htc google play 640x467A report from earlier this week suggested that we could be getting Android 5.0 Lollipop on the HTC One M8 and M7 Google Play Editions this Friday, which is today, but unfortunately if you’re the owner of either handset, you’re out of luck because according to a recent tweet by HTC it looks like the update has been delayed.

According to Mo Versi, VP of Product Management at HTC, he revealed that while the update was supposed to arrive today for their handsets, Google had advised them to take the software for one more spin before releasing it, suggesting that the update might not be ready for prime time just yet.

Streaming Ps in the Chrome Store 640x360While Chromebooks might be seen as really lightweight versions of laptops in the sense that they can’t really run heavy duty software, things have definitely changed over the years, especially with Google and Adobe announcing back in September that Photoshop would be making its way onto Chrome OS.

Well the good news is that after laboring at it for the past 2 years, it looks like Photoshop has finally made its way onto Chrome, but unfortunately if you’re looking to get your hands on it, you can’t, at least not yet. Photoshop is available for download via the Chrome Web Store but it seems that it is only limited to educational institutions for now and for the next 6 months.

google logo 2011 10 25Google is a massive company and they have their fingers in all sort of pots – music, video, search, productivity, email, robots, self-driving cars, and so on. But are they getting too big? Well according to the European Parliament, it seems that they are thinking that Google is becoming too big for its own good, so much so that they are considering a draft motion that could see Google being split up into multiple companies.

This is according to a report from the Financial Times (paywall; via Android Central) where it seems that the charge is being led by the German representatives. The publication writes, “A vote to effectively single out a big US company for censure is extremely rare in the European parliament and is in part a reflection of how Germany’s politicians have turned against Google this year.” Read full post →European Parliament Wants To Break Google Up Into Smaller Companies

nexus 6 review 1 640x428No one likes phones that comes with buggy software, especially not after you’ve spent a couple of hundred to get your hands on one. Well unfortunately it looks like there are some Nexus 6 owners who have bought the phone from AT&T who are currently experiencing software issues. For those hearing about this for the first time, basically the bug is where the phone is turned on and shows a black screen.

It will then fail to connect to service which ultimately leaves the phone useless. It’s a pretty serious bug and not one that customers can sit around and wait for an OTA update, especially since the phone won’t even turn on! Well AT&T has since asked customers to return the phones to them in which they will replace them with working models. Read full post →Motorola Acknowledges Fatal Bug In AT&T’s Nexus 6

karaluxThe iPad Air 2 is definitely not a cheap tablet at all, as this happens to be the thinnest tablet on the planet – which will also warrant a relatively higher price point compared to other tablet models out there in the market.
