AT&T Gets Sentimental, Releases OTA Update For The Galaxy S II Skyrocket

The Galaxy S II Skyrocket, AT&T's first LTE phone, was released a little over three years ago. During its lifetime, it had pretty good support from Samsung regarding Android version updates. It launched with Gingerbread, and got subsequent bumps to Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean 4.1.

With that in mind, AT&T apparently can't let its first LTE love go because, out of nowhere, Samsung has announced a new software update for the aging device.

[Faulex] As Smartwatches Grow, So Too Does A Market For IP-Infringing Watch Faces - And Legal Action

IP infringement and the internet have a long and storied history. Never has it been so easy to share so much so quickly so anonymously - something any college student with a campus broadband connection generally discovered as an almost dorm room rite of passage from the late 90s onward. Music, films, television, games, and other software have long been the most-pirated content categories, in turn provoking varying degrees of legal response from the industries who own and distribute such content.

Sprint Galaxy S5 Android 4.4.4 OTA Appears To Actually Really Be Rolling Out This Time

While Verizon rather weirdly got this OTA well before any of the other major carriers over 2 months ago, Sprint is finally officially announcing that its Galaxy S5 will be receiving the update to Android 4.4.4 starting today.

Seven weeks ago, Samsung jumped the gun and announced that the Sprint version would be getting 4.4.4, and its own update site further alleged that the OTA had gone live way back at the end of September.

The Uber app has been added to the list of things-AT&T-won't-let-you-uninstall, and I imagine there are a boatload of bug-fixes and the standard exploit patches you would expect in an OTA of this magnitude.
