[Update: Merger complete] Judge rules in favor of $85 billion AT&T-Time Warner merger

News of a proposed AT&T takeover of media giant Time Warner has been rumbling along for almost two years now. Donald Trump promised to contest the deal if he was voted into office, and sure enough, the Justice Department sued in an attempt to block the deal on antitrust grounds. The lawsuit has now been rejected by a District Court judge, allowing the deal to go ahead without any further conditions.

AT&T Galaxy S7 and S7 edge now receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

AT&T has become the first US carrier to roll Android 8.0 Oreo out to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. We'd thought it would be Verizon, but Big Red has now pulled its S7 Oreo changelog down twice. AT&T, however, is cutting to the chase by actually releasing the update and skipping this support page nonsense.

[Deal Alert?] Buy one AT&T LG V35, get one free

A frank description of the V35 (and LG, in general, these days) covers the range from merely uninspired and derivative to actively disingenuous. Case in point: A mere 5 days after the $900 V35 was announced, AT&T is already selling it as part of a buy-one-get-one offer for Father's Day. At an effective $450 each with a multiple-year commitment, the value is still debatable.

V35 ThinQ marks the third time LG has tried to sell the V30, and AT&T wants $900 for it

LG just revealed the latest flagship to bear the V-name, and on paper, it looks to be an incredibly iterative improvement over last year's phone (or this spring's phone). Available Friday, June 8th, the new V35 ThinQ packs the latest Snapdragon 845 into a body that is otherwise functionally identical to the previous V30S ThinQ, down to the same camera, battery, and display. And AT&T would like you to spend $900 to get one.

Although we have a good idea of the specs and capabilities packed inside LG's latest flagship—including its AI-powered camera and "Super Bright" screen—some unresolved particulars still remain. For a more detailed assessment of the hardware and software experience, you'll have to wait for our full review. But the question of carrier availability is one that can be answered now.

Phone tracking firms LocationSmart and Securus under fire for data breaches

Securus Technologies is a Texas-based company, specializing in providing and monitoring calls to prison inmates. Securus came into the spotlight earlier this month, when a former Missouri sheriff was found using the company's service to repeatedly track people without a warrant. The New York Times reports that between 2014 and 2017, former sheriff Cory Hutcheson used the service at least 11 times, allegedly tracking a judge and members of the State Highway Patrol.

Securus obtains tracking information through a company called LocationSmart, which in turn has agreements with most U.S. carriers. Earlier this month, Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon wrote a letter to various carriers asking them to independently verify that these requests are made lawfully.

The RED Hydrogen One's existence was first announced 10 months ago, but we haven't even seen a completely functional prototype since then. We've heard some basic specs and seen some dark pictures, but that's about it. AT&T and Verizon have now revealed that they will be carrying this mysterious $1,200 holographic phone starting this summer.

AT&T will skip the LG G7 ThinQ in favor of an exclusive LG phone this summer

The G7 ThinQ leaked in great detail before the announcement, but LG just got around to unveiling the device yesterday. As is tradition, we started to hear from carriers about launch plans in short order, but one was missing: AT&T. Now we know why. Apparently, AT&T doesn't intend to sell the G7 at all. Instead, it'll launch a different LG phone later.
