Nexus 7 gets update to Android 4.4.4 one day after Google posts the factory image for the new build

The factory image is posted by Google as a way to help those who like to customize their devices. Let's say you have accidentally bricked your tablet, or don't want to miss an update that will bypass those who rooted their device. The factory image will allow you to update your device so it appears as though it just came out of the factory.
And that sets up an interesting situation. Those who don't want to wait for the Android 4.4.4 update to reach them, can decide to use the factory image and install the new Android build now. Or, you can play it safe and wait for the update to hit your tablet.

Nexus 7 got the 4.4.4 update quite some time ago when it was initially released. Only the LTE variant didn't get it until now. This article is quite misleading due to false information.

Alan works hard, I'll give him that! Weekdays, weekends, holidays - he's there, trying to give us news as much and as quickly as he can! I hope he's sufficiently incentivized for that. But when it comes to Journalistic ethics, he's a disaster - often giving wrong, sensationalized info/articles that sometimes can be irritating. Maybe there's something to learn. P.S. - My Nexus 7 got it's 4.4.4 quite sometime ago!

Man, is there a fix already for the buggy screen?

I've noticed sensitivity on my screen is not very good. I have "show touches" enabled, and it sometimes takes 3 touches before the screen registers my input. It's mostly when I play one of my games, so it could have more to do with that game, than the actual screen itself.

No its not the game, many reported touch issues upon release. I didn't think I had any issues until using it for some time, but mine also has touch issues. For the most part it's a trooper and I've traveled a bunch with it and it performs well, but I will not miss it once the Nexus 8.9 is released.
