Sure, Android Wear is just around the corner, but Qualcomm is still focusing on the Toq. An update to version 1.5.5_14602 is rolling out and it finally adds a feature that virtually every digital watch has had since the 80s. Yes, a stopwatch.

The stopwatch does all the usual stopwatch-y things like count upward, track lap times, and stop counting when you hit the stop button. Revolutionary. Also in this update is support for the next version of the Toq SDK – v1.5.

You've got a new billing option in Google Play if you're a customer of Canadian carrier Telus or O2 in the UK. Fire up the Play Store, and you'll see carrier billing pop up in the checkout screen. Yay, another way to give Google money.

There was once a time when sending a risqué picture meant coping with the possibility that it would be out there forever, then Snapchat happened along to delete those pics automatically (this does not constitute a guarantee). Now Facebook is looking to get in on the sexting* game with its own take on Snapchat called Slingshot.

Attention marine, there's a war to be fought, and those orcs aren't going to just kill themselves. Oh... but, did you bring any money? Because we're going to need that. What? Chainsword fuel is expensive. But in seriousness, we were in need of a more traditional Warhammer game after the tower defense-style Storm of Vengeance came out, and Carnage might be it.

Your phone probably has a lot of stuff on it, right? Terrain Launcher (funded by Samsung Accelerate) claims it helps you stay organized like no other launcher. A dubious claim perhaps, but early reviews are positive. Terrain focuses on three features: a sidebar, universal search, and an enhanced app drawer.

The folks at Cyanogen Inc. are busy with more than the OnePlus One launch, if that's what you call this. There are also a pair of new apps in the Play Store. Theme Showcast pretties up your CM11-based device, and Gallery Next is live, but only for the OnePlus One right now.

Those little pictographic symbols on your keyboard are about to get much more expansive now that Unicode 7.0 has been released. Yes, the designers of emoji don't just come up with this stuff on their own – they are part of the text presentation standards that keeps letters consistent across platforms. Included in the new emoji are gems like a thermometer, a chipmunk, a middle finger, and a diesel locomotive...

Lo, and then the lord did tap the touchscreen interface and cause great mountains to rise up from the landscape. Then with a swipe and a tap, the lord did create all the creatures of the land. Following all that, the lord made the sky purple, just because, for this god is a confusing and temperamental god. This and so much more is what awaits you in Topia World Builder, which has just hit Android after a good long run on iOS.

Oppo announced the Find 7 in two flavors a few months ago, but it only sold the lower end Find 7a until now. Preorders are finally live for the Oppo Find 7 with a better screen, more RAM, and more storage. It'll also cost you a little more money, but not as much as you might expect.
