1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Downloading 4.4 (Verizon) as we speak, though it's ridiculously slow.

    Here is Verizon's changelog:

    http://support.verizonwireless.com/content/dam/support/pdf/system_update/htc-one.pdf

    Really not too much to crow about...improved gallery...a few improvements to Blinkfeed...Do Not Disturb. Feels a lot more like a minor update.

    Strangely, it seems as though ART is completely missing. At least I can't find the option to switch from Dalvik in the developer settings, like I can on the Moto X. Go figure.

    Anyone experiencing poorer battery life since the update and if so, has anyone found a fix?

    I think the baseband has been updated -- seem to be seeing better performance with that over 4.3. Otherwise I haven't noticed any other major changes.

    It's been fairly uneventful so far. Probably the update I like the most are the improvements to the Gallery. A bit more customization in Blinkfeed too.

    I got mine last week I think. Change in the icons in the notification bar. Gallery, and also Browser seems different but can't tell because I never use the stock browser.

    I also noticed you can turn BlinkFeed off. I might be late with this but just found out

    When my brother first got the update, battery life was horrible, but after a factory reset it appears to be better than before the update. I'm hoping this is a common theme for kitkat.
