nexusae0_Gear2-Thumb_thumbAs Samsung continues to forge ahead with its own wearable plans, the Korean OEM is faced with a problem – apps. To encourage developers to start using its Gear 2 Tizen SDK, Samsung will be running an App Challenge starting May 8th. Cash prizes will total $1.25 million, and the first place winner will get $100,000.

The original Galaxy Gear wasn't in a great place with apps, but at least it was based on Android.

If there's one thing Verizon's known for, it's high prices. Errr, constant changes that end up costing consumers more money. No, that's not right either. Umm...red! That's it. If there's one thing Verizon's know for (aside from high prices and finding ways to charge customers more money) it's red. You know, the color. That's why we call it "Big Red." Heh.

Anyway, since Verizon is oft-associated with red, it looks like the company will be getting a red HTC One M8, according to @evleaks.

It was just last week that the Google Glass team started pushing out eagerly awaited update to XE16. It was followed less than 24 hours later by a silent hotfix dubbed XRE15C. Unfortunately, these updates left many Glass owners with complaints about stability and an even shorter battery life than the device was already known for. Yesterday, in a bid to resolve some of these issues, the team began rolling out a new update to XE16.1.

MotoX-ThumbUpdate: As commenters have pointed out, the $349.99 Moto X is only available from Republic Wireless. The other carriers are still selling the device for $399.99.

Note, Republic Wireless will sell you a Moto X directly for $299.99, but it only offers black or white at that price range.

The $349.99 Moto X from Amazon will work with GSM carriers such as AT&T or T-Mobile, so there are still some savings to be found here.

1309665_tabimg_htconem8_l_230x275One of the selling points of HTC's Advantage program is free Google Drive space. Of course, that's not as interesting as the free screen repair or update guarantee, but it's still part of the package. HTC has just posted a message on its Advantage website that alerts customers to a problem with the Google Drive deal. An error of some sort is preventing M8 owners on AT&T from redeeming that 50GB offer.

Background-ThumbTaking the background in an image and blurring it is currently the big thing in mobile photography. HTC touted the feature when raving about the M8's duo camera. Google added a similar lens blur effect in the camera app it recently uploaded to the Play Store. Samsung, too, unsurprisingly packed this feature in alongside the plethora of others it crams into the Galaxy S5. Now Sony has uploaded its pre-existing effort to the Play Store, where it can more easily roll out future updates.

GoogleMaps-ThumbWhat's the point of being one of the world's most powerful tech companies if you can't use those resources to travel back in time? Google is tackling this conundrum head on with the ability to roll back the clock in Street View. From the comfort of Google Maps on a desktop, users can select various periods in time to see how locations have changed.

Google is rolling out this feature starting today.

s5Better late than never, right? Though the first update for Sprint's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 isn't a hugely important one, at least according to its own changelog, some users over at XDA were eagerly awaiting it. It appears that at least some users are now getting the update. In the nature of these things, it may take a bit of time to get around to all the S5 owners on Sprint.

Guys, the final piece of the puzzle is now in place: Amazon just announced that FireTV will be getting HBO GO. Since it launched without the service, it raised the question of whether it would ever be available to FireTV users; it looks like Amazon was just busy inking the deal with HBO, because there's actually even more to this story than that.

Not only will GO be coming to FireTV, but Amazon now has exclusive multi-year rights to certain HBO shows that will be available on Prime Instant Video.
