New DROID Turbo owners need to be aware of a feature that isn’t currently available on their device, but will be by the end of the year – simultaneous voice and data. We are not sure why the device isn’t capable of simultaneous voice and data out of the box, but Verizon has confirmed that Advanced Calling 1.0 which is VoLTE is required for it to work. Verizon has also confirmed that Advanced Calling 1.0 will arrive for the device by the end of the year.

Knowing this, will you still purchase The Droid Turbo from Verizon, wait until the update to purchase it, or choose another phone such as Nexus 6 or Galaxy Note 4?

In March of last year, Google’s Larry Page announced that Andy Rubin was stepping away from the Android team at Google to work on making super smart robots. The move was a bit of a surprise, since he co-founded the operating system that has now taken over the smartphone world. But hey, people need change some times, and that’s apparently what Andy was looking for.

Today he is officially leaving Google. According to the Wall Street Journal, Rubin is “starting an incubator for start-ups interested in building technology-hardware products.”

One of the best parts of Cyanogen Mod 11 is the all new Theme Chooser. This theme chooser allows you to apply your perfect custom look. You can mix and match parts from your favorite themes. One of my favorite new themes for the new Cm11 theme chooser is the "reNu Lust Red" theme by BIGDX. This theme is the complete package. You get a blacked out red SystemUI, new app icons, blacked out gapps and system apps, new wallpaper, new bootanimation and more! The video above is a full review of what you will get with this great theme!

Doodle is a super unique and fun theme chooser theme. This theme will only work with the theme engine found in Cyanogen Mod 11 and will not work with custom launchers. Doodle brings the design of a hand colored theme. It actually looks like elements were themed with a color crayons. Included in this theme are themed SystemUI, Settings, Icons, Keyboard, Fonts, Lockscreen, Wallpaper, Loading Spinners, Boot Animations, Ringtones/Alarms/Notifications, and more themed elements are soon to come. Head to the Play Link below to grab this theme for only .99.

According to some developers Verizon is getting ready to release an OTA update. Some users are actually posting screen shots of their devices giving the update notification. According to them it is uncertain as to whether or not this will patch the current BUMP bootloader and recovery install method. More than likely it will patch up this exploit. If you have not already unlocked your bootloader you will want to go ahead and do that. You can actually block this update.

Dial ##3328873, then enter 000000 for the service code, then uncheck the ota-dm mode to prevent any future OTA updates.

AOKP had quite a long run as the 2nd most popular rom. They were second only to CyanogenMod for several months. They gained their popularity with innovative features and endless customization options. While they have seen a small decline in popularity, they are still releasing regular releases, and they still support just about every device under the sun with an unlocked bootloader. Their nightlies are not released every night, but tend to be a bit more stable. The latest nightly was released October 18th and does add a few new features. The main feature that has been added is an option to double tap the notification bar to turn off the screen. The new nightly also brings improvements in the Theme manager, button backlight customization options, a soft reboot feature, and camera manual focus. Head to the link below for the full changelog and download links.

[Editors Note: Here's an interesting Off-Topic story for you guys today. Microsoft just released a new wearable fitness device called the Microsoft Band. The coolest thing about this device (and the reason we are sharing it here) is that it has full cross platform compatibility. That means whether you are on a Windows Phone, an iPhone or an Android phone, you can pair up with and use this intriguing fitness smartwatch.]

Microsoft has released their very first fitness band and it is quite the piece of tech. The band has a built-in GPS tracker to monitor your movements and a novel UV sensor so that you can keep track of your exposure to sunlight. Some other cool and useful features involve a skin temperature monitor and a heart rate sensor that use an optical sensor which are far more accurate than the audio sensors attached to many other bands.

Keep in mind the Microsoft Band is much more than just a fitness band. It incorporates a whole slew of features that you’d expect in a smartwatch and builds them right into the band. Features such as Twitter, Facebook, Calendar, Weather, and stock tracking are all integrated into this well built piece of tech.. Microsoft has taken the bold step of making the Band compatible with devices running Android 4.3 and 4.4, iPhones running iOS 7.1 and later, and of course Windows Phone 8.1 users. Users connecting it to a Windows 8.1 smartphone get the added bonus of Cortana integration. How do you like those apples...
