5:32This episode of All About Android is brought to you by… Casper
Casper is an online retailer of premium mattresses for a fraction of the cost.
Casper is revolutionizing the mattress industry by cutting the cost of dealing with resellers and showrooms and passing that savings directly to the consumer.
http://casper.com/android0:05:00

.

JHBenefits of Casper…
Casper’s mattress is an obsessively engineered mattress at a fair price.
Two technologies (Latex and Memory foam) come together for better nights and brighter days.
It's a comfortable mattress that has just the right sink and bounce.
A Casper mattress provides long-lasting comfort and support

.

HOST: I got my new Casper mattress, we've been sleeping on it for a few weeks now and its super comfy, firm where it needs to be but a bit softer on top than our previous mattress which, after 11 years, I wasn't sure if I was going to like but.... Honestly, my wife and I are convinced. We've been sleeping like babies.

.

Oh and speaking of babies, if you have kids, the ginormous box that it ships in makes a great roller coaster ride.http://s27.postimg.org/mlg6dx0vn/IMG_20150215_191810.jpg<-- picture of kids in the Casper box

.

You can buy it easily online, and completely risk-free!
Casper understands the importance of trying out a mattress - Try sleeping on a Casper mattress today.
Casper offers free delivery and painless returns within a 100-day period so you don’t have to lie down in a showroom.
And did you know, statistically lying on a bed in a showroom has no correlation to whether it is the right bed for you.
Casper’s mattresses are made in the USA.

.

Offer/Call to Action
Get a Casper mattress - $500 for a twin or $950 for a king-size. Compared to industry averages, that’s an outstanding price.
And you can save an additional $50 as one of our audience members by going to casper.com/android and entering the promo code ANDROID.
That’s casper.com/android and promo code ANDROID.

Edit Notes:

.

.

TWiT BIT:
[1] Google still hasn't released an official chanelog for Android 5.1, even though there are a ton of Android One devices running on it. Here's what Android Police has found. Get ready for some earth shattering features! - Change WiFi/Bluetooth from the Quick Settings menu (as we've discussed before) - New clock animations in the clock app - The auto-rotate setting icon in the quick settings pane is animated when you tap it - Swipe up to throw the heads up notification to the tray - Hide a dynamic tile in quick settings byte long pressing it, and re-trigger it by manually selecting it in settings. Doesn't work on the big ones, just Hotspot and Invert Colors at the moment. - Screen Pinning is clarified and PIN entry for screen pinning is improved - Dialer can have different colors assigned to different SIMs in dual SIM devices - Priority and None volume settings include a new "Until Next Alarm" function.
[2] Samsung acquired LoopPay in a move that would enable its devices to be used for contact-less payments, as well as gift cards, loyalty and membership programs. LoopPay actually tricks normal credit card terminals by using a patented Magnetic Secure Transmission technology that beams data to the terminal and passes it off as a card that's been swiped. Obviously, this is a direct competitor to Google Wallet, though neither company wants to admit to tension between them.
[3] Then, Google announced yesterday that it is buying some IP offered by Softcard (formerly ISIS), which is a mobile payments app that up until now has been backed by the biggest US carriers… This means that Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T customers will have Google Wallet pre-installed as a result. Not long ago, these carriers were pushing back against Google by not allowing Google Wallet on some of their devices, opting for their own solution (ISIS or Softcard) instead.
[4] Ahead of this Sunday's big announcement, we are starting to see some solid images of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6. T-Mobile and AT&T both posted a promo image and labeled is "Six Appeal" showing a curved display ala the Note Edge. Word is that the phone will have the curved display on BOTH sides of the screen and not just one. Also, dark gray metal on the back. And Samsung has a 45 second teaser video for the S6 as well.
[5] HTC One M9 is also getting leaky ahead of next Sunday's announcement: The Verge has a bunch of rendered stills. And suddenly, we have three leaked promo videos detailing the phones in its entirety. Of note: 2-tone aluminum finish (silver and gold) Theming engine with user-created themes on the fly Home Widget that changes apps based on location Ultrapixel FFC, 20MP RFC, photo editing features, enhanced BoomSound, HTC Connect (use 3 finger gesture to send media)
[6] PROS It's curved. It's cool. And it just feels good in your hand. A high-performance processor with plenty of oomph CONS The single speaker on the back will kill your love for blasting music from your phone LG's version of Lollipop feels a little rushed
[7] 1. Wear received an update to version 5.0.2 that does some pretty minor bug squashing, particularly for Google Fit. 2. An Android developer was able to get a Moto 360 to work with an iPhone 6 by taking advantage of Apple's Notification Center Service APIs in the same way that Pebble does its Wear syncing. 3. And speaking of Pebble, thoughts on the new Pebble Kickstarter?
[8] Google released a new Youtube app aimed at kids called… YouTube Kids (imagine that).
[9] New update to Google Inbox brings support for tablets, as well as desktop support in Firefox and Safari. And, finally, Sundar Pichai went to twitter to answer a question that many people have about INBOX: when will it be Google Apps supported? Pichai said: (WHAT WOULD SUDNAR SAY) "INBOX by Gmail coming to more places… rolling out to apps customers imminently"
