Zim, A Consumer-Oriented 3D Printer That Can Be Controlled With Android Devices, Reaches $300k Kickstarter Funding Goal

We're coming to a point in human evolution where a 3D printer may actually be easier to set up and use than traditional inkjet printers, which have long offered an experience akin to dealing with splinters that break whenever you try to pull them out. Zim is a consumer-oriented 3D printer on Kickstarter that developer Zeepro promises will be fully plug & play and controllable from any number of devices, including Android smartphones and tablets.

T-Mobile To Push All Customers On Hundreds Of Grandfathered Postpaid Plans To Unadvertised "Select Value" Plans Over Next 2 Months

According to TmoNews and Howard Forums, T-Mobile is beginning the process of moving customers on some of its many, many grandfathered plans (allegedly, 350+ according to a commenter on TmoNews who pretty obviously works for T-Mobile) to unadvertised "Select Value" plans. This does not apply to customers on T-Mobile prepaid plans. T-Mobile issued official confirmation that the carrier would be forcing subscribers to migrate - that is, it's mandatory - but that customers unhappy with the change (after being notified) can cancel service before February 1st next year without paying any early termination fees.

Verizon Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Updated To vI915VRBMH3, Gets Ethernet Connection Support, SD Card Storage For Apps, And More

Verizon has pumped an OTA system update down the pipeline for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 that adds a few nice features that should pump more life into a tablet that is now a year and a half old. Owners who have maxed out their 16 or 32GB of internal storage will be pleased to know that they can now move apps to an SD card, an option that can be a godsend for a tablet that may be used primarily for gaming.

[New App] Dessin Is Like Tasker With Visual 'Mind-Maps' Of Actions And Rules

Tasker is the current king of Android automation, but it's not exactly easy to use. Other apps have tried and failed to make it easier to understand the complex actions and various dependencies that arise when you automate Android. Dessin takes a completely visual approach to setting up actions – it's a little like an interactive flow chart. Is this the next big thing in Android automation?

Dessin is designed around a series of nodes, each one with specific actions like toggling WiFi or silencing the phone.

Angry Birds Go Kart Racer Is A Go For December 11th, And The First Gameplay Video Actually Looks Pretty Good

There comes a point in the life of every great gaming franchise where all original gameplay ideas have been exhausted. And right after that point, the developers give up and make a kart racer. For Rovio's omnipresent Angry Birds, the game is Angry Birds Go, a racing game that travels down the same well-trodden path as Mario Kart and a million also-rans. It comes out December 11th.

As cynical as that opening statement is, I have to admit that Angry Birds Go looks like a pretty amazing kart racer.

GravityBox Is The Mother Of All Xposed Framework Modules For Nexus Devices And AOSP 4.1+ ROMs

The Xposed framework has opened up some interesting mods. Most of them do only a few things. Some of them do a lot more. GravityBox does a lot more than that. This module from XDA Developers member C3C076 (keep 'em comin, guys) seems to incorporate all the little tweaks that people generally flash a custom ROM for, but it's built for stock Nexus devices and "clean" AOSP ROMs.

Aviate Launcher Goes Beta With Improved Contextual Awareness, Interface Tweaks - We Have 500 Invites

The popular invite-only contextual launcher Aviate upgraded today from Alpha to Beta. It's still invite-only, but it's definitely worth looking at, as one of the most powerful alpha products I've ever used just got even better. (Did I mention we have an invite code good for 500 invites later in the post?)

The team behind Aviate promises that, besides new features, the beta launch means that the full wait list of users will be brought on board, with all users getting five invite codes to dole out to friends.

PushBullet Updated To Version 11.3, Introduces Push-To-Chrome, List Transfers, And More

Now the app is taking a bold step towards making it just as easy to move data in the opposite direction. The latest update to version 11.3 introduces push-to-Chrome, a promised feature that should make it possible to get links, notes, pictures, and other content onto any computer running Chrome. The update also introduces the ability to push lists for the first time, and when you create a new push using the app, you can now select what you want to push directly.
