[Updated: Motorola and AT&T Devices Work On Sprint] PSA: CDMA Carriers Probably Won’t Activate Your Nexus 6 Unless It Was Purchased From Google Play Or That Carrier (And What You Can Do About It)

Nexus 6

Update: Motorola has announced that all Nexus 6 devices should be able to be activated on Sprint now. People are reporting successful activation of Motorola-purchased devices, and I was personally able to activate my AT&T Nexus 6 on Sprint by simply calling Sprint, giving them the MEID (IMEI minus the last digit) and the SIM card number I wanted to use. The device shows up under my account as a Nexus 6 and appears to be working beautifully.

When it comes to interior design, there are three categories of people: those who will get any item and place it anywhere, those will do their best to make things look good without going to extremes, and those who will agonize over every angle, size, color, and texture. If you fall somewhere between the second and third category, you’ll be happy to know that iOS-famous Home Design 3D is now available on Android.

Showtime Anytime Adds Chromecast Support

Showtime Anytime, the cable network’s Android app, has just received an update that adds Chromecast support. Essentially, the only change you will see in the app is that cast button, which lets you send your current screen and video streams to the television. By definition, TV series belong on the TV, don’t they? So now you can enjoy Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan’s riveting performances in Masters Of Sex on the biggest screen in the house.

The Nexus 6 Has A Hidden RGB LED That Can Be Used For Notifications With Root

nexus2cee_thumb2The Nexus 6 is a confounding beast. This big phone doesn’t have tap to wake functionality, but it does have ambient screen mode. This way of displaying notifications as they come in might be the reason there’s no LED notification functionality built in. There is, however, a physical LED.

The LED is positioned behind the top speaker/earpiece and can produce red, blue, and green light. It’s a lot like the green charging LED on the Moto X, but it appears apps like Lightflow can use it for notifications as long as you’re willing to root.

Some people already thrive on a diet of regularly delivered mental floss, preferring to watch content that actually leaves them feeling better after binge watching a few clips.

MX Player Updated With Android 5.0 Support, File Viewing Options, Easy Audio Track Disabling, And More

MXPlayer-ThumbMX Player is now ready for Android Lollipop. No, it’s not any prettier than it was before. There’s no Material Design to drool over, no bright colors, nor a floating action button to make us feel like we’re living at the end of 2014. This video player is largely the same app as before. Its developer has just removed the restriction that prevented it from running on 5.0 devices. Now people who rely on MX Player don’t have to do without when upgrading to Lollipop.

nexus2cee_att-logo_thumb

Update: Motorola has responded, claiming the blame lies with them for the situation – they mailed a number of Nexus 6s with incorrect firmware that would cause the phone to fail to start up properly. Pre-order customers are those most likely to be affected, and those persons will have an opportunity to replace their devices. Here’s the full statement:

We delivered a small number of Nexus 6 smartphones with incorrect software to AT&T customers who pre-ordered.

LG G Pad 8.3 GPE And NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Get Chromecast Screen Casting Support In What Continues To Be The Slowest Rollout In History

2014-11-21 13_29_09-Cast your Android screen from the Chromecast App - Chromecast HelpGoogle added screen casting support to a select few devices earlier this year, but the wide rollout has been very, very slow. Today there are two new devices listed on Google’s screen cast support page—The NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet and the LG G Pad 8.3 GPE.

2014-11-21 19.19.30

You don’t need to do anything to get your tablet ready for screen casting. This is a server-side change of some sort. Both these devices should have a tile in the quick settings for screen casting, but you can also use the Chromecast app to accomplish the same thing.
