Ready for some April Fools' Day fun? We have Motorola announcing its selfie stick ambitions, Samsung is taking to the kitchen, and OnePlus is aiming for the skies.
Samsung is busting out two flagships this spring. Which has your eye?
In one hand, we have the Samsung Galaxy S6. It's the next iteration of the insanely popular Galaxy S line, and while some major changes in the battery and storage department have come along, it's the "traditional" choice and an expected successor. People are gonna love it.
In the other hand, we have the Galaxy S6 edge (it kills me not to capitalize the e). Sleek, curvy and dare I say pretty, it's the Galaxy S6 with a new style and a few cool side-a-licious things going on with it's curved front display. Welcome to the future, baby. People are gonna love it, too.
Which one are you going to buy? Or are you going to buy both? Or neither? Take the poll, then tell us why in the comments.
LG announced that customers who purchase a G3 from participating retailers in the U.S. will also score a free VR headset starting today.
The headset is basically a plastic version of Google Cardboard, but built specifically for the LG G3 with cutouts for the device's rear buttons. Like Google Cardboard, all users have to do is slot their device into the VR headset to start enjoying virtual reality content right from their device.
LG G3 owners who are willing to hop on a computer and use LG's support tool will be able to update their T-Mobile LG G3 to Lollipop.
The Lollipop update for the T-Mobile LG G3 is now available through the LG mobile support tool. While the update doesn't appear to be pushing out over-the-air yet, a quick connection to your computer will allow you to update now.
Your Chromebook is more than a browser. Chrome is a complete application platform, and crafty developers have built out the Chrome Store with apps that fill just about every requirement a modern laptop needs — including text editors.
I write for a living. Anything from thousands of words to review a smartphone or tablet, or a smattering of code for a small project, or just a list of things I don't want to forget. I write a large portion of it all on my Chromebook. I've tried most every app for writing things down in the Chrome Store, and keep coming back to a few different apps that are the best at what they do.
Have a look, give them a try and tell us what you think.

There's a big difference between open and functional, and it's not always easy to get both when it comes to ePub apps.
You may not be aware of this, but if you're a fan of ebooks there's a good chance you have a collection of ePub files sitting around. There may be some unfortunate DRM in between you and those files, but they almost certainly exist. Generally speaking, the ePub format is the standard for digital books that aren't sold by or made for Amazon. It's a format that has been around for a long time, due largely to its flexibility, and as a result there are no shortage of apps out there to handle ePub files.
All you really need to know is how to get to those formats, and know the best way to enjoy those books when you're not bound to apps like Google Play Books or Kindle.
Google announced today that Chromecast support has come to four new apps, including TED, MTV, Pac-12, and Qello.

Google is usually good for some April Fools jokes, this time putting Pac-Man on the streets of Google Maps and into their alternate-reality game, Ingress.
Pac-Man can be played right now on Google Maps, utilizing the streets of the map as the course. Users can play on streets of their own town on the web, or in select areas on mobile devices. Google has listed a bunch of clues of where to find Pac-Man on mobile devices, but if you want to just get down and play try searching for "Arc de Triomphe".
The Moto X's camera is more than adequate if you know your way around it.
Motorola's original Moto X didn't have the greatest camera in the world. The 2014 model is a marked improvement, but still not as big or powerful as newer models like the Samsung Galaxy S6. It's a 13-megapixel shooter, and it's got a camera app that brings with it some of our favorite camera features and not a whole lot else. And we're going to show you how to make the most of that camera when you just have to get a shot — or a selfie — right now.
HTC has confirmed that it's shutting down its Sense TV app at the end of April, and moving users over to the Peel app bundled on the One M9.
Owners of the Windows Phone version of the HTC One M8 have noticed that the Sense TV app, which functions as a smart TV remote using the built-in IR blaster, has started notifying them that the service will be shut down from April 30. The move isn't surprising given that HTC's shipping a regular Peel remote app instead of Sense TV on its latest One M9. However we now have confirmation from HTC that the move away from Sense TV is taking place, and that it'll affect Android owners as well as its most recent Windows device.
The Sense Home Widget on the HTC One M9 is trying its hardest. It's taking a look at where you are, when you're there and what apps you're using and then surfacing them to the home screen in its predictive, adaptive widget. And it does OK. But sometimes you might want to make sure an app stays put, say, while you're at home versus on the road. And for that there's "pinning."
And this is how you pin an app to the home screen in Sense 7.
