CyanogenMod Nightlies Arrive For The Verizon Galaxy S5 And The GSM HTC One Mini 2

Android has come a long way over the years, and there's less incentive to install a custom ROM than there used to be. Nevertheless, the desire is still there. CyanogenMod remains the most established and well-known option around, so it's no small thing when a new device gets supported. Two devices that have recently made the list include the Verizon Galaxy S5 (kltevzw) and the GSM version of the HTC One Mini 2 (memul).

T-Mobile's Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 Gets Android 4.4.4 In Latest OTA Update

T-Mobile is pushing out an over-the-air update that will bump its Galaxy Tab 4 up to Android 4.4.4.

A Sit-Down With Oculus And Samsung Gear VR - An Unlikely Match That May Just Work

Yesterday, I had an opportunity to meet with Oculus VR at one of the company's numerous offices in Irvine, CA to discuss the company's partnership with Samsung on a piece of hardware you're likely aware of by now: Gear VR Innovator Edition.

Gear VR is, for all intents and purposes, the first consumer product to ever bear the Oculus name. The company's various developer kits have never been marketed to consumers (even if some consumers do buy them), and even this new Samsung gizmo isn't going to be heavily distributed or broadly-targeted.
