Recently, we posted about a new feature Google was testing to help users better "explore" their surroundings, offering more fine-tuned exploration options for a user's immediate vicinity or their destination, with suggestions of what to do in the area based on time of day or conditions. The interface would apparently get its own button in Google Maps' primary view, but the button only appeared for a few users at the time.

Alpha1-ThumbHold on to your butts, everyone. I'm about to drop some news that will blow your minds. Samsung has a new phone in the works, and there's one thing that will supposedly make this thing different from all of the others. SamMobile has leaked images of the upcoming Galaxy Alpha, a Galaxy S5 variant that will apparently be constructed at least in part out of aluminum.

As you can see in these screens, the phone won't look strikingly different regardless of what it's made of.

Cyanogenmod-logoPerhaps you don't remember the Xperia L – this 2013 handset never made much of a splash in the US. However, it's proven a popular bidget device internationally. It probably won't be seeing a ton of update love through official channels, but at least you'll have CyanogenMod. The first nightly build is available for the Xperia L right now.

The Xperia L has a FWVGA resolution (854x480) LCD, a dual-core Snapdragon, 8MP camera, and runs Android 4.2.

Like other Google I/O attendees, I picked up an Android Wear device at the conference. I went with the LG G Watch. What follows is not really a review so much as my experiences and thoughts about Wear thus far, having lived with it literally every day since picking it up. I'll include some of my opinions on the platform (ignoring for now the hardware), and what I think might be relevant insights and comparisons to Google's other efforts (like Glass).

unnamed (9)Amazon's Prime Music service, a free add-on for anyone who's already a Prime subscriber, launched to a resounding "meh." The app and service functions well enough, but with plenty of alternatives both free and paid, Amazon's boast of "over one million songs" rang somewhat hollow. As a Prime subscriber myself, I saw it as a nice perk, but it's no reason to stop paying for Google Play Music All Access as well.

verizon-htc-1024x64022Gigantic Verizon logo on the back? Check. Completely unnecessary Verizon logo on the front? Double check. That's the HTC One Remix, which is essentially the One Mini 2, if Verizon followed any sort of rational naming convention. It's official now (for real this time), and it's coming July 24th for $99.99 with a new contract.

The One Remix has a 4.5-inch "HD" screen, which means 720p in this context.

tf701t_02Asus is still releasing Transformer tablets on a regular basis, but most of them are mid-range. The premium device in the Transformer family is still the TF701T, and it's getting an update to Android 4.4.2 right now. The OTA is happening, but it looks like a slow staged rollout.

Asus has kept up with the TF701T fairly well. It's running a few months behind the curve (Android 4.3 was in December), but at least it's still getting OTAs.

SuccessKidWhen certain things finally happen, they make us want to search for that hidden ladder that takes people up to the rooftop and scream "Hallelujah," religious or no. This is one of those things. Google apparently no longer requires people with two-factor authentication enabled to sign in twice when setting up a new Android device or adding another account. Better yet, this change doesn't require Android L or anything fancy. Here's a video of the magic taking place on an HTC One M8.

imageApparently, segmenting your customized software into easily-updatable Play Store apps is a popular trend. HTC is the latest to get on board, presumably because the person who makes the keyboard work is tired of waiting on the whole Sense team to put an over-the-air firmware update together. HTC published extra language packs back in April, and now Sense users can get timely updates for the keyboard as well.

You know the drill: this will only work on compatible HTC hardware, so don't even try it on other phones or tablets.
