Whether you're just "in it for the commercials" or you're cheering on a team, you can watch from mobile if you have to
We can't all be comfortably seated in the best spot in the living room with a huge plate of wings and a threatening glare toward anyone who dares to even think about touching the remote control this Sunday night. For reasons passing understanding, Super Bowl Sunday is not a national holiday yet. As a result, you may have obligations that put you somewhere that doesn't have the big game playing. The good news is there are mobile options if you're able to watch. The bad news is, if you want to watch live, there's not a lot of them.
The Mobi S-Line Case is a slim, form-fitting TPU cover that wraps around your Galaxy S4 to protect against drops and scratches while providing an enhanced grip. It adds very little bulk and is completely flexible, making installing and removing the case very easy. Comes in 8 colors, too!
Hold me tender with this smartphone car kit
The iOttie Easy One Touch 2 Car Mount is quite a mouthful. It's also quite a handful when you pick it up, as it resembles some sort of unholy union between a medieval torture device and a siege engine. Don't get me wrong, the iOttie is a wonderful mount with a lot of bells, whistles, and especially a lot of moving parts. It's also sporting a budget friendly price, but do all those moving parts add up to a stand that's worthy of your dashboard or a massive mechanical migraine?
HTC’s Vice President of Product Management, Mo Versi, announced today that the company will not be able to meet its promise of updating the One M7 and One M8 to Lollipop within 90 days from the day of the release of the code. Even before Google had released Android 5.0, HTC had announced that it

Google recently moved their Google Glass project from the Google[x] lab to a new home with the Nest team. Now they are graduating another project from its development home. Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group, or ATAP, has announced that they are “transitioning” Project Tango out of their group, although it is unclear where Project Tango is going to end up within the Google organization.
Project Tango launched a couple years and ATAP indicated that was long enough for a project to exist within ATAP. Project Tango is an attempt to bring technology that can build a virtual 3D map based on sensors detecting a device’s position in space. As an example, the team used their technology to build some self-propelled SPHERES for NASA to use in space.
Google indicates they are “committed to moving the technology forward” but no other details were available about how that is going to pan out.

This weekend was supposed to be the deadline for HTC to update the HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7) with Android Lollipop. However, Mo Versi with HTC has issued a statement via the HTC web site to let owners of carrier versions of those devices know the update is not going to happen. Versi indicates HTC decided to opt for ensuring the “rollout is right” even if it means missing the target date of 90 days after Google released the code.
In the statement, Versi indicates part of the problem has been on Google’s end as they work to “address several issues with this release” referring to Lollipop. HTC points out that the Google Play, Unlocked, and Developer Edition of the HTC One (M8) have received the Lollipop update already. However, other versions such as those sold by the carriers are still not ready. Versi says that if the update does not “result in an even better experience with your device” it would defeat the purpose of the update.
HTC has not issued a revised timeline for the update to be available for the affected versions. They invite owners of the impacted devices to continue to watch their Software Updates page and their @HTCUSA Twitter account for updates.
