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...

The latest Rovio Angry Birds crossover game is available now. This one crosses over in two ways. One, this one is an Angry Birds: Transformers tie-in to that franchise. Two, this is a Sonic-style platformer game instead of the usual physics based, catapult style of previous Angry Birds games. Here's a full description taken from the Google Play Store,

"Description

Angry Birds and Transformers collide in this action-packed, 3D shoot ‘em up adventure! The EggSpark has transformed the eggs into crazed robots who are destroying Piggy Island, but who can stop them?! Autobirds, ROLL OUT!
Have you ever seen an alien robot Angry Bird? Enter the AUTOBIRDS! This brave band of heroes features Red as Optimus Prime, Chuck as Bumblebee and… well you’ll meet the rest soon. They’ve got lasers and they turn into cars. Plus they have arms and legs – that’s a first!

But the courageous Autobirds can’t save Piggy Island on their own – to stop the EggBots they’ll need to join forces with their arch rivals the DECEPTIHOGS (like Decepticons only smellier). Can these bitter enemies team up and put aside their differences? Yeah right...

*NOTE: Angry Birds Transformers is completely free to play, but there are optional in-app purchases available.

  • COLLECT! Unlock a roster of heroes (and villains) with unique attacks and abilities!
  • DESTROY! Leave the slingshot at home – this time you have some SERIOUS firepower!
  • VEHICLES! Oh,...

Even though Samsung's recent quarterly numbers were abysmal, their stock actually soared by 4.5%. That is only because the estimates were worse than the final results. Still, looking at these results you know that Samsung executives must be sweating bullets right now. The company's profits for Q3 tanked by 60% on the year down to $3.9 billion, and its revenue back-pedaled 20% to $44.6 billion. Ouch! If that's better than what analysts' estimated, then the outlook must have been very grim.

The main reason that Sammy has been so hammered the past few quarters is two-fold. One, Apple has stepped up their game and has been rapidly stealing marketshare back from Samsung, especially with the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This is putting extra pressure on Samsung at the high-end. The second factor bashing away at Samsung comes from the low-end market. Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Huawei and others have been trouncing Samsung in the cheap phone arena where Sammy previously thrived.

It seems like a "perfect storm" of anti-Samsung tactical competition is weakening their position across the globe. Their are some analysts out there suggesting that Samsung is facing a "nightmare scenario." They are even comparing Samsung's precipitous drop to that of HTC or Nokia, both previous examples of former tech titans who were once the king of the hill, but are now struggling to survive (or got gobbled up in the case of Nokia). While it is highly unlikely that Samsung...

The "marriage" between Motorola and Lenovo is finally a done deal. The two companies completed all the steps necessary to officially merge the two companies (with Motorola being acquired by Lenovo). Motorola has been working independently since the announcement of the acquisition was made. It seems probable that Lenovo will continue to let Motorola run its own side of things for the most part, although we doubt it will operate completely autonomously.

It will be interesting to see what Lenovo can do with Motorola. They are famous for taking other brands and turning them into a success, like the ThinkPad and IdeaPad line in the past. It's likely that Lenovo will begin selling Motorola smartphones and tablets in China under their own well established name, even while they continue to sell Motorola branded products elsewhere in the world. Here's a quote with more of the details,

The third Motorola Droid Turbo video commercial with James Franco is almost as bizarre as the last two, yet it is a bit more interesting. Not only is it longer than the others, it actually makes some sense in a silly sort of way.

In general if you take all the commercials as a whole, it appears their "theme" is that the Droid Turbo will help you manipulate time. While the device obviously won't actually confer time-manipulation powers, it seems obvious that some of its capabilities (like the Turbo Charge feature, fast processor, and its long battery life) will help you save time in your busy schedule. It also happens to be a gorgeous device, so that seems like a win-win situation for those interested in grabbing this phone.
