HTC_Nexus_9_Teardown_01

The folks at iFixit took apart the Nexus 9, which of course revealed a lot of super cool hardware like the 64-bit Tegra K1. However, the teardown also revealed that if you’re looking to fix it on your own, it won’t be so easy. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being super easy, the Nexus 9 scored a 3.

Removing the rear case is easy enough, but once you get inside the “interior is a maze of tape and thin, delicate cables,” making your job very tedious. Even replacing the display proved to be difficult as it’s “insanely very solidly glued to the midframe.”

Disney Movies Anywhere is your one stop cross-platform shop for Disney, Pixar, and Marvel movies

Disney_Movies_Anywhere_Large_Icon

Disney just set history today by allowing you to purchase Disney, Pixar and Marvel movies from either iTunes or Google Play and use them on either platform. This all done through the Disney Movies Anywhere app, which was already available on iOS. With the launch on Google Play, both platforms work seamlessly.

All you have to do is create an account through the Disney Movies Anywhere app or your desktop browser. Once you link both your iTunes and Google Play accounts, movies that you purchased from either store will be visible and playable to you. This holds for not only the app, but also the Play Movies & TV app as well as iTunes. This means you can also utilize Apple TV and a Chromecast. In fact, you really don’t need the Disney Movies Anywhere app, but you might prefer it for playing your content on your tablet or phone.

For whatever reason HTC decided to offer a new variant of the Desire 820, dubbed the Desire 820s. From what we can tell, the only difference is the processor. It’s still 64-bit and octa-core, but instead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, you get a MediaTek MT6752. Both use Cortex-A53 cores, but the MediaTek clocks all the cores at 1.7 GHz, while the Snapdragon clocks half of the cores at 1.5 GHz and the other half at 1 GHz.

flipkart nexus 6

The Nexus 6 has been posted as a product page on Flipkart, an India-based online retailer, but is not yet for sale, as the device is still listed as “coming soon.”

When the phone was unveiled by Google, it was announced that it would be available in 28 counties, India being one of them — the device still isn’t available in India, but this could mark its entrance into the country.

It hasn’t been listen on Google Play in India, but we would expect it to show up soon.
