Hey, do you remember the time when we posted about that really awesome password manager that could automatically log into most of your apps and websites with just one tap? Just like that other password manager, you could pay the annual subscription fee of $12 for unlimited storage, that's a decent option... But what if I told you that StackSocial is offering lifetime memberships to PasswordBox for just $9.99? I think you might have a hard time passing that up!
Over the years, Google has been shoring up security on Android in a bid to make the operating system more attractive to governments and businesses, and to reduce the threat of malware for regular users. Unfortunately, these changes often come at the expense of flexibility in our beloved platform. As we close in on the next major release of Android, due to be announced next month, SuperSU developer Chainfire has discovered a set of commits to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) that may seriously impact some of the functionality currently enjoyed by many root users.
Ask a few JRPG fans about their favorite games of all time and you're bound to hear some of them wax nostalgic for Dragon Quest VIII. After selling nearly 5 million copies worldwide, Square Enix is bringing the Playstation 2 hit to Android.

However, in typical Square Enix style, your journey isn't going to be cheap.
Update Wednesday continues with yet another new apk. This time we're being treated to a regular version bump for Chrome Beta. The changelog isn't as dramatic as we've seen in previous updates to the browser, but it's hard to turn down improvements and bug fixes. The focus seems to be a little more on fine-tuning the experience as we should see smarter suggestions for text entry and improved text rendering on non-mobile optimized web sites.
It's no secret that Bluetooth has been a problem child for Android, plagued with poor audio quality and connectivity issues. I've already covered a handful of common problems in a previous post, but another issue has been emerging in the last few months that threatens to virtually kill all Bluetooth operation on a device in the right conditions. The culprit is a nasty little oversight in the Bluetooth Low-Energy code added with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
If you were tempted to pick up a refurbished Galaxy Note 10.1 during the deal we posted earlier this week, but the 16GB internal storage left you wanting, an even more enticing offer just appeared on eBay. For just $11 more, you can score a model with 32GB built-in!

- 3GB RAM
- 32GB internal storage + MicroSD expandable storage
- 8MP rear camera / 2MP front camera

These are manufacturer refurbished units and should operate as if they are fresh off the factory floor, but they may have "light signs of use." This is a pretty remarkable deal for a 2014 model (released Oct 2013), especially since $415 is the lowest price available for a matching refurbished unit on Amazon.
If you've got a printer in your home or office, there's a pretty good chance it's made by Epson. Since the announcement of KitKat's new printer support, you might have also been looking forward to being able to send a document straight from your Android device to your Epson printer. Good news: that dream is now a reality. The manufacturer just announced that it has released a plugin to enable native printing support on Android KitKat.
