Nice -- you can now use the Android Device Manager "Find My Phone" feature right from the Google search box!

We’ve all been there — you’ve searched under your car seat, tossed around the sofa cushions and you still can’t find your phone. If you know where your computer is, you can now ask Google to find your Android phone from your desktop. If the pesky phone is hiding nearby, Google can ring it for you — or you can see it on the map if you, say, forgot it at the bar. Just make sure you’ve got the latest version of the Google app!___Nice -- you can now use the Android Device Manager "Find My Phone" feature right from the Google search box!

First-gen Moto G on sale for $25 (!) off-contract right now

That is an insane deal, even if it's a year-old phone. Just note that it's a Verizon Prepaid model, so it's presumably CDMA-only and won't work with a GSM carrier. Could still make for a solid Wi-Fi-only device for around-the-house use, though.

Seems to be a short-term sale, so jump on it fast if you want one.

This is getting to be a real problem -- and something I'm seeing far too often lately (on multiple devices, both with my account and with others): numerous Play Services-related errors piling up in the notification panel, accompanied by an authentication-related error when trying to get into the Play Store. Talk about a maddening loop.

The issue usually seems to resolve itself with a few attempts of opening and closing the Play Store app (and/or a few minutes of simply waiting it out, maybe while a new Play Services update downloads in the background), but man -- that is not a good user experience or something anyone should ever see.

This system is interesting for a couple of reasons. First, obviously, its price. But second, it has the same internals as the upcoming Asus convertible Chromebook -- the $249 Chromebook Flip.

Here's what it's like to use.

Handy new feature on one of my favorite Android Wear watch faces: an option to get a notification when your watch is on the charger and reaches 100%.

Love it when an already-awesome app just keeps getting better.

"By the end of each day, I was hyper-aware of how low the Apple Watch battery had gotten."

"You only get a charging cable, which is lame. For $700, you should a nice charging stand, like you get with the $249 Moto 360."

"There’s virtually nothing I can’t do faster or better with access to a laptop or a phone except perhaps check the time."

"There’s no question that the Apple Watch is the most capable smartwatch available today."

If you want the best possible camera or the longest possible battery life, the M9 isn't going to meet your needs. But if you can live with a phone that's decidedly average in those regards, HTC's new One will give you an experience that's delightfully extraordinary in others.

My in-depth review of the HTC One M9. This phone may be familiar, but it isn't forgettable.

Amusing reminder of the day: No matter your conclusion, it is impossible to write a review of a Samsung phone that doesn't piss people off.

Amusing reminder #2: Having an opinion that clashes with someone else's is now the same thing as having a "bias." The direction of your "bias" may change from one moment to the next, depending on the offendee's perspective in any given situation.

The Internet sure is a fascinating place.

Random pet peeve: I've never understood why HTC removes the "Screen" entry from battery stats on its devices. Probably more of an issue for reviewers than anything, but it's still an odd thing to go out of the way to remove.

Thank goodness for third-party battery stat apps.

Meet the Asus Chromebook Flip

Described as a premium, all-metal convertible touchscreen Chromebook. Launching "later this spring" for $249.

Before you get too excited, note that the system has an ARM-based Rockchip 3288 processor with 2GB of RAM. The display, meanwhile, is 10.1" and IPS, though only with 1280 x 800 resolution.

16GB eMMC storage, weighs "less than 2 lbs.," and "up to 10 hours" of battery life.

Will be interesting to spend some time with this bad boy and see what it's actually like to use.

An important update to my Chromebook Pixel review

In my original review of the 2015 Chromebook Pixel, I noted that the laptop's audio quality seemed rather underwhelming compared to the original Pixel, which had outstanding speakers. At the time, Google told me the new Pixel's speaker quality was comparable to the old model's and that what I was describing seemed like it might be a fluke defect.

After hearing complaints from some early adopters that echoed my observations, I reached out to Google following the review to inquire further about the new Pixel's speaker configuration. Upon further investigation, a representative informed me the speakers used on the first- and second-gen Pixel devices are, in fact, different sizes and shapes and that the laptop's internal configuration has also evolved. Consequently, the two models are "tuned differently"... more »

My review has been updated accordingly.

I am so incredibly tired of the emotional arguments over how Android Brand X is, like, so much better than Android Brand Z.

Being unconditionally married to a manufacturer or product line is the best way to tell the world your opinion is irrelevant. Come on, people. These are companies that sell us things. There's no need for ongoing blind loyalty or this weird sense of family-like pride toward a brand of mobile device. 

