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.

GalaxySIII-Thumb

The Galaxy S5 may be the latest thing out, but a quarter-bajillion people around the world are still walking around with the Galaxy S III, and it benefits us all if they're running current software. An update bringing KitKat to the Sprint version of the handset started rolling out earlier this month, and now it's US Cellular's turn. The carrier has announced an OTA that should bump the device up to Android 4.4.2 via version R530UVXCND4.

AllCast-Thumb

Through a steady stream of updates, AllCast has evolved into something far more than the Chromecast streaming app it began as. Now developer Koushik Dutta has released a receiver app into the Chrome Web Store that enables the Android app to cast content straight to your web browser.

Pocket-Thumb

Pocket is one of the best apps out there for saving a webpage and deciding to read it later, a type of instapaper that reformats each saved article for optimum readability. Now the company is introducing a paid subscription model to pay the bills. As far as app subscriptions go, it's on the pricier end of things. Users will be expected to pay $4.99 a month or $44.99 a year if they want access to the newly unveiled premium features.

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.

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).
