Samsung Rolls Out A Lollipop Update To The Galaxy Note Edge In Australia

The Galaxy Note Edge is a little weird, a little out there. So it's only appropriate that Samsung has chosen Australia as the first place to roll out the phone's Lollipop update. According to SamMobile, Note Edge owners in Oz started seeing the update late last night local time, at least for the SM-N915G variant of the phone. As far as we've seen, Australia is the first market to get the update for the Note Edge.

NVIDIA Adds Saints Row IV To Its Streaming GRID Service, Alan Wake And Metro: Last Light Coming Soon

One of the lesser-known portions of the custom game software on NVIDIA's SHIELD Portable and SHIELD Tablet is GRID, an OnLive-style streaming PC gaming system. It allows owners to play a selection of full-feature PC games streamed from NVIDIA's own virtualized systems at a data center, no personal gaming PC required. The service is still in beta, but has been growing steadily since its introduction a little over two years ago.

At 6mm thick, this thing is thinner than an iPad. The bezels are small too, except for the chin that juts out at the bottom, not unlike the Sharp Aquos Crystal.

LG Announces The All Metal LG Watch Urbane

LG has just sent out a press release for its latest Android Wear device - the LG Watch Urbane.

  • Operating System: Android Wear™
  • Display: 1.3-inch P-OLED Display (320 x 320, 245ppi)
  • Size: 45.5 x 52.2 x 10.9mm
  • Memory: 4GB eMMC / 512MB LPDDR2
  • Battery: 410mAh
  • Sensors: 9-Axis (Gyro / Accelerometer / Compass) / Barometer / PPG (Heart Rate Sensor)
  • Colors: Gold / Silver
  • Other: Dust and Water Resistant (IP67)

LG hasn't provided any specific availability details (or pricing), but we should be finding out more at Mobile World Congress, which is quickly approaching.

Google's Device Art Generator Adds Android Wear To Lineup

Google's official device art generator is a great tool for making screenshots look pretty. For all recent Nexus devices, including Nexus 5, 6, 7, and 9 (plus a few older devices), the generator has high-quality device frames that will perfectly show off properly sized screenshots. Users can simply drag a screenshot in and then drag the framed shot back out, with shadow or glare effects if desired.

Now, it looks like Android Wear has joined the lineup on the device art generator. Rather than opting for specific device art (which in this case would include a watch body and a strap), Google has added very basic frames for "round" or "square" watches (no flat tire shapes allowed).

More Evidence That Google Play Music All Access May Shift Branding To 'Google Play Music Unlimited'

As nice as Google Play Music All Access is for music lovers (and it's gotten considerably nicer since essentially being merged with YouTube Music Key), the branding is a bit of a mouthful. We've been sent a series of tips that indicate that Google may shift the name sometime in the future... but don't hold out for something particularly ingenious. According to our tipster, the new name might be "Google Play Music Unlimited," as indicated way back in July of last year.

At least some of the portions of Google's support text refer to "Google Play Music Unlimited," particularly the newer email messages sent to customers.

Google Adds Some Valentine's Day Treats To Hangouts

 

If you're wishing someone a happy Valentine's day using Hangouts today rather than face-to-face, Google's got a special easter egg for you.

Back in December, Google added tons of special animations to Hangouts, triggered by words like "woohoo" or "yay!!" or "lmao," but it looks like there are some extra treats for Valentine's day. Typing "Happy Valentine's," or "Happy Valentine's day" will trigger a few heart-themed animations, featuring a love-struck emoji or a fox gifting flowers to its duck Valentine.

This easter egg seems to be part of Google's effort to make Valentine's day special for users across its web properties, with other tricks including a heart-filled +1 action on Google+ (seen below) and Google's "special edition" reCAPTCHAs.
