Congress not likely to force iOS and Android decryption for the FBI

iOS and Android Encryption

Apple has more than once reminded customers it values their security and privacy and has been reassuring them that they won’t become the company’s “product” and that their data will be safely encrypted. Similarly, Google also said it will encrypt Android devices by default. Since then, the FBI and others have complained that Apple and Google will be basically helping bad guys get away with bad things thanks to encrypted devices.

After more than two years, Apple still needs your help fixing Apple Maps

Apple Maps Connect

For years, Apple has been doing everything in its power to make Apple Maps the app of choice for traveling iPhone owners. Unfortunately, it’s not always the most reliable companion, which is why Apple is putting the power to edit its service into the hands of small business owners. Apple Maps Connect allows businesses to add content directly into the mapping service free of charge straight from their browsers.

A mysterious second-gen Chromecast is indeed on the way

Chromecast vs. Android TV

After having been spotted in FCC documentation, the second-generation Chromecast has been confirmed by Googlers from the Chromecast team during a Reddit ask-me-anything session, but they said the device will not have any new features for users, without revealing more details about it. Meanwhile, Gigaom has learned that a Chromecast V2 is indeed coming, as Google doesn’t plan to replace its extremely affordable and very popular dongle with Android TV just yet.

The most disappointing video games of all-time, according to Redditors

Top 10 Most Disappointing Video Games

The mobile price wars may finally be starting to sting AT&T

AT&T Q3 2014 Earnings

Wireless price wars are good for consumers but not-so-great for carriers’ bottom lines. AT&T on Wednesday reported earnings of $0.63 per share on revenues of $32.96 billion, which slightly missed the consensus estimate of $0.64 per share on revenues of $33.22 billion. But while AT&T’s earnings only just missed expectations, Bloomberg reports that the company also cut its estimates for revenue growth on the year amid fierce competition with smaller rivals T-Mobile and Sprint.

Leaked blurry Droid Turbo photos confirms flagship specs

Latest blurry Droid Turbo photos leak confirms leaked specs

Latest blurry Droid Turbo photos leak confirms leaked specs

The latest batch of blurry photos of the unannounced Motorola Droid Turbo that’s said to be headed to Verizon’s 4G LTE network confirms the specs that we think we may already know from prior leaks. The Android smartphone would join the Moto X 2014 and Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 on Verizon’s network. Unlike the Nexus 6, however, the Droid Turbo in the leaked photo is shown running Android 4.4.4 rather than Google’s latest sweet flavor of Lollipop. Other specs include a QHD 2560 X 1440-pixel display, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of built-in storage.

Microsoft debuts Torque, Bing search for Android Wear with a twist of your wrist

Microsoft debuts Torque, Bing search for Android Wear with a twist of your wristMicrosoft is on a roll with Android support today. The company’s Garage program has just launched an app for Android Wear that makes searching Bing a bit more convenient.

Google's AppCompat v21 brings Material Design to pre-Lollipop devices

AppCompat

AppCompat

This is great news for developers. Google has updated the popular AppCompat library to version 21, and introduced a new Toolbar widget that will allow for a more Material Design look and feel in apps built for devices running older firmware. This update is exactly what we’re all seeing in recent updates for Google Apps like the Play Store or Play Newsstand, and is how we can have the new design language on the majority of Androids, even if they aren’t running Lollipop.

A few quick thoughts on Google Inbox

Google today announced Inbox, a sort of Gmail with training wheels. That is, it tries to make your email experience easier by automatically grouping emails together into categories. It’s not unlike what Gmail already does with its tabbed inbox — primary, social, promotions, updates and forums sections — but Inbox makes it look good, far less clinical than Gmail proper.
