If you're sick of shooting birds from slingshots and would prefer the feathery foes to be on the receiving side of damage, then Shoot the Birds from Infinite Dreams is a game you should definitely check out. You play the part of a pumpkin-headed, crossbow wielding hero who hates birds and the problems that they cause, ready to execute them all with a rain of arrows.

Judging by the teaser video, the gameplay looks simple enough to figure out, while the graphics and animations look very well done and easy on the eyes.

If you have the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and keyboard dock, there's a chance that you've noticed the dock's built-in battery draining quicker than it should. This is a problem quite a few users are experiencing, and a member of the Transformer Forums by the name of ASUSFAN001 set out to get an answer to the issue directly from ASUS itself.

As it turns out, ASUS is completely aware of the issue and will discuss it openly with customers.

The EVO 3D is easily one of the hottest phones on Sprint right now, and with good reason. It's fast, functional, fluid, and brings a lot of incredible features to the table, like 3D and Sense 3.0. If you've been waiting for a good deal to come along before dumping your current carrier and switching to The Now Network, now is the time, as Amazon Wireless is letting this 3D shooter go for $99 with a new two-year agreement.

Let's get real for a minute, shall we? When I say real, I mean real -- let's talk about protection. We all know of it, and while some of us use it regularly, others go without it all the time. Not only is this a horrible practice, but it's just not safe for any of the involved parties. Think about it, if you will -- what potential consequences could you suffer from going without protection?

Game dev Polarbit recently released a new offering to the Android Market called Reckless Getaway, where you play the part of a wheelman after a bank robbery. Carrying the same kill-or-be-killed vibe as Reckless Racing, it's your job to get away from the fuzz any way you see fit -- including throwing them into oncoming traffic, walls, or whatever other element you can find.

The game features 17 all-new tracks, simple controls, realistic physics and controls, as well as unlockable levels and games modes. 

Reckless Getaway will set you back $2.99, and you can grab it by hitting the widget below.

Samsung just started pushing a small, 3.22MB update to the Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab 10.1, most likely to address bugs that were introduced with TouchWiz UX. It's unclear exactly what the update fixes, only that it "improves stability."

I must warn you, though -- I accepted the download on my rooted Tab 10.1 with ClockworkMod recovery, and after the installation was complete, the screen went black (but remained on) and nothing else happened.

Former Blackberry users may recognize the name Bellshare from such apps as BerryBuzz/BeBuzz and BerryWeather, but now the devs are trying their hand at Android apps -- and they're asking for users to come forward to do some beta testing. BeWeather looks to be a pretty impressive weather tracker, offering current conditions, wind, pressure, dew point, and humidity in your choice of 11 different widgets.

It doesn't stop there, though, as it also offers high def videos, 7-day and 24-hour forecast, geolocation, weather advisories via push notification, animated maps, sunrise/sunset times and moon phase, all inside of a completely customizable interface.

Best Buy will be offering a pretty incredible deal beginning this Sunday, August 21st -- buy a qualifying Samsung HDTV, and you'll score a free 16GB Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Of course, the big question is: what defines "qualifying" in the mind of Best Buy? In order to snag the free Tab 10.1, you must purchase a Samsung 46" LED 1080p Smart 3D HDTV, which will set you back around $1500.

We recently started a new series of posts called the Mobile Security App Shootout, which focuses on keeping our devices safe and recovering them if lost or stolen. Along those same lines comes an amazing Tasker/Locale plugin centered around the device security called Secure Settings.

Designed for Android 2.2+, Secure Settings offers a plethora of features for both rooted and non-rooted users, including quick keyguard toggle and lock, Linux run command, set or reset password/pin, device wake, or wireless ADB (root only).

Google's dedicated RSS aggregator, simply called Reader, received an update today that brings full Honeycomb support, as well as a few minor improvements to the app. Added features include a new layout and an improved method of marking items as read, which consists of long pressing on the item.

The Honeycomb layout is a familiar one -- it shares the same look-and-feel as its desktop brother now. While the inclusion of a new Honeycomb interface is a much-needed one, I can honestly say the experience doesn't compare to that of the other RSS readers in the Market, namely Newsr.
