I know there are a lot of you with an Android TV device (Nexus Player or ADT-1 for now) that want to browse the web. It’s already possible by sideloading the APK of a browser app such as Chrome, but it won’t work properly with the remote control or game controller. Instead, you will need a mouse in order to navigate, which can be a pain in the you know what.
A new leak regarding the next generation Motorola Moto 360 indicates the company has plans to increase the resolution of the screen to 360 by 360. This is not the first time this screen resolution has surfaced in connection with the new Moto 360. Recently, a device named “Smelt” showed up on a developer’s console with the same 360 x 360 resolution. This new resolution means the screen should look a little better and also hints that Motorola may have figured out a way to get rid of the lip on the screen.
Sources have revealed that Google is engaged in talks with Hong Kong conglomerate Hutchison Whampoa, owner of U.K. wireless carrier Three, to establish a “small scale” mobile network. The network does not appear to be one that consumers could sign up for regular service, serving instead as a means for U.S. travelers to use their phones while traveling abroad without incurring expensive international charges. Ultimately the wireless service in overseas locations would be tied back to Google’s attempt to create a U.S.-based mobile network to compete with the existing major carriers.

Last last week, SquareTrade released a video showing how bendable the Galaxy S6 Edge is. In fact even more bendable than the iPhone 6 Plus. Now Samsung is refuting the claim, and with good reason.
Samsung claims that the video shows the Galaxy S6 Edge being bent (and broken) under a pressure of 110lbf (50kgf). However, that kind of pressure just isn’t the norm. The majority of concern comes from the back pocket, which only generates about 66lbf (30kgf). Samsung’s own testing shows the Galaxy S6 Edge cannot be bent under 79lbf (32kgf). That level of pressure would snap a bundle of five pencils at once.
