Bertel King, Jr.
Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

Lookout-Thumb

An update is rolling out to the Lookout security app with a new feature tucked away exclusively for premium account holders. This feature is theft alerts. After the alerts have been enabled, Lookout will send phone owners an email automatically when the phone starts engaging in behavior that indicates it could have been stolen. This way you get notified as soon as shenanigans begin, rather than having to manually check for the device's location yourself.

Xperia-Thumb

The Xperia Z2 doesn't support wireless charging out of the box, but Sony has just announced two accessories for the flagship device that will be able to scratch that particular itch. The two products include a flip cover that enables the device to work with Qi wireless chargers and an official Sony-branded circular base to set it on.

BBCiPlayer-Thumb

BBC has just pushed the Go button on its big iPlayer redesign. Now an updated version of the app is available in the Play Store that introduces tweaks to the way users stumble across new things to watch. The changes are apparent on the home screen, where the refined focus on discovering content is apparent right from the go. There are also new pages for browsing channels and perusing through categories.

Chromecast-Thumb

Today's a big day for Chromecast. Earlier today we reported that Google's little magic media stick was ready to stream shows to TVs in Japan and Austrialia. Now we see that the device has also arrived in Belgium, Norway, Portugal, and Switzerland as well.

Update: The devices section of Google Play may have just opened its virtual doors in Norway, but the Chromecast has actually been available in the country for two months now.

Romans-Thumb

The heyday of the Roman empire may have passed many, many moons ago, but that doesn't mean the quest for glory ever truly faded away. Soldiers have merely set their eyes towards conquest on a smaller scale. These determined Roman troopers may not be able to conquer the world, but one day they should be able to call this entire room their own. Erm, or something like that.

Romans In My Carpet!

HumbleBundle-Thumb

The latest Humble Bundle has landed, and this time it's offering seven-ish games out of the gate. To clarify that "ish" - those who pay under the average will receive Draw a Stickman: Epic, a copy of Galcon Legends (single-player) that comes with Galcon Fusion (multiplayer), and a beta version of Symphony. This equates to three or four games depending on whether you count Galcon as a single package and/or don't mind playing a title that's still in beta.

AmazonAppstore-Thumb

Update: This deal applies to select other PC digital downloads as well. Some are free, while others may set you back around a dollar.

Square Enix is currently offering a demo for Dungeon Siege III on Amazon that will reward you with $5 in free Amazon Appstore credit just for downloading it. This is virtual money that you can then turn around and spend on any Android apps or games you want (assuming Amazon offers them).

WatchDogs-Thumb

As a game centered around using a smartphone to get ahead on the streets of Chicago, it's only natural that Watch Dogs would get a companion app. But this isn't your typical bonus offering that just provides a mini-map, some background information, and a few doodads. Watch_Dogs Companion: ctOS is a multiplayer extension to the main game. While console or PC players are doing everything they can to make it from checkpoint to checkpoint, mobile gamers are giving their all to stop them.

ExciteGo-Thumb

Getting your hands on a budget tablet for around a hundred bucks isn't particularly challenging, but these decidedly underwhelming gadgets typically don't come with the latest version of Android. Toshiba intends to do budget shoppers one better by providing them with a 7-inch tablet with Android 4.4, all for $110. This little guy goes by the name of Excite Go.

VibeZ2Pro-Thumb

Lenovo, despite being the relatively new owners of Motorola Mobility, didn't need this acquisition to produce attractive new hardware - at least for markets other than the US. The Vibe Z, which never made it to our corner of the world, looks poised to get a sequel that ups its game in every area that matters. Shots of a phone dubbed the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro have surfaced, showing a 6-inch phone with a quad HD display, a 4000mAh battery, a 16MP OIS camera with dual LED flash, and a Snapdragon 801 processor.