Can't we just evaluate each individual phone for what it is and -- gosh, I don't know -- have mature discussions without all the silly "my team against yours" arguments and childlike name-calling?

Probably not, I realize. But hey, a guy can ask. And at least now, I can link to this post and its lovely GIF every time a comment thread starts testing my patience.

About the Galaxy S6 and bloatware....

Forget what you might have heard: There's plenty of it. And though all but a few of the apps can be disabled (as is standard with most Android manufacturers these days), none can be easily removed.

That's the case for the U.S. T-Mobile version of the phone, at least. And to be clear, this is nothing out of the ordinary, especially for a carrier-connected phone; Android devices without this type of bloatware are more of the exception than the rule. I point it out only because of all the reports suggesting that Samsung was going to be doing something meaningfully different with preinstalled apps this go-round.

Thank you, carriers, for making it impossible to describe how much the Galaxy S6 costs without launching into a 12-part novel.

Seriously -- this may be the most confusing thing I've ever read about a phone's price. And this is just one of the carriers. (The rest aren't much better.)

Man -- after all that buildup, Feedly's big "Material Design overhaul" of its Android app sure is a little underwhelming, isn't it?

I'm still quite happy with the third-party app FeedlyReader, thankfully (see https://plus.google.com/+JRRaphael/posts/f15x51zcppC). It's almost everything I want in an RSS client -- though I must admit I'm getting a bit worried that it hasn't been updated since mid-January. Hopefully it's still being actively developed.

It's official: Acer has just confirmed it'll offer a Core i5 version of its new Chromebook 15

Launching in April for $500. 5th-gen (Broadwell) Intel Core i5 processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB SSD.

Other than the upgraded CPU, it's the same exact system I reviewed earlier this week: 

http://www.computerworld.com/article/2898232/acer-chromebook-15-review-a-large-laptop-with-ample-appeal.html

Probably not worth the extra $150 for most folks -- as you'll see in my review, the $350 Celeron model is actually quite capable -- but if you like this laptop and want the added horsepower, the option is available.

(Still no official word on pricing for the middle-ground Core i3 variant.)

Who says all Chromebooks should be compact? If you want a big-screened laptop that doesn't break the bank, Acer's new Chromebook 15 might be just the thing for you.

Lots to like about this device -- including solid performance and a 1080p IPS display.

This HTC free phone replacement plan is a pretty big deal. Hope more manufacturers follow suit.

Interestingly, Motorola unofficially did something similar to this for a while in the recent past. It wasn't advertised, but if you called and asked, they'd send a free Moto X replacement for practically any reason imaginable -- a broken phone, a scratched screen, you name it. I know several people who took advantage of it, some multiple times. But once the Lenovo transition went through, that quietly present practice seemed to go out the window. 

In any case, it's a powerful perk for HTC to offer and promote widely now. That's precisely the kind of thing a non-dominant OEM should be doing to provide extra value and make itself stand out.

Warning: This may be a bit different from other reviews you've read...

Some pundits are quick to pooh-pooh the idea of a high-end laptop for cloud-centric computing, but dismissing the Pixel for not being able to run traditional PC programs is missing the point.

I really wish there were a Google(+) Photos widget. Especially one that'd let you choose a specific album to be featured/flipped through.

Kinda weird that there isn't one, isn't it?

Writing about the new Chromebook Pixel on the new Chromebook Pixel (whoaaaa...)

So excited to be able to discuss this device with you guys. The new Pixel manages to address my biggest gripes about the original -- and with a price that's 300 bucks cheaper, at that.

I'll be taking my time with this review (call me crazy, but I still like to live with a device for a while before reaching conclusions and making recommendations!). Shouldn't be too much longer, though. And since I've been using the original Pixel as my own personal laptop for the past two years, you can bet I'll be including plenty of detailed real-world comparisons.

My review may also be a bit different from others in that it'll be from the perspective of someone who actually uses Chrome OS as opposed to someone who dismisses it with the tired and misguided old "Who would pay [x] dollars for a glorified Web browser?!" argument. As those of us who live with the platform know, there's far more to it than that -- and there are plenty of people for whom a cloud-centric approach makes more sense than a traditional PC environment (see http://goo.gl/tr8qsZ).

So, yeah -- interesting stuff ahead. Stay tuned.

Oh, and in case you missed it, my first look at the new Pixel is here:
