When we buy gadgets, it's usually with the expectation that their useful lifetime will carry us at least until we're ready to replace them, and hopefully well beyond. Most people assume their smartphones should last at least two years, in part because contract customers in the US are accustomed to unreasonably high upgrade prices for mid-term upgrades, and also because most manufacturers have adopted yearly release cycles that fit well with this pace.

New smartphones are rolling off the line pretty regularly, and that means the tools we use to work with them have to update, too. Last month, Sunshine v3.0 emerged with support for an extensive collection of HTC and Motorola handsets, and now an update to v3.1 is about to build on that list. With the latest release, Justin Case and Beaups have added support for almost every variant of the HTC One M9, except Verizon's.

According to a Yahoo Finance exclusive, Google Wallet is now a little bit safer. Yahoo Finance reports that Google Wallet balances are now FDIC-insured, and that Google is accomplishing this by storing Wallet balances in FDIC-insured banking institutions. For reference, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insures a depositor's funds for banking institutions up to $250,000.

As Yahoo Finance points out, services like Wallet, Paypal, or Venmo are considered "non-banking institutions," meaning that they aren't legally required to be federally insured, and indeed Paypal and Venmo currently aren't (though Paypal does offer its own account protection measures).

htc-one-m9-360-0001Sprint got it last week, now T-Mobile is the next in line. The flagship HTC One M9 leaves a lot to be desired in the camera department, at least on the stock version of the phone's software. HTC has issued a small update that should dramatically improve camera quality, though it has to be said that the comparison shots we've seen thus far are still noticeably behind other recent high-end Android phones.

GalaxyS4-ThumbWhen Sprint rolled out its Spark, it introduced a second variant of the Galaxy S4 that was compatible with the faster network. A reader has reached out to let us know that his Spark-compatible version has received an update to Android 5.0. Sure enough, Sprint has updated the support page to say that the software has started going out to devices. The release bumps phones up to version L720TVPUCOD1.

A separate support page for the Galaxy S4 remains unchanged, leading us to believe that the original Galaxy S4 isn't getting a taste of Lollipop just yet.

nexus2cee_lollipop.pngRemember 5.1? Psh, old news. The new hotness is Android 5.1.1, which Google has yet to officially acknowledge. However, it's almost a certainty now that two builds of the software have popped up on Google's Android audio latency info page.

The builds are LMY47S for the Nexus 9 and LMY47W for the WiFi Nexus 7 2013. Both of them have a build date of February 16th, but we don't know if these will be the exact builds to roll out to devices.

Back in 2011 when Amazon released its App Store, we cited the ability to try apps out in your browser before downloading as one of its top features. Later, you could also do that on phones and tablets. Well, things have changed. First, after an announcement made today, you will no longer be able to do this with apps from Amazon's store. Second, you probably won't miss it too much.

When Google searching on a small screen, the part of the result that shows you a page URL isn't always very helpful. Anything but the top-level domain will probably be truncated. Especially within familiar sites, the mixture of page title and shortened URL may leave you unclear what part of the website you will navigate to once you click. Google is making a subtle change to clear things up. Let's jump straight to the example images:
