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.

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.

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.
