Minigore 2 arrived on Android a little over a week ago, but it was gone just days later after its ad practices were called into question. The game was basically requiring players to tap on ads to bypass mandatory wait times. It was a minor inconvenience, but a big fat violation of Google's ad policies. After a quick tweak, the game is back in Google Play under a new listing.

Motorola Moto G - Black

The Motorola direct price on the Moto G is great, but some carriers have opted to sell the phone even cheaper in an attempt to lure customers. US Cellular is following Verizon's lead today in offering the Moto G for just $99.99 off-contract. It's live on the US Cellular website right now and will be in stores February 10th.

The Moto G is $179 from Motorola as an unlocked GSM device, so you're saving a fair amount if you don't mind sticking with USC.

Thursday is traditionally a work day, but don't let us get in your way with all these cheap apps and games. No, you go ahead and keep doing you job while all these deals sit here waiting to be taken advantage of. They're just right down there... if you change your mind.

As a technology obsessed individual (hey, you're the one reading an Android blog), you probably take things like external batteries and travel routers on trips. Well, there's a product that can take the place of multiple devices, and it's on sale. The HooToo TripMate Wireless N Router has a built-in battery to keep your devices juiced up and offers wireless access to USB storage. This thing is kind of like a mobile Swiss Army knife...

Update: Cloud.TV has clarified that it will unlock the Prime features for anyone who bought the old Prime unlocker, but does not have it installed. You just need to get in touch to make that happen. That sounds reasonable.

Update 2: Dayframe Prime unlocker app is back too.

Update 3: Google has asked Dayframe to pull Chromecast support for the time being until the official Play services SDK is out.

An update to Chrome beta a few weeks ago came with the bizarre side effect that hotword detection no longer worked in the Google search app or in the Google Now Launcher (GNL). The next version of Chrome beta didn't do anything to fix it, either. Well, Google Search to the rescue – yesterday's big search update seems to have fixed hotword detection.

We've been pawing through today's Google Search update and one item in particular deserves a little more attention. Some of the cards in Google Now are getting an interesting tweak – they're bundled and have a cool animation when opened.
