Phil Nickinson from our sibling site, Android Central, has just posted his complete Nexus 6 review, and like the Nexus 9 review Jerry Hildenbrand posted a couple days ago... I'm not sure what to think. For the last two years I've bought the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and both Nexus 7s automatically. Aside from the terrible cameras, they were pretty much no-brainers, especially since they were sold practically at cost. Now though?
The Verge's Josh Lowensohn has recently been partaking in a time-honored Internet technology tradition—light trolling. His method of choice? AirDrop, Apple's wireless file-sharing technology that allows you to send just about anything to iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

I get asked about iPhone 6 case recommendations a lot, especially for protective cases, especially by people whose occupations require them. For the last few years I've simply recommend Otterbox or LifeProof and been done with it.

Has anyone received comments from Otterbox about the issues?" — and, almost two months post-launch, the LifeProof for iPhone 6 still hasn't shipped. So, I'm left wondering — what should I recommend?
My friend and frequent podcast co-host, Don Melton, has recently updated his excellent scripts for transcoding video on the Mac. He cares about every pixel and every bit, and wants the very best results possible. Based on the feedback to date, so do a lot of other people. If you're one of them, here's the intro from the latest version, fresh from GitHub:
Starting today, we're changing the way iMore uses Twitter. The @iMore account is no longer going to automatically tweet every article we post. Instead, our editorial team is going to carefully, manually tweet only the stories we think are the most interesting and relevant to you, our readers and community. If you really want everything, just like RSS, you can follow the new @iMore_Firehose account. Otherwise, your timeline is about to get less full. So, why the change?
