Back in the Froyo/Gingerbread days, GO was my go-to launcher. It had more features and better performance (in my opinion) than any of the other options. After Ice Cream Sandwich, however, I kind of forgot about it.

Turns out the GO Team is still alive and kicking, and it just pushed out version 5 of its EX launcher, complete with a new flat theme and improved functionality. If you're tired of the same ol', same ol', this may be exactly what you need to breathe some fresh life into your device.

We knew it was coming, but that doesn't make it any less weird to me. Samsung is now rolling out an update to the original Galaxy Gear that effectively removes Android, replacing it with the company's self-built mobile OS, Tizen (which is what the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit are all running). This immediately raises one question in my mind: since "Galaxy" is Samsung's branding for Android devices, will it just be called "Gear" moving forward?

The number of Bluetooth speakers I've looked at in the past year (give or take) is vast. As a result, I feel like I have a good understanding of what's available on the market, as well as what offers the most bang for the buck. As time has gone on, I've started holding each new speaker to a higher level, because the competition is just too stiff not to. Manufacturers absolutely have to one up the other guys if they want to stand out in this saturated market.

Smartphones are probably some of the most personal devices on the planet. They hold our contacts. Our family photos. Our, um, personal photos. Text messages. Private conversations. Many of a person's secrets could probably be uncovered with a little exploration of their smartphone. So, what's the best way to keep things safe on your smartphone? With a little security, of course.

Android offers a few of its own solutions to keeping your private data private, like a customizable unlock pattern, password, or PIN code on the lockscreen.

I've long dreamed of the day when I can get in the car and go places without having to actually pay attention to my driving (or other drivers around me). To be able to use my laptop, phone, or tablet; watch a movie, read a book, or any of the other things I'd rather be doing instead of driving would be fantastic – and make long road trips much more bearable.

If you like cars that go way too fast beside (or at least near) each other, there's a good chance you're into some form of auto racing. While that in itself can be a pretty expensive hobby, you can supplement your desire to drive way too fast with games on your smartphone. Yes, I know it's not the same thing, I'm just trying to save you a few hundred thousand dollars, OK?

You guys like streaming Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, and lots of others to your TV, right? Of course you do, because bigger is better when it comes to watching movies, videos, or TV. It's a scientific fact.

Today, users in both Australia and Japan are finally able to get that satisfied feeling of hitting the "Connect to Chromecast" button, as Google's nifty little streaming gadget is now available in both countries.

It'll set Australian users back $50, and is available from Google Play, Dick Smith, and JB HiFi, according to Ausdroid.

Since the launch of the Moto X, there have been two available storage options: 16GB and 32GB. For some users, 32GB just isn't enough without an SD card slot (seriously though, what are you guys doing with your phones?). Fortunately, it looks like Moto may be gearing up to launch a 64GB variant of the X, which looks to be available with a $100 price bump over the 16GB version.

Most places love to hold sales over Memorial Day weekend, as it's sort of the unofficial start of summer. Those deals aren't exclusive to brick-and-mortar retail stores, of course, and some really nice bargains readily pop up online.

NewEgg is one such retailer offering some good deals on a few Android tablets – one you've heard of, and a couple you probably haven't. Here's the skinny:

While most of you are likely familiar with the 2012 Nexus 7, there's less of a chance the specs of the other two are fresh on your mind.

Oh, EVGA. I know you're new to this whole tablet thing, but you should seriously watch your automated email system just a little bit better.

Today, owners of EVGA products – which includes the Tegra Note 7 tablet – are receiving an email that contains some fantastic tips and pointers...for those who have purchased EVGA video cards. Not such good advice for those who only own the TN7.

Dear EVGA Member,,

Thank you for your purchase from EVGA!
