IK Multimedia's iRig 2, The First Digital Music Interface With Android Support, Is Available Today For $40

IK Multimedia's iRig 2, The First Digital Music Interface With Android Support, Is Available Today For $40

Back in early January of this year, IK Multimedia announced the iRig 2, one of three Android-compatible digital music interfaces announced by the company in recent months. While the first one -- the iRig HD-A -- is compatible exclusively with Samsung Professional Audio devices (Note 3/4, Galaxy S5/6/Edge), the iRig 2 is the first interface on the market that should support most Android 5.0 devices in some way or another.

Today marks the public release of the iRig 2, and it's already available from retailers like Musician's Friend and Sweetwater Music, though Amazon shows that it's actually not available until March 30th.

Galaxy Gear Successors 'Gear 2' And 'Gear 2 Neo' Leaked In Photos, May Not Be Galaxy-Branded [Update: Orange Variant]

Samsung leaks have been harder to come by as of late - with the Galaxy S5 probably arriving at a press event on Monday, we still haven't seen hide nor hair of the hardware. But perennial leaker Evleaks has just posted two photos of what appear to be successors to the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. According to a later tweet, the watches may drop the standard "Galaxy" branding.

The biggest change on display is the addition of a physical button on the "face" of the phone.

If you've been waiting for your magenta-flavored Galaxy S4 to get its long-awaited Android 4.3 update, check your notification bar now. According to both T-Mobile's official support page and some evidence from the denizens of XDA, the phone is getting its final Jelly Bean release as you read this.

The 4.3 update for this and other Samsung phones packs more than the usual updated software: it also makes Samsung's later phones compatible with the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, previously restricted to the Galaxy Note 3. Other changes in 4.3 include the usual updates to core Android, plus visual tweaks for the TouchWiz interface, Samsung's KNOX security update, and a few adjustments and bug fixes.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear Will Be Available From Sprint Both In Stores And Online Starting October 4th

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear Will Be Available From Sprint Both In Stores And Online Starting October 4th

Since Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 3 earlier this month, we've heard of launch dates from Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. Now it's Sprint's turn. The carrier will start selling the Note 3 and the Gear smartwatch on October 4 both in stores and online. It's not yet available for pre-order, but you can at least register for more information on the two devices if Sprint's your only option.

Sprint

Unfortunately, Sprint's price for the Note 3 is pretty steep. The 5.7-inch handset will set you back $349 with a two-year agreement. Sure, you're getting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, a 3200mAh battery, and a 1080p Super AMOLED screen, but you're also paying more than the original price of a Nexus 4 and still getting shackled to a contract.

Say what you will about the Galaxy Note 3's ostentatious presentation, but you can't deny that it's a monster chunk of hardware.

AT&T's Galaxy Note 3 Is Rooted, But You'll Have To Downgrade And Wipe Your Phone

AT&T's Galaxy Note 3 Is Rooted, But You'll Have To Downgrade And Wipe Your Phone

AT&T might be steadfastly refusing its customers full access to the devices they "own," but it's still plenty possible to get root access on most new phones, especially if they're popular. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 certainly qualifies for the latter, and the fellas at XDA have come through once again. XDA Recognized Developer "designgears" (with a little help from the reliable Jorrit "Chainfire" Jongma) has released a working root method for AT&T's model of the Note 3 (SM-900A).

Unfortunately the steps to getting root are not altogether straightforward. You'll need a Windows PC, Samsung's Odin software, and a basic understanding of the tools of the trade (bootloader mode, download mode, and some ADB skills wouldn't hurt).

AT&T Galaxy Note 3 4.4.4 OTA Is Rolling Out Again After Bloatware Stalled The Initial Release

AT&T Galaxy Note 3 4.4.4 OTA Is Rolling Out Again After Bloatware Stalled The Initial Release

Raise your hand if you like carrier apps added to your phone. Anyone. Go ahead, don't be shy. Well if you don't, here's a great example of why companies like AT&T should leave the software alone. An over-the-air update to 4.4.4 for the carrier-customized version of the Galaxy Note 3 was sent out on November 28th, then unceremoniously pulled. A previous message on the support page explained why:

Update: The software update for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (SMN900A) is temporarily on hold, effective November 28, 2014. Samsung is working with AT&T to resolve a reported issue with ATT Address Book synch on the latest Samsung Note 3 operating software update.

US Cellular Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, And Galaxy Note 4 Get New Dialer, Updated Camera App, And More In The Latest OTA

US Cellular Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, And Galaxy Note 4 Get New Dialer, Updated Camera App, And More In The Latest OTA

If you have a late-model Samsung phone on US Cellular, odds are pretty good that there's a software update waiting for you. The Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 flagships are getting an updated build of KitKat, along with the last-gen Galaxy Note 3. Don't get your hopes too high: all three phones will still be running Android 4.4.2 after the update. But Samsung is pushing out a few incremental changes, notably for the dialer and camera.

According to the update notes, a lot of the tweaks are specifically for Google-related services, notably the ability to "search for nearby places and businesses, your contacts, or people in your Google Apps domain."
