If you’re like most Android users, you probably don’t have Android 5.0 Lollipop yet… and it turns out that might be a good thing. Computerworld’s JR Raphael has been using Lollipop for a while now and while he thinks the update overall is strong, he has picked out five crucial problems with it that he wants Google to fix as soon as possible.
Amazing but true: Amazon has created a product that’s even stinkier than the Fire Phone. GigaOM reports that Amazon has already pulled its Amazon Elements Soft and Cozy Diapers that it released just six weeks ago. The diapers were apparently pulled after Amazon listened to “early customer feedback” about them and it told early buyers that they’d be invited to try out future diapers whenever they became available.
Netflix absolutely crushed its earnings on Tuesday evening and shares skyrocketed more than 17% in after-hours trading as a result. The company added 4.33 million new streaming subscribers during the fourth quarter of 2014, and profit climbed to $83.4 million, up from $48.4 million in the year-ago quarter. Netflix had a great quarter indeed, and it was thanks in large part to some great new content that hit the service over the course of the three-month period. Now, the company has confirmed that another high-profile title will finally arrive on its digital shelves in just a few short days.
Having played through segments of The Order: 1886 several times over the past year, I’ve become increasingly intrigued by the alternate history represented in the game.

The Walking Dead has never been my cup of tea, but from what I’ve been hearing, the latest season has given the show new life (pun definitely intended). When we last left our colorful cast of characters, they had begun killing each other off at a frightening pace, and based on the new trailer, the killing isn’t going to slow down in the second half of the season.
One of the best things about Android is the shockingly vast range of great third-party apps in the Google Play store. Each new app expands the capabilities of your phone or tablet in any number of exciting new directions. When you first install a new app though, some of the more presumptuous developers configure their apps to automatically add a shortcut to your home screen. Then, if it’s not an app you want on your home screen, you have to go and manually remove it.
If you thought that Apple had fun successfully suing Samsung for alleged patent infringement, just wait to see what happens if Xiaomi ever brings its devices to the U.S. Xiaomi has posted a new video that tries to make fun of Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus and promote its own Mi Note, but the company just inadvertently shows how much its phones rip off Apple’s.
Here at BGR, we try to cover all of the latest advancements in the world of technology, but occasionally it’s fun to take a look back at the devices that we’ve replaced over the years.
