LG G Pro 2: setting up and using Knock Code

We have already posted our review of the LG G Pro 2, however a few new buzz words came along with this release.

Facebook Home update teased in first look video

Facebook Home originally launched back in April. This was right around the same time the HTC First Facebook phone launched with AT&T and while that handset has long since disappeared from the memories of many, it looks like Facebook is not quite ready to give up on Home.

Getting paid to use your device. That's exactly what Locket is offering.
