The Android 5.0.1 factory images for the Nexus 7, 9 and 10 were rolled out earlier this month, and now, later than billed, the Nexus 5 smartphone has joined the party. If you’re a flasher, particularly if you’re in ownership of the Nexus 5.

Android Lollipop is a drastic improvement over KitKat, pushing the new Material Design language that can be seen throughout the Big G’s product line. Many of Google’s services on mobile are already boasting the slick new look and feel of this initiative, and even if you’ve yet to experience Android 5.0 first hand, you’ll have seen remnants of it continually over the past couple of months.


Whether you’ll see a Lollipop OTA on your handset sooner or later depends largely in the carrier and model / manufacturer. After all, the network operator and OEM all tend to make their own little tweaks along the way, and much to the frustration of many users, delay the roll-outs by a considerable lengths of time.

Whatever the case, Android 5.0.1 is ready and waiting for those if you on the Nexus 5, so snap it up below, and let us know how get on with it by leaving your thoughts in the comments section.

HOW GOOGLE WORKS is an entertaining, page-turning primer containing lessons that Google Executive Chairman and ex-CEO Eric Schmidt and former SVP of Products Jonathan Rosenberg learned as they helped build the company.


In their new book, the authors explain how technology has shifted the balance of power from companies to consumers, and that the only way to succeed in this ever-changing landscape is to create superior products and attract a new breed of multifaceted employees whom Eric and Jonathan dub "smart creatives."




On September 30th, 2014, Microsoft Announced the next OS in the Windows line: Windows 10. Yep, they’re totally skipping Windows 9 since they claim the next operating system will be a huge leap forward technology and feature-wise. The new version will also bring back many features that were left behind in Windows 8 such has the Start Menu and the ability to run apps in a window instead of in full-screen mode.

 



The images, which hits the blogo-sphere via Android Police, gives us our very first look at the device from the front, and as you’ll notice, it’s rather size-able. In fact, the Nexus 6 looks huge, and with a near 6-inch display, it’ll be markedly larger than its predecessor


Rumored specs for the Nexus 6 include a 5.9-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1440 pixels (498 pixels per inch), a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3,200mAh battery and Android L.
Uncomfortably large and just as brash, the Galaxy Note 4 is set to land on European and U.S. stores some time next month, but it’s already gone on sale in South Korea. That’s led Samsung Korea to post a video showing the first Galaxy Note 4 to be unboxed on camera, and it does look decidedly tasty. Apple’s mammoth iPhone 6 Plus may be king of the hill right now, but that may change once Samsung comes to town with its mighty, all-dancing and singing phablet.


Featuring a 5.7-inch screen that packs a Quad HD display – that’s 2K resolution for all you geeks out there – the Galaxy Note 4 is the successor to a line of popular and huge phones that have garnered something of a cult following. It’s arguable that Apple has joined the phablet fray, but Samsung itself has admitted that it has brought the launch of the Galaxy Note 4 forward slightly in order to combat the positive traction that Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus has been gaining.
