OnePlus promised to fix the One’s frustrating touchscreen issues for good with its latest CM11S software update, and yet lots of users are still taking to its forum to complain about the problem. According to one user, that’s because the issue has nothing to do with buggy software, but rather the way in which the handset has been put together.

ChargeKey

We all want better battery life for our smartphones, but until handset manufacturers begin adopting new energy technologies, we simply have to accept the boundaries that are imposed by today’s lithium-ion batteries. We can make our lives a little easier, however, by ensuring we always have a cable at the ready when our smartphones give up on us.

And what better way to do that than with the ChargeKey, a handy, pocket-sized micro USB cable that hangs off your keychain. For a limited time only, it’s just $24.99 thanks to Cult of Android Deals.

It’s never a good idea to leave home without a charging cable for your smartphone, but who wants to have to have to untangle a cable that’s been rolling around in the bottom of their bag all day? That’s not something you need to worry about if you have a ChargeCard.

This credit card-sized micro USB cable slips right into your wallet, ensuring you always have a charging cable with you wherever you go that never gets tangled or broken. And thanks to Cult of Android deals, you can get yours for just $24.99 for a limited time — that’s 21% off its usual price.

Google-cell-tower

Google has applied for a license to build a wireless network over its headquarters in Mountain View, California. The company submitted an application to the Federal Communication Commission last week requesting permission for an “experimental radio service” that would cover a two-mile radius around its building.

Some analysts believe the move could be the start of numerous dense and “superfast” Google wireless networks in other locations.

Google doesn’t have time to focus on products like this. It has an iPhone to beat.

Google is gearing up to offload Motorola’s set-top box business as it looks to concentrate its efforts on competing with Apple’s iPhone. The company has been trying to sell Motorola Home Business, which supplies set-top boxes to cable television providers, for around $2 billion, and it has reportedly received multiple offers already. Once it’s gone, Google will focus on high-end smartphones.
