OnePlus rumored to ditch CM, OneWatch plans leaked

It is only normal for OEMs to try to differentiate themselves in a very crowded mobile device market, but sometimes not all their "exclusive features" are well received (hello Samsung).

Qualcomm takes back DMCA threat on Github projects

The DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) is, more often than not, brandished too zealously and sometimes with little prior investigation in a "shoot first, ask questions later" style of legal (mis)management.
