Think of the number one billion. A billion of just about anything is a lot - people, bananas, cars, pints of novelty ice cream flavors. According to a report published by market research firm Strategy Analytics, the number of Android powered smartphones shipped last year was approximately one billion, forty-one million, seven hundred thousand (give or take a few tractor-trailers worth). That's about one Android phone for every seven people on the planet, not counting tablets, set-top boxes, and other Android-powered devices.

Way back in the bygone days of December 2014, we told you that mega-publisher Ubisoft was teaming up with the nostalgia specialists at DotEmu to bring the turn-based strategy classic Heroes of Might and Magic III to Android. Today they published the revived game in the Play Store, right on schedule (those DotEmu folks are pros, I tell ya). You can buy the game for $9.99 - pricey, but not unreasonable - for tablets and tablets only.

CaastMe-Thumb

There are no shortage of ways to get links from one device to another, but this often involves signing up for a service and leaving behind a record of what you're sharing. CaastMe is a new Android app that has an innovative way of getting around this, account free.

The software relies on QR codes, but it uses them in the opposite of the way you would expect. Instead of prompting your device to open a URL, CaastMe tells the computer displaying the code where to go.

As a wise man once said, all good things must come to an end. (I'm fairly certain it was Captain Picard.) So its is with a handful of mobile RPGs and tower defense games from developer Spacetime Studios. In a post on the company's official forum, CEO Gary Gattis said that the games Arcane Battlegrounds, Battle Dragons, Dark Legends, Pocket Legends, and Star Legends will not be getting any future updates, including the standard weekly bonuses and seasonal events.

Over a year after quietly introducing the feature in the USA, Google has added the ability to send money through Gmail in the United Kingdom. While Google likes to emphasize the fact that you're sending the money through Gmail, it's really done via Google Wallet. The main benefit is that you can embed the send/receive request within an email message and Google will do the heavy lifting for you in terms of enticing the recipient to sign up for a Wallet account, if necessary.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a big tablet. Unsurprisingly, it comes with a hefty price tag to match. Back when it launched early last year, the 32GB Wi-Fi version came priced at $749.99, and the price has only dropped down to $599.99 on Amazon in the time since. AT&T still sells its 4G LTE-enabled version at $899.99.

Let that sink in.

Then take a look at eBay, where refurbished AT&T units are currently going for $379.99.

Tucked inside yesterday's Chrome Beta update to v41 was a handy new feature for privacy-minded users and everyone who likes to practice safe web browsing. Although we updated the post with the feature, we thought it better to highlight it again in a separate article.

If you head to Chrome Beta's Settings, under Site Settings, you'll find that the Cookies option has been switched from one check box to become its own subset of options.

Beside Energous, the most novel company I met with at CES 2015 was Saygus. Here was this start-up I hadn't heard about touting a superphone of sorts, with bells and whistles to rock most bells and blow most whistles, an unconventional product that seemed, on paper, more hallucinogenic than the most optimistic crowd-funding project you've come across. But my time spent with the Saygus team revealed a bit more to the story.

Microsoft's Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps have been in preview on Android for a few months, first as an invite-only preview then as an open one. Now Redmond appears to be moving forward with the real deal—the preview label is gone, and the final versions are rolling out.
