In good company? People overestimate bad behaviour in others, poll suggests
People in six countries thought more than half of workers had pulled a sickie in the past year, but under 25% said they had themselves, Ipsos Mori foundFeigning illness to take a day off work is much less common than people think, according to the results of an international survey that suggests the public overestimates undesirable behaviour in others.Averaging the results from the six countries polled by Ipsos Mori (the UK, US, Canada, Australia, France and Germany), the average guess was that 52% of workers in their nation have pulled a sickie in the past year, but only 23% admitted to having done so themselves.

Weekly poll results: The Note 5 versus S6 edge+
Last week we asked about who went out and bought one of Samsung's new Galaxy Note 5 or Galaxy S6 edge+ phones, and which one they picked up. As expected, the Note 5 wins this one. The Galaxy Note 5 received more than double the amount of votes in our unscientific poll compared to the S6 edge+. Everyone saw this coming. Even with availability in Europe a puzzling unknown (they gotta eventually sell it to the EU's millions and millions of Android consumers, right?) Samsung and seemingly everyone else has pushed the Note 5 as the premier Galaxy phone of 2015. Insert anecdotes about backwards pens, removable batteries and SD cards here. Of course, the requisite "No. Not buying" column gathered the most votes of any single choice with 42 percent. I have to include an option for the people not interested to have a voice, too. But still — this means 58 percent of the people voting grabbed one or the other. Naturally, this doesn't count the hundreds of millions of Android users who didn't vote at all. Slackers, each and every one of them. I kid. Maybe. What I really wanna know is who the 253 people who got both are. Holler in the comments if you're one of them.

Weekly poll: Did you pick up a new Note 5 or S6 edge+?
Since carriers started selling the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+, they have pretty much been the talk of the Android world. At least the Internet part of it. Lots of good things have been said — once again Samsung's screen is found to be the best in the business (no surprises there) — and of course there are some folks with issues. Memory management and S Pen insertion come to mind. But for the most part, I see a lot of happy people who bought a big fancy new phone. I like happy people. We all like happy people. Now we're curious about how many people out there got a new Note 5 or S6 edge+ and are quietly being happy. Take a minute and answer the poll to let everyone know if you grabbed a new Galaxy last week.

Weekly poll results: Our next has to have a great camera

Weekly poll: What feature is most important in your next phone?
We've seen the 2015 lineup from just about everyone now (hurry, Google), and there are some really nice phones out there waiting for us to trade money for them. From excellent mid-range models with an easy price tag, to the highest of the high end for those who want to go premium, chances are everyone will find one they like. And because we're Android junkies, we will all probably buy one. Or two. But the question of features, and which ones are the most important, always arises. We all want different things, and the most important thing is going to be different from person to person. Here's where you tell everyone what's most important to you. The poll is below. Do your thing, then get in the comments and let's talk. survey software JavaScript is disabled!

Poll: Are Skylake CPUs tempting you to upgrade?

Weekly poll results: The Moto G 2015 makes a pretty pie chart
In last week's poll, we asked if anyone picked up the new Moto G 2015. The results are about what anyone who's been paying attention would expect — split pretty evenly. We tried to include enough options to keep everyone happy, even including the "shut up about the Moto G 2015" option so you could tell us you're not interested. I'm happy that only 25 percent of the people who clicked on a post about the Moto G 2015 did so, then told us they don't want to know more about the Moto G. I'm also going to count those as "No" votes.

Weekly poll: Did you grab a Moto G 2015?
Historically, the Moto G has been the best selling Motorola smartphone of all time. It's the greatest. It floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee. Or something like that, at least according to Motorola. In reality, the latest incarnation — the Moto G 2015 — a darn good, cheap Android phone. It's built well, performs well, and this year has a decent camera. There's no wonder the initial run of the 16GB memory model (the one you should probably buy) sold out.

Weekly poll results: Most of us plug in when we move files
Our last weekly poll asked everyone about what method they use when they need to move a file from their phone or tablet to a computer, or vice-versa. For some of us, it's something we never have to do, but the majority of us still do it the old-fashioned way — with a USB cable. That's not surprising, and there is nothing wrong with doing it over a wire. Often times (and this is one of those times) the "old" way is still the best way. For about half of us, this is how we do it. The most interesting thing here is that 5-percent of us (212 out of exactly 4,000) have no need to ever copy files to and from a computer. I've a feeling that many of the people who voted that way are truly in a "post-pc" world and don't have a traditional computer. And I envy each and every one of them. The majority of folks who aren't using a USB cable for file transfer are doing it exactly how you would expect — through the cloud or with a wireless transfer app of one sort or another. That's where I fall in, because I can never find a USB cable on my desk when I need one. Look for a new poll on Tuesday, and in the meantime tell everyone how you voted in the comments below.
