Update: As has been brought to our attention, there are other apps that do this, like Screen Filter and Lux.

When you're scrolling through a feed reader or Reddit in the wee hours of the morning on an Android phone or tablet, sometimes even the lowest of brightness settings can seem a bit too luminous.

Now, there's an app that, quite simply, allows you to plumb the depths of darkness that you had only dreamed of before.

Guys, I have some important news: the internet is a thing, and on this internet, there are other things. It's blowing my mind. And in this mindblowing, I happened upon Rockmelt (a name which subsequently blew my mind yet again). Rockmelt helps you navigate this "internet" by organizing it into categories of things you may care about, based upon your preferences. If only there were a name for such a sort of app.

Are you looking for a highly ruggedized QWERTY keyboard phone in a candybar form factor that runs a version of Android which was released almost two years ago? Of course you are! And that's exactly why A&T and NEC have announced the Terrain, so that when you get fed up with Android 4.0, you can throw it at a wall with complete and utter confidence. And type frustrated emails really, really quickly.

Two days ago, we reported on the rumored existence of a new Galaxy S4 iteration with LTE-Advanced support headed to Korea. It seems that device has been all but confirmed today, thanks to a leaked user manual with device specifications found by Japanese blog rbmen.

One of Android's most popular productivity suites, OfficeSuite, received an update to version 7.2, adding a host of new features, though most are specific to the Pro version of the app (considering how many times it's been on sale at this point, you should have it).

The gist of it is that Word docs and slides now can use shapes, spreadsheets and PowerPoint docs can be exported to PDF, and support for HP's ePrint tech has been added.

There's a lot of speculation floating around right now about the "reactivation" of the DROID Landing Twitter account, which is typically used by Verizon to tease new DROID phones. Unfortunately, we're going to have to deflate some of that speculation. Here are the tweets from the account this afternoon:

These messages seem basically without meaning taken by themselves, but there's more here than meets the eye.

America's three best channels for wasting an evening have all just received Android streaming apps, with limited access to full episodes without any TV subscription necessary on all three.

That's right - you can get full streaming episodes of some shows without providing credentials of any kind, though subscribers of Comcast and DirecTV will receive a larger pool of content to choose from than those who choose not to log in.

Huawei announced the company's first real superphone this morning in London, and it's called the Ascend P6. Catchy.

This device has been leaked an absurd number of times in the last few months, so it's not exactly a shocker, but seeing it in all its press-ready photoshopped glory is a lot more impressive than through the lens of a mediocre smartphone camera in a dimly lit room. The P6 is undoubtedly the nicest looking handset Huawei has ever produced.
