Going digital used to be all the rage but now, there's a rapid trend to "go mobile".

Sorry, no Dark system theme for Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Android M, that fluffy Android Marshmallow is set to fully launch in the coming weeks but as expected and most of you already know, there are a number of changes we may encounter. We're still taking note of all those new features and changes but unlike Android Lollipop, this new mobile platform will do away with the dark system theme. You see, Material Design guidelines meant that Android should use a ligher theme more. It makes sense because a light theme is easier on the eyes. You can enable this by simply by making some changes on the Settings.

Google starts exploring three new cities for possible Google Fiber expansion

Major carriers in the US are pushing to advance 4G/LTE coverage while testing 5G connectivity that is still due in five years.

We somehow believed a McDonald's memo that it might be coming August 26 but as you all know, nothing was announced then.
