Google responds to Project Loon objections, tells FCC balloons are safe & legal

Material Design-based theme now available for Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge

Update: It looks like some are having a hard time finding the theme on the Theme Store. It’s not clear if it has been pulled, but we’ll update when we learn more.
