Evan Blass may be retired from leaking, but don't count him completely out yet – he just dropped the first official render we've seen of the Nexus 6.

While there are a few differences here and there, this looks quite a bit like our render from late last month, especially on the hardware side of things.

Three years ago (or thereabouts), if you would've asked me about Acer tablets, my response would likely have been something similar to DeAndre Jordan's face after this nasty dunk over Brandon Knight back in 2013. Or, to put it a little more bluntly, there probably wouldn't have been anything positive to say. At all.

The company has come a long way since then, and I feel like it has been offering especially good value for the money as of late, and the Iconia Tab 8 may be the crown jewel of its collection.

Guys, we're now three weeks away from the most wonderful time of the year: NBA basketball season. The seasons tips off on October 28th with the Mavs v. Spurs and Magic v. Pelicans, followed by the Rockets in LA to take on the Lakers. The following day it gets even more exciting, as 24 teams go head to head to start the season off right. If you don't want to miss a second of the action, Game Time is the app to have (especially if you're a League Pass subscriber), and it recently got updated with support for the upcoming season.

It's hard to believe that it's been nearly a year since Google rebranded Play Magazines to Newsstand, essentially combining Magazines and Currents into one app. While we've seen updates come and go to Newsstand over the months, today's update marks the biggest one yet: a complete makeover.

According to the Android Blog, Newsstand is now using Material Design, which incorporates "larger images, more contextual headers, and smoother transitions" into the overall feel of the app.

Drinking alcohol is a thing people like to do. Unsurprisingly, some people aren't sure when enough is enough, so they continue to drink said alcohol until things get...bad. We've looked at a couple of different BACtrack Mobile Breathlyzers in the past - the $50 Vio and its more accurate $130 brother - which would help one quantify how intoxicated they actually are by reading their blood alcohol content level (as opposed to what?

Two months ago, we looked at the newest member of the SHIELD family, NVIDIA's SHIELD Tablet. This eight-inch beast is one of the first devices to feature NVIDIA's screaming fast Tegra K1 processor, which makes it not only a killer gaming tablet, but an all-around great digital sidekick for general use. I've used it for everything from Trine 2 gaming sessions on the TV (in Console Mode) to writing full reviews with an external keyboard, and it has been up to the task every time.

It's basically my job to type, so I type a lot. There's quite a bit more to it than that, of course, but typing is kind of the cornerstone of being a writer of any kind. Because of the amount of typing I do, a good keyboard is important. Not just a good keyboard for my desktop and laptop, but when I'm going to be doing some work on my tablet, I need something I can trust there, too.

Every kid loves Legos, and most people in general have loved Legos at one point in their life (the only exception are people who were never kids). It's one of those toys that has stood the test of time – kids have not only enjoyed, but basically obsessed over Legos for more than 60 years. That's pretty impressive.

One of the reasons why Lego has been able to maintain popularity is because it's constantly evolving as a toy.

There comes a time in ever person's life when they need to charge and/or sync like seven things at once. For years we've been left on our own to figure out how to deal with this quandary – do we use seven different chargers scattered all throughout the house? Fewer chargers and alternate devices on charge? Try to use the same charger for everything? There really isn't a good solution.

The folks over at Eggtronic knew there had to be a better way.
