If there is one thing that has been on my to-do lost for the biggest part of my life, it's blow stuff up with a tiny tank. Since that's highly unlikely to happen in the physical world, I can now turn to Tank Riders from Polarbit to fulfill this lifelong dream in digital space.

As you can see, Tank Riders is a damn good-looking game. The environments are rich, graphics are nice, gameplay looks smooth, and, best of all, you get to blow stuff up.

carrierIQ

We all knew it was going to happen - the first lawsuits are being filed against Carrier IQ and its data-stealing nature. Not only is CIQ getting hit with a suit, but HTC and Samsung are also being thrown into the ring since many of their phones support the software.

The suit claims that Carrier IQ is in violation of the Federal Wiretap Act, which makes intercepting "oral, wire, or electronic communications" illegal.

Sure, DisneyWorld may seem like a great place of family, fun, and joy, but Australia's Tesltra is looking to one up Walt's fun-filled world in the hearts and minds of geeks across the globe with Androidland. With a name like that, you can only imagine what sort of amazing things await behind those doors, but, luckily, that won't be necessary - check out the video:

We first told you about DSLR Controller back in August, and there was immediately some kick-back due to its combination "high" price tag and beta status. Still, if you're looking for a way to combine your Android phone or tablet with a Cannon EOS DSLR on-the-cheap, Chainfire released a free, lighter version of DSLR Controller called Remote Release into the Market just a while ago.

Remote Release offers limited functionality compared to DSLR Controller, but may fit the bill perfectly for some of you.

If you've always dreamed of brewin' and runnin' your own moonshine, but feared the slight legal implications of such a practice, then Vector Unit's new game Shine Runner holds the ticket to make all of your dreams come true.

Vector Unit is the development team behind the amazing jetski racing game Riptide GP, so we already know that they can knock out some fantastic graphics in aquatic environments, and Shine Runner looks no different.

Acer-ICONIA-TAB-A200_black-and-red-combo_low-550x329

Acer just pushed out the official announcement for its newest offering to the tablet world - the Iconia Tab A200. The interesting thing about this tablet, though, is that it's really not much different than the A500. Aesthetically, it does look different, but on the inside, it's nearly the same tablet:

Acer-ICONIA-TAB-A200_black-and-red-combo_low-550x329

  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 display
  • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 2MP front-facing camera
  • Full-size USB port, microSD card slot
  • Android 3.2

While the Iconia A200 will initially ship with Honeycomb, Acer has promised that the tablet will be sporting ICS out-of-the-box beginning in January '12.

Those who just can't get enough /r/Android in their daily life have probably heard of an app called BaconReader - a Reddit client for Android devices. We spent some time with the alpha of the app back in April, and the app has came a long way since then. It's progressed so much, in fact, that it was recently acquired by OneLouder Apps, the dev team behind some awesome apps like FriendCaster, TweetCaster, and ChannelCaster.
