When your baby seems to be sick and colicky, taking their temperature can be a bit of a challenge.

Samsung rumored to make bloatware optional, downloadable

Englightenment or desperation? Whichever your take on Samsung's motives, the Korean OEM is now reported to be slimming down its phone's experience even further. In addition to making the TouchWiz aesthetic fall in line with the new Material Design, it will also be moving much of its less frequently used but pre-installed apps out of the default installation and into Google Play Store, or perhaps its own GALAXY Apps Store, paving the way for a more Nexus-like experience of Samsung devices.

Motorola outs new Moto G with 4G in Brazil

Before 2014 ended, we noted that a new Moto G is coming to Brazil with 4G/LTE connectivity and a bigger battery. It wasn't exactly a rumor because it was spotted on Motorola's Brazilian website. We didn't have to wait long as the Lenovo-owned Motorola has just launched a new version of the 2nd-generation Moto G in the country. Main features are still the same but with the addition of 4G support and Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.

Low supply and delay of Nexus 6 caused Google’s Q4 slow growth

It's that time of the year when big companies are releasing their earnings reports for the previous quarter. Yesterday, we learned about Qualcomm's positive numbers for the first quarter of its 2015 fiscal year. And a few hours ago, it was Google's turn to make an earnings call and show off how the search giant is doing the past quarter. Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette shared the highs and lows and noted that Google didn't hit the goals because of the low Nexus 6 supply and the exchange rate between international consumers and the United States.

OnePlus names own Android ROM as Oxygen, Hydrogen in China

It's no secret that OnePlus is cutting its ties with Cyanogen over the fiasco with Micromax in India. It has been developing its own custom ROM to replace CyanogenMod in its future devices. And while it isn't yet revealing what that ROM will look like or will offer, it is now announcing its chosen name. Its ROM will be called "Oxygen OS", at least in the rest of the world. But in China, it will be called Hydrogen instead.

Microsoft invested in Cyanogen’s anti-Google war chest, says tip

According to sources familiar with the matter, Microsoft has invested in Cyanogen, Inc., making a small contribution in the $70 million of the $100 million that the startup claims to have been able to raise. The startup has so far only accounted for the $30 million of the total. More than just a magnanimous donation, however, this move is seen to be Redmond's play to wrest control of Android away from Google, a sentiment that it shares with Cyanogen. Of course, this rumor is likely to raise many mixed emotions over the future of the platform and Microsoft's involvement.

Photo of 2nd-gen Moto E leaked

We haven't heart much about the Moto E but a recent rumor gives us an idea that the 2nd-generation might be coming soon. It's another budget smartphone alright because the Moto E was popular in the cheap phone category with its sub-$150 price tag. And now that Motorola is owned by Lenovo, there's more reason for the mobile group to work harder than before.
