendees at HTC's yearly stock-person get-together thing expected. In fact, many of them decided to use their question time at the meeting to express their expectations, and the fact that said expectations had not been met, and seriously, what the hell man, you totally gave out free phones to everybody last year, what gives you jerks?

Google Drive Docs, Slides, And Sheets Web Apps Can Now Delete Files Without Leaving The Editor

Google Drive/Google Docs isn't the best online office suite in the world, at least in my experience, but it is a pretty great way to get a competent and instant editor for quick tasks. The only problem is that this tends to leave you with dozens of semi-finished items in your Drive, a bunch of quick paragraphs and hastily-formatted emails that need to be deleted one-by-one in the list view.

Amazon Releases Fire Phone SDK To Developers, Includes Support For Firefly, Dynamic Perspective, Motion Gestures, Active Widgets, And More

Jeff Bezos took to the stage earlier today to announce Amazon's first entrant into the highly competitive smartphone industry, the Fire Phone. Not only was the presentation loaded with some of the shiny new features of the handset and Fire OS, all meant for the press to disseminate to potential buyers, but there were also a few unusually blunt efforts to attract developers. In the midst of demonstrating Firefly and Dynamic Perspective, portions of the presentation were focused on explaining that developers would be able to extend these platform features in their own apps.

[Deal Alert] New 16GB 2013 Nexus 7 Selling For $169.99 ($60 Off) Via Adorama On eBay Daily Deals

The 2013 Nexus 7 is approaching a year old now, but that time has done little to slow this 7-inch slate down. New models are still zippy and more than capable of handling most of what the Play Store has to offer.
