Shopping Assistant Slice Gets Acquired By Japanese Online Retailer Rakuten

If you're a frequent online shopper, Slice is the ultimate tool you can install on your Android (and iOS) device. By crawling through your email inbox, Slice grabs all the details of your purchases, tracks shipments and your spendings, organizes everything into categories, deduces your shopper profile, and even monitors items for later rebates and recalls. The app has been available for over two years and has made enough of a splash that it just got acquired by Japanese online retailer Rakuten for an undisclosed amount.

Moscow-Based Smartphone Maker Yota Devices Reportedly Plans To Move To Canada In Part To Pick Up Former Blackberry Engineers

When a large tech company starts to fail, there's a real downside regardless of how we feel about its product. People lose their jobs. Often, thousands do. Many of these people then find themselves having to move to another state or country to continue working in their chosen field.

But there's an upside as well. A large layoff means there are plenty of qualified workers who are looking for work, and what better way is there for a company to acquire hot talent than to move to where the people are?

[APK Teardown] YouTube v5.9.0.10 Shows Signs Of Chapter Bookmarks, Stats For Nerds, And Some Crazy Thing Called Warp. Go Leakercats!

A couple of days ago, Google fulfilled its obligation to prevent me from sleeping by releasing a stack of newly updated apps for me to examine. Some of them were pretty straight forward, like the latest version of Android Device Manager, and others turned out to be pretty mind-boggling. That's how the YouTube update turned out.

You Can Now Play Chess On Your Face Using Just Your Voice And Google Glass

Do you remember when Windows Vista came with a pre-installed 3D version of chess? It was a good way to show off what computers were capable of, and it sure beat playing another tired round of 2D, pixelated solitaire (if only for a few moments). Aside from that, there aren't many modern examples of digital chess being all that impressive. Even in a high resolution and covered in great textures, it's still a slow-moving board game.

[New Game] Cartoon Network's 'Time Tangle' Provides All The Punch You Can Handle For $2.99

Cartoon Network has released Time Tangle into the Play Store, another game based on the Adventure Time cartoon. Instead of skiing, players are now tasked with punching. Lots and lots of punching.

In Time Tangle, there really isn't much that players can't fix just by swinging their fists. It's not exactly the best message to send to children, but they're smart enough to know better, right? Besides, this game is all about punching cute things, so it's okay.

T-Mobile is really taking a run at this whole kinder, gentler carrier thing. Among its many initiatives is the Samsung Galaxy Avant, a modestly specced phone that you can unlock (to use on other carriers) with the newly released SIM unlock app. It might come to more phones later, but it's a step in the right direction anyway.
