Future Moto Z users: Beware free storage from Google

Future Moto Z users: Beware free storage from Google

Verizon Galaxy S7 update adds DT Ignite bloatware platform

Verizon Galaxy S7 update adds DT Ignite bloatware platform

There are two banes to a smartphone user's existence these days, and both of them start with the letter "B": Batteries and Bloatware. Both can be temporarily remedied by band-aid solutions but still aren't the ideal first experience. While batteries fall on the shoulders of OEMs, bloatware is mainly a responsibility of carriers. One major US carrier is taking advantage of that position. Verizon has just rolled out an update to the Samsung Galaxy S7 that could pretty much be considered a trojan horse (the figurative sense, not the malware) since, along with probable bug and security fixes, it also installs Digital Turbine's Ignite software on the device.
