Now in its second developer preview, Android O brings a number of performance improvements and new features.

PayPal takes Pandora to court over its big blue P

PayPal filed a trademark infringement suit against Pandora on Friday, claiming that the radio app’s blue P logo is “unlawfully similar” to PayPal’s own blue double-P icon. Pandora debuted its new sans-serif logo in October of last year as part of an overall company rebrand. Apparently it was too similar to the layered blue P logo that PayPal has been using since 2014, as the payment company claims Pandora is hurting PayPal customers who are confusing the two apps. In my opinion, the most amusing part isn’t the plethora of social media chatter published in the lawsuit. It’s PayPal’s evident disdain with the idea…This story continues at The Next Web

Far Cry 5 takes the series to the Montana mountains

Ubisoft just dropped the teaser trailer for Far Cry 5. As Abhi predicted, it’s on the way and set in Montana, either in the modern day or in the relatively-recent past. The trailer doesn’t show much besides the sweeping countryside and picturesque mountains of Big Sky Country. But that in and of itself is a big gear change for the series. Far Cry has run mostly on exoticized depictions of non-Western settings. Here’s the laundry list: Far Cry 1: Micronesia Far Cry 2: Sub-Saharan Africa Far Cry 3: Unnamed island in the Pacific Far Cry 4: The Himalayas Far Cry Primal: The Mesolithic…This story continues at The Next Web
