If you’re in the market for a Samsung Galaxy S5 and just couldn’t decide where to get it, or you happen to need to pick up some toner at the same time, might we suggest Staples? Starting next week, you’ll be able to purchase the latest and greatest from Samsung from the office supplies and more store, specifically on April 20th (as that’s Easter day, we hope this also entails getting a chocolate Galaxy S5).
The Google Glass XE16 update that started rolling out earlier this week is now available as a factory image, for those interested in tinkering with the software on their Glass (or had been tinkering and broke it back enough that you need to start fresh). Photo replies in Hangouts and Bluetooth 4.0 LE are the biggest additions in the XE16 update, which also upped the base OS to Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

Be quick though, it only runs until Tuesday.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is available practically everywhere now, and from the major carriers in the U.S., but is also now making its way to prepaid carrier Ting. You’ll be getting the same phone that’s available everywhere else — this model’s obviously similar to the Sprint one as Ting runs on that network — but with a bit lower bill than your standard postpaid carrier.
Ting is offering the Galaxy S5 for $ 597 without a [Read More...]
